"Emotional and intense! If you liked the first, I definitely recommend it." — Lori, Goodreads Reviewer
"This book was SO AWESOME! Better than book one, and I know most of you don't think that's possible." — Alyssa, Goodreads Reviewer
"Captain Lee Chase is going to kick your ass. I love her. I have a total girl crush on her." —Cuddlebuggery
"This Shattered World dials up the intensity and suspense by about a million and a half." —Bibliophilia, Please
"Wow, just wow!! I just loved Lee and Flynn so much. Amazing characters, amazing plot, and wow the feels!" — Princess Bookie, Goodreads Reviewer
"The story this dynamic duo told was absolutely out of this world gorgeous. I think it's pretty much safe to say that nobody writes young adult sci-fi romance the way that these two do." —Susan, Goodreads Reviewer
"Complex main characters, lots of action, a slow-building romance that will make you soon... I did not want to put this book down!!" — Feed Your Fiction Addiction

The Book

Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met.

Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet’s rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents.

Rebellion is in Flynn’s blood. Terraforming corporations make their fortune by recruiting colonists to make the inhospitable planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion.

Desperate for any advantage in a bloody and unrelentingly war, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape the rebel base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war.

The stunning second novel in the Starbound trilogy is an unforgettable story of love and forgiveness in a world torn apart by war.

THIS SHATTERED WORLD
By Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction
ISBN: 978-1-7433-1970-3

The Book

It’s a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver finda strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

The first in a sweeping science fiction trilogy, These Broken Stars is a timeless love story about hope and survival in the face of unthinkable odds.
