Fractured Jewel, by Brenda Hiatt is a novella between books 4 and 5 in the Starstruck series. I was happy to see this book because I loved the characters M and Rigel. This story picks up after the end of book 4 when M tells her Aunt Theresa about about her being a Martian princess, her people, and the potential disasters that she and Rigel were able to thwart. However, when M’s uncle finds out, it sets off a chain of events that led to another life or death scenario for M.
I really enjoyed the story and loved seeing the story pick up from book 4. I do wish it was a full book, but I will take what I can get. Judging from the other titles after this one, it looks like the other books pick up stories from other characters. I’m not sure how I feel about that as M and Rigel are so fascinating, but we’ll see. In the meantime, this book definitely didn’t disappoint. The action toward the end once again had me clinging to my seat and I couldn’t stop reading until the end.
If you’re a fan of the previous Starstruck novels, you will be sure to enjoy this one. And once you get caught up, definitely check out her website as it looks like another installment is out! Yay!
