After the Collapse wiped out more than 90 percent of humanity, the aliens arrived. Known as the E'rikon, they sit within a shielded city, content to ignore the dwindling human settlements. Seventeen-year-old tomboy Jax Mitchell and her twin brother, Jace, are among the survivors, living within the community of Bridgelake.

When a terrified yet defiant Jax watches the E'rikon kidnap Jace, she decides to rescue him on her own. Wracked by crippling nightmares and panic attacks, Jax finds an ally in Lir, a handsome teenage E'rikon who was left behind by his ship. The two of them form a unlikely partnership, with Jax guiding Lir through human territory while the alien promises to sneak her into the E'rikon city. But as Jax's connection with Lir intensifies, she discovers a shocking secret--one that could have catastrophic effects on human and aliens. 


Look out, here comes some alien love. Absolutely adored this one! It has become one of my sci-fi favorites, right up there with Fire in the Woods and Alienated. Theresa has blown me away with her excellent characters and unforgettable plot line. My favorite character has got to Jax herself, one she's kind of a bad-ass, and two because she's curious and adventurous about everything, like me. I also liked Theresa's minor characters like Flint, Peter, and Emily. I also enjoyed seeing the struggles both the humans and the E'rikons had through out the book, and then seeing their conflict with each other at the end. Bottom line, loved the plot, the theme, the characters, and everything about this book. I plan on reading more from Theresa in the future, and can't wait for Fractured Suns. So, until then, I'll be waiting.
