Review by Dani Hoots
Wandering in the vastness of space, is the Sky Drifter; an academy reserved for the best students in the known universe. Seven is just such a student. Gifted in strategy and Sphere, he lives happily on-board with his friends Iris and Pi, taking on his rival, visiting planets for exploration and competition. Everything is the way he likes it, until he sees a mysterious girl in a red coat, who will reveal to him a secret that will bring everything he thought he knew crashing down around him.

Guaranteed to leave you at the edge of your seat, The Sky Drifter is full of suspense, intrigue, plot twists, and action. I read most of it in one sitting and was not able to put it down!
Seven is an interesting character as he believes he is seeing a mysterious girl, yet no one believes him. He keeps seeing her and tries to figure out why exactly she is around. I don’t want to give anything away, but each chapter is definitely full of suspense as you want to know what exactly is going on.
The characters are really interesting and are definitely not stereotypical sci fi characters. I’m glad for a bit of change as I have run into a few books that felt like cookie-cutter characters. Singer’s characters are dynamic and interesting.
I give this book a 4/5 as there are some areas that could have been flushed out, but it was a very entertaining tale. I hope to read more from this author and glad to of had the opportunity to review this novel.
