Shattered Stars (Broken Skies, #3)
Unexpected allies. Unexpected betrayals. Unexpected abilities.The last thing Jax Mitchell ever wanted was to be a weapon. Her abilities are unpredictable at best, but with her twin lost, there’s no one else with enough power to take on Jastren and his mental manipulations. She doesn’t have to do it alone, though. Not only can she rely on the unwavering support of Lir, Rym, and her human friends, she also ends up with help from a surprising source.Meanwhile, her twin brother Jace—his body controlled by Jastren, and the shattered pieces of his mind locked inside—has become a monster. The struggle to hold on to what’s left of his humanity has left him weak and more confused than ever before. Every thought, every impulse, and every memory has the potential to destroy him—and everyone else around him.The futures of both the humans and the E’rikon are on the line, but as ulterior motives and political machinations are revealed, it becomes clear that the betrayals aren’t restricted to only one species. Can Jax and Lir get everyone to work together in time to prevent the two species from destroying each other? Can Jace find some measure of redemption for all he has done? And will Jax be able to harness her powers… without losing herself in the process?

It was action packed, emotionally gutting and I found myself on the edge of my seat desperately needing to know what was going to happen next. I can't recommend this series enough! If you haven't started this trilogy yet, definitely go grab the first book while it's free here. I thought the best way to review the final book was to list some of the reasons why this series became an instant favorite of mine. And they are -✮ A realistic heroine that continually grows - A few months ago I had one friend: Jace. Somehow along this strange journey, I’ve picked up a whole group of friends. Some of them have even become like family. A lump forms in my throat. I was so irritated with Jace for suggesting I needed to get out more, that I needed to try more... Who knew it’d be his kidnapping that precipitated my ability to overcome my fears? - Jax Jax has come such a long way from being the girl who stumbled over her words and and had many panic attacks in Broken Skies. I loved watching her progression throughout this trilogy as she grew into such a strong, confident woman! But the best part was how much faith she found in herself. She put herself in situations to help others, she protected her friends, and the lengths she went to learn her powers was impressive! Jax is definitely one of my favorite heroines!✮ A swoon worthy book boyfriend - His eyes sparkle, and everything he’s feeling washes over me. Desire. Lust. Nervousness. But, most of all, the warmth and light of love. He leans down and puts all of those emotions into a kiss. From the first moment I met Lir, that charming, sarcastic alien quickly won my heart. He pulled me in with his words and actions, and I loved seeing how sweet and thoughtful he could be to Jax. And even though he made mistakes, it made me love him that much more. I was completely infatuated with Lir, can you tell? Plus in each book we got to see certain moments that showed how strong his love was towards Jax. The things he did, ohhhh it was breathtaking.✮ A power couple - He lifts my chin with two fingers and smiles softly. “Thank you.” “For what?” “For pulling me out of there. For wanting to protect me”— a kiss to my forehead—“for being you,”— to the tip of my nose—“for being mine.” His lips brush against mine, softly at first, then harder as he pulls me into his lap and I turn around to frame his hips with my legs. - Jax and Lir Jax and Lir are now a force to be reckoned with. While they each have their own strengths, together they seemed unstoppable. And their faith in one another, along with the sacrifices they made was such a beautiful thing to watch.✮ So many other characters to love - I stammer. “You know that. I mean, I couldn’t even link with you out there in the courtyard. How exactly do you expect me to learn to fly this thing when I haven’t even mastered the basics?” Rym laughs. “The basics? Mind-to-mind communication isn’t exactly basic.” “Still, you want to risk everyone’s lives by letting me try to lift us up into the air and transport us hundreds of miles?” “Why not? What better motivator is there than a life-or-death situation?” His expression is perfectly serious for a moment, then a snorting laugh escapes his mouth. - Jax and Rym Flint, Rym, Jace, Peter, Emily, Stu, Ethan, and so many more became so important to me while I was reading this trilogy. They each stood out, had their own voice and I loved how unique each of their personalities were. I appreciated that each of them played such an important part to this series. And I loved even more how they helped weave the story together. I dare you to try and not get attached to them too!✮ I was on the edge of my seat - The color leeches from Daniel’s face, and my smile only grows. He takes a step back, the gun in his hand forgotten. His bravado is gone. Every single drop. And this is going to be so much fun. - Jax There were so many moments I was beyond nervous for what was going to happen next. It wasn't just because there were so many characters I loved and I was terrified that they would die (oh gosh and some of them do die *sobs*), but it was because there was so much up in the air. There were so many different variables and motives that it was hard to tell at times what would happen next. Which made this series so much fun to devour figuring out all of the clues! But at the same time, there were countless ways for them all to fail. And it definitely seemed like failure would be so much easier than success at times. So this book and series was a huge page turner for me. I couldn't get enough of it.✮ Additional POVs - I’m unpredictable. I’m dangerous. I’m absolutely in-fucking-sane. And I’m not going to get better. - Jace In the first book, it was just Jax's POV. Then in the second, we got to alternate between Jax and Lir. And that made me love Lir even more. But in this final book, we get to be in Jax and Jace's head, Jace is her brother if you need a refresher. And to start off, I wasn't sure how to feel about that. Yes I was gaining more knowledge about what was going on, but her brother's a little crazy ya know. But as the story progressed, I started to realize that the knowledge we were gaining from Jace came at a huge price. You see, I connected with him and his chapters gutted me to the core. He was so broken and the pain and suffering he was going through was more horrific than I ever could have imagined. The farther I got into this book, it felt as though I couldn't escape Jace's chapters without tears in my eyes. His pain was so intense and raw. But it was more than worth it because I never once thought the words Jace and redemption would ever be in the same sentence. But wow, I was proven so wrong. I loved having his POV added to the final book.The Broken Skies Trilogy was filled with peril, heartbreak, action, lies, betrayal, love and I was definitely glued to the pages. I can only hope that all of my friends pick up this trilogy! It's emotionally breathtaking and a must read!***ARC was kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review***For more of my reviews, please visit:

