'It is a prophecy, Watcher. And it foretells your destruction.'

So comes the stark warning from Astrae. But what does the prophecy that tells of the young moon actually mean?

Two years have passed and Jacob’s search for the second Successor brings him back to Earth. But his Watcher powers seem to be useless as the other Successor remains shrouded in mystery… And he soon dis

Second instalments are funny things, so often they disappoint or end up as the weak link in a trilogy or series. Nevertheless, with Sky Song being so good (I gave that a 5 star review) I was always going to read The Young Moon.

I'm pleased to report that this book really is anything but a weak link. The plot is an enthralling one; a search for the second successor as the mysterious person is also hunted by the trilogy's ruthless villan, Makash. The search takes Jacob and Luca far from home and th
Even better than book 1!!!!

This book was even better than its predecessor. The story flowed with such grace and it led me on a journey across the world and had so many twists that I didn’t have a chance to even guess at what was going to happen next! The writing was once again beautifully descriptive and the way Sharon Sant creates such a realistic yet fantas

I loved the first in the trilogy, Sky Song and Sant did not disappoint, with The Young Moon. It starts with Jacob returning to Earth, but with a stark prophecy from the Astrae of his demise. I love how, no matter the high drama of other worldly goings on, Sant gives the young cast of characters real emotions and distractions to deal with, making it believable and current. Sensitive issues are handled well and then the excitement notched up as the story crosses the world in a race to find the oth ...more

I was so keen to read this as soon as possible I started reading it whilst still reading another. I never read two books at once. The Young Moon starts two years after the 1st book finished when Jacob returns to Earth. The book is in parts quite sad but also exciting and the last chapter? All I can say is wow! I am so glad that the last in the trilogy is waiting on my kindle for me to read. This could well be the 1st day when I start and finish two books.

Sharon Sant’s urban fantasy debut, Sky Song introduced us to the prospect of life elsewhere in the universe, albeit not in a very ‘alien’ way. Jacob always had an inkling that he was somehow different, maybe through his unique trademark of colour changing eyes that reflect his moods, but it isn’t until he learns of his true identity that things really start to get interesting for him. Jacob is the future ‘Watcher’ for a race of people on Astrae, a sort of god who must watch out for them, keeping ...more

Review of Young Moon, by Sharon Sant.
Firstly I have to say OMG cliff hanger!!
This book which is the second in the sky song series, is really compelling and easy to read. I love the way the characters are developed further and their teenage angst in the unfolding love interests with Ellen and there telepathic bond. The loyalty of his long suffering best friend Luca.
We get glimmers of Jacobs home world ‘Astrae,’ understand his drive and his deep rooted connection and love with his earth family. Wh

How far would you go to save someone you love? Would you make the same choices if doing so spun your world into chaos? Which world is home, anyway?

In this sequel to Sky Song, young Jacob’s relationships become ever more complicated, and when he learns of a prophecy, his life becomes even harder. Despite his otherworldliness, Jacob's emotions and reactions are very human, and I found him easy to identify with despite his tender years.

Torn between his responsibilities as Astrae’s new Watcher, and

Having thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this YA series, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next installment. And, if anything, The Young Moon was even better than Sky Song. The characters are already well developed, meaning that the author did not need to spend time setting the scene and establishing dynamics. It was all go from the very first page.

I also liked the way that the characters and their relationships were developed further in this book. Whenever I read a book I always find m

Yeah, the review is posted at my blog there... GUESS WHAT? It has GIF's (the norm for me so no points for guessing, you get a point if you read this review though... do check out my blog if you want to see a couple of awesome GIF's which don't do this book justice!)

Where do I even begin? I love these books, the Sky Song Trilogy is not littered with errors of any kind. I don't think, 'THIS IS UNNECESSARY' or 'How dar
