An easy to read ya series

Skyhunter by Marie Lu was a quick and easy ya read that starts off a wonderful beginning to a new series. 4.5/5 stars. This book begins in a beautiful world created by Marie Lu. Expected. I love the worlds she creates. That’s something she excels at. Things that worked: I loved loved loved our main character Talin. Her vocal cords were hurt when she was a child so the only way she can speak is by sign language, which lucky for her, her entire battalion is required to learn in battle. I have never read ya where the main character can’t actually speak. This novel is fast paced and easy to keep up with. I genuinely loved the progression and how easy this was for me to get through. Things that didn’t work: The heartbreak in this novel is continuous. Our characters are constantly beaten down and struggling. It is extremely easy to connect with them and cheer them on. Just a heads up for potential readers, it will not be an emotionally easy read I loved this. I’m just sad it is a series and we’re going to have to wait between books. That stresses me out to no end. I highly recommend my ya fans check this book out. Definitely worth the read!

Fast paced sci-fi/fantasy/dystopian

I really enjoyed Skyhunter, another winner from Marie Lu. Tallin is a refugee and is mute. She is a Striker, a special type of fighter, for the country of Mara. Mara is under threat from the Karensa Federation, which has invaded every other country except for Mara. Tallin and her mother fled to Mara when the Federation invaded their own country Basea. Mara does not treat its refugees well. Even though Tallin risks her life for Mara, she is mocked and called a "rat". The Strikers are trained to fight "ghosts", dangerous genetically modified people turned into monsters created by the Federation. The story gets going when an unusual prisoner from the Federation is captured by Mara. He is slated for execution. Sensing something important about him, Tallin advocates to spare his life. Skyhunter is a fast paced sci-fi/fantasy/dystopian. The Federation is truly chilling in its treatment of people. There are references to an ancient society that met with an apocalyptic end, which makes the reader to want to learn more. The characters are interesting and well developed. Tallin's character offers the unique perspective of that of a refugee and a mute person. Skyhunter is the first book in a series. I look forward to future installments.

Skyhunter is awesome!

This book really drew me in with the first description of a beleaguered land (Mara) trying to fight off the Karensa Federation that has conquered the rest of the area with their twisted use of the Early One's advanced technology. The Federation uses Ghosts to do their dirty work but Mara has its Strikers and Shields to fight back. And that is what this story is about, from the viewpoint of Talin. Talin is a strong character that does her best as a Striker, to defend Mara, the land that she and her mother fled to after their country was conquered. I think it is cool that she can do all that, even with the inability to speak. She is a very capable fighter, yet still compassionate like when she stops the execution of Red. Her friends, Adena and Jeran are great too. Red is totally awesome! His secret is really big and cool and that is all I will say about it. I do have to mention the cover, which I thought was pretty with all the streaks of color but it did not make sense and I thought it was all lines with a person in the middle. When all is revealed later on in the story though, the cover made perfect sense and is a really cool piece of art. This is a really good book but it ends on a major cliffhanger! I still recommend it though.

I haven’t read this but I NEEED ITT!!!

I just need this book so much right now. Especially during COVID
