Their Fractured Light
Summary:Gideon Marchant is an eighteen-year-old computer hacker—a whiz kid and an urban warrior.
Sofia Quinn has a killer smile, and by the time you’re done noticing it, she’s got you offering up your wallet, your car, and anything else she desires. She holds LaRoux Industries responsible for the mysterious death of her father and is out for revenge at any cost.
When a LaRoux Industries security breach interrupts Gideon and Sofia’s separate attempts to infiltrate their headquarters, they’re forced to work together to escape.
And from the inside, surrounded by the joy and devotion and loyalty of my friends, the shimmer of rage on the outside of our lives looks paper-thin.
Their Fractured Light is a satisfying conclusion to an incredible trilogy.
Being a huge Titanic fan, I always had a feeling that These Broken Stars was going to be my favorite book in the series. Even so, This Shattered World and Their Fractured Light both managed to impress me by how well-written and intelligently plotted they were – even if they didn’t quite live up to the quality of These Broken Stars.
Two years ago, Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Menderson were the sole survivors of the deadly Icarus crash. A year ago, Flynn Cormac and Jubilee Chase sparked an intergalactic uproar when they sent out a broadcast exposing the terrible crimes of LaRoux Industries. Now it’s Sofia and Gideon’s turn.
Sofia Quinn may look sweet and innocent, but she knows deception better than anyone. With her wit and a smile, Sofia can wither herself out of any situation.
Snarky and never short of a comeback, Gideon Marchant is the famous Knave of Hearts, one of the galaxy’s best hackers.
When Sofia and Gideon are caught breaking into LaRoux Industry Headquarters, each looking for revenge, they quickly realize the only way they’ll escape is to work together. But when they uncover incriminating evidence about LaRoux Industries in the midst of their escape, they realize that they might be able to bring LaRoux Industries down…for good.
Surprisingly, where Their Fractured Light fell a bit short was the romance. The entire first half of the story revolves around Sofia and Gideon, and the second half of the story revolves around Sofia and Gideon teaming up with Lilac, Tarver, Flynn and Jubilee to put down LaRoux Industries once and for all. As a result, they only have half of the story to fall in love. When compared to the romance of Lilac & Tarver and Flynn & Jubilee, Sofia & Gideon’s romance just felt a bit too quick for me.
All in all, Their Fractured Lights is a thrilling and gripping ending to the Starbound trilogy. I am anxious to see what Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman write next.
