The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young was a June COYER book club pick. I really enjoyed Sky in the Deep so I was excited to pick this book up.



Right off the bat I'm going to say I didn't love The Girl the Sea Gave Back as much. I felt like the whole mystery of Tova was overdone. It seemed pretty obvious who she was. Of course maybe not to her but definitely to the reader. Even when it's revealed who she is there is no real solid explanation as to what happened and why it happened.



There also seemed to be a lot of story without much movement. I'm pretty sure the whole story is the course of less than a week. The biggest saving grace for me was spending time with characters from Sky in the Deep!



Halvard is still a solid character and I loved seeing how he grew into a man and handled his new found responsibilities. I really enjoyed previous characters and even some the new ones.



Gunther in particular was a nice addition. Personally, I never really connected with Tova. I am convinced it's because she couldn't connect with herself. I just didn't have very strong feelings one way of the other for the characters or the story.



The story didn't seem to flow as smoothly in The Girl the Sea Gave Back compared to Sky in the Deep. I'm wondering if this is because of having duel narrators.

It might have just been a long time since I've read a book purely described as fantasy, but I felt like this book was not what I expected it to be, based on the cover. I think if I were to reread this book, or read another book by this same author, I would enjoy it more as an audiobook. Reading the unfamiliar names made it hard to keep track of who each person was and where their loyalties were. ( )

So, first I have to talk about this gorgeous cover! I have to admit the entire reason I bought both of the books in this series is becoming of this cover! ( )

Okay, now definitely NOT as good as book 1 - I didn't realize this was a part of a series - the cover is absolutely STUNNING and it was definitely full of action and adventure. I loved the magical elements to this one, and the twists and turns of every character, I was a bit confused by the end though I'm not mad at it. I think this is going to be one of my auto-buy authors! ( )
