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.

Dark Energy is a Young Adult Science Fiction story about aliens. The main character is named Alice and her father works for Nasa so they are brought to the crash site of the aliens for her father to work. Alice is enrolled in a school nearby that houses full-time high school students called Minnetonka. 

The story is all about how Alice and her friends view the aliens arrival and the subsequent events that follow. You get a in-depth look at how it would feel if aliens actually did descend on the earth and how the government would react. 

I really enjoyed the story being told by Alice and her friends and the experiences they went through and the honest reactions that each of the characters had as the dealt with the arrival of the aliens. 

The plot twist was very interesting to me and really grabbed my attention and made me want to keep reading. Overall, this was a very interesting book and if you like science fiction then I would definitely try it out!!
