Imprison the Sky
Author: A.C. Gaughen
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Stolen from her family as a child, Aspasia has clawed her way up the ranks of Cyrus’s black market empire to captain her own trading vessel–and she risks it all every time she uses her powerful magic to free as many women, children, and Elementae from slavery as she can.
But Cyrus is close to uncovering her secrets–not only that Aspasia is an air Elementa with the ability to sail her ship through the sky, but that she is also searching for her lost family. And if Aspasia can’t find her younger siblings before Cyrus does, she will never be able to break free.
Armed with her loyal crew full of Elementae and a new recruit who controls an intriguing power, Aspasia finds herself in the center of a brewing war that spans every inch of the ocean, and her power alone may not be enough to save her friends, family, and freedom.
Spoiler free Summary:
Reign the Earth was one of my top reads last year and holds a special place in my heart. Considering this I was very weary when I read the description of this book and the main character was not Shalia. She was such an amazing and influential character that I didn’t think she could be topped or even that another character could come close. A.C. Gaughen has blown me away once again, not only with her powerful characters, but also amazing plot.
A.C. Gaughen has expanded even more on this fascinating world that she has created and made me fall in love with. Aspasia was the character that I didn’t know was needed and was the perfect fit for the sequel. She is what I call a dynamic character. She comes from such a harsh background and just keeps adapting, to keep not only herself going, but helping those around her that she loves.
In the past I am usually the type of person that always wants the same characters in every book. I typically don’t like when authors try to have a million new characters in every book and have it all connect somehow in the end. A.C. Gaughen is wonderful and she pulled it off and I loved every second of it!
This book has everything you need in life. You have badass characters, pirates, fighting, and even a little romance. It makes the perfect mixture for an outstanding fantasy. She has amazed me once again and I can wait to see what she has in store for the next book in the series. If you haven’t read Reign the Earth please go read it right now! Also don’t forget to pick your copy of Imprison the Sky tomorrow!
From your local bibliophile, until next time!
