Every once in a while, a book surprises me. I mean really surprises me. It’s difficult to do because I grew up in my mother’s library and I read a lot of books. In The Night the Sky Fell by Stephen G. Levy, I was stunned. I was expecting a nice pleasant read at best. What I got was a totally satisfying novel that may be destined to become an American classic. It’s that good, that satisfying, and that different. I began to think it was more than it appeared to be when I got my first look at Banks Blackhorse, a part Tinglit, part Sioux Native American boy, who really wants to be white. Not just any kind of white but rich white. That is his dream, and he has a plan. I knew I was in the hands of a potential master though, as I read about the children and teenagers in this tale. Tricia Powers is a character that people will remember.
I can’t say enough good things about The Night the Sky Fell. The writing is superb. The plot is something that Stephen King might come up with. The characters are simply unforgettable and they keep the story racing along. The Night the Sky Fell is very much character driven and with a little more time and experience, we may have the next Stephen King in Stephen G. Levy. If he can keep doing this consistently. You don’t want to miss this one. A great supernatural suspense tale. Made in America. Made in Alaska.

The Night the Sky Fell by Stephen G. Levy is a tale of extraordinary beauty that will appeal to anyone who enjoys gritty tales of horror. An eighteen-year-old young man breaks loyalty to a powerful spirit and brings down its wrath onto a town. Acts of unusual violence begin to take place, directed towards innocent men. Can this city stand? Is there anyone who could be left? And can the Great Spirit be appeased? Such are questions the reader asks, caught up in the intense action of the fast paced plot as they read feverishly on.
Banks has great dreams, but dreams are not easy to come true, so when the moment happens for him to get help, he jumps on it. ‘Banks picked up a large vat from the old pickup and ran to his uncle. “Banks, is it the royal honey?” After Banks nodded, the Chief continued, “Open it…now make your wish. The Spirit above My Head will hear it better in Tlingit. Take the book and feel your way through it to the Great Spirit.”’ Banks doesn’t know that he has entered into a bargain that will cost lives and bring terror to his town. From the moment that Banks Blackhorse makes the wish, the story becomes so intense and gripping.
Stephen G. Levy combines elements of horror, paranormal, and fiction to create a story that is as absorbing as it is entertaining. But it should be noted that this is not a book for ordinary entertainment. It is the kind of story that will set hearts beating faster and the reader will undoubtedly experience a wave of conflicting emotions. The Night the Sky Fell is a
story with great characters, a powerful plot, and a tension that won’t leave any reader indifferent.
