Gr 7 Up Kaufman and Spooner focus on new characters and a new world in this splendid return to the universe that they created in These Broken Stars Hyperion, Captain Jubilee Chase is the longest serving soldier on the partially terraformed planet of Avon, the only person who has proved immune to "The Fury," the mindless rage that strikes off-worlders who come to serve on Avon. Flynn Cormac is a member of the native Fianna rebels, who hopes that by kidnapping Chase, he can discover more about a mysterious facility hidden in the swamp to the east of the military's main outpost. Neither wants a return to the open warfare between the military and the Fianna that ended a decade earlier with the execution of the Fianna's former leader, Flynn's sister. The two develop a mutual respect that grows to something more--even as their alliance comes to be seen as a betrayal by both sides. Midway through the book, Tarver Merendsen and Lilac LaRoux make appearances, tying the many unexplained events in this title to those in the first volume of the "Starbound" trilogy.

Or maybe I just kept waiting for something to happen because I was expecting it and oh my gosh why don't characters just do what I tell them to? This books read fast and is engrossing, and it rarely, if ever, bores. It's got a lot of action, whether it's physical or some meticulous planning. It has two likeable POVs that do not ever annoy. Flynn and Jubilee both have their strengths and weaknesses and differences, but they have one very important thing in common: And also that they are totally meant to be together, ship ship ship.
Jubilee's pretty much a pure badass and a fighter, while Flynn fights with words and is more of a subtle badass who's searching for peace. I really liked this book and this is yet another review inaccurately show that, I know. I wouldn't say it was shattering, but it was good. I'm a fan of the setting and plot and how we got to see a whole new world in this Starbound world.
Though I still don't know if I fully get what was happening in those bits between each chapter. The characters were strong, the villain s vile, and the storyline filled with bits and pieces and some not-nice things. And the story goes fast. When I had twenty percent left I had no idea how on earth the book was going to end. No idea. It's not very predictable, which is a bonus. I knew what I wanted to happen and I had some inklings elsewhere, but for the most part, I had no idea what was going to happen as the story progressed.
And when the book ended I didn't want it to, because I wanted more. This Shattered World was a nice insight into the Starbound trilogy, and I'm looking forward to seeing what Kaufman and Spooner whip up next. If you read the acknowledgements, you'll see where the series is going next! I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, and that in no way sways my opinion of the book. That is very upsetting.

I was thinking it was okay but I am also sick today on my birthday as some of you know and was dozing in and out so that could be it too. For some reason I was thinking this was going to be a book about the people that were on the planet from the first book. The people that were there before Tarver and Lilac crashed. Noooo, it took me over half the book to figure out that wasn't it at all.
Lee is there with a crew to try to get rebel colonists under control. Avon is a terraformed planet, apparently there are a bunch of them.

Flynn is one of the rebels and he captures Lee with luck because she is bad to the bone and most men and women are afraid of her. But they talk and he finds out some things that Lee didn't even know about and he keeps talking about a building that he has seen. Lee and Flynn try to think of some ways they can get a ceasefire once and for all and get things right with all of the people.
I was so happy and that is when I figured some things out. You know like it being another planet and some other stuff that I'm not telling you. So far, I have enjoyed the first two books.
And I'm loving all of the book covers! I did love the first book a lot more than this one though. I hope I love the last book and that it's even better than this one!

View all 8 comments. Jan 27, Nicole marked it as to-read. The authors' decision to tell another story in the same world, but following different characters, is a really smart move in my opinion. One thing that's annoying about most series these days is that one story is pushed and pulled and dragged along three books.
But this author is completely capabl The authors' decision to tell another story in the same world, but following different characters, is a really smart move in my opinion. But this author is completely capable of saying, 'Hey, the story of these characters is over, but there's still more to tell about this wonderful world we've created'.
