Previous Books in Series: These Broken Stars
I don't even think I could start to tell you how excited I was getting This Shattered World for review because These Broken Stars was one of my FAVORITE reads of last year and I could not wait to see how this companion novel not only progressed the story but *crosses fingers* connects our beloved Tarver and Lilac. (Sidenote: SWOONING just thinking about all the epic that was These Broken Stars but I digress) So, the story of Jubliee and Flynn is on Avon, a planet made of swamp and muck that makes most soldiers go rage crazy from a disease called Fury making the turnover of these soldiers quick. Jubliee is a Captain and has been on Avon for over a year which is unheard of but the Fury doesn't affect her. She's minding her own business in a bar when hey, hey, hey, she's kidnapped by a native of Avon--Flynn. From there, we move on to sacrifices and escapes, duty versus love, and doing what is right not doing what is easy. Le sigh.
If you love star-crossed love, fighting for what is right, shutting down an intergalactic oppressor, and ALL fans of the Starbound series...then this book is for you.
