Book Review: Broken Sky by L.A. Weatherly

newnewnewWelcome to a ‘perfect’ world.

Where war is illegal, where harmony rules.

And where your date of birth marks your destiny.

But nothing is perfect.

And in a world this broken, who can Amity trust?

Rating: 3 of 5 STARS

In Broken Sky, we live in a post-war world where the Central States and the Western Seaboard fight for resources, assets, estates, everything. This is combat you have not possibly imagined. A pilot, ranked through Tiers (1 being the highest), fight an opposing pilot using mechanical birds that blasts ammo and more stuff combat jets normally do. That’s quite badass in my book. And our hero(ine) here is a girl. Bad. Ass.

She is Amity. And she is among the pilots from the Western Seaboard fighting for rights and they are all called Peacefighters. Peacefighting is a huge job and a perfect dream come true for Amity until suspicious deaths, and dubious fight losses came about.

Amity will discover horrific lies – lies that created the hugest of impacts, she will learn that no one can be trusted – even those who you think are incapable of betrayal, and lastly and the most tragic of all, she will learn that hunger for fulfillment is a powerful driving factor and nobility… is an illusion.

The thing about this book is it’s not bad but it doesn’t have that gripping factor either. It’s not that I did not enjoyed it but it didn’t tug me in either. Nonetheless, I liked it enough. I liked it enough to keep turning the pages because I have to know what happens next.

What I ask on the next installment is probably more angst and an umph that will make me spellbound.

  1. Hi AJ, thanks for the review. It looks like it’s another dystopian novel, which sounds interesting. I’ll probably add this to my to-read book list. :) Btw, thanks for dropping by my blog. :)
