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.

Includes a bonus preview chapter from This Shattered World!


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:


Let me start by saying this is a very short read and I thought it was worth discovering why Tarver was promoted to Major from Captain in These Broken Stars. I liked knowing him more.

This is the action that was missing for me, from These Broken Stars. Captain Tarver is on patrol with Private Gil Fisk and then all shit goes down.

There was a twist and there was action, shooting, death and mercenaries.

Hell. Yeah!

It was all over in around 46 pages because you get a sneak peek at These Broken Stars and This Shattered World at the end of it.

Visually I saw it like a little mini movie. This is what I wanted in These Broken Stars. I saw Tarver in action mode and how he became famous when he appeared at the start of These Broken Stars.

This is a prequel set six months prior to book one.

The girls gave me the oomph I was looking for in this prequel. I have my fingers crossed that This Shattered World is all action and excitement like the taste I got from this novella. This could have almost been made into a first book. But as they say, that ship has sailed.

Well done, ladies.

  1. Personally I LOVED These Broken Stars, and I just finished reading This Shattered World yesterday. I thought it was a great series and can't wait to read this short in the future to see how it all began :) Great review Mich!
