I received a free digital copy of this book from the author.

I have a spoiler free video review of this book, which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdWR5...

This is a YA novel that has a unique crossover with Ancient Greek mythology to give it a fantasy feel in places. Most of the story is told from the main characters point of view, whose name is Sylvia, though we do get a few other perspectives for occasional chapters. Sylvia is a teenage girl whose mother died several years

The concept of this book was the only thing I enjoyed. I enjoyed the exploration of Muses, Greek Mythology and what it means to make art. I agree with the message of the book that it is important and vital to humanity and to our individual souls. However you make and discover your art is a beautiful thing.

That being said, I did not like the remainder of the book. I thought the story was weak and VERY Twilight. Like almost spot on. Supernatural guy falls for a supernatural girl, leaves girl for h

*This ARC was received in exchange for an honest review*
This is the story of 16 year old Sylvia Baker, whose life has been hard with her mother’s death, her father having been in rehab and now focusing on his music career and Sylvia’s depression which put her in the institute for a while.
But feels better when she is solely into listening to music, and when she joins the chorus group in school she feels the music inside her until she starts seeing the “flickering people” who know one can see but

I found this book to be a very enjoyable and unique read! Sara Crawford took aspects of ancient Greece and present day to create a musician's dream story! Would highly recommend to any music lovers (especially alternative), and any greek geeks!

*Review for this novel will be published on my blog on the books release date: August 15, 2017*

thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book to review :)
I liked the story and some of the characters. I just wish there was more showing as opposed to telling, and I wish Sylvia would have brought us into her head more, explaining everything that would happen inside her when she made music with Vincent. I think I would have liked their relationship more if I got more feelings about it from her.
The story was definitely intriguing, and there we parts of the story where the writing f

I have a lot of thought so strap yourselves in, its a long one. Like really long. Like actually.

**I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review**

Objectively this books is probably closer to a 3.5 but I rounded it up because I did enjoy this book greatly. This books was unlike anything I usually choose to read but especially for the first half of the book I found myself weirdly obsessed with this story. It was very likable and the plot flowed easily. This was very much a s

Kindle Unlimited, saw the review and if it the story had given off twilight vibes to me it would not have gotten a 4 but much much worse, and as far as no teen angst uh hello yeah there was which is why toward the end it got dropped from a 5 {by the very end ended up a 2}. The parts here and there dragging wouldn't have done that and since there is no 1/2 would have otherwise left it at the 5, but just too much of the angst and the dragging parts and huh moments such as when the one guy asked th ...more

This story shows the power of music, and how it truly can save a life. The purpose of music is to touch others and convey emotion. Just like reading, music is a way to escape our problems. We Own the Sky proves how life changing music can be. Speaking of music, the artists and songs that Sylvia likes are still around and popular with teens today, which also makes the book connectable on another level. We Own the Sky is emotional and will touch the hearts of many teens. High school life and its s ...more

What would happen if you could see muses? If a muse came into your life and wanted to help you become the artist you could only dream of. This is the story of Sylvia and her muse Vincent.

I must say I was not expecting any of this story when I started and was surprised at how dark it seemed. The plot had light moments but a lot of it concentrated on the dark side of music and how feeling too much could affect a person if they couldn't get the music out.
I did enjoy the slight romance but it defin

Nothing to do with this book, but I'm really irritated by the fact that Goodreads automatically marked it as Currently Reading just by virtue of the fact that I opened it on Kindle to check that the preorder had downloaded on the release date.

I bought this book out of curiosity and to support a family member. My idea was to read it and email the author with a critical review. Within 15 pages I forgot about a review and started reading for my own pleasure. Who knew a 64 year old man reading 80 to 100 books a year from authors like Dean Koontz, Clive Cussler, James Patterson and Stephen King would so thoroughly enjoy a book about a 16 year old female musician. This was way out of my normal genre. I don't want to give any secrets away a ...more
