TSW tour button final

If you’re a fan of Tarver and Lilac from These Broken Stars, I don’t even know how to explain how much you’re going to love the new characters in This Shattered World! This companion story set in the same universe follows the awesome Jubilee Chase and the guy she absolutely, positively should not get involved with, Flynn Cormac. And, well…you know how that goes. ;) I thought Tarver was going to be hard to live up to, but Flynn’s going to win you over fast–but not as fast as Jubilee does, because she’s kickass from page 1. I have a serious girl crush on her and I’m not afraid to admit it.

There is so much to say about how the Starbound universe has deepened and expanded in this second book, but the characters are a great place to introduce you to this fantastic story. To kick off the official blog tour we’re hosting for the book, we thought it’d be fun to ask the authors to provide a military-style dossier on their characters. Ready to meet your new favorite couple? Ta-daaa!

vine-divider-finalSecrets of Starbound Unlocked: Cast of Characters
by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

As those who have read These Broken Stars know, the Starbound universe is full of secrets, mysteries, and conspiracies. In order to keep our stories straight (literally!) our editor had us make an encyclopedia of the entire universe before we ever got started on revisions for the first book. We’re constantly adding to it now, and we’ve got pages and pages of info about the planets in this particular galaxy, the history of terraforming, dossiers of characters… and we’re pulling out a few of them featured in This Shattered World here to share with you! (Don’t worry, we’re not spoiling any real secrets for you. You’ll have to read the books to discover those!)

Secrets of Starbound--Cast of Characters--Flynn

Flynn Cormac

Age: 17
Height: 5’11”
Hair: Dark brown, curly
Eyes: Green
Appearance: Of Irish descent. Pale skin emphasized by a lifetime spent on Avon, a planet with perpetual cloud cover. He has, in the words of Jubilee Chase, “a chin so perfect it makes me want to hit it.”

Description: Flynn is the brother of an executed rebel leader, the reluctant heir to the rebellion on Avon. Surrounded by bitterly committed fighters (called the Fianna), he’s watching his people crippled by a lack of food and medicine, forced into unrelenting labor and kept from their loved ones. He’s losing hope of finding a non-violent way to make their voices heard, and around him, pressure is building for another rebellion. Vying for control over the Fianna with McBride, a man decades his senior preaching all-out war, Flynn is a pacifist in a world where peace is almost never rewarded.

Storyline: When Flynn stumbles on a mysterious facility, he ventures onto the military base in search of more information. From there, events snowball—caught by Jubilee, he’s forced to kidnap her, and then ultimately help her escape his own people when he’s unwilling to murder her.


Secrets of Starbound--Cast of Characters--JubileeCaptain Jubilee “Lee” Chase

Age: 18
Height: 5’11”
Hair: Black, long, usually in a ponytail or braided.
Eyes: Brown
Appearance: Of African/Chinese descent. Brown skin, sculpted features, with a soldier’s build and posture. Physically fit, strong, fairly tall… she’ll kick your ass if you look at her wrong.

Description: Born on a colony planet, Jubilee saw her parents killed in a rebel uprising, and her military career has been driven by a single-minded devotion to upholding order. She’s the only soldier on Avon to remain immune to the Fury, a violence-inducing rage that inevitably sweeps through all off-worlders on Avon. Jubilee knows that tensions in the colony are like a powder keg, and she plans on being there to prevent a catastrophic body count this time. She’s absolutely driven to uphold the fragile peace the military imposes.

Storyline: Lee Chase has always had a simple approach–she stays disciplined, and keeps her platoon safe. When she encounters Flynn Cormac, her lines start to blur. Committed and honorable in his own way, he’s everything rebels aren’t supposed to be, and she comes to realise he’s the only thing standing between his people and a war that would leave a huge body count on all sides.


And a few others…


Molly the Bartender: A three-hundred-pound Chinese guy with a tattoo of a Chrysanthemum on his neck. Loves his vintage jukebox, raised in a backwater country town, with an accent to match.

Sean Ahearn: Flynn’s cousin, best friend and right-hand-man. He’s a single parent to his orphaned nephew, a teacher to the rebels’ children, and a guerilla fighter.

Commander Antje Towers: The tall, blond, no-nonsense commander in charge of the primary military base on Avon. She knows more than she’s telling anyone.

