Canvas Skies is another page turner with plenty of intrigue and mystery. It's hard to know who to trust when it comes to the men in April's life. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading about dystopian worlds and mystery/romance novels.
Canvas Skies picks up where the first book left off, continuing the story of Keira, April, Scott, and Richard, plus a few other characters in the mix. April, now Aimee LaFleur, struggles to deal with all that has happened to her while she makes some difficult decisions in regards to her life. Keira or Kendra, must choose between the life that she has lived and the future with the man of her dreams. Scott and Richard too have their decisions to make, with one wrong slip-up potentially costing someone their life. Interwoven between the lives and loves of this enigmatic group is government corruption and the ever present Divide.
The way that Wallace conveys her story is a method that many have tried and failed, but she does it, and does it very well. We as readers have the unique perspective of seeing the story unfold through the eyes of various characters. Their stories weave a web where each backtracks and overlaps, but does so in such a streamlined fashion, that the reader has no trouble switching back forth between the various people. I have thoroughly enjoyed this fantastic mix of sci-fi, suspense, politics, and a little romance thrown in.
As mentioned by my partner in her review of book one, the blurb on Amazon does not do this novel justice. Well written and action packed, it kept me guessing until the end. I cannot wait for the next installment in this trilogy, and will be a little sad to see it end. Wonderful things await this talented author, and you would be doing yourself a disservice to not pick up a copy of not only Canvas Skies but also Price of a Bounty. If I were to hazard a rating for this book, I would give it not just 5 stars but 5 and half, and yes it is just that good.
Canvas Skies is action packed that wont disappoint. Love, murder, truth, lies and trust issues... It's all here! Don't forget sticking it to The Man and looking out for The Little Guy
Written in the point of view of several characters, you see the whole scene play out from different angles and it allows you to get more into the story. S.L did an awesome job at seamlessly overlapping the POV's to intertwine with one another as to not to confuse the reader.
I look forward to the next install to this series. It has opened up a new genre for me to enjoy. Kudos to you S.L on such a wonderful series!!!!
