Review of Star Crossed series (1-4) by Rachel Higginson

Happy Monday! I totally planned to post this on Friday but here we are! I hope you all had an awesome weekend 🙂 I of course did not go grocery shopping so oops…. But enough with boring adult things! Lets talk about books!

So I had this omnibus for the Star Crossed series and my friend Shannon (hi Shannon!) was reading them so I decided to give them a re-read (I totally forgot I had read them so it worked out!) and here it is!

The Star-Crossed Series Box Set includes Reckless Magic, Hopeless Magic, Fearless Magic and Endless Magic.

Reckless Magic:
16 year old Eden Matthews has been in and out of private schools for the last two years. She can’t seem to stop herself from closing them down. Kingsley is her last chance to finish high school.

She is focused on just getting through graduation until she realizes Kingsley is not like the other private schools she’s been to. But after meeting Kiran Kendrick, the boy who won’t leave her alone and seems to be the source of all her problems, she is suddenly in a world that feels more make-believe than reality.

Reckless Magic is an intricate story about mystery, adventure, magic and forbidden love. Eden Matthews is an unlikely heroine determined to save the world and be with her one, true love before it’s too late.

Hopeless Magic:
After returning home from Romania, and successfully saving her best friend Lilly, Eden Matthews must come to terms with her future as an Immortal.

seems to lurk around every corner as Eden struggles to keep her true identity a secret and protect those that she loves.

Eden must find a way to be with Kiran, or turn her back on him forever and fight to save her people.

Fearless Magic:
Eden Matthew’s world is in shambles. Her grandfather viciously murdered, her twin brother held without magic, and her best friends imprisoned, all at the hands of the one man that was supposed to love her for eternity. She has been betrayed, and now she is being hunted by a king that wants her dead.

Eden must pick up the pieces of her life and stand alone against the tyranny that threatens to destroy her world. Alone she must find a way to rebuild the Resistance, locate her missing parents, save her loved ones and take down the monarchy.

Endless Magic:
Eden Matthews is a prisoner in the very household she set out to destroy. She is without magic and engaged to the same boy who betrayed her and everyone she loves.

With her wedding looming on the horizon, conditions for her people continue to worsen and her goal of offering her kingdom freedom seems further away than ever.

However, there is more at stake for Eden than just an unwanted marriage. Her heart is on the line too, as she fights the pressures of palace life, the prejudice ingrained in her people and a seemingly unbeatable king.

My Thoughts:
Okay first of all- how pretty are those covers? I love them! I think that the story was really well done too. On of my favorite things about Rachel Higginson is that her books are always so innocent. Sure her characters get hot and bothered and make-out but if you are one of those that doesn’t want to read a bunch of sex scenes I recommend these books! I also really like how much emphases is put on how important sex is. There is a scene that it is mentioned that sex is a soul binding thing and their people wait until they are married to share that with their partner. I love love love that they not only don’t have sex but that it is mentioned as to why. I am a mom with three daughters so maybe that is why I feel like this is such a big deal but I don’t care- thank you Rachel for that! But it is more than just that reason I liked the book. The world was real and the characters (even the side ones) where people that I found myself caring about and I wanted to fight right there on their side. Rachel created a world that a reader can get lost in and that is one thing I really love about reading!

My recommendation:
This book is a 4 star read for me. I recommend this for anyone who really enjoys a sci-fi type of story that takes place in a world with magic. It is a great escape and the imagery is amazing! The nice thing about this book is that its good for teens so for those of you looking for things to help your younger readers engaged this is a good choice! Let me know what you thought of the books!
