I just so love how the author did the twist with the love between Farron and Claire. Also how the plot was and how the king made the sea, or THE COUNCIL did. I just CAN'T WAIT for the next book!!!!
So I finished the first book in one day, and began reading the second book immediately thereafter. I love the development of characters and the love story between Claire and Fare. The story, mystery and deception are somewhat more revealed in this book and we get more details about who is behind the attacks. I really enjoyed how Casey plays around with the idea of love while simultaneously telling a coming of age story in the heroine. I can't wait for the next book, and do hope in my heart of hearts that love will conquer obstacles between Fare and Claire. This is a great read, full of emotion, magic and adventure.
More like a 3.5
I have really enjoyed these 2 books. They are well written and kept me reading late into the night. I only have one real problem. The heroine, Claire, is really getting on my nerves!! After two books, she should've matured more! Her naïveté is getting old. She seems unbelievably clueless at times. I'm not sure if I'll get the next one in the series unless Claire matures a great deal.
