Sky is a USA Today bestselling indie author who writes quirky romantasy and retold fairytales with dry humour where secrets are peeled back like onions. So far, Thumbelina has been updated for suspicious adults, a more sinister version of Cinderella was released on 21.12.20; an adult Red Riding Hood was released on 21.03.21; and a Wizard of Oz retelling emerged on 21.06.21. A secret eco-warrior, she has co-published several charity anthologies that collect funds in support of our oceans, rainforests and communities touched by wildfires. All her books are linked by some character or another and sometimes, in her standalones, she likes to make you choose, depending on your disposition (optimist vs pessimist) - 'coz the path that awaits depends on the decisions we take. (Well, except in the Magic Mirrors saga aka Cinders-Embers-Ash trilogy - because only Douglas Adams could pull off a trilogy in 5 parts.) She lives in Tallinn, Estonia, in a house with a small garden with her husband and mostly one, but on occasion plus four kids. No dog.

Besides fairytales, Sky keeps experimenting with different genres: myths&legends; steampunk; post-apocalyptic scifi; quirky fantasy romance and alternative history to name a few that are currently in the works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh take; classic fairy tales
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on April 20, 2021
This is the second book in the Embers series, but it can be read as a stand-alone if desired. Although, once you get the taste of Sommers’s creativity, you’ll probably want to read them all. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

What I loved about this book
The dialog is quick and snappy. It moved me along in the story quickly and kept the characters real and engaging.

The way the characters in these stories are twisted is a really unique and fresh take on the classics. I adored that they are all together in one world and interacting.

There are some really cool Fairy Tale concepts (that reminded me of the TV show “Once Upon a Time”), but Sommers does more than building on the archetypes already baked into these characters. She gives them entirely new motivations, and it really pulled on the heartstrings. My favorite was Grace, who sacrificed so much for her son, Henry.

What I wanted a little more of…
I must admit, I’m an epic fantasy nut. If you’ve read my books, you’re going to realize that I enjoy things to be built up in a visual way until they explode. I want to go deeper into the world and feel like I’m living beside these characters. This is a quick read, and that’s great for many, many people. But…what I really relish in novels is enjoying the world and setting. I suppose I’ll have to read the others to get that taste.

I’d give this a 4.5 out of 5, but I’ll round up when I post this. These are super fun reads for those who like twisting the well-known tropes in Fairy Tales.
