We hear it all the time, just say no to drugs, but Destiny has too strong of a pull on its users, from the great high plummeting down into possible insanity, even its risks make it more desirable. For Skylar Reid, a “Greater-Than,” it means her life’s blood is a hot commodity to be taken and mixed to make the infamous Destiny. Since coming to term with her powers, her life has been an emotional rollercoaster and now she finds that even her friends are not immune to the danger she lives with. Vam ...more

Wild Sky, the second installment of the Night Sky series, pulls us back into Sky, Calvin, Dana, and Milo’s world. While the gang is still focused on finding Dana’s sister, Lacy, there are a lot of obstacles in their way with the repercussions of being a Destiny addict is at the center of it all. With this book, I think the series is finally gaining some momentum. Night Sky was very

I am just getting back into reading YA/Paranormal and I am so glad I started reading this series. I am hooked on the series from book 1 and hope there will be more to come soon! I love the whole concept of the Greater-thans and why they need to look out for each other. Their blood being used for a drug called Destiny. It will make the user younger and have mighty Greater-than powers only to

Looks like the Brockmann team have come up with a new idea of vampires. Good, I was getting a little bored of the old ones. Seems as if they are everywhere anymore. These are a definitely a different breed in the fact that they breed certain "Greater Than" (mostly women) with specific gifts (everyone's is different) and keep them in a closet and drain their blood slowly and mix it with a few other things and inject it into their system. Supposedly, it's a great high. But after a while, it will k ...more

I thought this one was better than the first, but it was still filled full of teen angst, that got old fast. There were things that I really liked, what happened to Cal. I liked that he got a chance to break free of his chair, even as I hated how that chance seemed to change him. I hope that the end results are things that he can live with. I liked the new additions to the motley team, Garrett, the douche, and Morgan, who I hope sticks around. I like that Dana found what she was looking for, but ...more

I enjoyed this second installment of the Sky series.
Dana and Milo were filled out as characters. And Calvin is as always the Master of the would you rather game. The team worked to enhance each other both in good and bad times. It was action packed to suit everyone's tastes But with enough tender and witty moments to satisfy my romantic side.

I hope there will be many more ventures into the Destiny world both as YA and Adult. I find myself going back to Born to Darkness and the Night sky over a
Skylar and her friends are battling for their lives. And the emergencies are piling up. They are still looking for Dana's sister and during their search they learn of another Greater Than, who needs rescuing.

Why I started this book: I downloaded it from the library and knew that I needed to read it before it expired.

Why I finished it: The story moves along, but I really prefer Brockmann's adult series, even the one set in this world.

This is the second book in the Night Sky series by Suzanne and Melanie Brockmann. I was glad that we got more of Sklyar, Milo, Calvin and Dana in this book. I thought the plot in this one flowed really well and kept your attention throughout.

Dana is training Skylar to use her new found powers of being a Greater Than in this book. They are all still on the hunt for the makers of Destiny to be able to get Dana's little sister back. When another school associate of Skylar and Calvin's pushes his w

Wild Sky by Suzanne Brockmann and Melanie Brockmann is the 2nd book in their Night Sky series. I did not read the 1st book, but this read very well as a standalone. Any major details, including all the main characters are explained very well, when needed.

Skylar Reid is our heroine, and she is still learning how to handle the powers she has as a “Greater-Than”. A quick background: In the first book, Skylar learns she has a hormone in her blood which makes her stronger, faster, smarter. A hormone

Would love to read the rest of the series. It was an intriguing story that kept me reading until it was done. I loved the concept of superhero's and the addictive drug Destiny, along with the addicts. The friends were witty and made me laugh a couple times while reading. I found myself engrossed in the reading. I would recommend the book for sure. I can't wait the read the rest in the series.

This book was kind of a let down after reading Night Sky . Skylar and Milo's relationship in this book is very irking. Skylar doesn't trust Milo because there are things in his head he wants to keep private. I find that perfectly understandable because after all they are a new couple and really he is allowed to not share his horrible childhood. Dana spends the whole book trying to find her sister (view spoiler) ...more

Love this new series. Melanie sure has followed in her Mom's footsteps (IN A GOOD WAY) and those were big expectations to live up to and she has done it in a way that no one will question her amazing talent!! Constant action, emotional roller coasters and love, what more can you ask for? Love it, cannot wait for the next one.

This Series about young adults with powers and learning not only how to deal with them on their own but also saving little girls and others that are hunted down and used to

***May Contain Spoilers for Book 1***

Destiny has really hit an all time high in terms of demand and Skylar and people like her have become a hot commodity. A drug that helps reverse the aging process and makes you feel invincible and super human might sound like something that everyone would want but in reality it will eventually kill you.

