We Lost the Sky by Marie Howalt

we lost the sky

A stunner…

Howalt tackles the aftermath of a devastating apocalyptic event marvelously in this debut work of genius. A meteor strike on the moon has devasted Earth and the world is not even an echo of its original self. In this landscape, a teenager from the lost civilization, a young woman from the protected city of Florence, a vagrant trying to reunite with his group, and a sentinel, an artificial intelligence in a human body meet and set on a journey to find a purpose in a lost world. The story is told alternatively in the voices of the four protagonists as Howalt combines her multifaceted and unforgettable characters with crisp prose and swiftly paced narrative. Without veering into extreme bleakness, Howalt brilliantly tackles the horror and despondency; the aftermath of the terrible catastrophe and the questions an apocalypse tends to raise. This is Post-Apocalyptic fiction at its best.
