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

caught between two sides of a senseless war.

forgiveness in a world torn apart by war.
For any regular follower or reader of this blog, you'll know how much I absolutely adored the first book of Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner's series, These Broken Stars. From the moment I started reading it I thought it was phenomenal and I've been anxiously awaiting the sequel when I finished book one.
I can't wait to delve into the story of two new characters, see old favorites, and get completely lost in these ladies writing and world again. They are a phenomenal duo!
