I mostly read this because it is the prequel to The Girl the Sea Gave Back, which I‘ve just won in a giveaway. I probably wouldn‘t have gotten through it if it weren‘t for the audiobook: the writing is slow, overly descriptive, tending towards navel gazing. I did like the story, the moral of it, and the characters. Unfortunately the characters, despite pretty good progression, were not well fleshed-out. It wasn‘t bad, but I‘m glad to be moving on.

#Octoberreads My monthly color readings are still going but I‘m totally having a hard time now! I have so many all or mostly black covers! So this months colors are black and orange (thankfully black is perfect for Halloween). #blackandorangereading 2020 resolution will be to buy more colorful books!

And with that, I have completed my #LitsyAtoZ challenges for both Authors and Titles! Woohoo!

This was my Y author.

A fast paced story of a warrior girl taken prisoner by an enemy clan. I appreciated the undercurrent of finding the sameness in “the other”.

Wow!! I really didn‘t expect to love this one with #AllOfMyHeart but I most certainly do!! This Norse-inspired YA novel has it all- battle frenzy, family love, faceless enemies and a dash of romance to boot!! I‘m not sure how I missed this last year but I am now super excited for more from Young!! #AyUpAugust

Went to the Barnes and Noble book haul and got these books for $11. These were the two books I purposefully went looking for and I was a good girl and didn't get any others, although I did look around.

Despite being an easy read, it took me a few days longer than usual to get through this book, mostly because I found the characters and dialogue to be bland. While I appreciated the writing, the setting, the message, and the struggle, the characters just felt extremely bland. I like a little spice added to character interactions. All they seemed to talk about was the situation they were in. A lot of showing not telling when it came to relations.

Still thinking about Sorcery of Thorns, but I‘m also very excited to start Sky in the Deep. The blurb tells me this book is “part Wonder Woman, part Vikings” and I can‘t think of anything more badass than that.

I really enjoyed this story. As a one shot fantasy book it was perfect. It had the feel of Vikings and for those gamers Out there I kept seeing the main character as Alloy from Horizon Zero Dawn. If you like fantasy but get overwhelmed by some of the deep worlds this is a good one. No supernatural or magic in this but the story and characters are so good you won‘t miss that.

Unfortunately no 5 ⭐️ adult reads this month, but it was a solid 3.5-4 stars for all of these, which is still pretty good.

This one gets mixed reviews, but I really loved it! I think it‘s the first time I‘ve read historical fiction based on the Vikings. I appreciate that Eelyn - a warrior in the Aska tribe - is strong and sensitive, as are some other characters, male and female. These two things don‘t have to be mutually exclusive! And...Vikings!! I definitely need to read more Viking era books. Also love that this is a stand-alone novel!

So this started with a bit of a pet-peeve where basically the entire storyline is summed up in the blurb. That being said, the first half contained a lot more soul-destroying sorrow and a lot less fighting than I expected. The story only really kicked in with the second half. Overall I liked this book well enough to keep going.I enjoyed the way the gods were used and Viking vibes are always great!

This was a great historical fiction novel! I will say that this war that was going on was a little childish but it worked. The only thing I really kind of didn‘t like was the final battle that just kind of ended which stopped the flow. Other than that this was a great title and I can‘t wait for another one. Sit seems this might be a series. But it works as a stand alone!

I enjoyed this book. I did find the writing style a little awkward at times, but not enough to dissuade me from the story. I found this more fulfilling than a lot of other ya I‘ve read recently. I liked that the mc was both tough and emotional. I don‘t think you have to be one or the other.

Unfortunately I just didn‘t enjoy this one like I thought I would. I‘d heard such great things but it just wasn‘t for me. For some reason I couldn‘t get on board with the writing style, I found the characters to be a bit 2 dimensional and I didn‘t really like them? The ending was better but I still wasn‘t as invested as I like to be. I feel a bit unfair saying that though because I think perhaps I‘m just too old to enjoy these books anymore?

StaceyKondla I don‘t think a person is ever too old to enjoy YA. This one just wasn‘t very good 🤷‍♀️ Have you read Children of Blood Bone? That one is an awesome YA fantasy 😊 6mo

I love the cover more than the story. The main character fell flat for me and the pace tanked a third or the way into the story. I was close to not finishing but pushed through. The weird take on Norse mythology didn‘t work for me either. It is a great premise, but I struggled with the execution.

Wow! I got this audiobook with a free credit on Kobo, and I'm totally going to have to spend the money for a physical book now!

The action was fast-paced and gritty (got a tad too gory for me at two points, but both moved past quickly), the characters were believable and relatable, and the internal wrestling with beliefs and prejudices was beautifully executed. Loved this book!

“Breathe Fire”

I was hooked from page one and devoured Sky in the Deep within a day! Eelyn holds her own as an Aska warrior. She is fierce and driven by her love for her clan and family. I look forward to reading Young‘s next book, The Girl the Sea Gave Back.

This story was dry & boring, a very lukewarm read for me. There was nothing compelling me to care about any of the characters, except Fiske. I liked his character & he was the best example of a warrior in this story. Maybe this is a captivating story for others but for me it was lacking in excitement, dramatic tension, complexity, & characters I could really get behind.
