The main story in The Star Child is undoubtedly the prophecy and how it impacts Kellen and Calienta. However, the parallel storyline is the romance between the pair.
Kellen St. James has zero dating history. Zilch. Nada. This is mostly because he’s a prodigy who moved ahead in school early. Kellen always ended up being several years behind his classmates. Who wants to date jailbait, right? That’s how it always worked out for Kellen.
When Kellen first meets Calienta, at the age of six, he wanted nothing more than to be her friend. When he met her again at the age of eighteen, he thought she was an insane psychotic, come to murder him and hide the body.
Calienta, the star child, has known about the prophecy that ties her to Kellen her entire life. However, she would have cared for Kellen whether the prophecy existed or not. As a goddess, she was able to see what kind of man he grew into. She witnessed his kindness and caring, as well as the loss that he suffered in a loveless life.
When Calienta first meets Kellen as the man he’s become, she thinks of him as an annoying inquisitor.
What makes Kellen and Calienta work as a couple? They compliment each other. Calienta brings out the softer side in Kellen. For Kellen, who is so unwilling to trust those around him, Calienta convinces him to take a chance and believe. He guides her and takes care of her, but he encourages her to be her own person and he takes pride in watching her flourish. Kellen is all about girl power!

About the Book:
The world is about to be cloaked in darkness.
Only one can stop the night.
Kellen St. James has spent his entire life being overlooked as an unwanted, ordinary, slightly geeky kid. That is until a beautiful girl, one who has haunted his dreams for the past eleven years of his life, shows up spinning
tales of a prophecy. Not just any old prophecy either, but one in which Kellen plays a key role.
Suddenly, Kellen finds himself on the run through a Celtic underworld of faeries and demons, angels and gods, not to mention a really ticked off pack of hellhounds, all in order to save the world from darkness. But will they make it in time?
