Review: These Broken Stars

Saturday, January 11, 2014
Why I chose this book: 
I will be the first to admit it. I am a sucker for space operas. At the tender age of 8, I watched Star Wars for the first time and Han Solo had me at “I know”.  When I was eleven, I wanted to be an astronaut. Sadly, a few rounds of roller coasters permanently crushed those dreams. Needless to say, I had stardust in my blood. The fortunate thing for me, and for young adult literature, is that there is some amazingly well written space opera and science fiction novels. I had seen a couple of book blogs I follow give this book a good review, so I knew I had to pick it up.

It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone. 

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help. 

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it. (Goodreads)
