"Seventeen-year-old Skylar has always been haunted by fleeting yet powerful feelings that something around her has gone wrong. Those impressions have never seemed to reflect anything real, but after she meets a mysterious boy named Win, she learns an unsettling truth: we are not alone on Earth. In fact, visitors from beyond the stars are manipulating our planet and the essential fabric of our world; life as we know it is starting to unravel. And Skylar—and her heightened awareness—just may be the key to our salvation"--www.bookmanager.com.

A little slow at first but things pick up as you keep reading. Time-travel stories always overwhelm my brain a bit, but I was interested in the story enough that I want to read the second book!

The kind of book that keeps you up at night and makes you question the universe. May or may not give you an existential crisis.

If you’re a fan of the show Doctor Who or the video game series Assassin’s Creed, then you’ll be in for a treat with Megan Crewe’s novel Earth & Sky. It has time-traveling aliens, and the characters explore ancient civilizations and significant moments in history.

The novel starts off slow. I’m not particularly a fan of slow beginnings, but I felt this one was necessary for the story. It helps set up the rest of the plot and introduces our main characters. By chapter two, it’s like the whole story bolts off running, never quite slowly down or stopping until the very last page. The quick pace certainly reminded me the sense of urgency the characters were feeling. The story always kept me interested, engaged and wanting to keep returning to the book whenever I had to put it down.

I liked the main characters, Skylar and Win, but I wanted to love them! At times, they felt two-sided, not fully developed. Skylar was either anxious and annoyed or completely confident. She suffered from what seemed like anxiety attacks for years and it felt like she was cured the instant she met Win. I would have preferred it if her character growth was more gradual than sudden. Also, it felt like Skylar jumped at the chance to time travel and agreed to help Win too quickly. I wish it would have taken her more convincing to help him instead of totally acceptance that aliens and time travelling were real. As a part of the theme of my blog, I would deem Skylar as a strong female character. By the end of the novel, she found determination and bravery within herself, not only to travel so far away from home but selflessly chooses to do all she can to save her planet.

So that I can come back knowing that no scientist from beyond the stars will make another change to our history, ever rewrite a life out of existence. As long as I hold onto that, I can handle anything.
