One thought on “The Burning Sky

  1. Emily May

    Why should Atlantis pay any mind to me Because you are younger and have far potential Potential for what For greatness The Burning Sky is the author s first YA Fantasy novel, after writing many adult Historical Romance novels, and it really shows I expected some light fantasy and possibly a romance I was okay with that but this story is so ridiculously superficial And not even in a fluffy, somewhat enjoyable way.Some of YA s toughest critics on enjoyed this book, so I felt sure I would love it [...]

  2. Khanh (the meanie)

    Actual rating 3.5Be patient.That s the advice I would give to anyone starting this book I ended up liking it a lot, but it took a long, long time for me to get past the first few chapters.Sherry Thomas is an established author in the Historical Romance genre this is her first foray into the YA fantasy genre, and I think it definitely shows I can see it in the writing style the book reads so much comfortably and flows so much smoothly when the author is writing about the Victorian England setti [...]

  3. Wendy Darling

    Dazzling magic, great characters, WYVERNS, and lovely romance That s pretty much all you need to know.

    A messy business, rescuing princes 3.5 stars There are dragons and magic princes and they go to freaking Eton of all English boarding schools How could I not love this, right Just check out the opening Just before the start of Summer Half, in April 1883, a very minor event took place at Eton College, that venerable and illustrious English public school for boys A sixteen year old pupil named Archer Fairfax returned from a three month absence, caused by a fractured femur, to resume his education.

    DNF I thought for sure I would love this since a few of my friends highly recommended it to me, but I hated it The main characters are terrible and underdeveloped Let me count the ways Iolanthe is virtually a Mary Sue and can do no wrong She is The One with the power to save them because of reasons and has the BEST of luck wink, wink Prince Titus is a spoiled brat that wants everything his way He even tries to manipulate Iolanthe several times to get her to do things by preying on her feelings T [...]

  7. Simona Bartolotta

    And that is why you do not trifle with the Master of the Domain This is the story of how I fell in love with a book from literally the first three sentences.Literally.The first three sentences.Literally.I m not joking.That can t be true, you say How dare you You know what Just read this already.Yeah, I know And I am confident that you now understand what I meant by first three sentences This prologue swept me off my feet It left me breathless I have no word to describe how surprised and happy an [...]

  8. Rachel E. Carter

    Okay, that was a bit creepy wasn t it How about this Hey, it s not my fault If you read the book you will totally understand why I chose Shrek GIF s.So I read the blurb and was totally anticipating a hot arrogant prince cough, cough, no surprise I would be drawn to that , a She s The Man movie meets Alanna The First Adventure storyline, and some really cool Harry Potter style magic What I got was way of a British boys club vibe we are talking about things like cricket, not Harry Potter the scho [...]

  10. Christina (A Reader of Fictions)

    Actual Rating 4.5 stars, but I m rounding up because I loved every minute.In my experience, YA novels written by romance novelists generally go one of two ways awesomely or atrociously Now, this may not be the case for most, but, personally, I go to a romance novel and a YA novel for totally different reasons, and I don t want a romance novel from my YA romance can perhaps should be a part of that, but there should be going on than that Thankfully, Sherry Thomas has written an absolutely amazin [...]

  11. Anne

    4.5 starsAlso reviewed for Addicted2Heroines.The Burning Sky is one of those books with layers of goodness There were so many things I loved about it that I m not really sure where to start I guess I can t really complain about this kind of dilemma, can I Although, knowing meI could definitely try.I guess I ll tackle the characters first Iolanthe is an awesome female lead And what I mean by that is that she isn t so perfect and wonderful that you don t believe she s real She has flaws, but she a [...]

    Instagram Twitter Facebook Pinterest I read this for the Yule Bingo Challenge, for the category of Harry chosen one trope For info on this challenge, click here This book has some of my favorite things in it magic spells, dragons, and forbidden romance I ve had this kicking around my Kindle and finally got around to reading it because I needed a book with the chosen one trope THE BURNING SKY, which reads a bit like a Victorian era Harry Potter, than suited in that capacity.When Prince Titus se [...]

  13. Jess

    Don t read it for the fantasy, read it for the love These characters will steal your heart and never give it back Just go with it.I could eat fantasy for every meal of the day and still be satisfied for the rest of my life I m a simple girl Yes, the Jess who exists on the cusps of 2014 and 2015 still prefers to devour a fantasy over her nemesis, the contemporary , just one that won t work her as much As a fantasy, The Burning Sky was confusing, rather convoluted and hard to follow word for word [...]

  14. Nina (Every Word A Doorway)

    3.5 starsI was warned by my friends Nastassja and Katerina that this book was going to make me fall in love with a prince and it did Titus VII is my small son and must be protected at all costs As a hopeless shipper of love hate relationships and devoted fan of girls disguising as boys, The Burning Sky was the perfect read for me, in the sense that it offered me a light read with some of my favourites plot devices Alas, I could not ignore the flaws this urban fantasy presented me with, which inc [...]

  15. Allison

    This is the kind of Fantasy that I can just devour in a day It s light, adventurous, romantic, and hard to put down Soooo not epic It s not that I don t enjoy Epic Fantasy, too It s just such an investment, and you have to have patience, and often the characters are just a little too remote Usually I have to take breaks from the Epics, both during and between installments Sometimes I just want to jump in and enjoy I want a couple of characters that I can like, with problems that are a bit smalle [...]

  16. Brittney ~ Reverie and Ink

    This was adorable I d land it somewhere between 3.5 4 stars It took me a little while to get into this one The beginning was a bit slow and confusing I think it picked up around the page 100 mark By the time I met the princeling and realize everything he s got up his sleeve well things got interesting.I really loved the magic system the vaulting, jumping into a live scenario book, etc Really creative and fun world Though at times, I found myself a bit lost The characters were SO sweet despite th [...]

