For a first time book, this was really good! I can't believe how well the story was woven. It had me anticipating what would next throughout. Everything about it had me turning pages and I just could not put it down! Really, RE Palmer has created an amazing story that's sure to entertain readers. Besides minor editing problems, this was a fine read. ^_^
Tomas is an exquisite character and I loved him! He seemed to be so real. And Shelley! That ne

As seen on my blog:

OH Sc-Fi, how I've missed your tantalizing presence in my reading life. I went into Sky  expecting the storyline to lean more heavily on the paranormal, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was Sci-Fi that provided more fuel for the plot. Sky's content was also more plot-driven than character, which was unusually pleasing as well-I tend to be more engrossed in novels that flesh out their characters to the highest extent.

I've read more YA fiction in the last year th

The main character in this novel was Tomas Moone, a very shy, insecure and sweet guy. Tomas lived in London in a very poor area across from a borderline, where gangs hung out. Greg, the leader of one of the gangs, was constantly badgering Tomas, and threatening him with violence. On the day that Tomas was burying his father, he searched with his face towards the clouds, looking for a glimpse of Sky, but didn't see her. Sky was the beautiful blond that he had been having an ethereal relationship ...more

Review:A few weeks ago, we received a request to review a book called Sky, after reading the synopsis I wanted to read it and check it out. Sky was a lot of fun and has the making to be a good start for a series.
The story started off slow, and allowed me to get to know the characters before it picked up speed. The P.O.V. rotated through different characters so I felt like I had a good understand of

The story started out a bit slow. The pacing picked up after a few chapters or so. Tomas Moone has been dreaming about this mysterious girl, he called her Sky. Every time he tried to reach out to her, she would always disappear. There's a reason behind the girl's disappearance and it's connected with Shelley's story, a newspaper correspondent, working on a story of a girl in coma who suddenly woke up and killed people after having contact with her. The storyline is believable, I liked the parano ...more

Review of Sky by R. E. Palmer
4 stars

A witty coming-of-age novel couched in science fiction paranormal fantasy, “Sky” revolves around an adolescent young man in London, Tomas; and the girl who is literally the “girl of his dreams.” He early on named her “Sky,” although her actual name is Carla-and she is now a University student in Australia. In real life terms, they’ve never met, but they are together nearly every night for years, in dreams. Tomas also has a new dream companion, one who takes hi

Tomas Moone is a loner and kids at school find pleasure in tormenting him. The recent death of his father has only made things worse. But, what Tomas is about to uncover within his own mind will change his life forever.

As far back as Tomas can remember he has been having vivid dreams of a beautiful girl, whom he named Sky. Lately, the dreams are becoming more intense and Tomas is finding it harder to differentiate between the real world and the one that exists in his dreams. When Sky is violentl
I'm putting this book aside after reading 18%, but not because I think it's bad. On the contrary, I'm really impressed with it so far. The writing and world-building are excellent. My problem is simply the tension as the story builds. I don't like suspense, and this book uses a lot of it. I think the story is headed in a hero-quest direction, but that's speculation. Hero-quest fantasy is not my thing.

The story is about a high school boy in modern day London who is half orphaned. His father died

Sky was written from many characters point of view, which I enjoyed. I was able to get a lot of background from each character making it easy to understand and relate. Tomas seemed to be the main character, the point of view mostly told from his perceptive.

Tomas was someone I understood. Young insecure, with a good sense of right and wrong. He met Sky in his dreams and knew he would do anything to save her. But this is much more than a love story. I would categorize it more as a fantasy novel. T

There were amazing, imaginative elements in this book, but it was missing something. I enjoyed Tomas', his granddad & Carly, but the constant skipping between characters left me confused about who's POV I was reading at times. I enjoyed the romantic build up of Tomas & Skye (Carla)'s relationship in their dreams & his intense love for her, but once Tomas gets to Australia & begins fighting demons, the book begins to run together & the build up of their relationship was played ...more

I have tried several times over the past few months but I just can't get in to this book. Maybe I will try again when I am in the mood for this sort of book.

Love the thought of life in dreams and comas. How parallel can they be? Can you meet new people and discover new worlds.

As an avid reader from an early age, I've always enjoyed books (and also the films of my favourite books). Whilst I read a wide range, I tend to lean toward science fiction, fantasy and historical (with a military angle).

I first wrote short stories in my early twenties, and although I've long since lost them, I can still recall most of the details as if I'd done them yesterday - in fact, a few ide
