      I received a free digital copy of this book from the author.I have a spoiler free video review of this book, which you can watch here: youtube/watch?v=HdWR5This is a YA novel that has a unique crossover with Ancient Greek mythology to give it a fantasy feel in places. Most of the story is told from the main characters point of view, whose name is Sylvia, though we do get a few other perspectives for occasional chapters. Sylvia is a teenage girl whose mother died several years ago, and so she now [...]

      For you to understand why I’m giving this a 5*, I have to preface my review with how sick and tired I am of YA love triangles and Twilight-y plots and bs rehashed to infinity and beyond. This book was SUCH a refreshing read from start to finish! As a fan of Greek mythology since I was a child, it was a true pleasure to see one of the lesser known stories - of the Muses - incorporated into a beautiful, entrancing read! It was an even bigger surprise to see their stories depicted correctly yet w [...]

      I enjoyed this book and it reminded a little of Twilight and Harry Potter. I love both series so this book was very good for me. I enjoyed it! The book kept reading all the way thru. I think this book is for as Young Adult audience but I enjoyed it and I am not young adult any longer. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*

      review to come

    • Emily says:

      Really enjoyed this! I'm not much into YA anymore but this surprised me! It was like Percy Jackson & the Olympians and The Mortal Instruments had a baby and produced We Own the Sky! I loved looking up all the songs and bands that were mentioned throughout the book, and have now been introduced to so much new music! I'm really proud of Sara and can't wait for the next book to come out!

      We Own the Sky, by Sara Crawford, is a young adult romance inspired by music and the Greek Muses. This blending of art & mythology immediately piqued my interest, even though I am not an oft reader of teen romance. I am, however, both a writer & singer that appreciates stories that celebrate music and creativity. And this story certainly does that. Protagonist Sylvia is a teen for whom music is a both a passion and a refuge. She lives with her father, a talented musician himself, who is [...]

    • Kales says:

      The concept of this book was the only thing I enjoyed. I enjoyed the exploration of Muses, Greek Mythology and what it means to make art. I agree with the message of the book that it is important and vital to humanity and to our individual souls. However you make and discover your art is a beautiful thing.That being said, I did not like the remainder of the book. I thought the story was weak and VERY Twilight. Like almost spot on. Supernatural guy falls for a supernatural girl, leaves girl for h [...]

      I am new to Sara's writing style, I love the cover, totally pulled me in right off. I was sent a copy from the author for a honest review, I think it needs to be said if you have issues with content about suicide, depression, u should know there are bits in this read about those health conditions. I've never had an issue reading about those sort of thoughts, not that I would want to read them daily. Sylvia, you just feel for 'cause of her upbringing dealing with her mother overdose, her father a [...]

    • Goth Gone Grey says:

      A love story about music, and aaaah! Cliffhanger! I'm typing this fast and furious on my Kindle so I can download the next book and start reading *right now.* Thank heavens - and the Muses, and the author while we're at it - that it's written and waiting. This book is a love song, in free verse, to art in all forms but with a strong lean and extra affection towards music. Song and artist references are scattered through the text like gleeful confetti, some real and some only alive within the nar [...]

      I found this book to be a very enjoyable and unique read! Sara Crawford took aspects of ancient Greece and present day to create a musician's dream story! Would highly recommend to any music lovers (especially alternative), and any greek geeks!*Review for this novel will be published on my blog on the books release date: August 15, 2017*

    • Natalie says:

      thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book to review :)I liked the story and some of the characters. I just wish there was more showing as opposed to telling, and I wish Sylvia would have brought us into her head more, explaining everything that would happen inside her when she made music with Vincent. I think I would have liked their relationship more if I got more feelings about it from her.The story was definitely intriguing, and there we parts of the story where the writing f [...]

      I have a lot of thought so strap yourselves in, its a long one. Like really long. Like actually.**I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review**Objectively this books is probably closer to a 3.5 but I rounded it up because I did enjoy this book greatly. This books was unlike anything I usually choose to read but especially for the first half of the book I found myself weirdly obsessed with this story. It was very likable and the plot flowed easily. This was very much a s [...]

    • Bonnie Keck says:

      Kindle Unlimited, saw the review and if it the story had given off twilight vibes to me it would not have gotten a 4 but much much worse, and as far as no teen angst uh hello yeah there was which is why toward the end it got dropped from a 5 by the very end ended up a 2. The parts here and there dragging wouldn't have done that and since there is no 1/2 would have otherwise left it at the 5, but just too much of the angst and the dragging parts and huh moments such as when the one guy asked th [...]

