Amelia Gareth's brother is a witch and the only way to save her family from the taint in his blood is to become a professed nun at Cathedral Reims in the snowy city of
Malva. However, in order to become professed, she must endure trials that all nuns must face.
Surviving these trials is not easy, especially for Amelia, who is being stalked by shadowy
beings only she can see. They're searching for people they can physically touch, because only
those they can touch can see them. Amelia soon learns why she is being stalked when she
accidentally harms her best friend with fire during the third trial. Fire is a witch's signature. The
shadows are after witches.
Now Amelia must decide what to do: should she continue on her path to profession knowing
there is no redemption, or should she give up on her dream and turn away from Cathedral
Reims in order to stop the shadows who plan to destroy everything she loves?
Excerpt from When Stars Die by Amber Skye Forbes:
"Yet, even when stars die, they leave a lasting impact through their light, their diamond brilliance
as they scatter their material to form new stars. When people die, they leave the same impact
with the footprints they leave on people’s hearts. Even the ones who feel insignificant go out,
leaving behind dust that can nourish the world anew."
