Overview

In the newest book in Michael Griffo's mesmerizing Darkborn Legacy series, a small Nebraska town becomes a battleground in a fight between light and dark--and one girl must look to the stars to reclaim her life. . .

Dominy Robineau will never be just a girl again. At sixteen, a curse awakened the animal inside, and now every full moon transforms her into a creature of terrifying power. But she is not alone.

Dom's enemy, Nadine--a descendant of Orion, the Hunter--won't hesitate to kill to increase her strength. There's a new arrival in town too, and shifting alliances that will bring even more secrecy, mystery, and death to Weeping Water. Dom's relationship with her boyfriend Caleb, her connection to her best friend Jess, and everything she believes about her family and her past is about to be put to the test. The only way to keep herself and those she loves alive is to strike a bargain that may destroy the last shreds of her humanity. . .

"A compelling werewolf story." --Booklist on Moonglow

VOYA, June 2014 (Vol. 37, No. 2) - Meghann Meeusen
Dominy Robineau has only just begun to acclimate to her new life as a werewolf, but the challenges she has to face are far from over. Still hunted by local police, Dominy must rely on her wolf pack friends more than ever, yet nothing about her life is simple. Jess and Nap offer warnings and hope from beyond the grave, but Nadine’s ominous pregnancy, the arrival of the mysterious and beautiful Vera, and strange behavior from Archie make everyone question what is on the horizon. While Dominy struggles to understand her dual nature as girl and wolf, she also grows closer than ever to Caleb, all while preparing for what might prove to be the greatest battle she has ever faced. The third novel in the Darkborn Legacy series will not disappoint fans of this chaotic world of mythology, witches, and werewolves. Dominy is as remarkable as ever, and those familiar with her story will be mesmerized by both the nonstop action and her internal battles. The text’s distinctive use of descriptive detail and humor will likely keep some readers engaged, but unfortunately these elements also occasionally limit the story’s meaning and character development, resulting in stereotypical characterization and sometimes even disrespectful cultural depictions. Nonetheless, Starfall hosts an interesting cast of characters and certainly brings something unique to teen paranormal fiction. Reviewer: Meghann Meeusen; Ages 15 to 18.
