    I really enjoyed this book and love all of the characters but I have it 4 stars. Amora slightly irritated me through most of the book with the way she treated Bastian over something that wasn’t his fault at all. He was suffering just as much as she was and it’s like she didn’t even care. Her continuously whining about her father and wanting to bring him back even though she would and was putting her friends in danger with her decisions. Ferrick.... 😩 I can’t say anything without spoiling it for I really enjoyed this book and love all of the characters but I have it 4 stars.

I expected more sea adventure and magic but what I got was royal theatrics. I still liked the characters and enjoyed their interactions. The depth of Amora's grief felt very real and raw due to what she goes through in the first book. I appreciated the roles each of the characters played, they were the ones that truly carried the story. There wasn't much to the plot honestly. I wanted to see some gripping action sequences and more magic because that's what I loved about the first book, it introduced such a unique magic system that was unfortunately left unexplored. The romance was sweet when it wanted to be, but it was frustrating most of the time. The writing was good and immersive and I flew through the pages. I think I would've been fine if it was a stand-alone rather than a duology.

    Okay, first off - I really enjoye diving into All the Tides of Fate It was a pretty interesting sequel and I just love all things pirate at this point. Second, I'm not a fan of killing a certain someone just because. It's like Rue all over again. Or Finnick. OR ANY OTHER CHARACTER, main or side, THAT I FELL IN LOVE WITH AND WAS MURDERED IN FRONT OF MY EYES. So, yeah, I was a tad bit upset with what happened just so you know. Other than that, I was and forever will be on team Amora and Bastian.

They love each other. Even though this whole push pull thing was kind of annoying between them in this book. It was just kind of obvious that they should've been together from the start but noooo - no one said a damn thing. It was annoying. In the end, I still loved this book because of the characters and the adventure they went on. Plus the whole magic vs. not having magic thing. Oh and Amora was just kind of amazing throughout it as well. Okay, more than amazing. Just know that I loved it.

Adalyn Grace, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME?!? #WorstBookHangoverEver In all seriousness, though, this book truly was spectacular, and there are no words in the English language that can properly express how much I loved it. It’s one of those books that falls under the “Had Me Bawling Into My Pillow At 3 AM” Category. There, THAT should give you an idea of how much I loved it. 😂 I was rather apprehensive when going into All the Tides of Fate, as its predecessor, All the Stars and Teeth (AKA, one of my favorite reads of 2020), left me with SKY HIGH expectations. I was worried that, like so many other sequels out there, All the Tides of Fate would be a victim of the dreaded Book 2 Curse. But guess what? It totally wasn’t! All the Tides of Fate was just as good as All the Stars and Teeth. In fact, there are some aspects of the book that made me like it even MORE than All the Stars and Teeth. For example, the development of the various characters in the story. Let’s start with our protagonist, Amora. The poor girl had to go through A LOT in this book. After witnessing the brutal death of her father in All the Stars and Teeth, Amora’s heart is heavy with grief, guilt, and regret. She finds herself getting easily panicked and overwhelmed, and for a majority of the novel, she is very emotionally closed off. I really appreciate that Adalyn Grace did NOT gloss over Amora’s trauma and grief like many other YA authors do when a character faces a major loss. Instead, she made Amora’s pain a big part of the story and portrayed the reality of grief with such rawness and honesty that I can’t help but applaud. In most of the YA novels I’ve read, when someone the protagonist loves is killed off, they spend a very brief amount of time mourning them, and then they continue on with their adventures as if nothing has changed. This is NOT realistic. That’s why I love that Adalyn Grace didn’t shy away from making Amora’s grief a primary focus of the book. Grief is NOT short-term, and it’s important to portray it realistically in literature. Because of her PTSD and grief, Amora went through a tremendous amount of growth in this novel, and I’m so proud of her. She’s a character I’ve loved getting to know these past two books, and her depth and complexity make her a very memorable one as well. And of course, I can’t forget about the wonderful supporting characters in this story! Ferrick, Vataea, and Bastian occupy an extremely special place in my heart. They’re all very different, and that’s why I love them so much. In the past, I’ve seen authors dedicate all of their energy to developing their protagonists, resulting in very bland casts of supporting characters. Adalyn Grace is different. Her secondary characters are JUST as phenomenally developed as her protagonist, even though we’re not reading from their perspectives. Ferrick, Vataea, and Bastian each have so many layers to them, and it’s been a pleasure getting to peel them all back as I’ve gotten to know them better and better. But I must admit… I have a feeling that some of these characters’ adventures aren’t quite over yet (*cough cough* VATAEA), so I’m hoping, praying, and BEGGING for more stories set in Visidia in the future! (Adalyn Grace, if you’re seeing this… Can we PLEASE get a Vataea novel? PRETTY PLEASE?) Moving on, I also really loved how the character relationships in this duology were developed. We got to see a lot more of Amora and Bastian in All the Tides of Fate, and I like how Adalyn Grace really took their relationship to a deeper and more emotional level. They’re definitely one of my new favorite fictional couples, as I’ve become so attached to both of them! Now, before I wrap this review up, can I please take a moment to express how glad I am that this series was written as a duology and not stretched out into a trilogy? Even though it absolutely tore my heart apart, the ending of All the Tides of Fate was absolutely PERFECT, and the story as a whole came to a very neat conclusion. So many series these days are unnecessarily long, which is why I’m happy that the author and publisher recognized that only two books were needed to tell this fantastic story. #DuologiesForTheWin Overall, All the Tides of Fate was a magnificent (and heartbreaking) ending to a series that I love so much. The characters in this story are some of my favorites of all time, and I already miss them endlessly! If you like swashbuckling, high-seas adventures full of magic, beauty, and self discovery, you MUST read this series! It’s beyond amazing!

