Quick Reasons: can we talk about this cover?!; can we talk about THIS SERIES?!; awesome, complex, strong-willed characters; satisfying end; trigger warning for sensitive readers; this whole journey was filled with heartbreak, horror, and darkly intense atmospheres; I'm sad to see it end, but so happy to have read it
---Darkness. I woke up to it, I fell asleep to it. It was everything I saw, everything I touched, everything I dreamed.
And now I was creating it.---
Wheeeeeew, penguins. This was an intense, bitter-sweet ending to a journey that I've adored and been in awe of these last few years. And I don't mean bitter-sweet in terms of the way this series ended...but instead that it had to end at all. I've fallen so deeply in love with this world, and these characters... I'm sad to see them go. I know one of the first things I intend to do, as soon as I'm able, is buy these books in physical copies--I NEED them on my shelves. I mean, just the covers alone are GOOOOORGEOUS; whoever designed these books did an A++ job on it, seriously. But the stories?! The stories inside are just as gorgeous, and I need them in more than one form. NEED, penguins.
Let's talk gritty for a minute, though. This is a courtesy trigger warning for sensitive readers--certain difficult topics are broached and handled throughout. These include, but are not necessarily limited to: rape; physical assault; physical abuse. These are, by far, the biggest that I found. Please be careful if you decide to pick this series up--keep yourselves safe! While most scenes are brief and not overly detailed, there were some difficult moments, so keep this in mind.
---"I wasn't asking for good ideas," I pointed out. "You said this place is a source of the Vesper's power. That means he'll be vulnerable if I destroy it. He won't have power, and he won't have an army."
Riley's eyebrow rose. "You want to destroy an entire building?" He took in my sharp stare, then shook his head. "Of course you do. You're always blowing things up."
I frowned. "It's not always on purpose."---
These characters are just... They're going to haunt me for a while to come. They are well-rounded and realistic, and while they've made some judgement calls I'm not sure I agree with... I love them. I love them all so hardcore, I can't even. The plot is action-packed, filled with drama, and just SO epic I can't even begin to explain. Amy Braun knows how to ratchet up the tension, and she does so twenty-fold in this book especially. I found myself unhinged in several key instances, both glued to the pages and wanting to fling the book away in "NO NO NO don't hurt me again!" pleas. These, of course, went mostly unheard.
In the end, this was a WILD ride--from page one, book one to the last closing words. I have, once again, been reminded why I need to pick up more steampunk novels--they always wind up being some of my favorites, and this series is no exception! I definitely recommend this journey to lovers of alien vampires, cloud-surfing pirates, and plots that are more like delicious action stew. Amy Braun, this series has turned the cogs in my penguin heart; I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for your writing! Take down the Hellions with me, penguins; let's save the world!
I can’t tell you how sad I am to see this series end. Once upon a time, Amy Braun sent an email to me, the owner of a tiny blog, and asked me to read her upcoming book. It was the first in a series of dystopian, sci fi, new adult novels. I love romance novels, but I can’t turn down a good sci fi novel, so I said yes. I am so glad I did.
Obsidian Sky is the final book in the Dark Sky series and this time the Hellions are in for the fight of their lives against our little crew of heroes! It is not an easy journey and they put everything into saving their world. WIth their wit and will, the gang takes us on a dangerous and exciting ride!
Amy Braun writes with no remorse. The world she has created is gritty and dirty and dangerous and I can’t imagine it any other way. The characters are deep and honest and raw, which has made them some of my favorite book characters of all time.
Thank you, Amy Braun, for taking me on this journey with you. I am so happy I got to read your words and imagine your rich and dangerous worlds in my head!
This series is a must-read series for any sci fi and/or dystopian fan and Obsidian Sky will blow you away!
Nevertheless, the novel certainly took me on a fun ride! I'm not a major fan of dystopian novels because they seem to be deeply rooted in human despair and carnage, but the steampunk and pirate feel of the series made the fight for humanity an enriching and exciting one.
From the get-go, Braun is able to ensure the reader is caught up to speed on who is who in the series and what you might've missed if you jumped in late like I did. I appreciated even the physical descriptions of the Hellions so I could keep up with the world building and what the baddies are up to. She was able to fill me in without slowing down the plot or rushing.
As always, I'm impressed with Braun's knack for describing action and fighting. There's a lot of hand-to-hand combat and dueling, and her description flow is easy to follow and creative. The only annoyance was the over-use of certain phrases of wind rushing out of the lungs and other descriptors for pain. Since the characters often take severe blows to the head and other sensitive areas, it seemed a bit excessive that they would experience such excruciating pain and either run away or not pass out.
Without giving too much away, I would say this ending was exciting and worth the buildup and tension created throughout the novel—and I'm sure the rest of the series. You can tell Braun enjoyed writing this series and her joy and talent shine through the characters and the narrative.
