Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–8—This latest installment of "Rick Riordan Presents" features Korean-inspired mythology filled with goddesses, witch clans, ghosts, and fantastical creatures. Despite her family's attempts at inclusion, 12-year-old Riley Oh has always felt invisible, like an outsider. They are Gom, one of six secret clans of gifted witches. Riley's adopted and doesn't possess the magical healing powers they all do. Driven by her need to belong, she hatches a plan with her sister Hattie to cast a spell that would share Hattie's magic with Riley. When the spell backfires, Riley must step up to save Hattie and confront the truth of her heritage. During her quest, Riley learns to challenge her biases and that every story contains more than one perspective. The most important lesson, though, is one of self-acceptance as she finds strength and belonging with those who love her. While most tweens aren't tasked with impossible missions to save the world, many can relate to Riley's feelings of insecurity and need for validation. She is a heroine whose flaws make her relatable in this highly imaginative and original story. Many Korean terms and authentic cultural references enrich the action-packed plot, including crave-inducing food descriptions. VERDICT Full of humor and thrills, this bewitching fantasy blends Korean mythology into an empowering adventure.—Sophie Kenney, Aurora P.L., IL --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

"[In this] fast-paced adventure, unique clan identities are cleverly imagined, and Riley's emotional arc and journey to self-acceptance shine through."―
Publishers Weekly

Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal

"I wish I could go back in time and hand this book to young Ellen. I would have loved it so much, because this was what I was missing in my life. Thank you, Graci, for writing it!"―
Ellen Oh, author of The Dragon Egg Princess and the Spirit Hunters series

"Korean mythology gets a modern twist in this rollicking adventure by debut author Graci Kim. From entering a secret temple by way of the fried chicken counter at H-Mart to summoning a goddess at the Santa Monica Pier, every chapter of this novel delights and surprises. At times laugh-out-loud hilarious, at times heartwarming and poignant,
The Last Fallen Star will capture the imaginations of readers for years to come!"―Axie Oh, author of Rebel Seoul and Rogue Heart

"The elaborate magical community, riddled with tensions, is a lot of fun, and the urgency of saving Hattie drives the pace and Riley's growth into her true self. Best of all is the way the mythology and folklore mix with the modern world and Korean/Korean-American pop culture."―
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

*"From a compelling and endearing supporting cast to the rich and tantalizing Korean cuisine explored in its pages, this pays homage to traditional Korean magic and mythos while infusing it with a contemporary story line and characters readers will fall in love with in an instant. Riley's unmistakable voice and her relatable search for and exploration of her identity will connect with readers at their cores, offering a truly promising start to a fantastical series."―
Booklist (starred review)

"The Last Fallen Star folds Korean culture as well as diaspora feelings into a magical adventure. The way Graci Kim takes traditions and lore and incorporates them into an exciting contemporary fantasy setting makes my heart soar as a Korean reader. This fantastical story is filled with heart and humor. Readers who love magical adventures, complex family relationships, and sisterhood--not to mention food!--should pick up The Last Fallen Star immediately!"―Kat Cho, internationally best-selling author of Vicious Spirits --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely AMAZING!!
By Belle’s Middle Grade on June 4, 2021
This was SO GOOD! Some compared it to THE Dragon Pearl series, but the only similarities I see are they are both based on mythology(1 is Chinese, 1 Korean), & both MC are shunned by the ones they most want to be accepted by..oh, & they’re both utterly amazing lol

Anyway, this was a fast-paced adventure from the word Go. The pacing of the story, the world & character building, just EVERYTHING left me stunned at how great this book was done. The author wrote some of the best characters ever. I fell in love w/all of them, even the ones I despised-now that’s talent. Riley was so relatable in so many ways. She was such a great heroine. I loved how the author showed the inner struggle an adopted kid might have w/loving their family more than anything, but at the same time having curiosity, sadness, & love for the family the never got to know. Riley thought she was wronging her family by even entertaining those thoughts-but she wasn’t. It’s only human to want to know those things, & feel those things. What an amazing family she has too, especially her sister Hattie. Their relationship was so great to read. That’s such an amazing big sis. Riley also hit a home run in the best friend department. Emmett is the best. So funny, loyal, brave....& man has he been through a lot. Boris & Areum have my heart though-fascinating & amazing characters.

I loved all the different parts that make this book a whole-The Korean mythology, the different clans(including the cursed clan), the story of the suns & moons, the different creatures we see along the way, the plot, the backstory, the characters, the important themes throughout, & the amazing writing..Wow. There are too many stand out scenes to mention(plus no spoilers lol). But the part w/the grandma ghost, & the inmyeonjo(keeping it vague here lol)were soooooo good. I got emotional in all the best ways.

Big focus on family, friendship, belonging, believing in & being yourself, & more. This may be a fantasy, but all of these characters were so complicated & just REAL, that the book felt very relatable as a whole. Also, I know so many kids will be so happy to see themselves in the heroine of this story like they couldn’t before-like the author herself mentions in the back she never could, & this book is for all those kids. So awesome. Highly recommend. Now I wait a year for book 2, & try not to go crazy waiting lol Of course , a STUNNING cover by the amazing Vivienne To as well!💜