    4.5 ⭐️ I really enjoyed this book especially with its ending. The ending was well done and did a great job of concluding the events that happened and getting to see what each character is doing now. The character death that happens was very emotional getting to see their letter that talks about the impact that their friends had on them was really emotional. The characters were great, but in this Amora was kind of annoying mainly with her pushing away from Bastian, but I understand why she did it. 4.5 ⭐️ I really enjoyed this book especially with its ending.

It would have been even more annoying if she wasn’t a character that is easy to connect with. But besides that the romance was good and had good development from all that. And the adventure was great, especially since we got to learn more about different types of magic on this journey. Overall, this was an enjoyable sequel and I can’t wait to see what the author will write next.

    3.5 stars I have to start out by saying I really enjoy this world. The different kinds of magic and what they can do are interesting and the pirates and sea creatures are very cool. I like that Amora toured some of the islands and we saw how the people there live and the unique ways they wield magic. The world was my favorite part of this duology and well done. I also fully ship Amora and Bastien and think they make a good couple.

I also fully ship Amora and Bastien and think they make a good couple. I was sad that Amora was pushing Bastien away because of the soul bond. It wasn't his fault and he was so eager to help her and be there for her. His love for Amora was beyond sweet and Bastien is a great guy. What I struggled with was the slow paced for the first half. I was irritated with how Amora was treating Bastien and her friends and not much was happening. Luckily it picks up and had some fun fights and curses after the half and the pacing really increased. I also wasn't happy with one of the big things that happened at the end. I felt like it didn't need to happen and it put a damper on the ending for me. (view spoiler)[Why did Ferrick have to die AND be forgotten? He loved Amora but she chose Bastien so the solution was to kill him? (hide spoiler)] If the part at the ending hadn't happened, I would have given this four stars.

Amora struggles to gain the respect and love of her people, and questions herself and her ability to rule. Let's add the fact that she's still bound to Bastian (I won't give away why in case you all haven't read book one). So, when it's recommended to her that she should begin to find a suitor and give the kingdom a sense of safety, she embarks on a tour of the islands. But isn't a husband she has on her mind. It's a way to break the thingie from the first book's thingie that happened at the end. Amora encounters opposition, and she soon finds out that her position isn't as secure as she once thought. Amora is still the fierce protagonist we had in book one. But her nervousness and flaws are evident throughout the story. She makes some dire mistakes that almost cost her life. The pressure is on, and it's clear that her head isn't in the game at all times. That is what I love about her character. She's queen, sure, but she'd also a teenager plagued with loss and heartache. I loved the romance and the tension. It felt like book one all over again, which is great. We're presented with new obstacles and an almost brand new story-line. The friendships are sweet but made of glass, and Amora has to learn to trust herself and others if she wants to meet her goal. This is a superb sequel to this YA series. It's filled with magic, secrets, action, and romance that makes my squishy heart thump. I absolutely loved it.

    1.25 stars I absolutely loved the first book, but I feel so mixed about this one. I am a tad disappointed, but I went into this book not really knowing much about the plot, so maybe my expectations just did not align with what this book was promising?

