My thoughts:

Daystar: The Days are Numbered posses a unique plot. I was drawn in and hooked. Plenty of action and danger spiced this book to make an enjoyable read. Although my only complaint is the usage of the “word”, which unfortunately docked it from a rating of 5 to 4. Daystar: The Days are Numbered is a worthwhile and intriguing read – one I will definitely read again.
