Posted on October 23, 2013




When Stars Die(October 1, 2013−Grovetown, GA) Amber Skye Forbes is a talented, up-and-coming author whose new paranormal romance for young adults, WHEN STARS DIE (AEC Stellar Publishing Inc., October 22, 2013) isan insightful examination of human suffering and the first installment of The Stars Trilogy.

Shadowy figures haunt Amelia’s days in Cathedral Reims, and they are waiting for her to join them. Redemption isn’t possible for a witch, but she’s committed her life to trying, as long as she can still protect her younger brother, Nathaniel.What she doesn’t realize is that Nathaniel’s been seeing the figures too, and that both of them are about to be submerged into a much different – and more dangerous – world than they ever knew existed. They unite with the dangerously attractive priest, Oliver Cromwell, in hopes that he’ll be able to protect them.

Here’s what others are saying about it:

SORIN SUCIU, author of the contemporary fantasy, The Scriptlings:

“Amber’s writing is dark, marked by suffering and a deep understanding of what makes us tick, not to mention tock. Her devastating first-person narrative and present tense combo makes it hard not to be drawn into the story.While “When Stars Die” is categorized under Romance, there is so much more to it than that. Indeed, I would even argue that romance is not even the main dish, but rather the subtle spice that takes the whole plate up a notch.”

CL MANNARINO, avid reader of Young Adult Romance:

“This is a fascinating and thoughtfully plotted debut, and well-written in the technical sense. As my first Christian book, or any book with heavy overtones of spirituality or religiousness, When Stars Die has certainly been an entertaining read.”
