Goodreads Synopsis: 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.
I know, I know. At this point of the year, December (and Christmas) basically just feel FOREVER away. Way too far. But I know some people were VERY lucky and able to pick this one up at BEA. And for those of you haven't read the first book yet, you have some time to get to it before the sequel comes out!
But it's coming! And with it comes this spectacular sequel!! So I was a little bit late hopping onto the Starbound train, but I absolutely, positively ADORED These Broken Stars! It was everything I hoped for and more. Needless to say, I am weak with anticipation for This Shattered World. I love the whole political/war aspect to it, with star-crossed lovers on opposite sides. I'm a sucker for stories like that. I love that there's more planets and terraforming and all sorts of sci-fi goodness in it. Plus? These covers are to die for!
In particular, I'm very curious to see if any of the mysteries and questions we discovered in These Broken Stars will be dealt with in This Shattered World. I don't expect everything to be explained, but maybe a few more hints...?
Who else is eagerly awaiting This Shattered World? Have you read These Broken Stars, yet?
