Sky Song by Sharon Sant

What They Say:
What the man told him was too incredible to believe, yet Jacob did believe it. On some deep unconscious level he had always known it to be true. He was an invention, a fictional character.  Jacob Lightfoot didn’t exist.
A strange-eyed boy with no memory of his true identity or real parents, Jacob could have no idea of the mortal danger he has been in every day of his fifteen years. Now that danger has found him and suddenly he doesn’t know who he can trust and what is real anymore.  All he knows is that his new identity is almost as terrifying as the peril unleashing it has brought. Caught in the universal power struggle of an ancient race of beings and a destiny demanded of him that he does not want, he must fight to protect his own life and everyone he holds dear. But when the time comes, will he be strong enough to make the sacrifices that saving them will demand?
What I Say:
This is the 1st Sharon Sant book I have read and really enjoyed it, I wasn't sure that it would be the kind of book I like but it is a romance (YA) with a twist.
Jake has always known he was slightly different not just because of the fact that his eyes changed colour, if his eyes are blue it means the weather will be nice.  One night he is visited by the mysterious Makash, telling him he isn't Jake but actually the successor named Ioh, to the watcher from the mysterious Astare. Unwilling to believe this he refuses to go Makash, this sets Jake on the road to discovery of who he really is.
Jake doesn't know who to trust and unable to confide in his friends this takes him down a rocky road, with lots of ups and downs.
Jake is an a likeable character if a little naive but this is maybe down to his age.  His friends are totally loyal to Jake and the love he has for them and is parents is a great part of the book.
A great YA book and would recommend to anyone that like YA with a twist, I will be reading the follow up books and posing the reviews to those as well.
4 out of 5 stars
Sky Song is the first book of The Sky Song Trilogy.
