COVER REVEAL & GIVEAWAY - THE FALLEN STARS - A STAR CHILD NOVEL BY STEPHANIE KEYES


BLURB from Inkspell Publishing


When all is lost, he will have to make the ultimate decision.

Kellen St. James was just your average seventeen-year-old prodigy, until he eighty-sixed the Lord of Faerie and proposed to a Celtic goddess. Now everything in Kellen’s life gets turned upside-down when Calienta, Kellen, and friend, Gabriel Stewart, find themselves on the run from a seriously irritated group of faeries. The worst part? They have zero idea why.

Suddenly, Kellen finds himself stuck in the middle of another prophecy that questions everything about him including where his loyalties lie. Plus, Calienta’s more than a bit different; she’s making choices that he doesn’t understand. And Gabe, his best friend? He’s started doing all sorts of freaky things that make Kellen question who he really is.
Kellen and Calienta will fight to stay together and keep the hidden part of the prophecy from becoming reality.

When the ultimate power is within reach, which side will he choose?

Release Date: 12-April-2013, Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

COVER COMMENTS
I love the colours on the cover as well as the font that the title, authors name etc are in. It gives the book a romantic feel, which as it is a YA romance is great. The Title, Series Title and Author Name looks a little cramped at the bottom. I don't like quotes from people who have read the book on the front cover, it's just a personal "pet hate" of mine. I mean I would have put the book title in the place where the book review quote is, to make more space at the bottom for the Series name and Author name. 
Would the cover make me want to pick the book up from a shelf and learn more about it? Yes I would notice this cover on the shelf and yes I would pick it up to investigate further.
So onto the Blurb, what do I think to that? I am a little confused as what Kellen being eighty-sixed means... so am curious as to what that means. I aren't totally "into" the Fae genre, I have a kind of love/hate thing with this genre. 
So would the blurb make me want to buy the book? To be honest here, it's the cover that attracts me to the book more than the blurb. Would I buy the book? possibly.
