Hello everyone !
A few months ago, I reviewed a novel by Amber Skye Forbes and today it's already the one year publication anniversary ! I was asked to participate to the celebration of this anniversary and it is with a great pleasure that I said yes ! I'm glad to talk about this talented writer and her first published story. When Stars Die, because of a beautiful and very unique writing and universe, stayed in my mind and amazed me. It's one of these books I want everyone to read and know about. If the gorgeous cover and the blurb below didn't convince you, you should check my review ! I have also an interview with Amelia, the main character in When Stars Die.
Here is what you need to know about one of my favorite YA and paranormal book series. I can't wait to read the second book in The Stars Trilogy ! You can buy When Stars Die here on Amazon and it's also available in Barnes & Noble. And you really should visit Amber's blog.
This very special occasion gives me the pleasure to host a giveaway ! Don't forget to enter !

When Stars Die,
The Stars Trilogy #1
“Yet, even when stars die, they leave a lasting impact through their light, their diamond brilliance as they scatter their material to form new stars. When people die, they leave the same impact with the footprints they leave on people's hearts. Even the ones who feel insignificant go out, leaving behind dust that can nourish the world anew."
Amelia Gareth's brother is a witch and the only way to save her family from the taint in his blood is to become a professed nun at Cathedral Reims in the snowy city of Malva. However, in order to become professed, she must endure trials that all nuns must face.
Surviving these trials is not easy, especially for Amelia, who is being stalked by shadowy beings only she can see. They're searching for people they can physically touch, because only those they can touch can see them. Amelia soon learns why she is being stalked when she accidentally harms her best friend with fire during the third trial. Fire is a witch's signature. The shadows are after witches.
Now Amelia must decide what to do: should she continue on her path to profession knowing there is no redemption, or should she give up on her dream and turn away from Cathedral Reims in order to stop the shadows who plan to destroy everything she loves?
