Start your review of Starcrossed: Perigee (Starcrossed, #1)
This book to me was amazing! Coming from someone that loved watching X-Files growing up this was definitely my bag of tea. When it first started with the character, Lucy waking up in a barn in horse manure, I was a little taken back. But after the first couple of pages I was hooked! When she meets Aric, it's like her whole life is turned upside down and she learns things about herself and things all around her that aren't quite as they seem.

One of the big things that I loved about this book was

i really liked this book. It's a very different Paranormal Romance book than I have read before but I loved it.

It follows Lucy, a normal teenage girl who had episodes of sleepwalking and ending up in weird places with no memory of how she got there. Then she meets the mysterious and gorgeous Aric. Soon her world is turned upside down as she discovers the existence of Alien-type creatures called Innaki, who are after her. Soon Lucy is on the run with Aric to try and get away from them, tho not ev

Overview: I know you have a bit of an outline above, but I will add a little to it. :)
It's about Lucy, a girl who wakes up in her uncles barn from a very bizarre dream. When she goes into town with her Uncle she meets someone who her uncle later on hires as help. She soon falls for the guy not knowing anything about him. As time goes on she learns that her Uncle meeting him was no coincidence. Aric was there to watch over Lucy and keep her safe from those that haunted her dreams (and apparently

So i read this for about 3-4 hours straight. Couldn't put it down. Honestly, it was just refreshing. It's really not everyday that i get to read about ufo's, aliens and hot guys with compelling voice and a lot more super powers.

The protagonist, Luce, is now one of my favorite kick ass girls together with Katniss, Katsa, Clary and many more. She is somewhat still, a typical teenager but i guess being abducted by aliens all throughout her life and being passed between relatives most of her life,

Wow! Did I love this book!

I loved the two main characters together. Once they were together, that was it and I love that. Aric was very sweet and protective. He literaly risked everything for her and never once made me wanna slap him for being an idiot guy! And Lucy was very level-headed which I LOVE in my protags. Their story and all the crazy stuff that happened to them kept me glued fo the pages. For once, I was actually more intrigued with the plot that the romance between the characters and

Not what I normally read, but I found it highly entertaining, and somewhat addictive. Ok, more than "somewhat" addictive, it drew me in and wouldn't let go! I love the fullness of the characters, and the whole idea behind the book is intriguing. The pace keeps rolling; there's no lagging chapters, or dragging scenes. All in all, a very good book. ...more

Wow. Tracey Lee Campbell has created an incredible, fast-paced, action-packed, romance-filled sci-fi tale in Starcrossed: Perigee.

After a disturbing incident from her youth involving her mother, Lucy is passed around from relative to relative until she finally finds a home with her rancher uncle and his family. A few weeks before her high school graduation, Lucy meets Aric, a boy who is definitely more than he seems, and finds herself swept up into a world of conspiracy, lies, unearthly beings

I had to wait a while before I wrote this review becuase although I truly enjoyed reading this book, I did have several issues with it that has taken me a while to put into words.
The story is about a girl called Lucy who lives with her Uncle on his farm. Her Uncle hires a new "farmhand" (I think that's what its called) called Aric who seems to be able to read Lucy's thoughts and is able to do other things humans shouldn't be able to do. Needless to say he's far from human. Before we know it, Luc

I am SO happy that Tracey sent me her debut novel, Starcrossed: Perigee to review. It is a really, REALLY awesome book! It has a completely original concept that made it hard to put down. I must say that this is not my typical read… but I am very happy I gave it a shot.

The book started off a bit slow for me, but that quickly changed when Lucy met Aric! He was such a captivating character on the page, I can’t imagine what he’d be like in person! I definitely give Tracey two-thumbs up for writing

Ugggh. After not finishing the last two books I started, I was beginning to fear that I had lost the ability to do so. It was that fear that made me slog through the rest of this book. I think I'm still partially in my jaded place. I'm tired of stories where impossibly perfect paranormal men fall in love with human girls FOR NO APPARENT REASON. Definitely need to take a break from YA lit. At least until the Divergent sequel comes out. Anyway, this one sounded good, got good reviews, and was avai ...more

