Sydney and William are back in this explosive finale to the Star-Crossed Saga. With their bond threatening to destroy them, William is forced to leave Sydney on Earth in search of a cure. Sydney stays on Earth and continues her training as a star-child, though it is more difficult than she imagined. With threats both alien and human, it seems that the whole world is out to get her. Will the two star-crossed lovers survive to meet again? Join Sydney and William in this final adventure across the stars.


I was unsure of what to expect for the final book in the Star-Crossed Saga. I loved the first book but was disappointed by the second, so I tried to keep an open mind with the third book and give it a shot. I’m glad I did.

The author improved his writing style vastly. The words flowed off the page in a way that felt life-like. I was intrigued from start to finish, and it did not bore me at any point. I felt that the phrase “Star-Crossed” was a lot more applicable in this book than in the previous ones, as I was able to explore space a lot more in this book than in the others. I loved seeing more of the author’s view of the universe in this story.

I was impressed with the character growth of Sydney. I did not like her at all in the first and second books, but in the finale she became a lot more likeable. One thing I do wish is that the author had more scenes of William and Sydney together. While I understand the reasoning behind keeping them separated, I really wish they had been together more in the finale.

Overall, this is an amazing conclusion to the Star-Crossed Saga. I recommend it for anyone 12+ who loves sci-fi and romance.
