Blurb (from Goodreads0:
Fifteen-year-old Michelle saves the world on a daily basis…with her trusty video game controller, of course! Naturally, she jumps at the chance to play an experimental virtual reality game.

The beautiful fantasy world of Starrs? Check. The power to mold matter? Check. No reset button? Wait, she didn’t sign up for this!

Turns out Starrs is really real, and to make matters worse, Michelle’s interference awakens the Cycle of the Six Moons, a series of devastating trials that will devour the universe.

Fighting the apocalypse was way easier when danger stayed on the other side of the screen, but Michelle finds a secret weapon in her new-found powers. She uses them to rescue the crown prince of a powerful magic kingdom from their sworn enemies, a technologically-advanced cult that strives to eradicate magical blood.

Michelle starts to fall for Prince Jayse, the only one who believes Michelle to be a savior rather than a curse. But not even video games could prepare her for what the cult has in store for them…

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Starriest Summer (The Cycle of the Six Moons, #1) “I’m in a video game!”

This was a YA fantasy story about a girl sucked into another world.

Michelle was an okay character but she was a bit too laid back for me. She got sucked into another world, had no way home, and was stuck there for the unforeseeable future, and she didn’t even seem to care! I would have been freaking out, or at the very least be worried about how I was going to get back to Earth, but she didn’t seem all that bothered at all.

The storyline in this was about Michelle’s brother sending her to another world, which she initially thought was actually a video game. We got lots of adventures as Michelle was thought to be a goddess and went about completing missions in this new world, but the book felt very long to me, and the story dragged because of it.

The ending to this was okay, although I wouldn’t personally have called it a happy ending. Michelle would probably disagree with me though, ha ha.

6 out of 10


  1. This one sounds a little too cutesy for me (love the cover though) but like one that I'd probably give a try anyways just to see if it'd surprise me.

  2. A wonderfully written imaginative book that brings you on a adventure that you will not want to put down and continue to the end of the last of the book and the ones to follow in this wild, amazing, imaginative, entertaining and fun ride.

  3. Sounds interesting but its hard to relate to a character who doesn't care about being thrown into another world... still, may give this one a go....