And so with that, a companion novel is most likely the best way to go. With that said, I'm really excited about this book and to see more of the world these author's have created. Although, I hope they don't use that type of font, oh lord. The cover! The synopsis! Also, Lee is a "tough-talking girl with nerves of steel"? View all 4 comments. Nov 26, Ari rated it it was amazing Shelves: All the stars beyond the clouded skies of Avon!
But trust me, you will feel like All the stars beyond the clouded skies of Avon! I, for one, could never have enough of this story. The characters are in their world, surrounded by their people, interacting with them and feeling somehow secure inside their territories, but there is the same amount of struggle to survive, to find the truth, to find a way out together.
The romance is sweet and realistic. Yes, there is some amount of attraction from the very beginning who would complain about that? There is as much character development as there is action. Both, perfectly well done. Flynn is witty and caring, Jubilee aka.
Lee is strong and determined. He wants peace and freedom for his people, she needs to keep order and to seek revenge. They are from different worlds just the way Tarver and Lilac were , from opposite sides of this senseless war, still they are perfect for each other.
The title is also perfect, Avon is a shattered word that needs mending, a world split in two that needs someone from each side to put it back together. I loved this tory and I adore this series.
Hope you will as well, when it comes out. Happy midnight reading! View all 5 comments. Dec 13, ranne rated it liked it Shelves: Fingers crossed for a Lilac and Tarver cameo! Dec 15, Faye, la Patata rated it really liked it Shelves: Some may see this book as a romance between star-crossed lovers, or an action full of guns a-blazin' between two sides who are at extreme odds with each other.
I'm tempted to write an extensive essay about all the things that make me feel that way, but that would mean writing a "passionate" page document and I doubt anyone has the time for that.
Reading this book was a beautiful experience. I can't even imagine it, having to face death and grief everywhere you go, as the characters in this book did. I really owe my being emotionally-involved to the writing. It was vivid and full of honesty and rawness that effectively transports the reader into the book.
But the best part in this book for me will always be that scene with the otherworldly being. It opened to me a perspective that was so life-changing and existential.
This is what I like about this book a lot. It really made me appreciate myself and our kind a lot and you all know how much faith in mankind I lose everyday because of the fucked-up shit we do and are capable of doing. It's like looking at the sky and singling out a star. Individually, each star is unique. Each star is in a place of its own, giving out light that is both lethal and life-giving. You can single out each star in a sky and find something interesting in every one of them. But start looking at the sky as a whole, see the stars as a whole, and what you will find is an enchanting picture of all the stars twinkling together.
All I'm saying is: Of course, I'm not going to end this review without at least commenting on the romance I didn't really make this a priority, because while I admit Flynn has stolen my heart oh, how I wish I were Jubilee!
I loved the romance as it was slow-paced and that was really cool. I loved how their scenes were nicely interweaved with the main storyline and how they found themselves and each other through the things they went through and experienced together. I loved how their feelings for each other were so obvious to the reader but they themselves took time to realize it. But if I had to complain about something, it would be the fact that side characters kept on telling the main characters that they were fallin for each other.
I was confused on how people outside the relationship would know Person A has fallen in love with Person B, even before Person A has realized his feelings. And seriously, it's already so obvious to the reader that it's useless to keep telling us that.
As if the continuous "confused feelings and emotions" they kept having were not enough. But aside from that, this book was perfect. It made me excited, and sad, and tormented. It made me think about our space in the universe and how it would be wonderful if we could teach the human spirit and what makes us human to creatures and entities that no doubt exist out there, somewhere.
I can't wait for the third book now! I have a feeling it will be about Sofia. View all 12 comments. Apr 18, Aj the Ravenous Reader rated it liked it Shelves: I could definitely see a pattern here.
