Sky in the Deep
Mar 12, 2018
There are rare times when I read a book, or watch a TV show, and I just connect with the story so strongly that I really, truly believe that I’m a part of it. That I grow to love the characters like my own family, who I laugh with, cry with, and feel tethered to in some spiritual, inexplicable way. I savor the words and take an extra two days to read it, just because I can’t bear to reach the ending. This book is one of those times. I love every single word written in these pages, I wouldn’t change a thing. I never expected Sky in the Deep to capture my soul so completely, but it absolutely did. Every page just bleeds with raw emotion and substance, I became perfectly in-tune with the characters. It has action that makes you feel like you’re on the battlefield, an innate history and culture that I just know the author spent years researching, and a heroine that feels with her heart as much as she strategizes with her mind. I don’t think there’s a review good enough in the world to really make a person understand how much depth there is to this story, how the layers build and intertwine. The writing is also beautiful, I used an entire dispenser of post-it tabs to mark all of the lines that I loved. If there's one book you pick up this year, let it be Sky in the Deep!
