Synopsis

Crest of the Stars follows Ghintec Linn (aka Jinto Lynn), a young count whose world is taken over by the space-dwelling race of the Abh. When Ghintec was a young boy, his father, Rock Lynn, under threat of invasion, handed over their world, Martine, to the Abh in exchange for a position within Abh society. Young Ghintec is sent off to school to learn the ways of Abh nobility and the story of Crest of the Stars picks up as he meets the young Abh princess, Lamhirh (aka Lafiel) as they are about to travel to military school for Ghintec's further training.

However, in the midst of their travels, Lamhirh and Ghintec (along with the Abh ship Gothlauth, aka Gosroth) find themselves at the very beginnings of a war between the Abh Empire and the Four Nations Alliance of humankind—an anti-Abh alliance of the democratic nations of the United Mankind, the Federation of Hania, the Republic of Greater Alcont, and the People's Sovereign Union of Planets.

This review is based on J-Novel Club's Collector's edition.

Crest of the Stars is a classic space-opera. It acts as a prelude to it's sequel, 'Banner of the Stars.' And it's one of the best light novel science fiction stories out there.

The main reason to love this story is the carefully crafted world and it's characters. The protagonists are Lafier (Lafiel in the anime) and Jint (Jinto in the anime). Lafier is an Abh, part of a genetically advanced race. This race controls most of the galaxy as a major empire. As a whole, the Abh are intriguing as an ideal, yet still a flawed existence.
