Last Star Burning (Last Star Burning #1) by Caitlin Sangster

Into the Wild

Read Last Star Burning (Last Star Burning #1) Online Free - Sev is branded with the mark of a criminal—a star burned into her hand. That’s the penalty for being the daughter of the woman who betrayed their entire nation.

Now her mother’s body is displayed above Traitor’s Arch, kept in a paralyzed half sleep by the same plague that destroyed the rest of the world. And as further punishment, Sev is forced to do hard labor to prove that she’s more valuable alive than dead.

When the government blames Sev for a horrific bombing, she must escape the city or face the chopping block. Unimaginable dangers lurk outside the city walls, and Sev’s only hope of survival lies with the most unlikely person—Howl, the chairman’s son. Though he promises to lead her to safety, Howl has secrets, and Sev can’t help but wonder if he knows more about her past—and her mother’s crimes—than he lets on.

But in a hostile world, trust is a luxury. Even when Sev’s life and the lives of everyone she loves may hang in the balance.

This novel was pure young adult perfection! While it's being marketed as a fantasy, I (like many other reviewers) felt this fell more under the realm of a science fiction/dystopian world with fairy tale elements, and it was absolutely brilliant. I had a hard time putting this book down; it had no...

Ok WOW this was an interesting book that was exactly 3% what I thought it would be. It's actually dystopian and not epic fantasy which...ya know, Cait, you might've picked up if you'd read the blurb. But whatever. Also shout out to me and the author having the same name. That NEVER happens (at le...

Sev's mother had betrayed their entire nation and now her body is displayed in a paralyzed half-sleep above Traitor’s Arch for all to see what happens when going against the ci...

It’s complete devastation.” Years after the fact, Sev is still ostracized and paying for the crimes of her traitor mother. When an attack on the city is blamed on Sev, she is flung into an escape that puts her ou...

The beginning of LAST STAR BURNING was a lot like trying to start a fire with wet wood; what should come easy is instead a lot of work and leaves you feeling frustrated right at the onset. In keeping with the comparison, the middle did seem to burn, the flames catching and leaving you feeling sat...

LAST STAR BURNING is a stunning debut by author Caitlin Sangster. The stakes could not be higher in this story about a girl who find herself at the heart of a conspiracy that threatens to destroy what remains of her war-torn world. First, I do want to call attention to the fact this book is largel...

Decently engaging, but... It seems as if maybe this book wasn't quite marketed properly. It's not fantasy, at all. It's a story set in a post-apocalyptic dystopian society (is there any other kind?), and although it isn't precisely clear where the City is geographically located, it is clearly inte...

I loved this book! I think the cover is slightly deceiving, which seems more fantasy, because this book is definitely dystopic/post-apocalyptic--but it ended up being a pleasant surprise because the worldbuilding is so twisty and smart and layered. Every time I thought I guessed where the book wa...
