Overview

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.

The first in a sweeping science fiction trilogy, These Broken Stars is a timeless love story about hope and survival in the face of unthinkable odds.

Publishers Weekly
12/02/2013
On the surface, this trilogy opener is a fairly standard opposites-attract romantic adventure, when a spoiled socialite and a seasoned soldier are stranded on a mysterious planet after their luxury spaceliner malfunctions and crashes. Major Tarver Merendsen tries to protect Lilac LaRoux, "the richest girl in the galaxy," as they journey across an inhospitable wilderness in search of rescue. Though their personalities clash and their social status separates them, they develop feelings for one another. But the further they travel, the more questions they find regarding their new home. Strange visions and apparitions give the story a chilling edge, and a late revelation elevates these developments into entirely new territory. In a collaboration that, at times, evokes Lost, Titanic, and Romancing the Stone, Spooner (Skylark) and newcomer Kaufman do an excellent job of keeping their story from falling into clichéd romantic territory. Although the constant arguing between Tarver and Lilac and their internal angst can be tiring, the external conflicts and underlying mysteries will keep readers guessing (and turning the pages). Ages 12–up. Agent: Adams Literary. (Dec)
From the Publisher
Overdone characterizations threaten to overwhelm an exciting outer-space adventure. When the richest girl in the galaxy and a burned-out war hero from lowly beginnings are the only survivors of a spaceship crash that kills 50,000 people, they grudgingly cooperate to survive. Their escape pod lands far from the ship, so Lilac and Tarver trek through cold and rain to reach the main crash site. This unknown planet has been terraformed, but frighteningly, there are no colonists-or anyone else. When they reach it, the ship's a hazardous tomb of rotting bodies. The jam-packed plot incorporates telepathy, energy-matter conversion, an unknown life form, an explosion, two cave-ins and a temporary death. Lilac and Tarver alternate first-person narration; ratcheting up the suspense are single-page chapters in which an unknown authority interrogates Tarver. Less successful is the seemingly endless (and textually forced) clashing between the protagonists. He's bitter and occasionally rough (in the throes of a fever, he hits her); she's an entitled heiress whose pale, white skin warrants mention no matter who's narrating. It's a thin, annoying line between love and hate (guess which wins) that makes the adventure elements vie for attention. Tipping between science fiction and fantasy, this series opener will catch readers who enjoy melodramatic sparring and those who can look past it; for outer-space thrills with moral complexity, see Beth Revis' Across the Universe series. (Science fiction. 13 & up)—Kirkus

When the universe's most luxurious spaceliner mysteriously falls out of hyperspace and crash-lands on an alien planet, sixteen-year-old heiress Lilac LaRoux and eighteen-year-old war hero Tarver Merendson are the sole survivors. Certain that help, or at least a wreckage crew, is on the way, Tarver wants to leave the safety of their escape pod to trek across unknown territory to the crash site of the doomed ship. With the inappropriately dressed but surprisingly resilient Lilac in tow, he starts the journey to find the situation stranger and more dangerous than he expected: the terraformed planet is oddly abandoned, the wreckage is miles away on the other side of a mountain pass, and Lilac is starting to hear voices and hallucinate. Lilac, meanwhile, wants to prove herself more than just a damsel in distress, and she uncovers a shocking secret that might explain her visions, the planet's emptiness, and even the ship's demise. With shades of Titanic alongside bits of Robinson Crusoe, this engaging read offers a compelling survival story and science fiction adventure with a heavy dose of romance. Narration in alternating points of view gives insight into Tarver and Lilac's miscommunications while allowing readers to revel in the slow burn of their growing attraction. At the same time, brief snippets of Tarver's eventual debrief provide evocative hints about the characters' futures but manage not to spoil any of the plot's twists or surprises. As class-line-crossing lovers and deserted-island stories go, no new ground is being broken here, but the novel brings together a strong mix of familiar tropes and popular storylines for a thoroughly entertaining result. Loose ends and unanswered questions, despite an otherwise satisfying conclusion, leave the door open for expected sequels. AM—BCCB

As the passengers and crew of the Icarus cruise through hyperspace, spoiled and aloof rich girl Lilac LaRoux drops a glove before war hero Major Tarver Merendsen only to rebuff him later. Yet during a horrifying accident, Lilac and Tarver escape the death-spiraling Icarus, eventually finding themselves stranded on a strange, terraformed yet abandoned planet. Their prickly relationship continues because both realize they have no future together even if they are rescued: Lilac is the daughter of the universe's richest man, while Tarver is a lowly soldier. As they struggle to save their lives and maintain their sanity, despite disturbing whispers and strange appearances and disappearances of things lost and treasured, the dire circumstances break down the barriers between them. Though Kaufman and Spooner use the pair's survival in an alien environment to propel the narrative, 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. - Frances Bradburn—Booklist

