Darlene Oakley of Kemptville, Ontario recommends Starborn by Ann O’Bannon
Name of publisher: Lachesis
Genre: Futuristic Romance
About the book:
Starborn is book 2 of this futuristic romance series. Book 1 will be released as an ebook Fall 2009. David is an “astronaut” of the future as the human race is still mastering space travel. Through an amazing cosmic twist, Zara, a Shimuran from another galaxy lands in the Milky Way and finds David. Book 2 happens when David and Zara arrive on earth. Not everyone is excited about this new spacial contact. As the romance between David and Zara develops and the relationship between Earth and Shimura is revealed, tensions mount between those that want to embrace this new race and those that like their “earth” the way it is.
