The second installment in the epic Starbound trilogy introduces a new pair of star-crossed lovers on two sides of a bloody war.

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.

I had the opportunity to read this early – check back tomorrow for my review – but I can tell you right now that I like most books. I enjoy reading. But it is rare for a story to affect me the way this series has. I honestly can’t put my finger on it, but I am pretty sure I am ruined for most other YA’s. Heck, maybe even most other BOOKS. These Broken Stars (book 1 – click for my review) was so good that it is one of the first books I suggest to anyone for anything. Ever. And This Shattered World did not disappoint. I am so anxious for the next book I might throw up. But in the meantime, let me know what you think of this quote, enter to win some awesome stuff, and tell me if you will be at any of their tour stops – SCHEDULE HERE.

About Meagan Spooner

Meagan Spooner grew up reading and writing every spare moment of the day, while dreaming about life as an archaeologist, a marine biologist, an astronaut. She graduated from Hamilton College in New York with a degree in playwriting, and has spent several years since then living in Australia. She’s traveled with her family all over the world to places like Egypt, South Africa, the Arctic, Greece, Antarctica, and the Galapagos, and there’s a bit of every trip in every story she writes.

In her spare time she plays guitar, plays video games, plays with her cat, and reads.
