Publisher’s Description: The final struggle against the Hellions has arrived. A trapped engineer and a desperate marauder scramble to fight an enemy with unspeakable power on its side. Time is running out, and one world will be destroyed…

After sacrificing herself to save the lives of her friends and family, Claire Abernathy struggles to outwit her Hellion captors. They torment and terrify her into working on a weapon with the sole purpose of obliterating the world, friends, and love she has struggled to save. If Claire has any chance of saving those she loves, she must delve deeper into the Hellion world, and witness nightmares she could never imagine.

In Westraven, Sawyer Kendric is desperate to find the woman he loves. To do so, he must finally embrace his family’s atrocious past and heal the wounds it has caused. He will be forced to make new allies, uncover secrets that change all he knows, and find the courage to lead a ragtag crew into the darkest, deadliest battle of their lives.

Claire and Sawyer fight to save their broken world in the final installment of the epic DARK SKY trilogy.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words…spoilers.  *BEWARE*

“If you take his life,” I said, my voice shaking, “I will do more than take yours.  By the time it’s over, there won’t be a scrap of you left.  You’ll have nothing.  No legacy.  In ten years, no one will ever know you existed.”

Obsidian Sky, suspense is thy middle name.   Holy crap, suspense and don’t forget to put the tissue box close by.  No, I’m not ashamed.  I cried.  The people I root for got hurt…a LOT.  (Spoiler here!) Vesper, the Hellion king, is not a gentle soul nor is he still in existence.  Mwuh ha ha!  Go Team Claire!!  Anyway, this is the last book of the series so there is no cliffhanger.  There is a happy ending and one huge surprise.  No sex but a lot of graphic violence.

I’m sad that this is the end.  I really liked the characters in this book.  The thing I appreciated in this book is that the narrative switched off between Claire and Sawyer so I got to hear what was going on in Sawyer’s brain too.  That was incredibly moving during the battle scene.

This was a page turner, as is all of Amy’s books in this series.  The fight for survival of the world’s inhabitants was kind of on the scary badge5v5side if you were to compare their world to ours.  One of the big surprises that caught me off guard (no spoiler here), was the fact that Sawyer revealed his age.  He is only 18 or 19 in these stories.  I did not see that coming.  He speaks and acts like a man that is much older and battle ridden.  Being 18 or 19 and having his world view really made me think about the whole apocalyptic spin.  I truly thought that Claire was 18 or 19 and Sawyer was at least 30.  Nope, not the case.

This is an incredible series that is alien invasion, post apocalyptic and steam punk all wrapped into one.  I really enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to what world evolves out of Amy Braun’s mind next.
