A young socialite and a war hero crash on an uncharted planet in this timeless and romantic love story of Titanic proportions. 'Intense, thrilling, and achingly beautiful...' - Marie Lu

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 to 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 in this place 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.

The first in a sweeping science fiction trilogy, These Broken Stars is a timeless love story about hope and survival in the face of unthinkable odds.

About the Author

Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner are longtime friends and sometime flatmates who have travelled the world (but not yet the galaxy), covering every continent between them. They are sure outer space is only a matter of time. Meagan, who is also the author of the Skylark trilogy, lives just outside Washington D.C. (though she considers herself an honorary Aussie), while Amie lives in Melbourne, Australia. Although they currently live apart, they are united by their love of space opera, road trips and second breakfasts.

This book was amazing


This book is so interesting, it contains such in depth characters. the book storyline is beautifully written as well as Lilac and Tarver romance being slow to begin with and then escalating into something that is beautiful and makes you feel so happy inside. The end of the book is very limited but with following through with the other books it allows for complete closure amongst the story.


A beautiful series


I did end up enjoying this book, it was just a bit difficult to get into. I liked it enough to read the whole series so it was actually a great series. I mainly led the idea of the book not sure if the characters weren't there best or the writing was hard to follow.
