Following the cover reveal for this fab book just last month, I am so happy to finally be able to share my thoughts on it with you as I join the blog tour for Wild Sky. Many thanks to Lexi, and to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part and for providing me with a copy of the book.
After delivering the pearl, Finn and Aria thought life would return to normal.
But with the survival of the clans still in peril, they must continue their quest.
Can they find the next relic before the forces of evil?
Not everyone is who they appear to be
And time is running out …
I don’t know about Lexi’s younger fans, but I know I have been eagerly awaiting this book since I turned the last page of Eternal Seas, and it didn’t disappoint.
Despite the young age of the characters, I never feel as though this series is purely for children. The action that unfolds keeps my attention from start to finish and never feels overly simple. The skill of the story-telling is such that you forget just how young Finn and Aria are, as the thrill of the adventure takes over.
I live just half an hour from Spitbank Fort, and so I enjoyed seeing it mentioned and playing such a vital role in the story. I have never made it across to visit, but it was brought to life in such a way that I am dying to see inside now.
Although I am undeniably attached to Finn and Aria, it is impossible not to love the irrepresible Pippin. She is so full of life and mischief, but I get the feeling there is a lot more to her than meets the eye. She strikes me as a girl with many secrets, and I am looking forward to discovering if I am right as the series continues.
