The Truth Beyond the Sky (Young Adult Sci-Fi/Fantasy)

The Truth Beyond the SkyThe Truth Beyond the Sky Synopsis: Twelve years after his mother’s disappearance, Zahn makes his annual hike up to Zikhara Peak to sleep above the clouds — only to be awoken by a monstrous roar.

He watches as an extraordinary object thunders down from the sky and impacts onto the silvery beach below, changing the course of his young life forever.

What he recovers is more than a mere meteorite, and Zahn is swept up into an adventure to the galactic core, encountering a stunning pilot, 5th-density creatures of light, and an ancient chthonic evil, bent on consuming every star in the galaxy by tearing the fabric of spacetime itself. Only the Tulari, a stone that can heal these fissures, offers any hope. Unfortunately, it’s been missing for aeons… – Goodreads


Truth Beyond the Sky Review

With a transportation system that ‘rings’ a bell within you if you watched Syfy at for any length of time, an unexpected and appreciated nod to Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and a story-line laid out in a way that screams out at you that the characters are about to embark up an epic quest, Andrew Crusoe’s debut novel, A Truth Beyond the Sky, is sure to appeal to many science fiction readers out there. 3 Star Rated Truth Beyond the Sky Review

I just wish I was one of them. There are times when you pick up a book, and the premise is interesting, the writing is good, and everything about the book screams “You should love this book”…but you don’t. Something about it just doesn’t resonate with you, and therefore it becomes a ‘meh’ sort of experience to read it. Such was my experience with The Truth Beyond the Sky.

I could recognize while I was reading it that Crusoe was a talented writer. He’s great with descriptions, his story is well-fleshed out, and the plot is something that’s interesting. I can’t point at any one thing, really, and say “this is why this book did not appeal to me”. Trust me, its as frustrating for me as a reader as it is for you reading this review.

I would still recommend readers give The Truth Beyond the Sky a try. Its not, by any stretch of the imagination, a bad book. Its just not a book that appealed to me.
