Book Review: Their Fractured Light
Starbound Book 3
AUTHOR: Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
PUBLISHED: December 2015
GENRE: Sci-Fi, Romance
PREMISE: Sofia and Gideon meet and set off a end to the story that started in These Broken Stars.
MY REVIEW: I meant to read this a long time ago. It's just that so many books have come out since then, it's hard to keep up on the releases. The Starbound trilogy has been a favorite of mine and I think this was a nice satisfying end to it.
I will say, the romance this time...not as great as the others. But I think that's because they only got to star in half a book while the other couples got a whole book. Half of this book is dedicated to telling their story and the other half to bringing about the conclusion. I think it would have been a better idea to have four books. One for each couple and then the conclusion where they all interact. Because the consequence was I cared very little for these two as I was more worried about the other characters.
Other then that issue, this was a well done ending. Everything is tied up nicely and in a plausible way. This trilogy was a fun ride from beginning to end. Definitely recommend it for those looking for some light sci-fi.
WHO SHOULD READ: Sci-fi fans, romance fans, For Darkness Shows the Stars fans
