Starfall by R. M. Anderson

 *I recieved a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.




Title: Starfall

Author: R. M. Anderson

Series: Book one in the Starfall Chronicles

Published: July 10th, 2018

Genre: Fantasy



[My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.5 Stars]




  Synopsis:  Radianne Timblebrooke has grown bored with life as she knows it and aches for something more: Adventure, a path of her own, and... maybe... even true love?

On one fateful evening, a blinding light falls into her world and changes it all, bringing the adventure she longed for and much more.

In a race against time to the stars, Radianne discovers beauty, love, strength, and a force that threatens to cover her world in shadows. Little does she know that adventure comes at a cost... a cost that will bring her to the brink of losing everything.






  Holy Macoroni- the world was so amazing. If you want a fantasy and adventure- this book is what you want. Giant ladybugs, dangerous terrains that were so unique, and characters that infuriated each other but also grew because of each other! Like a mix of Gregor the Overlandor by Suzanne Collins and The Watcher of the Night Sky by Rachel Pudsey.


The Writing was beautiful and creative, the first chapter was so wonderfully worded and poetic it hit me like a ton of bricks (don't ask me why, but apparently I'm a sucker for beautifully worded things). It almost felt like I was reading a poem or short story in the first chapter- that would set up the rest of the story. And that's exactly what it was.


The Characters, oh buddy, the characters.
  So I really wanted to like Radianne at first (and through most of the book) but it was hard the first part of the book. She was a naive thing that just wanted to have an adventure and got mad at someone that wanted to help her because she felt he was taking away her adventure.
 But! That did change and I was so happy with her character development, as well as all the others' growth. Like I said, the characters all infuriated each other- but they also helped each other grow.

Blink however, will always be a perfect cinnamon roll to me :)



Bottom Line: A book that is definitely worth giving a try.

Thanks for reading, Have a lovely day!! <3<3<3

  2. Oooo, I really like that cover! I also love it when characters don't get along at first (okay I do hate them) but eventually get along and change for the better. I hope the second book to Starfall will be a much better experience for you when you get the chance to read it. ^_^
