The Burning Star by Jessie Lane
Can she reach her destiny before tragedy strikes?

The doctors have told Kay that she will die before she reaches her eighteenth birthday. Her mother’s determination to save her life leads them to a move outside of Asheville, NC to a new set of cancer specialists in the hopes to help her. But it’s not what Kay and her Mom find in the doctor’s offices in Asheville that lead them on the journey to save her before time runs out. It’s what Kay finds in the woods outside of Asheville, and an inhumanly gorgeous guy named Ryan, instead.

Myths and fairy tales come to life before Kay’s eyes, bringing her closer to the ultimate cure if she can stay alive long enough to get there. And if the cancer doesn’t kill her before she finds the cure the secrets her mother has hidden from her may be the beginning of the end.

My Review  
This was a really interesting & unique story, a great combination of some of my favorite paranormal characters. Definitely lots of excitement as Kay begins to realize everything around her is not as it seems, including her own life. I actually thought I had the story figured out a few pages in, but man I was in for a surprise! There are several good twists to keep things interesting. And there’s no shortage of paranormal hotties, either! Although it didn’t take me long to decide which one I was rooting for! Don’t wanna spoil the story for you so let’s just that this is definitely a book I would recommend & I absolutely can’t wait to see what happens next!!

  1. Thank you for hosting this giveaway *smile*

  2. This looks like a interesting read! Thanks for the giveaway JLynn! robynaburrell@yahoo.com

  3. I'm intrigued, what can I say?! To take a topic like cancer that is on society's agenda like never before (just think of Relay for Life," the wrist bands, Armstrong started, and such) and interweave it with a paranormal storyline, is something different...sprinkle in some cute guys and you have an (almost) believable story :)

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway and the chance of winning this cool sounding book!
