Exile (The Sky Road Book 1)
Posted by Literary Titan
Y’keta has been banished and is on his own only to learn that the new place he calls home could be lost forever. He knows that he could help them, and others know he’s hiding something. What should Y’keta do? Should he tell the truth and save the village, or destroy everything these villagers have ever believed in? The right choice is not easy and takes a brave soul to make it.
I am a fan of North American Legends, so this book kept my attention the whole way through, and I felt myself anticipating each new page. The book feels realistic, and for much of the book, I felt like I knew the characters and that we were connected. If you like North American legends, I feel like this book would be a good one for people to read as it is a great journey to take. It also touched me to see the characters reacted to one another and their sense of duty in a genuine way.
I enjoyed the characters and the fact that Siann wants to forge her path. There were qualities in both her and Y’keta that I admired so much, though I was not Siann’s biggest fan, although I did like her character as a whole. I feel like there aren’t enough good female characters in novels today, and I liked that Siann didn’t fit into the stereotypical role. She was inspiring. However, more than the characters, I loved the author’s skills at details and creating such an exciting world. One of my favorite things about diving into a new book is the author’s ability to make such a fascinating world and such an intricate plot. The attention to detail was amazing.
When you read a book, you want to be hooked; this book certainly does that. Although I enjoyed the book, it took me a while to get into the story and feel invested on a deeper level. But after I did get invested I found this book to be riveting and emotional. I also enjoyed the intertwined stories that made me feel like I was connecting with all of the characters. I felt a personal kinship with Y’keta and his struggles and it’s for this reason that I will be looking into the author’s other books.
