Book Of The Month

SKYHUNTER(SKYHUNTER#1) BY MARIE LU

I wouldn’t say this was an extra-ordinary read but I really enjoyed the characters, the concept, and the world. It has a gripping storyline which kept me hooked till the end.  I would highly recommend it if you’re into YA dystopia.

BLURB: In a world broken by war, a team of young warriors is willing to sacrifice everything to save what they love.

The Karensa Federation has conquered a dozen countries, leaving Mara as one of the last free nations in the world. Refugees flee to its borders to escape a fate worse than death—transformation into mutant war beasts known as Ghosts, creatures the Federation then sends to attack Mara.

The legendary Strikers, Mara’s elite fighting force, are trained to stop them. But as the number of Ghosts grows and Karensa closes in, defeat seems inevitable.

Still, one Striker refuses to give up hope.

Robbed of her voice and home, Talin Kanami knows firsthand the brutality of the Federation. Their cruelty forced her and her mother to seek asylum in a country that considers their people repugnant. She finds comfort only with a handful of fellow Strikers who have pledged their lives to one another and who are determined to push Karensa back at all costs.

When a mysterious prisoner is brought from the front, Talin senses there’s more to him than meets the eye. Is he a spy from the Federation? Or could he be the weapon that will save them all?


Thank you for reading and Let’s Chat! ❤

    You read 11 books? Im envious. I can hardly ever find the time. I read 4 books. That model on the cover of Dark Skies looks like Jamie Lannister, doesnt he?

      I mostly read before going to bed. 4 books isn’t bad. I hope you read even more in NOV!
      Yes, he does look like Jamie Lannister but I’m not sure he’s the one on the cover.

    I read Well Met and Famine as well 😀 and I have The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue on my tbr for this month, but it’s probably too popular for me to get it in time.

      I hope you enjoyed Well Met and Famine! The invisible life of Addie LaRue was a slow read but hope you enjoy it when you finally get around to it.

      9 books isn’t bad. You had a good reading month! Well, I’m glad you enjoyed A deadly Education more than I did. Addie LaRue was a mixed bag for me but overall I enjoyed it.
