Today I have a review for you guys. And the good news for you is that the book comes out tomorrow!! So if you are interested in reading Colliding Skies (which was amazing by the way) you can already have it tomorrow.
Without further ado let’s start with the review!
Since Skye Reilly can remember, she has been looking up to the stars. With high school graduation upon her, her telescope in one hand and her college acceptance letter in the other, she has life as meticulously mapped out as her star chart. That is, until the Celeians arrive and she meets Ethan, an alluring alien. Ethan collides into her like an asteroid, causing a gravitational shift in Skye’s trajectory and hurling her life into a cataclysmic collision course of interplanetary proportions.
The Celeians promise many things. An end to disease, global warming, and famine. The knowledge to help humankind. Despite the suspicions surrounding the intriguing aliens and rising anti-alien protests, Skye gives Ethan her trust, and eventually her heart. The very heart he could stop with a lethal electrifying touch of his hand.
When the Magistrate, a council of alien leaders, threatens to put an end to their interspecies relationship, following her heart could cost Skye her life and the lives of everyone she loves.
Not even light can escape the pull of a black hole.

# What I liked
So, first of all, I really liked the alien invasion. Alien coming down on planet earth and looking like human beings. (Only flaw they are perfect in every way imaginable) And that already at the beginning of the book! I really enjoyed that because the author came directly to the point! Next thing I like in a sci-fi book is when Space is involved. I’m kind of fascinated by Space. Don’t ask me why because I don’t have an answer to that but I’m just obsessed with it. (Fun Fact: I hate Star Wars).
Colliding Skies is a fast-paced novel and I’m sure that most of the sci-fi lovers will enjoy reading. Skye’s parents were hilarious! I really loved them and it’s too bad that I didn’t think of underlining some quotes so that I could share them with you.
And in this book, we also get a cliffhanger to enjoy. I think by now everyone knows that I love these. However only when they are well written and here it was the case. I can’t wait for the next book to come out and read more about Skye and the aliens.
I also know that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but please look at this! It’s b-e-a-u-tiful!!! And the story is great!
# What I disliked
I didn’t like the love triangle. It felt awkward. (I know love triangles should feel awkward. But yeah I didn’t like it here) I just thought that it happened too fast. Another thing I didn’t enjoy was that the aliens were too perfect. They had no flaws, they were intelligent, beautiful and superior in every way.
# Favourite Character
Taylor! He was that kind of person that I would be during a space invasion. So I could really relate. And I’m not going into any details. Read the book for yourselves to find out what I mean!