5Q 4P J S Major Tarver Merendsen is a war hero-young, handsome, and just dangerous enough to send all of the rich socialites on board the Icarus into a tizzy. All except one: Lilac Laroux is the only daughter of the richest man in the galaxy, and with her father's guards watching her every move, she cannot afford to let her guard down. If there is one thing she is good at, it is cutting men down to size, especially boys from the lower classes who should know better than to aim for the attentions of the richest girl in the galaxy. When tragedy warrants an emergency evacuation, it is fate that brings the two together. It is too bad that Lilac is the last person with whom Tarver would want to be stuck, but when their escape pod lands on an abandoned planet, curses become blessings as each hardship brings the two closer. As survival instincts kick in and their old life falls away, they build a bond that seems to be able to overcome death itself, but can it survive her father's expectations? Maybe, but her father might be the least of their worries as the secrets of the planet are revealed and soon they know too much. Kaufman and Spooner couple an epic romance with dazzling science fiction in a tale that will appeal to lovers of both genres. This is a must-read, though some sexual situations may be cause for a second glance when considering younger readers.-Shanna Miles.—VOYA

Gr 7 Up First-time author Kaufman and coauthor Spooner begin their science-fiction romance in familiar territory and then chart a course that goes to new heights. Eighteen-year-old Major Tarver Merendsen is a decorated hero traveling on the luxury starliner Icarus. Sixteen-year-old Lilac LaRoux is the daughter of the galaxy's richest man, owner of the Icarus, and terraformer of numerous planets. Everything comes crashing down when an unknown force ejects the starliner from hyperspace and sends them into the gravity well of a planet. Tarver is able to get them aboard an escape pod but it is, surprisingly, Lilac who is able to hotwire the pod's malfunctioning electronics to allow it to blast free of the falling ship. They survive the descent but each feels obligated to treat the other harshly Lilac to shield Tarver from the potential wrath of her father and Tarver to urge the pampered princess to safety. As they come to rely upon one another during their journey across the unfamiliar planet, they can no longer deny their feelings for one another. When Lilac begins hearing whispers and seeing visions, she comes to believe that there is other sentient life on the planet. Then she dies, but neither she nor the story ends there. The authors begin with star-crossed lovers and a crash-landing survival story but add excitingly original material to these tropes to create a wonderful tale that should appeal to both teen and adult readers.

    Sometimes it happens that I get bitten by the hype monster. Once

    Sometimes it happens that I get bitten by the hype monster. Once in a while the hype monster disappoints (case in point, Veronica Roth’s “Divergent”), but most of the time, it leads me to a book I love so much, I want to shout from the highest mountains for everyone to read it! Yes, my friends, today I want to shout from the mountains that These Broken Stars is the one book you just have to add to the top of your reading list…like in yesterday already!

    The first time I saw this book, I was won over by the gorgeous cover, but the synopsis indicating that this is a love story in space, made me go “meh”. I’m not one for romance, okay? Much less romance in space. But following all my favorite blogs via email, I noticed one after the other five-star review for this book and I thought to myself, “you’ve got to be kidding me”. Then I also thought that if my favorite reviewers enjoy it, it can’t be that bad. So I set out to get myself a copy of this much-talked-about book and I jumped right in. And you know what? All those five-star reviews? They were spot-on. I was completely blown away by this romance and now I want you, yes YOU, to read it. No, no, I don’t want to hear it. I don’t care if you like romance or sci-fi or not. You HAVE to read this book! You’ll never be able to tell it was written by two authors on complete opposite sides of the world. Folks, this book is simply phenomenal.

    One reviewer compared this book to Titanic. Wait, before you roll your eyes. I’ll agree that in some ways it did remind me of the Titanic movie, but it’s also a completely original and extraordinary story all on its own. You’ll just love Lilac and Tarver! I did.

    ~The bandages look clean. “Did you wrap my hand up?”
    “Mmm. You didn’t like it much. You have the foulest mouth I’ve ever encountered, Major. I didn’t even recognize half the languages you can swear in. I’m glad I’m not one of your soldiers. Still, it was rather educational.”~

    Lilac took a while longer to grow on me than Tarver did, but once she showed me what she was made of, this girl turned out to be precisely the type of female lead I wish to see more of in YA and romance novels. She’s tough, but gracefully and femininely so.  

