Boone was on leave from the Academy and had traveled to the planet Oasis to be with his family and his best friends, twins Elle and Zander on the occasion of their eighteenth birthday. Boone has been secretly in love with Elle since childhood and he was finally planning on telling her of his true feelings, hoping she would return them. Then tragedy strikes, Zander, fed up with the dark secrets his family has kept from him, steals Boone’s prized star ship and runs away. Zander’s parents’ deepest fears come true when Zander is taken by the evil Circe (a race of powerful female witches). Boone’s guilt at his part in his friend’s misfortune prompts him to runaway as well, vowing to bring Zander home safe to his family, and win back the love and respect of Elle.

Six years have gone by since that dreadful day when both Zander and Boone were lost to Elle. Believing both to be dead, Princess Arielle of Oasis has accepted a marriage proposal from the Prefect’s son, (against her parents’ wishes) and she has come to Senate for the wedding ceremony. Elle’s Circe blood makes her a force to be reckoned with. Sensing with her telepathic powers that both of the men she loves are still alive and in need of her help, Elle plots to rescue them from the dark pits of the brutal Murlaca games. Elle alone must outwit the Circe witches and free her brother and Boone the man she knows she is destined to be with.

Get ready to transport yourself to the intrigue and wonder of Colby Hodge’s imaginative world of Star Shadows. Ms. Hodge continues the saga begun with Stargazer, and Shooting Star with the offspring of the characters from those stories coming into their own. Star Shadows is more a tale of SciFi adventure then a romance, but heats up at the end with a hint of what will be in store for Zander when he goes in search of his lost soul mate, and Boone and Elle finally proclaim their true feelings to each other. A grand galactic journey is ahead for you in reading Star Shadows.
