I just finished reading the Shattered Promises series, not the Fallen Star series. Can I read the spin-off series without any issues or should I go back and read the Fallen Star version first?

When I found out there was going to be a spin off on the fallen star series I literally did a face plant on my bed and then screamed in my pillow, I was so excited there may have been a bit of hyperventilating too. And then I found out I would have to wait there may have been tears involved. The major thing that caused my excitement was Nicholas.
I really think that Gemma should dump Alex and go with Nicholas. That would give everyone a major WTF moment. I really love these books because Gemma and Alex save each other an equal amount so it's not sexist, oh, and every single person seems to have separate problems AISLINN: Luna problem, and saving the world ALEX: I just wanted to say Nicholas, your beautiful keep hanging on! Oh, and keep being your usual annoying self It makes things interesting P.
If anyone knows who Evan is Please Please tell me! I'm guessing somehow related to Gemma but I don't know View all 3 comments. Mar 07, Tom rated it really liked it Shelves: What's a girl to do? When last we see them, Gemma and her friends stop legion hordes of Death Walkers, led by her boyfriend's evil father, and the world is saved. She and her friends move into a nice castle, and suddenly, all sorts of hell starts breaking loose. Such is life for 18 year-old Gemma Lucas. She and her boyfriend, Alex, did indeed help save the world. There's a domestic tranquility about the place There are entities called Lost Souls.
They aren't supposed to be able to reach earth, but at least one has, and it takes control of one of the friends in a most annoying manner.click here
The Lost Soul
Once they figure out that mystery, the fab four learn certain secrets about The Fey "Faeries," to the underinformed. See, The Fey aren't really supposed to have any powers, at least not compared to Keepers, Foreseers, Vampires, and Witches, but suddenly, an internecine struggle between Fey sisters changes the rules, and the Fey are no longer a mere supernatural trifle. He leads his beloved into a trap, but was it his doing? Gemma dies a few times more--it's okay, because she's immune to death, and can come back from the afterlife--and each of the friends acts mighty possessed at one time or another.
This book builds on the mythology from The Fallen Star Series, and it's a good story. One huge difference, though, is in the physical relationships between the characters. Aislin and Laylen have rekindled their old romance, and Gemma and Alex are very much in love. Everyone has their own bedroom, but there seems to be a lot of frequent sleeping over.
There is no mention of sex, however. There's heaving and moaning and touching and wanting, but apparently, nobody's actually succeeded in having sex. You'd think they would go ahead and pull the trigger, seeing as the world almost ended--and may still end--but if you go by the letter of the book, everyone stops at heavy petting.
Once, poor Alex gets his hand under Gemma's shirt, up to the bottom of her bra, before she rebuffs him, or some monster interrupts. My sincere hope--for all these characters' sake--is that they're really having sweaty monkey sex all over the place, but that it's left out of the narrative owing to the Young Adult readership.

One quirk I noticed this time is that author Jessica Sorensen frequently verbs her nouns. The only example I can think of right now see the previous paragraph about nookielessness , would be "Alex backdoored Gemma," but that would be inappropriate, so forget I said it As a rule, I like when she does this--I enjoy when a skilled writer takes liberties with the language.
Sometimes, however, it backfires. Once, when Alex is driving fast, he's described as "throttling the car up the driveway. To "throttle-up" is usually used to describe what a pilot does on take-off: That's the compound form though: To throttle most commonly means to choke or strangle. This just made me laugh, as I envisioned Alex choking his classic muscle car as it rolled up the driveway. This is a minor quibble. Like the Fallen Star series, Jessica Sorensen proves herself to be an excellent storyteller. This book felt different from the previous series, though. I'm guessing it's because we have familiar characters placed in new dynamics.
Where Gemma was a neophyte in the original series, she has far more power in the new group dynamics. Even when she loses some of her abilities, her comportment in the Fallen Star finale earned her respect from her counterparts. They will give you a solid grounding in the world of Gemma, Alex, Aislin, and Laylen. Plus, they're awesome books.
There's a restlessness, a rebelliousness that wasn't in the first series. When one of the good characters becomes possessed and acts bad, I find that character a whole lot more appealing. Either way, I can't wait for book two, just to see where Ms Sorensen takes us next. I felt everything as Gemma did too. They have a lot to deal with. Gemma then, must find and save Alex, and she ends up having to trust Nicholas to do it, the half-fey Foreseer is a manipulative character, which always asks a price for any help.
Then we find all is not what it seems, and she starts doing odd things, and then we find her mind is not all her own.
Its an interesting twist, and really had me reading late into the night, to see what happens next. And of course there is a pretty big cliffhanger. I sure wonder how they will get themselves out of this mess. I like the introduction of Evan, too bad he came so late into the story. I sure we will be seeing more of him. I was very satisfied with the action and adventures of this new spin-off series of The Fallen Star series.
I do not want to add any spoilery, but will say, this book will have your heart aching. If I say much more, it will spoil it for you. Jul 21, Delphina rated it it was amazing Shelves: I do not know how she did it, but Jessica took the Fallen Star series to a whole new level without it feeling forced or contrived.
I adored the Fallen Star series and was beyond giddy when I found out this series was in the works. The story takes place after the dust has settled from ending of the first series. The characters are not much older, but boy have they grown up. This is still a fairly clean YA, but it definitely heated up. I think the genius in this book is the point of v Wow! I think the genius in this book is the point of view. I can not really say to much about this without giving away a huge spoiler, but the author stays true to her point of view to the point that I was floored by one of the turns of events.
I know I have far more to say on this series,but words are really alluding me right now.

