Book Review: These Broken Stars by Peter H. Johnston

thesebrokenstars When their ship suddenly crashes, Lilac and Tarver find themselves thrust into a foreign world full of wonder and danger.  The two characters couldn’t be more different, but the struggles of a new world cause them to rely on each other and look past prejudices to work towards a common goal: rescue.

Told from the alternating viewpoints, this novel will appeal to fans of Beth Revis. Characters are interesting and the plot full of subtle unexpected twists.

Quote on believing in what you can’t see:

She starts climbing to her feet, slow and painful, and if looks could kill I’d be dead and buried. “I hope that one day you’re forced to believe in something for which you haven’t got a shred of proof.” Her voice is taut like wire. “And I hope someone you care about laughs in your face for it.”

Quote that full of beautiful imagery:

“In the morning the silence between us is gentle, broken by our puffing and panting as we scramble down then snowy mountainside, our breath clouding the air.”