    ~Crash-landed on an unknown planet, a black eye on the way, and the contents of her stomach now in the underseat storage locker, and she still feels the need to act like she’s above it all.~

    At first it was easy to believe that Lilac is a spoilt, naïve heiress. But once disaster strikes and the Icarus is headed for certain doom (and I don’t say this lightly), we get to see that Lilac is nothing like what we’ve seen of her so far. And as the story progresses, so much more of her character is revealed and I liked her more and more. I pretty much fell in love with Tarver right from the start. He’s a gentleman and war hero who hasn’t let fame gone to his head. Lilac and Tarver are literally from different worlds and different backgrounds, and like Romeo and Juliet they can never be together. But then tragedy strikes and they both end up being the only survivors on an abandoned planet. Or, at least, they think they’re the only ones on the planet. So, now you have this spoiled socialite and an experienced soldier - two people who can’t stand each other - stranded on a strange planet with only each other for company, and who have to rely on each other for their survival. You can only imagine the laughs that could possibly ensue with the pairing of two such different characters.

    ~It’s only through an exhausting combination of frequent rests and liberal insults that we make it through the next few hours. I could tell myself that I’m doing it because she’ll get back to her feet just to spite me-but the truth is, I really just want to piss her off.~

    After they crash-landed, these two hardly get along. And because this is quite a lengthy read, we get to spend some time with Lilac and Tarver in their quest for survival trying to make it to the fallen Icarus in hopes of finding other survivors. And as the days pass, we get to know them more and more.

    ~This stupid, arrogant boy. How old is he? He can’t be more than a couple of years older than me, yet he acts like he’s got a lifetime of experience just because he liberated one tiny outpost once. A one-trick pony with a chest full of medals.~

    Layers are being peeled away as Major Merendsen and Ms LaRoux gradually fall in love. And that was the selling point for me: the gradual romance. There were no pages and chapters going on and on about how these two lust after each other or how hot the one thinks the other one is. No. They delve deeper into each others’ characters, and that’s how they eventually fall in love.

    But simply a love-story this is not. This is a balanced, superbly plotted, well-rounded tale of survival, discovery, tragedy, compassion, and mystery with a hefty amount of heartwarming feels at its core. It’s not just Tarver and Lilac falling in love, but the reader falling for and rooting for these two beautiful, wonderful, far-from-perfect characters. Don’t go telling me that sci-fi is not your genre of choice. There is no Star Trek-ish or Scotty-beam-me-up elements in this novel. It’s just two people trying to survive in a world somewhat different to our own. And geez, are they put through the mill! For those readers who appreciate a few good twists and a memorable tearjerker, I can assure you there are a couple of mammoth twists and a good gut-wrenching-sobs cry hiding behind this stunning cover. Oh, and another few tears right at the end for good measure.

    After finishing These Broken Stars I understood without a smidgen of doubt why others are writing such lengthy gushing reviews for this book. I just feel like going on and on and on about this masterpiece! Honestly, I finished it in one day. I read until my vision blurred and still I couldn’t put it down. No mushy romance, no content that needs an age restriction. Just a slow developing breathtaking tale of love and endurance in a time far into the future, but with none of the alien elements that would alienate (see what I did there?) non sci-fi readers such as myself from reading this amazing book. Just do me a favor…no, do yourself a favor and add These Broken Stars to your reading list asap!

    It¿s hard to get past the absolutely stunning cover, believe me

    It’s hard to get past the absolutely stunning cover, believe me I know. The cover of These Broken Stars is all kinds of perfect with it’s absolutely stunning starry background, beautiful red headed girl in a dress that I’m sure every girl is envious of, and of course the deliciously handsome boy she’s reaching towards. Once you look past that and dive into this sci-fi-tastic story, it is nothing less than a gripping adventure. I absolutely loved it.




    Science fiction has always been one of my favorite genres. I'm really not sure why because science has never been my subject, but I think I just adore the ideas of space, and medicine, and anything else that goes along with sci-fi. I loved how Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner weave sci-fi and supernatural, it makes for a perfect combo.




    Alternating viewpoints is something I have always loved in a book as well, and in These Broken Stars, not only is it needed, but it done flawlessly. I absolutely loved being inside both of our characters heads, of course some parts we’re harder than others. We meet Major Tarver Merendsen first and he is every bit delicious as a male lead can be. He’s a war hero, tall, built, dark hair and eyes and as Lilac notices, can fill a suit perfectly. He just proves over and over how much of an all-american-boy-self-sacrificing thing he's got going on.




