Title: Smoke Sky
Author: Amy Braun 
Pages: 146
Publishing: December 6th 2016 by Amy Braun1


To survive in a horrific world overseen by bloodthirsty monsters, young thief Gemma will do whatever she must to see another day. Even though that means working for a damaged man convinced to make her a permanent member of this thuggish family.

So when her employer tells her that he’ll release her from his clutches, Gemma is obviously skeptical. Especially since the job is easy enough– recruit the two marauders that the gang has been spying on to take her place. 

But as Gemma lies to Nash and Sawyer, she commits the greatest mistake a spy can make–– she begins to see them as friends, and perhaps more. Soon, she will have to choose: Sacrifice two strangers to ensure freedom from a brutal future, or risk her life to save them…

Set two years before the events of CRIMSON SKY, this prequel novella tells the story of how Gemma met Nash and Sawyer, and what prompted her to chose their safety over her own. While best enjoyed before reading CRIMSON SKY, this bonus story can be read at any time or enjoyed as a standalone.


Smoke Sky takes the reader back a little by exploring the character of Gemma and how she came to be a part of the Marauder's clan. While reading the other books in the Dark Sky series, I was always a little curious about Gemma's story and why how she became connected with Sawyer and Nash. 

Smoke Sky is action packed (no surprise there) and sheds light on Gemma's personality and why she's such a tough and strong character. Gemma has always been my favorite character and Smoke Sky gave me even more reason to keep that opinion going strong. 

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella and will be looking forward to Obsidian Sky that will be releasing in the next few months! Thank you Amy for sharing another wonderful book with me! 

Rating 4/5*
