When a plane crashes in the woods near Jess’s home, the boy of her dreams falls out of the sky—literally. But David’s not here to find a girlfriend. He’s from another planet, and if Jess can’t help him get back to his ship, he’ll be stuck on Earth with nothing to look forward to but the pointy end of a dissection scalpel. Her father runs their house like an army barracks, and with an alien on the loose, Major Dad isn’t too keen on the idea of Jess going anywhere. Ever. So how the heck is she supposed to help the sweetest, strangest, and cutest guy she’s ever met? Hiding him in her room probably isn’t the best idea. Especially since her Dad is in charge of the squadron searching for David. That doesn’t mean she won’t do it. It just means she can't get caught. As they race through the woods with Major Dad and most of the U.S. military one breath behind them, Jess and David grow closer than either of them anticipated. But David has a genocide-sized secret, and one betrayal later, they are both in handcuffs as alien warships are positioning themselves around the globe. Time is ticking down to Armageddon, and Jess must think fast if she's to save the boy she cares about without sacrificing Earth—and everyone on it.

I kind of loved this alien story because it doesn't feel like a Sci-Fi alien story. It's a story about a girl that lives on a military base and the guy she finds in the woods that just happens to be the alien that crash landed there and that her dad and the whole army are looking for. No big deal, right? The first three books in the series are already available and this is the type of series you'll want to binge read!
This book was so much fun to read! I sped through it so quickly. It is an easy read. Jess and David are adorable. If you are a fan of the show Roswell you will fall in love with this book! The characters were easy to fall in love with. I enjoyed every second of reading this book. There was plenty of adventure, love, thrills, and action. This book had originality and creativity. I loved the name of the alien race and that they had their own language. Everything flowed so well and I was never bored while reading this book. My only complaint was that it ended so soon. I wanted more. The main character Jess is a pretty tough chic who stands up for what she believes in. She is on a mission and she is not going to stop until she completes it. David was an interesting character as well and had a very unique way of showing affection. If you love aliens as much as I do then you don't want to miss this book. The second novel Ashes In The Sky was just recently released this month. Get both so you don't have to wait like I do. I wish I would have picked up the second one as soon as it came out. I wanted to continue reading as soon as this book ended. I am highly anticipating reading the next one. In hope that there will be a third as well! If you are looking for a fun and exciting new YA alien series to read then pick this one up. The adventure is just getting started. I expect that it is only going to get better.
Do you love aliens? Are you obsessed with places out of this world? If aliens ever came to Earth, would you cheer "take me to your leader"? If so, then Fire in The Woods is a must read for you! I loved, loved, LOVED reading this book! Jennifer Eaton took my breath way with her creative characters and exciting alien adventure. Her alien humor was off the charts, and she had me guessing at ever twist and turn. This one was a very fast and amazing read. Full of adventure, mystery, and romance, Fire in The Woods is definitely one of my favorite alien reads this year!
Fire in the woods would be a book I would recommend to everyone!!
