First off, I would like to say that this book got me out of my ever-loving reading slump.
Second off, I cannot believe how mind blown I was when I was reading and when I finished reading it.
Third off, I think this novel needs more exposure.
Now, let’s move on to my review of this! 😀
The Sky Drifter is this academy where the best students of every kind of creature in the universe are studying. The setting build up is just so good that it made me want to go there and study! I think if I study there, I would not be always saying that I am stu-DYING. I mean seriously, that academy is such a wow. It’s an ultimate dream school with the ultimate dream dormitories and dream cafeteria. High technology at its finest.
Then there’s Seven. He’s my new book boyfriend. Here’s why: He is just a simple (cute) guy, but he is so good in Sphere (a sports) and in Strategy. Who would not like a guy who is good both at sports and strategy?
At first, I thought that the story was slow-paced and just normal, but then the lady wearing a red coat came and made everything mind-blowing! It’s like I experienced what Seven experienced. Normal life at first, then confusing and so fast-paced the next. It was one hell of an adventure. Everything was just unexpected and heartbreaking and I love it.
The Sky Drifter is a roller coaster read. Starts slowly, lures you in, then BAM! You’re caught off guard. It also seems like the next Harry Potter to me. 😉
I highly recommend this to those who love science fiction, to those who want something new and crazy and for fans of mind blowing novels.
