Review by: Diogenes Ruiz on Nov. 01, 2014 :
This was a good young adult book. It was a light and easy read. The second half of the book really picks up as the journey unfolds. I would have enjoyed learning more about how the world got into the state it is in this story, and the chaos that must have ensued. That might be a good second book. There are good underlying messages about pursuit of a goal, self discovery, family, and what we value. There was nothing offensive in the book. I would recommend Seeking the Heavens to anyone who enjoys a good YA book - teens and adults alike.

Review by: Blake Petit on April 30, 2011 : (no rating)
SEEKING THE HEAVENS is a different sort of sci-fi story. Set about a century after the sky is "broken" in some catastrophic event, the human race has reverted to sort of a steampunk kind of existence. Technology works, but not at the level we're used to, and many of the things we take for granted are no longer viable. Enter Jaiden, a teenage inventor who discovers that his long-absent father has been on a quest to repair the sky. Jaiden sets out with a group of odd characters to find his father and complete the quest. Hendricks takes a very different approach to this kind of story. While most writers in this sort of setting would immerse us in a bleak, hopeless remnant of humanity, Hendricks's story is very much focused on faith and love, and the restorative power of each. It's a refreshing change of pace, and it really makes the book worth your time.
