    One thought on “This Shattered World”

    1. 4.5*Romeo and Juliet in space like c'monnnn! This is a scifi I can get on board with. Didn't enjoy this quite as much as These Broken Stars but only by the teeniest fraction. It was still amazing!

    2. This review (and others) can be seen in all its proper formatting glory on my blog Beauty and the Bookshelf.Or 3.5 starsbut probably 4 stars.Note: You might be okay reading This Shattered World without reading the first book in the Starbound trilogy, These Broken Stars. You may understand things for the most part, but you'll see spoilers for the first book, which is why I'd recommend reading it first. This review shouldn't be spoilery, but I'll be mentioning some minor things from These Broken S [...]

    3. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like this book. 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. Jubilee (Lee) is a Captain on planet Avon <-- I ca [...]

    4. WAIT WAIT wait that's it? I AM SO NOT READY FOR LILAC AND TARVER'S STORY TO ENDNO WONDER THERE WAS NO CLIFFHANGER NOOOOOOOO NOOO NOOOOOGAHHARRRWURBLEEFOIEJ *indistinguishable noises* *froths at mouth*--------------------------------------------------------------------*These Broken Stars Review: /review/show*follow for more reviews

    5. The authors' decision to tell another story in the same world, but following different characters, is a really smart move in my opinion. Meagan Spooner stated, "Without being too spoilery, I think most readers would agree that there’s no more story left about Tarver and Lilac, given the events of the first book." And I completely agree. 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 capa [...]

    6. All the stars beyond the clouded skies of Avon! That’s how many this series deserves.This story is the definition of “beautiful”!I loved the characters, the plot, the turnarounds, the ties to “These Broken Stars” (both characters from the first book, squee!) – it was, simply put, alluring and edge-gripping and absolutely perfect!THIS SHATTERED WOLRD does not give you time to think about it, you just dive into it and stop breathing until you reach the last page. But trust me, you will [...]

    7. This book is the reason why I love the universe and space opera; there is just something about countless stars, planets, and moons that is absolutely romantic to me. The opportunities to get to know other worlds and situations while still retaining the things that make us human (and by that I mean the cultures and values we hold dear here on Earth) is definitely an interesting mix because it's so different while still so familiar.I mean, can you picture it? Mankind progressing so far techn [...]

    8. Rounded down to 4,5 starsthis 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 fightFlynn Cormac is a rebel, the one who made him like this is her sister's death.he had a sister but she was execu [...]

    9. I have a giveaway on the blog to win one paperback of This Shattered World! One day I plan to kidnap Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner so they can come and write books for me to read for the rest of my life.Let me tell you now: this is not a sequel to These Broken Stars. That's right, This Shattered World is a companion novel set in the same world in which we follow two seemingly dissimilar main leads, Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac. Jubilee is the perfect soldier and she knows it: strong, re [...]

    10. The people in these Starbound covers really need to get a gravity stabilizer, because jeez, twisting your arms around like that cannot be healthy. *narrows eyes* Wait a secondIs the guy in the cover the same one from These Broken Stars covery flipped around and with different clothes?

    11. Well, well, well, colour me surprised. This trilogy just chucked a Days of Blood & Starlight and went straight in for the raw, gore and desperation of war. Love story, this was not. We’re in deeper, darker terrain now. And I loved it. The thing, for those who’ve yet to read These Broken Stars, that you must know with the first book in this trilogy is that it was a love story; tragic, desperate and bounded by socioeconomic barriers, it was the tale of two most unalike souls being brought [...]

    12. 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. This book is what you THOUGHT the first book was going to be when picking it up and looking at the cover, if that makes ANY sense. I know These Broken Stars ended up being more of a survival story more than a space adventure and before it came out, the hype it was getting made it seem more like a spaceship/outerspace type of book. Th [...]

    13. So, I just finished THESE BROKEN STARS, and I want more. 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? Liver? Yeah, I don't know their couple name) story. But I'm happy at the same time. But yeah, the sadness is still there.

    14. glad this was my first book of 2015 :) it was super fun, and while I didn't love it as much as Book 1, I still really really enjoyed it. great characters, and Flynn is just adorable. can't wait for the 3rd book!! I wonder who the next star-crossed couple will bed of course, hoping to see Tarver and Lilac again. They were adorable in this 2nd installment, even though we didn't get to see them much!

    15. 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 [...]

    16. *3.75/5 stars*I honestly have no idea how to rate this book. It's between 3-4 stars. While this story was very enjoyable and fast paced read, it wasn't quite as good as These Broken Stars. I also felt a bit disconnected from the story and its characters at times (I missed the wit and laugh out loud humor that was between the duo in book one) - Though, I loved how Jubilee was such a tough, kickass gal and I 1000% admired her! The ship in These Broken Stars definitely remains my favourite from the [...]

    17. Rating: 5 StarsMy Opinion Of This Book: My, oh, my this book was beautiful. _____________________________________________________Buddy read this with one of my best friends on here, Ginny, and we both LOVED this book to bits.Writing a sequel as great as the first is super hard, but Amie & Meagan totally nailed it. I really can't praise this series enough, they're just such gorgeous books. THE GOOD.●Captain Chase (Jubilee): Darn is Captain Chase one of the strongest female leads. Instantly, [...]

    18. This Shattered World by Megan Spooner and Amie Kaufman was brilliant. It had an excellent premise, a strong storyline and pleasant romance. The only thing that came in the way of that fifth star was the predictability.Flynn and Jubilee are sort of like Lilac and Tarver, only here, unlike the latter, they focus more on saving their planet than kissing each other. The plot continues from the first book in this series, and we get closer to defeating LaRoux (Yay!). We also see the lovestruck couple [...]

    19. I loved this book in all it's starry glory. But I liked These Broken Stars better. HEY. I don't mean to compare them! But I think TBS set up an extremely high standard and it's next to impossible to impress me like TBS did. I was literally blown off my socks (especially with the Lilac twist at the end of TBS!). This Shattered World had a very strong military vibe (more so than TBS) and it dug more into conspiracy theories and politics. All very interesting and wonderfulbut you know what it didn' [...]

    20. Rebel Boy + Soldier Girl; reminds me of Day & June.Can't wait for this. The summary sounds like my type of thing.Update: 06/24/14Okay, I'm still excited about this. Because you know, I love star-crossed lovers, but somehow the blurb sounds generic? And I'm not a fan of the cover.

    21. This is the second book in the Starbound series and although it was not quite as good as the first it was still excellent. It was certainly all action from the first page to the last and the romance took second place most of the time. Nevertheless Lee and Flynn made a delightful couple despite all the obstacles in their way. I very much enjoyed the brief visit into the story from Lilac and Tarver and hope it means that all four of our heroes might make it into book 3. Altogether a very successfu [...]

    22. I was pretty skeptical going into this but equally excited because I LOVED THESE BROKEN STARS SO MUCH. I was scared my expectations and the second book curse would just make this disappointing, BUT this was the complete opposite for me! Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner have done it again you guys! THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING. The plot/conflict was fleshed out even more from the first book. We find out so much more about the mystery of the first book and LaRoux Industries and the authors weave the new c [...]

    23. This is no where near as good as book one was. Not even a little bit close.I will say, the plot is much better and more interesting. The civilians vs soldiers on this really run down planet. All interesting, but the book just isn't as good.Jubilee and Flynn in my opinion have no chemistry. I didn't see, nor will I see, the progression of their romantic storyline. Not sure really when they went from enemies to like romance partners but clearly I missed that section. Their romance got old after a [...]