I found the beginning to drag quite a bit, and honestly, I was very bored at times. In this sequel, we follow a sort of bachelorette parade but...we really don't? Honestly, I am not sure what the purpose of this sequel was since so many of the characters that I LOVED in the first book took a backseat. While I loved the romance between the two main characters in the first book, I found their issues in this one to be a bit annoying and unbelievable. I think my main frustration with this sequel resides in Amora. I loved her character in the first book, but I found myself at such odds in this sequel. There were moments where it felt as though her development was going backward. I did not understand most of the decisions she made or why she made them, and overall I was confused as to why she felt at such odds with Bastian. The stakes felt so high in the first book, but this one just fell flat. I think ATSAT could exist as a stand-alone with the last hundred or so pages of this book added in. The main conflicts in this sequel just seem to be resolved so easily in the last hundred pages that the first 3/4th of the book just dragged and seemed unnecessary. I would've loved to see more of Bastian and the rest of the crew, but what scenes they did have was a bit of a letdown. I also wanted more pirates!!! I think the pirate aspect was the main reason I was drawn to the first book, and this one lacks a substantial amount of that aspect so perhaps that is why I was a bit let down by it. Moving onto what I liked, I must say that I adore Adalyn Grace's writing style. I still stand by my love for the first book and I will probably reread it in the future, but I can't see myself picking up this sequel again in the future. I am so excited about her newest novel but this one was a bit of a letdown. If you are more into the politics of this book, then I highly suggest picking up the sequel! If you are more into the adventure and pirate aspect of this book then I'd leave continuing up to you. **Thank you to the publisher for sending me an early ARC of this book!

    I finally got book two YES!!! *Warning: this review contains spoilers for book 1* No spoilers for book two not in spoiler tags After getting this last night I basically read it every second I was awake since then to finish it. And WOW. It was different from book one but I still enjoyed it, just in a different way. This book is focused more on things like character development, the aftermath of everything, etc. and I really enjoyed that. Oftentimes in books where the main character becomes the ruler I finally got book two YES!!! *Warning: this review contains spoilers for book 1* No spoilers for book two not in spoiler tags After getting this last night I basically read it every second I was awake since then to finish it. And WOW. It was different from book one but I still enjoyed it, just in a different way. This book is focused more on things like character development, the aftermath of everything, etc. and I really enjoyed that. Oftentimes in books where the main character becomes the ruler over a certain place, the book just...leaves of there. Oh, they all lived happily after....that's not usually how it works. Ruling a kingdom takes a lot of work (I have no experience but it seems pretty obvious) and especially if you've gone on some sorta fancy quest to do this, you've probably left a lot of destruction in your wake. Also, you've probably changed and that's an interesting thing to look at. First of all, I want to talk about Ferrick. I think that Ferrick changed the most out of the entire crew and it was really cool to see. In book one, he was always sort of in Amora's shadow, doing things for her, to impress her. He was this sort of awkward...deadweight, at some points. Plus, I feel like last book Amora was constantly looking down on him which didn't help. But in this book, he's really amazing. With their engagement severed and his thoughts no longer constantly on trying to impress Amora, he's really stepped into his own skin, he really is like a very different person. He has great ideas and is an amazingly loyal friend (well, actually that was the same as last book). I also love how his and Amora's friendship has blossomed. In book one, especially at the beginning of it, you get the sense that Amora...almost doesn't like Ferrick much? She says he's her friend but she's also just constantly scorning him almost. But I think again, breaking that engagement off really helped. They can now just be friends, not have to deal with the awkwardness of all of that, and that was really awesome to see since they were just so close. I always love seeing a good friendship in a book, especially one that's girl/boy since there are some authors who don't seem to think that it's possible for a girl and boy to be friends without falling in love. Amora. I really liked how Amora reacted to the curse, actually. At the end of the last book, she seemed, well, fine. Downplaying it, sorta. Her soul is attached to the man she loves...so what? At least it's the person she loves. But I'm glad that she's not taking it this way because she deserves to have her own soul. "I want him to know that, regardless of this curse linking us, he doesn’t own me." Another thing I enjoyed about this book was that we got to see these other islands. Book one was more focused on the adventure and I did enjoy that but I also enjoyed seeing the islands more and exploring those magics, that was super cool. The one thing that I didn't enjoy in this book was how the curse was actually played out. Like....Bastian's soul is attached to Amora's. Amora's soul is attached to Bastian. So why did we only really see this in certain points? Can't she feel his feelings and whatever's happening to him at the moment? Why did we never see that until he was actually in real danger, or it actually helped the plot forwards? Okay but also THAT ENDING AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH Yeah that's all I'm gonna say on that but-but-but *stammers*

