Summary: 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. His sister died in the original uprising against the powerful corporate conglomerate that rules Avon with an iron fist. These corporations make their fortune by terraforming uninhabitable planets across the universe and recruiting colonists to make the 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 against the military occupying his home, 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 base together, caught between two sides in a senseless war.
My Thoughts: Wow, just wow!! I think I liked this one more than the first! A new set of characters and a new set of problems! But we do see Tarver and Lilac for a little while.
We are introduced to Captain Lee who is a girl nobody messes with. All her soldiers respect her and know not to mess with her physically or emotionally. She’s strong willed, opinionated, and awesome.
Next, we meet Flynn Cormac who is mostly known for his sisters actions. He is following in her footsteps but he just wants to get along and make peace.
Flynn and Captain Lee meet in a unique way, certainly. I loved how they met, and they had so much chemistry! Too bad they are on opposite sides!
I loved following Flynn and Lee’s adventure. They were trying to work together (eventually) to change things and figure out the truth. I feel like this one was just too complex to explain everything. So much happened, and it was all important. I loved how they had to trust one another even though obstacles were against them.
I also loved all the little things going on in this book. I loved the descriptions of the caves, the stars, the water, everything. I felt like I was right there next to Lee talking to her soldiers and Flynn trying to make things better.
Also, I wanted to cry during the blast (you’ll know which one I’m talking about when you read this). It was devastating and heartbreaking! Tears!
I just loved Lee and Flynn so much!!! Amazing characters, amazing plot, and wow the feels!
Overall: I don’t want to say much more but I loved this one! I loved it even more than These Broken Stars! I loved the characters and the plot and I think everybody should give this series a chance!!!
Cover: Love it! These are so colorful yet they show the characters so nicely! Love it!
