"Another adventure you won't want to miss by Susan Grant!"
The Star Prince is the sequel to The Star King by Susan
Grant. Another excellent sci-fi adventure/romance, as we
find out what becomes of one of Jasmine Hamilton's
children. Not letting up on the same exciting pace we find
in The Star King, The Star Prince gives us another
dimension in the world of Vash Federation and what it means
to be a crown prince.
Ian Hamilton has been named the Crown Prince of the Vash
Federation, a title he takes very seriously as he wants to
earn the respect of his fellow man and prove he is right
for the job. When the book opens we find Ian is on a secret
mission for Rom B'kah to find out what is going on in the
new Frontier. With the knowledge of Ian becoming the next
King come those who would oppose him not only on earth but
also within the Vash Federation.
Just to make Ian's life even more interesting he has
unknowingly hired a runaway Vash Princess name Tee'ah
(Tee), as his new pilot. Stifled by her role as princess
where no choices are her own, she managed to secretly get
her wings and become a pilot. Her ability to fly gives her
the means to escape the planet and begin her new
adventure. Little does she know she has stumbled onto the
Crown Prince who is under cover as Ian Stone. Both find
that they need each other, as Ian has lost his pilot and
Tee's starship has just left with out her.
Happy to earn her way amongst the crew Tee eagerly takes
control of the ship and entrenches herself in Ian's
mission. For an earth dwelling Senator has been touring the
Frontier and all too eager to show the Vash to be a
reckless Federation that does not take care of their own.
Ian does not know who is feeding these ill truths and tries
to intercept the Senator.
Through all of the confusion and turmoil to do right by
his new role as Crown Prince, Ian finds Tee to be the
breath of fresh air that helps to keep him sane.
Unfortunately what Ian doesn't realize is that Tee is a
princess and with that knowledge only trouble can follow as
it is forbidden for him to entertain another mans
All the events and the complications of love come to a
head where many critical decision must be made if peace is
going to be kept not only on earth and with the Vash
Federation, but also with his heart. Does Ian have what it
takes to be the Crown Prince? Will the Vash finally accept
him and his decisions? More importantly will he be able to
have it all and Tee?
Susan Grant writes a book with incredible dynamics, both
political and emotional. On top of writing an excellent
adventure romance, she manages to bring in secondary
characters that fall in love, without upstaging the main
plot. This book is cleverly written, wonderfully
insightful, and compellingly romantic. I highly recommend
The Star Prince.
