Michelle is a fellow TWCS author, the publisher that will put out my first book, "Wrong Place, Right Time," in December. When she told me about her book, she downplayed it a bit and said I might not want to read it because it was YA and a bit on the paranormal side. Because of that I didn't read it at first. But then the opportunity for the blog tour came up and I figured I'd give it a shot. Boy was I glad I did. It was fast paced and descriptive and very entertaining.
This book was very intriguing from the start all the way through the finish. I wasn't sure about it because of the genre, but once I started reading it, I realized it didn't matter if it was YA or not, I enjoyed it! I have read YA before in the form of Michael Vey books by Richard Paul Evans and plenty of others. In the end, who cares what the target audience is? You enjoy it if you enjoy it!
Books like these fascinate me because I always wonder how in the world the author comes up with the premise. As an author, I imagine and create things, but I never create whole different realms and worlds like Michelle Birbeck and other authors in this genre do. It takes quite the imagination!
The idea behind the book was interesting. Stars fall out of the sky to right wrongs. In this case, the wrong is that humans are destroying the earth. The fact that the idea behind the book is actually true in real life only makes it more poignant.
So overall I really enjoyed the book, though I would recommend it for older teens and adults and not for younger teens because of a few scenes she included. If you're looking for something out of this world that is grounded at the same time...or just something fully entertaining that will help your day fly by, read "The Stars are Falling."
