This book is one of my top books of 2020. Marie Lu presents a mix of science fiction, action, and connection and it is so worth it. My favorite parts of this book are the intricate plot and the character evolution. Talin, the main character, uses sign language to communicate with the outside world. She has a solid group of friends, but is in a city who sees her as a refugee and a lesser.

Gosh. This book is so sad and then so exciting and then so unexpected and then so exciting again and now I'm left waiting for the second book to be written and released. As most Marie Lu books are, I anticipate this is a delightful audiobook, which will tide me over until the second book is released. I would recommend this book to YA readers, and I will be personally be recommending it to my brothers. ( )

Enjoyable but a bit too similar to her Legend series for me to go wild over it. Soldier girl meets soldier boy... there’s antagonism that turns to attraction but meanwhile much bigger issues have to take precedence. Dominating bully Federation wants to subjugate the smaller cities and she wants to stop them. ( )

Great from page one through the end. Plot twists, intriguing and relatable main characters, sinister opposition, plenty of action and an ending that had me wishing I could reach for the sequel immediately. ( )

Thank you to Libro.fm for providing me with a copy of this novel for review purposes.
Confession time..... this is my first Marie Lu novel!!!!!







Thoughts



I have another confession - I didn't properly look up this book, and didn't realize it was the first of the series... cue 'waiting for book 2' frustrations!



Here I was, getting to the end of the story, and getting upset. It felt like the story was winding down, while simultaneously revving up? What? Yep, that's what we call setting up for Book 2! That set up, was AMAZING!



As always, I don’t utter a sound. But a heart can grieve in silence, so I sink to my knees beside Corian’s body and allow the tears to come.



I'm giving big props to this novel, we have a main character who is a Woman of Colour, a refugee, and has a speech disability so uses sign language. As does her mother, the Huntress.







Talin is an elite warrior, a Striker. The Federation has taken her father, her home, her voice, her partner, and now, it's coming for her new home. She has already lost her Shield, Corian. She experiences depression following his death, and during this mental struggle she relates to a Prison of War caught by her city Mara. Breaking all of the rules, she saves his life, and completely changes the trajectory of the war, and also dipping into her blurred past.



This book is very introspective as told by the main character who cannot speak. This did sometimes get repetitive with conversations and being explained or reflected on, but I will say it was better than not having the world-building done correctly.



Skyhunter doesn't come out until the 29th of September, but I understand if you want to wait and binge on the series! There are plenty of Lu's other bestselling books waiting to be read.















I hope you enjoyed my thoughts on Skyhunter. Have you read this? Tell me what you thought!

Skyhunter was everything I wanted and more.

There was something about the cover art for Skyhunter that caught my eye last summer – something about the neon, science fiction feel of it that drew me to the book. Despite being authored by Marie Lu, who is fairly popular within the community, I haven’t heard any buzz about Skyhunter. I stumbled it by chance, and to this day, I still haven’t seen a single review. I’m ready to holler about this book, because I really liked it.

First, Talin is mute. I have never read a book with a main character who is unable to speak, and it just flowed so easily. The world building eased the path a bit, making signing a bit more natural, but there were a lot of language barrier situations (beyond signing) that I thought Marie Lu approached in creative ways. I would really like to hear from an Own Voices reader on the success of this rep – from my perspective, it appeared flawless and I was so excited to see it, but I am not an Own Voices reader and I would love to link up and Own Voices review on the subject of Talin’s mutism in Skyhunter.

Storytelling-wise, Skyhunter kept me highly engaged. The pacing was fabulous, and even though the characters were not in full action sequences all the time, there was enough going on to be interesting. The battle sequences themselves were flawlessly done, pulling the reader right into the story. Skyhunter‘s strong action sequences and crumbling dystopian world both screaming for a screen adaptation of the series – it would make strong visual material.

The characters I liked as well. I enjoyed unfolding each of the main four characters’s stories and getting to know them a little better. I loved Talin’s mom, who was completely badass (should have seen that coming from the dedication). From my perspective, the trauma was dealt with well and sensitively, while not dismissing that each of these characters carried heavy individual burdens. Additionally, this never felt like a YA book to me. It differed from the type of sci-fi you’d read if you picked up an adult sci-fi book, but the characters in this didn’t feel like teens. The writing was less dense than adult books, but the characters did not feel young.

Then, of course, there is the science fiction. War covers most the aspects of the dystopia, from salvaging to experiments. I can’t stop thinking about Star Wars when I think about this book, because even though the stage and scale is much smaller, the Federation has a very “Empire” feel. On the other hand, the Ghosts reminded a bit of A Game of Thrones‘s White Walkers. Some may call these things unoriginal, but I liked the familiarity of them and the ode to these iconic stories, intentional or not.

If you feel like hunkering down this year with a solid, familiar, engaging science fiction story, I can’t recommend Skyhunter enough. From the character relationships, to the smooth action sequences, to the political intrigue, there’s a lot to like in this book. There’s also an intense ending and no publication date (yet) for the next book in the series, so that’s also something to look forward to! ( )
