My Review

This is an action packed fantasy adventure written for children but equally enjoyable for adults. It centres around the search for relics which are key to restoring balance and defeating evil in the world. After reading the first book in this series – and listening to the audiobook version of it – I couldn’t wait to read this second book in this series, and it was just as enthralling an adventure! As Finn, Aria and Pippin set out to find the next relic they’ll encounter some double dealing, learn that not everyone is just what they seem and find a new friend whilst still trying to evade Sir Waldred and his minions. It is another great adventure, with casualties along the way, dangerous journeys through unfriendly territories and even a demon!

This is a great read, with relatable characters, none of whom are perfect! Everyone makes mistakes but Pippin being into everything, accident prone and not recognising the usual constraints regarding property of others, is definitely more likely to inadvertently make mistakes than any of the others. How the others react to these mistakes, their interactions, insights and experiences all add together to make this a fascinating story and enjoyable read. I can’t wait to read the next books in this series!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so.

    Thanks so much! I have to admit Pippin is great fun to write – she tends to not follow my plan very closely 🙂

      She seems like a precocious, well meaning but always into mischief lass, definitely with a mind of her own! I’m loving reading the series and look forward to reading more from you in future!

    Great review Elaine. I had wanted to be on the tour for this one, but it was already full. I have added it to my TBR, maybe I will get to it over Christmas if I can get my hands on a copy of both of them.

      Thank you! Hope you get to read it, Carla, I think you’ll enjoy them both. I know ‘Eternal Seas’ is also available as an audiobook with a great narrator, in case you didn’t know.