This was such a great idea! There are lots of science fiction/fantasy books out there for Young Adults. And I can't put my finger on what made this book so different, except to say that the feel of the book was! Lucy seemed like a very normal, down to earth (haha) girl. Until she meets a very different kind of guy, and everything changes. There are things going on in the universe that are beyond imagining, and Lucy is right in the middle of it. Now she has to rely on this strange and ...more

Starcrossed: Perigree is a really fun read that's perfect for beach or poolside. We follow 17 year old Lucy as she encounters love along with a panoply of aliens, alien-human hybrids, clones, and amoral military types. The evil 'Grays' are completely detestable. All, including Lucy, display interesting and unusual powers. The plot moves along quickly from the rumblings of teenage romance to various exciting escapes from alien abductors bent on nefarious experiments. We learn about Lucy's troubl ...more

Great storyline that flows the journey of Lucy and Aric as they escape the dangers all around them. It's a mix of romance and the supernatural world that follows them at every turn. I'm usually not a fan of sci-fi, and most definitely not a fan of anything alien, but surprise, surprise, this story pulled me in and wouldn't let go! Between the action, the romance, and the creep factors, I was engrossed from start to finish. This story does not slow down, nor bore the reader. I cannot wait to see ...more

Starcrossed is definitely different from what I normally read. I enjoyed seeing someone do something new instead of the normal vampires or werewolves. Aric is great and you can’t help but to love him. I was really happy that the author chose not to add any explicit love scenes seeing how the main character Lucy is only 17 through most of the story. I look forward to seeing how the rest of the series progresses and how Lucy grows into her skills.

This really is a wonderful book and if I was much younger I would rate it higher. It probably should be 4 stars, but it just didn't appeal to me that much.

This is a wonderful sci-fi romance for young adults. It is written well with a lively plot. Lucy is a very admiral lead character, which is always nice to see in young adult books.

You know what really sucks about this book? There were some interesting ideas in here. There were beings from different worlds and dimensions. There was a crazy awesome explanation for life on Earth. There were new beings that could have played much better roles throughout the story instead of being ridiculously normal bad guys with half assed agendas.

Instead what you get is:

Underdeveloped characters.

Starcrossed: Perigee tells the story of a teenager named Lucy who starts to remember her alien abduction experiences after she meets a boy named Aric. It is a fast-paced book that moves quickly from one exciting, sometimes scary scene to the next. As the story develops, following the relationship between Aric and Lucy, we are introduced to the fascinating and sinister world of aliens called the Innaki. Aric is a hybrid whose special hypnotic powers are used by the Innaki to help them handle huma ...more

Starcrossed Perigee was such a great read that sucked me in from page one!
First I have to say that the originality behind the storyline is so refreshing that I have to thank Tracey for that! When I read the reviews they said this book will appeal to fans of X-files which I was and this is spot on but I think only one part of the novel will appeal to X-files fans, you also have a great romance developing in this book without a love triangle which is another good point for the author.

This was recommended to me by my fellow GR friend, Mocha. She told me it was good. It was. The beginning was great and alien. I was glad to read something different rather than the usual werewolves, vampires thing. The idea of other worldly dimensions creatures crossing and breaking through the earth's quarantine was interesting. It was totally new and eye-opening. This is my first book about aliens using humans as a vessel to collect wyk (energy) and harvesting human blood. *shivers*

Is there a sequel coming out?
Seems appropriate enough as many things are left unexplained...and a lot of loose ends.

So Starcrossed was an okay book,I suppose.
I've read better.
I know it's not fair to I wouldn't do that.
This book lacked in various aspects and the major one of them being "logic".
Things just...seemed to be happening.
And then somewhere I thought that at last they were explaining..but no.
Some explanations did come my way but for the most part they seemed lame.
I liked Aric.

I liked the book it was entertaining. In the middle there were somethings that moved so fast to me that I did not know how they got from here to there. Example Lucy and Arik were spending a lot of time together but never declared they were going out and then all of a sudden they are boyfriend and girlfriend. I felt like we know she likes him but i was not sure about him. I feel like I might have to read this book over because I feel like I might have missed some parts. I did love that there was ...more
