"Continuing adventures the royal family of planet Oasis"
In this continuation of the Star series, Circe witches
continue to plot against the royal family of planet Oasis.
Sovereigns Shaun and Lily [STARGAZER] have kept the birth
of their twin children a secret. Alexander and Arielle
have been raised in a secluded world, one the teens view as
a luxurious prison. On the day of their 18th birthday
celebration, Zander's frustration explodes in an argument
with his parents and his running away to the Senate and the
hands of the Circe witches.
Boone [Tess' child in SHOOTING STAR] returns for the twin's
birthday and finds his ship 'borrowed' by Zander. He and
Elle fly after her brother, but are too late to save him
from the Circe witches. All their lives change that day...
Zander is believed dead and Boone, the only man she'd ever
loved is believed killed trying to rescue him. Elle
considers the only path she has is to learn to use her
psi-powers and move into a position of strength. Now only
time will tell what her years of planning have put into motion.
STAR SHADOWS is a futuristic adventure with a strong romance
sub-plot. Author Colby Hodge has a writing style that even
though you can guess where the story is going, you enjoy
reading her tale and meeting the characters. It was good
to renew acquaintances from previous books. Both Boone and
Zander are faced with soul-destroying choices and Elle
grows from a spoiled girl into a powerful warrior princess.
STAR SHADOWS ends with a HEA for Boone and Elle, but the
final battle with the Circe witches is yet to come.
