Wild Sky: The Relic Hunters #2
After delivering the pearl, Finn and Aria thought life would return to normal.
But with the survival of the clans still in peril, they must continue their quest.
Can they find the next relic before the forces of evil?
Not everyone is who they appear to be, and time is running out ...
Before I continue this review, I must recommend you guys read the first novel, if you haven't already... why? Because this story continues right after the journey that we are pulled in with Finn and Aria, and this next quest is as amazing and exciting as the last one.

Wild Sky by Lexi Rees is an amazing book. It is perfect for people who like adventure and mystery books. The book grips you in very quickly. I couldn’t put the book down. It is about two children called Finn and Aria who are on a quest to save the clans who have had to go into hiding after they lost their relic. That is not all there is also a villain called Sir Waldred who is trying to get the relics to so that he can become the most powerful person. The book is really good an ...more
I thought that the pacing of the story was perfect, just like the first installment, I loved learning more about the world - it is so interesting and those glimpses we get into the past even ...more
I do very much appreciate it when the next book in the series doesn’t go over old ground, it instead, cracks straight on with the story.

Wild Sky begins exactly where we left our intrepid relic hunters at the end of Eternal Seas. No time is wasted before we are thrown straight back into the action. Sir Waldred, the villain of the story, is determined to thwart Aria's attempts in loc ...more
Would it be as good as book 1 (Eternal Seas) or better?
I loved that this book could be read not only by children but parents alike. I liked that it showed good life lessons, right and wrong, good and bad and making informed decisions.
Beautifully written with a wonderful undulating flow ensuring each page kept you spell bound.
A must read, highly recommend this book

My daughter is young, 4 currently, but absolutely adores story time so we often end up reading several times a day. When we read the first book I kept having to plead out for a sore throat from reading out loud to her, and this was no different.
She was glued to the story, and being young she did stop me a couple of times to ask about a word she wasn’t familiar with, but otherwise was happily glued, she giggled and gasped a few times, sat wide eye whi ...more
In Wild Sky, we follow Finn and Aria further into their magical quest to find the Sky Rider relic this time, of which Aria is a sky rider! We take a ride over the Himalayan mountains to a monastery where we meet Rahfi a trainee monk who also helps them in the relic quest.
Yet again, a brilliant magical adventure taking you to all corners ...more
This is the second book and picks up were the first ended so needs to be read in order the plot is exciting and draws you in. The characters are great. They are relatable as they aren't perfect and all make mistakes but they are always trying hard.
I highly recommend this series and can't wait for the next i ...more

As well as being enjoyed by my pre-teens this was also enjoyed by me. We read this together as a bedtime story over several nights and the calls for "one more chapter" were definitely embraced by me as well as two kids trying to avoid bedtime. It was well-written with a good amount of suspense and storyline to engage everyone.
The series is getting better and better the more we get to know the characters. We're hoping for book 3 before too ...more
A great second instalment in the journey of the relic hunters! Loved it! The plot is exciting and fast paced, the characters likeable and heroic. Awesome.
Hurry up, Lexi Rees! We need to know what comes next! (Just kidding, take the time needed to continue your wonderful story, it’s just very hard to wait!)
