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.

    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.

    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!

    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!!
