Produktbeschreibungen

Kurzbeschreibung

Thirty years ago, civilization collapsed. Few survived.
Ten years ago, the aliens arrived…and stayed.
One year ago, I killed two men and went a little crazy.
Today, the aliens took my brother and I will do anything to get him back.

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.

This is a new release of a previously published edition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beware - Will give you an epic book hangover 11. März 2014
Von Lenore L Kosinski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a digital arc of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review....and now I may never recover.

Well....I am currently in epic book hangover mode. Not only did I stay up until the wee hours finishing this book, I have also just spent most of today sitting around, staring blankly at the walls, trying to recover. Have you ever watched the Sing-Off?? Shawn Stockman always talks about how when you hear a good song, sometimes you get the stank face (where it looks like you smelled something bad), b/c the song is just so good. This book gave me the stank face. And now I have the great burden of trying to figure out why I loved it so much so that you may also be convinced.

I haven't read a lot of sci-fi's, but not for lack of interest. More b/c I've been caught up in this paranormal trend, and so I just haven't sought out any recommendations for good sci-fi.

I'm not sure where I was going with that....let me start again. Characters. Characters are the meat of a book for me -- they will make or break a book on my personal taste scale. Well great big check mark there. I really fell in love with Jax....she was so damaged and broken, yet strong, sassy, willful.... And all the secondary characters were well developed....enough to make me intrigued by them -- Emily, Jace, Flint.... Even the bad guys effectively made me rage in hatred for them.

And then there's Lir. OH Lir. What were you thinking??? OK, I don't think I can talk about him b/c he made me feel so much and I'm still recovering. But seriously, the chemistry between Lir and Jax was off the charts....such a subtle build up, packed with the occasional roadblocks. Enough to make me fall for them as a couple and thus feel all the heart ripping out agony as they went through their troubles.

LOVED the world that Ms. Kay built. I could really visualize it, from the Bridgelake settlement, to the abandoned towns, to the alien city, and even the aliens themselves.

Now my only problem is that I need the next book NOW NOW NOW, and this book hasn't even been released yet. The conundrum of reading an arc. I guess that's not my only problem....my more immediate problem is -- what in the world am I going to read now??? Epic book hangover.

5.0 von 5 Sternen GO. READ. THIS. BOOK. NOW. It will break your heart. 19. Dezember 2014
Von Sabrina Wolfheart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
SOURCE: Received review copy from publisher in exchange for an unbiased and honest review (Thanks so much, Skyscape!)

I. AM. SOBBING.

WHEN WILL THE NEXT BOOK BE OUT BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW AND THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE AND THAT CLIFFHANGER WAS NOT FUNNY, MISS KAY.

*sobs* Okay. Yes. I can talk now. Well, why is this now my new favorite book? What in the world, you say, could replace What’s Left of Me and Harry Potter, at least for the time being? (Okay, well, maybe not Harry Potter–you get what I mean.)

THE CHARACTERIZATION WAS THE MOST MAGNIFICENT THING IN THE WORLD AND– Oh, sorry. Am I shouting again? That was not intended. But LIR and JAX. And, okay, I didn’t like him much, but JACE.
Um, have I mentioned the beautiful cliffhanger at the end? And you know the type of cliffhanger that’s done just right that doesn’t make you super duper annoyed, but the makes-you-want-to-sob-with-all-the-feels type?
And sure there have been some instances of spotty characterization and whatnot and weird gaps in the worldbuilding, BUT I CAN OVERLOOK THOSE THINGS BECAUSE THE CHARACTERIZATION WAS BEAUTIFUL and I am dying because Fractured Suns won’t be out until 2015.
The Characterization

Was. Awesome.

Jax. Or “Jasmine,” if you want to use her full name. No offense to the Jasmines out there or whatever but if I was named Jasmine, I would totally shorten it to Jax. Who, by the way, is awesome. And totally relatable. And basically wonderful in every aspect. And now I’m going to stop before I just keep rambling. Oh, and she’s totally an awesome strong female character, too.

Lir. Okay. Well. You see. Everything was going just fine with this book, all fine and dandy and I had my feels COMPLETELY SORTED OUT… and then he happened and I don’t even know where to start. I will just tell you one thing: this guy makes the entire book worth reading. And I don’t often say that, but Lir was just so beautifully deep and complex and something that you really don’t get to see in YA literature a lot. ESPECIALLY in YA literature. There are lots of “bad boys with dark mysterious secrets” in YA, but how about we throw in someone actually, uh, nice for once? Noooo, that would be bad, said the authors. They were wrong.

Jace. Jace is Jax’s brother, and her twin. After Jax kills two men, he ends up caring for their entire family. Though I have to admit, once we actually, truly met him at the end of the book, I was less than enamored with him.

The Plot

Was again, nothing short of amazing.

I didn’t predict anything. Maybe it’s because I’m a horribly half-blind reader who refuses to turn the font size up on her Kindle, but everything. Shocked. Me. And in a good way. You know those books that are just go-go-go with no time for character building? Well, Broken Skies actually devotes a good amount of its 372 pages to character development. All of which I loved. And then all of which I hated at the end of the book. Thank you for my feels, Miss Kay. Thank you. *sobs*

The Two Problems I Have With This Book?

