Janelle Reads and Writes

Lover of the written word! Join me as I discuss books, both my own and those I've read and loved.

Falling Stars (A Surah Stormsong Novel, #2) - H.D. Gordon I just finished this, and I almost don't know what to say. It was so incredibly good, my brain is still trying to catch up with what just happened. Anyone who is a fan of H.D. knows that she loves to throw a lot of twist and turns at her readers. This makes for the type of story that literally leaves you on the edge of your seat. So much is happening in the second installment, I think fans are going to love it even more than the first. If you weren't hooked by Shooting Stars, you definitely will be now. Surah is the perfect mix of badass and vulnerability. Watching her figure out her feelings toward Charlie was an amazing journey for me. Their relationship is slow and sweet, and leaves me with a huge grin on my face. Charlie is once again lovable and hot. The supporting characters add another level of richness to the story, which I adored. If you know me, you know how much I like dual POVs, so it's no surprise that I loved that about this book as well. I actually liked Michael, aka Blackheart, even though we're not supposed to. He adds a little spice to the story, and his lover, the fae Queen, is quite possibly one of my favourite characters of all time. Every time she's in a seen I laugh out loud. And of course there's Samson...I wish he was real...and mine.
Falling Stars hits it out of the park. Most people say the second book in the series is hard to get right, and often doesn't live up to the first, but that is in no way the case here. I think this story is just getting started, and all of us readers are in for a ride. I can't wait to see where this series goes.
Pick this one up when it's out! You won't want to miss it! Well done, H.D. :)
