By Matt Heard on August 13, 2014
A confused book that doesn't know what it wants to be. The protagonist is a magical little boy with a pet monkey, and the whole thing seems very Young Adult, except for the parts that aren't. Big parts of the book felt like filler. Also there were some Great Ship bits sort of bolted on at the end for some reason that didn't make much sense or serve any purpose other than to justify the "A Great Ship Trilogy" subtitle.

This trilogy constitutes a parallel story line to the one happening in Reed's previous novels Marrow and The Well of Stars, as well as in numerous short stories and novellas. Many of us have been patiently waiting for that story line to come to some sort of resolution, as Well of Stars left us with a wee bit of a cliff hanger.

Well-written and quite exciting in places, the three novels that comprise Memory of Sky tell the story of an odd foundling named Diamond who is clearly a child of the immortal humans in the previous novels (his "brother," King, is a Harrum Scarrum, the martial, armored species also seen in the previous works). Diamond takes part in--and may be the catalyst for--a series of adventures (culminating in a war and ecological catastrophe) in a sealed habitat, evidently onboard the Great Ship. {The actual location is revealed on the final page, which location is obvious to readers of the previous two novels, Marrow and Well).

As always, Mr. Reed delivers the goods: His rare imagination and engaging style make this worth your while to pick up (BUT, I think you should read both Marrow and Well first, as those would give the neophyte a clearer picture on what is going on here). I give it four stars only for my slight frustration over still no resolution to the previous novels, and for the very poor editing (there is at least one typo on every page throughout the book).
