Sparrow Rising (Skyborn #1)

We rated this book:


The world of the Skyborn series was amazing. I love seeing how different people create their worlds and the stories within them. This is a fantastic tale of adventure and growing up. The main character, Ellie, is daring with high hopes of growing up to become a Goldwing. She can be stubborn at times, but she has a good heart. Watching Ellie try to see where she wants to go, with her new friends who go directly against everything she has been preparing for, makes for an interesting read.

I always enjoy it when books tackle the question of what is morally right and wrong, where the villains and heroes sometimes intermix, and although Sparrow Rising is targeted toward younger audiences, I still enjoyed reading it. It was a nice quick read and I can’t wait for the next book! If you enjoyed any of Khoury’s other books, like The Mystwich School of Musicraft, then you are sure to enjoy this one! The book also had a summary of all the different clans and a map at the front to keep you on track if you forget anything.
