A year ago, Flynn Cormac and Jubilee Chase made the now infamous Avon Broadcast, calling on the galaxy to witness for their planet, and protect them from destruction. Some say Flynn’s a madman, others whisper about conspiracies. Nobody knows the truth. A year before that, Tarver Merendsen and Lilac LaRoux were rescued from a terrible shipwreck—now, they live a public life in front of the cameras, and a secret life away from the world’s gaze.
Now, in the center of the universe on the planet of Corinth, all four are about to collide with two new players, who will bring the fight against LaRoux Industries to a head. Gideon Marchant is an eighteen-year-old computer hacker—a whiz kid and an urban warrior. He’ll climb, abseil and worm his way past the best security measures to pull off onsite hacks that others don’t dare touch.
Sofia Quinn has a killer smile, and by the time you’re done noticing it, she’s got you offering up your wallet, your car, and anything else she desires. She holds LaRoux Industries responsible for the mysterious death of her father and is out for revenge at any cost.
When a LaRoux Industries security breach interrupts Gideon and Sofia’s separate attempts to infiltrate their headquarters, they’re forced to work together to escape. Each of them has their own reason for wanting to take down LaRoux Industries, and neither trusts the other. But working together might be the best chance they have to expose the secrets LRI is so desperate to hide.
First off, can I just say PWOAR to that cover?
I swear, the designer knocks it out of the ball park with each new cover in this series, and this one might just be my favourite because … purple <3
It’s sad that this trilogy has come to its end. I wasn’t enamoured by These Broken Stars, but This Shatted World completed changed my mind about this series. Their Fractured Light, the concluding novel picks up on the story where it was left off, but follows two new characters. (FYI, I totally picked them as well! A few bloggers and I had dinner with Amie Kaufman a year ago and I asked if the hacker and Sofia would be the mains and she was all sneaky and said ‘you’ll see’ heh. :))
Sofia Quinn, the girl that lost her father and ran from Avon has found herself on Corinth and is set out to find a way to kill Roderick LaRoux once and for all. Chased by the infamous hacker, Knave of Hearts, who is always one step behind her, Sofia has to learn to trust in the help of a cheeky but resourceful underling of the Knave, who comes to her rescue when LaRoux’s men suddenly kidnaps her.
But Gideon is not who he seems, and both are hiding big secrets about their past from each other. When all six major characters finally come together, sparks fly as the Whisper that Roderick LaRoux kept tortured and isolated in his lab finally breaks free to seek revenge on humanity.
If you thought the first two books were great, well wait till you read Their Fractured Light. Amie and Meagan have done it once again — created realistic and loveable characters that slip into the story so well. And it’s always nice when characters from the previous books make an appearance. After all, they all play a part in the overarching story, and their paths were destined to cross.
Their Fractured Light is a story that gets better with every page you turn. Sofia and Gideon are great leads — both who had to overcome their past in order to move forward. They were definitely a perfect match for each other, despite their stubbornness. Of course Flynn and Lee are still my favourite couple … but Sofia and Gideon comes a very close second.
Despite all the shit that happens during this 400-page turner, I can safely say that it’s an amazing conclusion to an awesome trilogy. Thank you Amie and Meagan, for creating such a beautiful world and introducing us to such wonderfully compelling characters.
I GIVE YOU ALL THE STARS!