And honestly? They’re minor.

Problem #1: I didn’t get the title at ALL. I mean, I guess Jax likes the clouds a ton? But really, I don’t see what makes the skies “broken.” And the cover REALLY doesn’t do the awesomeness of the book justice, at least to me. But I still picked it up: AND YOU SHOULD, TOO!

Problem #2: Okay, so here’s the one that’s really bugging me. This book doesn’t pass the Bechdel Test. (Or whatever the Bechdel Test’s equivalent is in novels.) In order for something to pass the Bechdel Test it must (1) feature two women who (2) talk (3) something other than a man. And the sad truth is that the majority of popular fiction doesn’t pass it. In Broken Skies, Jax is one of the few strong female characters around, and oppressed in a world surrounded by males. Women are rare, and therefore valued. They’re also supposed to be subordinate to men (something else that Jax hates; go Jax!), because there’s a shortage of them. Jax talks to her neighbor Emily about Lir, and then a little about pretty dresses, which doesn’t really count. And then to Vira… again about Lir? Oh, and two lines about her possibly-impending-death threat. Which, you know, is nothing major. And I’m not counting Stella because she’s like seven and doesn’t count as a “woman.”

So basically, go read this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Holy Alien Amazingness! 11. März 2014
Von Caylie M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
First, I suppose, let me tell you that I've never been one to read sci-fi. It takes a lot for me to even read paranormal, but it seems lately, that's all I've been reading. So, I can do all the paranormal stuff... but Aliens? Ugh. Really? You want me to like creepy aliens?!

But damn it if Theresa didn't succeed in making me fall for a freaking alien!

So in the beginning I was torn between Lir and Flint. Flint seemed like a good guy - wanted to take care of Jax... and he is and he does... it just seems that he wants to take care of someone else more. MIND BLOWN! Did *not* see that coming.

Let's talk about Mr. Alien himself...Lir. I mean... LIR. Sweet lord... I don't even know what to say about him. He's hot. He's cold. He's hot again. He's confusing as ever. And then... BAM!! OhMyGod... LIR?!?! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! (<--- My Exact reaction).

And Jax - the awesome bad ass protagonist, who is more than she seems. I kind of thought I was going to be annoyed by her in the beginning, but she makes it really easy for you to care about her.

I really feel like I was just digging deeper into the story, when it was OVER! I mean, there was a whole story arc, but I felt like we were just getting to the *even more* good stuff.

Cliffhanger.... Just going to say that.

This book had me ALL OVER THE PLACE. Happy, sad, angry, tummy fluttery, giddy, outraged, betrayed....just... all over the place.

With all that being said... CAN FRACTURED SUNS COME OUT NOW PLEASE?!?!? I mean, I realize this book *just* came out... but I wouldn't mind for Fractured Suns to come out tomorrow. I'm just saying... GIVE THE FANS WHAT THEY WANT!

Freaking amazing... Thanks for sucking me into the world of aliens.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great 1st Book in new YA SciFi series 1. August 2014
Von PerryMartinBookReviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Theresa Kay's 1st book in Broken Skies series is narrated by 1st time narrator Andrea Emmes. Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform; 1 edition (March 10, 2014)

Andrea has the perfect voice for the lead character and voices the other characters from old to the very young both male and female very well. Theresa Kay has given proper respect to each genre in this Science Fiction, Young Adult, and Dystopia collaboration.

The story starts off quickly and catches you up along the way with details as needed in this fast passed audiobook. Jax Mitchell's world has been a little crazy. Her mom died at the birth of her and her twin brother and their father died after raising them through their early teens. 

The earth was deveststed 30 years prior by man made biological weapons and then 10 years ago the E'rikon arrived. Aliens who created their own domed city where they lived not helping or communicating with the people of earth.

Until now... When Jax and her brother see an E'rikon craft land in a field she climbs a tree to investigate. After being seen her brother acts as a decoy so she can escape. When the E'rikon take her brother and leave a disabled one of their own behind Jax will do anything to get her brother back. Even if she has to work with the unknown alien to do it.

This story and direction of this First book, in what I hope will be a continuing series on audiobook, is a great attention keeping book.

This book was gifted to me for an honest review.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Solid Start 28. März 2014
Von Jill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have a love/hate relationship with science-fiction novels, but when I saw this book, I was drawn in not only by the lovely cover design, but the intriguing plot too. All in all, this is a solid read that those who read this genre, as well as YA romance and dystopian settings, will enjoy. It's worth a read.

I really liked the way that author Theresa Kay described both the characters and the world around them. I very much felt as if I was exploring nature and the city alongside the characters, and that's a great trait for a book to have. I was also smitten with her descriptions of the aliens. They sounded so beautiful and mysterious, I wanted to get a glimpse of them for myself.

This is a book that paints a vivid picture of a future after a collapse of the human world as we know it. It has a little something for everyone. Whether it be romance, aliens, dystopia, or female leads, you can pick your poison when it comes to Broken Skies. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Be prepared for a cliffhanger
