Series: Earth & Sky Trilogy
Author: Megan Crewe
Publisher: Razorbill Canada
Publication Date: 10/28/2014
Synopsis from Goodreads: Seventeen-year-old Skylar has been haunted for as long as she can remember by fleeting yet powerful sensations that something is horribly wrong. But despite the panic attacks tormenting her, nothing ever happens, and Sky’s beginning to think she’s crazy. Then she meets a mysterious, otherworldly boy named Win and discovers the shocking truth her premonitions have tapped into: our world no longer belongs to us. For thousands of years, Earth has been at the mercy of alien scientists who care nothing for its inhabitants and are using us as the unwitting subjects of their time-manipulating experiments. Win belongs to a rebel faction seeking to put a stop to it, and he needs Skylar’s help–but with each shift in the past, the very fabric of reality is unraveling, and soon there may be no Earth left to save.

As much as I wanted to love this trilogy, I simply didn’t. I couldn’t read past the first couple of chapters in any of the books. They simply weren’t that great. Nothing captured my attention in any of them. Of course, to fully understand The Clouded Sky (book 2) and A Sky Unbroken (book 3) you need to read Earth & Sky (book 1). But after five or six chapters of Earth & Sky, I was totally confused and highly disinterested.
Skylar (Sky) is a shallow character whose main concern is her own little world and whether or not something is “wrong.” While this does play into the plot of the book, I just found her to be a shallow, vapid character as she didn’t seem to have any regard for others, only herself. And the premise that she could be one of the few people on the planet who are able to tell when an alien race has “messed with” Earth, while it might sound interesting at first, ended up being less than stellar in execution.
I definitely would not recommend The Earth & Sky Trilogy to anyone unless utter confusion six chapters into a story is your thing.
I received a copy of this book free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
