Teaser Tuesday (78): Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser is from Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon. I'm just going to say, if you loved Shadow and Bone or For Darkness Shows the Stars, then go out and purchase a copy of Take Back the Skies today! It's an incredible fantasy with such lovable characters, and the cutest little love connection between the main characters. Fox is so adorably protective, but embarrassed about his feelings at the same time. It was impossible not to fall for him!

Isn't blowing the whole place to kingdom come a bit... drastic?" Fox said, lips curled in a frown. "Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the destruction of government property, but not everyone in that building is government scum. There's cleaning staff and whatnot.

{Take Back the Skies, Chapter 9}

One thing my father taught me that I actually bothered to listen to; always know what those who work for you do with their free time, just in case they're using it to betray you."

Fox's eyebrows rose slowly.

"That's... really quite paranoid," he told her, and she nodded.

{Take Back the Skies, Chapter 10}

Synopsis of Take Back the Skies:

Catherine Hunter is the daughter of a senior government official on the island of Anglya. She’s one of the privileged – she has luxurious clothes, plenty to eat, and is protected from the Collections which have ravaged families throughout the land. But Catherine longs to escape the confines of her life, before her dad can marry her off to a government brat and trap her forever.

So Catherine becomes Cat, pretends to be a kid escaping the Collections, and stows away on the skyship Stormdancer. As they leave Anglya behind and brave the storms that fill the skies around the islands of Tellus, Cat’s world becomes more turbulent than she could ever have imagined, and dangerous secrets unravel her old life once and for all . . .
