Comments White Star

  • Laura (Kyahgirl)

    3.5/5Geez, I thought I wrote a review of this book a few years ago. It was a bit better than Dagger Star, the first one in the series and a good, light read. I am curious to read the last book in the series (view spoiler)[ because Bethral goes back to the Plains at the end on a wave of wild magic, with Ezren storyteller, after a wandering warrior Priest has a prophetic vision! (hide spoiler)].


  • Obaid Haroon

    I read this before Red Gloves not after. And that raised a few questions for me during the book but they were few and fat between. Didn't stop me from enjoying the book itself. Call me a romantic. Or just pathetic, but I really enjoyed the cliche characters. The evil Orrin Blackheart and the priestess Evelyn. Falling in love? How dare they?!?Almost at the first glance they got it bad. A kidnapping, release and divine intervention. Can't get much more 'meant to be' than that. And if you wanted pr [...]

    Excellent book!White Star by USA Today Bestselling author Elizabeth Vaughan is an excellent book. I was hooked from the very beginning and finished reading it at 4:18 AM. Ouch! The writing is fantastic the Vaughan got her hooks into me right away with tense scenes and snappy dialogue. She has so many great opening lines, and closing lines of chapters, which really impressed me.Most importantly, the main characters: Lord Orrin and Lady Evelyn are very well done. Orrin is one of those bad guys who [...]


  • Steven

    Like all of Ms. Vaughan's books, White Star is a cross-genre romance/fantasy story, and will easily appeal to both.The romance elements are there, but are not so heavy-handed to turn off fans of fantasy; likewise, the fantasy elements do not intrude into the romance.White Star is the second book in a series that started with Dagger-Star. Because this is not simply fluffy romance, you will most likely want to read Dagger-Star first so that you can quickly be up to speed. It is not strictly necess [...]


  • Darcy

    This was a fun book set in a very different world. I liked the set up of the world and what was happening. This book is a good addition to Dagger Star. Some of my favorite parts are the off beat side characters, like Orrin's band of soliders and the old man that helped Evelyn and Orrin out. Can't wait for the next book to see where it takes us.


  • Blodeuedd Finland

    White Star is the sequel to Dagger-star that came out last year. It's fantasy romance set in a world she described in an earlier trilogy.The Lady High Priestess Evelyn is virtuous and loved. She is one of the leaders of the rebellion against the usurper who has claimed the throne. She is a healer who helps the injured and the sick.Orrin Blackheart, the scourge of the Palins is despised and hated. He is known as an evil man who stands at his Duchess side against those who rebel. He has killed man [...]

    You can also find this review on my blog: Wings of NephilimI had the strangest feeling I had read this before the whole time I was reading. Which is quite likely. Oh well. Either way I was less than impressed.This is probably one of the worst cases of insta-love I've ever had the displeasure of reading. They meet in her cell. He moves her to a tower. He brings her foodonce. He kisses her the next time and she's somehow ok with that. He frees her and becomes the prisoner instead. She brings him f [...]


  • mlady_rebecca

    For a loosely bound series, these books are fairly tightly coupled. The beginning of the second book involves the end of the first book told from a different perspective, and in greater detail. I imagine the same will be said with respect to the second and third books, as there was a lead in to the third book at the end of this book.In other words, the timeline is fairly linear, we just move the focus to different characters. So, unlike most books I label loosely bound, I'd recommend that they b [...]


  • Francesca Rock

    Well that was a disappointing synopsis of this book. And unfortunately, I already gave away the physical copy I had - so I can't give you a better one. Darn it! Anyway - I loved this book! I really liked the first one because of the somewhat feminist message. But I liked this one even more because it managed to be feminist and romantic. Hoooray!The characters were excellent together. You could tell immediately that they dug each other despite the whole complicated captive/captor relationship. An [...]

    DNF at about halfway through. This book is fantasy romance, which is exactly what I was in the mood for when I picked it up, but it suffered from several things for me:1. Being a sequel, despite the fact that it didn't say so anywhere in the book--ugh! (That being said, no one looking this up on will have this problem, so it's a moot point.)2. IMMEDIATE attraction that seemed to come out of nowhere. There was no sense of settling into the romance; it was just abruptly there.3. The sense that al [...]


  • Ann York

    This book was very good and i couldn't put it down it is not what i would read but it is about a woman called evie and she is a high priestess who gets kidnapped and then she gets away from them because the bad guy lets her go but while he lets her go she has to go to this other place and then the bad guys find her again and they try to kill her but the guy that tried to kill her the first time helps her this time and he starts to fall in love with her but he tells they can't because they are so [...]


  • Joanne

    I really did not like this book, and it does take a lot for me to not find something enjoyable about a book. The characters would have had more believable personality if they had been cut out from cardboard. I didn't buy into the insta-love. It was badly done. The plot idea was actually ok, but the writing was just boring. I didn't get any excited just one more page feeling. Overall, I thought it was as dull as ditchwater. I love fantasy and historical novels. I love romance and romance elements [...]


