I am absolutely delighted to be participating in another tour for this captivating series! This Shattered World is such an amazing follow-up to These Broken Stars, and while it features new characters, favorites from the first book do make an appearance. ;0) But I promise, if you loved Tarver and Lilac, you're likely to love Jubilee and Flynn just as much...if not more!

For my stop, I've got an exclusive quote from This Shattered World, and the lovely Wendy at The Midnight Garden picked an especially starry one, just for me. =)

Isn't it just so lovely?!? I'm dying from the pretty!!!!!

The second installment in the epic Starbound trilogy introduces a new pair of star-crossed lovers on two sides of a bloody war.

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.

I've already read this book, and trust me, it was everything I'd been hoping this companion/sequel would be. You can check out my Review in a GIFfy for my thoughts.

Besides the awesome giveaway below, there's also an equally amazing preorder campaign:

I've already pre-ordered my copy! I can't wait to have this poster gracing my walls along with the one for These Broken Stars! =)

They are sure outer space is only a matter of time. Meagan, who is also the author of the Skylark trilogy, currently lives in Asheville, NC, while Amie lives in Melbourne, Australia. Although they currently live apart, they are united by their love of space opera, road trips, and second breakfasts.
