New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann and her daughter Melanie Brockmann have written a pulse-pounding novel of paranormal suspense set in a near future both fantastic and frightening. "Original and exciting, NIGHT SKY propels readers into a dangerous future. Loved it." —Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of Made For You and the Wicked Lovely series
Skylar Reid is shaken when Sasha, the little girl she babysits, is kidnapped. Scared that the weird dreams she's been having about Sasha are real-and even more afraid that Sasha is already dead. When a mysterious girl with extreme butt-kicking abilities roars into town on a motorcycle and, well, stalks Skylar things get even weirder. Supergirl Dana tells Sky that she also has abilities – that a hormone in their blood makes them stronger, faster, smarter. A hormone that the makers of a new drug called Destiny will murder to get their hands on.
Dana and Milo, her dangerously hot yet oh-so-forbidden partner in crime, want Sky to join them in their mission – to mold Sky into the ultimate weapon. She can sense there's something about her abilities they're not telling her. But the only way to save Sasha and stop other girls from being taken is to embrace the weird...and fight Destiny.
Night Sky was a character driven story about a young girl named Skylar who figures out that what fate has planned for her, isn’t going to be easy. I enjoyed this one and I’m not a big YA person so I was pleasantly surprised. The world building in Night Sky was top notch. I could really step into the scenes and experience what was happening. There was plenty of action to keep me as a reader engaged and a touch of romance to pique my interest. Night Sky contained some suspenseful thriller aspects and the paranormal elements allowed me to feel right at home. The book contained your typical teenage behavior which is probably why I liked the book but didn’t love it. If you a fan of YA, I think this one is definitely for you. The author has another book called Fight Destiny for adult readers that I am absolutely going to dive in to. I think while this particular book is great but not an absolute must read for me as more of an adult reader, the authors have become those who I definitely want to see more from.
