A strong book for the LGBT community, Shatter the Sky, by Rebecca Kim Wells, is a uniquely written dragon tale that follows the path of the underdog rather than the more traditional hero. Maren is so fiercely devoted to her mission that it seems like nothing can get in her way. The world building is captivating, and the story itself is truly magnificent. Getting to know the characters in this novel is truly a journey in and of itself, and it is equally as exciting as the adventure Maren embarks on to save her love. Not your average young adult fantasy novel – Shatter the Sky teaches readers just how powerful a girl can be when faced with an impossible situation. I highly recommend picking up a copy of this new fantasy, you will not be disappointed in Wells’ exceptional debut novel!
