Tour! A Review of ProtoStar by Braxton A. Cosby

Publisher: Winter Goose Publishing

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.

ProtoStar is the first book in the Star-Crossed Series by Braxton A. Cosby. I'm not normally a huge science fiction fan. At least not when it comes to books. I'll watch sci-fi movies all day long though. Go figure. With that being said, ProtoStar had just the right amount of Science Fiction mixed with Humor and Romance to fully keep my attention. William, the Prince/Bounty Hunter, is a dedicated character, so when he starts to feel more for the Star Child, who he is supposed to kill, he really tries to fight it. Sydney has no idea who or what she is, but she has some odd dreams and never really felt like she fit in with people. These two characters had a sweetness to their interactions from the beginning. I loved IMPI, an artificial intelligence that guides and helps William. He was a complete hoot. I hope he's around in the upcoming books. I'll miss him if he's not. There's a storm brewing in this series, and I'm curious to see where it all leads.
