Achingly Beautiful

Obsidian and Stars follows Mya as she begins a hopeful journey to Kol's clan as a means of introducing an engagement. Problems arise and suddenly she has to make a choice, lose her sister forever, or lose Kol in one way but not another. Hopeful she can still have them both, she runs away with her sister to show her brother a lesson, to let him know that her sister deserves to marry her love as well. Nothing goes as planned, however.

Much like Ivory and Bone, this sequel shares a lot of insight to the clan's inner workings, their hierarchy and touch choices for survival. Heartening bonds of friendship and love, through protection and sacrifice, we journey with the characters as they all learn many important, inspirational lessons. Obsidian and Stars aches with desire. It is a very real journey that appeals to the hearts of all, and keeps you flipping pages even as you cry for the loss and pain the characters must face.

Heartache is not all that they must war with however. Previous clans that have presented issues with them are now plotting against them, behind them. Kill the leaders and take over the clan, make it good again, is what they aspire. But with darkness in their hearts and greed fueling them, everyone is a pawn and no one is safe from being next. Not only that, Mya and her sister meet a young girl on an abandoned island, and she is in need of protecting from some bad people. Mya is courageous and brave, compassionate and honest, and so she takes the girl under her wing and will fight for her. Survival for oneself is important, but it is utterly selfless for one to put another's well being above their own when they are a stranger and not of your clan.

Overall, Obsidian and Stars is another amazing novel full of high rising emotions and engrossing tales that keep you wanting more. Another haunting encounter of loss and pain that stays with you well after the pages can no longer be flipped for more.
