My rating: ❤❤❤ of 5!
Summer Sky left on a really dark and heavy cliff-hanger. Luckily, I read these books years after the series finished, so I didn’t have to wait to find out what happens next. I was quick to pick up this second instalment in the Blue Phoenix series, as I was very eager to find out what would happen after the accusation bomb were dropped.
Falling Sky picks up four months later and Sky and Dylan has not been in touch since Dylan walked away and continued his tour. Now that the tour is ended he’s back home in England, once again he’s close to Sky, but as he hasn’t offered up any explanation, he feels further away than before. As Sky hasn’t heard anything she’s trying her best to move on, but her heart won’t let her. Dylan’s best friend can’t stand to see his suffering so she reaches out to Sky.
Dylan and Sky does end up giving their relationship another chance, but their hardships aren’t over. For every step forward, they seem to be forced back even further.
This book felt more realistic to me, so if I was rating it purely on the plot I would give it 4 but unfortunately, I just can’t cope with Sky, so it remains 3 ❤❤❤. That girl is somewhat of a ‘drama queen’. Everything in her life seems to be about her and no matter what the people around her do, it’s all too much for her. Sky’s self-importance very much reads like it’s her way or the highway – which became exasperating after a while.
I still love Lisa’s writing style, though, I did find myself being a bit bored at times as it felt like the story was dragging. At the same time, it also spent time setting up the other books for the other Blue Phoenix members. The next one in line is Unplugged, Liam’s book. But I can’t say I’m looking forward to it, as I don’t feel like I have any connection to him. I’ll probably give it a go, who knows, Lisa might surprise me again.
Either way, for now this is goodbye to Dylan and Sky.
