ARC Review- Behind the Stars (Behind the Stars #1-6) by Leigh Talbert Moore

Title:  Behind the Stars (Behind the Stars #1-6) 
Author:  Leigh Talbert Moore
Publication Date:  December 31st 2014 by Leigh T. Moore 

Plot:  Prentiss Puckett is certain of three things:
-Graduation is two weeks away.
-Summer only gets hotter in south Mississippi.
-She’s getting a job with air-conditioning.

She did not expect to be kidnapped walking to work. 
And she never expected to become a hero.

Red Dawn meets L O S T in this new action-adventure romance from Amazon bestselling author Leigh Talbert Moore.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆


Behind the Stars almost lost me at 30% into the book. It just didn’t catch me with the amount of flashbacks (particularly of Jackson) as it felt quite unnecessary and redundant after awhile.

Luckily though, it did pick up the pace around the 35% mark and from there I was intrigued.

A lot of the plot revolves around….
1) Who are these invaders? Why did they kidnap us?
2) Are they really not from our world? What do they want from us?...our world?
3) What does the future hold us? Are they going to kill us? Who will live? Who will die? And will things ever be the same?

These are the questions that plague Prentiss Puckett as she and her friends are kidnapped and forced to work a secluded camp on the outskirts of her hometown. Determined to regain her freedom, free her fellow kin, and find her longtime love and boyfriend, Jackson… Prentiss develops a plan of escape… ONLY, that’s easier said than done.

When handsome Gallatin enters the picture, Prentiss becomes majorly conflicted as he is one of her captors keeping her locked up in that prison. The more she spends time Gallatin, the more she can’t help but feel more of a pull and attraction for. You’re not supposed to fall in love with the enemy, right? And yet, this is where Prentiss’ loyalty and inner turmoil dwindles.

Will she be able to get to the bottom of everything and find a way to rescue herself and the rest of the people captured?

What about Jackson? Who will Prentiss choose? Him or Gallatin?

And with a human resistance brewing, what will Prentiss do? Who’s side will she choose?
