The first thing I noticed abut Braxton A. Cosby’s book The Star-Crossed Saga; Protostar was the cover. It definitely got my imagination going. The story begins with Prince William preparing for his mission to destroy the Star-Child. The Torrian Alliance was on the brink of civil war when the Council recommended sending Prince William to Earth-- thousands of light years away--to destroy the Star-Child before civil war broke out and the ancient prophecy was fulfilled. When he began his journey he never expected to fall in love with his target. Sydney Elaine was a typical seventeen year old girl with no knowledge of her destiny. The Council lost patience with William and sent a new team to assassinate Sydney. William must now choose between his world and the woman he loves.

This Young Adult Sci-Fi book has it all: romance, innocence, mystery, intrigue, prophecy and adventure. While this plot has been used before, Braxton Cosby puts a fresh new slant on it. William seemed a bit other worldly and it was fun watching him and Sydney’s relationship grow.

This clever book was written for the true Sci-Fi connoisseur. Cosby writes like a seasoned author and I look forward to the next installment in this series.