    This has become one of my favorite reads so far this year. All the Tides of Fate blew me away and had me sobbing at 2 am. I want to say I liked this one more than the first, which NEVER happens for me! First off, Amora. This girl has been through so much and is riddled with grief. I loved her journey and how her struggles were so accurately portrayed. She mourned throughout the entire journey, and rightfully so. She had dealt with a heavy loss and people don’t bounce back easily from that. I lov This has become one of my favorite reads so far this year. All the Tides of Fate blew me away and had me sobbing at 2 am. I want to say I liked this one more than the first, which NEVER happens for me! First off, Amora. This girl has been through so much and is riddled with grief. I loved her journey and how her struggles were so accurately portrayed. She mourned throughout the entire journey, and rightfully so. She had dealt with a heavy loss and people don’t bounce back easily from that. I loved seeing her learn to deal with the loss and learn that she can be happy. Plus, her growth was phenomenal, you’ll know when you reach that last chapter that she knows what’s best for her and Visidia. Our supporting characters also play such an important part of this story. This crew is everything you’d dream it to be. Bastian is a man who is not afraid to say how he feels and I LOVED it. He was always there for Amora even when she wasn’t fully sure how she felt. Ferrick was the amazing advisor that Amora needed when she couldn’t make an important decision. He told her straight up what needed to happen and had the facts to support it. He never wavered in his new position. I also loved seeing him learn new Magic’s, he always seemed so happy while doing so. Vataea is our favorite mermaid who is so deadly and fearsome but somehow wholesome at the same time? She loves this crew and the friendship that comes with it. She would do anything for Amora and it shows. The ending was heartbreakingly beautiful. I was sobbing and had to pause on my reading for a few minutes. I cannot rave about this enough. I’m glad to have gone on this adventure with this crew and hope we’ll maybe see some of our faves in the future.

Published: 2nd February 2021 Spoiler warning; some minor spoilers for the first book All the Stars & Teeth I read and really enjoyed All the Stars and Teeth last year. It felt like a brand new idea, an original magic system and the pace was fast on account of the adventure element as well as the mystery of both Bastian and her fathers secrets about the kingdom. I remember speeding through it and raving about it as one of my favourite books of 2021. Sadly after reading All the Tides of Fate I feel like it should perhaps have been a standalone, it was good enough that it could have done. Because book two for me was just disappointing. In book one the main character Amora is difficult to like at first don't get me wrong she's petty, immature, naïve, has a bad temper but she grows on you as her character develops and you see how much more compassionate she is than her father and she begins to trust people more building a crew of people who are interesting, funny and good friends. So it was incredibly disappointing to find that in book two she had reverted to her original characteristics and all that growth had disappeared. We were back to the Amora who doesn't take responsibility, who whines and wants someone else to do it for her, and who suddenly keeps secrets and doesn't trust her crew despite her own inner monologue telling her to on a number of occasions. The plot itself was very disjointed we open up where book one left off and find Amora Queen now and sent off on a journey to find a husband but really on a secret mission she hasn't told anyone about. Which of course also means we barely get any exposure of the other characters who made the story so great in the first book. I'd definitely look at books by this author again because I loved the first one so much but I think it could have stood up on its own.

In order to restore the kingdom by finding an alliance to secure the throne and with a personal secret agenda she embarks on a journey again with her amazing crew to travel around her kingdom I honestly enjoyed seeing the rest of the islands of Visidia with intriguing magic system of their own but nothing major happens plot wise for a good part of the book which made the first half little dragged out. As per the characters I really liked the rest of the crew- Bastian, Ferrick, Vattea including Shanty, however I found myself constantly being annoyed with Amora, as much as we understand her unfortunate plight, for me her actions seemed devoid of logic most of the time. I enjoyed the bromance between Bastian and Ferric and I truly wished they had more presence in the plot than they were offered with The plot picks up in the last quarter of the book, the twists and turns were quite unexpected. The climax twist especially was brutal, I did not see that coming. It is an ok duology overall, definitely pick it up if you like a unique magic system, seafaring adventures and duologies

