The final book in the Star Shards Trilogy brings five super-powered teenagers up against a foe that can only be defeated if the Star Shards can overcome|
the obstacles--including death--that separate them.
Dillon, Winston, and Lourdes survived the disaster that killed their companions Michael and Tory. As Winston struggles to locate Dillon, now a prisoner, Lourdes succumbs first to her personal demons and then to the influence of the soul-eating Vectors, powerful beings intent on conquering Earth. To fight them, Dillon and Winston must accomplish the impossible: retrieve Michael, Tory, and the long-lost Deanna from death and win back the soul of Lourdes.
The book is at its best when focused on the thorny philosophical issues that the characters must confront--responsibility, connection, and forgiveness. At other times, particularly when the Star Shards approach their final confrontation, the story feels rushed. However, Shattered Sky is a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.

It began innocently enough: six children conceived at the exact moment that the star Mentaras-H went supernova.
The explosion transformed their souls into living star fragments. It also conferred upon each of them a unique but mysterious power -a power that until they learned its secret masqueraded as a warping disfigurement. For some, it was physical. For others, it was emotional. But for ALL six it meant one thing: their lives would never be the same.
In time they unlocked the secret of their power. Their gifts brought them incredible riches and attention. Once despised for their deformities, they would come to be worshiped-and feared-as gods. But with unlimited power would come the temptation to abuse it and-in a desperate struggle for supremacy-the risk of turning against one another like hungry wolves.
But only now will the true cost of their gifts be revealed.
A new and terrifying force has been loosed in the universe. It infects an alien planet like a rampaging virus. When the inhabitants of the doomed planet are forced to flee, they must conquer and colonize a new planet.
Their choice: Earth.
Only one power exists that could conceivably prevent the extermination of the human race: the Star Shards. But only if the six put aside their titanic egos and join forces.
Welcome to Judgment Day.
