The second novella in The Starlight Chronicles Series, Starfall, is officially out today!
To celebrate, I’m sharing one more teaser with you here on the blog! Don’t forget to pick up your copy once you’re done reading!
After my meeting with Andrew on my way back to the warehouse, I passed the Community Center. There were only two cars in the parking lot, but to my surprise, I spotted people coming out of the hall.
I recognized the Starlight Princess immediately. She was with her sister and her mother. The sister was carrying an
award shaped like piano keys spiraling upwards, and the mother held a folder.
I tensed at the sight of the princess, glaring—even though they hadn’t spotted me lurking at the edge of the carpark, just shy of a streetlight.
“You did so well, Kyra!” Their mother praised, beaming at her. The Starlight Princess’ sister—Kyra—smiled back happily, before turning her head to the sky and letting out a satisfied breath.
Her eyes widened as she spotted something.
“Look!” She cried, pointing up. “There’s a shooting star!”
Fear sliced through me, and my gaze snapped to the sky.
There was, in fact, a shooting star—but it was far away. Too far to be the celestial lantern falling. I breathed a sigh of relief.
“Quick, Luce, make a wish!” Kyra insisted, tugging her sister’s arm. She looked up carefully, as is hesitant, but then
shut her eyes.
A moment passed, and her eyes opened once more.
“What did you wish for?” Kyra pressed insistently. I watched her thoughtful gaze and her sad smile as she turned
back to Kyra.
“I wished for Valarie’s happiness,” she replied, almost too softly for me to hear from where I was standing.
A pang shot through my body, and the tension in my shoulders eased. She’d been selfless…she had wished for Adrina’s wellbeing…
I realized in that moment that the Starlight Princess must have truly cared for Adrina. How could I despise someone who genuinely cared for the person I cared for most? How could I think such bad things…when in reality, I didn’t even know this girl?
She’s a reincarnation too, I thought. She wasn’t Princess Annaliese. She was somebody else…somebody new, different even.
I watched the three of them climb into their car and drive away, and I was left there torn between my own feelings and my rational thoughts…and a new curiosity for who the Starlight Princess truly was.
Thousands of centuries have passed since Adrina’s death, and Julian–now Jason–has dedicated himself to redemption in her honour.
When he discovers Adrina and the Starlight Princess have reincarnated, he vows to keep them undiscovered by staying far away. That is, until he is forced to gain the trust of the angels, leaving him no choice but to risk everything and finally face his haunted past.
Devian never saw a future for himself, doing everything he could to ensure his sister had one instead. But when he falls into a Shadeow vow with his sworn enemy, he finds himself tangled up with the one girl he could never have–and desiring a new life he never allowed himself to dream of.
Together, everything will fall apart–and yet, fall into place, aligning the stars for a new era of magic, rulership, and romance to unfold…
