Can’t Wait Wednesday – Spotlight on SKY IN THE DEEP by Adrienne Young


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is SKY IN THE DEEP by Adrienne Young.  Okay, first of all, this is a story about Vikings, so I was already hooked as soon as I heard that.  But then, that little bit in the blurb about Eelyn seeing the impossible on the battlefield – her dead brother fighting for the enemy (Say what??????).  Yeah, that was the clincher for me. I know that’s some drama I want to get to the bottom of.  I’ve seen some great reviews for this one already too, so I’m really excited for it.


SKY IN THE DEEP by Adrienne Young

Publication Date:   April 24, 2018


From Goodreads:


Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.

Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.

She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.

    I’m excited about this one too! The Viking aspect is what really pulled me in. I don’t think I’ve seen many, if any, YA about the Vikings before. and I had the same reaction to the brother line in the synopsis. There will definitely be some intensity there! Hope you love it.

    I’m also super excited about this one! Hopefully I’ll start reading it in the next week or so. It looks amazing! Vikings, a strong female lead, Vikings, mysterious appearances, clan wars and did I mention Vikings?
