When the fate of the world rests upon you…
Allison Delaney wants to spend her senior year healing from the loss of her father, to leave the shadows of his death and her junior year break-down behind. A Labor Day beach party seems like a good place to start…but there’s more danger lurking than anyone could imagine. Death is coming to Earth if the pods of infectious creatures aren’t stopped. But only one human can help…
To live or die is no longer a choice.
Eenoki is a protector of life but must have a sentient host to fight the invasion. A teenage girl would not be the best choice, but out of desperation, Eenoki invades Allison’s mind and body, granting her unnatural abilities and strengths – and helping her escape certain death when the first wave of pods land.
As destruction rains down on Earth’s population, Allison realizes to save everyone, she must make the ultimate choice: Reject her human side and bond with Eenoki to become the Earth’s Priestess – or be killed along with the rest of humanity.
The Fate of the Stars has a good storyline. I like what the story was trying to show or tell me. The book cover is also eye-catching, and I love it. Though even if it does entertain me, I couldn’t deny that the story has some minor flaws that failed to make this book to be part of my favorites.
The story started well, especially when those aliens came to Earth, but I noticed that as I go on, the story started getting boring to me. I think the reason of it was that Allison was, most of the time, being kept or hidden away from different reasons and the actions that started from the beginning began to lessen as more chapters passed by. The only good that happened is it was able to pick its pace again, and that was how I was able to finish this even if it bores me on some point.
The protagonist is a wonderful character. She started as someone who hides inside her shell, but after the descent of those aliens, she started going out of it. Her character developed awesomely. The other characters though are not noticeable because they don’t shine like the protagonist and only a handful of supporting characters made me like them.
Overall, this is an interesting story about aliens invasion. I am looking forward to knowing what will happens next to Allison. I am recommending this book to anyone looking to read some books about aliens. If you also like some pretty unique sci-fi story, I also suggest this one.
