Skyship Academy: The Pearl Wars by Nick James is a great book about two kids; Jesse Fisher, a Skyship student, and a trainee for the Surface government, Cassius. In this post-terrorism world, there are two parts of the U.S.: the Surface and the Skyships. Everything is powered by Pearls, strange objects that fall from space. These pearls are what cause Jesse and Cassius to meet. A strange reactions occurs and both gain amazing, yet deadly powers. Now, they have to find out what is going on by going to the deserted city of Seattle.
The Pearl Wars is an interesting sci-fi book. It is told from the point of view of Jesse. It is also told from third person from Cassius' story. It puts an interesting spin over a fight over resources while having dramatic plot twists. The book didn't seem interesting at first, but the story proved to be something I couldn't wait to finish. I think many people will also enjoy this book
