The sky people is a short and fast paced story with only 170 (ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY) pages. It was written by the 1 international bestselling author, Terry Goodkind and published under HEAD OF ZEUS (HOZ) an award winning independent publisher of all genres. The story also includes fairly weird names that are not common in our modern society.
Setting of the sky people:
This story was based in the less modernized and developed societies of The Sun People and The Wolf People.
The sky people tells the tale of one Raging River; yes, that is her real name and her fight for her people and her beloved sister.. It all begins when her sister is snatched by the wicked prince of the of the infamous Wolf People during one of their hunting trips.
Contrary to what the warriors think, Raging River who is also the priestess of her people, goes against a very sacred law and murders the Prince with one accurate shot from her bow. She is chased back to her village without her young sister but vows to get her back.
She informs the chief, who also happens to be her father, that she broke the sacred law, NEVER KILL, EVEN IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT, set some deities called The Sky People. Obviously, her people were troubled not just because she trampled upon a law set thousands of years before her but because they would soon be attacked and they can’t fight back.
Being a good priestess with the safety of her people and beloved sister in mind, she makes the inevitable journey to a revered mountain to seek for none other than THE SKY PEOPLE.

The book was quite good, I didn’t have a hard time reading so that is great. It was simple to read and understand and the plot was generally interesting.
The book was good but it wasn’t “I WANT TO READ IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN GOOD.” To be honest, I didn’t really enjoy it mainly because some of the sentences were too long. Some sentences could be cut short and made less bulky but maybe this was just to increase the size of the book.
Secondly, it was really predictable and sometimes cheesy. I could literally tell what was going to happen the next moment making the story feel really basic to me. The plot was good and I feel He could have done more justice to such a great story line.
SUITABLE AGE GROUPS:
This story can be read by everyone even babies. There were no sex scenes or violence in it.
Considering how short the story was, you won’t spend much more than three days reading this book even f you are a very slow reader.
With whatever I have said above, I think it is only right to rate this book a FIVE out of TEN  . There are no visible grammatical or spelling mistakes and even if there are, it doesn’t make the story confusing at all.
