STARR Z. DAVIES is a Midwesterner at heart and lives in Wisconsin with her husband and kids. From a young age, Starr has been obsessed with superheroes like Batman and Captain America, which inspired her novel, ORDINARY.

In her free time, Starr loves watching Doctor Who and anything with superheroes, reading books (duh!), writing about her favorite fantasy stories (Song of Ice and Fire, Mist

When I get stuck, I just force myself through the next chapter. Sometimes the chapter turns out great. Sometimes I end up cutting it out. But writer's block can be crippling if you don't push past it. (less)

I was really excited about the second book in this series! Rhys was by far my favorite character (though not a POV character). I couldn't wait to see what secrets lay in store and how the relationship between Sierra and Rhys moved along.

A good book! I read through it really quick. I was a little disappointed with how Ronan was dealt with, and how easy it seemed for Kian, but maybe that was just me. I like how the characters got their ending (though my heart broke for poor Dex).

Following the tale of these four teens has been entertaining. Book two was a fantastic page-turner. I found this one much darker than the second. I will admit that I knocked it down a star because I didn't care much about Kian/Nova's story. I read th ...more

This book was so much better than the first one! The first book felt like it was all about character development and the plot was a bit lacking (and often predictable). This book picks up right where the first book left off -- with Nova in the room a ...more
