Eighteen-year-old servant girl Tambrynn is haunted by more than her unusual silver hair and the star-shaped pupils in her eyes. Her uncontrollable ability to call objects leads the wolves who savagely murdered her mother right to her door.

 
When she’s fired and outcast during a snowstorm, her carriage wrecks and she’s forced to find refuge in an abandoned cottage. There, her life is upended when the magpie who’s stalked her for ten years transforms into a man, Lucas. He’s her Watcher and they’re from a different kingdom. His job is to keep her safe from her father, an evil mage, who wants to steal her abilities, turn her into one of his undead beasts, and become immortal himself.
 
Can they make it to the magical passageway and get to their home kingdom in time for Tambrynn to thwart her father’s malicious plans? Or will Tambrynn’s unique magic doom them all?

My thoughts on The Girl with Stars in her eyes

I do love a good YA Fantasy novel, so I was excited to read this one (a clean Christian fantasy!) from an author I had not previously heard of. With every fantasy book there is a bit of disorientation in the beginning as we wondering into the world the author has created. This one was quite easy to read and understand.  

I LOVED Dawn Ford’s characters. I mean they were so very well executed, with great arcs, compelling storylines, and a fantastic moral. After reading the first chapter I was hastily held captivated by Tambrynn and her plight.  

A very interesting story overall, and a series I will have on my reading list as it comes out! 

*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback.
