This clever mix of fairytales and steampunk is a wonderful and original, fast-paced series. Delightful for young(ish) readers and adults, albeit on different levels.
I spent the best part of two weeks in the company of Tee, her friends and family, and their rivals, and enjoyed every minute of it.
The plot and the sub-plots weave back and forth seamlessly, making an entertaining and riveting read that’s hard to put down. (How the author kept everything straight while writing the series is beyond me, but he did it well.)
There are more twists and turns than a roller-coaster ride, some danger and tragedy, plenty of wit and humour, and lots of action and adventure. A general theme of growing up.. .family, friendship, confidence, loyalty and more, runs smoothly within the story.
The author brings the large and diverse cast of characters to life, and as they continue to develop and change throughout the series, we learn more of their hidden depths… and flaws. At the same time, he paints a detailed picture of the world they inhabit, starting with the small village in book one to a much larger expanse by book five, as our heroes (and villains) travel further away from their homes.
I liked the names of the characters, many of them plucked from fairytales and myths and given a twist… my favourite, being Ron-Paul Silskin!
The Day the Sky Fell keeps you on the edge of your seat, rapidly turning pages until the very end.
Chikahn Liddel was nothing more than a simple shepherd. However, one fateful day, he saw a Skyfaller destroy his entire village. When a cloud miraculously destroyed the large airship, he became an important piece in a much larger puzzle. One he had no clue he would be a part of when he made his way into the world.
The Yellow Hoods and what remained of the once secret society known as the Tub rushed to free Nikolas Klaus. However, not all of them appear to have the same agenda. With suspicion mounting on all sides, how is it all going to end?
Oh my gosh. This book was an epic finale to a wonderfully inventive series. Just when you think all is going to happen a certain way, the reader is thrown through another plot twist. To some, it might feel as if there were too many and it can become a bit much to keep track of after a time. However, I loved every thrilling moment of it. I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the very end.
I found the ending to be quite satisfying. Every character was placed where he or she needed to be and the consequences of their actions were all taken into account. I also didn’t mind the part where Mr. Dreece more than hinted that more books would be coming out in this world. I will definitely be on the lookout for those.
The Yellow Hoods series has so many different plot lines going and Adam is able to write in a way that prevents it from ever becoming jumbled or confusing. It is always interesting to get near the end of the book and watch as he ties everything together. The fairy tale aspect is still so fun to see unfold. I had my suspicions that a certain character was going to tie into a certain fairy tale and the scene where it was revealed was amazing.
Overall this series along with this book were amazing. I highly recommend them and can’t wait to read anything else of Adam’s.
