The Dark Sky series comes to a close with Obsidian Sky, probably the darkest of the three books. It solidified, for me, that this is a decent series. Unique concept. Overall, fairly average in my book but not in the bad way. Braun ends with a bang this time around, leading to plenty of action moving the plot along.
When this all started, I wasn’t all too keen on Claire but she grew on me in the second book and was great this time around. I liked that she continued to hold her own and came out a strong heroine which she had the potential for in the previous books. It was nice to see her come fully into her own.
And thankfully Sawyer changed this time around too. I could stand his character (thankfully). I still don’t ship him with Claire but at least I didn’t hate him this time.
At the end of the day, Braun delivered on the world-building she set out with in Crimson Sky and put her characters through the gauntlet, going darker than ever before to create quite the emotional ride. Was I on that ride? Well, not entirely, but it was a fun ride for me, at least.
It’s weird. I’ve made it through this trilogy and don’t really have much to say. It was a fun read. I don’t think I’d re-read the series but I can’t say I wouldn’t recommend it. The Dark Sky series ends on an action-packed note
