Welcome to my second post for the Balance Broken Blog Tour. I loved this book so much I had to create another post – a Bookish Mood Board! You can see my first post which was my 5 star review!
Balance Broken is the second in the Starbright series. In the first book, Justice Buried, Astrea fights to remain independent in a world which demands she submit to an ancient prophecy. In Balance Broken, she learns that independence means little when the world is depending on her.
The world cries for Order, but she’s igniting a revolution.
One hundred years before, the Great Sickness reduced the world to three cities. Now, Asphodel no longer lingers underground, and the Starbright Maiden of Justice has returned.
Everyone has faith in Astrea’s ability to save the world – but only she knows the dark truth about her powers.
Astrea teams with Stian, Lexan, and Zarea to enlist the help of Lord Hadeon of Tartarus. They hope Hadeon will aid in attacking Asphodel’s First Leader Keirna, but the Destroyer usually takes lives, not sides.
As Astrea discovers life outside of Asphodel, she begins to wonder whether the remaining world is too broken to save – especially since the price of freedom just might be her own life.

Mood boards are a collage consisting of images and text. Nereyda at Mostly YA Book Obsessed has started sharing her Book Mood Boards which combines her creativity and love of books. This is a fun way to visually illustrate a story. Nereyda’s boards are amazing so you have to visit her blog to check them out!
The Starbright series is about 16-year-old Astrea, the supposed savior of the world. According to the prophecy she is the maiden of Justice. As soon as I found this image of Lady Justice I knew it was perfect for Astrea. Astrea is expected to render justice “without passion or prejudice” (the blindfold) by balancing the facts of a case (the scales) and with authority (the sword). I hate to give a spoiler but I loved how the author used these symbols throughout the story. It is a creative and exciting aspect for this series. The images of the fire and wind represent Astrea and Lexan – their zodiac symbols (plus more – but you have to read the story!!).
