Wild Blue Yonder by Megan Tayte--A Review



The Ceruleans: mere mortals infused with power over life and death. Five books; one question: If the might of the heavens were in your hands, would you be sinner or saint? 

When Scarlett Blake chose life-after-death as a Cerulean, she expected to grieve for all she left behind: her boyfriend, her best friend, her mother, her home. But at least Cerulea, her heaven, would be… well, heavenly. Right? 


The world in which Scarlett awakens is very far from her idea of a utopia. Picturesque, sure, and serene. But there can be no paradise within the unforgiving walls of a prison, be they of cold, hard stone or beautifully blue water. 

Now Scarlett faces her hardest decision yet: be a good, dutiful Cerulean, or be true to herself and fight for freedom. 

And if she can find a way to escape, what then? Can she finally reunite with her lost sister? Can she save Sienna from the murderous Fallen? Can she evade her destiny with the Ceruleans? 

Can Scarlett Blake ever reclaim her life-before-death… or must she let go of all she loves?


Maybe I should be thankful that I stopped reading earlier this summer.  It is allowing me the opportunity to read books 2,3 and 4 one after the other and I enjoy that.   I am not long on patience and waiting for the promised end of a series.   The Ceruleans series is a 5 book collection with Wild Blue Yonder as Book # 3.    So  I am halfway, more than halfway through the series now.   And I still love it!

In this edition a very disquieted Scarlett finds that not everything in Cerulea is as it seems.  It certainly isn't heaven and there are many restrictions placed on the womenkind.  She is devastated to find that she has been lied to by both her friend Jude, whom she trusts and "Mother" Evangeline, who has all the power and control.

We silently watch as Scarlett tests her way through the disappointments of Cerulea and learns to trust her inner being.   We even get to meet her sister.

This story is well written and fairly fast paced.  It is phenomenal how diabolical the plot is whether characters realize truth or not.

I rated this a four wink read!