      I received a complimentary copy of this book for free to give a voluntary honest review. This review contains only my own thoughts and opinions of this book. As much as I am grateful for this opportunity I gotta say, this book did not do it for me. At. All.We Own the Sky is basically a huge insult to any artist out there. I mean, sure. The idea behind the whole Muses theme is interesting and different and usually I’m all for originality and uniqueness. However, this book takes the word “tale [...]

      *Content/Trigger Warnings: suicidal thoughts/attempts, imbalanced power dynamic in a romantic relationship*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.In We Own the Sky, the first book in The Muse Chronicles, we meet sixteen-year-old Sylvia. For her entire life, she’s lived through music, an attribute passed down from her rocker parents. Her mother overdosed when she was young, and her father struggles with addiction.

    • Lanette Rodgers says:

      I was sent a digital copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review: I haven’t read a ton of urban fantasy. I get worried about that genre that the magic or fantastical elements will feel forced on the characters and the reader, but the magical elements in We Own the Sky were really well done! It didn’t feel forced at all.This was so much fun to read! It was so different and original, and I love the treatment of Greek muses in this story! It really did Greek mythology and muses [...]

    • Caleb Abel says:

      We Own the Sky is a book with a very clever premise. I thought the idea of using Ancient Greek mythology in a modern setting sounded very interesting, and I was excited to give this book a try. Overall I would say it was a fun read, and anyone that likes Twilight would definitely like this book. There are some problems for me with the execution. The plot feels almost too similar to Twilight, so it read a bit like fan fiction to me. There also are a lot of red flags between Sylvia and Vincent in [...]

    • Bruce Blanchard says:

      Sylvia Baker is not your typical teenage girl. Her mother is gone & her father is a musician and part of a band looking to make it big. She's a bit of a social misfit and genuinely loves music being an accomplished player herself. To really release emotions musically, you have to know the blues & she does. She's a dreamer & vulnerable. Change comes when she sees a flickering man named Vincent & he is her muse with emotions & vulnerable as well. Together, they could be a perfe [...]

    • Kirsti Call says:

      I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.What I liked: The premise of this book is intriguing. The idea of Greek Muses actually existing and inspiring true art is compelling. I love the idea of Muses inspiring creativity all over the world. The relationship between Sylvia and the other teens seemed authentic. Sylvia's feelings about music are powerfully described and her relationship with her dad is complex and realistic. Sara Crawford touches on tough topi [...]

    • Samantha says:

      I voluntarily read and reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.This was an interesting read, a bit different from the other ghost relationship books I’ve read, very good plot idea on the Muses but I don’t think the execution was pulled off very well. Well, unless it’s supposed to be written very simply for teens.I just couldn’t get lost here. There were a few sentences that seemed like they didn’t belong and everything was a little abrupt.There didn’t seem to be any emotion in the [...]

      We Own the Sky - a review by Rosemary KennySylvia's a sensitive, tortured soul, whose Mom, Lydia, left when Sylvia was just 11. The event triggered depression and suicidal thoughts that it was her fault somehow, causing her father Dylan to have her sectioned at Riverview, a mental health facility and medicated there for some months.On returning home what does Sylvia continue to see? How does this affect her?Who is Travis and what do the teens have in common? When does Vincent connect with Sylvia [...]

    • Pages For Thoughts says:

      This story shows the power of music, and how it truly can save a life. The purpose of music is to touch others and convey emotion. Just like reading, music is a way to escape our problems. We Own the Sky proves how life changing music can be. Speaking of music, the artists and songs that Sylvia likes are still around and popular with teens today, which also makes the book connectable on another level. We Own the Sky is emotional and will touch the hearts of many teens. High school life and its s [...]

    • Velma Hayes says:

      Why does Washington have really good musicians? The weather. Now this has nothing to do with this book, but it does go to state of mind. Going through teenage-hood is a trail all by itself, when you add to that the people around you falling apart well you get a different type of crazy. Imagine your the only sane person in the room, it's going to take a toll especially to a gifted young person. I love this book because it has depth, full characters you can relate to, a solid plot-line, and it's [...]

    • Kelly Mccurdy says:

      Some people think of artists, any type of artist, that talk to themselves at crazy. They have to be if they are talking to themselves right? Well, what if they aren’t talking to themselves, but to their muses? We can’t see them, but the artists can. Authors create art by having story just pop up in their thoughts. What if a muse put those story lines in their heads? This book has mystery and frustration and love in it. But the more important thing it has is the love of art. Not just painting [...]

    • Gabrielle says:

      I really enjoyed reading this book. I didn’t know much about the Greek Muses before this and really liked how the author took the traditional story and made it her own. I like how the author created her characters. It made the whole story realistic, and made it seem like it could actually happen. Sylvia seems to me a very strong, inspirational character as she navigates her history and current struggles. I am excited to know what happens to her in the next book because I know she can overcome [...]
