Author @LisetteBrodey releases DESERT STAR – Book 2 in the Desert Series

One of my favorite people and authors, Lisette Brodey, has released Book 2 in her YA paranormal trilogy, The Desert Series called Desert Star. She is one of the most generous supporters of her fellow authors and a pristine writer of multiple genres.

I called her first book in the series, Mystical High “an enlightening and delightful book for all ages.” You can read my 5-star review here.

Book Summary ~ Desert Star

Larsen Davis isn’t afraid to stand up to those who bully him, but in a two-against-one situation at Mystekal High, it’s never easy. When classmate River Dalworth witnesses the abuse and intervenes, the two seniors become good friends. Larsen explains that he’s fighting another battle at home: his own mother, Raylene, bullies him for being gay.

When Larsen meets River’s mother, Arielle, and learns she is overseeing the renovation of the Desert Theater, he shares his dream for a career on stage. Soon, Arielle offers Larsen a job as her assistant, but Raylene is dead set against the idea of her son doing what she considers “gay work.” After Raylene gets a new boyfriend, Reggie, the bad situation at home worsens and Larsen has no choice but to leave.

Now working at the Desert Theater, Larsen feels the unearthly presence of someone in the long-abandoned theater. Meanwhile, as the theater nears completion, a talent show is scheduled for opening night. As it becomes more evident that the theater may have a ghost, it also comes to light that someone may be sabotaging the renovation and the show. Is the ghost real or just the handiwork of someone with a grudge?

Opening night at the Desert Theater sets the stage for a crime, never-imagined reunions, long-awaited explanations, and otherworldly miracles.

    Eden,

    Thank you so very much for featuring DESERT STAR on your blog today!

    Your kind words about me and my work are words I would use to describe you and your work. I absolutely loved STRANGER AT SUNSET and UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY, both which I read recently, and can’t wait to read the rest of your elegant work.

    Your gracious support of so many authors is really special. In other words, you rock!

    • My pleasure Lisette, I’m a fan and always happy to support your work. Like you, I know the challenge of writing in multiple genres, and somedays it feels even schizophrenic and I forget who I am!

      You’ve moved seamlessly from one genre to another, and you have a great voice for the YA paranormal genre. I SO look forward to reading DESERT STAR as Mystical High was such a lovely read.

      You’re welcome on my blog any time,

  2. Hi Eden,
    What a very cool blog!
    What can I say about this very talented woman. I’m a bit of a fan actually 😀

    Lisette’s writing just suits me to a T. Just LOVE her work. Mystical High was fabulous. Fast paced and fabulosa. Twists and turns aplenty with a mammoth ending.

    Desert Star is a standout read. Such quality writing. The BEST characters who you just feel are real. What I love about this series, is the paranormal aspect is actually quite possible in reality. And of course another amazing ending which had the emotions flowing.

    Thanks for showcasing this exceptional woman.
