REVIEW: The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas
The Perilous Sea continues to be epic fantasy at its best. Readers are in store for plenty of adventure and definitely some surprising plot twists. What I particularly loved were the alternating chapters--let's call them 'before' and 'after' perspectives all keeping pace until readers embark on the crucial event bringing the characters and the audience up to speed.
I certainly wasn't expecting the 'twist' but had faith everything would work out in the end. Great world building throughout with just enough snark and romance. I like that this is the kind of book with appeal to a wide range of readers, both male and female. Again, I wish the audiobook was a bit more exciting in its narrative retelling but there are no grand flaws which hinder the reading experience. I am excited to finish the series with book 3, The Immortal Heights.
Final rating: 4 out of 5 stars
