Review quote

'It's perfect. I simply adore this world, with its humour, love, action and suspense . . her writing [is] beautiful and her characters realistic.' thebookaddictedgirl.com 'Finding Sky is something really unique - it's not about vampires, werewolves or even fallen angels. Tingly, romantic, funny in places, warming, adventurous are just a few words I could use to describe Finding Sky' BooksforTeens With so many paranormal romance titles now available for the YA market, Finding Sky is something a little bit different. Rather than relying on popular paranormal archetypes, Joss Stirling has created a fascinating world within our world where those with a variety of psychic powers live among us.' iwasateenagebookgeek.com It easily draws you into the mysteries of Wickenridge and all its inhabitants... Everything about this book was brilliant. Geek and Book Nerd (blog) Finding Sky by Joss Stirling is a prime example and a reminder to all that sometimes reading books outside your genre can be positively surprising... Sidrah Shaikh, Devise (blog) So different; so intriguing, so addictive...The writing is spot on and so far from predictable...Fans of Twilight will enjoy this series and we HOPE they make a film of this one!

Our customer reviews

Soulmates, a concept of love and intimacy many people want to believe in to explain a pretty amazing bond between two people.When I started FINDING SKY I hoped for exactly that idea of soulmates unfolding and a cute romance between our protagonists to develop. Unfortunately both, Zed and Sky didn't really grow on me. From the beginning Zed is unfriendly and everything but courteous to Sky. Call it bad boy behaviour, but I just didn't like it. She still starts to develop a crush on him based on his looks and the magnetic pull he has on her. And then at some point into the story the instant love finally sets in. I didn't believe in them like in other couples, because he is suddenly totally into Sky and then she's the one to decide to keep away. A Tug o' war of stupidity. I didn't feel the connection between both characters, but that could've been because I didn't feel a connection to Sky either. It doesn't happen often that I dislike main characters that fast and determinedly, but sometimes it just doesn't click. You probably know that phenomenon all too well. Sky was too innocent and childish for my taste to come across as a touch and admirable heroine. Every single of her conversations with other people and her parents felt like that, too, like explaining a little kid what it has to do. What I liked about FINDING SKY are the different paranormal talents Sky, Zed and his family have. I'm always a fan of weird powers to goof around and save the world with. Then there are the antagonists who have powers of their own and who make the story a bit more interesting and less dragging. The intricate leafy design on the cover continues to decorate every new chapter of FINDING SKY. A graphical plus that unfortunately doesn't help to enhance the book's week content. THE VERDICT FINDING SKY- Soulmates with superpowers and a bunch of evil people against them, nothing new. Another instant love, unconvincing leading characters and very slow story flow. You might still be interested in Joss Stirling's concept of soulmates though. And FINDING SKY could be something for people who like music inspired books, because music's also a large part of Sky and Zed's story.show more

This book was so intense, 'Finding Sky' told a unique story in an extrordinary way with strong, lovable protagonists. Stirling built a wonderful world that I never wanted to leave. I fell in love with Zed & the other Benedict boys. I've read it more times than I can count. My favourite book of the year by far.show more
