The Sky Is Falling Down. And all her life, Aven has been trained to prevent it from collapsing completely. As a keeper of her underwater empire, her blood is laced with the magic that allows her to seal the 'sky', to reinforce the barrier that holds the great Sea Above in place. But that sea has never liked being restrained. Strange things are happening in the western corners of the empire. There are rumors of increasingly broken skies. Rising flood waters. Of a tidal wave of destruction that is spreading, racing toward Aven's own peaceful, glittering kingdom. When a routine sky sealing goes tragically wrong, Aven finds herself thrust into a journey toward those hostile western lands, desperate for answers, for a way to stop that wave from surging deeper into the empire and lifting tensions between kingdoms already on the brink of war. And what she discovers will challenge everything she thought she believed, forcing her to rise and meet an impossible destiny-or else watch the sky crash down and drown her along with the rest of her world.… (mais)

I'm new to this author, and wasn't sure what to expect with this series, but I'm so glad I read an advance copy! I'm always looking for a fast-paced fantasy, and this one is just what I needed! I couldn't get enough of this story, with it's world-building and fun characters. Aven kind of reminds me of Aelin from ToG, but I loved how the story managed to stay unique while also resembling other YA/NA fantasy themes I've enjoyed in the past. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series! ( )

Rich world building, fast-paced adventure, a dash of romance and a wondrous quest make this a book to get lost in and wish for the continuation as soon as the last page is done.

Aven lives in a world caught in a layer between the water—ocean above and below. She is a keeper of the barrier which holds the ocean of the sky from breaking and flooding her world, one of many. Although her world as existed for eons, the barrier is now growing weaker, not only in the kingdom in which she resides, but in the surrounding areas as well. Or so rumor has it. Her king refuses to admit a problem exists and keeps the keepers close to his land. When Aven's brother dies during the sealing of a dangerous rift, she embarks to do the task he was secretly going to undertake...one that leaves her hunted by the king himself and has put a price on her head. Aven is determined to find an item, which myth claims will hold the skies permanently and save them all. But with the entire kingdom and more hunting her down...and her hopes laid on something which may not even exist...the quest quickly becomes even harder than she ever dreamed it would.

This is a read for fantasy friends who enjoy an exciting adventure and a little girl power on the side. Aven is a character easy to root for. She is powerful but not more than many of the other keepers; she is a little risk friendly but not stupid; and she does make mistakes. She's not even sure that what's happening around her is necessarily what she wanted. But she tries to keep her heart in the right place and do what is right, and that's what makes her wonderful.

Aven is by no means in this adventure alone. She has several friends who support her and meets more along the way—as well as enough adversaries. Trust needs to be won, and each character has their own role as well as personality. While romance does come into play, it by no means overplays the main plot. The adventure holds the center stage the entire way through.

The world is quite different than what I suspected and promises many more surprises in the upcoming series. The author lays out the details in just the right amount and at the right time, to allow the richness of the world to unfold and maintain a fairly secure base in its own logic. There are many secrets and mysteries, but that's part of the adventure...and something even Aven questions along the way. It is an exciting start to an intriguing series, and I'm looking forward to see where it goes next.

I received an ARC copy and enjoyed the tale quite a bit. ( )
