Book Review: Wandering Stars
Today's review is on Wandering Stars by Marlon Pierre-Antoine
Wandering Stars is a unique story in and of itself, at least for me. I haven't seen many books out there where the main character falls in love with the Devil himself. Though I felt that the plot was decent, I did find myself wondering why Leo was even there. All of the other characters seemed to have a firm place in the story, but Leo?
Alice is a 17 year old girl, living a "normal" if not hum-drum life. She lives in a small apartment with her mother and works at the local value-mart type store along with her best friend Evelyn and Leo. Most of what Alice does is work, sleep, and hang out with Evelyn, but all of that changes on the evening of the storm.
Though there were warnings to stay inside because of the approaching storm, Alice's Great Dane Indie still needed to be taken out. Grabbing his leash, Alice and Indie head out to the beach where she sees two men under the pier. As she goes closer, she can just make out the sounds of their voices but not the actual words, but she does suffer from terrible pain at hearing them, eventually making her pass out. Little did she know that one of those men was Lucifer. The King of Darkness.
Now she can't seem to get the dark haired Lucifer out of her mind. She dreams of him nightly. When she finally does see him she is drawn to him like no other. Eventually Lucifer confesses who he is and the two fall in love, but their love could destroy all of Heaven.
Wandering Stars was a good book with a good story line; however, nothing really stood out for me. Evelyn was a good supporting character, but again Leo didn't really do much, though he should have. Once you read the book you will understand what I mean.
I give props for Originality, I have to take away for grammatical and spelling mistakes.
3.5 of 5 stars
