QUICK REVIEW: The Sky Is Dead by Sue Brown

The Sky Is Dead

The Sky Is Dead
by Sue Brown

The Blurb

Danny is young, gay, and homeless. He lives in the park, preferring to avoid attention, but when thugs confront a stranger, Danny rushes to his rescue. He and the would-be victim, Harry, form a cautious friendship that deepens months later, when Harry persuades Danny to visit his home. Daring to believe he has found happiness, Danny finds his world turned upside down yet again when tragedy strikes.

Until he runs out of options, Danny won’t trust anyone. Finally he has to accept the offer of a home, and Danny becomes David, but adjusting to a new life isn’t easy. When he meets the mysterious Jack, it stirs up feelings he thought were long gone. Can David dare to allow himself to love? Or will the truth bring his new world tumbling down around him?

What did I think?

Great plot, dialogue and ending.

I loved Danny for the way he survived on the streets and he never lost his humanity. There are a lot of realistic parts of this story which made me want to read it and I really appreciated the mix with a dose of unrealistic moments, like how he met Harry, Sylvia and Mary.

If this story would have been totally realistic, I reckon, I would have been gutted,  walking around with swollen eyes from crying. The  writer blended reality with HEA ending really well. The story gives a good insight towards homeless issues as well as the goodness and darkness in humanity. I loved the pace of the story too…

A great story that I would read it again. 4 stars.

Sue discovered M/M erotica at the time she woke up to find two men kissing on her favorite television series. The series was boring; the kissing was not.
