Genre: New Adult Fantasy, Steampunk Adventure
In a world governed by the opposing forces of the mystical House of Tarot and the tribal Great Families, Synn is caught in the crossfire. He witnesses the slaughter of innocent people, and the devastating murder of his father. This act awakens his Mark of power, a Mark greater than any the world has seen in a very long time.
Queen Nix thought she won a great prize when she destroyed Synn’s father, the leader of the strongest Great Families. She had no idea she’d be doubly blessed by capturing his son. However, before Synn can become her treasured weapon, before she can use him to bring the rest of the world to its knees, she must break him and bind his soul to hers.
She does her job with brutal brilliance. Synn’s mind is broken and his soul is seared to hers in an unbreakable bond.
That doesn’t stop him from wanting to be free. She may have broken his mind and claimed his soul, but he will find a way to destroy her.
Experience a world of ships that sail the clouds and cites buried beneath the ocean, and survive the fiery battle brought forth by those who control the forces of nature!
My Thoughts: Fall of Sky City was an amazing book! That seems like a simple description, but it fits so perfectly.
This entire world that SM Blooding created sounds beautiful. I can picture it in my mind while I am reading. The people, their homes, the creatures, the sky. Blooding gave me such a clear picture of it all. The dynamics between the people were very interesting. I was especially interested in how the Elders of the Great Families held meetings, and how the House of Tarot could gain so much control over people. I also loved the different Marks and the powers people had.
I will end by repeating that this book is amazing. I was drawn into it quickly and I hated when it ended. I want to know what will happen in the next book. SM Blooding did such a great job with Fall of Sky City. It's a book I will love reading again and again.
SM Blooding lives in Colorado with her pet rock, Rockie, Ms. Bird, the Chicken and SistaPITA. It’s quite the zoo. She’s taken a break from the piano, which Ms, Bird is quite happy about, and now knows more than one word in Arabic. Basically, she can say hello, good-bye, give it to me, and hurry up!
She’s dated vampires, werewolves, sorcerers, weapons smugglers and US Government assassins. Yes. She has stories.
