Gr 7 Up—Lee is one of the most revered soldiers sent to Avon to prevent an uprising among colonists. Flynn happens to be one of the most rebellious of these colonists. The story begins when Flynn takes Lee captive with the intention of holding her for ransom, but when his fellow rebels decide more drastic measures must be taken, Flynn makes the choice to save Lee's life and change his life forever, turning this story into a classic Romeo and Juliet tale. Listeners who are expecting a continuation of These Broken Stars will initially be disappointed and thrown off by the fact that this story is not a straight sequel, but their confusion will be addressed halfway through when characters from the first installment appear. Narration by Callard Harris, Donnabella Mortel, and Lincoln Hoppe bring Lee, Flynn, and their world to life.
VERDICT This audiobook will be a valuable addition to collections where science fiction mixed with romance is popular.
