When Planets Fall by Abby J. Reed is published by Soul Mate Publishing with a publication date of April 12th 2017. The genres of this book are fantasy, science fiction, and young adult. Reed creates a unique plot line where humans exist along side two other races where all three possess different colors of blood and some different characteristics. The way the author writes this it almost pulls you in and holds your attention. Breaker and Malani have strong chemistry with lots of ups and downs. Their relationship is very give and take. The story focuses a lot on world building and it grows steadily through the story as the characters figure out different things that piece together what their past really is and the possibilities their futures hold. There is also a lot of types of disabilities like migraines, panic attacks, and PTSD. I felt like the ending was a complete surprise for me. One that I did not see coming. I did find this to be a great read. **I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**
SYNOPSIS: Breaker’s home is cleaved by blood. The three tribes on the planet Scarlatti, whose only difference is their blood color, each want to exploit Breaker’s valley for themselves. The feudal tension has already claimed red-blood Breaker’s leg and his older brother. Now all this 18-year old wants is to maintain the tenuous peace in order to keep his little ‘stroid of a brother alive. Malani, a red-blood raised blue, is a kidnapped POW and only wants to return to her adoptive home with her dangerous blue secrets. Luka, a red-blood stewing for trouble, wants to right wrongs done to his family and bath his home in justice. All three intersect when Breaker discovers a wrecked starship and is given seven days by the green-bloods to fix and hand it over as a weapon. Breaker must decide if aiding his enemies is worth the home he knows and his family’s life. War is coming. And war respects no boundaries. And war leaves no survivors.
