The Star Child

The Star Child


Published September 21st 2012 by Inkspell Publishing

ISBN: 139780985656249.

The world is about to be cloaked in darkness. Only one can stop the night.

Kellen St. James has spent his entire life being overlooked as an unwanted, ordinary, slightly geeky kid. That is until a beautiful girl, one who has haunted his dreams for the past eleven years of his life, shows up spinning tales of a prophecy. Not just any old prophecy either, but one in which Kellen plays a key role.

Suddenly, Kellen finds himself on the run through a Celtic underworld of faeries and demons, angels and gods, not to mention a really ticked off pack of hellhounds, all in order to save the world from darkness. But will they make it in time?

A seasoned, facilitator, Mrs. Keyes worked in Training and Development for an international telecommunications corporation for twelve years; spending the first eight years of her career as a Software Trainer and Technical Writer and the last four working in Human Resources and Employee Development.

Inkspell Publishing will release her first novel, The Star Child, on September 21, 2012. She is now currently at work on the second book in The Star Child Trilogy, The Fallen Stars.

Keyes lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two children, and Riley the dog.

Kellen, are male lead protagonist, is a smart, college educated 17 yr.old! Yes, 17 and already a college graduate, so you already know he is super smart! That really doesn't change the fact that he has no support from his family, his mother died, his father is not the greatest, and he can't explain his recurring dreams, that he  has been having for years.

Kellan decides to set off to Ireland, to his recently deceased grandmother's home as he is drawn to the country via his dreams, and a girl who seems to always appear in them.

Caliente, the girl in his dreams, shows Kellan there is more to his dreams and introduces him to another world.
A world unlike ours, filled with creatures. These creatures include Faires, Gods, demons, gargoyles, and many more...

Kellan must fill a prophecy, along with the help of Caliente their journey embarks them over the land fighting the "evils" of this "other" world.

The Star Child was a good read, although slow at times the pace did pick up as the adventure was played out and the action rivets up as these two journey across the "other world". I would recommend this book to Fantasy, epic readers, but I would keep it under the middle grade genre.

  2. It's got a lovely cover. I it's simple enough to probably fit under the middle grade definition though, it's probably not for me. Great review, Lisa!

  3. That's great that you noted it's more MG. Spmetimes I'm in the mood for MG, but not often. I'm glad you liked this. Nice review!

  4. This looks like a really interesting book to me. I have a feeling it's going to be kind of a sleeper for a little while and then a lot of people are going to discover it. I already think it sounds like a cool story. I'd certainly like to win a copy. Thanks.

  5. While I don't read middle grade myself, I do keep an eye out for anything my son would like, and I think this would be one that might interest him. Thanks for the review and giveaway

  6. My teen would LOVE this book! She reads like a maniac and it's sooooooooooo hard to keep her in books...her librarian at her school can't keep up with her either...LOL! Thank you for the giveaway!
