Reviewing eARC from the author, Siobhan Davis
Ariana Skyee has been the center of Zane Anders’ world for years. They got together as a couple ten months ago, so Zane finally has the girl of his dreams. Life should be peachy.
But it isn’t.
Haunted by a shared secret that threatens to destroy their relationship and claim their sanity, Zane is on a one-man mission to prevent Ari from falling apart.
Then Commander Skyee drops the biggest bombshell of all, and everything Zane has taken for granted about the future is shattered overnight.
Always and Forever: That’s what Zane has promised Ari.
Keeping that promise is about to become the hardest thing he will ever do.
Special Note from the author:
This Novella is narrated solely from Zane Anders’ point of view, and it depicts the events leading up to Ari’s move to Planet Novo. This is NOT a follow on from where Beyond Reach, Book 2 in the series, left off. This relays events prior to True Calling, Book 1. In order to ensure consistency and maximise reading enjoyment, I recommend that the stories within this series are read in the following sequence:
True Calling – Book 1
Lovestruck – Short Story
Beyond Reach – Book 2
Light of a Thousand Stars – Novella
Destiny Rising – Book 3.
Light of a Thousand Stars by Siobhan Davis is a short novella for the True Calling series, told from Zane’s POV and set prior to the Skyee family leaving for Novo. First of all bravo 👏 Siobhan Davis for making me squall like a baby in this book AND for giving us a back story to Novo all in under 100 pages 😊 This novella truly made me happy!
*Note: If you haven’t read the prior books in this series, there are minor spoilers in this review.
Zane is definitely one of my favorite characters in this series and I’ve been rooting for him since before Ari realized he was real person and not a figment of her dreams. He is caring, head over heels in love, and fully devoted to his family. Despite his heart condition, he is strong and Ari’s rock. I just ❤️ him!!
And Ari in this book….wow!!! What a different girl we see! She’s your typical teenager and I love it. There’s no worry about Novo or the future or any of that. She’s a girl in love and you gotta appreciate that.
The plot of the story revolves around not only their love story but also the move to Novo, why Zane didn’t get to tag along, and my personal favorite this little mystery that has Ari all upset. (Sorry no spoilers there 😉) Honestly if you enjoy the True Calling series, than this novella is an absolute must! It adds so much to Ari’s story and Zane….💔….if Ari doesn’t straighten up in book three I’m gonna have to come through the pages and get her!!!! #TeamZane all the way right here!

Final Conclusion: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Awww. This book looks super sweet and from your review it definitely sounds like it pulled on heart strings. Even though he had a heart condition he didn’t let that stop him and at the end of the day those are the characters you root for. 🙂
It was perfect! It adds so much to the series. If you like young adult dystopian/scifi I highly recommend you check them out 😀
