What Readers are Saying
As fantasy, with plenty of magic involved, the book has a sort of C.S. Lewis/ Tolkien feel to it. The characters spoke to me. Books don't often capture me and leave me turning pages when I should be sleeping in anticipation of a conference presentation. This one did. Then, at the airport and on the trip back, I read it again. I enjoyed it even more the second time. Subtleties I had missed in the first read were revealed. I look forward to the next book in the series.
I’m upset my book has ended. So so good. I cannot wait for the second one.
This book was so well written. The characters had real depth and it didn't feel flat like so many new books I've tried. The story was gripping and I love that there were realistic bonds and struggles between the siblings. Well worth reading!!
If you love normal, ordinary characters discovering they have magic abilities and transporting into other worlds/planets of magical creatures, assassins, and medieval societies; then this is the book for you! I found 'Mark of Stars' incredibly fun to read, and I honestly could not put it down once I started. What makes this book unique are the strong bonds between family and friends that are already established at the beginning of the book. After reading so many orphan tropes, it was refreshing reading about a protagonist who has a support team from the get-go.
An excellent book by a new author. The characters are believable and their struggles are real She keeps the action moving right along. It was fun to see some familiar names from the King Arthur stories and how these were a part of some modern adventures into magic. The glossary was excellent and very helpful!
I really enjoyed this book, the tesseract on Emma's palm was intriguing to start off and Luke's visions...and then the story built really well and finding out what it all means was so fun and interesting! I found myself wanting to do nothing else except get back to reading! Very creative and I cannot wait for book 2 now!
Thoroughly enjoyed reading Mark of Stars. So much so that I went to bed too late two nights in a row! Magic, danger and a little coach speak! If you are wondering if you should read it, do it. You won’t be sorry.
This book is perfect for the entire family to be transported to another time and place. The storyline is compelling and the lead characters are incredibly likable. Soon after picking up this book you will find yourself rooting for Emma, Luke and Bethany as they work to solve a mystery and save the Kingdom of Renova. I can’t wait to continue this adventure with the second book.
The book is a compelling read from start to finish! Set in an alternate universe where Camelot exists not in the past but parallel to our universe we are introduced to a well-adjusted and loving family with magical powers not of this world! Colleen paints a beautiful portrait of a world with swords, magic and fantasy while keeping us grounded with well-rounded characters, a believable setting and a heartfelt story about learning the powers that come from within. The tension she builds is truly compelling - making this a real page-turner!
I loved the characters and couldn't put it down needed to know what happens next can't wait till the next book!
