Book Appeal: The Star by Javi Araguz and Isabel Hierro

La Estrella (The Star)
by Javi Araguz and Isabel Hierro
-Dystopia, YA

The boy’s eyes glittered so strongly, presaging an imminent rupture of The Quietude.

Lan was perfectly aware of the prohibition of touching a Star Walker, but right now there was no turning back as their fates had inevitably been sealed off.

Centuries ago a catastrophe turned Linde into a hostile place; since then, the survivors have learned to live in isolation within the boundaries of the Safe Limits. But, the planet is constantly subjected to a change in shape and people are lost, never return.

After a violent planetary transformation, Lan, a courageous girl from Salvia clan, wakes up in the middle of the desert, only to be rescued by her worst enemy.

A young man marked by a curse.

A village hiding the biggest secret ever to be kept.

A love as dangerous as it is impossible.

A world whose surface is forever undergoing changes… when getting lost is the equivalent of death.
