When we last left Skye Parker she had finally made a decision between the Order and the Rebellion. She chose neither. She chose herself and the cause her parents died for. When A Radiant Sky begins, Skye is faced with the consequences of her actions.
Asher and her can’t be together and he feels betrayed by her decision. Raven, who has been a massive pain in the butt for the last two books, actually becomes a quick favorite by backing up Skye. The Order promises revenge as does the Rebellion. As of this moment, Skye and her friends are at war with two warring angel groups and the end of the world might be near.
Through all of that Skye has to figure out her mother’s vision of the circle of Rogues that were to stand and help bring down both parties and she has to deal with her junior year of high school coming to a close. Talk about no pressure.
I was already a little wary about this series as I made my way through the first two books. Usually I like angel novels, and this one was good it just lacked a lot of things for me. But for this book my wariness increased. The book jumped around a lot and spent too much time on certain events, while the ending was rushed. And speaking of the ending, really? After everything these people went through… sigh. I’m not a big fan of endings to begin with, so A Radiant Sky’s ending made me feel just downright angry. It was too rushed, it ended too cleanly, I could go on but I’m just glad this series is over.
Final Rating: 2 out of 5 stars. I don’t like writing bad reviews, I really don’t but in this book’s case it was necessary. Jumpy plot. No real character development, except for maybe Raven. And again the ending. Really wished this had been better.
Bookshelf worthy? Support your local library, or just skip this one all together. There are better angel books out there.
