I was hooked from the moment I started reading this book. I enjoy reading the kind of love stories where love knows no boundaries of time and space. The characters were really well thought out. The story follows William, a prince from where he comes from as he travels searching for a star child. His mission to kill the star child comes up out of ignorance of their true natures. He ends up on Earth where he meets Sydney. Here I’m sure you’ll think the story becomes the typical boy meets girl love story, but it does not. There are many twists and turns in the plot that will surely keep the reader’s attention. Sydney is your typical teenager who hangs out with her girlfriends as much as possible.

Just when you think the story might become predictable, a new twist is introduced. The author has done this so subtly that you won’t even notice the change of pace in the story but will continue reading all the same. A lovely story filled with enough action to keep the reader from losing interest. The most interesting part of the story is Sydney’s reaction to the truth about William and her true nature. How she handles this and the truth about some of her friends as well as her relationship form the crux of the story. The author has the ability to make us experience everything he has described making the reader believe that what he/she is reading is actually happening at that moment. At some points in the story it feels as if we are being shown a movie as the description is so graphic.

This is a wonderful story to read and I cannot wait to read the next book. I recommend this book for all those romantics and fans of Fantasy Sci-fi out there.
