The Star and the Strange Moon

We rated this book:


No one knows the name Gemma Turnner, even though her disappearance is one of the greatest mysteries in the film world. One moment she was there, the next she was gone. The only thing strangers is how no one wants to talk about her or the movie she was in the middle of filming.

Christopher Kent has been haunted by Gemma since he was a boy, her photo being the thing that set his mother into a spiral. He’s on the search for the truth and risks losing himself along the way.

A fantasy mystery on the verge of horror, The Star and the Strange Moon had a fantastic start, a fantastic middle, and a disappointing end. Not to say it was horrible, it just wasn’t what I was expecting and was disappointed with the romance between Gemma and Christopher. He’s been obsessed with her for years; he’s her rescuer, yet it felt forced and boring.

I didn’t particularly like Christopher, he had a one track mind and can’t see the people around him. Gemma was better; a strong, stubborn, heroine that didn’t need rescuing. Of course, until a handsome man shows up.

I did enjoy this book, though, it’s fast paced and I finished it in a few sittings. There’s heavy language scattered throughout.
