Details

Ray's passion for writing comes hand in hand with a passion for animals and the environment which prompted the creation of the Earthlings trilogy. Earthlings is Ray's debut novel with a prequel to follow shortly after the trilogy is complete.

It is Ray's dream to open The Peridot Animal Sanctuary and Wildlife Reserve in England and that dream inspired the Earthlings trilogy to life.

When Ray isn't writing, she is happiest spending time with her children, partner, family and friends or walking with her dogs spending time in nature. Often found star gazing under the moon with a tarot deck in one hand and a strong cuppa in the other.

 

PRAISE FOR EARTHLINGS

 

"Earthlings is a stunning and unputdownable debut from Ray Star" - TBHONEST.CO.UK

"Fantasy fiction that teenagers will love, it's prose reminded me of a ‘Famous Five’ novel brought into the 21st century in a slightly sinister 'Harry Potter style' with a twist of dystopia. An Enid Blyton of the social media age" - THE HECKINGTON POST

"Earthlings is a book with a great heart and a passion to interrogate some of the worst excesses of contemporary times through the lens of magical fantasy" - THE FANTASY HIVE

 

"Earthlings raises interesting questions and difficult issues that we as humanity face everyday. I was utterly immersed into this fantastical world - a brilliant read that captured me and really got me thinking. It grabbed me right from the start and it didn't let go, absolutely brilliant!" - BETTY'S BOOK SHOP

Earthlings - The Beginning

Peridot has lived a sheltered life, never having left the comfort of her home or met another child before. Until the night of her thirteenth birthday, when a strange boy appears at her window, claiming to have escaped captivity from the mainland. Her mother insists that the ways of the world are to remain concealed until her sixteenth birthday, but she unveils why they live in hiding, the mainland isn't safe for their kind - they are born of magick. Not magic from stories and fables, but real magick from the days of old. On her quest to learn the truth, Peridot leaves the island only to finally comprehend why the truth was kept from her. Life on the mainland is unlike anything she could have fathomed possible, humanity is enslaved, and an unlikely dictator is in charge. Peridot finds herself thrown into a world she wasn't prepared for, caught amongst an ongoing battle between those trying to save humanity and the tyrants seeking to keep them enslaved, struggling to command magickal abilities she doesn't fully understand or know how to control. Peridot's abilities may be the helping hand needed to save humanity from an awful way of life, but at what cost?
