YA Bound Blog Tour, Guest Post, & Giveaway: The Star Catcher (Stephanie Keyes)

The Star Catcher (The Star Child #3) by Stephanie Keyes
Paperback, 436 pages
Release Date: November 10th 2013 | Publisher: Inkspell Publishing


Magick and destiny intertwine as he fights to save his kingdom and the goddess he loves.

Her kiss…the feel of her skin…the beat of her heart…For seventeen-year-old Kellen St. James, each memory is marred by a single sentence on a lone strip of paper.

Cali has been taken…
Armed with an amulet that channels the ultimate power of Faerie, Kellen searches for his love. However, control of the amulet’s energy comes with a price, and Kellen soon learns that Cali’s captor has plans for the stone. With the threat of the Star Catcher’s evil looming above Kellen and his kingdom, he’ll have to free the Heart of Faerie and break the curse the binds the Children of Danu to the darkness. But before that, he has to find his real father, the king. No pressure, right?
Kellen and Cali will battle bewitched armies and unknown foes as they fight to stay together. Will Kellen embrace his immortal destiny? Or will his world, and the man he is fated to become, be destroyed by The Star Catcher?

"One of the best endings in a trilogy I have seen in a while. Fans will not be disappointed!"-Jackie Jackson, The Book Maven

Featured Playlist Song

I had a huge playlist for The Star Catcher. One of my favorite songs was Kites by the band, Iko. In The Star Catcher, there's a section where Cali is lost on a star, searching for a way out and KItes served as an excellent backdrop. Her powers aren't working the way they should and she's worried for Kellen.
My powers opened the door for me, but had they disclosed its location? No. Air, Fire, Earth, Water. The elements born unto me. Show me the door, I thought to myself once again. Nothing happened. I started searching for the way out again, my memories assaulting me as I walked.
Marry me. Kellen’s words echoed like a gentle torture device in my mind as I sprinted along the grassy plains of the star on which Ainmire held me captive. Why did Kellen have to go and get separated from me?
The fool and his sense of duty! He should have run the other way and found his way back to me. Then we could be together. I slowed to a halt, resting my elbows on my knees.
He didn’t run because that’s not who he was. That was not the man I loved.
