This book is awesome, but it was very confusing at the beginning. By the fourth chapter, though, it wasn't confusing anymore, and was instead a very interesting, good book.

Starcrossed Fans!

If you liked "Starcrossed" by Elizabeth C. Bunce then keep an eye out for the second book, "Liar's Moon," which comes out in November of this year.

In "Liar's Moon" Digger is back in order to help prove the innocence of her friend Lord Durrel Decath.


Starcrossed is the second novel by historical fantasy author Elizabeth C. Bunce, and the first book in the "Thief Errant" series.

The story stars a learned and streetwise thief, Digger, who, in order to escape the wrath of the kingdom Inquisitor and his policing Greenmen, finds herself and her fate entwined with that of a party of drunken nobles. With the group is Lady Merista, a young girl whom Digger quite suddenly discovers is deeply into something punishable by torture and death -- magic. Digger becomes torn between her developing love for her young friend, the suspicious and dangerous activity of Merista's parents, the blackmailing and vengeful friend of her host, and her mantra: Stay Alive. Don't get caught. Don't get involved.

If you like intrigue, spies, magic, romance, and a sassy heroine, this is a must-read. Bunce not only presents a vivid and fast-paced tale, but also an addictive world, moving characters, and a great tension between people and their rulers. Historically, the story throws us into a sense of the Inquisition and the witch craze in Europe.
