Blog Tour: The Star by C. Warner Thompson!

Publication date: 2nd June 2013
Paperback edition: 236 pages
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: Abbii had been afraid of the dark for four long years. She hated the eerie silence that filled the night.

She would often try to forget by closing her eyes at night, but she would always be met by dreams of Shadows that would attack her, dragging her into the Darkness. Most nights, she would simply lie there with her bedding wrapped tightly around her, hoping that she would drift off into a dreamless sleep.

Ever since that day four years ago, the dark had frightened her; she had thought it would be a curse throughout the whole of her life, but something changed when she met him.

The dark seemed to lose its power and the moon’s light brightened.

Her dreams didn’t stop; nightmares still stole her sleep, but there was always a figure of Light that would save her and allow her to wake.

He said the same thing every night in her dreams. Keep fighting, Abbii.

She thought that he was part of her imagination, someone that she had created to save herself, until she met him and was drawn into his bright hazel eyes.

His name was Nate.

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this book after I signed up for the Cover Reveal and was then asked if I would like to join the Blog Tour! It sounded good from the synopsis, but the synopsis also didn't give anything away, so I wasn't really sure! I was quite eager to find out the story behind the synopsis though! This book was really good! It impressed me, but I felt that it was missing something as well! I thought that it started a little slow and there was quite a lot in it, but I enjoyed it at the same time! The plot was pretty unique! I haven't really read anything like it before! I did find it a little confusing at some points, but as the story progressed I was able to make out certain things that helped me understand what I couldn't before! The plot did get a little weird for me at the end! I started to lose what was actually happening and I sort of started to skim over it because I lost a bit of interest as it didn't go in the direction that I thought it would! The characters were great and really impressed me! Abbii was someone who was slightly lost in her life! She was trying to find answers and she was determined to get them! Abbii discovered so much about herself during this book and she also discovered how important she was! I think that she handled learning all of this very well! She got a lot thrown at her in such a short space of time, but she took it all in her stride and she was determined to do something about it! Nate was the love interest of Abbii and he was so cute! I loved how protective he was of Abbii and how much he cared about her! A massive secret about Nate is revealed and the end of this book and I can honestly say that I didn't see it coming! It was an amazing twist! I liked that this book was written from Abbii and Nate's point of view as I loved getting to go into both of their heads! There were so many other characters in this book as well and they added so much to the story! I think that I heard that this book is book one of three books and I can say that I will probably read the rest of this series as The Star was an okay book, but the squeals probably won't be at the top of my TBR list! The cover did draw me to this book! I think it suits the book perfectly! You can see how much the cover suits the book after you have read it! Big thank you to Clemy for a copy of The Star and to Ann and Penelope for having me on the Blog Tour!

Author bio:

I was born in England in the West Midlands in 1991 where I am still currently living, growing up alongside one younger and three older brothers.

Books and writing was an interest that I began to develop from the first years of secondary school, and on my thirteenth birthday, I began to plan and design the idea to write a fantasy novel. I finished secondary school with high GCSE's and then went on into further education to study English and all aspects of art and design. After six years of writing, planning and overall editing of the book, it was successfully completed, containing over 82,000 words, and self published in the first week of 2011.

With high expectations in myself, I immediately began to write a second novel in the series, while keeping my art and design a part of the process. The achievement of completing the first novel 'Purest Light,' allowed the ideas of the second to flow much easier and it was completed by early 2012. As I was writing the third and final book, New Beginnings, at the same time, the series was finished by its publication in 2013.

Writing is now a part of my everyday and I have started on my newest project, The Star, which is also planned to be the first of three. Only time will tell.
