Jayin Ijaad is in hiding. A witch with powerful abilities, she carves out a life for herself in the slums of Pavaal, a city rotting from the inside out. When an old acquaintance tracks her down, Jayin is dragged back into a world she tried to escape -- and is determined to escape again. Maddix Kell is on the run. After two years in prison for crimes he did not commit, Maddix escapes and seeks out a legendary order of witchhunters who are his only chance to find justice. But all is not as it seems and Maddix soon finds himself on the run from the people he sought as allies. When their paths collide, Jayin and Maddix must put aside their prejudices and forge an uneasy alliance that could crumble at any moment. But if they want to survive in Aestos -- a brutal kingdom where magic and corruption lie hand in hand and enemies lurk around every corner -- they must first survive each other.… (més)

I got this through Owlcrate and struggled with it. I read the first 50 pages or so and then stopped. There wasn’t anything blatantly wrong with this book. However, the writing style wasn’t the easiest to read and I didn’t engage with the characters or the story.

The story alternates between Maddix Kell and Jayin Ijaad. Jayin is a witch who is in hiding. Maddix is a soldier who was taken over by a demon and then wrongfully imprisoned because of the demon’s actions while in his body.

I just had no interest in the story or characters. There wasn’t anything in this story that really hooked me and caught my interest.

I think some of my issue with this book may have to do with how dense and small the type was on each page, it was just physically hard to read. This is another one of those books that I would get through maybe a page or two before finding something else that needed doing...this book just did not grab me.

Overall this book wasn’t for me and I won’t be continuing the series. ( )

There were a lot of bits and pieces to Catching Stars that didn't work for me. The cover and summary present it as an amazing fantasy world with witchcraft and fugitives and I suppose at its barest bones, it contains a witch and a fugitive. Unfortunately, the author didn't take the time to make her world immersive. She also taunted a lot of possible, fascinating plot opportunities - a plague, attempted genocide, an underground rebellion! - but settled on a star-crossed love story. It was the epitome of disappointment.

Overall, I found the writing weak, the characters flat, and the plot unimpressive. I wanted to like this book, because on the outside it flaunts all sorts of things that draw me in as a reader, but it was lazily and predictably written. After the fifth time a chapter ended with the characters losing consciousness, I knew this book and I were never going to hit it off. I pushed through to the end, but it wasn't worth the effort. Not for me.

If you like dialogue-heavy fantasy love stories, you may enjoy Catching Stars, but the rest of us will be left wanting. ( )
