"At last, a YA series that doesn't suffer from second book syndrome! I really loved These Broken Stars and sat down to read This Shattered World with some anticipation. I wasn't disappointed." - --The Bookbag
"I cannot stress how much I enjoyed the little snapshots of the character's past lives in between the chapters...his book is definitely worth a read. If you like your science fiction with a dash of romance and a little bit of adventure, this will offer a great distraction from reality." - --Cuckoo Review

I will admit that the "little guy v Evil Company Inc" story has been played out before, but the human drama and the action taking place in it makes up for the familiar story. The characters are just as detailed as the first, and are just as fleshed out. The pacing of the novel is flawless, and the intricacies of thought behind our heroes' actions is expertly revealed and makes sense, which is especially important when they appear to abandon their "sides".
Additionally, little details are tied into this book, such as Tarver's comment about a soldier only tasting dead rat in the first book, turns out it was our heroine in this book. The main characters in the third book are also touched on in this one, linking the books and stories together in ways that very few authors seem to ever master. This takes the series to the next level in my opinion, I love it.
Once again, the close of the novel, and especially Lee's interaction towards the end (you'll know it when you read it), left me in tears for a little. It was another great ride, and I seriously recommend it.
I'm off to read the third!
Captain Jubilee Chase is known by many as Stone Faced Chase. Her soldiers respect her and she watches out for them, but she refuses to show too much emotion so the nickname doesn’t bother her, too much. Flynn Cormac leads the rebels on Avon and fights on the opposite side of Jubilee. An unfortunate encounter forces Flynn to kidnap Jubilee in the hopes of getting information about a secret base. As they learn more about each other, they find their views aren’t so different and they might be forced to find a side of their own, between the rebels and the military.
Having enjoyed the first book in this series, I really wanted to read this one and I am so glad that I did. I thought this one was even better than the first book.
Jubilee’s wit sucked me in from the moment I started reading. She’s tough as nails and knows how to read people. She’s a strategist. She’s strong on the inside and outside, but she has a trauma from her past that clings to her. I loved seeing her come out of her shell throughout the course of the story.
Flynn was also a great character. Throughout this book, I had times where I wondered how he managed to be the leader of the rebels and then he would open his mouth. He’s a skilled speaker. I really loved that he wanted to find a non-violent way to go about the rebellion.
I didn’t care for the snippets between chapters nearly as much as I did in the first book. They felt a bit too random. Once I got to the end of the book and they tied in closer to the story, I understood why the authors choose this. I still wished it had almost been something else, but they didn’t take away from the book at all.
Lilac and Tarver make an appearance in this book and I really appreciated that the authors didn’t just forget about them. I almost wished they could have had a larger role, but, then again, it wasn’t what this book needed.
The ending was satisfying and just made me want to jump into the next book. Once again, there was the sweet relief that there wasn’t a cliff hanger. Overall, I loved this book.
