Into the Skies by Kay Humphreys is the first book in a fast-paced, dystopian, fantasy romance. – I was not Placed. The fae didn’t choose me as worthy or exceptional. Yet I—a fierce and mighty barmaid—could change our entire world. This must be a dream. Though, it’s beginning to feel more like a nightmare. Can true love save her world, and… is it even a world worth saving?
I received an advance review copy (eARC) for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily and in all honesty.
Into the Skies by Kay Humphreys
I didn’t expect anything while reading. I needed something to pass the time, which worked perfectly with this one.
Oh, I like those characters—a lot.
Aster is very charming. And I’m pretty curious about him by the end of the book.
Jaylyn’s stone statue of a warrior turns out to get interesting as well, honestly. And I enjoy having him around a lot.
Those characters, which got added later on – and I won’t mention names as spoilers – I love them so far, especially the ancient ones. Readers of the book might know who I mean.
The story itself was fun to read and experience. I wouldn’t claim it as something extraordinary, but I can’t complain. I’m pretty interested in how their journey continues.
As for the writing style.. some parts were a bit getting used to, but nothing outstanding in either a good or a wrong way.
I don’t get the POV switch, tho. Maybe to look into those other characters’ heads, but it wasn’t even needed for me.
The one thing I thought of as annoying – but it gets to a way to deal with it – starts when they release the “official” soulmate. I get it; the soul cries for that one person, and I don’t mind it per se. However, it got better to deal with it.
POV: mini-switch, 98% Jay’s POV
