Bookaday: Across the Galaxy by Heather Hildenbrand

Across the GalaxyAcross the Galaxy - YA Fantasy

Most teenage girls have teenaged problems, like what to wear to prom and did I remember to shave my legs before gym? Seventeen year old Alina has all those problems, and a whole lot more. The list does tend to get longer when you’re an alien. An alien empress, to be exact.

Number one on Alina’s problem list is her desire to fit in and feel accepted, without having to hide any part of her true self; something she’s never quite been able to do on Earth. Also on that list are the Shadows, a race of dark and ugly monsters that attacked her home planet ten years ago, killing her parents, and still searching for her now, to wipe out the last survivor of the royal family. Luckily, she has Peter to protect her and keep her hidden, until the day they might return. Naturally, he’s more than a little over-protective and highly dedicated to training the future empress he’s been charged with raising.

A moonlit walk in the forest changes everything. She is discovered, by more than one being from her galaxy, and has to run for her life with a Shadow close on her trail. Her new protector – a talking wolf – whisks her and Peter to the safety of his planet, to regroup and maybe figure out a way to destroy the shadows. Unfortunately, Alina soon finds she’s only traded one danger for another.