    I received an eARC of this book from the author. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.Shattered Stars is the epic, heart-wrenching conclusion to Theresa Kay's Broken Skies trilogy. Picking up where Fractured Suns left off, Jax, Lir, and their friends find themselves at the mercy of what is left of the US government. Please note that if you have NOT read Broken Skies or Fractured Suns that there are spoilers to those books in this review. Read at your own risk I received an eARC of this book from the author. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.Shattered Stars is the epic, heart-wrenching conclusion to Theresa Kay's Broken Skies trilogy. Picking up where Fractured Suns left off, Jax, Lir, and their friends find themselves at the mercy of what is left of the US government. Please note that if you have NOT read Broken Skies or Fractured Suns that there are spoilers to those books in this review. Read at your own risk from this point on. The story picks up at a fast pace right from page one as Jax and Lir flee her old home and doesn’t slow down. I found that I couldn’t read it fast enough. I needed desperately to know what would happen at each turn of the page right to those final words “the end.” Because of the fast pace, I’m not sure how to summarize this book without giving away spoilers! I’ll just say that the final battle among Lir, Jax, and Jastren is here and it is epic!Jax has to be one of my all-time favorite heroines. Theresa Kay has written her amazingly well. It’s refreshing, really, to see a character who starts so broken in the first book become the heroine in the end. The growth is tremendous, and as the reader, we get to experience it with her. She’s fierce, snarky, loyal to a fault, and out for blood in this book. Yet she’s also confused. Things she believed to be true aren’t and things she believed false are true. Her world has been turned upside down, and despite it all she comes out stronger for it.And then there is Jace. So the first book is told exclusively in Jax’s perspective, the second is told from Lir and Jax’s perspectives which made me really fall for the alien boy, and now in this final installment we get Jax and Jace’s perspective. At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about getting Jace’s POV. To be honest, I was just as angry at him as Jax was and ready to jump through the pages and murder him slowly. Then his first chapter proceeded and my heart broke, like shattered into a thousand pieces that were then stomped on by an angry herd of elephants. From Jax’s perspective, we know that Jace was her rock, her best friend, the only person she loved and the person who kept her sane all those years without their father. She’s built him into this unstoppable force, really she’s idolized him. Then his first chapter begins and as the reader we realize just how wrong she was to do so. This poor broken boy 😭Jastren has destroyed him. He is barely hanging on by a thread, but he knows he has to find Jax, he has to keep her safe, and he has to kill Jastren. I never thought that I’d say this after reading the heartbreaking ending of Fractured Suns but here goes: there is redemption for Jace after all.All the characters in this series have become vital parts of Jax’s life and I love how the author implies this, showing how they all work together and how they inherently trust one another. Living during what they feel is the end of times does that to people. While Jax grew throughout the series, the other characters did as well, especially my alien boy. Lir starts the series as a headstrong, prejudice alien who only wants to get home. Then the events of the second book broke him. He is now as broken as Jax was in the beginning and seeing him this way is truly heartbreaking. He’s slightly unstable, yet it’s his love for Jax and hers for him that brings peace for Lir. I loved reading as their relationship grew and it culminates in this final installment.Overall, I truly loved this trilogy! This final book wraps the series up for Jax and Lir in a beautiful way. The nonstop action, the suspense of not-knowing what’s real and what’s not, and Jace, my beautiful broken boy, and the unstoppable bond between Jax and Lir created an epic, heart-stopping ending to the series. If you are a fan of scifi, alien dystopias, and enjoy a little romance AND haven’t started the series yet, grab a copy of Broken Skies (free on all ebook platforms) and start binging today! If you’re a fan of the series, I promise Shattered Stars doesn’t disappoint!

