Rick Riordan presents Graci Kim’s thrilling debut about an adopted
Korean-American girl who discovers her heritage and her magic on a perilous
journey to save her witch clan family.

Graci Kim does such
an amazing job of blending Korean mythology into the modern world, I am now
wondering how I ever lived without knowing all this cool
information.”–New York Times

#1 best-selling author Rick Riordan

Riley Oh can’t wait to see her sister get initiated into the Gom clan, a
powerful lineage of Korean healing witches their family has belonged to for
generations. Her sister, Hattie, will earn her Gi bracelet and finally be able
to cast spells without adult supervision. Although Riley is desperate to follow
in her sister’s footsteps when she herself turns thirteen, she’s a saram–a
person without magic. Riley was adopted, and despite having memorized every
healing spell she’s ever heard, she often feels like the odd one out in her
family and the gifted community.

Then Hattie gets an idea:what if the two of them could cast a spell that would allow Riley to

share
Hattie’s magic? Their sleuthing reveals a promising incantation in the
family’s old spell book, and the sisters decide to perform it at Hattie’s
initiation ceremony. If it works, no one will ever treat Riley as an outsider
again. It’s a perfect plan!

Until it isn’t. When the
sisters attempt to violate the laws of the Godrealm, Hattie’s life ends up
hanging in the balance, and to save her Riley has to fulfill an impossible
task: find the last fallen star. But what even is the star,
and how can she find it?

As Riley embarks on her
search, she finds herself meeting fantastic creatures and collaborating with
her worst enemies. And when she uncovers secrets that challenge everything she
has been taught to believe, Riley must decide what it means to be a witch, what
it means to be family, and what it really means to belong.

Praise for The Last
Fallen Star

The Last Fallen Star folds Korean culture as
well as diaspora feelings into a magical adventure. The way Graci Kim takes
traditions and lore and incorporates them into an exciting contemporary fantasy
setting makes my heart soar as a Korean reader. This fantastical story is
filled with heart and humor. Readers who love magical adventures, complex
family relationships, and sisterhood—not to mention food!—should pick up THE
LAST FALLEN STAR immediately!”—


Kat Cho, internationally
best-selling author of

Vicious Spirits

“Korean mythology gets a modern twist in this
rollicking adventure by debut author Graci Kim. From entering a secret temple
by way of the fried chicken counter at H-Mart to summoning a goddess at the
Santa Monica Pier, every chapter of this novel delights and surprises. At times
laugh-out-loud hilarious, at times heartwarming and poignant,

The Last
Fallen Star

will capture the imaginations of readers for years to come!”—Axie
Oh

, author of Rebel Seoul and Rogue Heart

“Reading The Last Fallen Star is like taking a
course in Korean mythology taught by your favorite teacher ever—while riding a
gigantic roller coaster beneath a sky filled with shooting stars! I loved
following Riley’s thrilling adventures, and pass the bulgogi tacos, please.”—

Linda

, Newbery Medalist for A Single Shard

“Like a true magician, Graci Kim intertwines Korean
mythology with an all-too-relatable sister story in her heart-stopping
adventure that’s sure to capture the heart of anyone who’s ever felt like an
outsider. You can’t help but root for plucky Riley Oh as she engages on a quest
to find belonging and acceptance.” —

“I wish I could go back in time and hand this
book to young Ellen. I would have loved it so much, because this was what I was
missing in my life. Thank you, Graci, for writing it!”—

Ellen Oh,
author of

The Dragon Egg Princess and the Spirit Hunters series

The Last Fallen Star by Graci Kim
absolutely shines. Riley Oh’s positive voice is infectious and will have
readers wanting to follow her adventures long after the last page is
turned.” —

Brujas series

My Review:

I really loved The Last Fallen Star. The book has so many awesome Korea references and culture going on. I learn a lot of new mythology I never knew before. This was a very awesome read and educational also. The world building is so magical.

I liked the sister bond between Hattie and Riley. They may not be related by blood, but still have each other back. Hattie is willing to risk he own life to make Riley happy.

Riley is like an outcast with the witches and being adopted. That dose not stop her family still loving her. All she ever wanted to do was feel belong and have magic. Hattie has a plan to make her wish come true with the help of their best friend, Emmitt.

This book deals with family hidden secrets, bonds with sisters and a family coming together for support. Very upbeat read to enjoy for any age. This book is full of fun surprises and magical creatures to fall in love with also. I was so happy to be a part of this blog tour and experience such a thrill ride. So looking forward to seeing what happens next in book two.

Happy Reading!!!
