The Goblin Emperor

"These Broken Stars," by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

These Broken Stars - Amie Kaufman, Meagan Spooner

The Plot: Pampered rich girl Lilac LaRoux (who sounds like a clothing line for French aunts) and lower-class soldier Major Tarver Merendsen are on the same spaceship when it crash-lands on a mysterious planet. Wacky inter-class hijinks and psychic alien powers ensue.

 

The Good:

  • Detailed setting
  • Vaguely interesting plot development at the end

 

The Bad:

  • Goopy romance
  • Cliched characterization and society
  • Danger! Danger! Angst overload! The plot - she can't take anymore!
  • Boring, boring, BORING BORING BORING pacing
  • Heroine is a dull moron
