Tycho of Rillisk has been a lot of things: son and brother, stablehand, prisoner, soldier and friend to the king. Now, four years after Grey took the throne of Emberfall, Tycho has taken on a new role: courier and spy. As the only person the king can trust, Tycho carries secret messages back and forth between the kingdoms of Emberfall and Syhl Shallow.
But even though the war is over, peace still seems far away. A dangerous anti-magical faction is rising, and when Tycho discovers a plot to assassinate Grey and Queen Lia Mara, ruler of Syhl Shallow, he must fight for everything he believes in.
Nothing here is as it seems, and after a devastating betrayal, it becomes clear that the danger is only just beginning …

Tycho who was just a 15 year old guy in the original series is now 19 years and is the King's courier. So he get to travel between Shyl Shallow and Emberfall. He developed so much and his character arc is just 💖. I added Tycho to the list of fictional characters I wanna adopt.
Along with him, we get two more characters' POV. Jax, a blacksmith and Callyn, a baker. Both of them are best friends living in a village. They both dislike magic. I liked how Callyn always put her sister Nora first and wanted to protect her at any cost. She herself is young but she is one strong character. Jax lost his leg early in an accident. Loved seeing him becoming a person who takes things on hand and practice to be perfect.
I loved how Rhen and Tycho's relationship turned out.
I didn't like the way Grey treated Tycho. I felt like he treated the way Rhen treated Grey in book 2 of AHSFAB. Not fair!
The story revolves around how people fear something they can't understand which is magic in this case. There are truthbringers who wanted to harm Grey. How Tycho protects his King and find love along the way is what Forging silver into stars is all about.
Even though this book is 500+ pages, I couldn't put it down after the premise and character introductions were set up. I can't wait to read what happens next! Highly recommend this book for fans of fantasy and cursebreakers.

I loved the diverse cast of characters and their interactions. While the main characters of the original trilogy still have a very large part to play in this series, the protagonists are now Tycho (the King's Courier), Callyn (a baker), and Jax (a blacksmith). This is a story of friendship, romance, betrayal, and courage. The romance was swoon-worthy <3
If you loved the Cursebreakers Trilogy, you will love this new trilogy. Without a doubt: five out of five stars.
If you’ve read the Cursebreakers series (kicking off with Rhen and Harper in A Curse so Dark and Lonely), you’ll have already met so many of the characters in this story (but its a separate series, you don’t have to read Cursebreakers first… you just SHOULD okay?) Picking up this book and going back to Emberfall and Shyl Shallow was like cozying up in your fave jumper by the fire.
So sweet baby Tycho is our main man in this book and he’s not such a sweet baby anymore but we still love him (obviously), and swoon HARD for him.
Also swoon worthy - Blacksmith Jax. Poor boy has had it rough. He’s broody and sad and absolute utter perfection (A+ charmer this one).
Our third POV character is Callyn and like all Brigid’s leading women, she’s strong and feisty and we love her too. She’s Jax’s best friend and these two would do anything for each other.
What did I love about this book? Absolutely everything!
Can I say that? Yes I can.
The leads were the perfect level of conflicted and confused and of course sweet and charming and lovely.
The villains were skin crawlingly awful.
The romance made me want to cry tears of swoony joy. (I also cried actual proper sad tears a time or too…)
The only bad thing about it… It ended and the rest of the series ISN’T OUT YET.
I’m also going to note here, that an absolute stand out for me in this book was Rhen. I’ve always loved Rhen. Even in A Heart So Fierce and Broken when he did THE THING and I just found his appearances in this book and interactions with Tycho to be perfect.
The whole book is just perfection okay? End of story.
Picking up a few years from the end of the Cursebreakers series, Grey and LIa Mara are faced with groups threatening their reign, or Grey's. Tycho, now the King's Messenger travels between Rhen and Grey's castles delivering messages about goings on. But suddenly Tycho finds himself in the middle of the traitors' plot and having to decide who he trust in the royal court.
I loved Tycho. He's already suffered much in the Cursebreakers, but he's grown into a strong, kind, loyal man. He suffers at the hand of the traitors' machinations, but he ends up finding a similar soul in blacksmith Jax. He gives Taycho something that is just his own and to fight for. He may see Grey as his family, but it's hard to leave up to the expectation he puts on himself to live up to Grey's standard. Jax allow him to be more himself and leave his duty at the door. Taycho gave that same safety to Jax, helping him understand he is more than his missing limb and gaining the confidence to do more. I'm excited to see this relationship grow.
Callyn, Jax's best friend, left me guessing (quite often) about what side she was actually on. She flip-flopped quite a bit, which drove me insane. I wanted her to have steadfast loyalty to Jax, but Callyn seemed to go with the 'crowd' before finally looking at all the evidence to make up her own mind. The end of the book shows us Callyn has a big secret of her own, so I'm wondering how this is going to play out moving forward. It definitely makes things interesting.
