Présentation de l'éditeur

For eighteen year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. Up until recently, she has been incapable of feeling emotion. And when she’s around Alex, the gorgeous new guy at school, she can feel electricity that makes her skin buzz. Not to mention the monsters that haunt her nightmares have crossed over into real-life.

But with Alex seeming to hate her and secrets popping up everywhere, Gemma’s life is turning into a chaotic mess. Things that shouldn’t be real suddenly seem to exist. And as her world falls apart, figuring out the secrets of her past becomes a matter of life and death.

Les personnages bien que frustrants au début, deviennent rapidement attachants. Le contexte à la fois féérique et magique du roman nous entraine à poursuivre la lecture.

I had heard quite a bit about The Fallen Star Series by Jessica Sorensen in the past few months. I decided it was definitely one that I needed to check out. The story line seemed wonderful, and the cover of the book is just gorgeous and really pulled me in. I just had to know more about the girl with the violet eyes! There will also be a movie coming out in the future!

The Fallen Star Series begins by telling us about Gemma Lucas, a high school student that has a bizarre life to say the least. She lives a very lonely life, not having any friends and being raised by her grandparents Sophia and Marco because her parents died when she was little. Gemma grew up not receiving any love from her grandparents. They acted like they wanted nothing to do with her. The strangest thing of all though is that for most of her existence, Gemma was uncapable of feeling any emotion whatsoever. Once she begins to feel, it is almost too much to handle. It begins with a strange prickle in the back of her neck and then she is absolutely overcome with an emotion. She has also been having horrible nightmares and it seems that the monsters from her nightmares are showing up in real life. Shortly after this starts happening, she meets some new students at school, Alex and Aislin Avery. She doesn't think much of it since no one talks to her at school anyway, but when they are forced to sit with her in astronomy class she is left with no choice other than actually talking to them.

Now not only is Gemma dealing with the sudden capability of emotions, but also this strange electric current she feels when Alex is around. She will soon learn that she can't just ignore it and she will learn many unexpected things about her past and where she came from.

Will Gemma be able to handle all of the new information that is being shoved in her face? Are the monsters that she thinks she is seeing really there or is she just sleep deprived? What is up with Alex and the electric current? You will have to read to find out. And trust me on this one, you will have to read the next one as well because this one leaves you with one heck of a cliffhanger!

I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. It was a little slow starting, but once I got through a few chapters I was hooked. I felt that in some ways I could relate to Gemma and how she was treated in school. Her character really grew on me. I will definitely be reading the next one soon, as I am dying to know what happened. If you have not had a chance to do so, definitely check out this book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Very disappointing 29 octobre 2012
Par Roses~N~Skulls - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was excited for finding a new author when I heard about Jessica Sorensen. The first book I bought was Ember and I thoroughly enjoyed every single part of the book. I enjoyed the plot and the characters. This was the second book I bought but I read it after I read The Secret of Ella & Micha. I was BLOWN AWAY by the story of Ella & Micha. How real they were and the fact the story had nothing to do with paranormal anything (which I prefer) and I still found it hard to put down. Now, with this being said I was amazingly disappointed with The Fallen Star.

The writing was good, though there were mistakes throughout the book. The main characters fell flat for me. I couldn't connect with Gemma at all. (Though there is somewhat of a reason for this I think you should still make the main character likable.)

I liked the idea of the story. That was really about it. The idea and not the way it was carried out.

Gemma is a young girl in high school who just doesn't fit in. She lives with her grandparents Marco and Sophia who took over when her parents died in a car crash. One day at school TWO new students come walking in and of course one of them is the very hot Alex. Gemma starts feeling a buzzing sensation when she's around Alex so it's understandable that she feels some sort of attraction for him. Of course his good looks play a good part in it.

Everyone is mean to Gemma except for Aislin who is 'Alex's sister'. Alex is hateful and Marco and Sophia are hateful. It isn't until Gemma catches a strange conversation taking place between Aislin and Alex and between Alex and Sophia that she starts snooping to find out what is going on and she finds nothing absolutely significant except for a paper full of dates with one date being familiar. It was the date when she started feeling that strange buzz around Alex.

Alex is hot and cold. He actually starts being nice to Gemma after a few days of being a complete jerk.

*SPOILERS*
Gemma is told that she is partially a fallen star. That a fallen star ended up in her mother's pregnant body and was somehow transferred to the fetus (Gemma.) The Keepers had tried to get the fallen star's energy out of Gemma but they couldn't so they stuck her with Marco and Sophia who we find are actually Keepers as are Aislin and Alex. Their job has been to keep Gemma from feeling any emotion so they do so with being detached and downright hateful with her. This is also Alex's reasoning for being the way he is. However, Aislin is actually nice to her which is what I don't get to this puzzle. If they are suppose to refrain from showing her emotion why is Aislin the way she is toward her? Also, I want to add that anger is an emotion so I don't even see the point. Perhaps if Gemma was a walking robot but she isn't. Even in the beginning we find how Gemma feels about the seclusion from her "grandparents".

This all together with vampires, witches, fairies (though it's spelled differently in the book), Foreseerers, and Keepers and you've got yourself the book of the fallen star. I think that is what set me off with the entire book. That there is so much going on without enough explanation.

