Summary from Goodreads:
Press-ganged into servitude by a ruthless band of marauders who survived the devastating Storm, Nash has grown tired of his career– the young, undefeated champion of the Stray Dog fighting pits. All he longs for is a place to live where his family is not his enemy.

When his captain gives him an assignment to embed him deeper into the crew, Nash attempts to refuse, until the life of his friend is threatened. Determined to save her, Nash embarks on the mission to subjugate and control a supplier. But the supplier has other clients, one of which could be the son of the most feared pirate captain in all of Westraven.

And if Nash plays his cards right, the key to his deeply desired freedom, if he can live with the consequences of his choice…

Set two years before the events of CRIMSON SKY, this prequel novella tells the story of how Nash and Sawyer crossed paths– and fists. While best enjoyed before reading CRIMSON SKY, this bonus story can be read at any time or enjoyed as a standalone.



Review:
I've recently had the chance to get to know this amazing author and read her novella, Amber Sky, a prequel to her Dark Sky series. Although, I haven't been able to read the rest of the series yet, this prequel can be read on its own or anytime during the series.

It starts off following Nash, who has had a tragic life. His whole family has been killed by the Hellions and he's been forced to fight in the crater for the enjoyment of the Stray Dogs. When an unfortunate relative of two ruthless pirates (Sawyer) is captured by the Stray Dogs, Nash uses it as an opportunity to escape. A bond of trust is formed by the two main characters through struggle and near death experiences. I can't wait to see what these two have in store for me in the next installment.

 I absolutely loved the characters in this book. It kept me on edge the whole time and although it was a quick read, I got the sense of fulfillment when the book ended. Amy Braun has a beautiful way of creating a colorful world. One where there is struggle but also hope. I'm going to give this read five stars.


I received this book by the author for an honest review.
