By Amanda Marin
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the book Flicker to Fire (Crimson Sash Book 3) by Amanda Marin. It is a story that pulled me in from the beginning and I was hooked. I have loved reading this series since the first book. I love the characters of Neve Hall and Micah Ward. They are both brave, strong, and have a fierce determination that the Nation’s human rights abuses do not go unpunished. Neve and Micah are characters that you can’t help but root for them to succeed against the Nation. They stand up for those who seek freedom and escape. They also have a love for one another that is undeniable. What does the future hold for Neve, Micah, and the New Republic? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me turning pages wondering what was going to happen next. It has both heartbreaking and heartwarming moments. I found my emotions going up and down the entire time that I was reading the book. I enjoyed reading about the additional characters that each have their part to play in the story. The author does a wonderful job of making both the storyline and the characters come alive. I felt like I was right there with them. Don’t miss out on an exciting and entertaining story that I didn’t want to put down until I had read the final page. I highly recommend reading it. It is the third book in a series and to fully understand all that transpires it is best to read the stories in order.

Flicker to Fire is the third book in the Crimson Sash series by Amanda Marin. It is an original futuristic, dystopian, YA fantasy- with sci-fi elements, action, adventure, drama, intrigue, friendship, romance, politics, violence, social justice messages, human rights issues, emotion, and lots more.
This book follows on from the first two, with a bridging storyline and many recurring characters- so I really recommend reading the first two books before starting on this one, to get the best possible reading experience of this story.
I have followed the series from the beginning and have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book to continue the adventure. So much has happened along the course of these three books- so I couldn’t help but get caught up in everything that transpired here and what the characters were going through. Amanda Marin certainly knows how to spin a riveting tale and held me enthralled the whole way through.
I don’t want to reveal any of the plot, past or present- just in case you haven’t read any of the books yet, as I really don’t want to give anything away that may spoil the story for you- except to say that if you love dystopian, YA, or future fantasy- then you probably won’t want to miss out on reading this book/series.
I wonder what Ms. Marin has planned for us next?

Thank you, Amanda Marin!

I enjoyed this book. This is the third book in this series which can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend reading all of them from the beginning. This is my favorite yet in this series. This is a well developed story that has characters that pulled me into the story right from the first chapter. This is an engaging story that I read in one sitting. I had no issues connecting to the characters as they brought the story to life. Neve and Micah are back in this story. Their story is full of hope and love. It does get a little dark in a few spots but the twists and turns kept me sitting on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what they would do next. There is a lot they go through in this story so I highly recommend reading it just to see. They are great characters that make a great story. This was a great rainy day read and I highly recommend it.

Beyond the broken wall, a fire has begun to burn …

Outside the refugee center in Kébec Village, the border wall separating the New Republic from the Nation continues to crumble. On one side, Neve Hall and Micah Ward are Sans Murs operatives, documenting cases of the Nation’s human rights violations as escapees arrive. On the other, Isla Pryce has begun a ruthless mission to purge the Nation of Sufferers who, like Micah, have been unfaithful to their vows.

Then she arrives: Blythe Thatcher, a mysterious young woman on the run from Isla’s vicious Inquisition Board. In Blythe, Neve sees a way to help Sans Murs further its cause—and rid the Nation of its callous Suffering system once and for all. But when the Nation uncovers their plan, the struggle that started as a flicker quickly turns to fire, and only Neve and Micah can extinguish the flame.

Sky to sea: Chrimson Sash book 2 Amanda Marin
“They thought their troubles were over … but they’ve only just begun.”

Wow, Such a great book that pulls you in and makes you fall in love with the wonderful Characters. I feel like readers of any age will love this book. This book is the second in the series sadly I didn’t read the first and now I feel I must read the first book as well. Such a great writing style and character building. Mrs. Marin has an amazing way of bringing you into the story as you read your emotions pour out of you as you read each page. I’m excited to read more from her!

Sky to Sea (Crimson Sash, #2)Sky to Sea by Amanda Marin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sky to Sea: Crimson Sash Book 2, by Amanda Marin was a very good read. It was reflective of our society at this time in our country and the different feelings and attitudes about immigration. I enjoy books that reflect on our present society it helps to understand or consider a perspective that you may not have considered before. And it’s just a good story. The relationship between Neve and Micah is fragile and strong at the same time. Their struggle to help each other in the best way that they know how is a wonderful story. This book is a great read all on its own but if you haven’t read the first in this series North to Nara: Crimson Sash Book 1, you should. The background story will double your reading pleasure for this one.

I remember when I read the first book in this series and the authors writing almost sang to me off the pages, so I have to admit I was really looking forward to reading the next book in the series and I wasn’t disappointed at all. Again the authors writing was such a pleasure to read, the storyline had a lovely flow to it. I love Neve and Micah, they are just such lovely and genuine characters and I enjoyed following their journey. The authors beautiful descriptive language made me feel like I was right there with the characters experiencing some of the scenery and things that they were. Dystopian reads aren’t usually my go to genre but I am really enjoying this series! Sky to Sea should be read following the first book North to Nara as it is a continuation of that story – both wonderful reads and I don’t think readers will be disappointed at all!!

Sky to Sea: Crimson Sash- Book 2 by Amanda Marin
4 of 5 Stars
Sky to Sea is book 2 in Marin’s ‘Crimson Sash’ series. It continues the story of Neve Hall and Micah Ward which began in the first book, ‘North to Nara’. It is set in a dystopian world with two waring factions the ‘New Republic’ and the ‘Nation’. Neve and Micah find themselves in a refugee shelter trying to convince the immigration officials that they are worthy of citizenship to the ‘New Republic’ but as a Sufferer, an empath Micah is wanted back by the ‘Nation’. Torn between the two places the couple find themselves in the middle of conflict and are kidnapped and held hostage, but underneath it all they just want to be together and find the freedom to love as promised by the New Republic. Sadly for the couple the myth and fantasy is not like the reality.
I loved Neve and Micah, I found the couple likeable, realistic and ‘normal’ in this dystopian world. I was cheering them on throughout the book and I really cared about their outcome.
This is a well written book with a solid storyline, great characters and it moves along at a fast pace. I was gripped from page one and found myself immersed in Marin’s dystopian world.
Although this is book 2 of a series, I read it as a stand-alone book and was able to enjoy it and understand the storyline, however I think if I had read book one, I would have had more of the characters backstory and their reasoning behind certain decisions they made. I am keen to read, ‘North to Nara’ now.

4-Stars

Sky to Sea (Crimson Sash Book 2) By Amanda Marin was an interesting and fascinating read. The author transports readers to another world. It was fascinating to me to read how the world was divided and the different types of governments that existed to rule. The Nation sounded like a cruel and terrifying place to live. I was shocked with the horrors Micah and Neve were forced to face before escaping. The story begins with them at a refugee camp trying to attain citizenship ship in the New Republic. This was definitely a book I don’t usually read and I enjoyed it.
