Book Review - Flame


A Sky Chasers Novel 
Amy Kathleen Ryan

Publication:  January 7, 2014

In the thrilling conclusion to the Sky Chasers series Waverly, Kieran, and Seth struggle to survive on-board the New Horizon—and take down their enemies before it's too late.

Waverly and the other members of the Empyrean have scattered, and their home ship has been destroyed. Their mission to rescue their parents didn't go as planned, and now they're at an even greater disadvantage: trapped with their enemies on the New Horizon, trying to find a way to survive. Kieran has been pulled under Anne Mather’s wing, but is she really trying to make peace, or just using Kieran to build her own power? Meanwhile, Waverly is taken in by a mysterious old man who wants to help her bring Anne Mather down—but the more Waverly cooperates with him, the more dangerous her position is, and the more at odds with Kieran she becomes.

Seth's situation is even worse. After setting out from the Empyrean on his own, with only a vague strategy to guide him, he is a fugitive aboard the New Horizon. He's doing what he can to challenge the power of Anne Mather, but he's badly hurt, and getting sicker.

Will Seth ever see Waverly again? Will his health hold out long enough to help her topple their enemies? And will Waverly find a way to unite with her friends before they all fall? Nothing is sure and every moment is a risk in this explosive finale of the Sky Chasers series.


I was so excited to read this book when it came out! I found that it was extremely difficult for me to get into, whether it was because I was in good book shock from the last one that I read or that fact that it had been quite a while since the one before it had come out, I don't know. Probably a combination of both. 

I was originally going to give this book four stars because I was so disappointed that it hadn't fully captured my attention. Once it gets going though, my oh my, you will not want to put the book down. 

This book was a wonderful way to end the series! Some parts were super sad and I cried, and that's saying something because I typically don't cry over books. Then it came to the last chapter and I cried again when it was over because I was so happy for them and how it all turned out. 

All in all, wonderful book! This book definitely deserves more than the four stars I originally thought I would give it.
