My Thoughts Story Hmmm I think the number 1 thing that irked me the most about this book was how much I despised Zadie and the crap that she put Nor through Which, don t get me wrong, isn t a bad thing it shows how talented an author is to get the reader experience feelings whether negative or positive It made me think back to when I was young and watching Little House on the Prairie and how much I hated that character Nell and my mother would tell me that just shows the writers knew what they were doing that you hate the character as much as you do Sorry, I went off on a tangent there b 911 911, what s your emergency Me Yes I would like to report a robbery.
911 And what has been stolen Me My soul My soul has been taken by a book cover.
911 For Generations, The Princes Of Ilara Have Married The Most Beautiful Maidens From The Ocean Village Of Varenia But Though Every Girl Longs To Be Chosen As The Next Princess, The Cost Of Becoming Royalty Is Higher Than Any Of Them Could Ever Imagine Nor Once Dreamed Of Seeing The Wondrous Wealth And Beauty Of Ilara, The Kingdom That S Ruled Her Village For As Long As Anyone Can Remember But When A Childhood Accident Left Her With A Permanent Scar, It Became Clear That Her Identical Twin Sister, Zadie, Would Likely Be Chosen To Marry The Crown Prince While Nor Remained Behind, Unable To Ever Set Foot On LandThen Zadie Is Gravely Injured, And Nor Is Sent To Ilara In Her Place To Nor S Dismay, Her Future Husband, Prince Ceren, Is As Forbidding And Cold As His Home A Castle Carved Into A Mountain And Devoid Of Sunlight And As She Grows Closer To Ceren S Brother, The Charming Prince Talin, Nor Uncovers Startling Truths About A Failing Royal Bloodline, A Murdered Queen And A Plot To Destroy The Home She Was Once So Eager To LeaveIn Order To Save Her People, Nor Must Learn To Negotiate The Treacherous Protocols Of A Court Where Lies Reign And Obsession Rules But Discovering Her Own Formidable Strength May Be The One Move That Costs Her Everything The Crown, Varenia And Zadie I was frightened of the person I was becoming a woman who lied to everyone, who disrespected her parents, who helped her sister injure herself A woman who would spy on a king.
A woman who would steal a crownRight up until the end, I thought this was going to be a 4 star read Nor was wonderfully smart, the politics were actually interesting, and I loved the premise of the story But there were three main problems 1 The romance was absolutely shite.
2 I sympathised with the villain waythan I did with the heroes 3 The ending was extremely deus ex machina and not worthy of the book at all.
Like I said, the premise really good Seventeen year old Nor whose name means coral lives in the ocean village of Varenia with her twin sister Zadie pearl It s literally an ocean village the houses are on stilts over the wate longer review tk BUT GUYS THIS BOOK IS AMAZING as is Mara and will delight anyone who loves a good twin relationship, ocean aesthetics, and complex villains 333 I love this book I was fortunate enough to read an early copy, and was immediately entranced by the rich, atmospheric world Nor and Zadie have one of the most touchingly authentic sister relationships I ve ever encountered, and Nor s journey has all the tension, twists, and romance I crave in YA fantasy Couldn t put this one down This is so fun, and unique and I completely love this I don t read very much YA Fantasy anyand this one is just so easy to read and fly through I m just going to go over some plot and some key points that really made this stand out for me.
Overview In this world, one beautiful girl is chosen from the village of Varenia to become the wife of the Prince of Ilara Now, of course, there isn t a set time of year this happens, it s just every time there s a new prince Nor and her sister Zadie are the daughters of the runner up for the prettiest girl for the current King Their mother is bitter and wants one of her daughters to be picked for the current prince, Ceren Everyone knows Zadie is going to be picked, there s no doubt about it, only because Nor was in an accident when she was younger and her face is sca Maybe it s just me, but I find Zadie incredibly annoying Nor gives her the credit for everything and lies through her teeth to protect her sister and Zadie lets her do it Their mother is vile, vain, and abusive.
So far, I have only gotten to 20% I will keep going to see what happens when the inevitable switch takes place and she gets off the island Is it an island or like Water World So far, the women of the water city are incredibly superficial Beauty is literally the only thing that matters It s almost dystopian in its tyrannical rules leaving the city is punishable by death Hopefully, there is a purpose for this.
Nor is a bit TSTL and prone to the I have to save everybody syndrome So far, there is not really anything unique about this Sometimes I couldn t be bothered by that is the slightest, but it s not wor



4 5 StarsI m the perfect seashell you pick up from the ocean floor, only to turn it over in your hand and see the crack Thank you, NetGalley and Harlequin Australia, for sending me an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review did i add this to my tbr just because the cover s pretty no, why would you suggest that
