Wild Sky

Night Sky Series # 2

Young Adult Paranormal with romantic elements

First published 2015



Skylar, Calvin, Dana, and Milo are back, but now their unlikely Destiny-fighting team includes...



Garrett Hathaway...?



When Garrett's friend Jilly goes missing, Coconut Key Academy's most "popular" bully and all-around douche approaches Sky and Calvin to ask for help.



From Garrett's description of the missing girl's telekinesis, it's likely that Jilly is a Greater-Than like Sky and Dana—a girl with rare super-powers. And it's highly likely that Jilly's been kidnapped for her valuable blood—an essential ingredient in the dangerous, addictive street drug called Destiny, which makes users young, healthy, beautiful—and profoundly evil—before it kills them.



When Skylar and her team finally track down Jilly, the girl oddly refuses to be rescued. In the struggle that ensues, Calvin—who's been in a wheelchair since he was nine—is accidentally injected with Destiny. For the short-term, he can walk again, but the drug will eventually kill him. After it turns him evil...



Unless Sky can find a way to save her best friend's life...



Wild Sky is the second book in a YA series set in the same dark future as Suzanne Brockmann's Born to Darkness, the first installment in her Fighting Destiny paranormal romance series. The Night Sky YA series has the same mix of suspense, romance, humor, and the paranormal, and deals with many of the same themes, including society's relentless exploitation and devaluation of females, and the empowerment that comes when women and girls recognize their strength and intellect, and stand up, fight back, and save the day.

About the Author

Suzanne Brockmann and her daughter, Melanie Brockmann, have been creative partners, on and off, for many years. Their first project was an impromptu musical duet, when then-six-month-old Melanie surprised and delighted Suz by matching her pitch and singing back to her. (Babies aren’t supposed to be able to do that.) Since then, Mel has gone on to play clarinet and saxophone, to sing in a wedding band, and to run seven-minute miles. She has become one of Sarasota, Florida’s most sought-after personal trainers. Suz has driven an ice-cream truck, directed an a cappella singing group, and can jog a twelve-minute mile when pushed. She is the multi-award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of over fifty-five books. Night Sky is Melanie’s first novel and the mother-daughter team’s first literary collaboration. Each strongly suspects that the other is a Greater-Than.

Looks like the Brockmann team have come up with a new idea of vampires. Good, I was getting a little bored of the old ones. Seems as if they are everywhere anymore. These are a definitely a different breed in the fact that they breed certain "Greater Than" (mostly women) with specific gifts (everyone's is different) and keep them in a closet and drain their blood slowly and mix it with a few other things and inject it into their system. Supposedly, it's a great high. But after a while, it will kill you. But it's great while it lasts. Apparently, this was the second book in this series and while I did not read the first book, it was mentioned several times and I got the gist of what I missed for the most part. However, I still don't know what happened to turn the world into how it became the way it is in this book. I do think that did lead to lesser enjoyment of this book. Nonetheless, I did find the book somewhat entertaining. Sometimes, Sky's whining got on my nerves a few times. But apparently, the authors were just trying to make it real and it is about teenagers. It could have been a little more enjoyable with all the reality for me though. It is certainly a different perspective of a dystopian novel and I did find it for the most part entertaining. I think not reading the first book, put a damper on some of my understanding of what was actually going on in this world of the Brockmann's and felt kind of left out of a few things. Apparently, the way it was left, there will be a third in the series and I'm not sure if I will be reading it or not. I'm still feeling kind of like something happened and I was left out of the loop. Thanks to Sourcebooks and Net Galley for the free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.

Wild Sky by Suzanne Brockmann and Melanie Brockmann is the 2nd book in their Night Sky series. I did not read the 1st book, but this read very well as a standalone. Any major details, including all the main characters are explained very well, when needed. Skylar Reid is our heroine, and she is still learning how to handle the powers she has as a “Greater-Than”. A quick background: In the first book, Skylar learns she has a hormone in her blood which makes her stronger, faster, smarter. A hormone that the makers of a new drug called Destiny will murder to get their hands on. She met Dana (another Greater-Than) and Milo, who would work with her to harness those powers, and she joins them to help stop the kidnapping of young girls who are budding Greater-Thans, to bleed them dry. Calvin is Skylar’s best friend, and wheel chair bound. These four are the main characters of this series. In Wild Sky, Dana is working hard to train Skylar, with the help of Milo and Calvin. Dana has another ulterior motive, her sister is one of those girls that were kidnapped, and she is desperate to find her. Skylar has improved her skills a lot, and Dana suspects she will become even more powerful. When Garrett , someone both Skylar and Calvin knew at school and considered him a bully, approaches them, they try to ignore him. But he pushes his way in explaining that he needs help to find a young girl who has been missing. Garrett ends up joining the gang, offering help and money, as long as they can help try to find Jilly. After spying on Garrett place, where his step mom lives, the gang manages to go and try to rescue Jilly. Unfortunately, during the failed rescue attempt, Calvin is accidently injected with Destiny, the drug that will eventually kill him. But Calvin doesn’t care, because immediately after the injection, he can now walk. The race is on to find a way to cure Calvin before he succumbs to the deeper effects of the drug Destiny’ to help Jilly escape, and to find Lacey, Dana’s sister. I thought that the beginning of the story was someone slow for me, as the characters did not really reach out to me. However, I will say that it did change a bit in the second half, which was very exciting. I will also point out that since I did not read the first book, perhaps this is why I did not feel any connections early on. This was a good story, and I suggest if you read this series, to start with the first book.
