Alice Goodwin is not happy that the aliens crash landed
in the Midwest. Rather than enjoying the warmth of sunny
Miami, Florida, she's had to travel with her father to
the cold of Minnesota. After all, Alice's dad is the
director of special projects at NASA, and the aliens are
currently his top priority. Now Alice finds herself
enrolled at a boarding school, the Minnetonka School for
the Gifted and Talented, while all the news is focused on
the nearby alien crash landing site. What will they
discover when the aliens emerge from their UFO?
Alice is a great heroine! She has just enough quirkiness
to make her interesting, and I absolutely love her sense
of humor! Her relationship with her dad is refreshing to
see in young adult literature as the two of them are
close and caring despite their very busy schedules.
However, it is Alice's loyalty to her friends and her
determination to do the right thing that I love the most.
DARK ENERGY takes some unusual twists, but I particularly
love Robison Wells's approach to the aliens. I was a
little worried when Alice enrolled at the boarding school,
but Robison Wells does a marvelous job at engaging the
reader in the plot and keeping the aliens relevant to the
storyline, even as Alice is adjusting and making new
friends. My only disappointment with DARK ENERGY is that
the conclusion of the book is truly the end. I don't
see any hint of a series, and I'm just not ready to let go
of the wonderful characters Robison Wells has created in
DARK ENERGY is an unexpected surprise! I've read a couple
books by Robison Wells and thoroughly enjoyed them, but
DARK ENERGY just blew me away. The twists and turns give
us a whole new perspective on aliens, and I highly
recommend DARK ENERGY to any reader who enjoys aliens or
science fiction stories. Don't miss out on reading DARK
ENERGY as Robison Wells has crafted one heck of a great
story for readers!
We are not alone. They are here. And there’s no going back.
Perfect for fans of The Fifth Wave and the I Am Number Four
series, Dark Energy is a thrilling stand-alone science fiction
adventure from Robison Wells, critically acclaimed author of
Variant and Blackout.
Five days ago, a massive UFO crashed in the Midwest. Since then,
nothing—or no one—has come out.
If it were up to Alice, she’d be watching the fallout on the
news. But her dad is director of special projects at NASA, so
she’s been forced to enroll in a boarding school not far from the
crash site. Alice is right in the middle of the action, but even
she isn’t sure what to expect when the aliens finally emerge.
Only one thing is clear: everything has changed.
