Firstly, I was a huge fan of These Broken Stars, particularly the amazing audio production. This Shattered World is in the same universe as that book and there is some character overlap/crossover, but TSW could also stand alone.
What I like most about this series is that it takes a fairly classic theme/setup, but before it can feel cliche, the story goes way out there. The basic premise is rebel leader and soldier falling in love and trying to stop the fighting, but it is also way more than that. I won't give specifics as to how it changes as that would be spoilery.
In comparison to These Broken Stars, I think that they are equally good stories but the overall production of TBS is more impressive than TSW. This Shattered World has great narrator performances and very cool sound effects, but These Broken Stars was so phenomenal with their interview segments, voice talent, and sound fx that it's a tough act to follow.
All in all, a great audiobook in its own right and a very satisfying follow-up for fans of TBS. I highly recommend it.

Much like the first book of this series, I was instantly drawn into the story. Again you are transported to a beautifully written Sci-Fi world (set in the same time as the first) with non-stop action and thrills. Although the worlds are similar, the characters, planet and story are very different. Unlike the slow burn of the first book, this one starts out with a bang and never lets up until the end. It was absolutely thrilling. Narration was great too. I can’t wait until the next book by this author.
