The Interview[BE]: Today I'm welcoming back YA Paranormal Romance Author, Stephanie Keyes. Stephanie is the author of The Star Child series, which includes The Star Child and The Fallen Stars. Stephanie, you've just released your second book. How does that feel?
[SK]: It's a very special time for me. I really enjoyed writing The Star Child, but I wrote the original book six years ago. The Fallen Stars was written over a twelve-week period last summer, so it's fresher for me.
[BE]: What do you like the most about the second book?
[SK]: The first book was really about developing the character of Kellen St. James. That continues in this book, however, Calienta, his love interest, really needed to move to the next level. I enjoyed getting to write from her perspective.
[BE]: Any break out characters?
[SK]: Kellen's best friend, Gabriel Stewart. He had a bit part in book one and I didn't know if he would reappear when I initially wrote him. Well, he's taken on a very large role in the book. I just love him to pieces!
[BE]: Thanks Stephanie! This is book two. Will there be a book three?
[SK]: I just sent book three off to my editor last week. Fingers crossed that they like it!
[BE]: Cool. Now, let's take a look at the book we're featuring today, The Fallen Stars.
The Fallen Stars (The Star Child #2)
Paperback, 530 pages| Expected publication: April 12th 2013 by Inkspell Publishing
When all is lost, he will have to make the ultimate decision.
Kellen St. James was just your average seventeen-year-old prodigy, until he eighty-sixed the Lord of Faerie and proposed to the Celtic Goddess, Calienta. But then everything in Kellen’s life gets turned upside-down when he and Cali end up on the run from a seriously irritated group of faeries. The worst part? They have zero idea why they’re being hunted.
Suddenly, Kellen is stuck in the middle of another prophecy that foresees him turning away from Calienta and embracing the dark. He’ll be forced to take sides in a struggle to claim his birthright, while discovering secrets about his father’s past. Meanwhile, his passion for Cali grows stronger, even as the prophecy threatens to tear them apart.
In the end, will Kellen and Cali survive the fates? When the ultimate power is within reach, which side will he choose?
