Skyhunter was one of my more memorable reads of 2020. First of all, without reading a word of the story one immediately notices that the cover is gorgeous (both the jacket and the inside cover). My favorite cover of all of Marie Lu’s works. I thought the sprayed edges on the hardback were cool too. 

The novel is set in a dystopian world, and Lu lives up to my expectations from previous reads. There is more of a science fiction aspect to this series than some of her other books, as the “Ghosts” factor heavily into the events of the novel. 

I really liked Talin and Red. Talin is our main character (and we see the events of the story from her point of view) so we get to know her fairly well. The mind-to-mind conversations were cool, and I feel like they allowed Talin and Red to connect on a level that her main characters from the other series can’t. It was cool to see the use of sign language in the book. I also really liked Adena and Jaran as secondary characters. 

I really enjoyed this read, and I’m looking forward to the second installment in the series so I can (hopefully) get some of my questions answered.
