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 rebels. Rebellion is in Flynn's blood. His sister died in the original uprising against the powerful corporations that terraformed Avon. These corporations make their fortune by terraforming uninhabitable planets across the universe and recruiting colonists to make the 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 base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war. As Flynn and Lee attempt to uncover the truth about Avon, they realize that there is a conspiracy on the planet that runs deeper than either of them could imagine, one that Lee's former commander Tarver Merendsen only scratched the surface of two years ago. The stunning second novel in the Starbound series is an unforgettable story of love and forgiveness in a world torn apart by war.

This is book 2 of the Starbound trilogy. If you haven't read book one, you can still enjoy this series, though you might miss some references and information that was given in the first book. Jubilee and Flynn are both likable characters and the author does a great job portraying both sides of the conflict and making the reader understand what is going on. This was a great science fiction book, but if you are expecting space travel in your science fiction, there isn't much of that here. Still it was a wonderful book and I look forward to reading book 3.

I think that from the first book, These Broken Stars, there was a reference to one of the characters here. I won't say who, but I found that tie very stunning, as it wasn't what I expected to be the bridge between these two separate books. Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac; two completely different people whose fates should never have allowed them to bond. Sounding familiar yet? Well, here on Avon there are the rebels, and those who are sent to crush the rebellion. I, along with many, wanted more of Lilac and Tarver at the end of the previous book. But here, I found another imperfect pair that both infuriates and excites my reader side. I actually finished this book really fast. 5/5 stars.

This book was absolutely nothing like These Broken Stars but they are both soooo equally amazing. The entire trilogy is about life in space, but the plots are so different. I really fell in love with Lilac and Tarver in the first book, so I was a little disappointed with how little they appeared in this Shattered World. I think that was the only thing that I found wrong with it, but I did hear that Lilac, Tarver, Jubilee and Flynn are supposed to make an appearance in the third book. Absolutely no inappropriate content. Also, if you are looking for a slow-burning romance, this series is the way to go.

This book really had a different feel from These Broken Stars, but once you get over that it's fun to read. Definitely a different perspective, and sometimes the whole rebel/rebellion/conspiracy concept got old, but overall it was an intense interesting read and worth the time.

I was really into the first book, These Broken Stars, and the concept of being lost in space. I sorta hoped that the authors would bring back Lilac and Tarver, but this was a good read, just not as much as I thought the first was.
