Star Dust by Ali Winters

28515382A case of mistaken identity triggers a reign of terror.

A Star Princess of Soleis, bound by tradition, is forced to fulfill an arrangement made prior to her birth. During the Tauri masque, Oriana meets a handsome stranger, but soon finds out he is not who she thought.

Prince Lucian, unfamiliar with the treaties of the Universe, must restore the reputation of his world and prove his kingdom is not behind the attacks.

No one knew an innocent mistake could lead to the destruction of the solar system. Worlds are conquered, lives torn apart, and destruction reigns, while Oriana, unknowingly, holds the key to salvation.

Now, a Princess who needs saving must save herself, the man she loves, as well as the rest of the Universe, before it is destroyed beyond repair.

OMG look at this cover!?!?!?!?!  Isn’t it georgeous?  I’m not usually one for covers but Mrs. Winters has always had excellent taste in covers.  This story was original and I was intrigued from the very beginning.  The chemistry between Oriana and Lucian was playful and innocent.  It felt very effortless as I read it.  The only thinig that confused me were the inner/outer ring references. But that could just be me, I have been known to be a dense reader at times.

Oriana barely has time to get used to her new life when it seems disaster after disaster stikes.  This was a pretty fast paced book with loads of action.  I really like how she gets to travel all over the universe meeting all sorts of different species.  And some of the people she meets are so cool.  Liek the Neptunes princesses, they were my favorite!

The world building in this book was fantastic in my opinion.  I felt like I was on a intergalactic tour!  Each planet had its own unique setting and the descriptions were really easy to understand.  Sometimes I get lost with all the descriptive talk but in this book it wasn’t over done.

I enjoyed how Lucian battled between what he felt in his heart and what he felt in his head. His constant tug of war with his feelings gave him a lovely depth of character that I enjoyed immesnsely.  And Oriana had a great sense of dutry for one who wasn’t really trained for it.  She stuggled a bit with her self-confidence but never did she give up.

I am super excited to see what this author comes up with next since this one was such a homerun for me.  Defenitely recommend it.
