Written in the Stars by Lissa Bryan


**"Written in the Stars" is a fanfiction story, the one which brought me to the attention of my publisher.**

Edward is king of a dying race, his planet torn by civil war. Bella is abducted to become his bride. From college student to Queen... Can she learn to love this strange man and help save his people? AU/OOC. Rated M for lemons, violence and mature themes.

4.5 out of 5

So, I generally avoid fan fiction... but a friend (one who will remain anonymous by her request... but she is a fellow book reviewer) told me that I had to read this one.  And she was right.  This fan fiction was based off of Twilight (which I'm not a fan of), but I think I might be a fan of this.  

This Bella is strong, though she doesn't know it.  She needs Edward, but that doesn't make her needy.  I liked that about her.  

This Edward is a cuddler, a romantic, and appears to be an almost perfect man.  But he still has his faults.  And he still makes mistakes.  Plus, he doesn't sparkle in the sunlight!

I liked that there was not only the romance between Bella and Edward, but there was the adventure and drama of war, the new experience of new cultures, new religions, and the idea of the mating/pregnancy/delivery/incubation for Bella and Edward will keep you on the edge of your seat to find out what will happen next.

I hate what happened to Tanya, as she was one of my favorite characters.  She was so wise and serene... Like a clear running brook on a warm sunny day.  

Now it is a bit drawn out.  I think you could actually make it 2 or 3 stories.  but don't let that stop you from reading this story!

Overall, this is a great story.  If you haven't read any fanfic, maybe give this one a try.

Happy Reading!