It’s almost a throw back to the older authors with their deep world building and danger from multiple directions. Such great story telling.Jax is one of my favoritist and most memorable characters I’ve had the pleasure of reading about. I could read about her forever. She’s feisty, intelligent, responsible and incredibly vulnerable. She has no qualms about fighting for what she believes in. One of the things I love about her is the fact that half the time she is playing it by ear. She has no idea how to handle everything going on around but she just doesn’t quit! I can relate so hard to that you guys. She is forgiving and isn’t too proud to accept help when she needs it. I mean, yeah she can be a stubborn little shit too but the good outweighs the bad. 🙂Lir is so understanding, like the perfect counterpart to her wildness and impulsiveness. He grounds her when she needs it and doesn’t try to control her when she gets wild. He just accepts her as she is and loves her. This little alien boy has grown and matured over the course of this series. I think maybe even the most in this book TBH. I really enjoyed this aspect of their relationship. It evolved into something we don’t often see in a Science Fiction/Dystopian.I’m sad to see this story end, hopefully we can get a novella from her cause I need just a little it more to satisfy my love of this world and all its players.

He's the reason where it was all begin, right? for the entire series Jax went here and there to get him back, tried to save him...but maybe that's a reality of war that people die back and front, even people who you thought were too important to die. but thank God the main characters survive and ended up well though there's a great loss.overall this book is super book, great ending to the series. I'm so sad that it was done :(I'm honored to have read an early copy of this, huge thanks to Theresa for sending me an E-ARC of this book :) (hide spoiler)]

    This is the third and, I believe, the final book in the Broken Skies series. It's been a long time coming for me, I remember reading the first book way back when it was first released two years ago. And while I am sad to see the series end, I am happy with how things turned out.Thanks so much to the author for sending me an eARC for an honest review. As always, all opinions are my own.Before I get too far into this review, please be aware that there will likely be spoilers for books one and two This is the third and, I believe, the final book in the Broken Skies series.

And while I am sad to see the series end, I am happy with how things turned out.Thanks so much to the author for sending me an eARC for an honest review. As always, all opinions are my own.Before I get too far into this review, please be aware that there will likely be spoilers for books one and two as this is the third book in the series.Alright, so this book follows Jax and Lir as they continue to forge an alliance with the humans and E'rikon. It's been a while, but I believe that the story picks up soon after book two ends. Jax and Lir are also working towards finding and taking down Jastren, who has Jace held captive. I can't really say too much more without spoiling things, so I will leave it at that.As in the other books, I loved the characters. Jax is just as kick-butt as she was in the first book and her relationship with Lir is swoon-worthy. I just love the two of them together! Lir is also just as wonderful as usual. I really loved the dynamic of their relationship and the ways it grew in this novel.Plotwise, things were a little slow to start. I think I was just so used to the first book being so action-packed that I was expecting more from this one initially. But, I did enjoy the more character-based development that happened throughout the book. There were times when not a lot of action was happening, but the characters were hashing out their issues that had been left to fester for so long. A couple of times I had to stop and question what was the end goal for this book because there was more character development than plot development, but once I figured that out, I got more into the novel. There is definitely lots of action later on, but the beginning is more character-driven.I really liked the alternating POV between Jax and Jace. I've enjoyed Kay's writing style since book one, so I knew that wouldn't be an issue, but I was a little worried about the similarity of the twin's voices. Luckily, they were quite distinct and I had little problem distinguishing between the two. Jace's mind is so broken as a result of his interactions with Jastren and it was fascinating to see the differences between his and his sister's perspective and thought processes.The only issue that stood out to me was the connection/link communication thing. I'm sure it was explained in an earlier book, but it's been so long that I don't remember. Anyway, they communicated through it by thinking to each other instead of talking because it was quicker and easier. I kinda felt like that doesn't make sense. I guess if the other person is already in your head and understands your thoughts before you can formulate a sentence, then it's quicker, but as a reader of the story, having to read their thoughts, it wasn't quicker. And I understand the necessity in a public setting where you want a conversation to be private, but there were times when they were alone and still thought things to each other. I know it's a nit-picky detail, but it is one that comes up quite a bit throughout the book.Overall, I think this was a really great alien series and would definitely recommend it!

