New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann and her daughter Melanie Brockmann have written a pulse-pounding novel of paranormal suspense set in a near future both fantastic and frightening.

During the initial setup, this was a three star read. It was good but not great. I liked the best friend, Calvin. I liked how his being wheelchair bound wasn't hushed up too much or forced into a little PC corner. He was also black, and that wasn't made an issue either. He was th ...more

First of all, it needs to be said that I am a HUGE fan of Suzanne Brockmann. Huge. To be honest, I didn't even realize that she was one of the authors of this book until after I had already started reading it. The premise was so catching that I didn't even take a moment to look the book up before I practically begged NetGalley to let me have a shot at it. Anyhow ... there's that. I had a bit of a rating issue with this one as well. It see-sawed ...more
Thank you to SOURCEBOOKS FIRE and Netgalley for providing a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Night Sky was a fun read about a teenage girl who, after the life changing event of moving, is about to experience another shock when she learns what her destiny is. Unfortunately for Skylar, she’s coming into it the hard way.
This story was character driven from the get-go, and I thin ...more
Quick & Dirty: A great idea that just didn’t come together for me. I tried really hard to like this book, but I felt so indifferent to it that I only got about half way through before quitting.
Opening Sentence: I had not been under the impression that trophy wives owned guns.
Skylar Reid is just your average teenage girl. She currently moved to Florida from Connecticut and it has been a difficult change for her. The only good thing about moving i ...more
NIGHT SKY is the YA (young adult lit) debut by the incomparable Suzanne Brockmann, whose adult titles (the Troubleshooters series, and other series and standalones) are, quite simply, spectacular. NIGHT SKY is co-authored by Melanie Brockmann, Suzanne’s daughter. The pair also penned a free prequel e-novella, DANGEROUS DESTINY, in which we meet the principle characters in the world of NIGHT SKY (the prequel also includes an interesting author Q&a ...more

Night Sky by Suzanne & Melanie Brockmann is the first book in the Night Sky series. This is set in the same world as the Fight Destiny series and is a young adult spinoff of it. You do not need to read the Fight Destiny series to follow this one.
Night Sky took me awhile to get into. The beginning just didn’t capture my attention. It wasn’t until around the 20% mark that the story finally came together and got interesting. Happily, once I got past the beginning I enjoyed it and becam ...more
I was hooked into this story from the beginning. I have never read any of Suzanne Brockmann novels before and now I am not sure why I haven't. This is a great novel, especially a debut for Melanie! I love all the characters in some way shape or form, even Garrett, McDouche. Sky and Calvin have become great friends since Sky moved to Coconut Key. Calvin and Sky get a long so great, the ...more

Skylar Reid is shaken when the girl she babysit's is kidnapped. She is starting to notice weird things. There is a horrid smell, things are being moved around her room and she isn't sure how, and she is having vivid dreams. When a girl on a motorbike comes into town things get even weirder. Skylar is told she is a Greater-Than. A human with abilities. The blood on Greater-Than's are being used to make a drug called Destiny. A ...more
I liked this book but it was a tough start for me. I felt like I started three chapters in or that maybe it was a second book in a series because it jumped right into the book without any really introduction to the characters and the plot. I now know that Suzanne Brockmann released a book Born to Darkness last year that had the same setting and is the first book in a series. If I had read that book it might have made t ...more
I enjoyed the story that NIGHT SKY told, but here were also a LOT of slow points, lot of drawn out build-up and for the length of the book, I wish I would have remembered more of what happened.
There seemed to be a LOT of world building missing from NIGHT SKY, I would say that's because that information is in the prequel DANGEROUS DESTINY, but it wasn't there either. It would have saved me from being completely confused in the beginning of the book. I probably won't continue wi ...more
I did find the beginning a bit weird and a tad bit slow, but the momentum built up and I found myself interested in learning about the G-T's. When all was said and done and the reasons revealed for why people where the way they were, I enjoyed the backstory of each of the characters.
A solid book, which has another book in the series that I'd definitely read.
This story takes place in a future United States. The economy has taken a turn for the worst and everyone is divided into the have and the have-not's. Skyler is a have along with her friend Calvin. They both have what they need and attend a private academy. Calv ...more

Then Dana, a girl with extreme abilities, roars into town on a motorcycle, claiming Sasha has been taken by the Organization because a hormone in her blood gives her special abilities. To top it all off, Dana says Skylar has the ...more
