I love Shelly Crane's Significance series so she's pretty much an author that makes it onto my auto-buy list. Collide is about Sherry, a nineteen year old girl, who is trying to avoid her abusive ex-boyfriend who is stalking her and move through her boring life, not going how she planned. Then mysterious people or aliens begin appearing. Her ex-boyfriend shows up claiming that he died and that he is her brother's guardian angel of sorts. He calls himself Merrick and says he is a Keeper. Merrick convinces Sherry and her brother Danny that the end of the world is coming and because Danny is a Special, someone destined to do something great, he must be kept from the Lighters. This is where I had an issue with the characters. So Merrick looks like Sherry's stalker ex-boyfriend and yet Danny buys the whole the-world-is-ending spiel when his sister is drugged in the back of the car? Now, I would expect my brother (if I had one) to take one look at my ex and tell him to clear off. I mean, really. She's drugged and this guy is claiming he has been possessed (kind of) by a something called a Keeper.
However, despite this I really enjoyed the book. The writing was great and there were quite a few errors but I liked Sherry and Merrick's relationship and the plot was interesting. There was some action, a sweet romance, and it flowed relatively fast. I read this one in about a day, so it's not a heavy, long book. Looking back at the review it seems like there are a lot more negatives than positives, which isn't the case - I just felt I had to mention the above issue. If grammar and writing errors really bother you then I wouldn't recommend this but I liked it :)
This book is fully of sci-fi elements that certainly pulls you in and keeps you intrigued.
Sherry hasn't had the best of times with men and in relationships in the past, main one being Matt.
Matt was horrible to Sherry, constant nagging, such possessiveness and low of the low, he hit her!
What kind of man can do that to someone the proclaim to love?
One day though Sherry she's Matt waiting for her on her front apartment steps, claiming that he wants to take her and Danny far away before the "Beings" come for them, he also proclaims that he isn't Matt and in fact one of those said "beings" called Merrick.
The was Shelly has wrote Sherry's character is beautiful, she is simply amazing. Sherry's honest, caring and willing to help everyone and anyone.
Although Sherry isn't a tough girl her spirit balances this, such a good strong leader.
The relationship that starts to bloom between Merrick & Sherry is soooo heart-warming. I loved it. I fell in love with the sweet, handsome, kind, devoted man called Merrick, I want one :)
Your are thrust into a world that's at war and are relying on "Beings" to help them survive as a family and as a race.
Looking forward to reading the next instalments:
