Iron of The Sky by Ryan Downey is the story of love; how desperately beautiful can be and how it can make or break a man. Our protagonist was searching for love. Through different storylines and different settings, the author shares the idea of love and how it changed the life of the characters. Join the characters on their journey of love as they discover what it truly means to love, let it go, cherish it, and bury it deep inside the heart just to keep the subject of that affection close. Sometimes, the story will be painful, but in the end, you will realize it takes a lot of courage to love and be loved.
Iron of The Sky by Ryan Downey is not a light novel, but it was entertaining nonetheless. While short chapters and the fast pace made the story easy to read, the apparent depth to the plot made me stay until the end. The fact that we learn the names of so many characters yet not the name of our protagonist sits very heavy in my heart for some reason. It was as if he didn’t feel important enough to be known, as if he thought he was not significant enough for the reader or to the person he was in love with. At times, the narrative broke the barrier between the character’s sanity and his reality. The words bled on the pages and I felt his pain. There were different storylines yet they felt connected somehow and what stayed the same in each storyline was love. Ryan Downey showed different aspects of love and how love in itself was enough to heal or break the characters. Sometimes, I could tell the protagonist wanted to burst with the love he had inside, and sometimes he just wanted to bottle it all up so that he could stay close to her. Iron of the Sky is the perfect companion on a rainy day when you just want to feel something.
