    1 1 2 stars Okay, I think I might need to step away from YA fantasy for a while I m going to read Ash Princess and a couple of other ARCs I ve committed to, but after that I m going to start being much selective and stop being seduced by pretty covers and exciting blurbs I might be lying about this, but here s hoping I can restrain myself.The thing is, Sky in the Deep feels like one in a long line of shallow and emotionless fantasies When I began reading, I knew very little about it A few chapters in and I was thinking wow, this is so dry and boring so I decided to go see if any other reviewers agreed with me Instead, I found 5 star after 5 star rating, plus a starred Kirkus review Convinced I must have been missing something amazing, I pushed on to the end.And I don t get it I m having that I feel like I read a completely different book feeling.There are some attempts to do something different here The world and fictional language feel and sound like old Scandinavian, complete with Viking esque clan warfare and brutal violence But it is all action and ...

    100% pure Viking awesomeness and a crapload of feels SO GOOD I ll be honest 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, and they often have no heart or redeeming qualities And a lot of the times, they are written by men 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 This book blew my every expectation out of the water 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 despi...

    More often than not, when I pick a YA fantasy up, I am not expecting to be surprised Entertained, maybe, and possibly charmed, but not surprised Never surprised I feel like if I do, I am setting myself up for disappointment on purpose Because rare are the YA fantasy books that are so original they don t immediately remind you of previous fantasy books you ve read This is why it s extremely easy for readers and professionals to market those stories as said book meets said book It s when you re unable to do that when you review a book that you realize that what you hold in your hands is completely fresh And isn t that an amazing feeling To know that you may have just read a new classic that will allow for stories about Vikings to be published in the future To my surprise, it is character driven than action driven It is interesting because there is strong, intense action in the beginning and for the last one hundred and so pages of the story, but what is in between is relatively calm and measured That is absolutely normal, seeing that when Eelyn becomes a captive, she is unable to pursue her past activities that mostly involve fighting She is forced into a submissive life that consists of her performing household duties and helping the enemy in different ...

    May Owlcrate Box Click under picture to see the unboxing THE GOODSFreaking loved it I loved Eelyn and Fiske There were others too This definitely wasn t what I thought the book was going to be but I loved it all the same A few bloody fights and some strong women But the thing is, you need to read this book for yourself Don t listen to the know it all people Read YOUR own damn books I hate if someone decides not to read something I didn t like because you could miss out on your own gem Find YOURSELF in books I have found so many great books that way AND, I m pretty much just go...

    ARC provided by St Martin s Press in exchange for an honest review. the last time I saw my brother was five years ago Lying dead in the snow Sky in the Deep is a debut, standalone, young adult fantasy novel that stars two different Viking clans But this is a story about betrayal, then survival, then a choice You all, I really enjoyed this one I thought it was unique, well written, and has some amazing characters Our main protagonist, Eelyn, has lived the last five years mourning her brother s death Every five years, the two rival Viking clans battle for no reason other than blind hatred And five years ago, Eelyn had to watch him fall off a cliff and was forced to leave him dying below But this book starts out five years later, with a brand new battle, yet Eelyn sees her brother, Iri, before her very eyes The two rival Viking clans Aska Worship the god Sigr, water and the sea, and Eelyn s clan where her father is the leader Riki Worship the god Thora, mountains and fire, and the side that Iri is currently fighting fo...

    this book is E X A C T L Y the kind of content i signed up for in 2019 never mind that this was released nearly a year ago P.truth be told, i actually actively stayed away from this i hated the cover because i thought it tried too hard to be edgy and rough, vikings dont appeal to me in the least, and the plot just sounded meh but let me be the first to tell you that i was sooo wrong except for the cover i still dont like it lol what really blew me away was how original this is i was surprised at how this doesnt tend to follow the same sort of format that most YA historical fiction stories seem to have i was constantly engaged from the first page up until to the very last not to mention this story begins right in the middle of a battle, so things start at 100 mph and they dont let up i was also really impressed with eelyn i have found that a lot of books with a warrior female as the MC tend to be unforgivable and too extreme for me to appreciate but eelyn was strong, with a strength that came from love and courage it made her relatable, but also admirable i thought her character was very well written the only thing keeping this from being 5 stars is the ending everything is resolved in about 5 10 pages, making it seem a bit rushed to me this book is on the shorter side of things, so i would have loved to have a extended conclusion but overall, this was the biggest surprise i have had from a book in a very...

