Publisher's Summary

Raging River, priestess of the Sun People, has just done the unthinkable. 

The Sun People are bound by an ancient law, left by the long-vanished Sky People: They must never kill. To other tribes, who have no such law, the Sun People are easy prey who will not defend themselves. Their game is poached, their stores raided, their women abducted, their men are killed for sport. 

But when Raging River and her sister are attacked by a Wolf People raiding party, River fights back and kills one of the warriors. Worse, she has killed the son of their chief. 

Now, with the Wolf People vowing revenge and her people facing annihilation, River must do the impossible. She must prove herself as priestess. She must find the mythical Sky People. 

The Sky People is a fast-paced novella of revenge and redemption that explores new territory for number-one international best seller Terry Goodkind.

Way too short

Loved the book, good storyline. Terry Goodkind is one of my favorite authors. This was my fault, I didn't realize that this book was a Novella. If I had I would not have wasted a credit on it - turned it into a very expensive read. Hoping he will do some longer books soon. I prefer supernatural storytelling so will look for another, hopefully longer book for my next credit.

Kind of a dumb story

Native american space alien story? Maybe an ok kids book, but pretty bad writing overall.

Outstanding piece of work

I found this a very realistic and different approach to alien encounter. Taking the perspective from the alien point of view was very different but exciting. Great work from a guy I will truly miss who I hope is now among the stars.

not the best Terry Goodkind

i liked that there was no cursing or sex. very positive message.

for younger kids. story is a bit juvenile. this entire book could've covered years...but it only covered hours. just not realistic expectation of real life

Fun but predictable

This story was fun to imagine “what if”. The ending was quite predictable. o o

Whatever

It used to be that characters would learn lessons, meet challenges, overcome weaknesses and generally grow as a story progresses. The only lesson I can find here is this - With a little attitude and verbal abuse, you will always succeed at everything and will always be right. I've seen teletubby episodes with more substance than this story. The narration seemed ok. it's not her fault she had to say the word people for what felt like hundreds of times in a few hours. Sky people, sun people, wolf people, the people, our people, your people, my people, over and over. good god man. Just explain each group called themselves some variation of the people and be done with it. Or just run it into the ground I guess.

Ultimately, I wish I could erase this completely redundant 4 hour lecture on the power of Mary Sue from my memory.
