Once again, the worldbuilding is superb, the characters fully fleshed out and intriguing, the battles riveting, and the edge-of-the seat suspense compelling. Teens looking for a well-written dystopian adventure with steampunk elements in the magical machines created by the Architects will enjoy spending time with Lark and her companions.

Ask a Question (#7): What’s in store for the sequel to THESE BROKEN STARS?

It’s been a long time since I did an “Ask a Question,” but Amie and I have been getting this question a LOT, so I wanted to put an answer front and center!

Annabel P. (and others) asked, “I just finished reading THESE BROKEN STARS (omg so goodddd) but I’m wondering about the sequel. It says that it’s the first in a trilogy, but book one wraps up so well, what’s going to happen in book two?”

These Broken StarsThat’s extremely perceptive of you! We actually wrote THESE BROKEN STARS to be a standalone novel. The Starbound series is not a traditional trilogy, following the same characters in one linear plot. Each of the three books will focus on a new pair of characters, and their individual stories.

So these books are actually more like companion novels than direct sequels. They all take place in the same universe, and they actually do happen in chronological order. We designed the whole story so that the things that happen in book two couldn’t have happened without the things that happen in book one, and so on. So each of the books will build on the one(s) before it, BUT, you can also read them separately with no real drawback except spoilers. (And don’t worry… there is a very distinct possibility you might see a familiar face or two in the other books!)

We love trilogies, of course, but we also love being able to read a book and have it be finished and completely satisfying in one shot, too. So with the Starbound series, we’ve aimed for the best of both worlds!

    Oh my gosh — I am so glad this question was asked and answered!

    I had assumed that the next two books would follow Lilac and Tarver, like most trilogies and series do. I’m really glad I realized this now, or I might have been disappointed later.

    It does make a lot of sense, though, because I was wondering how the heck there would be two more books about those characters. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for the world and series!

  2. Caitlin says:

    I already knew this from….I don’t even know where but I was JUST about to bombard you with obnoxious WILL WE SEE TARVER AND LILAC IN THE REST OF THE BOOKS AT ALL questions but you implied that we will…so yay!
