33383577‘A Starr falls, and a family is found.

On the run from the Organization, Starr and Christian find safety on the Qualla Boundary with their friends, Ben and Coda, but Starr needs answers. She owes her dear dead friends, Sami and Jody, that much. She forms a team of her own to fight the general and his recruits.

Di, a mutual friend and anti-everything is a no-brainer, plus her Taser will come in handy. Frank, Starr’s BFF, will put his life on the line for her. Ben and Coda, not to be outdone by Starr’s friends, also swear their allegiance. Christian’s the only hold out. He knows what the Organization is capable of. He has the beaten body to prove it, but when Starr wants something, she gets it.

Now that the team’s together, everything should be perfect. Trouble is Starr loves Christian but so does Di. And Frank, well, he’s never been very good at hiding his love for Starr. Will his four-year long crush on her threaten the safety of the team?

Life becomes tense on the Qualla Boundary, sparks fly, and the Organization is about to smash in their door.’


Starr Lost is the second book in the Starr Fall series by Kim Briggs. The series is a Young Adult Thriller. I really enjoyed the first book, Starr Fall, so when I was asked by the author to read and review Starr Lost I hopped onto the chance and said yes!

The beginning of Starr Lost starts with a prologue. Which is great since I absolutely enjoyed and appreciate the fact that the prologue of Starr Lost is a quick recap of the events in the last book, Starr Fall.

What’s different about Starr Lost from Starr Fall is that the point of views aren’t just from Starr anymore. There’s a second point of view as well. And while the majority of the view in Starr Lost is from Starr herself, the second view point is from Di. I didn’t know if I would end up liking Di’s point of view at all, but I realized that I actually enjoyed Di’s view on things. Di’s point of view brings the story to another level because we aren’t just given the low-down on everything from Starr. So having Di’s POV is refreshing.

Starr is still Starr; in the sense that Starr hasn’t really changed all that much in character growth. Starr’s very heavy minded about her decisions and once she’s made up her mind, there’s little to no chance at changing it. And Starr still has her almost freakishly accurate sixth sense to her.

While Starr Lost was still on the small side (in iBooks on my phone the total amount of pages is 497) there were quite a few things that happened. Without spoiling anything major… 1. There were a few characters that reconnect(ed) with each other., 2. There is nothing within or surrounding the Organization is as it seems.., and finally, 3. Just like the ending in Starr Fall, Starr Lost ends in a cliffhanger. — Which I don’t particularly mind.

I ended up giving Starr Lost, 2.5 of 5 stars on Goodreads.

Happy Reading!
