The constellations come to life in this imaginative fantasy adventure debut.
Honorine's life as a maid at the Vidalia mansion is rather dull, dusting treasures from faraway places and daydreaming in front of maps of the world. But everything changes when she catches two brutish sailors ransacking Lord Vidalia's study, and then follows a mysterious girl with wings out into the night....
Suddenly, Honorine is whisked into the middle of a battle between the crew of a spectacular steamship and a band of mythical constellations. The stars in the sky have come to life to defend themselves against those who want to harness their powers. Much to her surprise,Honorineis the crux of it all, the center of an epic clash between magic and science, the old ways and the new. But can this spirited young girl bring both sides of a larger-than-life fight together before they unleash an evil power even older than the stars?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Star Thief by Lindsey Becker I really enjoyed reading this book! The story world is very imaginative and different than anything else I'd read before. I loved the characters, especially Honorine, with her compassion and talent for mechanics. I liked that she protected and valued the people she cared about, even if she didn't trust them.The plot kept me guessing and the unusual story world made for a lot of unexpected surprises. Everything came together for a satisfying ending that still left some room for the story to continue. In our minds if nowhere else.
