HASH(0x9a094ab0) out of 5 stars Music for the mind Oct. 20 2015
By H.McBurr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read the complete set of Starlight books singularly, and found them fascinating. Rather dark, but no so much so that they were depressing, but rather intriguing. The characters and their trials felt real and believable. Each book ended on a cliffhanger, and I was eager for the next book. Now, here they are, all together at last. These stories are a treat. Enjoy them...sometimes with a giggle, other times, with a kleenex at the ready.

HASH(0x996d51b0) out of 5 stars A Rock Star Oct. 20 2015
By Mark Mattison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Lisa Orchard is a rock star of a writer. And I mean that in more than one way -- her prose is best when she's describing the heights to which Lark Singer and her band ascend when they lose themselves in their music. This is a fast-paced, gritty story about young people pursuing their dreams while battling their own demons. Emotional and exhilarating, this trilogy will leave you gasping for more.

HASH(0x9be9a684) out of 5 stars Rock Star Material! Dec 27 2015
By Anniek Snowroses - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Lark Singer has only got one dream. She wants to be and will be a famous rock star. Lark has a band named Starlight together with Bean and Steve. They have found their big ticket out of the little town they live in. The only thing they have to do is win The American Singer contest. It turns out that even though all the band members want to win just as badly as Lark does, not all of them have a clear mind or conscience.

I loved Lark. She is a young girl with a good head on her shoulders. She lives alone with her mother and has no idea who her father is. Her mother only finds confidence when in a relationship. This is so hard on her. Lark wants a better life for herself, but she is never patronizing where she comes from. She is really a good girl who wants to achieve more than the odds are giving her. In real life she would be a very good role model for young girls.

Lisa Orchard provides lots of twists and turns in her story. There were times when I knew more or less what was coming, but I was so hoping that I was wrong. This story has some dark sides and the writing is great. I loved the fact that the characters were all thought out very well. This completed it for me.

The message I got from Lark is that no matter what curve balls life is throwing at you, keep your eyes on the prize. Stay focused and stay true to what you believe in. You can achieve anything you set your mind to.

HASH(0x9bca4978) out of 5 stars A Compelling Read About a Teen Musician March 14 2016
By MichelleLP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Gideon Lee is about Lark, an antagonistic 17 year high school girl with a huge chip on her shoulder. She is defined by her love for music and her minefield relationship with her mother, whom she refers to by name. Lark’s biggest problem with her mother seems to stem from the fact that she won’t reveal the identity of Lark’s father.

Lark is not very likable in this first installment. She resents the most popular girl in school simply, because she is pretty and doesn’t have the “flaws” that Lark believes herself to have. She views her mother as weak and gives her zero respect, and actually goes out of her way to make things for her mom and then resents it when that results in consequences ( which she simply ignores ). The story even opens with her deliberately provoking her history teacher with a questionable essay.

Lark’s entire world centers around music. She and her best friend Bean are in a band together and working hard toward a competition that will take the winner to New York and a spot on nationally televised competition show.

Honestly I kept waiting for the story to become engaging and get me past my huge dislike of Lark, who honestly needs some serious discipline, then the story just ended, seemingly in mid paragraph. It was at that point that I realized the story had quietly hooked me and pulled me into this world and I really needed to read on.

-------------

Lark Singer, is much better than the first book. This story picks up hours after the previous one ends and once again revolves around the band competition and Lark’s quest to learn the identity of her father. The twist in this story is that Lark’s mother is convinced that Bean is stealing from them and she fears it is to support a drug habit. Lark has a new found, maybe not respect, but rather a regard for her mother. She knows her mother is probably right, but being a typical teen and the years of Bean being her closest friend has her wanting to believe his vague excuses.

The characters are so much more filled in and show real growth. Lark is imminently more likable in this volume and feels more like an angsty teen rather than a deliberate pain in the behind. Her mom, with her avoidance behavior was as much of the problem in their relationship as Lark. Yet, in this story she seems to be trying for a more traditional maternal approach and it is doing both of them wonders. I am thinking that Bean is going to be a problem in the not too far future.

I suppose that it is a good thing that Lark finds out who her dad is, but I can’t help but wonder if her mother was right in keeping him a secret. Once again this story ended abruptly, but now that there is precedence it doesn’t seem as stark.

-------------------
The Starlight Chronicles just keep getting better. With the competition right around the corner, Lark and her band are in top form. The dark spot is that Lark’s grade school nemesis is also competing and is doing what he can to get into her head, or is that really his angle? Since the talk about her father, Lark and her mom have a new relationship. In fact everything seems to have a positive spin, until tragedy strikes leaving Lark to try to pick up the pieces.
It was great to Stevie fleshed out a bit. He was seeming a bit like a cardboard cutout, just there to be a third member of the band and turned into an integral part of the story. The drama with Lark’s dad is far from over and the loose threads of Lark’s association with Dwayne still need to be reeled in. All the characters are again more developed, more real, than previously and the story is better for it. I did feel that Bean’s story line was a abruptly dealt with. There was so much potential there. It does make it seem that I may have been right about my feeling back in the book 1 about how important Dwayne is going to become.

This third installment is well written, with emotion and a heart, and with some interesting twists to keep you coming back for what has to be a fourth installment.?.

I received a copy of these books in exchange for an honest review
