These Broken Stars
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. (from Goodreads)
Holy smokes! I just read the last page and all I know is - I want more!
Tarver and Lilac - he’s a young soldier/hero and she is the daughter to one of the wealthiest men in the universe. Could they be any different? And yet, when they become survivors on a desolate planet, they must overcome their differences if they are to survive.
I could not put this book down. I loved these two teenagers, struggling to stay alive and falling in love. This is categorized as YA/teenager but I still found the story to be quite captivating. What a great read!
My thanks to Disney Hyperion, via Netgalley, for allowing me to read this in exchange for an unbiased review.
