“We aren't trusted here - not because of who we are, but where we come from.”
― Marie Lu, Skyhunter


Skyhunter is a YA science fiction book written by the talented author Marie Lu. This story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, Mara. The main character, Talin, is a striker. A striker is the elite part of the military. Their job is to protect the last free nation in the world, Mara.


Friendship and family are important themes in this novel. In addition, this book shows how challenges like being mute and a refugee in the world doesn’t have to stop you from achieving your goals.


One goodreads reviewer stated that “this is the best book ML has written.” Find out for yourself! I rate this book 4.5/5 stars because I couldn’t put this book down! Marie Lu created some diverse and strong characters that were enjoyable to read about. And if you finish it, there is a 2nd book being released in September 2021. Skyhunter 2. So, what are you waiting for? Get to reading.