    With Lilac LaRoux, I absolutely loved seeing her character change and grow. From the first time we meet her, you can tell she's a tough chick and not exactly happy with the world she's in. I loved watching her change through out the journey, showing her tech savvy side, her strength, and at the end her throw-back-in-your-face attitude. Her and Tarver together I just absolutely loved.




    There were so many parts of this story that I just adored, parts where I got nervous, parts where my heart was melting, and one moment that almost broke my heart. If you enjoy sci-fi, dangerous and romantic journeys, or solving mysteries... You'll love this book. They say to never judge a book by it's cover, but I'm judging this one because I think the story inside is just as great as it's cover.

    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Disney Book Group and Netgalley.)
    Tarver is a decorated soldier and a war hero. Lilac is daughter of one of the most powerful men in the universe.
    They meet on board the Icarus – a giant spaceship capable of holding 50,000 passengers, but not capable of going through a planet’s atmosphere. The Icarus is a space-dwelling vehicle only, made by Lilac’s father’s company.

    When the Icarus is unexpectedly pulled out of hyperspace, everybody heads to the escape pods, only for the escape pods to not launch due to a surge or electricity. Suddenly the Icarus is crashing, and the odds of survival are low.

    Lilac and Tarver survive due to both of their quick thinking, but now they’re the only living inhabitants of a partly-terraformed planet, and it seems that rescue is not on the way.
    Can Lilac and Tarver find a way to survive? Can they find a way to signal help? And can they find a way to live with each other in the mean time?


    I don’t think I have ever read anything quite like this, and I really enjoyed it!

    Lilac was an interesting character in that even though most would have thought that she lived a charmed life, she had suffered at the hands of her father, and had had to find ways to live with the things she knew. She did come across as a little spoiled at times, and had a bit of a diva attitude at times as well, but was actually remarkably able to adapt to the difficult circumstances she found herself in, and really showed what she was like on the inside rather than the outside.

    Tarver was also an interesting character. Firstly because he pushed Lilac to be better, and secondly because he never lost hope that that was possible. He took a difficult situation and somehow made them survive, which was nothing short of remarkable.

    I liked the storyline in this book. It was just so unique, and the mysteries and surprises just kept coming and coming. This was not your average dystopian, or survival story, and at times I really didn’t want to put this down.

    The pace in this one was quite slow, and the middle did drag a little bit. This didn’t last long though, and the mysteries were enough to keep me interested, and keep me wanting to read. I liked the mysteries, I liked the romance, I liked the suspense and I even liked the occasional creepy moment. This book seemed to have a bit of everything, and I even found myself crying at one particularly sad moment, which very rarely happens to me! So glad I wasn’t on the bus at the 75% mark or I think I would have got some really funny looks!

    The ending of this was also surprising, and I liked the way we got snippets of Tarver being questioned at the end of each chapter, so we knew that they would eventually find their way home.

    If this book reminded me of anything, I’d suggest it reminded me of the TV show ‘Lost’, with the unexplainable happenings and the inability to know what would happen next. I thought the whole thing was really nicely done though, and it will be interesting to see what the second story in the series has in store.
    Overall; a truly unique and enjoyable sci-fi/dystopian/mystery story, with a touch of romance.
    9 out of 10.

    Loved it

    I was telling someone the other day that I have been mainly reading YA books for the last year---especially fantasy. That it was mainly because I found adult Sci-fi fantasy had gone a bit stale, with every story line seeming to be the same thing over and over again, and with the same tired tropes. The same can be said about most genres. We kind of repeat the same story over and over again for everything, but it is how you tell it. Adult Fantasy ad hit a rut in how it told it. But I have found that a lot of YA books these days tend to break out of that. There are all kinds of interesting new ways that they are telling the same story. This book was a good demonstration of that. It had all the old tropes:

    1. Poor little rich girl
    2. Poor low class boy in love with her
    3. Evil daddy who thinks no one is good enough for his baby girl
    4. Star-crossed love

    But then they threw in the interesting things.


    1. Lilac is a very good/strong female character. People seems to think being strong means the girl never has to be scared; always has to be bad ass and never needs any help, much less from a man! But, no...being strong could mean knowing when you are in over your head and asking for help. Having the mental strength to survive in the harshest environments and never giving up...even if sometimes you cry and need to sit and gather yourself for a minute...you get back up and you go on. Being strong, is being confident in your abilities and not letting anyone dismiss them or you when it counts. Lilac is all of those things, so I found her a very food female character, even though she cries about her dresses and shoes...she shows up when it counts. And based on her action on the planet, I fully bought why Tarver would like her, and would be impressed by her. To me the hero of this book is Lilac, not Tarver, even though we spend more time in his head. She figures out how to get them unattached from that falling ship and away; she figures out how to send a distress signal out; she learns how to open the door; she saves Tarver time and again. And she did it again in the end with her father. I was very impressed by her.

