This is the story of a girl finding out about who and what she really is and along the way there are things "Death Walkers" That do go bump in the night and can kill you. Death by Freeze. The characters we get introduced to all play major roles in the story. There are some minor ones but they still matter and push the story forward. Gemma doesn't understand why she hasn't been able to feel anything for most of her life, but now that she is feeling she knows exactly what she's been missing out on.
She keeps having the recurring dreams of the strange man with the scar on his face ordering her monsters to slay her, barely escaping the dream when she wakes, only to find that the dream isn't a dream at all but the players and monsters are in fact real. She feels connected to the stars and can never figure out why until Alex and his sister Aislin come along. Although Alex is part of a secret order of so called protectors against her monsters he hides from her the worst of all secrets. Yet Gemma is still pulled by their connection the two share, but neither understand.
Alex being the guy that he is plays on the connection trying to earn her trust. Is he friend or is he foe? Laylen once part of the same secret society was turned to a vampire and offers some light into her past history Who she was who her mother was and perhaps all is not what it seems to be. Who exactly can Gemma trust to help her not only fight her demons but to rescue a woman she sees in visions that was pulled into a lake and taken to a prison beneath the earth?
There are so many twists and turns in the story and the ending will leave you wanting more. Sorensen wrote a dark and intriguing book. I went looking for the publisher to request a review copy of the next book when it does come out and found that this was self published by the author herself.
Its very well written. Nothing will keep you from turning the page and embarking on the Journey that Gemma goes on. I recommend this book hands down! View all 10 comments. Apr 11, Amanda rated it really liked it. At first I was having a hard time getting into the story, but once I did I was hooked! Gemma's life is far from normal.
She has no friends, no close family, and lacks any kind of emotion.
She passes her time basically being a zombie until one day she feels a prickle. A prickle of emotion While trying to decipher her new found emotions she discovers that she and everyone around her are not who they seem. Thrust into a world of Keepers, Forseers, and all things that go bump in the night-Gemma must come to terms with her new life and everyone in it before it's too late!!
This book leaves off with a HUGE cliffhanger that makes my mouth water with anticipation for the next book!!! View all 4 comments.

We can see that Gemma is troubled. Gemma can be pretty strong willed at times, as well as impulsive.
But then, there are times we can see the mysteries surrounding her scare her. She will soon find out a shocking revelation about her life. This is a very creative story, love the fantasy and mysteries around it. The world that Jessica has created along with the characters and the magicks she places into this world are very intriguing. The plot itself has lots of potential as well. The idea of a fallen star is not unique to this story, but the twist and turn she has given it is very original. Also, having the character suddenly be able to feel emotions is an interesting idea. There is a very complex and interesting idea of the soul and emotions tied together, and that being the very essence of a human being is something that she could explore.
There is even a spin off series that is also amazing, with same characters, with a whole new adventure The best part is how within a few pages you are sucked into the story! It hooks you from the first chapter. I am hooked on the series, and impatiently waiting for the 2nd in the spin off. The Lost Soul is out, and I read it, now waiting for book 2.

Downloaded for free from Amazon. Gemma was an okay character, although she could have done with improving her eavesdropping skills as she kept getting caught! She also seemed to ramble a bit. The storyline in this reminded me a bit of a couple of other books, and also of a season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, view spoiler [ where her sister Dawn is actually a big ball of energy which is supposed to be used to close a portal, as tha Downloaded for free from Amazon.
The storyline in this reminded me a bit of a couple of other books, and also of a season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, view spoiler [ where her sister Dawn is actually a big ball of energy which is supposed to be used to close a portal, as that was pretty much the story in this book too! The ending to this was basically just a big cliff-hanger.
Aug 12, Beverly rated it it was amazing. I loved this story! I was "in" from that very sentence. What struck me first is the fantastically visual language. The characters are mysteriously created with vague descriptions that are intriguing and led me to turn the pages and read on to learn more. By chapter six I was still in the grip of Gemma's emotions and could feel my heart pounding as I continued to read.

The story is wonderfully written. The story finished as strong as it started. The characters and the plot developed before my eyes! I found myself unwilling to put the book down, always needing to read just one more page; one more chapter. The story tells of secrets both kept and told, friendship, duty, and betrayal. I love the characters, they drive the story. This is a new theme; the fallen star with the power to save or condemn the world.
There are mysteries left unsolved and the story finishes in a heart wrenching cliffhanger. Well worth the read!!!! View 1 comment. Found the "heroine" a bit hard to relate to or stomach as she was pretty childish, bratty and inconsiderate, not to mention cowardly. I really did feel like slapping her quite a few times and telling her to grow the heck up.
Aside from the very flawed main character and the equally irritating and elusive love interest, the story was interesting enough to keep me reading it till the end.
