After reading this novella, I am definitely on Team Zane!
This was such a sweet, but sad novella. We get full insight on Zane & Ari's relationship before the memory wipe and the move to planet Novo. I loved their relationship! Like I said, it's sweet, but you can also tell that they really love each other and plan to be together in the future. This is what makes the novella so sad! You know that Ari is going to be moving to planet Novo, get her memory wiped, and end up with another man!

A great short story that really helped fill in some of the gaps in Zane and Ari's history.

Yesterday and today I read the short story prequels from both male members of the True Calling love triangle. From book one of the series, True Calling, I have been team Cal all the way. So I was kind of stunned that in the short stories, I prefer Zane over Cal. For my review I decided to do something different. I will compare and contrast Zane's and Cal's books and give you an insight as to why my loyalties switched.

Maturity level: Cal in his book seemed quite immature. He claims he has changed

This novella is exactly what I hoped for and more. I always felt like we missed the part of the story about Zane and Ari their past together and with this novella we finally have that piece of the story as well. It's a very emotional read and bittersweet, as if you have read True Calling you know what happens next. And it was so heartbreaking to see them so happy and know they where going to be separated.

This novella focusses more on the romanti

I knew it. I knew I would have my heart torn out. I knew I would need a roll of paper towels, even for this short read. Any time the male POV is the sole voice, the insight into the male heart and mind can be a journey through hell and beyond and Zane’s tale of his relationship with Ari on Earth, is one heartbreaking journey. Talk about shedding light on a relationship forced to end before it finished blooming, how unfair life and circumstance can be, whoa, Siobhan Davis is in rare form for this ...more

I received an eARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.

Initial thoughts:



Light of a Thousand Stars Light of a Thousand Stars by Siobhan Davis is a short novella for the True Calling series, told from Zane's POV and set prior to the Skyee family leaving for Novo. First of all bravo Siobhan Davis for making me squall like a baby in this book AND for giving us a back story to Novo all in under 100 pa

This is a short story in the True Calling series told from Zane’s perspective. This is dubbed 2.5, but it is set before True Calling takes place, just before Ariana and her family move to Novo. Those who have read True Calling or Beyond Reach will already have some idea of Zane and Ariana’s backstory and a pretty solid handle on how much he loves her, but Light of a Thousand Stars really brings it home.

I must say that through it all, I was crying inside, especially knowing what’s in store for th

Although this short novella length story has just been released, it really takes place before ‘True Calling’. However I’m glad I read that, and the second in the series ‘Beyond Reach’ first. It just felt right to have some of the gaps filled in at this stage.

This series has a love triangle with a new slant at its heart, and having fluctuated between Cal and Zane, with the gut feeling that Ari belongs with Cal, I now find myself leaning in the direction of Zane. It is very difficult not to like h

I loved getting a glimpse into Zane and Ari before their separation. I'm very curious about Gil and Emily, my thoughts keep leading me towards a revelation about them, and although I am not totally in love with what my mind is coming up with, I think it will be an interesting read, but I suppose I'll have to wait for the next book to see how the story evolves. Also, I think Zane needs to change his definition for what he thinks a "nice" girl is because I think his interpretation is lacking, and ...more

This installment is told from Zane's POV. I loved getting to hear about his love story & his beginning with Ari! It was one of the pieces of the puzzle I've been aching for. Because, we've seen how devoted he is to Ari but want to know more about the "why". We get to see Zane in his element & if you loved Zane before, you will find your love for him only grows stronger{he is everything we've come to expect & way more}. This book definitely delivers and also gives you some more insigh ...more

Loves this novella. A very quick read from Zane's prospective. Zane is an all round nice guy. But I'm still team Cal. This book sheds some light on what will happen in book 3 regarding book 2s cliffhanger ending. Something Ari recalled once she got her memory back something that once nearly destroyed her.


Due to the Ari's announcement near the end of book 2, I hope she picks Cal. *though authors do enjoy throwing curve balls.

I can understand why Zane blew up when he found out Ari and Cal had slep

I love Zane. I am team Zane from book 1 and the author seemed to have noticed that as well. So when I signed up for the blog tour of book 3 Destiny Rising, she graciously provided me this book as well as she knew I love Zane. And I can't thank her enough for this. I loved this book so much and it crushed me to see Zane crumple down when Ariana was taken to planet Nov

I am excited every single time I get to read anything new from Siobhan Davis because I know it will be an amazing read and this novella was no different. Similar in style to Love struck we see an snippet of what life was like before Novo for Zane and Ari.