  • Paranormal Romance

    The general in an army of zombies led by an evil witch kidnaps the white witch before immediately having the tables flipped and the general becoming the prisoner. Though he's portrayed as evil, it's soon becomes clear that he's very far from being so-though that doesn't stop him from being outcast. It felt like the characters never really fell in love. From the jump it just seemed like they knew they loved each other. On one hand it was romantic and sweet but one the other I'd like to have seen [...]


  • Katherine

    2.5 stars - a little bit better than the last one.I decided to read this series because, supposedly, it ties into the Warlands series, but really, you could completely skip the first two books in this one and read the third (so far only slightly better than this one) and then you'd know what was going on and how the two series relate. These books read like they were written by an amateur, poorly imitating cliche themes that are already overused in the romance genre. They are nothing like the boo [...]


  • Siuane Sadi

    I loved the fantasy, but the little war lacked details. This was more of a romantic fantasy than anything else. I liked Warprize better although I am still waiting for another book in this series. It looks like the chronicles of the Warlands and this entire series is taking place in one (albiet far away) areas anyway. I am waiting for the third book and holding my breath, hoping that it will be better. It was an enjoyable read, but still wish that Vaughan will create stories at par with her firs [...]


  • Wendy Palmer

    I think this book greatly suffered from not being particularly standalone - I hadn't read the first in the series, and I'm guessing a lot of the character development, especially of the suposedly anti-hero male lead, happened in that book. His descent into darkness wasn't ever properly presented here, and his 'redemption' and forgiveness by Evelyn was far too easy. Then there was a bunch of new problems tacked on after the too-early climax, which made the book seem poorly planned.


  • Haley

    With the minor exception of a break for dinner and a run to the post office, White Star has been read and enjoyed. And I did, overall, like White star much better then Dagger-Star. It seemed moreI'm not sure. Something more, though. Maybe I liked Our High Lady Priestess better then our Lady Killer, or maybe I was attracted to the utter darkness of Lord Orrin Blackhart to the relative darkness Josiah inspired. I will be interested to see what comes next.


  • Simba

    Some pretty serious issues with consistency, storytelling, character motivations. I nearly walked away from this about 1/3 of the way in, but stuck it out. I was telling a friend - this book reads like the author wrote scene 15, went back and wrote scene 6, skipped ahead to 12, backtracked to 3just very choppy, with character actions not arising in a 'natural' way from previous actions, expressed traits, etc. So, very *meh* but it picked up enough at the end to propel me into the next book.


  • Patrice

    Well it seems each book focuses on a different set of characters. We're done with Red and Josiah and now on to Evie and Orrin. I'm pretty sure the next one will be about Bethral and Ezhren. This one started before the last one ended, so I got to see some of the same events from a different perspective. That was interesting. The characters were engaging and the plot was clever. I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next.


  • Clarke

    This was not my favorite book in the series but it was still good. You get to see all the old characters we met in Dagger-Star with Red. This story is about Orrin Blackhart and Lady Evelyn in their journey of redemption and love. Orrin must return to the Black Hills and destroy the Odium if he wishes to be pardoned of his crimes and those of his men.


  • Barbara ★

    High Priestess Evelyn and Orrin Blackhart, Scourge of Palins, join forces to defeat Lady Elanore, Baroness of Black Hills and her hoard of zombies. It is a rousing tale of love and war. It's book two in the Star series but it really is a stand alone novel.Well written with descriptions well enough to feel like you're there in this world created by Elizabeth Vaughan.


  • Gemma

    Muchos enjoyable. Nice easy read, engaging storyline including many characters known from the first book and with a few new introdutions too. A few questions from Red Gloves were answered here and a few more were raised that I'm sure will be addressed in the third in the trilogy. Nice little fluffy romance too.


  • Kelly

    I found this book a light easy read to get into, it's been a few years since I last read the first book so felt a bit fuzzy about previous events. But it slowly came back.Have bought a copy of destiny's star and waiting for it to arrive.


  • Deborah

    I haven't read the first book of this series so didn't know any of the history of the characters but it wasn't had to work out as I read the book. Not as good as Warprize and was a bit disappointed however lots of positives strong female lead, situations quickly changing and romance!


  • Ellinor

    It's pretty certain what will happen at the end of the book, but the journey there is very enjoyable. Also fun to know for certain that this series and the Warlands trilogy hang together. Pity that we're going to have to wait for the next part since this one was just issued.


  • MaryLennox

    Much better, seriously. Better to keep a story simple - good job, EV! I really liked the romance between our hero/heroine, it was much better felt this time than the previous story. And we have the source of the mysterious light in the Plains - so here goes nothing - third story!


  • Jynt

    Relationship wise - Very little character motivation and thus, believability.


  • Lesli

    Interesting read. Perfect for the gym or the commute home.


  • Kendra

    Re-Read.Fast read, picks up with a bit of an overlap from Dagger-Star, with Evelyn and Orrin.


  • Dani

    DNF - stopped about 25% - wasn't bad, just not my bag of tea
