A Dark and Hollow Star

We rated this book:


Since the beginning of time, faeries and other mystical beings have peacefully lived among humans. This all changes the day strange murders begin in the city of Toronto. Four teens, each with ties to the magical world, must combine their knowledge and talents to find the murderer. Nausicaä: a temperamental ex-Fury, Arlo: a shy half-fae girl who is not what she seems, Vehan: a fae prince desperate to earn his mother’s approval, and Aurelian: Vehan’s bodyguard, with a secret of his own, choose to form an alliance driven by their urges to find justice for the dead. But the truth may be darker than any of them anticipated, and it may just unveil the beginnings of a war. Will Aurelian, Nausicaä, Vehan, and Arlo find the killer and stop the brewing tide of destruction? Or will they fail and doom both human and faerie worlds to destruction?

I loved this book! The cast of characters was awesome, inclusive, and original. The plot was wonderfully imaginative and unique, with perfect combinations of mystery and romance. I enjoyed the sharp twists and turns I did not see coming. I thoroughly look forward to the sequel!
