The Falling Star - Book Tour + Q&A

Today I’m excited to participate in the Bookstagram & Creative Tour for The Falling Star by Imani Josey hosted by MTMC Tours! The Falling Star is the second book in The Blazing Star series & it was released on December 8th, 2020 from Wise Ink.


Seventeen-year-old Alexandria White only wants to go home, a wish that would be easier to pull off if home weren’t thousands of years in the future and halfway across the world.

Since her twin sister, Portia, touched an artifact during their history class, she’s been stuck in ancient Egypt surrounded by the unknown: knife-wielding priestesses, soul-consuming Scorpions, and a destiny so terrifying she fled Egypt’s capital city.

Alex has been hiding in plain sight and putting her academic skills to use as a royal tutor in the Nile Delta, an area on the brink of war. When tensions rise between clashing monarchies, everything Alex left behind—the magic that is her birthright, the danger of the Scorpions—is arriving at her door, as well as a major secret.

She’ll have to decide if she will flee again or take a stand and face her future in the past.

My Opinion

I was really looking forward to reading this sequel. As you know, I loved the first book and, even when Alex was my least favorite character due to all her egoism and attitude, in this book we get to know her a little bit more and that was great.

I have to admit I am still #TeamPortia but the way her intelligence and her gift are described got me intrigued from the start. It is really interesting this character switch on the narrative as well as the timeline keeps moving.

This time we also have a couple of questions answered by the author!

Q&A with the Author Imani Josey

When did you start getting interested in Egyptian history?
I’ve always had an interest! Personally, my mom was into ancient Egypt, and the stars, and that interest passed on to me as well. She gave me a picture of Nefertari when I was young that I keep in my office. My grandfather is also a history, so I come by a love of the ancient world quite honestly.

If you could have a coffee with an Egyptian deity, who would that be?
I would love to have Merneith, who was a queen and regent from the first dynasty. I’m working on a piece about her as well (though I have to get more words down).
