Description

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 Fittest 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 Fittest Trials, Vela must reevaluate her own integrity - and learn the true sacrifice of becoming a ruler.

Review quote

"With a prose as incandescent as a nebula, and a romance that blazes like the sun, Star-Crossed utterly consumed me from the very first page. Readers will savor this riveting, emotional tale of hope and supreme sacrifice." --Darcy Woods, award-winning author of Summer of Supernovas

"Pintip Dunn's creative worldbuilding brings to life a delicious tale full of depth and complexity with a bold heroine filled with love, loyalty, and courage. Star-Crossed will transport readers to another universe and leave them hungry for more!" --Brenda Drake, NYT bestselling author of the Library Jumpers series

"Pintip Dunn has crafted one multi-course meal of a story: a fascinating premise to whet the appetite, an entree of utterly compelling world-building seasoned with literary prose, and a forbidden romance that has all the decadence of the richest dessert. It's well worth savoring!" --Jen Malone, author of Wanderlost and Changes in Latitudes
