Micah character is very well written. Alot of the information about the setting in which they are in are done in a large section of text. Neve is a very caring person and adores Micah. This has a very interesting story line but can take some time to get into. Once you get going it’s a very heartfelt story that reaches home.
Sky to Sea by Amanda Marin is the is the second book in the Crimson Sash series. This series does need to be read in order to fully understand what is happening.
It had been a while since I had read book one but I found it really easy to pick up from where it left off. I soon found myself immersed back into the characters and their stories.
This book was well paced and exciting. You really have to feel for Neve and Micah. They really thought they had found the place for them to be safe and happy and instead they find themselves mixed up in more turmoil.
The author has done a great job with the continuation of this series and I can wait to see what comes next.
Sky to Sea: Crimson Sash- Book 2 by Amanda Marin is a YA dystopian romance that is filled with suspense and action, fear and longing, love and suffering. Amanda paints a vivid and clever picture of the world she has created and her character building is spot on.
Neve and Micah are learning to live a new life after escaping from the Nation. They build their lives on the hope that they will be given refugee status and are doing everything they can to make that happen. But they continue to live with the horrors and the pain and suffering they were dealt before reaching New Republic and now must seek help.
Unfortunately life is never that easy and they find themselves in danger of once again being in the clutches of the Nation.
I look forward to the next book in the series.

Sky to Sea (Crimson Sash Book 2)
By Amanda Marin
5 out of 5 stars
The story Sky to Sea (Crimson Sash Book 2) by Amanda Marin is a wonderful book that I loved reading. It is the second book in a series, and I enjoyed it just as much as the first one. It pulled me in from the beginning and I found myself lost in the story. I loved reading about Neve Hall and Micah Ward. Neve is a young woman who is intelligent, strong, and in love with Micah. Micah is a young man who has survived a lot. He is haunted by the past. When he and Neve find themselves in the New Republic, they believe that they will be safe in a land that will be wonderful to live in. What they find is different than they imagine. They find themselves having to prove that they are worthy of citizenship. Not only that they find themselves in the middle of things when tensions rise between the Republic and the Nation. What will happen to them when they are kidnapped by a group of radicals? What does the future hold for Neve and Micah? Read this book to find out. I loved Neve and Micah in the first book and loved reading about them again in the second one. I can’t help but root for them to find happiness. This book had my emotions going up and down the entire time I was reading it. The author does a wonderful job in world-building and I felt like I was right there with Micah and Neve. There are other characters that I enjoyed reading about. Some of them are helpful to Micah and Neve, others seem to have their own agenda. This is a series that I would read in order so that you fully understand the storyline. This is a book and series I would recommend reading.
Sky to Sea is the second book in the Crimson Sash Series by Amanda Marin. It is YA fantasy, with dystopian elements, romance, sci-fi, action, adventure, and drama.
We met Neve Hall and Micah Ward in book one. We re-join them as their story continues. After the events in book one, Micah and Neve really had all their hopes of a happy new beginning pinned on the New Republic. But you know what they say about best laid plans. Tensions between the Republic and Nation rise, which results in Micah and Neve finding themselves right in the middle of it all. Tensions mount, while being torn between the two nations. And expected, Ms. Marin puts them to the test. What ensues is well worth the read.
This was a great continuation to the storyline, and I found it to be just as intriguing as the first book. Another beautiful cover which attracted me even before I realised what the book was. Looking forward to reading book #3.
Thank you, Ms. Marin!

This is the second book in this series, I highly suggest reading this series in order to help enrich your enjoyment. I enjoyed this book as much as the first one. In this installment we get to see Neve and Micah again but one is kidnapped and the center of conflict. San Murs has set terms but the Nation only wants one thing. The twists and turns had me turning pages fast as well as sitting on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what will happen next. I highly recommend reading this book to see what happens to Neve and Micah next.

For Neve Hall and Micah Ward, the New Republic has always represented more than its legends of snowflakes and butterflies. It has also meant hope—and the freedom to love. But reality differs from their dreams. Living in a shelter for refugees, the pair must convince their immigration case manager that they are worthy of citizenship. Failure means deportation back to the Nation—and their deaths.
But assimilating isn’t easy—especially when tensions between the Republic and Nation flare. Before long, Neve and Micah find themselves at the epicenter of the conflict, kidnapped and held hostage by Sans Murs, a group of radicals who won’t surrender until the Nation meets their demands. Sans Murs has named its terms, but the Nation has one of its own: Micah’s return. Torn between two worlds, are they fated to unravel?

When Amanda was a child, her father traveled frequently for business, always bringing her back a book as a present. Whether she was getting lost in the pages of a tale about far-away knights, girls with supernatural powers, or kindly giants, she was quickly hooked on stories.
Over the years, Amanda has followed her own yellow brick road of reading and writing, and although her adventures haven’t involved sword fights or saving the planet from certain annihilation, they have involved jobs in scholarly publishing and marketing, a modest amount of travel, and a lifelong love of novels.
Amanda holds degrees in English from Salve Regina University and Boston College. Her favorite things include Starbucks lattes, lazy summer afternoons at the beach, and books with characters that make you go “awww.” She lives in New Hampshire with her family and furbaby, Snickers the Poodle.
ETERNITY is is the final book in the series and I think it should be read in order as each book picks up where the last one ended.
The entire Captivity Series flows quickly from the beginning to end.
It moves quickly with the continuing threads being highlighted through each. The series is well plotted and entertaining.
I recommend this series
Eternity is the third and concluding instalment in the Captivity series by Molly Zenk and Sarah Biglow. It is a really well developed, imaginative, and intriguing paranormal romance/urban fantasy- with shapeshifters, action, adventure, danger, drama, some dystopian elements, choices, and more obstacles.
I really recommend reading the first two books before starting on this one, because the story continues from one book into the next- so you really need to know all the important information, character details, and storyline that’s contained in the first two instalments- in order to fully appreciated this book.
It isn’t a very long book, which makes this a very quick and easy read. But even though the books are short, there is quite a lot that happens in the small space- lots of revelations are made, with action packed adventure, and our characters go through a lot in the process.
The story picks up where book two left off. Finding Sanctuary should have been the end of their saga- but our characters soon learn that there is a new threat which places ALL shifters in danger. They are once more drawn into a life and death situation. This high stakes final show down kept me avidly reading to discover how everything plays out in the end. Their relationships, and skills, are really put to the test- with a lot riding on the outcome. Will they win out in the end? And if so, at what cost?
This was a superb ending to the series! Looking forward to seeing what these two talented authors do next!
Thank you, Ms. Zenk and Ms. Biglow!
