While the book is the first of a promised trilogy, it stands on its own as a testament to love, loyalty, courage, and the power of good over dystopian greed and perversity.
When the starship fails, the these broken stars amie kaufman becomes more than a simple love story. The setting becomes the secondary one of a planet, strange, beautiful, frightening.
And strangely alive, yet deserted. There are other stories, one that is darker, the story of a rich man's desire these broken stars amie kaufman control everything, including his highly competent daughter; of a planet wronged, and of sentience which cannot be explained by human logic.
The narrative is told in post constructionist style, with linear these broken stars amie kaufman being subverted. There are three narratives intermingled, first the voice of Tarver, next that of Miss Lilac La Roux, and interspaced between, the voice of the authorities, questioning the survivors in a script which it emerges is being conducted 'post incident'.
This is a highly enjoyable book, with engaging characters. The Adventure element will also appeal.
This Shattered World - Amie Kaufman
Although this book works well as a 'stand alone' these broken stars amie kaufman, I do hope to read the next two books in this trilogy. Young to be a Major but mature beyond his years — a hero. Lilac LaRoux, only daughter of the richest man in the universe - spoilt and overprotected.
Both are on board the Icarus, a luxury spaceliner of the LaRoux fleet, when the ship is pulled out of hyperspace. What follows is a story of survival, personal discovery and love.
These Broken Stars
The first in a trilogy from the authors: I loved this book, and the style of writing; each chapter from the perspective of one or other characters. The storytelling has a good pace and the snippets of interrogation at the end of each chapter gave different tone and sense of place, creating tension and drawing these broken stars amie kaufman reader into what I anticipate will these broken stars amie kaufman a compelling second book.
And there it is. Not that I don't like the cover, I love myself some glitter and pretty dresses as much as the next magpie, but you can probably guess why my hopes started to crumble.

I remember the first hardback edition of Shatter Me. I'm dystopian, I swear! I'm big, I'm bad and I remember how I told myself it would be fine. I mean, the description was promising hardcore dystopian fiction!
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner – review
It wouldn't lie to me, would it? I wrote a review about that.
It seems as though I was very wrong to judge this book by its cover. Is it even possible? One thing which I really liked about this book was the wonderful character development.
