Rebel Skies by Ann Sei Lin is an incredible blend of exquisite storytelling and exciting action to create the fantasy world of your dreams. Few selected individuals are able to wield the power of paper-folding and creating everything from new limbs to arrows. For Kurara, a servant girl, that means embracing the power that she’s tried to erase for her whole life. When Himura comes to teach her to control her powers, it’s hard to resist a way out of the life she knows. Kurara uses these powers to hunt the famed “shikigami”, only to find out that there is no escape from these dangerous paper spirits.
This is a heart-racing, blood-pounding adventure that I would recommend to readers aged 12 and up as it can get intense at certain moments. It’s written with such passion and soul that I loved it. I would recommend this book to anyone who’s enjoyed Nevertell, Harry Potter or Starfell. 4.5/5 stars.
