Phaedrus is a guardian angel, a clone who watches over his charge as they travel through the universe. He’s tasked with protecting the young man he calls Prince while they slowly journey across the stars from the Worldwide Union of Earth to the colony named Otherworld. Prince slumbers in suspended animation as Phae does his best, alone on the vast ship.
Each day is the same as the next, year after year. Monotony and the beautiful Prince until the day their ship is invaded by aliens and the cryo tube begins to wake its occupant.
The last thing Kian Newell remembers is being stuffed in the tube by his father’s men and told that he’s to marry the leader of Otherworld in 150 years or so. Phae is a breath of fresh air to the jaded Kian and their feelings are quickly in tune. What they feel and what reality plans for them are unfortunately two different things. They will change what is written in the stars.
Bright Star melds science fiction with a beautiful romance. Told in first person point of view primarily by Phae though Kian gets his chance as well, Bright Star is a unique love story. This is a science fiction story through and through with a kick ass element of romance that goes straight to the heart at the climax. Phae and Kian’s love would melt a heart of stone. Just have patience till you get there.
