On a planet where the only difference between three tribes is their blood color, war is on the horizon. Breaker, an amputee, wants peace for his family and home.

All three teens come together when Breaker is given seven days to fix a wrecked enemy starship or their home, and peace, is forfeit.

Thanks to the #kidlitexchange network for sending me a free copy of the book - all opinions are my own. When Planets Fall is built around a very intriguing premise: the color of your blood determines your caste in society. It starts with a bang, featuring Breaker and his leg and his younger brother. It felt like I was tossed right into the middle of the story, and it was fun trying to connect all the dots as I immersed myself into this world. There were a lot of unique and bold characters in the story, which always makes for an exciting read. I’ll be completely honest and say that this book has a lot of potential for readers who enjoy fantasy and the excitement that comes with these dystopian-like settings, but I struggled with it. I don’t have much to say about it, but not because it was bad. It simply just didn’t stick with me. I think I read it at the wrong time. I’m giving it three stars, a “good” rating, but I feel pretty confident that it’s going to rate higher for plenty of other readers. I would recommend picking it up if you’re intrigued by the synopsis.

I loved When Planets Fall. It was amazing, fun, heart-wrenching and did I mention amazing? When Planets Fall takes place on the planet Scarlatti where there are three different tribes with different blood colors; red, blue and green that are at war with each other. Breaker is a red-blood that gets caught in between when he discovers an abandoned starship. It had a great well written plot filled with action, surprises, some romance and twist and turns even till the very last page! There were some really great characters in this book! I really liked Breaker's character as he would do anything to keep his family safe, especially his little brother Brody while Malani was strong willed and stubborn. I also liked how the book was told from Breaker's, Malani's and Luka's P.O.V so we get a better feel of what they are thinking. When Planets Fall was really enjoyable and I am really looking to see what happens next! I would definitely recommend this book for fans of fantasy, action and those looking for something fresh and new to read!

When Planets Fall is the first book in a space saga that starts on the planet of Scarlatti. There are three races that live here, and they all seem to be in constant conflict and live in communities that resemble war compounds or complexes. There's a really fun cast of characters, and they all have a bit of a surprise hidden around the corner of their personalities. There are a lot of things going on in this book, and it sets up the series for some really interesting adventures. We have a three-way tribal war between humans and the two other species occupying the planet, a girl with metal wings, and several power-hungry leaders. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what this book was about. Several storylines seemed to be worked together and at times it lost its way a little. The discovery of the starship should have been a major turning point in the story, but it was usurped by the actions of the Herons (one of the species living on the planet) and the subsequent rescue of Malani. The starship seemed to get lost in the background, and I really wanted to see more about it and how Breaker repaired and fixed it up. Malani was a bit of an odd character, but as we learn more of her past, we see why she seems so damaged emotionally. Her story was my favorite. She was a great balance of strength and weakness and had some fun tricks hidden up her sleeve. The relationship between her and Breaker was confusing. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to see a romance between them and want them to be together or not. Overall, this was a fun story. It lost it's way a couple times and meandered around before coming back, but maybe those wanderings will be important down the line. I'm anxious to see what happens to Breaker, Malani, and their spaceship next. **I voluntarily received a review copy of this book**
