Title: Faded (Starbound Book 2)
Author: K.L. Bone & Greg Wilkey
Release Date: April 28th 2022
Genre: Dark Fantasy
Stars dim, darkness rises, starlight shines anew.
Heartbroken after the events of Fallen, Rosalind returns to Oxford, unaware of the dangers which stalk her. Cloaked in shadows, secrets hidden in her unrelenting dreams hint at a perilous destiny to come.
Haunted by the same nightmares—and determined to reclaim Rosalind’s heart—Zeke embarks on his own journey to England. But the journey is rampant with danger as those who serve the faded are determined to keep them apart at any cost. And Zeke is not the only one vying for Rosalind’s hand.
Meanwhile, Ursula continues to unfold her sinister plot, one which may see darkness conquer all.
A tale of stars, destiny, and darkness.
Once again, I was wowed by the fascinating storytelling of K.L. Bone and Greg Wilkey. As soon as I started reading, the real world melted away and soon I was in Zeke and Rosalind’s world. The chemistry between the two is scorching and magnetic. One of my favorite characters from the first book is back and we learn a lot more about her and her past. Lots of things are put into motion and when the ending finally came, I was left speechless and heartbroken. These are good things, trust me. Once you read these books, you can join me in my book hangover.
I look forward to and not so patiently for the third book. This is a highly must read and should be added to your TBR today! I give this 5 stars.

Genre: New Adult, Fantasy
Sometimes, even stars must share their light to stop the darkness…
The dream was always the same. Stars falling from the sky, their dying screams echoing across a bleak canvas. Rosalind never imagined the horrors which plagued her sleepless nights were not dreams, but warnings of an uncertain future. Nor that her visions were shared by another.
Across an ocean, Zeke gazes at the sky each evening, helplessly watching as his beloved stars vanish from sight. Most believe these disappearances to be natural, but as the light of the night sky rapidly fades, Zeke knows in his heart, something far worse is at play.
When this unlikely pair meet, romance sparks under moonlit nights. Little do they know their union will awaken a long-dormant power which seeks to consume all within its grasp. Together, they must discover a way to save the stars, before only darkness remains.
Fallen is a refreshing and unique story about the mystique of the stars we see in the sky and two people’s lives destined to change forever.
I have to start with how much I love Kylie Stewart’s voice! I was ecstatic to see she was the narrator. Her voice truly makes any story come alive.
The story is very well written. Great characters who are relatable! I highly enjoyed the plot and the many mysterious things happening around and to our main characters. I went from smiling to gasping to tearing up. Good times!
I highly anticipate the next book!! Well done Miss Bone and Mister Wilkey! 5 stars!
