Title: The Clouded Sky
Author: Megan Crewe
Publisher: Razorbill Canada
Publication Date: May 5, 2015
Summary (from Goodreads): Skylar never imagined that she’d end up helping a boy from another planet search through Earth’s history for a way to end his people’s secret control over her world. But now that she’s been drawn into Win’s group of rebels, she can’t walk away until their mission is completed.
Whisked to the immense space station that Win and the rest of the Kemyates call home, Skylar discovers that even the rebels don’t see her as an equal. Determined to prove herself amid her homesickness in the alien environment, she throws herself into the work to free Earth. Her keen attention to detail and skill with numbers start to earn her colleagues’ respect, but that doesn’t make her position any less precarious. As the Enforcers escalate their attempts to capture the rebels, it becomes clear that someone within the resistance is leaking information to the enemy. And Skylar may be in the best position to uncover the traitor.
With each step toward the truth, Skylar is pulled deeper into the lives around her and the full horrors of her planet’s imprisonment. To see her mission through, she must risk her life, her heart, and the future she’s worked so hard to preserve.
Aliens, rebels, traitors and space, The Clouded Sky by Megan Crewe has it all! This seond story of the Earth & Sky trilogy begins immediately where book one left off. It is one of the most thrilling mysteries I’ve read. This sequel definitely won’t disappoint!
The Clouded Sky is an amazing sequel to Earth and Sky. It begins right after the first book ends, with no gaps in the story. I found it really interesting how The Clouded Sky is basically the opposite of Earth & Sky. In this book, the main character, Skylar, is taken to the alien planet called Kemya where she must act like a slave. In book one, an alien from that planet arrives on Earth to discover parts of a secret weapon. I really enjoyed how the characters had gone through the same stress of living on a new planet, though Skylar has it much worse.
The Clouded Sky is an epic mystery novel also set in space. After residing with rebels in space, the police of the series, the Enforcers, are after Skylar and her group of alien friends. When a member of the group leaks information to the Enforcers, Skylar is tasked with finding out who. The reader is along for a ride that is so suspenseful and humorous, it will engage and delight at the same time.
The Earth and Sky books both have such cliffhanger endings! They blow the reader’s mind and then just end. Thankfully, the books are published on a six-month basis, so readers won’t have to wait a whole year for the final book. Thank you, Megan Crewe!
If you are a sci-fi fan, I strongly recommend The Clouded Sky to you. It is filled with mystery and an all-new alien planet. Before you read The Clouded Sky, however, you should probably check out book one, Earth and Sky.
