And So It Begins. . . The letter A for Astra

My A to Z Challenge contains names, places and things that are found in a series of books called The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. If you haven't read these books, which I recommend, please be aware there will be spoilers.

A is for . . .

It's Latin for
To The Stars Through Hardships

Somewhere in time on a beach, stood a man looking up at the sky at what he thought was a shooting star, and it was headed on a collision course straight for him. He saw the impact of it buried in the sand not twelve feet away. He approached cautiously and proceeded to dig it out, but it burnt his hand. It resembled a rock so he thought nothing more of it and turned to go for a swim, but the scent of a woman wafted in the breeze from the 'thing,' that made his nostrils flare and the beast within growled. He waited for an infinity š¯›‘ just to find her.
That was my feeble attempt at the prologue from High Voltage (Fever #10) ~My Review

If you have read High Voltage, then you know what this brief prologue called Stardust is all about and what it is referring to. I think this book is brilliant in all its glory. Thank you, Karen Marie Moning!

  3. I am definately going to put those books on my to read list! they sound interesting. Thank you for stopping by! I am now following you

  4. Jackie,

    I'm not familiar with the book but appreciated reading the tidbit. I'm not a reader of literature much, never have been really but more so in my early years than now for sure. However, breezing through the sample that you presented is just about my style with not too much to overwhelm my toddler mind. Yeah, I tend to get distracted easily. lol Oh well, here's to another year of A2Zing. Have fun with it & thanks for visiting! ;)


Thanks for reading my blog!