Tarver Mer—Wait, what? You want to know whether you’ll see Lilac and Tarver again? Well, let’s just say that although their book might be done, their story certainly isn’t over yet…

    So excited for this book! And the cover is absolutely gorgeous! :]

  2. Marie

    To be honest, I haven’t read either novel yet. That’s why I’d love to win the giveaway, so I could try them! I’ve heard fantastic things about them, though. I do enjoy companion books, like Code Name Verity/Rose Under Fire, so I think I’d like these Starbound novels.

  3. Megan Blackwell

    I am so excited to read the next book and meet the characters! :)

    • Megan Blackwell

      Forgot to mention how beautiful the cover is, I just can’t get over it! Thank you very much for the giveaway.

  4. Sunny Chim

    Oh wow. I loved loved loved These Broken Stars, and it looks like I’m going to love This Shattered World too. AND ohmygosh Flynn sounds ABSOLUTELY dashing. And Lee sounds badass. I think I’m in heaven already.
    Oh my lord I had hoped it wouldn’t be the last we’d seen of Tarver and Lilac!! I’m thinking that the three couples (since it is three love stories) will be all united for a thrilling conclusion! Too much to hope for? A girl can dream! ;)

  5. Katie

    Loved the first book! It was so unique and the writing was gorgeous!

  6. tsukari

    Starbound has easily become one of my favorite series of all time! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  7. Amber Hendricks

    You guys are amazing. I just recently read These Broken Stars and it is by far my favorite read of 2014. As a fan of Firefly, this book really resonated with me! I loved the setting, the adventure, the slow burning romance…I can’t wait to read more!

  8. Jennifer

    I have a… complicated system of book favorites, but These Broken Stars was definitely on the top level. When I first read the book I just fell in love with the characters and the plot and… everything. I haven’t had the chance to read This Shattered World yet, but will hopefully soon. I like winning as well, and any prize related to an amazing book is wonderful.

  9. Kate

    These Broken Stars was one of my fave books of 2014, very excited for this companion novel!!

  10. Mithila

    I just got the book on my kindle (even though I ordered a hardcover from the library) Can’t wait to read it!

  11. Ashley Jellison

    I haven’t read TSW yet (yikes!) but I cannot wait to! Awesome review and wowie that’s an awesome grand prize! I love seeing the choices of actors, as well.

  12. Victoria Stegle

    This trilogy is unlike any other. It’s so cool that we get a different couple in each novel. It’s like were falling in love all over again! I adored Tarver so I am really excited to meet the new characters. Plus the covers are always so colorful and beautiful. Aimee & Megan are true artists. I would totally love to win this prize! I leave in NoVA so I can hopefully make it to the DC tour stop, if not, I’m definitely requesting my book to be signed :)

  13. Courtney

    These Broken Stars is such an amazing book! After a month of not being able to get into a book, this really made me want to read like crazy. Such great characters and a brilliant way of telling a story. This prize sounds so great!
    Thanks for giving us such a great story and what sounds like an awesome tour!

  14. Janet Driver

    Always happy to get hooked into a new world. Looking forward to an epic read.

  15. Lynn K.

    I really enjoyed These Broken Stars so I was really excited for This Shattered World. I forgot exactly what Amie said during the Aussie TSW launch, but I find it interesting that people immediately thought that it was a m/m when the pairing was announced to be a soldier/rebel. xD

    Definitely have a girl crush on Jubilee. <3

  16. Linnea Pietsch

    I seriously love the Starbound series!! I’ve been waiting for this Shattered World for too long and I just can’t wait to read it.

  17. Stacy

    I have not read These Broken Stars yets because I am not a very patient person, I hate waiting for the next book in a series to be released, so I wait until at least two books are published before I start reading. I have heard so many amazing things about this series that I cannot wait to meet the characters. I think I will love Lee!

  18. IC

    You have no idea how excited I am about this! I can’t wait to get my hands on this book! These Broken Stars was one of my favorite books to read in 2014 and even if This Shattered World doesn’t continue that story, I still NEED more!!!!
    IC recently posted…science of willpower

  19. Jen

    I just started this on audio. Sometimes an audiobook will do sound effects which lend atmosphere and presence to the book – and this one did that very well. I already like the narrators and that’s just going to enhance the book. If it even approaches being as good as TBS it will be fantastic! I got to participate in a Q&A with Meagan and Amie on GR and they are just wonderful people. I’m so glad they’re sponsoring this giveaway.

  20. Harrison

    I’m really, really excited to meet the new characters. I mean, I’m missing Tarver and Lilac so much, but I can’t wait to get the chance to read about someone else and their experiences.