Thank you for the opportunity!* Having recently read All the Stars and Teeth, I was SO excited to dive back into this world. All the Tides of Fate certainly did not disappoint! It’s so hard to put into words how I’m feeling after this one. Definitely feeling all the feels. The story starts off a couple of months after the events that took place in the first book. You quickly become acclimated. Amora has taken her rightful place as queen of Visidia through much blood and sacrifice. The islands in the kingdom are in a state of turmoil and with people beginning to question Amora, and her authority, she doesn’t want to show anyone her weaknesses. She can’t let anyone know about the curse, her loss of magic, and the boy who holds a part of her soul. To save herself and Visidia, Amora sets out on a quest to find a mythical artifact that could fix all their problems. She finds that it comes at a terrible cost. She tries to find a balance between everything, and learns that the power to rule could absolutely destroy her. I really loved Amora, although I wanted to throttle her at times because of some of the decisions she made. I found myself going “Why?!” a few times. Amora did face a lot of tough decisions though, and she is stubborn and very strong-willed, and felt as though because of her position, she was the one that had to get things done. I loved how Adalyn wrote this character. She just seems very real and authentic. I am happy that the story didn’t just gloss over Amora’s grief and anxiety either, and it was handled well. I truly enjoyed the whole cast of characters in this duology. I’m so glad I got to spend more time with Amora’s crew. They were a lot of fun, and they gave me a lot of laughter as well as tears. A delightful world that I am sad to say goodbye to. A painfully beautiful story, make sure you have some tissues handy.

In All the Tides of Fate, we rejoin Amora and Bastian on their adventure.

I thought Adalyn Grace did an excellent job world building in All the Stars and Teeth and this book builds on that. I love the intricate world she has built and also really appreciated the character development in the second installment. However, I did find Amora a little bit annoying at times for pushing Bastian away when their feelings for each other were clearly real. I did love Bastian because who doesn’t love a sexy pirate? There was a death at the end that I really didn’t see the point of and I didn’t love the way everything was wrapped up. Overall, this was a good novel that I read through really quickly. I think Adalyn Grace is really talented and I can’t wait to read Belladonna next.

    All the Tides of Fate is a pretty satisfying conclusion to the adventurous and swashbuckling All the Stars and Teeth duology (given the cliffhangers and plot twists at the end of the first book). In the second installment, Adalyn Grace focused more on the politics within the worldbuilding as well as the emotional aspects of the characters. So here in All the Tides of Fate, I get to know more about the islands that Amora and her crew visited.

In the second installment, Adalyn Grace focused more on the politics within the worldbuilding as well as the emotional aspects of the characters. So here in All the Tides of Fate, I get to know more about the islands that Amora and her crew visited. I found the description of these islands really colourful and I also love how each of them are distinctive in their own ways. I think the underlying dangers in these islands also artfully showed that there are political tensions brewing. I feel like Adalyn Grace did a pretty good job at exploring deeper into the worldbuilding without going to the info-dumping extreme. The writing is easy to follow through but also gave enough details for me to visualise the kingdom of Visidia! Another welcoming aspect of the sequel is the heavier character focus. Amora's narrative explores how she copes with loss and grief - a reminder that healing from emotional trauma is a long process. Similarly, Vataea's and Bastian's narratives are also very well fleshed out with much more complexity. Through the main characters, we get a pretty good contrast of how each of them processes their emotions and pains. So beneath the adventurous plot line, All the Tides of Fate scratches deep beneath the surface and explores the messy side of going through trauma. And yet, these crews are an unexpected family who supported each other despite the hardships and odds against them. While I love the worldbuilding and the messaging, I personally have a few concerns with the character dramas and some of the plots. With the character dramas, I think these got pretty repetitive towards the end and I think a few could be cut. Similarly, there were a few places in the plots where too much were shown and I was more or less able to guess where things were going (this is partially because I have read quite a lot of YA Fantasy books over the years). These aren't really major issues though as I nevertheless found All the Tides of Fate quite a fun read, it's just that I didn't think some of these plots were particularly memorable despite the emotional appeal. Despite these issues, I think All the Tides of Fate is a pretty decent and emotionally touching conclusion to the duology. If you're into something magical and adventurous, this duology is certainly worth checking out! N.B. This novel contains following content warnings: blood / gore, poisoning, alcohol, vomiting, weapons, and loss of loved ones (3.5 stars out of 5)

