Review: And All the Stars




 My Review: 5 Stars
Another outstanding book from this author!  This book never lets up until the last page!  I love that its a stand alone.  Although I know I want the story to go on forever. Its nice to not have to wait a year or so to find out what happens.  This book had a nice ending that tied up all the loose ends.

Book Description

September 30, 2012
Come for the apocalypse.
Stay for cupcakes.
Die for love.

Madeleine Cost is working to become the youngest person ever to win the Archibald Prize for portraiture. Her elusive cousin Tyler is the perfect subject: androgynous, beautiful, and famous. All she needs to do is pin him down for the sittings.

None of her plans factored in the Spires: featureless, impossible, spearing into the hearts of cities across the world - and spraying clouds of sparkling dust into the wind.

Is it an alien invasion? Germ warfare? They are questions everyone on Earth would like answered, but Madeleine has a more immediate problem. At Ground Zero of the Sydney Spire, beneath the collapsed ruin of St James Station, she must make it to the surface before she can hope to find out if the world is ending.
