What I Loved:

This book was filled with exciting battles and struggles! It was definitely my favorite in the series and an excellent end to the family’s story!

How I Felt:

Our main character Ella is turning 15! Her birthday celebration involves continuing the family’s journey to find a cure for Ella’s cancer. This family is so amazing. The lengths that they go to to save young Ella are so moving. This final book in the series really speaks to the choices we all have to make in life. Will we be compassionate or unloving? Will we choose to embrace or exclude? Ella and her entire family battle these questions as they navigate the final steps of their journey!

What I Loved:

I loved that this book did not let me down! I felt like it did a great job of staying true to the story, but introducing even crazier situations and exciting plots to keep me interested!

How I Felt:

Below the Moon picks up right where we ended Above the Stars. While it is the second book in the series, it could be read as a stand-alone, but I think the reader would take longer to understand the story and the world. I would recommend reading the first book in this series before reading Below the Moon.

What I Loved:

The utter craziness of this story was so intriguing! I think that sometimes, it’s just so fun to dive into a book that takes you into the oddest moments and quirkiest characters, and that’s exactly what I got with this story!

How I Felt:

Above the Star was seriously one of the wildest, craziest books I have read in a while. The world was very different, and it takes some getting used to, but I think if there are readers that are interested in immersing themselves in a totally new and different place, this would be a great series for them! I also liked that there is a glossary in the back of the book to help you figure out what’s happening. I thought it was a needed, and nice, addition!
