Grey Skies is exceptional, original and unlike anything, I have read before book lovers and I loved the many themes and elements explored throughout the book! All the themes are explored by John Vallis wonderfully, and he does this by lacing these interesting themes throughout the text flawlessly and weaving them with the story. The result of this makes Grey Skies a highly addictive and fascinating read that is never once lackluster or predictable!

John Vallis is a phenomenal writer who knows how to grasp his reader’s attention from the first page. Vallis instead of writing long, drawn-out buildups which are commonly found in novels, decides to ditch this approach and thrust his reader into the heart of the story straight away so that the reader is instantly captivated and immersed. I personally love this approach, what is the point of having a long build-up with little excitement? This is only necessary if the author in question can’t develop the characters in the story quickly, but with Grey Skies, the reader will not encounter this issue because Vallis instantly develops his characters and makes the reader invest in not only them but also their journey.

John Vallis is not only a brilliant writer for his ability to captivate the reader’s attention straight away, but he is also an excellent author for his ability to lace exceptional twists and turns throughout his story that genuinely had me shocked at points! The combination of Vallis’s shocking twists and his explanatory powers will immerse the reader in the story and make them be able to visualize every detail, no matter how small. This writing approach is one of my favorites because it makes the reader feel included in the story and makes the reader feel as if they are in the same situation as the protagonist of the novel.

To conclude, Grey Skies is a thrilling, compelling and thought-provoking novel that will easily entertain readers for many days and nights and so I, of course, have to award this stellar gem of a book five stars!
