Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young {Stephanie’s Review}


Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young was a May COYER book club pick. I had it in my TBR and it was just the motivation I needed to pick it up.

This book was S.L.O.W. but it was descriptive and fascinating. The only reason I was able to keep going is because I wanted to know more and more about Eelyn and what was happening with the Riki. There were enough differences from our world to this world that I wanted to know more.

I also think that it was a huge testament to one of my core beliefs: we aren’t all that different when you get down to the base of a person. I loved this book for communicating that so beautifully. During times like these it is very easy to lose sight of that.

There are so many characters to love in Sky in the Deep and a few we’re meant to actively dislike. Halvard had to be my favorite. How can you not love that innocent in a world where there isn’t much?

I really admired Eelyn. She’s the one who had to do the hardwork in this book. I liked Fiske too. He didn’t want anything to happen to his family and he meant business about it too. Iri, Myra, Aghe, Inge, and Runa were all great characters too.

I really enjoyed Sky in the Deep. I was bummed when I thought it was a stand alone but pretty excited when I found out it was a companion novel.

  1. Its a shame that this one was so slow for you, but I love those deep descriptions!


    1. It was slow but I did end up enjoying it. It would have probably been a 5 star if it had moved just a little bit more quickly. 🙂


  2. I agree with you on all counts – it was SLOW but had such a beautiful message. And yes to Halvard being the best. I never did finish book 2 though ?. Great review!


    1. It really was great. 🙂 Book 2 was really kind of a let down for me. 😦
