#Review of The Shadow Behind the Stars by Rebecca Hahn

A girl’s dark destiny could cause the unraveling of the world in this spellbinding novel from the author of A Creature of Moonlight, which Kirkus Reviews called “cumulatively stunning” in a starred review.

Heed this warning, mortal: stay far away from the three sister Fates. For if they come to love you, they might bring about the end of the world…

Chloe is the youngest. Hers are the fingers that choose the wool, that shape the thread, that begin it. The sun smiles upon her. Men love her without knowing who she is. She has lived forever and will live forever more. She and her sisters have been on their isolated Greek island for centuries, longer than any mortal can remember. They spin, measure, and slice the countless golden threads of human life. They are the three Fates, and they have stayed separate for good reason: it is dangerous for them to become involved with the humans whose lives they shape.

So when a beautiful girl named Aglaia shows up on their doorstep, Chloe tries to make sure her sisters don’t become attached. But in seeking to protect them, Chloe discovers the dark power of Aglaia’s destiny. As her path unwinds, the three Fates find themselves pulled inextricably along—toward mortal pain, and mortal love, and a fate that could unravel the world.
 About the Author

Rebecca Hahn grew up in Iowa, attended college in Minnesota, and soon afterward moved to New York City, where she worked in book publishing and wrote her first novel, A Creature of Moonlight, on the side. Her fate has since led her to Minneapolis; she misses the ocean but watches stars shine bright. Visit her at RebeccaHahnBooks.com.


So this is just one of those books that fell so flat that I really wonder how it was published.  Now I know that might sound harsh.  But listen. This story has no story.  It starts out with one of the three fates talking about this girl who shows up and how she just ruined everything.  Like EVERYTHING end of the world EVERYTHING!  And well that was fine! 

But then that is all this story is.  There was no conflict other than this girl griping about this other girl.  I mean where is the story?
