Review

Praise for Star Mother

“Readers will find entertainment and hope in this sweeping, mythic tale.” Publishers Weekly

“In this stunning example of amazing worldbuilding, Holmberg (Spellbreaker) features incredible creatures, a love story, and twists no one could see coming. This beautiful novel will be enjoyed by fantasy and romance readers alike.” Library Journal

“Gods and men mingle in this fantasy tale of celestial beings, battling gods, and time travel. Fans of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust (2008) will appreciate the unique characters in this fantasy adventure.” Booklist

Praise for Charlie N. Holmberg

“Holmberg knows just how to please fantasy fans.” Publishers Weekly

“Holmberg is a genius at world building.” Booklist

From the Publisher

It’s a common trope in science fiction and fantasy that the protagonist’s mother is either dead or evil. That’s why the good mothers, like Molly Weasley, Helen Parr, Essun, and Sarah Connor, that do exist in the genre, stand out. I love a good coming-of-age story about a younger woman in fantasy, but as a mom of two, I find myself being ever more drawn to the rarer mother character.

Ceris Wenden is an anomaly in her world simply because she survives what no other mortal has: giving birth to a star after a ritual mating with the Sun God. But what comes next when you thought your life was over? Ceris finds herself displaced in time, with no purpose except any new one she decides to make on her own.

You don’t have to be a mother to relate to Ceris’s journey across the heavens and the Earth to discover herself, new love, and a reason for being. And whatever it is in the universe that drives you and makes you excited to be alive, in this book, you are seen.

—Adrienne Procaccini, Editor
