Young Adult Paranormal
Gabby lives by two unbreakable rules: don’t expose her kind, the Sary, and don’t fall in love—too bad some rules are made to be broken.
When Gabby’s most difficult charge accidently shoots her in front of a class full of students, the event exposes her carefully hidden identity. She shifts from looking like a normal teen to her secret Sary form, revealing her wings and the existence of her kind—immortals who try to keep people from committing suicide. Her incident attracts the attention of the next leader of the Sary, Jassen, who offers her an impossible bargain: she can keep her wings if she makes amends with those who know the truth. Things get more complicated when a rebel Sary, intent on exposing them to the world, starts interfering with Gabby’s work. And there’s no denying her attraction to Jassen, who is torn between his duties and his heart. With threats at every turn and her immortality on the line, Gabby has to find a way to save the Sary or surrender the sky forever.

Gabe isn’t your typical high school girl, in fact, she isn’t a human at all. Gabe is one of the Sary that look after the troubled mind. When her current assignment gone wrong, she was sure that she will lose her wings and become a mortal. Then the heir of Sary arrived, not only Gabe isn’t going to lose her wing, but she might have an even bigger problem than losing her wings.

Imagined one of your high school classmates was actually a Sary, and she was sent to help prevent someone from your class to hurt themselves, and those around him. That’s Gabe’s latest assignment, though it didn’t turn out the way she have hoped to be, she did save tons of people that day. Just not her assignment.

This book did not wasted any time and dive straight into the action from the beginning. (although, I did find out after I finished this book, that this book is part of a series) I was hooked from page one, and immediately draw to the story and characters. I really enjoy the concept of this new Angelkind, where their existence is to help the trouble minds.

Overall, I enjoy reading Surrender the Sky, Gabe is a kind Sary that will do what she can to prevent tragedy, even if it means to sacrifice herself. It was interesting to learn that having feeling for another Sary was considered a taboo among the Sary. Gabe’s attraction for Jessen gradually straighten throughout the book, and it turns out Jessen have noticed her long ago, but because of his position, he couldn’t express nor he planned on acting on them.

I would like to read more about Bea and Nathan, since they were secondary characters, the book didn’t really talk about what’s going on between them and what will happen now he is staying permanently. I imagined things are going to change in the Sary society, and wonder how much will Gabe impact in the new change.
