About the Author

Adrienne Young is a born and bred Texan turned California girl. She is a foodie with a deep love of history and travel and a shameless addiction to coffee.

Reviews

"A rousing saga and moving coming-of-age tale, perfect for those who appreciate the wild and the wildlings, strong female protagonists, and cinematic battles." - Kirkus, Starred Review

"Drawing on Viking history and lore, debut author Young crafts an exciting, at times heart-wrenching story centered around 17-year-old Eelyn, her Aska clan, and their centuries-old war with the Riki...Young's often poetic writing forms a stark juxtaposition with her vivid descriptions of battle and bloodshed, creating a clear picture of the brutality of war." - Publishers Weekly

"Young's brutal, emotional debut is set in a land that is as unforgiving as its people. The strongest aspect of Young's work is the world building; she packs it with details that viscerally pull the reader into Eelyn's world. Young has also populated this world with complicated characters who evolve as readers get to know them. Even better, the theme at the core of the story--overcoming prejudice and unifying to fight a greater threat--resonates with current real-world issues. With its gorgeous prose and epic battle scenes, fantasy lovers will be easily satisfied." - Booklist

"Viking history aficionados as well as fans of Sarah J. Maas' Throne of Glass series will fall in love with this richly crafted world. In particular, readers will respond to Eelyn, who is as emotionally passionate as she is physically capable. Young has built a detailed culture into Sky in the Deep in which her characters thrive. This intensely authentic story will appeal to adult readers as well as teens." - RT Reviews, 4 1/2 stars Top Pick

"Eelyn is a relentlessly fierce warrior, and even her romance with a Riki fighter doesn't quite soften her; indeed, the two find that their lust for blood is almost as strong as their lust for each other... The action on the battlefield and the rising political tensions between the clans will easily keep readers involved through the final page." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A refreshing tale where life is tested and people have to overcome their differences to fight a bigger foe to survive. A fast-paced, action-filled fantasy for all YA collections." - School Library Journal
