Waiting on Wednesday (#78): This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Book Two of the Starbound series
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication Date: December 23, 2014

Summary (from Goodreads):

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 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.



I loved the first book (who didn't!?), so I can't wait to read this one!

    1. Yep, I'm borrowing Kelly's, but I forgot that I had this scheduled (remember, I schedule WoW posts months in advance because they're so easy to make). Plus, I spent a lot of time looking for this perfect shade of pink. There are too many combinations of six letters/numbers - but I was on a roll with HTML :D

      Thank you! Good luck with the request!
