A Wish Upon the Stars, by @tjklune @dreamspinners #REVIEW #ULTIMATEINDULGENCE

A Wish Upon the Stars, TJ Klune, Dreamspinner Press
Tales From Verania #4
Nearly a year ago, blinded by grief and betrayal, Sam of Wilds made a desperate decision to follow the Great White into the Dark Woods. Now, he emerges to a world changed.

The City of Lockes is a prison. The King has been locked away in the dungeons. The Kingdom of Verania has fallen, and the Dark wizard Myrin sits on the throne.

But soon after his return, Sam learns of a resistance fighting in his name led by a courageous knight, a defiant prince, a pissed-off unicorn, and a half-giant who wants to smash everything in sight. If he has any hope of defeating the villains who have taken their home, Sam must face the consequences of his choices—and 

the friends he left behind.



This book was everything I was hoping it would be and more! Just the right mix of poignancy, intensity, and hilarity. It was over the top and then some.

We pick up 11 months after Sam left Verania to go to the Dark Woods and train with the Great White and the other dragons. He knew coming back was going to be hard, he just didn't realize how much things were going to change. His family is displaced, the king is in prison, Randall is missing and worst of all.....Lady Tina is second in command. Not to mention everyone is super pissed at him. So obviously things have gone to Hell.

Shenanigans and snark are in abundance, but there are some really touching moments. This is high fantasy at it's best with all of the quirks that I love about this series. Gary is dramatic, Tiggy is lovable, Ryan is still posing and Sam is still deflecting with his words. A great ending to a larger than life series!


RATING: 5 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries. This book was given to us by Dreamspinner.
