For all of the people who got upset with the flip flop between Gemma and Alex, if you read jesica sorensens blog she siad it was going to happen. For those of you who think it was too short, it was basically the same length of the other books she has written. For the fans of the series, she is actually going to do a spin of series called the fallen souls which is due to come out June 23, 2012. The story is in fact going to be told feom Gemmas point of view so dont get upset. I have a spoiler alert though, according to her blog, Alex is going to dissapper wihout a trace. I know what youre thinking, and i really dont want him to go eather but i would be on the lookout for teasers on her blog. All in all, i fell in love with the falen star series and i hope you read the spin off series the fallen soul.

I kept wanting to turn the page! I read the series for like two days straight. The connection they had really intrigued me. I didnt want it to end. I think she should write an after thing thaat brings the characters back together and they have a new adventure!!!!!!!!!!

This final book in the Fallen Star series is, actually, not the final book at all. It is, but it isn&rsquo;t, if you follow what I just said. Having just completed the novel, I was sad to see that the series was over, especially because not all my questions were answered. However, at the very end of the novel I was informed that The Lost Soul is already out and it&rsquo;s a spinoff of the Fallen Star series. It&rsquo;s a new series, but it continues the story of Alex and Gemma. Happy dance, the story does continues! In the fourth installment of the Fallen Star series, Sorensen gives the reader both Gemma&rsquo;s and Alex&rsquo;s viewpoint throughout the story. It&rsquo;s a first for the series, but I absolutely loved having two points of view and I hope this continues in the Fallen Soul series. Being able to follow both characters throughout the novel was amazing, especially as Gemma and Alex were away from each other throughout much of the story. This allowed me to stay connected to both characters as Sorensen begins to bring them back together again, which I really enjoyed. I have to say that the ending wasn&rsquo;t really what I was expecting. Based on all the twists and turns within not only this novel, but also the entire series, I really thought there would be some sort of knock down drag out fight at the end in order to save both Alex and Gemma from death. There isn&rsquo;t. It all sort of neatly resolves itself, and while I love a happy ending, it did leave me scratching my head. However, like I said, there is a spinoff to the series, so it&rsquo;s not over yet, and I&rsquo;m sure we&rsquo;ll learn even more enticing information and perhaps some of my questions will be answered as well. Overall, I really liked this series and I highly suggest picking it up if you haven&rsquo;t tried and of Sorensen&rsquo;s novels yet.

THIS SERIES WAS AMAZING!!! I could not put my phone down(nook app). But i was wondering if there was going to be another book? because they mentioned possibly knowing how to free Gemma's father? Also as awesome as this book was as of all the other ones, I feel the part about saving the world was a bit rushed in the last couple of chapters. Like there wasn't enough details about the part that they were suppose to die. The series has been leading up to this one scene that is the make or break of the story and I feel it fell short a bit. It was just so brief and a bit of a disappointment.

I liked this book! It made me cry and made me laugh, smile and want to punch something! Goood to know theres also another story/series about this. I thought the tatts they got of the star was cool and cute ;) i liked the meaning of this story about being soulmates and saving you forever, and never let anything Happen to you :) it kinda reminds me that in the future i could find my soul mate :) thats a really longg time but it doesnt hurt to start early! Anyways i thought the series but kinda cute it was also different then most books i read.
