So I’m a little late on this review, but July’s CSFFBT book was Starlighter, by Bryan Davis. The book follows the stories of a few young heroes in a generation denied the truths of their pasts. Our heroes face death head on as they dive head long at unknown dangers and foes. Surrounded by greedy power seekers, the heroes of this generation will not allow the sins of the past to continue into the future.
Seeking truth can often reveal unexpected friends and foes alike, and can reveal truths about one’s self that could never have been known by just accepting what we’re told. Starlighter is a brutal journey, but one that is worth the efforts.
The only major complaint I can remember having about the book is the sawcut ending. It makes you wonder if someone simply tore the last pages out of the book. Starlighter is a good book, but it does not stand on its own in my opinion. I don’t know what others think, but expectation for the next book in a series is far greater for me when the previous book ends really well. Hopefully we’ll see an actual ending to the next book, because the 1st book deserved a good one.
