I was given an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of When Stars Die by the author Amber Skye Forbes before its initial release in December 2013, in exchange for an honest review. I wasn't actually able to fully give my attention to reading When Stars Die until recently.
However, when I delved into this interesting tale, I was submerged into the dark and incredible story of Amelia and her chaotic, strange and dangerous world. The complexities of her relationships, the religious tones that make one think, and the sheer unsettling dialogue that the author weaves is truly astounding.
This debut novel from Amber Skye Forbes, with tales of witchery, forbidden romance and so much more; is one that should not be missed. I look forward to reading the entire series as the books become available and can't wait to find out what happens next. The initial read was shocking and leaves the reader dangling for more. Definitely NOT a dull read.
Download When Stars Die by Amber Skye Forbes. This paranormal tale is refreshingly original and the concept extremely imaginative. The characters are well developed and allows the reader to fully understand the flow of the story-telling.

Synopsis via B&N:
Shadowy figures haunt Amelia's days in Cathedral Reims, and they are waiting for her to join them. Redemption isn't possible for a witch, but she's committed her life to trying, as long as she can protect her younger brother, Nathaniel. What she doesn't realize is that Nathaniel's been seeing the figures too, and that both of them are about to be submerged into a much different - and more frightening - world than they ever knew existed. The only one they can trust is the dangerously attractive priest, Oliver Cromwell. But will he be able to save them?
