Book Review: Lanterns in the Sky

Lanterns in the Sky (The Starlight Chronicles Book 1)

P.S. Malcolm – March 5, 2019

(Goodreads) (Amazon)


Everything was normal for Lucy Maisfer until the day a star fell from the sky and knocked her out. Upon waking, she comes face-to-face with Jason Woods, who also happens to be the mysterious new guy in her best friend, Valarie’s, life. 

Then the strange dreams begin, and she learns about the Starlight Princess— who must not under any circumstance be reawakened. Driven to uncover the meaning of it, she finds herself caught up in a strange twist of events that eventually lead to bigger danger than she ever anticipated. Before long, Lucy is forced to make a choice between saving the world, or saving her best friend; only to discover that Valarie cannot be saved… that she has an even darker secret, and that her supposed star-crossed romance with Jason might not be so destined after all…

My Impression:

This book is masterfully written. The prose is cinematic – you can see it playing out in your head and honestly this is just begging to be made into a movie. I’m astounded by Malcolm’s imagery and the level of detail and thought that went into every scene. The book is full of twists and original ideas that I haven’t seen elsewhere. I’m eagerly awaiting the next book!


This book (series) is a must read for those who love magic, royalty, and surprises while they’re reading. There’s a budding romance too, but it’s definitely taken a back seat to the action–there’s no time for that with everything that’s going on in this book! If you love Princesses who are strong enough to save themselves, you have GOT to read this book.
