To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased & had book #9 sent to my granddaughter to read, as she has been reading this book series. She was absolutely thrilled to receive & so enjoys this series. Hopefully more will be written by the author. I had bought the book wks prior to its release date & was very pleased with the service as book was sent & delivered 1 day later following publication. Excellent service! Thank you.
Nothing new happens in this book until the very end!!!! It is whinny and repetitive. I have really enjoyed reading this series to my children but sometimes people need to learn when it is time to wrap things up.
This is an amazing series that I would recommend to fans of the school for good and evil, Harry Potter, and the divergent series. I loved all the characters and mysteries, and this book is full of unexpected twists and turns.
3,5 stars because i feel deceived. In book 9, we have very little Keefe and when finally he shows up, it's a very fast read. We have almost no time to enjoy Sophie and Keefe's scenes together. Yes we have chapter 42, but as a huge SOPHIE- KEEFE fan, i'm upset bc i had to "deal" ( very patiently 😖) with Sophie and Fitz scenes in previous books and i had to wait NINE books to finally have SOPHIE and KEEFE together and it's too little, too fast. The ending and Vespera's death??!! As usual, after NINE books, our heroes are not able to defeat any enemy; Vespera is killed by an enemy herself. I did not see any change from the previous books seriously. In the first 500 and something pages we have lots and lots of dialogue and everything seems to be the same, Keefe's powers could have been used to something in this book but we saw Nothing at all. And book 10 will be the last? I hope not, because it will feel even more rushed. It's impossible to have a conclusion of this complex history and characters in only ONE book. Not to mention SOPHIE and Keefe: i want to see them as a couple, a REAL COUPLE in more than one book and with no more Fitz drama btw them, bc we had enough. I want to see the heroes to win and defeating their enemies by themselves. Elysian is a villain or a good guy??? I hope to be the last, bc this story has already too many villains, very hard to kill -apparently like cockroaches- We don't need another one impossible to kill by our heroes. From book 8.5 to book 9, i was expecting an amazing book and this book seemed - except for the little we had btw SOPHIE and KEEFE - another filler book. Sorry, but i want more, much more than this and i know that you can do it, SM. Less dialogue, more romance/scenes btw SOPHIE and KEEFE, please, bc they are favorites 😉
Oh my, it was an absolute joy to read Stellarlune. Packed full with buckets of emotions: one minute I was crying, the other minute spluttering with laughter (thanks to Ro!). And in between, biting my nails with suspense, and of course, feeling TONS of cringe and second hand embarrassment for our lovely, oblivious Foster as she ploughs through very relatable, very familiar teen drama. Initially the pace of the story was kinda slow, but once it picked up speed, I didn’t want to put it down! I’m a fan of the dialogues, the chemistry between the characters, and how smoothly they’ve evolved through the series…it all makes feel so alive and real. Which is why Sophie and her gang will forever hold a special place in my memories. Overall excellent delivery once again. Excited to see what comes next!
My favorite series and ofc we gotta love the infamous chapter 42 but I was hoping for more team FosterKeefe :( but still love it and wish this series would never end! We need WAY more team FosterKeefe and WAY more Dex, the little cinammonroll:)
