The Girl with Stars in Her Eyes JustRead Blog Tour 

Welcome to the Blog Tour for The Girl with Stars in Her Eyes by Dawn Ford, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

The Girl with Stars in Her Eyes

Title: The Girl with Stars in Her Eyes
Series: Firebird Series #1
Author: Dawn Ford
Publisher: Expanse Books
Release Date: April 12, 2022
Genre: YA Christian Fantasy

Eighteen-year-old servant girl Tambrynn is haunted by more than her unusual silver hair and the star-shaped pupils in her eyes. Her uncontrollable ability to call objects leads the wolves who savagely murdered her mother right to her door. 

When she’s fired and outcast during a snowstorm, her carriage wrecks and she’s forced to find refuge in an abandoned cottage. There, her life is upended when the magpie who’s stalked her for ten years transforms into a man, Lucas. He’s her Watcher and they’re from a different kingdom. His job is to keep her safe from her father, an evil mage, who wants to steal her abilities, turn her into one of his undead beasts, and become immortal himself. 

Can they make it to the magical passageway and get to their home kingdom in time for Tambrynn to thwart her father’s malicious plans? Or will Tambrynn’s unique magic doom them all?

Young Adult Christian Fantasy is not a genre that truly interests me. I have been expanding my interest a bit, and recently read The Girl with Stars in her Eyes by Dawn Ford, which is YA Christian Fantasy. 

Tambrynn is an 18yr old who is very unique with unusual silver hair and the star-shaped pupils in her eyes. She also has Magic abilities and can call the wolves to her door. She has to take refuge in an abandoned cottage when she is fired and then her Carriage gets into a wreck during a Snowstorm. There in the Cottage, her life takes on some changes. She is shocked when the magpie turns into a man named Lucas. Lucas is there to protect her from her Father. Tambrynn's Father wants to take her Magically Abilities and become immortal himself. Lucas wants to do everything he can to get Tambrynn away from her Father. Will they succeed in getting to safety? Will Tambrynn's ablities prevent them from getting to safety? 

I will admit that it took me a couple chapters to really understand the storyline. I think that is because I don't normally read this genre. I LOVE how Strong Tambrynn is and even though she has had trust issues with so many over the years, she has always trusted the Magpie. Lucas(former Magpie) knows Tambrynn has been wanting freedom and to discover who she is and he is very intent on leading her to freedom from her Father. I really enjoyed this book and I think anyone who LOVES Christian Fantasy will enjoy it also. This is Book 1 in the FireBird Series and I am interested in reading the series now. GOOD BOOK!
