Synopsis


In a world where nutrition can be transferred via a pill, and society is split into Eaters and Non-Eaters, seventeen-year-old Princess Vela has a grave dilemma. Her father, the king, is dying, and only a transplant of organs from a healthy Non-Eater boy will save him.

Vela is tasked with choosing a boy fit to die for the king, which is impossible enough. But then Carr, the boy she's loved all her life, emerges as the best candidate in the Bittersweet Trials. And he's determined to win because by doing so, he can save the life of his Non-Eater sister.

Refusing to accept losing the boy she loves, Vela bends the rules and cheats. But when someone begins to sabotage the Trials, Vela must reevaluate her own integrity—and learn the true sacrifice of becoming a ruler.
thoughts

Ever since I discover books written by Pintip Dunn, I have always looked forward to reading her new latest book and in 2018, she releases new YA, Sci-Fi, Romance book which I am definitely excited to read it.

It sets in the planet of Dion where food is very limited although, with all technological advancement, they are still in short supply of food. The community in Dion is been divided into two; one, the aegis (they been assigned a quota set amount of food they need to consume and transfer it into pills; in other words, they will eat solid food) and Colonists, people who received nutrients from pills. Princess Vela, the daughter of the king also an Aegis, her father wants to step down from the throne, thus, Princess Vela and her older sister, Princess Blanca will be tested by the Council to know who will be the suitable one for the throne. Each of them has different tasks they need to accomplish.

"Layer upon layer of sacrifice. It is not only the honorable thing to do. It is normal and expected. This colony wouldn't exist if it weren't for the sacrifices of our original colonists. That is why we are called the Aegis. The protectors." 

Star-Crossed is an amazing story that put me on the edge of my sits, a page-turner that I could not stop my reading not even for a minute because the story makes me curious to know what's going to happen next and the romance in this book is at the great amount. I have been hooked by the story right from the beginning which I instantly know, Star-Crossed will be my favorite Sci-Fi, Dystopian book in 2018. There are so many things happened in this book between Princess Vela and her best friend also with her sisters and the guy she has been in love since forever and not to forget, the tasks she needs to accomplish is definitely the hardest with all the decisions she needs to make.

I can't get enough of Star-Crossed - the story, characters, world-building are very impressive also there are teeny tiny bits in my heart that I hope there is a sequel to it. Overall, I really enjoy my reading with all the characters right from the beginning of this book and Pintip Dunn's writing is incredible.  I hope you will enjoy it too.
