Praise for Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner’s STARBOUND series: “Absolutely brilliant. This is the sci fi I’ve been waiting for!”
“One of the most intense, thrilling, and achingly beautiful stories I’ve ever read. Kaufman and Spooner will break your heart with skilled aplomb, and you’ll thank them for it. Absolutely incredible! If I have to, I will come to your house and shove this book into your hands.”
“With rich, complex characters and a dynamic—and dangerous—new world, THESE BROKEN STARS completely transported me.”
“These Broken Stars is at its heart a love story. Voiced in alternate chapters, Lilac and Tarver are characters of depth, complexity, and strength, young people who alternately elicit the reader’s admiration, frustration, and sympathy. 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.”
