Toward a Secret Sky by New York Times bestselling author Heather Maclean is a new breed of YA novel: an intelligent adventure-quest crossed with a sweeping, forbidden love story. A mix of reality and possibility, this fast-paced thriller will appeal to fans of Stephenie Meyer and Dan Brown as it leads the reader on a breathless flight through the highlands of Scotland, the secret city under London, and history itself.

Shortly after 17-year-old Maren Hamilton is orphaned and sent to live with grandparents she’s never met in Scotland, she receives an encrypted journal from her dead mother that makes her and everyone around her a target. It confirms that her parents were employed by a secret, international organization that’s now intent on recruiting her. As Maren works to unravel the clues left behind by her mother, a murderous madness sweeps through the local population, terrorizing her small town. Maren must decide if she’ll continue her parents’ fight or stay behind to save her friends.

With the help of Gavin, an otherworldly mercenary she’s not supposed to fall in love with, and Graham, a charming aristocrat who is entranced with her, Maren races against the clock and around the country from palatial estates with twisted labyrinths to famous cathedrals with booby-trapped subterranean crypts to stay ahead of the enemy and find a cure. Along the way, she discovers the great truth of love: that laying down your life for another isn’t as hard as watching them sacrifice everything for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Toward a Secret Sky by Heather Maclean i really didn't expect to like this book so much. it was such pleasant surprise. it does reflect twilight, though the puzzles & world building was a different concept compared to it. yes the romance reminded me too much of twilight especially in the end. but this was such an engrossing read. it seems that this is suppose to be a series & i can't wait to find out what happens next!

Editorial Reviews

Demons, Descriptions, and a Fabulous story await the reader of 'Toward a Secret Sky'! It all starts off with Maren moving to Scotland, which let me tell you with the craze that is Outlander I was very happy to have this setting again! Maren as a teenage almost adult character worked out well. she is your average 17 year old girl who is dealing with the death of her family. I think the author did very well with portraying her. The author also did a wonderful job with making the world of Maren come alive. With some of the best descriptions I've read I could picture every step of her journey.The story itself is not boring or slow at all! Even the beginning is fast paced. This was a non-stop action packed thriller!Top Pick Title - 5 stars