His whole body is surprisingly tense. Sympathetially, Ferrick places a hand on my guard’s shoulder, shaking his head. “It’s no use, Casem. This crew knows no reason.” The second book in this duology starts off a few months after the end of All the Stars and Teeth. Amora is doing the best she can to pick up the broken pieces of her kingdom all while trying not to fall apart over the death of her father. Unsurprisingly, even though the islands are now allowed to practice whatever multiple kinds of magic they’d like, there is still a lot of unrest from all of the lies that her father kept hidden. After a meeting with her advisors, it is determined that she will take a tour of her kingdom, hopefully finding a husband to sit by her side on the throne in the process. If you know Amora at all, you will know that this is not something she gives a crap about. SHE is the queen and she needs no king beside her. However, after hearing about a magical object that will allow her to break the curse on her and Bastian that can be found on one of islands, she agrees to set out with the ~old~ crew and then some. Getting back on Keel Haul with Bastian, Ferrick, and Vataea (and two newcomers Shanty—who I freaking loved—and Casem) was so refreshing. I have never personally been on a sea voyage and I doubt I ever will get the chance but there is something about pirate-y novels that call to me. Bastian’s soul is one of pain. Of longing. Yet is shines brighter than any I’ve ever seen. He’s beautiful. My heart hurt so bad to find out right away that Amora had been doing her best to stay as far away from Bastian as possible. While I get it—she didn’t want the confusion of only feeling whole when he was around and basically feeling like she couldn’t trust any kind of emotion about him—it still hurt. They obviously had strong feelings towards one another before she was cursed so I just was sad that she couldn’t rely on that and was only focusing on what she thought the curse was making her feel. He did a good job from the start though, letting her know that while he’d be going with her on this parade of bachelors, he would be trying his best every single day to prove that they did have something special, curse be damned. I loved every single second of their interactions. Always. From the start it seemed like their chemistry was pretty explosive and we definitely get more of that in this book. “You might not know now, but you’ll learn.” I don’t know where the voice comes from, but I hear it loud and clear. “Make this life everything it should be.” Overall, even though I really enjoyed this book, I almost wish there had been one more to finish out the series. In the end I felt like there should have been more to the story. The Montara curse was built up to be this huge, ugly thing and then there was the curse that Kaven had put on Amora and Bastian and you’re telling me that it all just went away because (view spoiler)[Ferrick GAVE UP HIS LIVE AND ENTIRE FUCKING EXISTANCE TO HELP AMORA??!?!?!? (hide spoiler)] . DO NOT READ THAT IF YOU DON’T WANT A HUGE SPOILER. Seriously though. That part happened so suddenly I didn’t think it could possibly be real and then it was and then I was heartbroken because that person deserved so much more *cries*. Also, we see Amora go through a lot in this book, emotionally. She made another choice at the end of the book that weirdly both did and did not make sense to me and it’s something I will not elaborate on because again, spoilers. I think that people who enjoyed the first will truly love this one too, I had just been wanting a tiny bit more. BUT BASTIAN WILL FOREVER BE #1 IN MY HEART. “To Zudoh,” he repeats, the stars in his eyes blazing with pride. “And to a thousand more adventures.” Huge thanks to Edelweiss and Imprint for allowing me to read this eARC in exchange for my honest review! ♥ For more of my reviews, please visit:

After I finished All the Stars and Teeth, I was on pins and needles to find out what happens next. I was definitely not disappointed! The story picks up 2 seasons later and Amora is the Queen of Visidia, the only ones that know about her curse and lost magic are Bastian, Ferrick, Vateea, Casem, Shanty, her Mother and Aunt Kalea. Amora has distanced herself emotionally from Bastian because she can't trust herself that her emotions are real since she can feel Bastian's emotions as well. Bastian is determined to win her back though, curse or no curse. Amora is trying to balance royal duties with reeling from her Father's death and having dark visions after learning the truth about Cato Montara and what soul magic should have been. When Ferrick arrives back to Arida with Blarthe imprisoned, the plan was to let Vateea serve whatever punishment she wanted for her torturer. But when Amora is about to let that happen, Blarthe tells Amora of an ancient artifact that can fix her curses, seeing a golden opportunity Amora hides the fact Blarthe is on the Island from Vateea and uses the pressure from the council to travel Visidia to find a Husband as cover to go searching for the artifact, so the crew assembles and the next adventure begins!! I loved getting to know more about the faceshifting Shanty and how she Bastian came to know each other, I greatly enjoyed getting to know about the other islands that were not featured in the first book. The details of the islands made it feel like I was there, mixed with great atmosphere! The writing had the perfect pacing and lots of action and secrets to keep me hooked on every page! I really enjoyed this ending and I look forward to future books by Adalyn Grace! I will post my review on Netgalley, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Google play!