    First read September 2013Second read September 20154.5 starsThe Burning Sky is one of those books with a premise and a cover that pretty much had me salivating It sounded perfect for me It hit all the right notes And while I recognized many points on which the book could have been better, this was such an engaging and absorbing read that I loved it all the same.Let s get the elephant out of the room the romance It is amazing Irresistible Addicting Iolanthe and Titus have a chemistry that drips o [...]

  18. Katy

    I really like this story, but I wasn t too crazy about the delivery.Maybe it was just me, but Thomas style was very difficult to read The third person narrative type of delivery made me feel as if I m listening to an ancient storyteller depicting a folklore And the way she formed her sentence structure, I felt as if I was reading Old English not really or a foreign language nope, it s English The switching back and forth of points of view was interesting, but it wasn t very consistent, so at tim [...]

  19. Renu

    He kissed the shell of her ear Then let me tell you this I live for you, and you alone The Burning Sky is a mesmerising epic fantasy with compelling characters and a heart achingly beautiful romance.The world building in The Burning Sky is phenomenal Thomas has weaved together a world of magic, adventure, and intrigue In an effort to correct a tainted batch of light elixir, Iolanthe Seabourne summons a bolt of lightning and sets in motion a chain of events that will forever change her life Watch [...]

    I have changed my rating from a 3 to 2 1 2 stars.Beware, this review will have a shitload of The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra gifs.Well this was a lot different from what I was expecting.It reminded me a lot of my baby Zuko Heart eyes And how could I forget dear Mako Now enough of that It all began with a ruined elixir and a bolt of lightning.Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation or so she s been told The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm [...]

  21. Maggie ☘ (Reader in Wonderland)

    A messy business, rescuing princes This book was so slow for me So Slow Very little happened for most of the book and everything was packed just in the last chapters And I just did not care I didn t care about the story I didn t care about the characters in the slightest The story is alternately told from two POVs Iolanthe The Chosen One elemental mage, and Titus scheming prince of the realm While Titus s character had some personality at least, Iolanthe was entirely one dimensional Most of her [...]

  22. AH

    A breathtaking masterpiece Wow Have you ever finished reading a book and just wanted to sit there and hug it and read it all over again The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas is that kind of book.One of the things that I enjoyed about The Burning Sky was the complex and interesting world The book is set in England at the Eton School at the end of the 19th century But it is also set in a parallel magical world where elemental mages are hunted down by a powerful Inquisitor and a formidable mage known as [...]

  23. Cinda

    The Burning Sky combines one of the most creative magical system since Harry Potter with sizzling romance and characters who will win your heart.

    Just before the start of Summer Half, in April 1883, a very minor event took place at Eton College, that venerable and illustrious English public school for boys A sixteen year old pupil named Archer Fairfax returned from a three month absence, caused by fractured femur, to resume his education Almost every word in the preceding sentence is false Archer Fairfax had not suffered a broken limb He had never before set foot in Eton His name was not Archer Fairfax And he was not, in fact, even a he I [...]

  25. Mogsy (MMOGC)

    3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 201The Burning Sky is a beautifully written novel, told in what I feel is a slightly formal tone than most young adult fiction The main plot itself about a girl who discovers she is the greatest elemental mage of her generation and who now must avoid being taken by enemies that want her power is actually quite straightforward, but the classical style adds on multiple layers to this fantasy story.I have to say the description of the book doesn t do [...]

  26. Gillian Berry

    Rating We went from a hot mess of a beginning to an inventive, magical tale with EPIC romance.Originally posted at Writer of WrongsI spent all of my Across a Star Swept Sea review talking about my favorite tropes, and I sort of wish I d saved that discussion for this book Because The Burning Sky employed two of my utter favorite tropes brilliantly, so brilliantly that they overcame what I thought was a kind of horrendous beginning Girl Disguised as a Boy and I Hate You I Love You I started this [...]

  27. Keertana

    Rating 3.5 StarsIt isn t a truth universally acknowledged but it should be that The Burning Sky has one of the absolute worst beginnings ever In fact, for nearly the entirety of the first quarter, I put the novel down dozens of time, scratched my head in confusion, searched online for clarity to my questions, and once again picked up the novel with a sigh It s a chore to barrel through the beginning of this story but, I promise you, it is very much worth it.The Burning Sky is the type of novel I [...]

  28. Rane

    With a whole lot of curiosity I delved into this book, and was completely immersed in the world Sherry Thomas created I was hooked by page one Everything from the characters to the magical world and the time period.This didn t feel at all like a YA, maybe because both leads Iolanthe Seabourne Prince Titus VII while only 16 acted mature for their ages and didn t act sullen or whine about their life, but took life by the horns and thought their actions through instead of jumping the gun and rushin [...]

  29. Angie

    Originally reviewed here AngievilleIn a somewhat amusing turn of events, I actually picked up a copy of Sherry Thomas debut young adult fantasy THE BURNING SKY because I read one of her adult historical romances several months back and really loved it How s that for a commentary on the state of affairs in my neck of the woods these days And while I really do love the cover after having read it and for blessedly not featuring any actual human beings or, worse, a young boy reaching out to a young [...]

  30. Melissa (Ever So Mela)

    Don t be put off by the 3 stars This is the story of a girl who fooled a thousand boys, a boy who fooled an entire country, a partnership that would change the fate of realms, and a power to challenge the greatest tyrant the world had ever known This is a very, very light YA epic fantasy It reads like a middle grade book.I m pretty sure this was her first take on epic fantasy, having only written historical fiction before, and it shows The world building was severely lacking It wasn t explained [...]
