Reviews

"Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner prove they are two living goddesses of writing, creating two compelling worlds with high stakes and gripping emotions."--Sarah Rees Brennan, New York Times bestselling author of the Demons Lexicon trilogy and the Lynburn Legacy series.
Praise for Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner's STARBOUND series: "Absolutely brilliant. This is the sci fi I've been waiting for!" -- Beth Revis, New York Times bestselling author of Across the Universe
"One of the most intense, thrilling, and achingly beautiful stories I've ever read. Kaufman and Spooner will break your heart with skilled aplomb, and you'll thank them for it. Absolutely incredible! If I have to, I will come to your house and shove this book into your hands."--Marie Lu, New York Times best-selling author of the Legend trilogy
"With rich, complex characters and a dynamic--and dangerous--new world, THESE BROKEN STARS completely transported me."--Jodi Meadows, author of the Incarnate series
"Kaufman and Spooner couple an epic romance with dazzling science fiction in a tale that will appeal to lovers of both genres. This is a must-read." 5Q (Quality rating of 5/5), Best Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror List, 2013.--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
"First-time author Kaufman and coauthor Spooner begin their science-fiction romance in familiar territory and then chart a course that goes to new heights ... a wonderful tale that should appeal to both teen and adult readers."--School Library Journal
"Strange visions and apparitions give the story a chilling edge, and a late revelation elevates these developments into entirely new territory. In a collaboration that, at times, evokes Lost, Titanic, and Romancing the Stone, Spooner (Skylark) and newcomer Kaufman do an excellent job of keeping their story from falling into clichΓ©d romantic territory ... the external conflicts and underlying mysteries will keep readers guessing (and turning the pages)."--Publishers Weekly
"These Broken Stars is at its heart a love story. Voiced in alternate chapters, Lilac and Tarver are characters of depth, complexity, and strength, young people who alternately elicit the reader's admiration, frustration, and sympathy. While the book is the first of a promised trilogy, it stands on its own as a testament to love, loyalty, courage, and the power of good over dystopian greed and perversity."--ALA Booklist (starred review)
