What Would You Choose: Love or Duty?
As the Torrian Alliance continues its age-old mission of hunting down Star-children, King Gregorio Derry reluctantly agrees to send his only son, William, to planet Earth on a mission to bring honor back to the Royal Family name. The target: Sydney, a young teenage girl, unaware of her alien heritage. When an unforeseen accident delays the assassination, William begins to realize a connection forming with Sydney and struggles to follow through with his orders. With the fear of Civil War imminent back home, William must make the ultimate choice between his irrevocable duty and love, sacrificing everything he believes. But as a hidden menace emerges to secure a vested interest, and impossible odds begin to mount against them, William and Sydney wonder if a connection between two Star-Crossed lovers is enough to save them from destruction.
This is yet another exciting read that I had the pleasure of enjoying this year. What a year it's been! This on had me from the first pages, and didn't disappoint. I enjoyed the plot, loved the characters, and was hooked early on! The end was a surprise, and left me wanting more!
This story takes starts by telling the reader about a girl, the 'Starchild' and a prince who is supposed to kill her...And it only gets more exciting from there! A great read for YA and adults alike, and easy to follow wither you are a sci-fi fan or not. I onten struggle with sci-fi/space books, but this one keeps you guessing, and the is written in a way that's easy to follow without being boring. Definitely check this one out if you enjoy an exciting romance story!
Easy to follow, and a fun, exciting story of two literal star-crossed lovers, it was well worth reading! I loved the characters, the plot was exciting and well written, and the action was easy to follow. I'm excited to see what happens next!
