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?

Interview:I would like to welcome Stephanie Keyes author of The Star Catcher to Diane's Book Blog.
What is your favorite part of the Star Child series?
I loved writing the scene in The Star Catcher where Gabe and Singer go into the organ loft in St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin. I had a blast writing that scene.
How long did it take you to write The Star Catcher?
I wrote the first draft of The Star Catcher in about twelve weeks. It helped that I worked on part of it during 2012’s NaNoWriMo. It was an insane time. I worked on rewrites for another four months after that.
If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?
Kellen. He and I share a lot of the same personality traits. Plus, he’s a writer, too. J
What's your favorite book-turned movie?
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows
What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?
If you’d asked me a year ago, I would have said paper. Then my husband bought me a Kindle. Now I am totally addicted to ebooks. Occasionally, I’ll go back but I am a gadget freak anyway so it was only a matter of time.
