Harper Teen 2016 Winter Tour - Dark Energy by Robison Wells

I can not begin to tell you how excited I am to be a part of this awesome blog tour highlighting upcoming winter releases from Harper Teen.  Today is stop 11 in a 45 book/45 blogs/45 days make sure to hop all around checking out all the great books and entering the giveaway!  

I get the great pleasure of introducing you to an amazing sounding and looking (that cover is pretty awesome) YA Sci-Fi by author Robison Wells:


Book Description:


Five days ago, a massive UFO crashed in the Midwest, killing thousands of people. Since then, nothing–or no one–has come out.


If it were up to Alice, she’d be watching all of this on the news from Miami, Florida. Instead, she’s the newest student at a boarding school not far from the crash site–because her dad is the director of special projects for NASA, and if anything’s a special project, it’s this.


A shell-shocked country is waiting, glued to televisions and computer screens, for a sign of what the future holds. But when the aliens emerge, they’re nothing like what Alice expected. And only one thing is clear: Nothing will ever be the same again.

Robison Wells is also the author of Blackout, Variant, and Feedback. Variant was a Publishers Weekly Best Book and a YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers. Robison lives in the Rocky Mountains in a house not too far from elk pastures. His wife, Erin, is a better person than he will ever be, and their three kids cause mischief and/or joy.

Robison suffers from five mental illnesses (panic disorder, OCD, agoraphobia, depression and dermatillomania) and is an outspoken advocate for those with mental illnesses.

His books have been published in nine different languages, and he is the winner of many awards both in and out of the United States.
