As the stars fall book review by duffythewriter

A desperate dog. A scarred girl. A bond nothing can break.

When a young girl suffering with her own tragedy comes across an injured young dog, she can’t resist helping him. Both having braved the worst the world had to throw at them, the pair quickly form an unbreakable bond. They picture their future as an endless stream of adventures filled with love, laughter, and good times.

But life has one last cruel trick to play…

At one moment heart-warming, the next heart-breaking. This is the story of a devoted dog’s roller coaster journey to be the one thing every good dog dreams of being — a best friend. Through a touching tale, As The Stars Fall explores how compassion can make us whole again and friendship can heal even the most broken of hearts.

If you crave a story of love and loss, of compassion and belonging, of friendship that knows no bounds, you need to read As The Stars Fall.

Duffy’s Thoughts on As The Stars Fall

Oh, Dog! I instantly felt a connection with Dog and waves of deep empathy. I am a firm believer that dogs are far too good for us nut job humans anyway. Ask anyone who knows me, and I will drop my groceries to pet a dog and stare at one in a cafe to try and garner a new furry friends attention. I own two cats, who I adore, but cats will never ever give that wag of a tale and instant happiness when you walk in the door after a crap day. My girls just meow because I’m late and they want dinner. However, I digress.

As The Stars Fall is one heck of a read. I don’t want to give away any spoilers. In fact, author Steve N Lee quite rightly asks for spoilers not to be shared. To not take away the magic of reading a tale for the first time and completely losing yourself in a book. I think that’s pretty neat, considering all that’s going on in the world. It’s good to escape for a short while.

So, whilst I can’t tell you too much about the story, I can tell you it will leave you with all the feels. If you’re an empath, there will be tears of love, hope, loss and the never-wavering connection and loyalty between a good doggo and their Alpha.

If you enjoyed Lily & The Octopus, The Lovely Bones, The Littlest Hobo and Red Dog. Then you will want to meet Dog and follow his journey.

Who is author Steve N Lee

Apart from animals and writing, Steve’s passion is travel. He’s visited 58 countries and enjoyed some amazing experiences. Including cage-diving with great white sharks, sparring with a monk at a Shaolin temple, and watching a turtle lay eggs on a moonlit beach. He’s explored Machu Picchu, Pompeii, and the Great Wall of China, yet for all that, he’s a man of simple tastes — give him an egg sandwich and the TV remote control, and he’ll be happy for hours!

He lives in the North of England with his partner, Ania, and two black cats who graciously allow Steve and Ania to stay in their house.
