Sunday Street Team: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

I am super excited for this book! I am extremely lucky to bring you an interview from the author herself! Keep reading for the interview, information about the book and author, and a special giveaway!


1. If you could spend an afternoon with your characters, what would you do?

I would have them teach me to throw an axe.

2. What upcoming YA books are you excited for?

There are so many amazing books coming out this year but a few I’m super excited about are The Disasters, Ship It, and Valley Girls

3. What other characters from YA books would be friends with Eelyn?

I think she would really get along with Inej from Six of Crows. And I think that she would understand Lada from And I Darken in a way that few do.

4. If you could write a book with any other YA author, who would it be?

No one. Haha, I am way too much of a control freak!

5. What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?

I practice yoga, collect old books. I also love food and wine and being out in the wilderness.

6. Do you prefer HEAs (Happily Ever Afters) or open endings?

I love a mix of both, I think. Too much of one gets old.

7. What projects do you have in the works?

Right now I’m finished the companion novel to Sky in the Deep that is coming out in 2019!

8. What advice do you have for young writers? 

Read, read, read. And not just in the same genre. Read everything – even the newspaper. It will make you a way better writer and fill your head with inspiration that will never run dry.


Seventeen-year-old Eelyn’s world is war. Raised to fight alongside her Aska clansmen in a generations-old blood feud against the Riki, her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.

Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki if she wants to make it back to the fjord after the thaw. But when she begins to see herself in the people she’s been taught to hate, the world Eelyn once knew begins to crumble. And after the village is raided by a ruthless clan many believe to be a myth, Eelyn is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend who has tried more than once to kill her. Together, they must end the blood feud between their clans or watch their people be slaughtered.

A lush, Viking-age inspired fantasy about loyalty, forgiveness, and the definition of family.