The more I think about "destiny" and Skylar the more parallels I see between it and the vampire blood in "True Blood."

Cal has been paralyzed many years before and thought he could never walk again, then Sky, his friend, watches him stand up after taking an illegal drug. Wild Sky by Suzanne Brockmann, explores a addiction in her fictional story. The group of teens in the book are your average teens but with some unnatural powers. They try to find out who is making a harmful drug, and Sky could be the main ingredient. Some people that they know could be making the drug without them knowing. This book is suspensef ...more

I've grown to really like the characters in the Sky series. I'm not a major YA fan but some people pull me in – Elena Dillon, Sarra Cannon and now Suzanne & Melanie Brockmann. The kids in the Sky series are fully formed characters and yes the angst is there but it doesn't overwhelm the story. The Greater-Thans, kids with powers above a normal human, are being kidnapped and used to create a drug that makes anyone young and beautiful—for a time, before it kills them violently and everyone else ...more

I wound up with both books in this series. I was excited when I got them both, but very disappointed with the first one. This second book opens up with a gross, yucky scene that I was not braced for at all. It was worse than accidentally clicking through channels and landing on the worst, bloodiest, creepy part of a horror movie with out warning. I can do creepy, but not if you don't tell me it is going to be that way. Next thing you know the search is one for a missing girl. Things just jumped ...more

This book is third in the series (counting the novella that is a prequel to Night Sky) I started reading this one first and I got about a quarter thru the book when I decided not to finish it - until I had read the first 2. I am so glad I did it gave me more insight into the characters and I was that much more invested in them. the world this series takes place in is very well built and very plausible with nothing that seemed too jarringly out of place for that world. I really enjoyed this story ...more

I was disappointed in this sequel to Night Sky. It was OK, just not as good as I was hoping it would be. For the length of the book, not much happens. Sky and her friends are still on a quest to find Dana's sister. Cal is accidentally injected with Destiny and can walk. But, he is a ticking time bomb. The gang meets a new male Greater Than who is pretty powerful. That's about it. Honestly, I feel like this one could have been shorter than it was and maybe combined with the next book? The ending ...more

Following a lead to find Danas sister, Skylar and the gang encounters a dangerous D addict, and trying to save her prisoner turns into a lifethreatening situation when Calvin accidentally gets injected with a dose. A dose of the drug that has no other outcome than jokering and dying. Now its a race against time to find a cure, to find Danas sister and to save Jillian in the closet.
And why is Milo so distant? Skylar is not having an easy time of her life.

This story took a bit to grab me - I was initially repelled a bit by the apparently obligatory tenor that the "young adult" genre has: recap of previous characters in a manner that sort of implies that the reader has the memory and attention span of a gnat, and the frequent repetition of "my boyfriend" - which kind of tickles me when it reminds me of Frau Blucher's "Yess, he vass my... Boyfriend!" but becomes annoying after awhile. However, it moved past the teenybopper and into a very engaging ...more

I enjoyed the first book in the series but was strangely bored by this one. I don't why but I just couldn't get into it. I kept picking it up, reading a chapter or to then putting in down for a few days (normally I read a book in a day - 2 days tops). The characters annoyed me - Dana was irritatingly bossy and bitchy, Sky was irritatingly angsty over Milo, Milo was irritatingly secretive with Sky. I don't know I just didn't care what happened. Very disappointing given the promising start to the ...more

I really loved the adult book about the Greater-Thans, written by Suzanne Brockmann, it was fantastic.
I liked the first book of the YA version, but dammit I can't take any more of Skylar's whinig, disrespect of her mother, or constant mooning over her boyfriend. I just can't anymore. And someone please tell me why a buch of children are supposed to be more,capable of busting a drug ring than adults? Add to that the poor decision to have Melanie Brockmann narrate her own audiobook and I.

This entry was more character driven more than anything. We see Sky and Milo hit a somewhat rough patch as well as Dana and Cal come together although this hits a rough stage when he inadvertently gets addicted to Destiny. Most impressive we get some character development from the Garrett the douche from the first book becomes an ally in our hero's cause. I can only imagine what we're gonna get as the series progresses.

Wild Sky is the second book in a YA series that Brockmann is writing with her daughter. A group of teens in a dystopian version of Florida discover an underworld of secret powers and addictive drugs made from powerful blood. I’m enjoying this series for the setting and the characters.

This and some other not-s0-scary books were on my Halloween list on my blog: Happy Halloween!
