The Starbound Trilogy: Three worlds. Three love stories. One enemy.
I tell you I love going into reading a book blindly because I don't know what everything goes down in the books and I love being surprised when that happens. And I was super surprised that I absolutely love and enjoyed These Broken Stars after I read everything that happened in this awesome and amazing book. All I know about this book was Lilac LaRoux the daughter of the richest man in the universe and Tarver Merendsen a lone cynical war hero are the only survivors of the crashed ship Icarus. And they both land on an unknown planet. That's all I know about the book but I was so not prepare for everything that Lilac and Traver go through on this planet. Lilac and Tarver try to help and tolerate each other without trying to get into too much agreements with each other to try to find out a way and send a signal for rescue on the unknown planet they landed on. But while the both of them journey across the eerie deserted terrain planet for help certain strange and super creepy stuff starts too happen to both Lilac and Tarver that they both question there sanity. But litterly everything turns they world upside down when they both uncover the truth about the unknown terrain planet they crashed landed on. And here is where I am going to leave it off at without spoiling it for anybody else. But I highly loved and enjoyed These Broken Stars that I can not wait to read This Shattered World next.
