About the Book:
Shae and her friends are still a little confused about what is going on, but that changes when they meet the alien guest and enter a dream state. With the aid of one of the aliens, they make a final confrontation with the entity that is the cause of all their issues and history!
This is the last book of the Stargazer series. As the book series comes to a close, we continue to learn about Shae’s background and why she is the way she is and how she got there. We also discover why Shae, Kenny, and their group were chosen in the beginning at such a young age.
As the story winds down, it begins to tie up loose ends as it also finishes the story. The alien guest’s explain why they are there and what their purpose is. In hopes of changing their own fate, they share that they must help the fate of earth as well, and save humanity in the process.
In one of the previous book’s Kenny is found only to disappear again, and in this final chapter they say why. I do feel for Shae, as she spent so much of the story trying to find her brother, and when she does, she learns that she will finally lose him for good in the end.
I know that things like this make good story telling, but it doesn’t make for any less of a heartache for Shae. In reading the story I am for Shae, and as a reader, feeling for the main character, and watching her triumph and have heartache at the same time is good and bad, but like I said. Makes for good storytelling.
The cover art continues the same style as the previous, having been consistent throughout, I have enjoyed the different variants that each chapter brings. Like the previous books, seeing part of the story laid out on the front cover add’s intrigue to the story itself.
The interior art, like the cover, has done great with the colors and being consistent throughout the entire series. The emotion that is displayed on the characters continues to add depth, and draw the reader into the story, making the reader feel for the characters as they have evolved.
This story started out with a group of kids who were not sure that they were even abducted in the first place, and ended with the now grown adults ending up saving the world. The development of the characters, as well as the back story that went into them, to make them come across as having issues is very well done.
I enjoyed the series and highly recommend the series to anyone who is interested in details of visitation from species not of our earth!
