Don’t miss the breathtaking short story that connects the first two novels in the Starbound trilogy, These Broken Stars and This Shattered World.
Tarver still has nightmares about the night, six months before the Icarus crash, when he rescued a group of civilian researchers being held hostage by brutal mercenaries. Now Tarver and Lilac must reconcile his memories of that fateful night with the truth that they uncovered on a mysterious planet after the Icarus crashed.
When I started reading These Broken Stars, I wasn’t impressed with the first five chapters. It was a slow start for me. But having a dose of Tarver and Lilac, I got hooked. I wanted more of them. When I learned about this novella, I had to have it. It’s a great thing that it’s free!
To be honest, this wasn’t the novella that I wanted. Yes, I wanted more of Tarver, but I also wanted more of Lilac. However, in this novella, it was more of Tarver’s experience, and itty-bitty conversations with Lilac in between chapters. But it’s not a huge failure, this novella. It provided more information about LaRoux Industries, and it supported my suspicions when I read These Broken Stars. This novella did pack a little punch, and we got to know Sanjana and Fisk.
Added bonus in the end are a few chapters of This Shattered World. heart
