Last Star Burning

Series: Last Star Burning #1
Publication: October 10th, 2017

Sev is branded with the mark of a criminal—a star burned into her hand. That’s the penalty for being the daughter of the woman who betrayed their entire nation.

Now her mother’s body is displayed above Traitor’s Arch, kept in a paralyzed half sleep by the same plague that destroyed the rest of the world. And as further punishment, Sev is forced to do hard labor to prove that she’s more valuable alive than dead.

When the government blames Sev for a horrific bombing, she must escape the city or face the chopping block. Unimaginable dangers lurk outside the city walls, and Sev’s only hope of survival lies with the most unlikely person—Howl, the chairman’s son. Though he promises to lead her to safety, Howl has secrets, and Sev can’t help but wonder if he knows more about her past—and her mother’s crimes—than he lets on.

But in a hostile world, trust is a luxury. Even when Sev’s life and the lives of everyone she loves may hang in the balance.


You know how sometimes you read a book and so many THINGS happen that you want to talk about but doing so would result in all sorts of spoilers?


Yeah, that's Last Star Burning. 

I will say that the cover is a bit misleading, in my opinion. It's a pretty cover, don't get me wrong. I have no qualms with it. But it does scream FANTASY, does it not? And to be fair, the book seems to be classified as such.

But this one is for all the dystopian lovers out there.

I always find it easier to talk about things I didn't like, and when it comes to Last Burning Star, there isn't anything I didn't like. World-building, character development, action, twists...it's all there, and it's fantastic.

So, here I am, writing a review that isn't really a review because I don't know what else to say except......READ THIS BOOK.

Cover: 4 | Characters: 5 | Plot: 5 | Pace: 5 | Creativity: 5
