This Shattered World - 
Amie Kaufman&Meagan Spooner

Released: November 19, 2014
Publisher: Allen&Unwin
SynopsisJubilee 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.

What I Thought: OH MY LORDY. So so good. The FEELS. I just can't even... Okay, so I am babbling like an idiot, because this book was just so incredible. Not quite a sequel per-say, but a companion novel to These Broken Stars, which revolves around the lives of Captain Lee Chase and Rebel leader Flynn Cormac. Destined as rivals finding the path as lovers. Sound familiar? Okay so it has some basic similarities to the previous novel, but the new setting, the new characters, the new situation all provide a completely different feel to the story. Action, betrayal, romance, confusion, deceit - it's a whirlwind adventure.

So what about Tarver and Lilac you ask? Well, I can't really give too much away, but I can say they do make an appearance. Not quite the same if you got way attached to them in the first novel, but Lee and Flynn will capture you in the same way they did.

Kaufman and Spooner have written yet another killer novel - together, they create worlds and relationships that are pure magic.
If you loved These Broken Stars, then you are going to fall in love again with This Shattered World. I would definitely recommend reading them in order, though the could be stand-alones, but there would be important things you miss.
Plus, if you haven't read it yet I don't think we can be friends.

The Good: Kaufman and Spooner are an incredible team and make you feel so many feels. Just as much love for this book as the first one!

The Bad: Yet another wait for the next book!!
