Only one can survive...
Princess Vela's people are starving.
Stranded on a planet that lacks food, Vela makes the ultimate sacrifice and becomes an Aegis for her people. Accepting a genetic modification that takes sixty years off her life, she can feed her colony via nutrition pills. But her best friend is still getting worse. And she's not the only one.
Now the king is dying, too.
When the boy she's had a crush on since childhood volunteers to give his life for her father's, Vela realizes her people need more than pills to survive. As tensions rise between Aegis and colonists, secrets and sabotage begin to threaten the future of the colony itself.
Unless Vela is brave enough to save them all…
Star-Crossed by Pintip Dunn is a captivating book for any YA reader. Pintip uses science fiction to write an incredible story about a life of Eaters and Non-Eaters. An Eater is a person who is able to eat food. A Non-Eater is a person who is considered to be poor and unable to eat real food. They have to eat supplements but if a Non-Eater eats real food something terrible happens.
Princess Vela is the daughter of a king who’s time is soon to be over, since he is dying. Her decision could save the king or kill him but the problem is…her love interest. Carr is a candidate to save her father’s life, but doing so will mean his death. Throughout her mission Vela must overcome her feelings for Carr, make sure her best friend Astana survives, and find out who is trying to kill her and her father. With only a couple of weeks to figure everything out will she make a decision?
Pintip took every moment in Star-Crossed and made them last. She has a great plotline, great realistic characters, and a teen love story that would make every teen girl scream with sadness and happiness. Every book I have read from her is better than the last one. Finding out that Star-Crossed is going to be in a series makes me very happy.
