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've gotta ask: what do you think of this cover (and in comparison to These Broken Stars)?


  1. I'm SOOOOOOOOOO excited for this book!!! But honestly, I'm... not super in love with the cover... =S I feel like their outfits look awful against the orange and purple background :X

  2. New follower here!

    I am yet to read the first book in this series, but I have heard only great things. I agree with Nikki, the outfits don't stand out against the orange background on the cover - but it's still very stiking.

    Check out my WOW post this week!

  3. Sadly, I haven't read These Broken Stars yet. :( I have it, but I just haven't had the time for it. I absolutely love the cover of the first book. This cover, though, I'm a little torn. The colors are really pretty, but the bodies look awkward. So, I'm kinda "eh" about the it.

  4. I think I like this cover just a little bit more! While I didn't love These Broken Stars I'm still excited to check this one out =)

  5. I love the colors, but the people looks a bit awkward/stiff/weird-ish. I can't wait to read the book though, so great pick! :)
    Here's my WoW

  6. Adore this cover! I still need to read these Broken Stars and I am so excited to get started! Great pick, I hope you enjoy :)

  7. I'm really excited to read this book too! I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of the cover. I love the background colors but the couple just really looks uncomfortable and awkward. Also, their clothes should be some other color. The colors don't pop out like with the first book.
    Still, I'll be reading this when it comes out!
    Lovely pick! :)

  8. so not impressed by that cover. Especially compared to the gorgeousness of These Broken Stars. Nope. And, I am seriously disappointed that it's not to with the original characters, I kind of really hate when series' do that. Make you fall in love with the characters and then...that happens. Grrr. :( I still can't wait for it though,, (well, we'll see.)

    Here's mine

  9. This is my WoW pick as well!!

    I love the cover!! I like that it matches the first book, but is a different color! I need this book now!

  10. Wowsers That Cover is stunning. It is absolutely beautiful. It totally loved the 1st book. Hoping the 2nd book will be even better. great WOW choice this week.

  11. As much as I loved the cover on the first book, I love this one even MORE! IT's absolutely gorgeous :) The dress from the last one seemed a tad out of place to me (as pretty as it was!) and I love the orange/pink colours - so pretty!

    I still need to read this series, but it sounds perfect for me - Glad to hear your excited for the next book!

  12. I am DEFINITELY waiting on this. I can't say I'm a big fan of the cover (it has a bit of a fan-made feel to it), but I feel like it will be one that will grow on me. Regardless, I'm excited about the book. :)

  13. Excellent choice! I'm so waiting for this one. The cover is so pretty and I am so excited to get to know these two new characters. So far These Broken Stars is one of my favorite books I read this year!

  14. I was wondering if it was going to get a sequel! I'll definitely have to add this to my list now.

    My WoW:
