When seventeen-year-old Skylar escapes the time-bending Enforcers, who secretly control Earth, her troubles have just begun. She and her friend Win take refuge on Win’s home space station with his fellow rebels, but the fate of Sklyar’s planet still spins out of her control.
To avoid detection, Skylar poses as the Earthling “pet” of Win’s rival, an arrogant boy named Jule. Homesick and faced with a cool reception from the other rebels, she throws herself into the group’s mission: assembling a weapon to disable Earth’s restrictive time field. Gradually, Skylar’s skill for detail gains respect—even from Jule, who is more vulnerable than he lets on.
Yet challenges spring from every side. Not only must Sky navigate the muddy waters of romance, but suspicions of betrayal grow among the rebels as their work narrowly misses sabotage.
In the latest in Megan Crewe’s Earth & Sky series, can Skylar expose the traitor before time runs out and Earth is destroyed?

A few definite facts: she lives with her husband, son, and three cats in Toronto, Canada (and does on occasion say “eh”); she tutors children and teens with special needs; and she can’t look at the night sky without speculating about who else might be out there.

The Clouded Sky by Megan Crewe After all she risked trying to find the parts and pieces of the machine that will destroy the time field that is encompassing the Earth. Sky has to wait and see if seventeen years in the future did her gamble pay off. Win returns to ask her if she is willing to really help his group of radicals safe the Earth. Not only will she see where these time traveling aliens come from but the world they want to save. With all the risks she is taking, can she be prepared to live face to face with the alien people who have cause so many problems to her personally, and to her planet. The dynamic and scope of the problem is not simply placed upon the page. Nor is the solution or resolution of the problem have a clear and clean cut ending but this second book of Megan Crewe's Earth and Sky series is amazing. The entirely new world and people that she creates in this story is amazing, her writing brings the reader to believe that this world exists, and the reader wonders wither this is why the world is the way it is. The ability to suspend disbelief is a Hallmark of a great author Mrs Crewe will continue to bring young readers to look at the world through different eyes.
ARC kindly provided by Amazon Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Review ‘The Clouded Sky’ was a major improvement on its predecessor, ‘Earth and Sky’, and was an awesome read that I greatly enjoyed. It twisted love, science and betrayal into one big heap until you didn’t know where one started and the other began. My firs thoughts about this novel were: 1) I was slightly reluctant to pick it up STRAIGHT AWAY after reading the first one. 2) It would probably be slightly disappointing like ‘Earth and Sky’; in other words a three star. …But I was wrong. ‘Clouded Sky’ was heaps better than the first novel and I instantly got into the rhythm of things, such as what was happening. It just seemed to flow better than the last novel. And the something amazing happened: I really started to enjoy and look forward to reading this novel about a quarter – maybe less – of the way through the book. We REALLY get to learn more about specific characters which were only given a minor role or cursory glance in the last book. This novel was also a lot more interesting and INTRIGUING because we get to learn more about Kemya, its culture and its people. I was always curious about the Kemyates in the first novel but we readers were never really given much info about them. So when Skylar gets to visit them…I obviously got EXCITED! Thankfully, another plus to this novel was that it didn’t suffer from second-book syndrome like most books do in a series. The author and novel actually improved! There was lots of anticipation, drama and mystery which were pumped up. I read this novel in UNDER 3 DAYS! This is quite quick for me, what with my busy life an all since I NEVER get enough time to read. The cover, like the first ‘Earth and Sky’s, is beautiful and gorgeous and extremely attractive and eye-catching. But...it disappointed me as it didn't exactly give what it showed. I learned my lesson yet again, don't judge a book by its cover… One thing that I SURPRISINGLY didn't mind but would have been put off of is the emerging love triangle that started to happen between Jule, Win and Skylar. (Please don’t killer for spoiling that, we ALL knew it was going to happen as soon as we read the blurb.) This is a warning to those who hate or dislike clichés or love triangles because I know that ever since Twilight (at least for me) I've been detesting them. But then later on in the book - to my entire and utter relief - *SPOILER ALERT* the love triangle ends when Skylar says she no longer has those type of feelings for Win. *SPOILER ENDS* ...read more at https://staceykym.wordpress.com/2015/11/24/the-clouded-sky-earth-sky-2-by-megan-crewe/ ...
This wasn't quite as action packed as the first book, but I still found it very interesting! It's a lot more about uncovering the mysteries behind those who are against those on Earth and who could be sabotaging the groups mission. This book mainly takes place on Kemya, that really added an interesting element to the story, but with how superior the Kemyanites feel they are, they do have a lot of similar Earthling problems, so it wasn't too much different from Earth in that respect, but all the cool tech was fun. Skylar has definitely grown on me a lot more since the first book, she seems more confident, and I liked how she took initiative to figure things out and learn for herself. I will say that the characters still felt a bit muted to me, and Skylar was the only one I actually felt growing. Win and Jule were growing on me though, and I look forward to seeing their stories evolve in the next book. The story did move a bit slowly, and any scene with Thlo was annoying, and some of the planning sessions were tedious, but the addition of the sort of space battle was lots of fun. This is a great series so far, and I am really looking forward to the next book in the series!
MY THOUGHTS I loved the first book in this series, so I was excited to read this book! This book was full of surprises and it was absolutely fantastic! Aliens have been secretly messing with Earth's time field. Skylar, Win, and the rebels have discovered the weapon that will free the Earth and are now heading back to the space station that this race calls home. But Skylar is an Earthling and can't be fully allowed on the station, unless she pretends to be an Earthling "pet". The rebels continue to meet, but they face betrayal and Skylar is determined to find the spy. I was a bit disappointed at first by the fact that there wasn't really any time travel, but I actually think I like this more than the first book! I feel like I'm getting a better understanding on these people, as horrendous they are towards Earthlings. It was interesting getting this look into things and even though I ended up with more questions, I felt like things got clearer. There is a new unexpected romance in this book and, oddly enough I was shipping it. I actually really liked this. It also didn't distract from the plot at all, so that's a plus! This book has a lot of just planning and plotting, so it may have some middle-book syndrome, but it wasn't dull or boring. The spend of this book really picks up in the end, so much that I'm still reeling from it. It was really intense and, yes, there was a cliffhanger. IN CONCLUSION This is such a great sci-fi series and this was a great sequel! I admit, I actually like it more than book one! I felt like I learned so much more of the world and characters, and I loved the unexpected romance. There is a cliffhanger that my brain still can't comprehend, so you may want to wait on this one, but I definitely recommend this series!
