Beth's Review: Amber Sky (Dark Sky 0.25) by Amy Braun
Released: October 4th 2016
Genre: YA, Steampunk
Length: 125 pages
Press-ganged into servitude by a ruthless band of marauders who survived the devastating Storm, Nash has grown tired of his career– the young, undefeated champion of the Stray Dog fighting pits. All he longs for is a place to live where his family is not his enemy. When his captain gives him an assignment to embed him deeper into the crew, Nash attempts to refuse, until the life of his friend is threatened. Determined to save her, Nash embarks on the mission to subjugate and control a supplier. But the supplier has other clients, one of which could be the son of the most feared pirate captain in all of Westraven. And if Nash plays his cards right, the key to his deeply desired freedom, if he can live with the consequences of his choice… Set two years before the events of CRIMSON SKY, this prequel novella tells the story of how Nash and Sawyer crossed paths– and fists. While best enjoyed before reading CRIMSON SKY, this bonus story can be read at any time or enjoyed as a standalone.
Five (4.5) Boundless Stars
I was offered this book in exchange for an honest review. I reviewed the Crimson Sky and Midnight Sky and enjoyed it, so I appreciate the offer.
Amber Sky is a prequel focusing mainly on the character, Nash, as he desires something more in life. We also learn how he and another character, Sawyer meet. As usual, Braun does not disappoint. I love her writing style and have enjoyed all her books so far. The only negative I can say about her books is that they are filled with so much excitement, it’s hard to review them without giving away spoilers; but then again, that’s not really a negative, is it?
Overall, Amber Sky is a strong 4.5 Boundless Stars book. I loved it!
