by Clemy Warner-Thompson
Abbii can’t remember a time when Shadows weren’t chasing her.
Everywhere she goes they are there, hunting her down.
Since discovering the magical powers in her grasp, she has fought against members of the Forgotten- those pulled into Darkness willingly- and her friends have fallen into danger. Innocent people have lost their lives and the Shadows have spread. Abbii’s friends have fought to remain by her side, but something inside of her has changed.
She is filled with regret and pain of losing her best friend Jake, though she keeps it hidden well- not even Nate can see the damage. Her lack of emotion pushes him to leave and he is thrown into his own spiralling destiny.
Abbii has a choice- to stay by her friends’ sides and fight to protect their home, or leave the realm she knows and search for those that she has lost. Her heart is broken but her friends cannot help her. She has to choose between searching for Jake in the Dark, or whether to return to Nate’s side and keep the Light burning brightly.
The question is, will Light be able to save her from the Darkness within?
Clemy shows the twists and turns Abbii has to make after the conclusion of the Star. This book is an excellent book in its own right. Usually sequels have a hard time matching their predecessor, but the Mirage did not.
You follow Abbii as she leads a ragtag group of students to fight the horde of the Shadows. But in the process she loses herself. Will she find her way to the Light through Nate or fall into the Darkness with Jake.
Read to find out for yourself.
If you liked The Star, I highly recommend you pick this book up as well.
