Sky in the Deep Reviews
Is this really a stand alone? Because I’m so thrilled after the ending! Also, can the whole ax thing was freaking awesome, and there was some awesomely brutal scenes. There was family love, friendship, and romance mixed in. And I really want viking hair as of now!!

Thank you Netgalley and publisher for the eARC to read and review!
Sky in the Deep is not released until April 24, 2018, so this will definitely be a spoiler-free review. The setting is a re-imagined historical fiction/fantasy about Vikings. Eelyn is seventeen and a warrior in the Aska clan. During a battle against an enemy Riki clan, Eelyn discovers her brother, Iri, thought dead, is actually still alive and fighting agains ...more
Wow, this story gets going right from the start. Nothing is ever dull and you pick up a ton about Eelyn's main character right away. She's pretty tough - you can totally feel her conviction and drive through her POV! But I reallllly appreciate that her character and personality are SO much more than simply "fierce."
I'll admit I put this one off for a bit and didn't get to it until around Christmas because I kind of maybe judged it by the cover. I LOVE stories about Vikings, but was a bit hesitan ...more
This is an action-packed story featuring a strong, kickass heroine.
The Riki and Aska clans are mortal enemies. Eelyn, the main character, grew up in an Aska clan. One day in battle she is about to be killed by a Riki when suddenly she is saved by her brother, the same brother who she thought had died five years ago! To make matters worse he's fighting alongside the Riki, the Riki! who are the mortal enemies of her people.
Things happen and Eelyn ends up kidnapped by the Riki. In order to survive ...more
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. This does not sway my opinion of the novel in any way.
This is going to be one of those few times where an ARC I was super thrilled to get leaves me utterly disappointed. Unfortunately.
What can I say? I don’t want to give too much away since this isn’t out yet.
The main character, Eelyn, was who almost urged to to give this two stars. Well, her and her “love interest.” I don’t want to spoil anything, so I won’t reveal his name. They wer ...more
5/7/2018: I'm not the type of person who easily gets crushes on fictional characters. I just don't. I know some people who fall in love with a person in each book, and that isn't how I roll. It takes a lot of mental and emotional connection for me to dub a character my book boyfriend--just like the word love, I don't use book boyfriend often.
Some of my book boyfriends I hold close to my heart: Rowan Whitethorn (Throne of Glass series), Edmund (A Death-Struck Year), Char (Ella Enchanted, book no ...more