This Shattered World takes place in the same world as that of These Broken Stars , virtually the same setting and nearly the same plot although I still very much prefer that of the first book except this time, the characters are different. This is basically the same with Gemina and Illuminae. Lilac and Tarver, I shipped from the very start of the story but Jubilee and Flynn , I feel kind of meh for their ship. I mean, I could move on even with them not ending up together. With the mentioned similar patterns, obviously I kind of found the second book a bit predictable and thereby losing the feeling of suspense and sense of adventure while reading and thus the three stars.
Still, the writing is undeniably simply beautiful and the characters are not hard to like. Rounded down to 4,5 stars this is the second book of Starbound series. This storry tells us about a girl Jubilee chase and a guy Flynn Cormac. Who shouldn't have supposed to fall in love. Jubilee is captain of forces sent to Avon to crush rebellious collonist, she doesn't have parents anymore because they both died when she was a kid.
She's a fearless girl and she's an expert at fight Flynn Cormac is a rebel, the one who made him like this is her sister's death. He wants to get what he wants through a peace way.
My Opinion about this book. So, I want to say if you like the first book but you haven't read the second book because you're not ready to let Tarver and Lilac go, you really really should to calm yourself and read this book because you'll see Tarver and Lilac again but you might probably forget about him because of Jubilee and Flynn, because that's what happened to me.
I'm serious, you guys have to read this book because once you read it, you can't resist it anymore. The Romance Wow, I couldn't even describe it, all I can say is this is a slow burning love and the romance is really really sweet and you might probably will cry when you read this book because this book is so beautiful, so so beautiful.
Yes, I was being so creepy but I couldn't help it I was really really happy because he deserved that after he killed Fergal, he's just 5 years old kid, how could he even possible to kill a 5 years old kid?!?! I have a giveaway on the blog to win one paperback of This Shattered World! Let me tell you now: Jubilee is the perfect soldier and she knows it: She's the captain of most well equipped and strongest force in Avon and well Sorry I had to say that.
As for Flynn, he's the brother of the former leader of the rebels, and now it's his job to take over his sister's stand. In terms of characterisation, Kaufman and Spooner do not fail to serve. Lee and Flynn complete each other and both of them had such brilliant backbone and authentic-ness. We make a turn for the better into a world of war and terror and lies and everything has become evidently darker and more plot-driven.
The atmosphere these two authors create is truly something special and utterly unique. And this is all because how bloody fantastic Kaufman and Spooner's prose is. Yes, I'd call it 'purple prose' I honestly hate the term, though but it's never over embellished--it's equal parts raw and intense. And honestly, I'm not complaining. We still get a lovely share of swoons and beautiful chemistry, but here, it's more about the war and the lies and horrors and twists that come with it.
Seriously, I loved it all.
Follow the Authors
Also, I'll add that we have a Tarver and Lilac cameo. They actually do have a part to play in the plot too, which made everything even more epic. The stakes are raised, the characters are even more fantastic and the extraterrestrial backdrop that these authors continue to expand all combine into one perfect novel. Highly recommended for all sci-fi fans.
May 13, Kat Lost in Neverland marked it as to-read. The people in these Starbound covers really need to get a gravity stabilizer, because jeez, twisting your arms around like that cannot be healthy. Is the guy in the cover the same one from These Broken Stars cover Well, well, well, colour me surprised. Love story, this was not.
And I loved it. For those sensitive to the presence of love in YA, the romance was a little hefty, especially considering the fact that the world building was a tad lacking which is always disappointing in a sic-fi. But for most, the romance was perfect. Lila LaRoux and Tarver encompassed your classic play on the hate to love trope. And so, for many, it would naturally be assumed that This Shattered World would welcome yet another ship for us all to pour our hearts and souls into.
And you know what? Creative Kaufman and Spooner were. Thanks school.
You see, while I enjoyed the whirlwind of a romance that was These Broken Stars, I always felt as though it was missing something. With science fiction, and ethereal settings such as foreign planets and boundless plains such as space, you want to bring your A-game when it comes to world-building.
This Shattered World offers that and more. We have phenomenal world building. We get backstory, motive and a little more sense of our surroundings. But of course, what I want to desperately discuss is the portrayal of war. Kaufman and Spooner have touched a soft spot in my heart.
I get particularly sensitive about the grey lines between right and wrong in a war. War, and its multifaceted nature, is always a difficult subject to broach and more often than not, it is portrayed unfairly, favouring one perspective.
We explore all the walks of life in this tale and all sides are given a chance to voice an opinion. But, in conjunction to my personal opinion, the retributive element was a tad convenient.

That being said, it was present and it will please. In terms of characterisation, we get a refreshing new set of characters. She is resilient, loyal and rational. Flynn Cormac is a rebel, the brother to the former leader of the rebellion; he is a fighter who wishes to utilise the art of words as opposed to weapons.
And while the two are opponents, they are ruled by a common desire: Naturally, as The Starbound Trilogy favours a bit of romance, something develops between the two. But it burns slowly. They sure do. I like my slow burn with a heck of a lot of wity banter. These two were not exactly well-versed in the art but I do forgive them.
It mirrors reality and is a fantastic lifeline for the audience, especially in a science fiction tale. And that is so incredibly rare nowadays, especially in the overpopulated sea of fiction where the quickie romance is favoured. I will mention that the names were a tad alternative. But then again, when is YA ever anything but hip, trendy and forward in the art that is names. We have Jubilee Chase.
Flynn Cormac also goes through quite the name transformation. Readers must keep in mind that he goes by three aliases; Romeo, Cormac and Flynn. Sure, the nickname I understand, but the progression to last name, out of no where, and then its complete abandonment, come the last quarter, in favour of the given name confused me a tad. For all those who wonder: Yes, they are the same loveable pair from the first book. And while it may come as a shock to many, I rather enjoyed this progression.
This Shattered World is a fantastic followup to These Broken Stars and has potentially taken this trilogy onto a new course: Corruption is pungent and against the backdrop of such an ethereal setting— space and its boundless, unlimited possibilities—it is all the more haunting.
Many thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review. May 01, Shannon leaninglights rated it really liked it.
Another star-bound adventure and two new protagonists to fall in love with! Jubilee was great, Flynn too.
I think I enjoyed it almost as much as These Broken Stars. Th Another star-bound adventure and two new protagonists to fall in love with!
This Shattered World felt more science fiction to me in theme and plot. Dec 16, Lucia rated it it was ok Shelves: As far as star-crossed lovers romance goes, this book is amazing. But and I can't believe I'm saying it the romance itself wasn't strong enough to suck me into the story. I wanted more world-building, more politics and more background info about characters. It was all touched lightly while romantic tension took the lead. And in my humble opinion, story suffered because of it.
Simply said, This Shattered World lacks the epicness and high-stakes plotline that I would expect from sci-fi novel. Al As far as star-crossed lovers romance goes, this book is amazing. All the good stuff happened towards the end of book and if it was not such a good end of book, I would rate this probably even lower.
In This Shattered World authors created ruthless, deadly and stone-faced heroine. I loved that, it was something that is not used very often in YA genre.
But giving us her POV from very beginning kind of negated that and ruined her initial reputation.
I was hoping that there would be space for big character development when it comes to Jubilee. But all I got was heroine who pretends to be something she is not and zero character development. Imagine if Darth Vader's reputation was just that, a reputation, and he was a big insecure softie from very beginning. Wouldn't that be boring? But I digress. All in all, this novel taught me that delicious haters-to-lovers romance itself can't make the book for me.
Banter itself doesn't make great book for me. Not when I don't love characters or when in detail world-building is missing.
Apr 14, Marie marked it as to-read Shelves: NEED more. Like I need air. I'm sad it's not Lilac and Tarver, but I really liked that the first book was a complete story. It was so nice finish a book without a cliffhanger. But I'm also sad at the same time, because we're not getting another Larver Tilac?
