This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Lee is a career soldier. She is the captain of one of the troops on Avon trying to control the rebellious colonists. Although her troops should know better than think she would leave a bar with a man, she is kidnapped right under their noses and is being held prisoner. Her captor, Flynn, thinks he can use her to negotiate a cease fire, but he quickly realizes that neither side wants peace. Flynn and Lee escape the rebel base, yet now neither one truly know which side of the war they are really on. Who can they trust? Can they trust each other?
This Shattered World is the second book in the Starbound series. This book is more of a companion story with references to events from the first book mentioned on the fringes. Readers can pick up this book without the first, but be warned that you may feel the need to read it anyway. The star-crossed lovers have both been hurt by many people and have issues with forming new attachments. This is definitely a science fiction story, but even readers who normally don’t have the patience to read sci-fi will be able to digest this book in order to enjoy the love story. A good read that will have the reader checking for the next volume.
