The Starriest Summer (The Cycle of the Six Moons #1)
Author: Adelle Yeung
Release Date: December 20th 2015
Fifteen-year-old Michelle saves the world on a daily basis…with her trusty video game controller, of course! Naturally, she jumps at the chance to play an experimental virtual reality game. The beautiful fantasy world of Starrs? Check. The power to mold matter? Check. No reset button? Wait, she didn’t sign up for this! Turns out Starrs is really real, and to make matters worse, Michelle’s interference awakens the Cycle of the Six Moons, a series of devastating trials that will devour the universe. Fighting the apocalypse was way easier when danger stayed on the other side of the screen, but Michelle finds a secret weapon in her new-found powers. She uses them to rescue the crown prince of a powerful magic kingdom from their sworn enemies, a technologically-advanced cult that strives to eradicate magical blood. Michelle starts to fall for Prince Jayse, the only one who believes Michelle to be a savior rather than a curse. But not even video games could prepare her for what the cult has in store for them…
The reason why I requested to join the blog tour for this is because of the synopsis. Really. I love video games. It’s not always that I encounter a book about video games being turned to real life events or whatsoever.
I had high hopes for this book. Gladly, it did not fail me! It got me on the first chapter, and I just couldn’t stop reading it. It is so addicting and I never got bored while reading it. Adelle Yeung knows how to capture readers’ attention. Just when I was about to feel tired reading, something would catch my attention again and my tiredness would be gone! Fantastic!
I couldn’t say anything bad about it. It has a good plot. That good plot was written very goodly in a way that the words are just right and the arrangement of these words are really good too. It also has a good character development. Well, not just character “development”, but the characters, as well, are really good. They were described well. I could imagine them clearly. I love how the author made the characters connect to me. Like somehow they were really real. There are also two “swoon-worthy” guys. Ugh. How I fall in love with them because of their personality and characteristics… ❤ ❤
Overall, I really loved it! I love how natural (in good terms, I mean) it felt when I read it. I couldn’t wait to read the next book!
I highly recommend this book to everyone!
