Publisher Description

It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they're worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

“Voiced in alternate chapters, Lilac and Tarver are characters of depth, complexity, and strength, young people who alternately elicit the reader’s admiration, frustration, and sympathy…A testament to love, loyalty, courage, and the power of good over dystopian greed and perversity.”

— Booklist (starred review) 


  • “Absolutely brilliant. This is the sci fi I’ve been waiting for! Action, romance, twists and turns—this book has it all!”

    — Beth Revis, New York Times bestselling author of Across the Universe
  • “One of the most intense, thrilling, and achingly beautiful stories I’ve ever read. Kaufman and Spooner will break your heart with skilled aplomb, and you’ll thank them for it. Absolutely incredible! If I have to, I will come to your house and shove this book into your hands!”

    — Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend trilogy
  • “Spooner and newcomer Kaufman do an excellent job of keeping their story from falling into clichéd romantic territory…The external conflicts and underlying mysteries will keep readers guessing (and turning the pages).”

    — Publishers Weekly
  • “Excitingly original material…A wonderful tale that should appeal to both teen and adult readers.”

    — Library Journal
  • “An exciting outer-space adventure.”

    — Kirkus Reviews
  • “This is not a lighthearted adventure story; this is a novel about survival. As the protagonists deal with insanity, death, and utter despair, the complete hopelessness of their situation makes it more compelling, and the bond that they form all the more real.”

    — RT Book Reviews (4.5 stars)
  • “With rich, complex characters and a dynamic—and dangerous—new world, These Broken Stars completely transported me.”

    — Jodi Meadows, author of the Incarnate series
