Since Skye Reilly can remember, she has been looking up to the stars. With high school graduation upon her, her telescope in one hand and her college acceptance letter in the other, she has life as meticulously mapped out as her star chart. That is, until the Celeians arrive and she meets Ethan, an alluring alien. Ethan collides into her like an asteroid, causing a gravitational shift in Skye’s trajectory and hurling her life into a cataclysmic collision course of interplanetary proportions.
The Celeians promise many things. An end to disease, global warming, and famine. The knowledge to help humankind. Despite the suspicions surrounding the intriguing aliens and rising anti-alien protests, Skye gives Ethan her trust, and eventually her heart. The very heart he could stop with a lethal electrifying touch of his hand. When the Magistrate, a council of alien leaders, threatens to put an end to their interspecies relationship, following her heart could cost Skye her life and the lives of everyone she loves.
Not even light can escape the pull of a black hole.
About Debbie Zaken (Ft. Lauderdale, Florida Author)
Debbie received her first library card at the tender age of six and still remembers walking out as if she’d just been handed one of Willy Wonka’s golden tickets. After that, it was rare not to find Debbie enwrapped in a book. It was only a matter of time before the stories that played in her head found their way to the page.
Born in Miami, Debbie grew up in Guatemala and is fluent in English, Spanish, and Hebrew. She currently resides with her husband and her two fabulously trilingual and adorable girls in South Florida.
Her debut novel, Colliding Skies, received 1st place in the Society for Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators Florida Rising Kite Award. When she is not writing, working, or performing some feat of mommy magic, Debbie can be found reading, binge watching Netflix, running, or fangirling Muse.
