Review: The Burning Star by Jessie Lane
Published Date: May 2012
The Story: She'll have to believe the unbelievable to survive.
The doctors have told Kay that she will die before she reaches her eighteenth birthday. Her mother’s determination to save her life leads them to a move outside of Asheville, NC to a new set of cancer specialists in the hopes to help her. But it’s not what Kay and her Mom find in the doctor’s offices in
Asheville that lead them on the journey to save her before time runs out. It’s what Kay finds in the woods outside of Asheville, and an inhumanly gorgeous guy named Ryan, instead.
Myths and fairy tales come to life before Kay’s eyes, bringing her closer to the ultimate cure if she can stay alive long enough to get there. And if the cancer doesn’t kill her before she finds the cure the secrets her mother has hidden from her may be the beginning of the end.
Can she reach her destiny before tragedy strikes?
My Review: Jessie Lane is actually two sister-in-laws writing together. The story starts out rocky. OK, it was like hearing nails on a chalkboard. BUT, once I got past the switching from third to first person and the switching of characters who were the first person. It was an enjoyable book. Most times when the grammar gets really bad, I cannot finish a book. I wanted to be fair and continue reading it.
Kay went from not having any boys into her to two hot guys fighting over her. She found she was dying, and then finds out a whole lot more. This book is only the first in a series. As I’ve seen with other self-publishers, the remaining books flow very well into each other. I have high hopes for this series!
