Title: Amber Sky 
Author: Amy Braun 
Pages: 125
Publishing: Published October 4th 2016 by Amy Braun
ISBN: 9780993875892


Press-ganged into servitude by a ruthless band of marauders who survived the devastating Storm, Nash has grown tired of his career– the young, undefeated champion of the Stray Dog fighting pits. All he longs for is a place to live where his family is not his enemy. 

When his captain gives him an assignment to embed him deeper into the crew, Nash attempts to refuse, until the life of his friend is threatened. Determined to save her, Nash embarks on the mission to subjugate and control a supplier. But the supplier has other clients, one of which could be the son of the most feared pirate captain in all of Westraven. 

And if Nash plays his cards right, the key to his deeply desired freedom, if he can live with the consequences of his choice… 

Set two years before the events of CRIMSON SKY, this prequel novella tells the story of how Nash and Sawyer crossed paths– and fists. While best enjoyed before reading CRIMSON SKY, this bonus story can be read at any time or enjoyed as a standalone.


Amber Sky is a prequel novella for the first two books in The Dark Sky series. I have read and reviewed the first two books and absolutely loved them. I am still anxiously awaiting the third installment in the series, so when Amy asked if I wanted to read a novella, I was thrilled! 

I began reading the first page and was instantly reminded of why I loved this series so much. The world Braun created is rough, scary, and dangerous, but in that terrifying world lies some humans who just won't let anything get them down. Nash and Sawyer are such strong moral compasses, never straying from what they know is right. I loved getting to know these two characters in the first two books, but the way they are portrayed in Amber Sky makes me love them even more. 

Amber Sky is beautifully written with delicious detail and non-stop action from start to finish. Once again, Amy has created a chaotic world full of characters worth reading about. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the Sawyer and Nash and look forward to more novellas as well as the third book in the series. I would highly recommend this novella as well as the entire series. 

Rating 4/5
