Title: Their Fractured Light
Authors: Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Series: Starbound Trilogy book 3
Carrying on the momentum of the story built in the previous two books of the series, this book brings the core storyline to the front in the form of personal vendetta of both the new main characters of this third story. The two, Gideon and Sophia, also have to deal with their own issues as they work to expose the dark side of the ever-growing LaRoux Industries.
The story is set on the planet of Corinth this time and the initial chapters are full of events that pull you back into their world without giving you a headache because of the information overload. The initial spark is there in both the characters but they are still apprehensive of each other, recognizing the fact that they both hold several secrets from each other. And as they uncover what could potentially be LRI’s plan for galaxy domination, they set loose a chain of events that none of the six main characters saw coming. And then, stopping the tortured creature that had been imprisoned for so long from wiping out humanity becomes their main task, even as the couple of this book deal with their choices and actions that has brought them to this point.
Choice becomes ultimately the central theme of the story as all the six lead characters, though scarred and hurt by one man, define their futures with their choices. And it is the ability of choose that they offer to the ‘others’ that helps define the future for everyone alive.
A special mention also for the snippets that help piece the entire series together from ‘their’ perspective.
