Blog Tour: The Star Catcher by Stephanie Keyes (Review)

Welcome to my stop on the The Star Catcher blog tour hosted by Royal Street Publicity.

I've been given the privilege to be a part of the blog tour! I'm grateful for the author and Royal Street Publicist for getting me to read and review the books.

I'll be sharing my thoughts and honest opinions on Star Catcher for now. As for the two books, I'll be on it soon! Enter the giveaway below! Enjoy!

The Star Catcher by Stephanie Keyes
Release Date: Novermber 10th, 2013 | Pages: 375 | Publisher: Inkspell Publishing

Magick and destiny intertwine as he fights to save his kingdom and the goddess he loves.

Her kiss…the feel of her skin…the beat of her heart…For seventeen-year-old Kellen St. James, each memory is marred by a single sentence on a lone strip of paper.
Cali has been taken…

Armed with an amulet that channels the ultimate power of Faerie, Kellen searches for his love. However, control of the amulet’s energy comes with a price, and Kellen soon learns that Cali’s captor has plans for the stone. With the threat of the Star Catcher’s evil looming above Kellen and his kingdom, he’ll have to free the Heart of Faerie and break the curse the binds the Children of Danu to the darkness. But before that, he has to find his real father, the king. No pressure, right?

Kellen and Cali will battle bewitched armies and unknown foes as they fight to stay together. Will Kellen embrace his immortal destiny? Or will his world, and the man he is fated to become, be destroyed by The Star Catcher?

The Star Catcher by Stephanie Keyes


The characters embark on a journey any mortal would have thought not possible. It has been magical and adventurous for Kellen and for me too as a reader of the book. He has carried the prophecy on his shoulders. He is essential as he is the only one who could put an end to the evil that lurks in his life and everyone he loves. I've been given the chance to have seen the works of each of the characters - Cali, Kellen and Gabe. I'm proud of these characters because they demonstrated themselves well and fought bravely for what is right. Kellen did not complain, he just set his heart on helping create peace in the world where it deserves to be and where Cali is, he will be there for her.

For huge fans of fantasy, romance and fairly good context, this is made for you! You have to have the book for your next read! I felt that I have been taken away from my own miserable life when I chose to read the book. Despite its flaws like the problem that goes like a cycle. It keeps circling back to the main one from the beginning. I don't understand those parts. That's probably one of the reasons why I had some difficulty with the book. I took longer time to finish it. I particularly had a pleasant time stuck with it at that point in time, but other times I didn't.

The tone of how the characters developed and sounded is kind of mature, in my opinion. The writing is acceptable and decent which I like. It serves an appealing plot to readers. It feels different from the other fantasy books I've read before. I can only assure you that it will definitely be worth your time! The ending...well, it'll put a smile on your face. At first, I thought it has Greek mythology in it, judging from the book cover but it is more than that. It's called astonishing.


(Actual) Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Keyes is the author of the YA Fantasy series, The Star Child, which currently includes The Star Child, After Faerie, The Fallen Stars, and The Star Catcher, all from by Inkspell Publishing.
