When the fate of the world rests upon you…
Allison Delaney wants to spend her senior year healing from the loss of her father, to leave the shadows of his death and her junior year break-down behind.
A Labor Day beach party seems like a good place to start…but there’s more danger lurking than anyone could imagine. Death is coming to Earth if the pods of infectious creatures aren’t stopped. But only one human can help…
To live or die is no longer a choice.
Eenoki is a protector of life but must have a sentient host to fight the invasion. A teenage girl would not be the best choice, but out of desperation Eenoki invades Allison’s mind and body, granting her unnatural abilities and strengths – and helping her escape certain death when the first wave of pods land.
As destruction rains down on Earth’s population, Allison realizes to save everyone, she must make the ultimate choice: Reject her human side and bond with Eenoki to become the Earth’s Priestess – or be killed along with the rest of humanity.
Fate of the Stars by Arwen Paris is a Young Adult sci-fi book about Allison, and 18-year-old girl, whose mind and body is invaded by Eenoki, a symbiont. It saves her when spaceships land on Earth, bringing with them a war.
I watch her sprint into the ghostly grove, her blonde hair whipping behind her.
She never turns back. Another piece of me, gone forever.
I really liked the protagonist, she’s not like some kind of otherworldly girl when Eenoki invades her; she’s still human, same as always, and she loves those close to her. Even though she’s afraid, she keeps fighting for her best friend, for her mother.
I can’t dwell in the past and fantasize about the impossible. I must let go of those I loved.
She doesn’t want to lose herself in this battle between species and protects the entire humanity from the invaders, though it might cost her highly.
The writing style was good and I enjoyed the story. I could relate to the protagonist, especially when she wanted to protect her mother. I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
