Book Review: Burn Bright
Book 2 in the Dark Star series
AUTHOR: Bethany Frennette
PUBLISHED: February 25th
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
PREMISE: Audrey deals with new powers, a new threat in her city, and trying to navigate friends, boyfriend, and a superhero mother.
MY REVIEW: I will forever be puzzled about why Dark Star isn't more popular then it is. Because it really should be more buzzed about. It's got all the things that usually inhabit popular YA titles: likable main character, fun friends, hot guy (who in this case doesn't act like a jerk, yay), fast-paced plot, fun set up. Yet...no one ever talks about it. Honestly, YA world, what gives?
This one was just as enjoyable as the first one. There's plot twists galore, action, and character growth. It does all the things sequels should do while managing to be entertaining as hell.
If this one slipped by your radar, I beg you to please give it a chance. Especially if you're into urban fantasy/superheroes.
WHO SHOULD READ: fans of Dark Star, Mortal Instruments fans, comic book fans
MY RATING: Four and a half out of Five superheroes kicking butt
