Waiting on Wednesday (66)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlightsupcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This is my choice for this week:

This Shattered World (Starbound #2)
by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Expected publication: December 23rd 2014 by Disney-Hyperion

The second installment in the epic Starbound trilogy introduces a new pair of star-crossed lovers on two sides of a bloody war.

Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met.

Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet's rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents.

Rebellion is in Flynn's blood. Terraforming corporations make their fortune by recruiting colonists to make the 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 that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape the rebel base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war.

The stunning second novel in the Starbound trilogy is an unforgettable story of love and forgiveness in a world torn apart by war.

I loved These broken stars so I am curious about new characters in the same, yet different world. Also, the covers for this series are gorgeous.

What is your WoW choice for this week? Leave me a link in the comments.

  1. I'm dying to read this one girl! :) I mean the last one left me wanting for more and now I need to wait and it's killing me. Soon! :) I hope you'll get to read it soon.

  2. I'm with you! I actually had this for my wow last week. I've been waiting on this one for more then a year now, since I had en early review copy, and now, I'm really dying to finally read it!

  3. I NEEEEEED THIS BOOK!!! It really needs to hurry up and release already.

  4. This one should be very exciting! I enjoyed the first book a lot and thought there was room for a sequel, but a companion novel should work just as well. I look forward to it.

  5. These covers are great! I read the first one and thought it was ok, so I'm hoping that the sequel expands on the pieces that I thought were missing. Great pick and thanks for stopping by my WoW :)
