Reviewing eARC from Netgalley
The rebels have been disbanded, their plans ruined. Betrayed by those she trusted most, Skylar finds herself herded, along with a small group of Earthlings, into a living museum—a human zoo—on the Kemyates’ space station, subject to her captors’ every whim. Any move Skylar makes could result in the extinction of her people—but giving in means losing any hope of freedom.
Meanwhile, Win returns home and evades punishment by pretending to be loyal to Kemya. But he can’t bear knowing that Skylar is imprisoned or watch his fellow Kemyates swallow the Council’s lies about Earth. He must bring the truth to the Kemyate public and see the Earthlings freed—even if it means openly challenging his world’s rulers.
In this final book of the action-packed Earth & Sky trilogy, neither Skylar nor Win knows they are about to uncover an even deeper conspiracy—one that could push the future they’re fighting for completely out of reach.
A Sky Unbroken by Megan Crewe is the conclusion to the The Earth & Sky Trilogy. I can honestly say I was quite pleased ☺️ **Please Note that if you haven’t read the previous series there are minor unavoidable spoilers ahead** I placed the recap of book two in spoiler tags for you, read at your own risk!

The rebels are interrogated and released on good faith while Sky receives an implant and is placed in a new Earth Studies exhibit. « Hide Spoiler
Sky is one of those characters that I don’t really know how I feel about. Her transformation from the first book to the last is almost a complete 180. She started the series broken and she ends the series a strong, brave young woman. She fights for her friends and her family. She will not be something to throw away by the Kemyates but a force to be reckoned with.
And Win ? I love that the author decided to write in his POV too. We didn’t get much of Win in The Clouded Sky but he is a central character during the last book. The chapters alternate POV between him and Sky. I liked Win from the first book and I still do. He’s kind, passionate, and quirky. These quirks of his are endearing and humanize him. Like Sky, his character has also gone through a major shift. He started the series as an explorer, trying to prove himself to the rebels. Now he takes a leader role, holds fast to his beliefs, and the passion he had he channels into action. I could just kiss him!
During the last book, the author set Sky up in a bit of a love triangle. Thankfully that is resolved during this book fairly early and I think you’ll be happy with the results. I know I was!
The plot focuses on a couple of things but to avoid spoilers I’ll be brief ? The main plot (and series arc) has focused on the Kemyates view of Earthlings. Sky with Win and the rebels set out to change that view. Their goal is unity, I mean they are all humans so why not?! There’s a ton of actions, plotting, suspense and of course a few surprises. I really couldn’t sit the book down!
Overall A Sky Unbroken is a fantastic conclusion to the series AND the ending is left open so maybe we’ll hear more from these characters(?). One can only hope ☺️ If you enjoy young adult, fantasy, and science fiction, than this book is for you…just make sure you read the whole series!
