Star-Crossed Saga Review by Kelsey G.

The Star-Crossed Saga, Protostar
By: Braxton A. Cosby
About the book:
It Starts With Choice! What would you choose: love or irrefutable duty?
On the brink of Civil War, the Torrian Alliance continues with its mission to obliterate Star-children across the universe in order to suppress an intergalactic evil. Following the recommendations of his Council, King Gregorio Derry has agreed to send his only son on a mission to restore honor to his family. Bounty Hunter Prince William Derry has crossed thousands of light-years to planet Earth, in order to fulfill this age old prophetic practice. The quiet days of Madisonburg, Tennessee are officially over as Sydney Elaine now knows the full meaning of the phrase Be careful what you wish for when she is confronted by this strange visitor. As an unforeseeable event delays his assassination, William decides to study his target more closely and begins to form a connection with Sydney that challenges his inner being. But this conflict is the least of his problems, as a conspiracy back on his home planet Fabricius threatens the lives of those he loves and his father s royal legacy. Along with that, he must unravel a hidden menace here on Earth that seeks to secure a vested interest that threatens both his and Sydney s safety. Will William be able to complete his mission or will he choose love, sacrificing everything he stands for?

Review by Kelsey G.
Mr. Cosby has crafted a well-rounded universe and managed to populate it with sympathetic characters. At first I was thrown by the awkward dialogue, but then I remembered, this is, after all, a completely different planet...so who am I to say their everyday conversation style is dated and stumbling? Once I suspended my disbelief in that regard, I was able to enjoy the story as the young adult romance it was meant to be. I think that this may be a bit on the immature side for some, but Protostar is the first installment of what I think will be a very successful series.