I think it is because I am fearful of giving away spoilers. If you have not read The Fallen Star series, you could probably read this with only a wee bit of confusion. The author does not dumb down the story by retelling the initial series, but the key facts are there and the main story arc is completely different from the first series. That being said, I highly recommend you check out The Fallen Star.
Book one is free right now, so it is like a risk free trial. Oh and I loved this book! I guess I should have started with that. I was really excited when Jessica announced that Gemma and Alex were getting another series as I adored them a couple and I loved the Fallen Star series! I originally read this book when it was first released and I couldn't finish it so I decided to try re-reading it as the next book in the series was coming out!
I loved it more the second time around! The plot was what put me off a little from reading this book as I wasn't sure if I was really going to enjoy it but Jessica added twists and turn I was really excited when Jessica announced that Gemma and Alex were getting another series as I adored them a couple and I loved the Fallen Star series! The plot was what put me off a little from reading this book as I wasn't sure if I was really going to enjoy it but Jessica added twists and turns to keep me interested!
I found it a little bit difficult to get into to start off with but after I was able to work out what was going on and also figure out where some new characters that were introduced stood then I was able to enjoy the book and fully understand what was going on! The characters had grown so much since the Fallen Star series and I loved their changes! Gemma was again the main character and I connected with her just as much as I did in the other series! I continued to love her and her personality! I liked her changes as the plot made her change and it wasn't the Gemma that we had all come to love but I do have to say that I found it really strange reading Gemma like she was but it was fun as well!
Alex in this book was so hot! For some of this book Alex was completely different but the plot required him to be! I thought that he was a bit of a ass when his personality changed but there was still some of the Alex that I had come to love in this book as well! Laylen and Aislin kicked ass in this book! I wasn't really expecting Laylen's personality to change as well as Gemma and Alex's but it was all for the plot! The ending left it at a really amazing cliff-hanger which has given me some ideas foe where the next book in this series will go!
I am looking forward to seeing where the next book, The Evanescence goes after the cliff-hanger in this book as it was amazing! The new cover is beyond stunning! I didn't realise how well it suits the book until after I had read it! Jul 09, Seirra rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Lost Soul series is a spin-off to the Fallen Star series. It's even better than its predecessor! It's a simple and fast-paced read. This new series continues to follow Gemma Lucas' and Alex's story. Taking place a short amount of time after "The Promise". It's full of mystery, action, and secrets.
Just when you think you have an idea of what's going on you're thrown for a loop and have to keep revising your initial thoughts because you won't expect where The Lost Soul will take you.
You'll be shocked on more than one occasion. It keeps around almost all characters from the previous series so you get an even more in depth insight into the character's motives which is deliciously fascinating. Gemma learns more about her heritage and buried past making her story additionally compelling. Incredibly amazing series that will leave you wanting more. Gemma and Alex are alive and that's what's important, right? After surviving the afterlife she's ready for a mundane lifestyle with her other half but first there's just one little thing she needs to do first - rescue her father from the Forbidden Room.

Unexpectedly but not surprisingly she finds she needs a particularly annoying faerie to help her solve some of her daunting problems - but for a price. In her dreams she sees terrifying things that could tear apart the normal life she's worked so hard to build for herself and Alex, nothing's safe not the past or future.
