Review by Booklist Review

In the final title in Davies' popular Beautiful Dark series, Skye has refused to align herself with either the Order or the Rebellion, choosing instead to create a third army, the Uprising, in an attempt to save the world. In doing so, she has severed her ties with Asher, the Rebel angel whom she loves and turned a suspicious eye on her Guardian angel friend, Deven. But her high-school friends vow loyalty to Skye and her ideals, in spite of the danger her friendship demands. This title introduces a delightful young person with budding powers much like Skye's; follows the search for two Rogues who were friends of Skye's parents; and features a love-smitten Aunt Jo. Once again, Davies has melded the mundane and the paranormal into an exciting story of good and evil, order and chaos, and love and loss all in the span of Skye's senior year. When the characters finally line up to fight to keep the balance of the heavens in check, it will signal the ultimate battle for love, peace, and normal high-school adolescence.--Bradburn, Frances Copyright 2010 Booklist

Review by School Library Journal Review

Gr 8 Up-Faced with a choice between light and dark, the Order and the Rebellion, 17-year-old Skye, daughter of two fallen angels, chooses neither. Instead, she has decided that the only way to end the war between the two groups of angels is to forge a new path. This decision means giving up her boyfriend, Asher, whose loyalty lies with the Rebellion. It means being hunted by both factions, who will use all of their powers to either destroy her or control her Rogue powers for themselves. It means anyone who joins Skye-human, angel, or Rogue-is in danger. Skye's heart is broken and whispers in her mind tell her that she'll fail, but destiny can be rewritten and love could be the powerful force that wins the day. Davies packs a lot into this trilogy finale. Several new characters are introduced, old characters change loyalties, and secrets are finally revealed before the myriad threads come together in a satisfying ending. Readers who have enjoyed the earlier titles will devour this one and want more (the ending leaves that door open). Newcomers to the series can easily pick up A Radiant Sky as their introduction. Either way, this fast-paced, well-written novel should have no trouble attracting readers.-Heather Miller Cover, Homewood Public Library, AL (c) Copyright 2014.
