Book Description from Amazon
A strange-eyed boy with no memory of his true identity or real parents, Jacob could have no idea of the mortal danger he has been in every day of his fifteen years. Now that danger has found him and suddenly he doesn’t know who he can trust and what is real anymore. All he knows is that his new identity is almost as terrifying as the peril unleashing it has brought. Caught in the universal power struggle of an ancient race of beings and a destiny demanded of him that he does not want, he must fight to protect his own life and everyone he holds dear. But when the time comes, will he be strong enough to make the sacrifices that saving them will demand?
What I thought of it
Sky Song, the first of this eponymous trilogy, introduces us to Jacob Lightfoot, the boy with the unusual eyes, the boy who’s always been a little bit different.
I felt for Jacob as he struggled to accept the shift in perspective on his life, his humanity, and his future. I really liked the intuitive connection between Jacob and Ellen. Luca becomes a more complex character as the story develops, too.
I found Sharon’s writing style creative, intelligent and engaging. She includes some wonderful imagery, and much of Jacob’s internal dialogue really made me laugh.
Sky Song is a keeper for me! Thank heavens this is a trilogy, as just one book is certainly not enough!
