Charlotte asked:

I accidentally bought this book before 'These Broken Stars' but I still really want to read it, will I be able to understand about the world and everything else if I read this book first since they're are companion novels?

Erin No, you won't be able to understand everything. The conflict of this book is a continuation of the conflict from These Broken Stars. I recommend reading TBS first as it gives you more of an insight to the characters. To understand the whispers and the Icarus crash and LRI's involvement you need to read the first book, otherwise you're going to be lost when Lilac and Tarver are talking as well as when the whispers are mentioned.
