Finding Sky by Joss Stirling book review



You have half our gifts, I have the other . . . When English girl Sky, catches a glimpse of bad boy Zed in her new American high school, she can’t get him out of her head. He talks to her with his thoughts. He reads her mind. He is the boy she will love for ever. Dark shadows stalk her past but a new evil threatens her future. Sky must face the dark even if it means losing her heart.


Anyway this book follows Sky, a girl who has a deeply scarring past and a memory that wants to forget it all. She doesn’t know her real name so when she’s adopted by Sally and Simon Bright she picks the name Sky.

She’s been living with them for 6 years and when they get the opportunity to move to Colorado (her parents are artists and they go where the work is needed) they take the chance.

While there Sky makes some new friends and manages to snag the attention of Wrickenridge’s local bad boy Zed Benedict.

Its not long however until they both realise that their feelings for each other run deeper and when the truth finally comes out. It’s definetely a shock for Sky.

When she’s kidnapped by The Kelly’s, only Zed and his family can save her.

But will Sky finally come to understand what she is?
Will her past come to haunt her?
And will she finally accept Zed as her Soulfinder?






I picked this book up as the cover stood out to me. Its such a simplistic cover design but one that instantly draws your attention. And to be honest, the blurb drew me in too, espsically this line:
You have half our gifts, I have the other . . .


So I had to buy it and I am so so so glad I did.

I’d never heard much about this book before but as soon as I opened the first page I was drawn in.

What Sky had been through interested me, and through some flashbacks, you got to see why she is like she is.

Sky won’t let anyone love her and is shocked when they do. So when she attracts the attention of local bad boy, motorbike driving, Zed… well its a bit of a shock becasue there is something about him that draws her in and she can’t help but be charmed by his soft side…

And why is that?

Because they are each others Soulfinders and together they are more powerful then they are seperate. With Zed being the youngest of seven brothers (did I forget to mention that?! My bad… YES THERE ARE MORE OF THEM!) its a shock that he’s managed to find his so early.

And then there’s the bad guys; The Kelly’s.

Who the Benedict clan helped to put two of the family members behind bars and when they find out that Sky is apart of the circle now they kidnap her in the attempt to get back at the Benedicts and Zed in particular.

So then comes a series of mind blowing scenes, those of which leave you biting your nails.

Everything about this book was brilliant and ZED… HOLY HELL!! TO ALL THAT HIS HOLY THAT GUY IS HOT!




He is ultimate boyfriend material. He may come across as an arrogant badass with no manners but yet when he finds Sky she anchors him into this perfect specimen. He’s compassionate and loving and at the same time still manages to keep his protective streak.

And Sky?

She’s awesome! She may come across as a damsel in distress but she’s far from it. When she starts believing in everything she becomes an unstopaable force whose determined to protect her family and friends and Zed from harm.

And whats better is that I found out that there are two more books in the series about two of the other brothers so WOOHOO!! They will soon be in my hand thanks to Amazon!

But seriosuly guys READ THIS BOOK! You will not be disappointed and Sky’s past is upsetting. Its a book that’s hard to put down and it easily draws you in to the mysteries of Wrickenridge and all its inhabitants.

Oh and also Sky’s friends, Tina, Zoe and Nelson are also brilliant! They are her team of superheroes!

And the Benedict clan… Phew! Make sure you have a fan handy when reading it!

a definite 5 out of 5 stars!