We get that Death Walkers are out to destroy Gemma so the end of the world is imminent. The whole book is spent with Gemma starting to feel emotion and Death Walkers out to destroy her. What we don't get is any sort of explanation whatsoever. It's as if ideas were shoveled together, tossed in a jar, shook up, and then spit onto the page. What do the witches, vampires, and fairies have to do with the story? I have no idea because that is never answered. They are just there. Aislin is a witch and she practices black magic. She of course comes in handy because she can transport the others to this place and that. It seems completely mute though because each time the Death Walkers end up finding them regardless.

Then the book ends. We're left with the hugest cliff hanger I've ever had the displeasure of witnessing. The ONLY thing that is explained in this book is what Gemma is and why she feels so out of place.

*END SPOILERS*

I thought about giving this book 3 stars but given Amazon's rating system I felt two stars would suffice because I did not like this book. I didn't like the characters or how everything was just jumbled together without anything being explained. In my opinion this would've made for a great book without the whole 'witches, vampires, fairies' scenario. I didn't hate the way this book was written, I happen to enjoy Jessica's way of words but I will have to say this novel did not impress me at all.

I realize that there are books in which more than one mythical creature exists and that's perfectly fine; however, I just don't think it worked for this book because there was no reasoning behind anything that went on in this book. Perhaps all of this is tied together but I doubt I'll be reading the rest to find out unless it comes at a very cheap price.

Jessica has great promise to be an outstanding author and in my eyes she already is that's why it makes me sad that I won't be reading this series. I thought the time on my hands was going to be fulfilled with this series.

With all of this being said I felt the need to write a little more detailed review versus the 1 and 2 star reviews with no real reasoning as to why this book didn't work for them. And, while I won't be reading this series, I can promise you I will be reading the sequel in Death Collects and The Forever of Ella & Micha.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing!! 15 août 2012
Par Jocelyn S. - Publié sur Amazon.com

I saw this book about a week ago and was hooked from the first page. This story is about a girl named Gemma, who seems like an ordinary girl expect for one thing. She doesn't feel any emotions. That is until one day when she felt this prickle on her body. She then starts to feel new emotions. She tries to tell Marco and Sophia, her grandparents, but something seems off with them so she keeps quiet. Soon after the feelings started happening two new students enrolled in her school. Aislin is nice enough, always kind to Gemma. Unlike her brother Alex. Alex who seems to hate her for no reason at all. Alex, the boy who she feels this strong electricity with. As the story goes on Gemma learns that myths and legends, might be real after all. And she slowly finds out who she is, and her importance to the world. This book was fantastic and readers will love this book. It has romance, suspense, and action all in one. I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a great book.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Very bad, and here's why: 29 novembre 2012
Par Cynthia - Publié sur Amazon.com

I need to put it out there that I did give this book a chance, and all that I have to say is that I'm glad it was free. I feel bad giving it such a terrible review, but the book was equally terrible.
The writing was juvenile, the main character is not at all realistic or likable, and overall the story line was weak. If I were a twelve year old girl who has never read, i might really love this book. Sadly, I am a grown woman and sadly this is not my first book to ever read. let's all be honest with each other, real people do not act the way the characters do in this book. The character's interactions with one another are comical, but that is only because of the ridiculousness of them.

Before I go too far, let me give just a few examples from the first few chapters:

The first thing that caught my attention was the amount of times the author said "prickle". In the book, the word is used to describe a sensation that the character kept feeling. Honest to God, the word is used ELEVEN times in the first three chapters. Seriously? Is there no other word for prickle? Is there is no other way to describe the sensation?

The next thing that caught my attention was some of the things the said. things like, "he flung his attention" what does that look like exactly? "I could barely breathe, in fact I couldn't breathe." Well which is it? The character can't be indecisive on something like breathing. "How many times could I be caught staring at him before he called me a stalker?" um...considering the definition of 'stalker'...I think you'll be OK LOOKING at him.

The worst one was this sentence:
"His bright green eyes reminded me of clovers and flourishing springtime leaves. He wore a pair of dark blue jeans and a black hoodie. I guessed him to be tall, but I couldn't say for sure unless I got closer to him." Not only is this a very strange description of someone's eyes, but how in the world can this character perfectly describe his eye color to me but can't tell me if he was tall or not?!?! Am I the only one going crazy here?!

These examples were all taken out of the first three chapters of the book.

I gave this book one star because I literally couldn't continue reading this book anymore. I felt bad that I marked up my book with highlighted mistakes and sarcastic comments. You can give the book a chance and make your own opinions about it.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointed 27 janvier 2013

I had a difficult time making it through the book, only to be really disappointed that I had even tried. The book ended without an ending. There wasn't even a partial ending. My pet peeve with book series is when authors are unable to create multiple stories, but go ahead and create multiple books. I get the multiple sales concept, but I want a full story delivered.

The plot had promise, but the characters in the book weren't engaging or very likable. You had to search hard for something to like. The primary character was just way too slow to figure things out, but I think that was due to the author trying to drag a portion of a story into a full book. If the book was edited down (eliminate repetitive scenes or scenes that don't enhance the story), remove references to paranormal that isn't critical to the story line, and provide the characters with some charm or "character" there is potential to the story line.

The book has the feel that it is written to young teens, but I am not sure how it would capture their interest since it was slow paced with little engaging action.

I won't buy the next book because she may not provide an ending in it either and because I don't really care what happens to these characters.
