Additional Information

An ancient obligation... A reluctant wizard who despises having it forced upon him.... A mystical romance full of passion, mystery and intrigue... A conflicting power struggle haunting two magical brothers..... DARKSTAR...the epic begins. The powerful Warshaw Wizardry threatens extinction when Ayden, its disloyal heir, is banned and his younger brother, seventeen year old, Alec, is expected to resume their grandfather’s position as Grand Wizard of Warwickshire. Alec is reluctantly thrown into an unseen magical world where he detests the painful powers he begins receiving. Disillusioned and in danger, he is sent to live with a trusted uncle and he is baffled by an unusual attraction to acquaintance, sixteen year old Amrie. Intrigued by his British background, Amrie’s life dangerously intertwines with Alec’s as she witnesses his struggles with peculiar powers and as they try to figure out their strange but definite connection. Amrie’s mysterious dreams, a gift from her dying grandfather and Alec’s family crest seem to be the links that bond them together. DARKSTAR will have readers feeling the frustration of an ancient wizard and anticipating a romance between Alec and Amrie as well as the conflicting power struggle haunting two magical brothers. Will Amrie entice Alec to use the powers he despises? Will Alec accept the wizardry … or will the Mysticryss cease to exist? DarkStar is the first novel of a trilogy and it's conclusion will leave readers greatly anticipating the second of the series; Wizard.

The beauty of social media is that you hear about things that you probably would never have known existed, if someone hadn't recommended it to you..
Which is what happened with DarkStar.. I saw musician Matt Lande tweet about this book,and how great it was (and he doesn't normally read books) so I thought to myself then it must be good... so I decided to buy it and check it out... I was so glad I did....I'm no professional reviewer but when I like something I want others to enjoy it as well.. share the love

I love a great love story, you know the kind where the odds are stacked against them and yet they are forced together by Danger, suspense, drama, magic & love. You can't fight fate..... I loved this book so much that I found myself not wanting to finish it because I didn't want it to end!! My favourite part is Amrie's reaction when she finds out the truth.. No I won't spoil it but you will have to read the book to find out ;-)

I have a few copies of it... Read more
Dark Star is an amazing read! With most books I read a few chapters and continue later, but with this book, I couldn't put it down and read to the end. I've read it 4 times already and it has become 1 of my favorite books. The characters, Amrie and Alec really pull you in. You feel their struggles and the beauty of their connection, you find yourself rooting for them and the detail of scenery makes you feel you're there with them. This book will keep you wanting more and I can not wait for the continuance of the trilogy. Carol is an amazing and talented author and you can read the passion in her writing. Once you step into the world of Dark Star, you'll want to stay. This is a must read for everyone of all ages!
I have just started this book and I must say, I'd be more engaged if someone had actually edited it. The grammatical errors tear you out of the story and make you realize you're reading, not enjoying a story. I hope Hansen gets hersef a decent editor, because I think this could be a great book except for that fact.

Update: I'm 60% of the way through this book. The grammar and punctuation errors are blatant and plentiful. It's painful to read. Too bad, too, as the story is pretty good.
