Book Review: Broken Skies by Theresa Kay

Book Review Tuesday and today's book is:

Broken Skies by Theresa Kay

This is my first ever Alien book and I loved and I'm just going to jump into this spoiler free review before I just start blabbing non stop.

This book follows 17 year old Jax, who lives in a world where Aliens have come to earth and they are staying.  There aren't many humans around anymore, and the few that are around live together in small civilizations.  The E'rikon (Aliens) have remained segregated in their city and ignored the humans that is until now, that they have taken Jax's twin brother and left one of their own behind instead.

Jax takes the teenage E'rikon back to camp in secret because she forms an alliance with him to rescue her brother.  But of course nothing is as easy, the E'rikon gets discovered, Jax gets help from another girl from camp to get him and her out of there so she can go get her brother.  After a difficult night, she finally escapes camp and starts her plan to get to the city of E'rikon and rescue of brother.

But, Jax doesn't know the true motives of the teenage E'rikon and why he has agreed to help her, but she doesn't care, first she has to worry about saving her brother then she will worry about him.  However with days passing, and the dangerous that the face together, they both realize that they are equally affect by each other and a connection between them are formed.

Soon, they realize what each others true motives are and the consequences are not easy to take in and what started as an "easy" rescue mission turns out to be much more than they want.  Decisions that have to do with the Human and Alien race and Earth itself.

This book was such a quick read, but expect lots of action and to be fast passed.  I felt like I was on the edge of my seat a lot of the time.  And at the end?  I needed the second right away, but unfortunately it's not out yet and there isn't an out date yet WHY???

5 out of 5 stars for sure...Totally recommend this book.  If you have never read an Alien book, start with this book, you will love it.
