It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

A timeless love story, THESE BROKEN STARS sets into motion a sweeping science fiction series of companion novels. The Starbound Trilogy: Three worlds. Three love stories. One enemy.

From the moment I first laid eyes on this cover I just felt in love with this book. I’m really not a fan reading sci-fi but I just couldn’t help it, the cover is just sooo pretty! Look at her dress and her hair! Isn’t it flawless? I’m really glad I decided to read this book because it is indeed out of this world! I really did enjoy reading this beauty.

Let me begin with the writing style. It is a master piece! Everything is described perfectly for you to picture it.

In reality, I do not have words to describe this book. You know when you first read Harry Potter and you are reading the wonders of Hogwarts and yet you do not have words to re-describe it? Well, yeah. This is the same.

When you read this book, everything becomes real. The characters become real.

I love how the main characters are attracted to each other from the beginning but their relationship takes time to develop. It is perfectly timed. I was grinning like a fool...

I love how Lilac, although she seems like a spoiled brat, just wants to be loved not for what she owns but who she really is.

“He didn’t know who I was. He wasn’t after my money, he wasn’t after my father’s business connection. He wasn’t after anything, except an evening with me”.

You really see her grow in her journey of survival. You will cheer for her!

And Tarver.

He is a dream. The perfect guy. He is hard-working, down to earth, and smoking hot. God, no matter how annoying Lilac was at first, I love how he was always looking out for her yet putting her in place at the same time.

“Miss LaRoux,” he said eventually, “I’ll do my best to protect you if you’ll let me. My duty demands that much. But I’m not going to sit here and die for you…”

These two are so different but they are perfect for each other. They learn to take care of each other in order to survive. They learn to trust each other; they learn to work as a team. I just love these two together.

If you like science-fiction, this one is for you. If you are not a fan of reading science-fiction, this one is also for you too! This book will give you all the feels. I loved it. This is quite the adventure waiting to be explored! I highly recommend this book.
