What Would You Choose, Love or 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 reluctantly agrees to send his only son William on a mission to restore honor to his family name.

William seeks to complete his assignment, the elimination of a Star-child named Sydney on planet Earth, but when the assassination is delayed he begins to realize an emotional connection with his target.

With conspiracy threatening his home planet, and a hidden menace on Earth seeking to secure a vested interest, William finds himself torn between irrevocable duty and sacrificing everything he stands for to defend Sydney.

As William and Sydney struggle to overcome their impossible circumstances, they start to wonder if the connection of two Star-Crossed lovers will be enough to save them from certain doom.

Braxton received a lot of his inspiration from watching the accomplishments and exploits of his famous uncle, comedic legend Bill Cosby. Braxton lives in Georgia with his wife and three children. He writes stories aimed at both entertaining and encouraging people to think and act.

This book, while enjoyable, left me with more questions that it did answers.

I had difficulty keeping track of the individual back stories that were happening from a variety of different characters, and at times I found myself re-reading passages to make sure I understood the point of view that the author was trying to portray.

There is character development, however I didn't feel any true spark between our lead characters, William and Sydney. There is some building of a relationship between them, however I do not believe the author got it quite right.

As regular readers of my blog know, I don't do spoilers, so I will just say, that I felt that there were a few holes in the story. 

That being said, I will read future books in this series to see if the story and characters develop.

I give this book 4 dragonflies.
