This Shattered World
The stark, swampy world of Avon sets the stage for This Shattered World, the newest installment of the Starbound series. Captain Jubilee Chase finds herself at the turning point of a rebellion when she is kidnapped by a rebel named Flynn. He’s a peaceful man, determined to find a way to talk his people and the inhabiting military down from war, but first he must find out what is happening to his world, what is keeping it from terraforming, and he thinks Jubilee can tell him. With explosive events that make the cease-fire between the two groups come crashing down around them, they find themselves thrown together in bizarre circumstances, working toward the same truth. They know a “disappearing” base in the east holds the answers, but what they find is something neither of them could have imagined.
This story has a hugely different feel from the first book’s mysterious and eerie world, taking place in a war zone being pushed toward upheaval. The story is carried along by fairly violent action, intense emotion, and a mysterious conspiracy. A fantastic cameo by Tarver and Lilac will delight those who are missing the couple from These Broken Stars.
