[ARC Review] Colliding Skies by Debbie Zaken


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.


Oh what an emotional rollercoaster from beginning to end! I was immediately ensnared and I finished this book in a few hours. Colliding Skies is definitely a mix of The 5th Wave and Star Crossed (tv show) that I believe everyone will love. This book has everything that I loved, sci-fi, aliens, star crossed romance, an intriguing plot, and SPACE. I won't forget how Skye and Ethan made me feel. I simply could not put this book down. 

SKYE LOVES SPACE AND SO DO I. I love her. The way she expresses her love for the stars makes my heart soar. And when Skye and Ethan try to out smart each other on who really knows space, my heart flips. And Skye isn't one of those characters who just goes with it when the male MC says "oh I'm an alien, believe me", she questions everything. Skye is smart but she makes mistakes and admits to them too. 

I'm honestly so happy because of the number of space references. The book ends in a bit of a cliffhanger but I eagerly await book 2!

Overall I would give Colliding Skies 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
