The first book was unremarkable but enjoyable. This book is definitely a star below the first. Main characters Hokk and Elia have both become extremely unlikable, leaving me no one to care about except the fox. The science of the shattered world made less sense and was harder to believe in this book. The mechanics of everything do not seem to have been well thought out. Also, I felt the first book was aimed at 11-12 year olds, but the violence in this one raises the target age range above that. ...more
“Above” the second book in the imaginative and exciting “Broken Sky Chronicles” a science fiction- fantasy is set in a dystopian world of floating islands bathed constantly in sunshine above the fury of rain storms that wash over the bleak plains of the wilderness below. The adventure continues when Elia and Hokk, leaving Koiyim behind escape the clutches of the Torkin flying to the Isle of Drifting Dunes where Tasheira (Tash) the daughter of Baron Shoad and her cousins Fimal and Neric are unear ...more

Interesting blend of fantasy and sci-fi. I like that the female protagonist is trying to prove herself and toughness to the tribesmen through the narrative.
I gave it a chance after the lackluster read of Below, and I had to give up. I found the plotline dragging (again!) and the real turn off was the utter lack of morality/remorse of the characters. (view spoiler) The author seems like a very nice ...more

The world is layered. On is above the cloud bank that encompasses the lower level. Elia has fled the upper world bearing a secret that could end the empire of the upper world [Above] and struggles to fit in. Meanwhile she is pursed by Imperial guards. There are two parallel stories, one for each world. Above was an interesting science fiction read. It was a free review copy from Turner Publishing.

I gave this 3 stars instead of 4 as it's in medias res. These middle stories never seem to be quite as good as the beginning and the end even if the narrative does move nicely along. And this book is still very good. The action is original and the characters continue to develop in interesting ways. It just makes me long for the next book more and I know there will be a long wait.

This honest review is in exchange for a free copy received from the publisher.

A satisfying Part 2! Answers some questions and presents a few more. Blends future worlds with ours really well, I though. Looking forward to the final book in the trilogy!

I live in Vancouver, British Columbia, but grew up in the rural outskirts of a city called Chilliwack – a Stó:lō First Nations word meaning “quieter water up the river” – where our home was built beside a gurgling creek and surrounded by forests. With no neighbors in sight and only one channel on TV, I had plenty of time to invest in my imagination.
