William, the son of King Gregorio Derry, is being sent to earth to eliminate the dangerous Star-child. Sydney’s life is anything but exciting. However, when a strange but appealing man appears at her doorstep, she begins to hope that her life might become more exhilarating. Though William was sent to destroy Sydney, he begins to question his mission. The more time they spend together, the more they can’t deny that fate has led them to each other. Will the star-crossed lovers beat the odds?


The author developed a very interesting concept for this story. It is unlike any book I have read before. One of the main characters, William, was quite likable from the beginning. I enjoyed reading about him; he was my favorite character. Unfortunately, Sydney was not as likable a character for me. She came across as whiny at times and seemed to lack depth. I wished that her character had more feeling and complexity so that I could have cared about her and become invested in what happened to her.

The entire book was very fast-paced in my opinion. It kept me interested throughout the read; I didn’t get bored once.

The only other complaint I have about this book is that at times the wording seemed child-like, as well as forced and unnatural.

Though there were a few things I believed needed some refining, overall the book was a good read that I enjoyed. It is great for sci-fi/romance lovers of all ages.