Since setting out on her quest, Jax has discovered some startling truths about herself including the abilities that make her the most dangerous weapon there is. She’s also learnt unexpected truths about the E’rikon race as a whole and about the war between humans and Earths alien “invaders”. She’s found new friends and fallen in love, and as Jax and her bondmate Lir attempt to prevent her grandfather from destroying two whole races in his fight for power, Jax and those she loves are in for their most dangerous fight yet. And no everyone will make it out alive…..As far as sci-fi series go, Broken Skies is one of my absolute favourites. In the tradition of the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout and The 100 by Kass Morgan, Broken Skies is a stellar series that features a personable main character, thrilling romance and a fast paced and highly entertaining storyline. I just adore the series Theresa Kay has developed and have enjoyed every moment of this journey with Jax and Lir whose romance is one I have immensely enjoyed.Jax has been a fantastic heroine to follow from start to finish, and I’ve loved seeing her grow so much out of the course of the series. She’s come into her own as her relationship and romance with Lir has given her confidence in herself and those around her. I’ve simply adored the romance between Jax and Lir. It has been electrically charged, endearing, swoon worthy and so very beautiful to witness blossom.Continuing on where the last book left off and following in the footsteps of books one and two, Shattered Stars is a well written and action packed read. I’m really sad to see this series come to an end as I have truly loved it so, but Theresa Kay has concluded it so well. Edge of your seat moments weave with beautiful displays of friendship, family and romance.Shattered Stars is a really heart-wrenching ending, with Theresa Key not holding anything back. Lives are on the line and there are loses, with Jax unable to prevent some of those she loves becoming casualties of war. A thrilling series from the opening chapter all the way to the final page of book three, Broken Skies ends in spectacular fashion with Shattered Stars and I have no doubt the characters will live on in my hearts always.

Jax's relationship with Jace, personal character growth, and some of the side relationships. I particularly liked Gavin, Vestrad, Trel, and Rym's characters in this installment.The plot itself, once it got going, I was pretty impressed with. I liked the twists and the culmination of everything from the first 2 books enmeshing in a cohesive arc.The ending was also good, and I'm notoriously hard on endings of final books in a series, but I thought Kay did a good job wrapping enough things up to be satisfactory and leaving enough open for spinoff novels to be interesting.What I could've done without:Lir and Jax's relationship had a real chemistry lacking for a large portion of the book. There was a clear intention to make Lir's character fallible, but it worked a little too well and while Jax felt that he was ultimately redeemed, I didn't hate him. I just didn't find him appealing. I have a personal dislike for trilogies that go like this: Book 1, no one or almost no one dies. Book 2: you lose 1-2 important characters. Book 3: Dropping like flies, close together, etc. What this would do to a person's psyche notwithstanding, I find it super irritating from a reader's perspective.Jax was kind of all over the place for a while there. I felt like she spent a lot of time pontificating over how she felt and changing her mind, I think this would have been less aggravating. Honestly, I don't know if it just stood out to me or if it was actually that much of that book.Overall, I wasn't unhappy with the book at all. I just wasn't as blown away as I had hoped to be, considering how much I enjoyed the first two.

    Too many deaths. I understood Jace’s – he had done so much that he needed to redeem himself and by sacrificing himself he was able to atone for some of it. Then we had Peter which was sad but I accepted the death of another likable character that mattered to Jax but Emily was one death too many, and in my opinion unnecessary. Or if you were always going to kill Emily then Pete’s death was unnecessary, especially as we had already had a major character death in Finn in book 2 as well as Jace in t Too many deaths.

    A good trilogyWell this final book is a very emotional ride. There is a happy ending for Jax and Lir however they lose lots of friends and family along the way. The book has a solid storyline and the characters are well written. I love the bond between the two main characters and the fact there is no one trying to become between them. This trilogy was a good find .... Highly recommended...

    A brilliant trilogyThis is the last in a great series of sci-fi romances. It has a good balance of action, politics , prejudice, betrayal, ambition, greed and of course love. I recommend this series to any fans of this genre who enjoy a what if aliens lived here scenario without be bogged down by science and politics . And of course romance fans. I look forward to reading more of Kay's work .

    A good conclusion to great series! I didn't love it as much as I loved the first or the second book, because at first, I had some issues at reconnecting with the story after such a long pause, and I found it dragged a bit at some points. Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading about Lir, Jax and the others(RYM!!!I'd love a book from his POV) again.

    I was so happy that I found not only this author, but this series. It let me float away into the story and it was very difficult to put down. I am about to start another series that she has written. I recommend anyone who likes a great story and being present with the book to read this.

    This was a great end to a great series, well worth the long wait. The author mentions at the end she might write a sequel from Rym's perspective and I sooo hope she will. Please, Theresa Kay, please give us more books in the Broken Skies world.

    Great seriesThis book is the conclusion of the Broken Skies trilogy and is worth readers to take a chance with. So many emotions you face while reading this story I believe it to all come together for a great story. Check it out

    What an emotional roller coaster... I laughed, I cried, I threw the book across the room a few times.

    Awesome series!This book was just as great, if not little better, than the others in this series. It never disappoints! It is a must read!
