I am happy to announce that Broken Skies by the amazing Theresa Kay is now available!
Thirty years ago, there was the Collapse. A massive war fought with biological weapons and followed by plague. Almost everyone died.
Ten years ago, the aliens showed up. They made one of our cities their own and that's where they stay, for the most part anyway.
One year ago, I killed two men and went a little crazy.
Today, the aliens took my brother and I will do whatever it takes to get him back even if it means partnering up with the enemy, an alien boy who makes me think things I shouldn't and makes me feel things I don’t understand.
And that's why I'm ecstatic to announce the birth of Broken Skies by Theresa Kay!
Theresa is my writing partner, so that kind of makes us author sisters, but I'm not just a proud aunt. I guess you could say I was also the ultrasound technician. As the story grew I got the first glimpses, the first pictures. I took measurements, looked for problems, and made sure the heart of the story stayed strong and healthy.
I know Jax and Lir probably better than anyone other than Theresa, and I love them just as much as I love my own characters, so this review can't be like any other I might give. I can't be impartial, but what I can be is honest, and if you read Broken Skies you WILL be blown away and begging for more. I know because I was, and I have, all the time... after every little glimpse I was begging for more, and I still am.
There are so many emotions in this book; determination, fear, sadness, hope, love, joy, betrayal, and anger, just to name a new, and you'll feel them all. Theresa does a wonderful job putting you right into Jax's head and making you at home there, even when it's chaos. The world she creates is rich, vivid, and exciting, and the characters feel real and relatable.
Jax is the perfect heroine in that she's broken and flawed, but one of the most strong and kick-ass girls you'll ever meet, and nothing can get in the way of her protecting the people she loves. Jax learns so much about herself on this journey and what she's capable of, both good and bad.
Lir is... Lir. I LOVE him, everything about him. I can't tell you how many times this man has made me swoon. Don't get me wrong, he's not perfect, it would be boring if he was... but he is amazing.
The fact of the matter is Theresa Kay is an amazing and talented author who wrote an amazing story and you'd be crazy not to read it. Other reviewers (who aren't biased) have said that they would have never guessed Broken Skies was a debut novel because of how well it's written and they speak the absolute truth.
Don't pass up this book!
The only person she knows who had a subscription to Writer's Digest at eleven and was always excited to write research papers, Theresa has been putting words to paper since a young age. She writes predominantly in the sci-fi and urban fantasy genres. Residing in central Virginia, she juggles two kids, a husband and a full-time job in addition to her writing and in her free time she reads almost anything she can get her hands on.
