Overview

Since the night of her seventeenth birthday, Skye has been torn between two opposites: light and dark, the Order and the Rebellion, Devin and Asher.

But her decision shocked both sides—because she chose neither.

With the help of her friends, Skye forges her own path, setting out to gather an uprising of Rogues. The treacherous and elusive half-angels may be the key to maintaining the balance of fate and free will. But completing the mission her parents left unfinished is more difficult—and dangerous—than she could have imagined. And doing so comes at a cost: her greatest love may now be a lethal enemy. Because it's not just the Order that sees Skye as a threat who must be eliminated. The Rebellion does, too. And both sides will do whatever it takes to win.

Dark days lie ahead, and if Skye is to survive, she'll need to rely on her extraordinary powers and the strength of her will. Because she has a future—and a love—that's worth fighting for.

The sweeping, darkly romantic story that began with A Beautiful Dark and gathered intensity in A Fractured Light comes to a thrilling conclusion in A Radiant Sky.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Praise for A Beautiful Dark:“First-time author Davies taps into the paranormal romance craze and gets many things right.”
School Library Journal
01/01/2014
Gr 8 Up—Faced with a choice between light and dark, the Order and the Rebellion, 17-year-old Skye, daughter of two fallen angels, chooses neither. Instead, she has decided that the only way to end the war between the two groups of angels is to forge a new path. This decision means giving up her boyfriend, Asher, whose loyalty lies with the Rebellion. It means being hunted by both factions, who will use all of their powers to either destroy her or control her Rogue powers for themselves. It means anyone who joins Skye-human, angel, or Rogue-is in danger. Skye's heart is broken and whispers in her mind tell her that she'll fail, but destiny can be rewritten and love could be the powerful force that wins the day. Davies packs a lot into this trilogy finale. Several new characters are introduced, old characters change loyalties, and secrets are finally revealed before the myriad threads come together in a satisfying ending. Readers who have enjoyed the earlier titles will devour this one and want more (the ending leaves that door open). Newcomers to the series can easily pick up A Radiant Sky as their introduction. Either way, this fast-paced, well-written novel should have no trouble attracting readers.—Heather Miller Cover, Homewood Public Library, AL
Kirkus Reviews
Romance trumps action even during the final battle to save the world in this trilogy closer. At 17, Skye learned she was the daughter of two angels, one a Guardian and one a Rebel, giving her supernatural powers beyond any ever before seen. Now in conflict with both factions, she and her friends unite to try to forge a new way and keep the universe in balance. Sadly, both of her heartthrobs, former Guardian Devin and Asher, now both in the Rebel camp, oppose her, even though they all still have to attend high school together. Skye tracks down two other Rogue angels, one with a cute little daughter named Earth, and the group sets out to prepare for the epic battle and for another important event: prom. When that heroic battle occurs, Davies keeps her focus more on romance than on the action, interrupting the battle numerous times for conversations explaining the participants' emotions, decisions and sudden romantic realizations; Asher reaches full Harlequin eloquence in his final speech to Skye. In the closing pages, Skye makes a final, major choice that indeed should fully end the trilogy. Skye, Devin and Asher come across as standard-issue romance heroes, but a few of the minor characters achieve some nice individuality, especially Earth. For romance fans only, who should enjoy it. (Paranormal romance. 12 & up)

    Good book *no spoilers*

    I love this series and i have read it about 5 times. This book is for people you loved the hush, hush saga and anyone who likes books about angel fiction. As regards to the end, i have a few problems. Why didnt she use her healing powers to save anyone who was hurt? Aside from that note, i think this is an amazing book and i recommend it to everyone.

    Radiant Sky is a fitting and good end to this series. I enjoyed

    Radiant Sky is a fitting and good end to this series. I enjoyed it and was taken on the ride right along with Skye.
    It was so hard to see Skye chose against the man she loves in order to do what is right, where her heart is leading her, and what her parents fought and sacrificed for. Her and Asher's hearts were so hurt and broken and that was emotional to read about. One thing though that I didn't understand is why Asher couldn't have chosen silver and to follow her. It was awesome though how there were steamy moments that sustained me and as usual made my heart beat faster. 
    I loved Earth, she was a great new character. She was fleshed out well and smart beyond her years. There was also an old character who turned out to be a unlikely alliance and I was surprised how much I grew to like her and what she contributed to the story. Cassie is a welcomed relief in the comedic area. Though she was serious when she needed to be, her loyalty and character shined through. 
    The ending wrapped everything up really well, though I didn't like who ended up dying. 




    Bottom Line: Good series ending.

    Three stars

    The beggining of this book started great but I'm so-so with the ending
    Skye choice I'm unhappy about and think the ending could have been written better after all of the last books left me wanting more. I have to say if there was going to be another book in the seris I wouldn't read it
