Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
Plot: Eelyn is a hardened warrior who would rather die than be taken by the enemy. But maybe the enemy is just like she is. Now faced with decisions she never thought she would have to she must find a way to bring the clans together to save them all. There is even a subtle romance that builds from enemies to more.
Review: I was skeptical going into this. All the reviews said it was detailed and a bit gorey. But this book had me right from the start. It was def not a fluffy story. Instead it is dark, real, detailed, and thoughtful. The author painted a picture of the Riki and Aska clans battles and the wounds left from it. I kinda loved it and how strong the characters were. Friske and Eelyn’s slow burn relationship was built from literal enemies to maybe more. I just enjoyed the overall writing and honestly I can see myself buying a FC and reading it again happily.
Should you read? Do you like non-fluffy, battle strong characters, and a dash of romance. How about viking type clans.
