Gemma – a girl who turns out to have part of a star hidden inside her. She is also a keeper, even though she didn’t know it. Gemma is also a Foreseer.
Alex Avery – a Keeper. Turns out he also harbors a part of the star. He and Gemma seem to be falling for one another.
Aislin – Alex’s sister. She also has wicca magic (turns out it’s black magic). One of the things she can do is use crystals to transport people.
Julian Lucas – Gemma’s father.
Locations: Las Vegas
Main Premise: Gemma had been branded with an evil mark by Stephan. She returns to Alex intending to kill him. But Alex is determined to save her. He hatches a plan to take a potion to die, convinced that Gemma will resist the evil to save him.
How it ended: Alex takes the potion, but Gemma is too late to save him. She does come to only to realize this. Then, in a dream (vision, whatever) she meets her father. Her father tells her that he has the power to travel back in time and change things to make everything all right – to rest time to create a better future for the world – and to save Alex.
Other Important Things to Remember for Later:
All of this is from book 2:
Malefiscus has Fey, Witch, Vampire and Foreseer blood in him. When his brother, Hektor captured with him, they imprisoned him in the portal. The portal was sealed with the blood of three – a keeper who was also a vampire, a keeper who was also a witch and a keeper who was also a faerie. And the power of the fallen star was the final step in the seal. Every witch, faerie and vampire who are descendants of Malefiscus’ first followers, and all the death walkers, will be under Malefiscus’ control if he gets out.
Pixies and Fea often have violet eyes like Gemma.
Draven had the evil mark but Leylan couldn’t/didn’t see it. Leylan had control over his blood lust until Draven made him bite Gemma. Seems that Gemma has managed to break the pull of the bite, but Leylan seems to still struggle with the blood lust.
Alex and Gemma became like blood brothers when they were little, using “Forem” – a word meaning forever – who knows if this is important.
Stephan tells Gemma that she and Alex can never love one another because it will ignite the power and real true love will kill the power and themselves. If they fall in love the star is ruined – Stephan was told so in a vision.
Alex’s sacrifice – or giving her the locket (there is some inconsistency as Stephan mentions the locket but Gemma thinks “Alex’s sacrifice”) at the end of the first book kept Stephan away from Gemma for a time, somehow.
The Queen was stopped from killing Gemma but they don’t know why or how. (I am guessing love – because Gemma was so afraid when she was seeing visions of bad things happening to Alex). Alex thought it might be the pendent.
We don’t know why Stephan put the star in Alex and Gemma. Stephan knows what to do because a Foreseer saw it in a vision – Jocelyn reacts very badly when Gemma asks if her father was the one who saw the vision.
Stephan teases that Gemma’s father was an evil Foreseer too though.
