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 😊 2mo

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.

TheAliceEvers Good review, well said! I found it the same 2mo

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.

If you haven‘t read this book yet, what are you waiting for?! This book was AMAZING. It has some mixed reviews, but holy crap as soon as I picked it up I couldn‘t put it down; I think I‘m drawn to these bloodthirsty strong heroines that just don‘t give up⚔️✊🏼 This story is action packed, and honestly, all the characters stole my heart in different ways. The character development feels REAL, despite how some YA novels tend to go down. #OwlCrate

Pausing City of Bones for a while. I enjoyed the first three, but I think I need some time away before the rest - especially the last two giant books 😂 Trying a slightly different type of fantasy this time. I‘ve had this sitting on my nightstand for months. I picked it up because I was intrigued by the title. Hoping it‘s good! 😊

Oh no. The book pretends to be about a young, fierce, strong woman, but she spends all the time getting saved by men. The love interest* as well as the whole plot is predictable from the beginning. The author has no idea what she is doing with Norse mythology. Why are both tribes monotheistic? And the names are just changed by one syllable from the names of Norse sagas. And then there is the given evil, that is not explored whatsoever.

Texreader Well that sounds downright awful. Thanks for the honest review 7mo
Foxyfictionista Thank you for that. It's almost the time of year where I do a cull of my Goodreads tbr list so I've taken this one off. A few other reviewers have said the same thing that you've said and that doesn't appeal to me at all. 7mo

So far, I am only let down by the names. It seems the author took random names from northern mythology and changed them by a syllable or two... But I am only 42 pages in, so I am willing to give it a chance...

Eelyn is an Aska, a viking warrior who fights against the Riki clan. During a battle she sees her brother fighting WITH the Rikis... a brother she watched die five years ago. In trying to find answers she uncovers a greater evil then the Rikis... one that both clans might have to band together to defeat.

This. Book. Was. AMAZING! It was touching, and violent, and poetic, and so damn wonderful that I can't find words. Read it! Ahhh! 😍😍😍😍😍
