Supernova is the second book in the Star-Crossed Saga by Braxton A. Cosby. This almost felt like a coming of age time for Sydney, and I guess in a way it was. She's developing powers that she has no control over just like her feelings and emotions. She's all over the place emotionally, and she spends a lot of the time apart from William. The pacing was a little slow this time around in places, but I really love the story. Sydney and William's relationship is hard to predict right now. Just when you think all is well, something happens to throw a wrench in things. Star-Crossed couldn't be a more perfect name for this series. Supernova by Braxton A. Cosby was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
Sydney is struggling to understand her role as a Star-Child and her powers. She is conflicted as she returns to school and Jeff, a boy she has feelings for while trying to understand her feelings for William. Sydney is also on the second stage of becoming a Star-Child and having trouble controlling her growing powers. But there are still people hunting her down and Sydney is going to have to learn about her powers to keep ahead of those that want to kill her. While protecting Sydney, William doesn’t know how his father is under attack and there are a couple more groups coming for them, including his friend Arrion. Learning about Noella really got me, I’m so glad that she decided to help. All the while Sydney is suffering from mood swings and more. Is this change going to kill her before those hunting her get their hands on her? This is a great series that will suck you right into the story. I love both William and Sydney, I think they make a great couple. Although there are more people added in, I had no trouble keeping track of what was happening. Then ending left me wanting more, I’m so glad that I already have Supernova so I can start reading it right away.
Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite Supernova by Braxton A. Cosby is a thrilling tale of love, protecting your loved ones, and understanding yourself. The action packed tale of William and Sydney continues. The novel picks up where Protostar ended. William and Sydney are together and William has decided that his love for Sydney is much bigger and more powerful than his duty. Sydney also discovers that Noella was a bounty hunter sent to kill her, but they have patched it up and are now set on protecting each other. Everything is going fine until they learn that another threat is coming to Earth to destroy them. On top of that, Sydney is turning into Supernova. With emotions running high and the feelings their love evoked, Sydney has a lot on her plate. She wants to survive; she does not want to hurt William and loves him very much. But it is a battle every day. With the new threat and new enemies after them, William and Sydney try to keep their relationship alive and save each other. But it is getting harder with every passing minute. Can they save their lives and their love? Or will it perish under the light of Supernova? I was super excited to read Supernova. Protostar was the best novel I read in 2011 and I was waiting to see if there would be another novel in the series. You can imagine my level of excitement when I got to read Supernova. I was happy to discover that the thrill was still there and so was the love that readers were promised. I simply loved the relationship between Sydney and William. I wish men like William were real. He was protective without being smothering, giving Sydney room to come to terms with her changing body and powers, and simply loving her. They were a team and almost a family with their friends around them. The climax was so good, I was literally trembling. Five shining GOLD stars!
