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.

Tuhle knihu jsem četla hodně pomalu. OK, ne úplně pomalu, trvalo mi to dva dny… řekněme tedy, že jsem ji četla poctivě, slovo od slova, některé pasáže dvakrát. Adrienne Young mě dokázala vtáhnout do svého světa téměř okamžitě a už na desáté stránce jsem věděla, že to bude pecka. A byla. Pokud patří mezi vaše oblíbené seriál Vikingové, tohle je must read, atmosféra knihy je mu tak podobná, že vám v hlavě naskakují stejně kolorované obrázky, šedomodré, zahalené v mlze.

Oh, Sky in the Deep, how I love thee.  Let me count the ways:

- An expansive Viking-inspired world filed with interesting lore.

- A kick-ass heroine who never wavers in her beliefs and fights for what is right, even if it is different from what she was taught.

- A perfectly paced plot that keeps you engaged through the whole story.

- EPIC BATTLES!  Clan against Clan.  Clan against mythic creatures.

- A small dash of romance that enhances the story, instead of taking center point.

- Even though the book is labeled YA, it did not feel YA to me.
