‘We’re going to be fine.’ He looks around, but there’s nothing out here: nothing but the bottomless black universe on their left, the Earth suspended in glorious technicolour to their right.
Carys and Max have ninety minutes of air left.None of this was supposed to happen.But perhaps this doesn’t need to be the end…
Adrift in space with nothing to hold on to but each other, Carys and Max can’t help but look back at the well-ordered world they have left behind – at the rules they couldn’t reconcile themselves to, and a life to which they might now never return.For in a world where love is banned, what happens when you find it?
Hold Back the Stars is a love story like no other.
Why We’re Waiting On It
This sounds like what Passengers should have been but never was. A love story in space where you only have 90 minutes to sort through your life, feelings, and say your goodbyes? We are expecting an emotional ride and cannot wait to see what is in store for Carys and Max. This is going to be a sad but fun read and we are really excited to get our hands on it. However, you should know that it comes out in the UK in January, but in North America it doesn’t release until May, so if you want it right away, buy from TBD!
