These Broken Stars, by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

these broken starsNora shares this review:

In a world filled with dozens of planets to inhabit, hover trays, and stars as far as the eye can see, the Icarus, an enormous spaceship zooming through hyperspace, carries the most lavish and privileged people in the galaxy. Among those tens of thousands of passengers is Lilac LaRoux, the red-haired daughter of the wealthiest man in the universe, and Tarver Merendsen, a war hero who feels quite out of place on the Icarus. As soon as Tarver picks up Lilac’s glove, they click like a button.

After Lilac is reminded by her cousin, Anna, that Tarver and Lilac could never be involved romantically due to his lack of money, the ship vibrates with a jolt. A quick announcement informs everyone to immediately make their way to an emergency pod.

After Lilac’s tumble over a railing, Lilac and Tarver end up inside a crew’s pod as the ship is sucked into a planet’s gravitational pull. Fortunately, Lilac manages to detach their pod from the ship, and they are forced to watch as the Icarus crumbles and falls.

As the pair make their journey across the planet, they seem to be the only survivors, so they work together to trek across the planet to find help. However, it seems like Tarver and Lilac aren’t alone on the planet, and there is mystery lurking around every corner. But they first must overcome their disdain for each other to survive on a mysterious, perilous planet.

I absolutely loved this book. The characters were phenomenal, the setting was beautiful, and the plot was completely unexpected with a major twist at the end. I couldn’t put this book down, and now I’m impatiently waiting for the sequel!

If you are a fan of sci-fi, you absolutely must pick up this book. It incorporates sci-fi, romantic, and a bit of supernatural elements into one to create a fantastic novel!

Read These Broken Stars to see if Tarver and Lilac can make it over rolling plains, jagged mountains, and mounds of debris to reach their final goal: rescue.
