A 'Shattering' Sequel!

MY THOUGHTS
I loved These Broken Stars, so I was excited to read this book! This book wasn't quite as amazing as These Broken Stars, but I still loved it!

Lee is captain of soldiers on the planet Avon. The goal there is for them to crush a rebellion brewing from the natives. Then a boy named Flynn kidnapped her, as a spur of the moment. Turns out Flynn is one of the leaders of the rebellion, but instead of killing her, like the others want, they end up joining forces. Together they realize that there is a different enemy on Avon and everything connects to it. A disappearing base, a madness falling upon the soldiers, and why the planet hasn't been terraforming.

I really liked being back in this world again! This is a completely different storyline than These Broken Stars, but it takes place in the same universe. At first I was upset that this was only a companion book, with different characters, but I actually really like how this was a completely different story. I was really engrossed in this new world and I liked seeing how this one planet was affecting by the ongoings on one corporation.

Also, we do get to see the characters of These Broken Stars!!!! Briefly, but it made me so happy!

I did grow to love the characters in this book as well! Lee is a badass girl, and I absolutely loved her. Flynn is also tough, living with the rebels, but he prefers peace and he is also very kind. Any of the other rebels would have killed Lee, but he helped her.

As for romance, I loved it. First of all, it had a bit of a hate-to-love thing going on. Yeah, we could see it coming, but the fact that Lee and Flynn began as enemies and Flynn even kidnapped Lee, yeah, it began in tough territory.


IN CONCLUSION
This book was very exciting and fast-paced! I loved everything about it, even if I loved the first book more! I'm only disappointed that there wasn't as many plot twists, but that's not a problem! Overall, I love this series and can't wait to see what characters I will get to follow next!
