First of all, this book gets five stars. A big, bold, underlined, Arial 16-sized five.

It starts where the first book in the series, Lacuna, took off, and takes the reader through the continuation of a thrilling plot, amazing character development and gorgeous descriptions of other worlds –or rather, “sister planets” of a decaying Earth. I’d like to start saying that if you haven’t read Lacuna, you should grab a copy right now. I’m going to try to avoid spoilers though.

“I’m yours to do with as you want.”

When I finished reading the first book I had the feeling that “Sky Children” would be even better and I am glad that I was proven right. The beautiful world building that the author did in “Lacuna” continues in the second book, we might have explored earth under the government of the “Terah”, but that’s nothing compared to the places we see as the characters travel from planet to planet, learning about the different cultures and people that live in

DNF after the first couple of chapters. The trans rep didn't get better, and I was disappointed at the outcome of the character I'd assumed was asexual. I'm not going to bother with the rest.
I was excited to learn after reading Lacuna, that book two, Sky Children was to be released in April. At first, I was a little bit wary about how Sky Children might stand up to the complicated richness of book one. However, Sky Children has not only stood up to Lacuna, but I think in some ways it has also surpassed it.

Things I especially liked:

The vast universe-- Sky Children continues on where Lacuna left off. We are given the continued experience of a dying Earth through Blue's chapters, but w

This book was fantastic! If you haven’t read book one I’d suggest you not read this review past the first paragraph. I’ll try not to spoil but there are major events I can’t avoid mentioning and that might lessen the anticipation built up in book one. I’ve been looking forward to Sky Children’s release from the minute I finished Lacuna. Like Lacuna this one also ends on a cliffhanger that left my mind reeling with possibilities. In this world they rea
Review written for Love Bytes Reviews.

After reading the first book in this series, I was bursting with anticipation for the sequel and I have to say that it did NOT disappoint! Continuing from where Lacuna left off, I continued on Caden’s journey of self discovery as he went off into the unknown in search of answers about himself and where his people came from all while looking for a way to go home. Much like the previous book, this one is told from multiple points of view as each chapters featu
A sweeping space opera that continues where Lacuna left off. This book successfully walks the delicate balance between sci-fi world building, and substantial character development and growth. I think the author's greatest accomplishment is in the creation of a rich universe that leaves some central questions deliberately unanswered so that readers are forced to make their own assumptions. When the truth about certain aspects of the story are revealed, it makes for a much greater impact to the re ...more

“There had been no pain or death on Lacuna, no suffering. There was only the cycle.
