Sky in the Deep Reviews

  • Kerri

    To set the stage of how AMAZING this book is let me start by saying, I'm DEEP in the SJTR book three drafting cave, and I DEVOURED this masterpiece basically in one night. THE SKY IN THE DEEP is INCREDIBLE and I cannot recommend that you add it to your TBRs enough. DEFINITELY going to add a more official blurb soon.

    Omg this book was amazing! Love!!!

    I’m not even sure where to start with this book… It was such an incredible read.

    First can we talk about how amazing it is to read a fantasy book that isn’t 15 books long? This, my friends, is a stand-alone fantasy. That said, I would NOT be against seeing an outtake from the future for these characters. (Adrienne you can send that right to my email if you like!)

    This book is YA Vikings.

    It is brutal.

    It is violent.

    It is unflinching.

    And I loved every second of it.

    From the very first pages, you get

    This book is YA Vikings.

    It is brutal.

    It is violent.

    It is unflinching.

    And I loved every second of it.

    From the very first pages, you get a very clear understanding that there will be no holding back in terms of the warring families.

    ”Vegr Yfir Fjor.”

    Honor Before Life is the Aska way and Eelyn is part of the Aska clan. Her father is leader and she stands alongside him and the other clan members each fighting season when the Aska and Riki find themselves at war.

    Five years ago she watched her brother die during the battles, but she sees the impossible…. Iri fighting against his own people wearing the battle colors of the Riki. It can’t be true and her father is sure it’s just his spirit blessing her with his presence, but when she sees him again at the next battle, she can’t resist following to make sure.

    Eelyn finds herself trapped though and taken captive by the Riki who is fighting with her brother, Fiske and made a dyr… and with winter forcing her to endure the season in the Riki village and the betrayal of her brother, as a slave, she’s determined to get back to her father and forget the brother who has forgotten her and the family he should be fighting for.

    I absolutely love complicated characters and this book has them in spades. From Eelyn to Fiske, from Iri to Inge and Myra I just loved getting to know them all and see their growth from beginning to end. Seeing the hate and anger between the warring clans at the beginning and fighting a fight that almost seems to be happening just because it always has, to the point when they realize they finally have a common enemy and the realizations along the way that though they may pray to different gods, they actually have very few differences was just amazing. Eelyn is fierce and strong and clever and Fiske is … Fiske comes across as the strong silent type. He watches, he learns… and he kicks ass when he needs to.

    I loved Young’s writing style. With intense action scenes and lush, beautiful prose, she had me turning pages until I was forced to stop. The romance will sneak up on you in the best of ways and it is lovely, and sweet and just perfection.

    Ultimately this is a story about family and loyalty and forgiveness and you will be knocked off your feet at how incredibly Adrienne Young tells it.

    I can’t wait to see what she writes next!

    *Full review update!* 100% pure Viking awesomeness and a crapload of feels. SO GOOD.

    I'll be honest. When I first saw the cover, I was a little worried about connecting to the heroine. I LOVE badass girls, don't get me wrong, but it seems every book is throwing us a hard heroine who wants to cut down a bunch of people and not apologize for it. Great - those stories can be fun, but often I find myself having a hard time rooting for them unless their character arc is extremely compelling. I'm part

    *Full review update!* 100% pure Viking awesomeness and a crapload of feels. SO GOOD.

    I'll be honest. When I first saw the cover, I was a little worried about connecting to the heroine. I LOVE badass girls, don't get me wrong, but it seems every book is throwing us a hard heroine who wants to cut down a bunch of people and not apologize for it. Great - those stories can be fun, but often I find myself having a hard time rooting for them unless their character arc is extremely compelling. I'm particularly drawn to characters who find other means of strength and power that isn't in the form of slicing people up and being super mean, lol.

    I shouldn't have been worried.

    In fact, I connected so deeply with Eelyn - even within the first few pages. For me, that's rare. I loved everything about her.

    Eelyn is a warrior who has lost her mother and her brother due to wars with rival clans. In fact, her clan (Aska) has a standing battle with the opposing Riki clan every five years - and it was that battle that claimed her brother's life. At the beginning of the book, we're thrown right into that battle five years after she lost him. And despite kicking major ass, she finds herself face to face with a Riki warrior who injures her - except, something stops her from killing him, and she could have sworn it was her brother.

    Yep, she actually sees him, despite thinking he was dead for the past five years. And he was fighting against Aska, her clan - which he would NEVER do. It leaves her wondering whether or not she hallucinated him.

    I won't spoil anything else, so I'll just say what happens next results in Eelyn ending up in the hands of the rival clan. Go in blind if you can. I didn't even read the blurb before I dove in, and it made every page a mystery as to what would happen next.

    I really can't rave enough. The prose was gorgeous, and Adrienne Young has a way of taking hold of your heart with her use of language. I'm just in awe.

    As usual, I'll leave you with a list of reasons you should snag this book:

    -Epic battle scenes

    -Vikings. Are. So. Cool. I mean, cmon. Clan wars? Yes, please.

    -You'll find yourself attached to EVERY CHARACTER

    -Emotional friendships

    -Fantastic worldbuilding & perfect pacing

    -All the feels.

    -Yes, there's a perfect smidge of romance that doesn't detract from the story - it enhances it.

    -And that romance may or may not be enemies-to-lovers - the best trope ever.

    -Eelyn is the type of heroine we need more of in literature

    So, my point is - read this book, and help me to convince Adrienne to write us another thousand books!

    ***A special thank you to Wednesday Books for providing me with a gorgeous physical copy in exchange for an honest review!

    Is this really a stand alone? Because I’m so thrilled after the ending! Also, can the whole ax thing was freaking awesome, and there was some awesomely brutal scenes. There was family love, friendship, and romance mixed in. And I really want viking hair as of now!!