    2. There was no damn love triangle. And the romance was believable. I totally bought it.....since we spend the whole book building their relationship piece by piece. The only time I was annoyed was when Lilac kept insisting on dying on that planet and sacrificing herself for Tarver. I'm glad he was stubborn and despite what he says...he is very smart. He proved himself in the end.

    3. It was all set in a Sci Fi setting. I loved the slow build of the mysterious planet and why it was abandoned, as well as the final reveal of what resided on that planet and its link to Lilac. I loved the quick glimpses of the world they lived in: The separation of the lower classes from the elite. The corporation and their total ownership of the planets---as well how the system is made to benefit them in every way. It will be interesting to see more of the world in further books. Based on this I would say....I look forward to reading more from this author

    Romance A+
    Story: A
    Science: B+ (I always get confused with all the science mumbo jumbo jargon at some point.)

    Pretty good.

    I'd like to know why the nook version is $18!?! It's on kindle for $10 and even the hardcover is only $12... seems ridiculous to overpay by so much.

    Sorry it took me a while to get to this, but I'm afraid I needed

    Sorry it took me a while to get to this, but I'm afraid I needed some time to calm down before I could embark on the journey that is this review. By that, I basically mean being in the right state of mind to return my thoughts to this book and be impartial. I'm currently failing miserably. A friend of mine had read this book months ago and told me it was absolutely magnificent, and I was worried I'd be disappointed because when people overhype books it's more often than not a let down for me.
    This one wasn't.




    I'm personally not really into sci-fi books, or at least I wasn't. But thanks to Doctor Who I've slowly started to get into the genre. Interestingly enough, this book reminded me of three particular episodes of the aforementioned show. In my head it's divided into three parts. The first one, reminded me so much of the Titanic episode of Doctor Who's Christmas Special. The second one reminded me of the episode in season four where the Doctor wanted to visit a planet Midnight I think? I can't bring myself to rewatch the episode because it terrifies me, but yes, that's exactly how I felt in that part of the book - terrified. The last part reminded me of the Charles Dickens episode in season one with the rift. I know this is a weird way to say it but, these exact elements of likeness are what made me love the book. And hate it. And broke my heart. Basically everything I feel whilst watching the show.




    Maybe the show inspired the fabulous authors? I wasn't part of the #TBSParty on Twitter, but I got to read some of the tweets and I think it's safe to say that.




    Now, onto the book. It was co-written, and according to the dynamic duo, each one handled a point of view. In which case Amie handled Tarver's and Meagan handled Lilac's. Personally I preferred Tarver's. It had nothing to do with the writing though, both authors were incredible with that, portraying the characters so amazingly, the way they dived into this world and explained it to the readers was pretty clever and meticulous. It's just that sadly at the start of the book Lilac was the embodiment of everything I hated in a female lead nowadays. However her character improved remarkably by the end of the book. There were parts in between the chapters where someone is interviewing Tarver, I'm not sure who exactly was writing those parts, but I did love them most, because Tarver's absolutely hilarious. I mean, his wry humor even whilst being interviewed and bullied into admitting in details what happened to him in this traumatizing life altering predicament he was in, he still held his own and did his part to absolutely infuriate his interrogators. They had it coming though, and they did bug me.




    The first thing that came to mind for both myself and a friend was the name of the space liner: Icarus. I don't know about you, but I think it's one of the worst name to name anything you want to remain afloat or on it's axis. Something you don't want to either drown, crash or break. Like calling a ship nowadays Titanic. Personally, I think the passengers should have seen their imminent death coming, I know I did. One of the things I had a hard time with was a couple of long lulls mainly due to the story having only two characters for a large part of the book, but that in no way diminishes from the book's ingenuity.




    The story wasn't one of those quick simple reads in which you can be detached and just be entertained by it, if that's what you're looking for in this story, then I'm afraid you need to look elsewhere. This story will drag you in, keep you there, torture you to so many extents, rip your heart out over and over again, make you experience a myriad of feelings before returning you back a completely changed person. I know that for a fact. And yes, the lovely ladies had intended that. You're going to love it, and hate it.




    The best part about this book - okay if you ignore all the heartache - is that it gives you closure. I couldn't handle it at all if after all of that I didn't get closure. Seriously. As for what happens next in the series? It's going to be good.




    Okay guys, I am now off to return to my recovery process. I still absolutely love this book though. No matter what I just said.




    Rating: 5/5

    If you like Sci-Fi then you'll love this.

