Brilliant book 2

I loved the first book and find it a struggle having to wait a while year for book 2. When I started reading it I decided to add the audiobook so I could also listen whilst not able to read. I don't always get along with audiobooks because of the narration. I have to say though that Laura Rollins is absolutely perfect here; I found myself listening more than reading because she tells the story so well.

Overall a great story, told brilliantly.

Somewhat better than Book 1

This is a fab follow up to Orphans of the Tide.
There is a better formed ‘world’, a better sense of mythology, better delivered characters too.
I enjoyed the plot… but just missed the ending… because, well, it doesn’t.
I will definitely read the next book, but this one just seemed to be a vehicle to get me there and that was the disappointment at the end.
I enjoyed it - I liked the idea of the vessel who wasn’t, the influence of The Enemy on Ellie throughout and how Seth found his existence more and more difficult. The history explained through Leila’s diary was a great addition to the story, but sadly I was just left wanting closure at the end, and I don’t feel like I got it.
