#Review of Sing Down The Stars By L.J. Hatton

When the aliens came, they didn’t attack—they just hung in the sky. After a year of human hysteria, they left and the rains began. Ever since, some girls have been born with unusual abilities. The fifth daughter of Magnus Roma, creator of the extraordinary circus called The Show, Penn was born a Celestine: she can call down the stars. Her newborn cries brought burning hail that killed her twin brother. For sixteen years Penn has hidden her power by assuming the life of her twin, just as her four older sisters (who can manipulate the elements) have hidden from the Wardens’ Commission in plain sight as circus performers.

Then, one explosive night, Penn loses everything. The wardens want to protect Earth from anything alien. Her sisters are taken, and The Show is destroyed. To save her family, Penn must do the unthinkable and use the power she’s been taught to suppress. She’ll travel to the very heart of her world’s darkness and discover the truth about her terrifying gift.

This was an interesting read. One that had me really unsure if I was going to love it or not. Because I was drawn by the blurb...and not the cover. Which is odd for me, because I'm such a cover snob sometimes, but, I was actually really blown away by this book. It held elements of surprise and mind blowing events that at some pages, I was going back a re-reading a scene because it was awesome! I'm seeing that there is really truth behind the don't judge a book by it's cover, because I was greatly surprised with this book and would recommend it all day to anyone willing to listen. But don't just take my word on it. Grab a copy and find out for yourself. You'll be happy that you did.

Thanks for the review. I don't think I would have picked this one up on cover alone either...but the blurb gives me a great idea of the strange and magical power within. That's a really crazy origin story for a super human ability, but I'm more interested in this thought that you can physically call down stars! I think that's a very romantic notion...and toy with it in my own writing, to be honest XD