    I did not expect to like this book so much at all The concept is simple and the plot is also very straight forward but the emotional aspect of this book was far deeper than I anticipated I love the whole Viking concept going on and the characters are all amazing What blew me away the most is the writing Adrienne Young s writing is the one of the most spectacular use of words I have seen in my life I went into the book without reading the blurb and the two reasons I was so enchanted by this book are the protagonist who is awesome and the author s writing skills I can t stop ranting about the dexterity of the writing in this book Every sentence is written so alluring and the descriptions are done so well I could see everything happening before my eyes HOW DOES SHE WRITE SO WELL The Aska and the Riki have been fighting since the beginning of time Every 5 years they meet on the battlefield to fight a war fueled with hatred accumulated through the centuries Their children are raised to hate their opponents and are taught to fight and are prepared for battle They each worship a different god and follow different religious paths, but eventually you see they are pretty much the same but with a different god.Eelyn is an Aska She lost her brother, Iri, on the battlefield a few years ago, but she sees her brother fighting with the Riki and in her shock she is captured by the Riki and is made a Dyr, which is the title for slaves She is bought by...

    Well, in the words of someone who knew exactly what they were talking about I ve just been had So utterly and completely.This was a letdown plain and simple I don t know how else to express my shattered expectations This was not the Viking book I was eagerly awaiting to read and in fact, the only thing Viking about this was pretty much the setting and that s where it stops Nothing Nothing less Put every cliched ya plot together, mash it up, say it s Viking, throw in some Nordic terminologies here and there, and bam you ve got a badass Viking fantasy SmhFirst off, for the first 200 pages mind you, the entire book is 334 pages nothing happens This book is incredibly safe and feels overly recycled The plot is predictable and each character plays their respective clich d role down to the bone You know exactly how they re going to act and react to any given situation because they re all characters we ve seen and continue to see The plot centres around a Viking warrior girl who finds out her dead brother is in fact alive and she s angry an...

    No words can explain how much I loved this book.But I will give it a try Ond Eldr.Breathe Fire Sky in the Deep is a Viking inspired tale, following the steps of Eelyn, a fierce and devoted warrior Her clan, the Aska, worship the god Sigr and, according to his will, they fight their enemies, the Riki, the ones who worship the goddess Thora, every five years This ancient blood feud has filled the hearts of the Riki and the Aska with ingrained hatred, but the fates of the two people are interwined in a way no one could predict During a battle, Eelyn sees her brother, Iri, who was supposed to be dead, fighting alongside the Riki, and later she is captured by them and kept as a slave by Iri s Riki family, in order to protect her long enough to escape Even though Eelyn was bred to kill Riki, the longer she spends time with them, the she realises that maybe they re not so different after all And that there is another, terrifying enemy, the enemy that comes out at night and sheds oceans of blood, that needs to be defeated, before both the Riki and the Aska perish ...

    4.5 Full Review This was so good Now I need enemies to lovers books I can t believe this is the first book by the author because it did not feel like a first book at all I found it well written and engaging What I liked The first chapter is a battle one I love books that start off being action y instead of having to wait until the middle of the book So I was immediately invested in the story I love books that have belief systems and this book had two I loved learning about the history of both and why the two became enemies, how they practice their religions, the usage of their language for particular sayings and just everything about their belief in general I loved the plot in general Eelyn finds her brother Iri who she thought was dead, fighting for the enemy and due to some events, she gets captured by the enemy and finds herself living among them as some type of slave I love learning about how Iri goes from being dead to living with the enemy The relationships This book had enemies to friends and enemies to lovers and I loved both, especially the second I enjoyed reading about Eelyn and Fiske and watching the relationship slowly blossom I may or may not have reread some of their scenes after finishing the book lol I do wish there were of them though I liked Eelyn and in these times of annoying MCs, that was such a relief lol She is such a complica...