  21. Lucille Jeanne Lanuza

    I am so excited for this book!! I definitely would want to read this!

  22. Hoku Kai

    I fell in love with “These Broken Stars” and can’t wait to read the next book “This Shattered World”. I was counting down the days till this book was released and can’t wait to read it. I also recommended “These Broken Stars” to my sister and she fell in love with the story.

  23. Sarah J.

    I’m always so late to jumping on the bookish bandwagon for good books. I bought the first book right when it came out and I still haven’t read it. What is wrong with me?! I think this year I will be making it a goal to dive into this world. A good sci-fi may be a lot of fun and I need some fun in my books right now! New Year Resolution: to stop putting off These Broken Stars and pick up the sequel while I’m at it!

    I am really excited to meet Jubilee and Flynn. The books sound wonderful.

  25. Emily Crowell

    I am SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK!!! I couldn’t help but get totally sucked into the world of ‘These broken stars.’ It even managed to break my usual prerequisites (a splash of magic and a handsome prince ;) for becoming one of my favorite books! I can’t wait to see what they do with the companion novel…
    Thank you so much for the giveaway!!

  26. Mo Gillespie

    I definitely enjoyed getting to know the characters. Especially Flynn who I could totally see as being, at least looking, Darren Criss-esque. Can’t wait to read more.

  27. Sarah Kershaw

    I like your casting! I’m excited for this book for multiple reasons. First I really enjoyed TBS. Tracer still is one of my favorite male characters. For this book I’m soooo happy to see a POC on the cover and as the main character.

  28. Melanie Barksdale

    I really loved These Broken Stars, the cover was so beautiful and storyline is amazing. I’m so excited for This Shattered World because each character sounds so amazing and unique.

  29. Tanya (Read. Run. Study.)

    I really enjoyed These Broken Stars, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read This Shattered World (wI miss Lilac and Tarver). But then I read This Night So Dark and loved it! I want more in the world and I’m glad to see that Lilac/Tarver aren’t forgotten.

    I’m so excited to read This Shattered World and all the characters sound fantastic! However I do hope/wish for Tarver and Lilac make an appearance, because I’ve grown really attached to them.

  31. Sierra

    I haven’t had the chance to read these books yet, but they are on my list! I’m in love with the covers alone. That color, UGH! It’s so pretty. :) Thanks for the chance to win such fabulousness. Meeting the authors would be way cool!

  32. Mary G Loki

    I am def excited to have a chance to meet Jubilee and Flynn! I am currently half way through These Broken Stars!! I LOVE it so far and can’t wait to read This Night So Dark and This Shattered World!!!! :D

  33. Sabrina

    I absolutely cannot wait for this book. I picked up the first one kind of randomly, and it totally blew me away. Only three more days left until publication. :)

  34. Aneta

    I have been dying to read this book! I absolutely can’t wait to get my hands on it. Fantastic post :)

  35. Lorraine

    I haven’t read either of these books, but based on the gender discussion from the authors that I read on Love is a Not a Triangle, I’m super interested. I love strong female characters, and it’s great to see gender tropes being subverted and changed around. These books are definitely on my To-Read list now!

  36. Joycedale

    I would love to win these books for my daughter! I read TBS as an ebook but since that’s on my phone (which she’s not touching) and our library hasn’t gotten it, she hasn’t had the chance to read it.

  37. Chanda

    Really excited for this book, and the new characters, loving the diversity. and Again, GORGEOUS cover.

  38. Danielle B.

    I just got the first book and plan on reading it soon. This series seems like a great read with a nice amount of angst and snark. Thanks! :D

  39. Amelia

    I am extremelly excited for this book. I read the preview in This Night so Dark, and it was amazing. I can hardly wait until I can get my hands on this book, and this made me even more excited. The characters all seem like really cool people I wish I could meet, and il need to know how Tarver and Lilac are involved.

  40. Veray Carter

    This looks like something I would love to read. I can’t wait to get to know these interesting characters

  41. Yummy

    I’m actually super pumped to meet Molly the Bartender, he seems like such an interesting person with a great sense of humor!

  42. Mandy

    I LOVED These Broken Stars. The story was incredible and made me an emotional train wreck at times. I can not wait for the next installment so that I can travel back into the world of These Broken Stars and to fall in love with new characters!

  43. Ameenah H.

    This book caught my interest since I first heard about it on goodreads. I haven’t read the first book in this series and i seriously need to. the small book store next to me doesn’t have it yet. this just seems like a fun series, something different from what i usually read.

