Book Description - Stars In Her Eyes

Burn hot and cold.
Read minds.
Disappear at will.
Dream your own death.
Welcome to Sparkstone University, where some students are more gifted than others.

When Ingrid learns she’s been accepted at the hyper-secretive Sparkstone University, she is sceptical. It’s an honour to attend, apparently, and yet barely anyone has ever heard of the place.

And everyone seems a little too happy that she’s there: especially when she meets Sunni and her group of friends. They seem to already know Ingrid. As if she was expected. Expected to save Earth from an imminent alien invasion. Like she has superpowers or something.

As if magic and mutations exist. As if aliens are really planning to attack.

That just sounds ridiculous. There’s no such thing.

Read what they're saying about Stars In Her Eyes on Goodreads

I highly recommend the book and other books by Clare C. Marshall. I love the way she writes and can create such amazing action and adventure while also being wonderfully descriptive.

I really liked Ingrid's story: it's wild, intense, and keeps readers on their toes. The superpowers Clare came up with were exciting to learn about, and it all reminded me a lot of X-Men (which I love!). If [you're] a sci-fi or fantasy lover, you will surely enjoy this tale.

I read this book in 2 days and anyone who knows me will know that I am horrible at reading books quickly, yet this book was so compelling! Seriously just read it!

Did you read Stars in Her Eyes and enjoy it?
