This Shattered World (Quote + Giveaway)

hosted by The Midnight Garden || full tour schedule
I'm pleased to be a part of the official blog tour for This Shattered World! I read it a few weeks ago, and found that Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner have crafted yet another incredibly addictive tale. You'll see more of my thoughts in my review (up tomorrow!), but today, let me share a little about the book, a quote from it and a pretty damn awesome giveaway!

Let me talk a little bit about This Shattered World first, so y'all know about this epic book:

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
Series: Starbound #2
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication Date: December 23, 2014

The second installment in the epic Starbound trilogy introduces a new pair of star-crossed lovers on two sides of a bloody war.

Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met.

Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet's rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents.

Rebellion is in Flynn's blood. Terraforming corporations make their fortune by recruiting colonists to make the inhospitable planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion.

Desperate for any advantage in a bloody and unrelentingly war, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape the rebel base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war.

Visit the These Broken Stars website for the latest news on the series and follow the authors on Twitter at @AmieKaufman and @MeaganSpooner. This Shattered World is available for pre-order (with fun swag!) and will be released in North America on December 23, 2014.

Sounds awesome, doesn't it? The truth is, This Shattered World is a really great book and I'm excited for you all to get the chance to read it too! Anyway, I'm fortunate enough to be sharing a quote from the novel today. And it's gorgeously designed too!

Isn't it lovely? That quote also made me laugh when I first read it in the novel, and it just makes Jubilee that much cooler in my head. She's a firecracker, that one!
