The Star by Clemy Warner Thompson - Review

Book: The Star

Author: Clemy Warner Thompson

Genre: Young Adult, Urban Fantasy

The Star was such a good book! As soon as the book started, I fell for Jake. But not long after, he dies. Then Nate appears. Trust me, I fell for him too! They were all such wonderful characters! I loved Abbii. She was reserved and an outcast. Very relatable. I really loved this story. It was perfect! The story line itself was very well planned out, and the book well written. The book held a lot of secrets that were revealed along the way. I was shocked when I found out about Jake and Nate being one. And then the way this book ended? I don't want to give too much away, but let me just say that I can't wait to find out what is going to happen in the next book! Definitive 5 out of 5 stars! 

Book Description:
Abbii had been afraid of the dark for four long years. She hated the eerie silence that filled the night.

She would often try to forget by closing her eyes at night, but she would always be met by dreams of Shadows that would attack her, dragging her into the Darkness. Most nights, she would simply lie there with her bedding wrapped tightly around her, staring at the light coming in through her window, hoping that she would drift off into a dreamless sleep.

Ever since that day four years ago, the dark had frightened her; she had thought it would be a curse throughout the whole of her life, but something changed when she met him.

The dark seemed to lose its power and the moon’s light brightened.

Her dreams didn’t stop; nightmares still stole her sleep, but there was always a figure of Light that would save her and allow her to wake.

He said the same thing every night in her dreams. Keep fighting, Abbii.

She thought that he was part of her imagination, someone that she had created to save her, until she met him and was drawn into his bright hazel eyes.

His name was Nate.

Author Bio:

I was born in England in the West Midlands in 1991 where I am still currently living, growing up alongside one younger and three older brothers.

Books and writing was an interest that I began to develop from the first years of secondary school, and on my thirteenth birthday, I began to plan and design the idea to write a fantasy novel. I finished secondary school with high GCSE’s and then went on into further education to study English and all aspects of art and design. After six years of writing, planning and overall editing of the book, it was successfully completed, containing over 82,000 words, and self-published in the first week of 2011.

With high expectations in myself, I immediately began to write a second novel in the series, while keeping my art and design a part of the process. The achievement of completing the first novel ‘Purest Light,’ allowed the ideas of the second to flow much easier and it was completed by early 2012. As I was writing the third and final book, New Beginnings, at the same time, the series was finished by its publication in 2013.

Writing is now a part of my every day and I have started on my newest project, The Star, which is also planned to be the first of three. Only time will tell.