    I loved the characters in this book and how they developed so well with the story. I'll admit there was some twist and turns that I DID NOT SEE COMING but it was worth the read. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Thank you to the authors for writing what I'd classify as a perfect story with a beginning, middle and satisfying ending. This syfy setting will appeal to lovers of survival, romance and adventure. The book begins with the destruction of a spaceliner carrying 50,000 citizens including the richest young girl in the universe. Her life is saved by a young officer and they crash land stranded and alone on an uninhabitated planet in uncharted space. He is born from a lower class...she is from the privileged few. Sparks fly and emotions flare in this dangerous situation where class no longer matters when it comes to survival. I found the story pulled me into another world where I stayed until the book was finished. These writers are skilled and I look forward to reading more of their books. Hats off to you both...I feel like I truely finished a satisfying meal...including desert. Jp

    My initial thoughts when I saw this book made me think of Acros

    My initial thoughts when I saw this book made me think of Across the Universe. I'm not big on space and sci-fi, so I wasn't sure I wanted to read this one. So I kind of forgot about. I took a second look after a few positive reviews came in and decided maybe it might be something I would like. I'm glad I did because this turned out to be one of the better books I read in 2013!

    Lilac and Tarver are about as different as can be. I liked them both immensely. I think that I might not have liked Lilac if we only had Tarver's point of view. She comes across exactly how one might think the daughter of the richest man in the universe would. But in all honesty she's behaving how society and the world expects her to behave. Deep down she's smart and wants to be recognized for something other that her father. Tarver is young and being recognized for a military feet that most soldiers never obtain. But, he's still a little green when it comes to how to behave with upper society. When you throw these two together on a deserted planet, you can bet sparks are going to fly.

    I admired how Lilac tries to keep up with Tarver. She doesn't want to be the rich girl in a gown and high heels traipsing through unfamiliar terrain. She wants Traver to see her as she sees herself. Throughout their journey to the wreckage of the Icarus and then to an abandoned outpost building, she proves herself over and over again. She's more than just her daddy's girl. Tarver was harder for me to pin down. He's all business. It's been trained into him and he doesn't seem to have time for the girly and snobbery that he believes radiate off of Lilac.

    There's more than enough actions to go along with the romance in this story. There's the voices only Lilac can hear. Is she going crazy? Or is there truly something on this seemingly deserted planet. Tarver ends up in a delirious and semi-conscious state that Lilac has to figure out how to nurse him out of. And what exactly is behind the locked door at the outpost building? The biggest shocker of them all happens here. I really could not believe that it did. I was ready to put the book down at that point.

    I ended up being completely impressed with this book. With how the events unfolded, I have no idea were this story can go next. I wonder how Lilac and Tarver proceed?

    Oh My Gosh!

    I can not believe how good this book is, I tore through the pages. If I could I wouldve given it all the stars in the world. I love watching the characters change, this book did contain romance but too much, just the right amount. Do yourself a favor and read this book. IT IS AMAZING! EVEN IF YOU DONT LIKE ROMANCE OR SY-FY READ THIS BOOK.....please, you will not regret it. And I am pretty positve that there will be a second and a third maybe even forth book to follow! AHHH! I LOVE IT!

    The story begins with a very Titanic feel to it. I never would'v

    The story begins with a very Titanic feel to it. I never would've thought of a luxury ship in space, but that's exactly where this ship is. Lilac is rich and spoiled and Tarver is a young war hero. Together, they escape the doomed ship and end up stranded alone on a foreign, deserted planet, where they must make a journey for help.

    Lilac is a great character, although I didn't like her at first. She does what she has to do to keep her father's reputation where he wants it to be. When she is forced to stand on her own, her many facets really come to life and we get to know who she really is and to see her great courage and strength.

    Tarver. He's cynical and good-looking, but he does whatever he can to survive and to help Lilac do the same. He's a good compliment to Lilac and is able to turn on the military mode in an instant, which helps them out. I really liked his character and his drive, especially when his shell is cracked and we get to see the real Tarver.

    There were many strange things that happened that had me curious, confused, and eager to learn what was going on. There is so much creativity placed in the events and it was fascinating to see it all unfold, especially the twists. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to read more about this place.

    Content: moderate language (a few words used a lot, especially at the beginning); moderate romance (kissing, implied intimate relationship--no details); moderate violence (deaths especially).

    Tarver Merendsen would be quite happy to be anywhere but on boar

    Tarver Merendsen would be quite happy to be anywhere but on board the Icarus. Being on the luxury spaceliner is certainly easy with finely appointed public areas and beautiful people everywhere. But it is also claustrophobic with cameras and gossips everywhere eager for a sighting of the famously young and heroic Major Merendsen. If Tarver had known his actions on Avon would lead to this kind of attention he might have made very different decisions while dealing with the rebels on the terraformed planet.




