TBR Reduce Challenge #8- 2011 (Alexa)

"You have half our gifts, I the other. Together we make a whole. Together we are much more powerful."

English girl, Sky Bright, just moved to Colorado since her adopted parents got a new job teaching at an art center in town.
Sky has always had a complicated life. She was abandoned at a motorway service station when she was six, traumatized and not being able to remember her own name. And while life seems to be better now, it all changes when she meets Zed Benedict, someone that can link her, to her past and hold her future.

To be honest, I wasn't sure if I was going to finish this one. It took so long to get into the writing style and plot line, but once things started happening with Sky and Zed and the paranormal elements started taking shape, it got really interesting.

For the most part I really liked the characters. Sky Bright? Okay, I hate her name, but she's a sweet, shy and cute girl, but I liked her a lot more once she started believing in herself more.
Zed's a pretty complex thing now isn't he? Like Sky, it was hard to adjust to his sudden rage to romance, but eventually I started to like this Zed much better.
Together they were a very sweet touching couple, mind you the dialog was a bit cheesy, but it was nice none the less.

My favorite part was the elements laced in this one. I liked the idea of Savant, how they became, what they can do and the twist with the soulfinders was pretty great as well. It wasn't overly unique, but definitely different.

Overall, I enjoyed Finding Sky. It had some really sweet moments, some grip and was a fun entertaining and intriguing read.

Kim I looked at this book last time I was in Brussels a few weeks ago (English bookstores are quite scarce around here), but I didn't buy it, so I'm curious about your thoughts.


~Tina~ So far it's okay, should be done soon:)


~Tina~ Alexa, can you hook me up with another one hun?

~Tina~ Thankies. I think you'd like this one, but it's not a book I'd ever read again.
