MG Takes On Thursday - Sky Song

Greetings and salutations,

It's been a while since I've got involved with other people's tags, but the lovely Mary over at Book Craic came up with a really nice one called #MGTakesOnThursday. You can find out all about it here.

I joined in on Twitter last week,



but I thought this week I'd do it as a proper blog post.

So my choice for this #MGTakesOnThursday is Sky Song by Abi Elphinstone.

I've chosen a line from page 11

The Ice Queen often spoke like this - about cursed marks and dreadful Gods - but, even though Eska could recall nothing from her past about either, some deep-rooted things couldn't be erased, like knowing right from wrong and sensing truth from lies.

My three words to describe Sky Song are

Magical
Sinister
Inventive 
 

 and I've taken a picture of the cover


Sky Song was the first of Abi's books I read, and is still my favourite.

I love the blending of fairytale magic, and real, wild nature. The inventions in it are amazing, the places in Erkenwald, like Deeproots and the Nevercliffs feel so magical yet so real, and they are places I'd love to visit, and the characters are so strong. It's a beautiful story about love and friendship and overcoming evil together.