    As the daughter of the richest man in the universe, Lilac LaRoux knows all about terraforming new planets and the unrest that sometimes come with colonization. She knows more about space travel and technology than is seemly for a girl of her station. She also knows that it would be very, very unwise to have anything to do with an upstart military man like Tarver. So Lilac does what she always does and pushes him away.




    Unfortunately that doesn't matter much when the Icarus is pulled out of hyperspace and crashes.




    Suddenly Lilac and Tarver are thrown together on a seemingly abandoned planet.




    With no one but each other, this unlikely pair builds a grudging respect and even friendship. As their relationship turns into something more than either could have imagined, Lilac and Tarver's dreams of a life together are derailed by the strange mysteries on the planet and the impending threat of rescue in These Broken Stars (2013) by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.




    These Broken Stars is the first book in Kaufman and Spooner's Starbound trilogy (which functions as a set of companion books each featuring different narrators).




    This book is written in alternating first person narrations as Tarver and Lilac tell their story.




    The dual narration structure is used to excellent effect here to highlight Tarver and Lilac's changing opinions of each other as well as to examine key plot points from multiple views. Although Tarver and Lilac's voices are not always as distinct as they should be, the narrative is done so well that it is a minor problem at best.




    The bond between the characters builds organically to create a romance with an extremely solid foundation based on mutual respect as well as affection. Unfortunately despite these stellar protagonists and a strong plot, the latter part of the novel does drag in places. Ultimately, however, the story does build to a stunning conclusion that will leave readers eager to see more of the world Kaufman and Spooner have created.




    These Broken Stars is an atmospheric sci-fi story with hints of mystery and romance. Tarver and Lilac are both self-aware characters with as much agency as spunk. Lilac, a tech-smart girl, is a particularly satisfying character to watch as she comes into her own after the crash of the Icarus. An excellent and action-packed novel for science fiction fans.

    A beautiful story!

    I picked this up on a whim, because the cover art was gorgeous and the back cover plot summary was intriguing. But I must say this story definitely surprised me in a million wonderful ways! It took several turns that I wasn't expecting and that made it really hard to put the book down! These two authors created some fleshed out, amazing characters with a beautiful story. I would definitely recommend this book!

    Excellent!

    I'm not one for outer space stories, but this was amazing! I really enjoyed the main characters in the beginning of a series that reminds me of an intergalactic Hunger Games style plot. A must read for those who crave stories of survival and love. Excellent language with perfect flow. Descriptive landscapes and events will keep you hanging on to every word. 5 stars all the way!!!

    5 Sizzling Stars THESE BROKEN STARS was a sweeping, beautifully

    5 Sizzling Stars

    THESE BROKEN STARS was a sweeping, beautifully enchanting, epically wonderful, bombshell of a book! I absolutely loved it!! I honestly fell head over heels for this book. From the slow burning romance, to the unknown mysterious of the planet, and the survival mode that just made our characters stronger, I was lulled into a unforgettable adventure that I just wanted to relive over and over again!!

    I was swept away by the beautiful writing, forbidden romance, mysterious plant, and two different people trying to survive in a different kinda world. All while every struggle they endure, the more they fall in love and grow an unbreakable bond!!! Beautiful, absolutely beautiful!!!

    I LOVED both the main characters, Lilac and Tarver. But I have to admit, at first Lilac annoyed the hell out of me. She was rich, spoiled, and sure of herself, and it drove me insane! But I guess that's to be expected with being the daughter if the richest man in the universe, but it was still annoying nevertheless. But as the book progressed, and Lilac came to see a new world, a world that doesn't revolve around her, she began to grow, and mature, and be a pretty great protagonist!!! She did a 360 and turned into a different person--an awesome person, a person that many would look up to. And I loved watching her growth, and her reactions to all the events that were unfolding around her. And watching the new Lilac handle it differently then the old Lilac would.

    And Tarver, ooh, Tarver, HOT DAM he was fine!!! He had my feelings in an uproar, all discombobulated, unsure of anything when it was time for his POV. He had this strong, determined, sure of everything around him, take charge and get the job done personality that I was instantly drawn too, and couldn't get enough of!! And by the end, both Lilac and Tarver were different people all together, and I loved them both so much more!!!!

