Today I’m taking part in the blog tour for The Sky Weaver by Kristen Ciccarelli and I’ll be sharing my review with you all just a little further down this post!
About the author:
Kristen Ciccarelli hails from Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula where she grew up on her grandfather’s grape farm. She’s made her living as a baker, a bookseller, and a potter, but now writes books about bloodthirsty dragons, girls wielding really cool weapons, and the transformative power of stories.
About the book:
At the end of one world, there always lies another.
Safire, a soldier, knows her role in this world is to serve the King of Firgaard-helping to maintain the peace in her oft-troubled nation.
Eris, a deadly pirate, has no such conviction. Known as The Death Dancer for her ability to evade even the most determined of pursuers, she possesses a superhuman ability to move between worlds.
When one can roam from dimension to dimension, can one ever be home? Can love and loyalty truly exist?
Then Safire and Eris-sworn enemies-find themselves on a common mission: to find Asha, the last Namsara.
From the port city of Darmoor to the fabled faraway Sky Isles, their search and their stories become threaded ever more tightly together as they discover the uncertain fate they’re hurtling towards may just be a shared one. In this world, and the next.

The Sky Weaver is the third book in the Iskari series, a sort of standalone, but it takes place in the same world as the previous books. It focuses more on Safire, who we have met previously, and introduces Eris as another main character.
Eris is also known as the Death Dancer, and she has the ability to jump between worlds. When she encounters Safire, it sends in motion a chain of events that nobody is expecting.
I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, and The Sky Weaver is no different. I love the world-building that the author has done so far, but it is even more beautiful in this book.
Safire is a great character, and when she meets Eris they become a formidable pair. There is so much going on, and even more going against them in The Sky Weaver. I found I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough because I was dying to see what was going to happen.
There is an almost Norse Mythology-esque theme running through The Sky Weaver. It’s woven beautifully through the narrative, and the prose, especially when the reader learns about the original Sky Weaver.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was captivated by the story, the characters and their world. It’s an engaging and magical story, with real humanity at its core, loved it.
Highly recommended for sure!
