WoW: DARK ENERGY (Robison Wells)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Dark Energy
Title: Dark Energy
Author: Robison Wells
Release Date: March 29, 2016
Publisher: HarperTeen
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.

Why I'm Looking Forward To It: I am on a serious alien kick right now and this is exactly the kind of situation I adore - need to get my hands on this, stat!

So what book are you waiting on?


  1. Love the cover but historically I have never done well with alien novels. I may wait to see what some people say about this one before picking it up (I am one of the odd people who didn't like The 5th Wave very much). Thanks for sharing this one.

  2. Great Pick. This one is totally new to me. Thanks for putting it on my radar :)

    Happy Reading
