Against the background of the average everyday high school experience, one smart but kinda awkward teen learns to perceive the real world of light and spirit—and dark demonic power—that everyone else misses. Mariela Stewart transports her readers through the twists and turns of Sienna’s hard-won journey of self-discovery, keeping it real with teenage eagerness and suspicion, naiveté and angst. It’s enough that the plot and characters give you a fantastic and satisfying read, but the Star Rise Series will open young minds to an inner world of light and love where great things do happen to you.

“The Initiation Star Rise” opens doors to worlds beyond imagination, where anything is possible. It transports your spirit and lets you wander through diverse dimensions. Mariela Stewart’s writing is like a painting; she blends words together in such a subtle form to create a beautiful masterpiece. She places the reader in the mysticism of a southwest city, El Paso. Describing places so precise that makes one feel as being there. Be prepared to take a journey where your eyes won’t stop reading and your spirit will travel freely, far beyond words…
I highly recommend this book and cannot wait to read the rest of the saga!!!

I totally love this book! I cannot wait for the rest of the series. I love all the characters Sienna, Seth and Syler and how they uncover their hidden powers! I also love, the love connection between Sienna and Sabian, who are twin flames! I also enjoyed the many references to astroarchaeology and ancient astronaut theories! It has action, mystery, love, and adventure! It truly has it all! just love this whole story. I want more!

Stewart has created a fun and useful adventure – fantastic in its story twists and grounded in its relevance to what is really going on in the world today. The everyday world of a struggling teen is blown wide open by contact with beings from non-ordinary realms who help her awaken to her deeper powers and purpose. I feel a real kinship with Sabrina, Sabian and the rest of the cast characters already and I am eager for the next installments of this mystical thriller. Now that we are initiated and the Star has risen, bring on Volume 2!

I truly enjoyed this book. The story captivated and held me from the get go. It was very hard to put it down once I started. The story is inspiring, entertaining and informative all at the same time. I highly recommend
this book, especially to fans of sci-fi/fantasy. I am looking forward to the next chapter in this series.

I really liked the story. I liked the characters except for the teenage angst that ran hot and cold. A bit unrealistic. Also the story was filled with wonderful information about the alternate look at life and history. But it was dispersed unevenly and tended to break up the story flow and was rushed in in huge chunks. Having said all that, this is a good read.

This first book in the Star Rise series presents a magical journey to the soul! Sienna Sinclaire takes the reader into this mystical realm and begins to find her powers. This journey is also lived by the reader who is also affected the same way than all the characters. I love the action, mystery, romance, adventure that the plot weaves… I have already been pulled into the story and I am awaiting desperately the next installment in the series!
