SST BLOG TOUR: SKY IN THE DEEP - Playlist +Giveaway!

7:52:00 PM

Hello hello everyone! Today I'd like to share with you all about a book I'm so in love with right now. As I've been wrapping up my second year of college during the last few weeks and homestretch of finals, I read this book in the breaks I had among the chaos. I loved it so much, in fact, that I preordered it to my house back home and had my dad read it! The next day he called to tell me he was 15 chapters in and loving it.

A story about a warrior amid constant battle with a rival clan, among lies and secrecy, a blood feud that runs generations deep, and the importance of family, this book is sure to leave you racing page after page in anticipation of more.

Our heroine Eelyn reminded me a lot of one of my all-time favorite characters, Lagertha Lothbrok from the History Channel show Vikings. This book has intense battles, riveting action, dark secrets, and even a flair of forbidden love. Taking inspiration from the deep roots of Norse myth, Scandinavian culture, and the lush spirit of adventure this novel captures, I put together a playlist fit for a shieldmaiden.

Keep reading for a playlist, synopsis, and a giveaway for a finished copy of the book!

SYNOPSIS (from Goodreads; add the book to your list here!)

Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield — her brother, fighting with the enemy — the brother she watched die five years ago.

Faced with her brother's betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.

She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating
