A Radiant Sky (A Beautiful Dark #3)
What I enjoyed: Skye is an incredibly strong female protagonist that comes into her power in such a realistic, gradual way. I really appreciated that Skye wasn’t a superhero from the beginning -- she had to learn who she was, what she could do, and then work at it. When the protagonist has to work to be strong, she is so very relatable, and really a great role model.
What readers might not enjoy: Now, there were some times when Skye’s humanity shows through -- when she makes decisions, or doesn’t, and she seems like an idiot. But that just makes her even more likable to me, because she’s being realistic. She’s being human. She’s making mistakes and not being a superwoman, and I really do appreciate that. I know that not all fans will -- you might want Skye to continue being a badass and crushing all the bad guys and saving all her friends. But that's not what real life is like, and even though this is a fantasy world, I still want my protagonists to make mistakes sometimes.
The writing is good, the romance takes backstage to the protagonist’s journey, and the epic battle is, well, simply epic! I felt it was a strong wrap-up of the series, but not all readers of the first 2 books will think so.
Great for fans of the Beautiful Creatures, Shatter Me, Wither, Daughter of Smoke & Bone, and other supernatural and dystopian romances.
