Star Song, by Georgia Rains
This was an advanced reader copy and the review originally appeared on Reedsy.com.discovery
Katya is stuck at an in-between job at the U.S. Embassy in Central Asia, seemingly waiting for her life to start. Hoping for a little fun in the meantime, she has no idea of the rollercoaster ride her career and love life are about to embark on when she is thrown into the entertainment industry as an interpreter for a few rock stars. It's hard not to get caught up in the excitement of all the talent, beauty, and fame that is suddenly surrounding her.
This was a truly unique storyline that kept me engaged from start to finish. I really enjoyed the mixture of cultures that were woven so thoroughly throughout the book and the fact that this wasn’t a predictable chain of events. There were layers and layers to the plot and peeling them away gave the book a steady, enjoyable pace.
I felt that the concept, along with the characters (not your typical rockstar) didn’t remind me of anything else I’ve read recently. There was a nice balance between the modern entertainment industry and this traditional star-crossed lover situation. I also really appreciated the small detail that the book is split into tracks, which reinforces the musical elements of the book and helped tie those themes together.
A lot was happening in the wings of the story, and there are a lot of characters, but the author did a great job balancing the subplots and the character development for an easy read. Adam was an interesting character with plenty of flaws, which I’m glad were acknowledged and not skimmed over. Katya really showed her strength by pushing against those flaws and remaining true to herself. A few of the descriptions of Adam's beauty and his performances could have been trimmed back, but the author truly painted a clear picture.
This book is perfect for young adult readers and adult readers who love music and romance.
