Review of Sky by R. E. Palmer
A witty coming-of-age novel couched in science fiction paranormal fantasy, “Sky” revolves around an adolescent young man in London, Tomas; and the girl who is literally the “girl of his dreams.” He early on named her “Sky,” although her actual name is Carla-and she is now a University student in Australia. In real life terms, they’ve never met, but they are together nearly every night for years, in dreams. Tomas also has a new dream companion, one who takes him to previously unseen worlds, entices him with the beauty of their creations—and then offers to take him to such a world. In reality, the entity now appearing to him, Selene, has an agenda definitely her own; and it is not to save Tomas’ world, or Tomas, or his beloved dream girl Sky.
I found it easy to suspend my disbelief and treat this story as if the events (far-fetched as many of them are) were, or could be, real. I fully entered into the psyches of Tomas and Carla, as well as Shelley, a journalist from Sydney who is put on to Carla’s case when the girl seems to fully recover from an inexplicable coma—yet those who come into contact with her die.
I reviewed a complimentary e-book copy provided in return for my fair and impartial review.
