Sky In The Deep by Adrienne Young

“Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield — her brother, fighting with the enemy — the brother she watched die five years ago.

Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.

She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating” ~ Back cover description copied from Goodreads

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was fast paced and kept my interest throughout the whole book. I thought it was beautifully written. There is a lot of action in this book but to me it seemed much more character driven. All the action was mostly at the beginning and the end. All through Eelyn’s captivity up to the grand finale was pretty calm. You got to KNOW the characters. Not just through an age-long blood feud filled with hate, but who they actually where. All the clan’s similarities. The ability to set aside differences for the common good. This was different from what I have come to expect in YA fantasy and I loved it. So happy I stumbled across this book in my Owl Crate last month (May). I read it in one day. I’ll totally be looking into more books by this author.

As far as I know, this book is a stand alone. If you are like me and follow a lot of series, that’s FANTASTIC!

Since I did receive this book in my Owl Crate subscription box I do have an exclusive cover. Mine is silver instead of gold. (you can see the difference in my picture and the cover that is on the Amazon link to purchase a copy) My book is also signed by the author which is something I always treasure (also pictured below). If you want to pick up a copy of this book please follow the Amazon link I have provided below.

If you are interested in receiving exclusive editions and signed copies of YA novels monthly follow this link to subscribe to Owl Crate: https://www.owlcrate.com/refer/Simon-YGTTPRKP

THIS SUBSCRIPTION HAS NEVER BEEN A DISAPPOINTMENT
