The Star Dwellers Blurb
The Star Dwellers is the sequel to The Moon Dwellers and is book 2 in The Dwellers Saga, a YA dystopian series by David Estes.
After rescuing her father and younger sister, Adele is forced to leave her family and Tristan behind to find her mother in the cruel and dangerous realm of the star dwellers.
Amidst blossoming feelings for Adele, Tristan must cast his feelings aside and let her find her own way amongst the star dwellers, while he accompanies Adele’s father to meet with the leaders of the moon dwellers and decide the fate of the Tri-Realms.
Will Adele be able to rescue her mother and make it back to the Moon Realm before the President and the sun dweller soldiers destroy her family?
Can Tristan convince the moon dweller puppets of the error of their ways?
Was Adele’s lost kiss with Tristan her one and only chance at love?
In her world there’s only one rule: Someone must die.

Mr. David- this is my surprise just for you 🙂 Now you know where to go for more goodies!! And since I’m not posting my review, I’ve decided to give you my own personal soundtrack to this series… I am going to keep it more to the songs that reference the first book, since if I give you a song for a moment in book two, it may be spoilery 🙂 LOL again with my spoiler policy, huh! I knew I needed just a little something special for this post 🙂
This is my theme song for the book. Adele will NOT give up, and she will not be turned into sheep just to follow.
This is how I think Adele feels about the world she lives in… it’s a dark place, especially at the beginning when her family is taken and she is jailed…
If things happened in real life, would you think about your past and wish for it, or would you make the best of what you have?
And just when you think you’ll give up…
And who wants to live forever?
This is Adele’s song to her dad… she will not give up until she finds him.
This is Tristan’s song for Adele
This is Adele’s song for Tristan
Everyone needs a little F+tM 🙂
Since Adele is so stubborn, I do believe this should be her theme song 🙂
When the world is falling apart, I’ll meet you at the bottom 🙂
We all know we needed a little Hunger Games reference lol
You are given one life, and it’s the only one you’ve got
And at the end, when things are changing yet again, this is for Adele and Tristan
So… how do you feel about my music choices? Got any opinions… well hold on to them for just one more moment….
David Estes was born in El Paso, Texas but moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania when he was very young. He grew up in Pittsburgh and then went to Penn State for college. Eventually he moved to Sydney, Australia where he met his wife and soul mate, Adele, who he’s now been happily married to for two years.
A reader all his life, David began writing novels for the children’s and YA markets in 2010, and has completed 10 novels, 8 of which have been published. The Star Dwellers will be his 8th published novel. In June of 2012, David became a fulltime writer and is now travelling the world with his wife while he writes books, and she writes and takes photographs.
David gleans inspiration from all sorts of crazy places, like watching random people do entertaining things, dreams (which he jots copious notes about immediately after waking up), and even from thin air sometimes! Recently he’s been inspired by some of his favorite authors, like Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, and Maggie Stiefvater.
David’s a writer with OCD, a love of dancing and singing (but only when no one is looking or listening), a mad-skilled ping-pong player, an obsessive Goodreads group member, and prefers writing at the swimming pool to writing at a table. He loves responding to e-mails, Facebook messages, Tweets, blog comments, and Goodreads comments from his readers, all of whom he considers to be his friends.
The Moon Dwellers is now available everywhere ebooks are sold or in print via Amazon.com (links below). Also, David pledged when he started writing to always respond to his readers, and he loves getting comments and questions, so please contact him using one of his favorite social networking sites below. As always, happy reading!!