    THE PLOT

    Lilac LaRoux is the daughter of the most powerful man in the universe. She is well known and avoided by boys. Because they all know to approach Lilac LaRoux is a death sentence in the making. Until one day, while drifting in hyperspace aboard the Icarus that holds 50,000 souls, one boy approaches her, one stupid, stupid boy, and Lilac's world is changed forever...

    Lilac knows mingling with lower class citizens is asking for trouble, and she knows this from personal experience, and she refuses to put anyone in danger, again. But their is something compelling about the define, strait forward, mysterious Major Tarver Merendsen--war hero, and broadcasted on every news screen for his noble acts. But a nobody by her fathers standards. But she can't help but to feel hypnotized by his direct sureness, and overly attractive demeanor he carries. But Lilac knows he's a no zone, and the risk for indulging could put him in danger, so she's forced to put him in his place, and knock him down a few pegs. But it isn't until her fathers Titanic-like spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet that Lilac and Tarver must put their differences aside if their going to have any chance at survival. But this is just the beginning of their mysterious journey, and they'll have to endure the unthinkable if their going to make it out of this, alive...

    When Lilac and Tarver crash alone on a mysterious planet, with no other survivors or other people inhabiting this planet, they realize they may be in more trouble then they first anticipated. But for Tarver, what could be more worse then landing alone on a planet with the most spoiled girl in all the galaxy? And for Lilac, it couldn't be more tiresome then having to put up with Major Merendsen's mouth, while having to trek across a planet in a dress fit for a ball, and the most agonizing high heels ever made. But as their journey continues, so do the voices--voices that aren't from anyone they see. Are they going crazy, have they been stranded too long without the proper care? Or is someone really there, hiding within the planets landscape? Or is this journey just taking it's toll on them?

    As days pass stranded in this wasteland of a planet, so does their hatred and vile attitudes towards each other. And the more they begin to lean on each other for comfort and reassurance. But something else begins to grow between them. Something that could get them in a heap of trouble if revealed. But they can't help they're feelings for each other, and they're tired of fighting it, especially alone with no one else to turn to, and no hope of rescue. But they know they're playing with fire, and when it's all said and done, they will lose one way or another: Either stranded forever, forced to be cut off from any other human contact. Or be rescued, but forced apart to never be together again. And now, rescue isn't looking so appealing.... But that could be the least of their worries, because the voices are still calling to them, and they want something, and they aren't going away until they get it....

    Ooh, I just loved this book soo soooo much!! But honestly, I'm surprised that I loved it as much as I did. They're really wasn't that much action throughout almost the entire book. It was just Lilac and Tarver traveling the wasteland of an abandoned planet, trying to survive and uncover the secrets and mystery's that were calling to them. And it was just the two main characters, Lilac and Tarver throughout most of the book. But the authors played it right and did a remarkable job with portraying the plot around just the two of them. But even with that, it was still beautifully breathtaking!!! Every single thing about this book was EPIC!!!

    Overall, THESE BROKEN STARS rocked my world to the core! It was beautiful and full of secrets, with twist and turns that blew me away. If you are looking for a book with originality, and a forbidden romance that's determined to survive against all odds, with Sci-f aspects, set in a Titanic-like world in space, then THESE BROKEN STARS is a must read for you!!

    NOTE: I received a physical ARC from Disney Hyperion for reviewing purposes! All opinions expressed are my own and are not influenced in any way!

    Five unbroken stars are not enough!

    I liked this book so much that I am ready to order the next in the series today! I would recommend it to teens and adults who like fantasy/science fiction.

    I am far from a young adult, but I often read YA fiction because a great book is great no matter the age of its intended audience, and YA books are often shorter. All of the fun in a smaller package.

    The authors have created characters in whom I can believe. I would love to meet them. Tarver and Lilac changed during this story, so much so that I find myself really wanting to know about their futures. Literary characters only have futures in our imagination...but my imagination was not ready to say goodbye when I closed the book.

    I enjoyed the story-telling device of a "debriefing" between every chapter. The two characters alternate chapters and the changing POV makes the story compelling.

    Lilac, the debutante, despite initial attraction, forces herself to dislike Tarver, the soldier/hero; Tarver, likewise. But their point of views change. Lilac says, "...suddenly I see in the man in front of me the qualities of the Major Merendsen, war hero. He could probably lead water uphill if he wanted to." Tarver says, "She's not looking at me and seeing the guy brought up on the wrong type of planet. She's not seeing a soldier, or a war hero, or an uncultured lout who doesn't understand how hard this is for her or an idiot who knows nothing about the right kind of anything. She just sees me."

    This is science fiction with a big dose of common sense; fantasy with more than a touch of reality, and romance that will warm your heart. Get this book and settle back and enjoy.
