At the end of one world, there always lies another.
Safire, a soldier, knows her role in this world is to serve the King of Firgaard—helping to maintain the peace in her oft-troubled nation.
Eris, a deadly pirate, has no such conviction. Known as the Death Dancer for her ability to evade even the most determined of pursuers, she possesses a superhuman power to move between worlds.
When one can roam from dimension to dimension, can one ever be home? Can love and loyalty truly exist?
Now Safire and Eris—sworn enemies—find themselves on a common mission: to find Asha, the last Namsara. From the port city of Darmoor to the fabled faraway Star Isles, their search and their stories become woven ever more tightly together as they discover the uncertain fate they’re hurtling towards may just be a shared one. In this world—and the next.
After reading The caged queen and being a little disappointed about it, I was wondering what Ciccarelli had in store for us. I am not the biggest fan of Roa, so maybe that’s why I liked that book less. I had a feeling that Safire and Eris were kickass characters, and I was right.
I was in quite a reading slump regarding YA books and The Sky Weaver was exactly what I needed at that moment. It had an interesting plot and I got sucked into the book from start to finish. It seems that the world of Iskari has been inspired by different worlds, because we got to see a whole new world in this book. Of course we still saw Firgaard, but little of it. Dragons didn’t have a prominent place in this book either, but pirates have.
Ciccarelli added an extra dimension to this world by letting the characters walk ‘across’, something like an in-between world. Furthermore, an extra magic element has been added to The Sky Weaver and that worked pretty well too. So yes, The Sky Weaver is an amazing conclusion to a very interesting series.
