First, I must mention the cover, that is what originally sold me on this book. It's so simple, yet breath taking. The color contrast...OMG! It just interprets the book so well. From the very beginning to the end, I was captivated. Rebecca Roanhorse does an amazing job transporting readers to the pre-Columbian Americas era. The representation in this book is so necessary. A cast containing POC who identify as gay, non-binary and everything in between? Uh yes please! A sea captain who has a deep connection with the sea that even some of her crew admire/fear her for. Sign me up! I am now a forever fan of Rebecca Roanhorse. The Between Earth and Sky trilogy shall defiantly have a place on my bookshelf. Can’t wait for the sequel!