Normally this cover would not be my thing at all however this is exactly what Zane and Ari look like! It sums up their relationship in one perfect picture and the stars over the cover add the mystery. I love all of the other covers and this one

I read the novella after reading Beyond Reach and Lovestruck. Zane helped the guilt inside me arose for swooning over Cal in Lovestruck. I guess this is what Ari felt everytime she sees the hurt and pain in Zane’s eyes in Beyond Reach. :( (Sorry Zane!) But I won’t also deny the f

Light Of A Thousand Stars is a gripping and heart wrenching novella told from Zane’s POV, which takes place long before the Earth disaster and the imminent departure of Ariana.

Always and Forever

We get a closer look as to how their lives used to be and it shows us just how deep his love for Ariana is, and just how far he is willing to go to get her back in his life after she and her family i

Zane has been in love with Ariana for years, she is his world and he would do anything for her. They have been together for ten months now and Zane couldn't be happier, he finally has the girl of his dreams, but life always throws something at you, right? Of course, and on Zane and Ariana's case; Life has thrown more than one obstacle at them. Something bad happened, something that both of them have had to kept a secret from everyone and now Ariana is falling apart. Zane is trying is best to pre ...more

This was a novella was a nice addition to the series. I liked that it gave us a glimpse into Ari and Zane's relationship when they both still lived on Earth, but didn't actually give away what Ari and Zane had done. (The big cliffhanger in Beyond Reach, when Ari suddenly remembers.) I felt like reading this made me truly realize how much Zane lost, when Ari didn't remember him, and as she appears to be choosing Cal right now.

I'll be really interested to see how Siobhan finishes the story in the

This was a short story looking into the past before the first novel, True Calling, where everyone is still on Earth and you get a background about the relationship with Zane and Ari. Honestly, this was the first time I actually felt the realness between Ari and ANYONE! With Cal it always seemed contrived because of the competition, even after reading his novella it just didn't feel real; but reading this story about Ari and Zane felt real.

The only negative thing I would have to say is that SOMET

I will start by saying I love the series so far and can't get enough so I was excited to have another mini-fix. This novella is from Zane's point of view and entirely based on earth before any move to Novo. It really helped me to understand why he loves Ariana so much, despite the fact she can't remember their relationship at all. What girl wouldn't give their right arm to have someone as devoted and wonderful as Zane??

As a book in its own right it is a great read and there is enough little teas

This Novella had my emotions in overdrive. The ending of this novella left me feeling torn apart and in tears. I loved being back in this world but most of all I loved reading from Zane's point of view. The amount of love that Zane feels for Ari is so heart warming.

Light Of A Thousand Stars is told from Zane's POV and takes place before True Calling. We get to read about Zane and Ari's time together and it's evident they love each other deeply and are made for each other.

However the move to Novo was imminent and Zane was to be separated from Ari.

From this novella, we also read about Zane's best friend Gil and Ari's best friend Joy, bu

Just tear my heart out! My goodness this novella is a serious emotion tugger! I was confused by who I wanted Ari with and after reading Lovestruck I was leaning toward Cal but this novella gives you more from Zane and Ari's history that wasn't in the first two books. Beyond the relationship stuff I feel like this novella gives you more from the plot of the story that has played out over all the books so far. I enjoyed this read and feel like you should definitely read these books in the order Si ...more

I really really enjoyed this book. I just love the character of Zane. The book just made me fall even harder in love with him. Its so sad thou since you know what happens once Ari has to leave Zane behind. Zane is one of those heroes that you fall so hard for in a book. I really hope if him and Ari don't get together that he finds someone wonderful, and he doesn't die or end up all alone.

I absolutely loved this look back into the story of how Zane and Ari were before the move to Novo. It was interesting to see how it all played out when they found out she was leaving as well. I'm VERY curious as to what Ari is dealing with and was discussing with the therapist, I wonder if we'll find out in Destiny Rising. I'm a big fan of Zane so reading the whole story from his perspective was awesome. I really love this series!

This is just what I needed to tide me over for Destiny Rising, but it also has made me even more desperate for it! We learn that Ari has had a traumatic experience (which she probably lost from the Vita and nostalgia elixir)... is this hinting that the shocking cliffhanger from Beyond Reach was about this memory????
Amazing story that will make you even more desperate for the next book!

Gosh I love these short stories told from the male perspective. The first short (Lovestruck) was told from Cal's perspective while Light of a Thousand Stars is told from Zane's point of view. This was heartbreaking and wonderful. To get such emotion out of this short of a story is really amazing. Highly recommended for all True Calling universe fans, particularly for Team Zane fans!
