Thank you so much to The Parliament House for giving me a copy of P.S Malcolm’s Lanterns In the Sky in exchange for an honest review via Netgalley.

When Lucy notices her bestfriend, Valarie, is not her usual self, she does all she can do to cheer her up. Including attending parties. But everything goes down when she’s being haunted for ‘Lanterns’ or stars, and she meets weird guys like Jason, and Andrew. Lucy finds out she is a reincarnation of the Starlight Princess, and she must do everything in her power to make sure she, her friends, and the whole world is safe from those who threaten to overrun Earth with dark magic.

Where do I start? The concept of this novel is actually my cup of tea, and it has so much potential, but I don’t know what happened? It just became stale, and I tried so hard to focus and put all my attention on it. I could barely finish it. 

I find everything cringey, especially the names, like ‘Starlight Princess’. This whole concept reminded me of Sailor Moon but more cringey and forced. I don’t know, it did not just reach out to me and didn’t sit well with me. I think it has to do with the writing and delivery of the concept? The concept is there, and the world-building (though we did not really go in-depth about the Starlight Princess and I was actually confused, I thought it was another planet. Also, we happen to be set in a fictional country in Europe, so there’s that…) but it felt like another highschool clique war thing between nerds and preps. 

I don’t think I liked something about this. I can’t find any, unfortunately. Maybe work on the concept and on delivering it? In the meantime, I would not recommend this to anyone.
