Review: ‘Under the Burning Stars’ by Carrigan Richards

Genre: Young Adult / Paranormal
Length: 336 pages (approx.)

I have awarded this book 5 stars.

This is book 2 in the Elemental Enchanters series. While everything is explained enough for this to work as a standalone book, I would advise that you read book one first.

Summary: After risking everything to be with Peter, her true love, against the wishes of her coven, Ava should be happy. Instead, she is desperate for answers about her mother’s death. Plagued by nightmares, will Ava find the answers that she seeks? What lengths will she go to to find these answers? Will her coven forgive her?

Review: This book is even better than the first in the series. The story picks up pretty much exactly where the last book left off. We see Ava and Peter adjust to being a couple, as well as adjusting to the world that they are apart of. This world is completely new for Peter, but he often seems to have more of a clear head about everything than Ava. We also see how the Aureole adjusts to Peter.

The pace in this book felt quicker to me and there was more going on. I understand that the first book had to set the scene and introduce the characters and concepts, but I found myself enjoying this book more. It was interesting to learn about the new powers and see how each character handled the situations that they were thrown into. I was also interested to learn more about the death of Ava’s mum and get to know the other members of the Aureole. I particularly liked the relationship between Ava and Gabriel and will be interested to see where the author takes it.

★★★★★ – Interesting and fast paced. I will be interested to see where the author takes it. Highly recommended.
