The Star-Crossed Saga: ProtostarBy Braxton A. CosbyPublisher: Firefly Publishing & Entertainment Published: September 25, 2011Genre: YA Science FictionPage Count: 378 pages
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 has agreed to send his only son William, on a mission to restore honor to his family. What starts out routine, becomes a lot more complicated as an inopportune crash landing delays the assassination. During this time, William begins to form a 'connection' with Sydney that challenges his inner being. But this conflict is the least of his problems, as a conspiracy back on his home planet Fabricius threatens the lives of those he loves and his father's royal legacy. Along with that, he must unravel a hidden threat here on Earth that seeks to secure a vested interest that threatens both his and Sydney's safety. Will William be able to complete his mission or will he choose love, sacrificing everything he stands for?


Review:


YA readers, be on the lookout for this exhilarating read, cause it's going to blow you and anyone else away! At first, I was a little hesitant on Protostar, because of the somewhat familiar storyline but, the book, characters, and everything else about it was uniquely different and very special. This made the book, Protostar, worth reading. 
The main character, William, is a teenage prince from the future. He is sent on a mission to kill a star-child in our time Earth, Sidney. William was a strong main character that pressed the whole story forward. Sidney also was a very likable character. 
The main plot of the book like I said before is a bit predictable, but the book also has its fair share of amazing plot twists and a killer cliff-hanger ending. The whole book proved to be very interesting with all the great elements thrown into it. I applaud Mr. Cosby for writing such a great book. Though the book is targeted towards young-adult readers, other readers would probably like it as well. Protostar is an attention catching book that really did blow me away. I'm hoping that the books in the rest of the series will be a great as this one, once they are out.

Braxton A. Cosby
Braxton’s fascination of science grew into an obsession for creating and exploring the untapped potential of the human spirit. On one unassuming Sunday in church, this self-proclaimed romantic heard the voice of God speak and decided to pursue a ‘calling’ to create a new genre of writing called “Sci-Fance”; merging the two genres of Romance and Science Fiction. Braxton lives in Georgia with his wife and two children. Braxton A. Cosby is a dreamer with a vision of continuously evolving and maximizing the untapped potential of the human genome. He believes that everyone should pursue joy that surpasses understanding and live each day as if it were the last. Braxton received a lot of his inspiration from watching the accomplishments and exploits of his famous uncle, comedic legend Bill Cosby.You can visit his website at www.braxtonacosbygodson.com.