  44. Thomas

    I would like to win this prize because although the characters described in this post appear to have striking physical features, their backgrounds stand out a lot and I would like to learn how their pasts influence their present actions. Great giveaway, guys!

  46. Jenny

    These Broken Stars was absolutely amazing (and the feels!), so of course I’m super excited for This Shattered World.

  47. Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

    Yes! This Shattered World is amazing! I’m not even sure I can say what I loved the most about it – character development? (loved it!), world building? (amazing!) the fighting? (very creative and tough).
    And the writing is beautiful, too.
    I love seing these pictures of the characters, as well as a little something extra about them :)

    I’m getting pretty excited about this one! Thanks for the physical descriptions- it’s a shame the publisher whitewashed the characters on the cover. I’d be even MORE eager to pick it up if I saw the kind of racial diversity on the cover that is clearly present in the book.

  49. Elizabeth Fletcher

    I absolutely loved These Broken Stars! ! I read it in one sitting traveling after Thanksgiving and I think I freaked the guy out on the plane next to me because I was crying and turning pages feverishly. And now I’ve just found out that Amie and Meagan will be in my home town on my 25th birthday and I’ve already got a spot in line to meet them and have them sign This Shattered World! I cannot wait!

The world-building was so well done in the first book – and now I know why based on reading the interview above. Looking forward to reading the sequel – it’s on hold at the library!

  54. Heather Rosdol

    I have yet to read the first book in this series but I think I have Starbound Fever! I’ve met Meagan Spooner a few times in Asheville. She’s very gracious and friendly and always willing to discuss writing or any other topic with you when you approach her. I love that the rebel group is called the Fianna and I can’t wait to meet Jubilee, such an interesting name! And Molly the bartender sounds a bit interesting, too!

    “a chin so perfect it makes me want to hit it.” Great line!

    I read so many great reviews that I wanted to read the first book when it came out… and then, well, you know how it is when you blog – it slipped behind book after book that I needed to read for one reason or another. I’m hoping to make some changes in the coming year: a better balance between ARCs and my TBR pile/list. So hopefully I’ll finally get to These Broken Stars and This Shattered World.

  70. Colleen

    Just finished reading “These Broken Stars” last week and really enjoyed it. I’m glad to see that one of the characters is biracial; there’s so little biracial representation in literature, let alone YA, that it’s cool to see Kaufman and Spooner including that aspect in their story.

  71. Shanty

    yayyy! thanks for hosting I’m so excited to find out all the secrets Amie and Meagan hid in that fantastic world! I would love to win the hardcopy!!! I’ve been waiting anxiously for this one for over a year and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

  72. Cait

    I’M SO PUMPED TO READ THIS BOOK. I carried TBS around with me after a I finished it because I was in this weird book induced haze.

  73. Katie

    I cannot wait to read “This Shattered World”! “These Broken Stars” was such a beautiful start to this trilogy, and I cannot wait to see what Amie and Meagan have come up with this time!
    I also love the fact that the main guy’s name in “This Shattered World” is Flynn because it reminds me of Flynn Rider, who was an unexpected hero. I feel that both of the Flynns have that in common!

  74. Erin

    I’ve wanted to read this series for a while now, because it sounded so interesting! I was planning on getting to These Broken Stars soon and I already feel like I’m going to really enjoy it. I seriously love these kinds of books.

  81. Nicole

    I read These Broken Stars months ago, and it was one of my favorite books of all time. No, seriously—it is on my ‘favorites’ shelf on Goodreads, and only twenty-one others are on there. My Goodreads username is even lilaclaroux. I just love that book too much. When I read the e-novella, This Night So Dark, and saw there was preview of This Shattered World, I freaked out just a little bit. But now I wish I didn’t read it because now I am very, very impatient. I’m excited for more Jubilee and Flynn, definitely.

    I can’t wait to post my review on the blog in a few days Wendy because this one was pretty awesome! I love the photos you have for both characters. I imagined them so different but now I can see how Amie and Meagan imagined them and I love it.

    AAAH! Holy smokes! This is amazing! I can’t wait for This Shattered World. When I read These Broken Stars, I got so mad at myself for not reading it when it first first came out. I just love all the characters! They’re all so unique and bad ass and swoony and I just can’t wait to get ANOTHER swoony couple ♥
    I think if I got the chance to meet the authors I’d make a fangirl fool of myself :P
