*REVIEW* When Stars Die (The Stars Trilogy) by Amber Skye Forbes

Reviewer: Donna
Rating: 4 Stars

To me, Amelia is a a very strange character. She is wanting to join the professed order at the Cathedral Reim so she must partake in trials to show her commitment to them. She has a best friend, Colette who is going through the trials with her and Oliver is her priest friend who she has secret feelings for him but can't express them because of the rules. I was a bit confused with these beings called Shadowmen. Only certain people can see them and they are hunting for witches to kill and become one of them to help them in their war. The only problem was i didn't understand what war they were referring to. Even though that was confusing, the book sucked me in and i had to continue to find out what was going to having. Some people are not who they appear to be and it tests Amelia's trust in people. I found it really exciting and confusing but i loved it. I would love to understand more about the shadowmen and what they are all about. Overall it was a confusing, addictive book.

Amelia Gareth's brother is a witch and the only way to save her family from the taint in his blood is to become a professed nun at Cathedral Reims in the snowy city of Malva. However, in order to become professed, she must endure trials that all nuns must face.

Surviving these trials is not easy, especially for Amelia, who is being stalked by shadowy beings only she can see. They're searching for people they can physically touch, because only those they can touch can see them. Amelia soon learns why she is being stalked when she accidentally harms her best friend with fire during the third trial. Fire is a witch's signature. The shadows are after witches.

Now Amelia must decide what to do: should she continue on her path to profession knowing there is no redemption, or should she give up on her dream and turn away from Cathedral Reims in order to stop the shadows who plan to destroy everything she loves?
