Helia’s Shadow is a breath of fresh air that we all need.
Saying that I read a lot of YA Science Fiction is just a fact but recently every science fiction book I have read has been similar, with the same story lines and plot twists…
Helia’s Shadow however was different.
It had everything that made a book science fiction but the way it was done was impeccable. Not only because it involved aliens and saving our beloved dying Earth but also because there were plot twists I hadn’t even considered, there was characterization that made one feel connected, the romance was there but never overwhelming and as a whole it was a definite page turner.
Helia’s Shadow kept me up till dawn, on the edge of my seat and craving more of this incredible story.
Helia’s Shadow Blurb:
Nineteen years ago, aliens arrived on a dying Earth with advanced technology and the promise of ensuring human survival in exchange for a place to settle. They were hailed as the saviors of humans and Earth.
Today, 16-year-old Helia wants two things in life: to step out of her over-protective mother’s shadow and become an engineer, and to stop hiding her romance with alien boy Kalo. But the world definitely isn’t ready for a human-alien romance. And worse, the human-alien partnership is crumbling. Humans are being arrested without explanation. Some of them are never seen again.
When the alien leader imprisons her mother on a false charge, Helia discovers the aliens never intended to help humans at all. Now, she must join forces with alien rebels and convince the young rebel leader that humans aren’t expendable. If she succeeds, humans have a chance at survival and she has a chance at love. If she fails, the dwindling human race dies out in slavery.
The aliens arrived to save the doomed planet humans called home, they were praised and labeled liberators of Earth.
But that was before everything changed…
Humans are being taken, arrested without proper explanation and questions are always left unanswered.
Helia lives what is considered a normal life with a protective mother, dreams, wants and of course thoughts about boys but she and her friends are also the ones asking questions, seeking the truth and when they dig too deep trouble arises.
Halia joins the alien rebels and does all she can to save her world once she realizes that the aliens aren’t actually there to help the humans.
Love, loss, mystery and sorrow Halia’s Shadows is a must read for all alien lovers.
I gave Helia’s Shadow five out of five stars and I read it in under 12 hours.
I simply couldn’t put it down…
There are two problems that I have with Helia’s Shadow.
1. I need the second one right now! (And considering it hasn’t been written yet, that may be a problem.)
2. it only comes out on November 23rd which eans I have no one to fangirl with until then.
Be sure to get Helia’s Shadow on November 23rd! I know you will not regret it!
