In seventeen-year-old Jax Mitchell's world, humans are nearly extinct and alien settlers have arrived.

Until recently, the E’rikon have remained segregated in their city and ignored the few humans who have tried to engage them… but now they have taken Jax’s brother. To rescue him, she forms an uneasy alliance with a teenage E’rikon left stranded in the woods. She agrees to guide him to the city if he sneaks her past the human-proof barrier. Too bad it’s not that simple.

Jax, who cannot stand to be touched, finds that she’s drawn to the alien boy with bright green hair and jewel-like scales down his back. And he’s equally affected by her, the courageous redhead with haunted eyes. But she doesn’t know the alien’s true motives and he has no idea that she is much more than she seems.

In this world where alien and human are at odds, the connection forming between the two has consequences. What started off as a rescue mission sets a chain of events in motion which threatens not only the remaining humans and the growing alien society, but Earth itself.

4 out of 5 (very good)

I received this book from Barclay Publicity in return for a fair and honest review

Broken Skies is a young adult, dystopian sci-fi adventure, all rolled into one amazing and intricate story that comes complete with its own cliffhanger ending that will leave you wanting more. The story starts off simple enough - a girl and her twin brother are staying in a village where they are supposed to be safe. The girl feels stifled however and plans to speak with her brother about moving back to their cabin. Unfortunately, her brother is captured by 'aliens' before she has chance to and no one else seems bothered about rescuing him, so she will do it herself.

As this story moves along, you are introduced to more characters and scenarios, that are all fantastically written. No character can be taken at face value and the story gets more layered as you progress which means that by the time you are even right near the end, you are loving every moment for the detail that you are being given.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can't wait to read book 2! Definitely recommended to all YA, Dystopian and Sci-Fi fans out there. Just be prepared for this book to pack a punch, especially when decisions have to be made. 

Author Bio: 
The only person she knows who had a subscription to Writer's Digest at eleven and was always excited to write research papers, Theresa has been putting words to paper since a young age. Living in the mountains of central Virginia with her husband and two kids, she works as a paralegal by day, binges on Netflix at night and finds bits of time in between reading almost everything she can get her hands on and laundry to craft stories that tend to feature broken characters in sci-fi or paranormal worlds, with a touch of romance thrown in for good measure. She's constantly lost in one fictional universe or another and is a self-proclaimed “fangirl” who loves being sucked in to new books or TV shows. Theresa originally wanted to write horror novels as an ode to her childhood passion for Stephen King, but between her internal Muse’s ramblings and the constant praise for her sci-fi pieces from her writer’s group – The Rebel Writers – she knew she should stick with what was working.
