"Fierce and unrelenting...Do yourself a favor and get lost in this beautiful book!" --Tomi Adeyemi, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Children of Blood and Bone Set in a kingdom where danger lurks beneath the sea, mermaids seek vengeance with song, and magic is a choice, Adalyn Grace's All the Stars and Teeth is a thrilling fantasy for fans of Stephanie Garber's Caraval and Sarah J. Maas's Throne of Glass series. She will reign. As princess of the island kingdom Visidia, Amora Montara has spent her entire life training to be High Animancer--the master of souls. The rest of the realm can choose their magic, but for Amora, it's never been a choice. To secure her place as heir to the throne, she must prove her mastery of the monarchy's dangerous soul magic. When her demonstration goes awry, Amora is forced to flee. She strikes a deal with Bastian, a mysterious pirate: he'll help her prove she's fit to rule, if she'll help him reclaim his stolen magic. But sailing the kingdom holds more wonder--and more peril--than Amora anticipated. A destructive new magic is on the rise, and if Amora is to conquer it, she'll need to face legendary monsters, cross paths with vengeful mermaids, and deal with a stowaway she never expected... or risk the fate of Visidia and lose the crown forever. I am the right choice. The only choice. And I will protect my kingdom. An Imprint Book "Vicious and alluring, All the Stars and Teeth is a force to be reckoned with." --Hafsah Faizal, author of We Hunt the Flame "Jam-packed with swashbuckling adventure, swoonworthy romance, and dark, lush magic." --Christine Lynn Herman, author of The Devouring Gray… (més)

The first thing that captured my attention about this book was the gorgeous cover and I’m always enamored of stories about princesses who have to protect their kingdoms, so I knew I had to read this one. And I just flew through it in such a short time.

I have seen a bit of mixed reviews for this book but I personally felt that the plot was very fast paced, and I couldn’t put it down for the most part. I loved the gorgeous descriptions of the different islands and the cultures, fashions and architectures which are unique to each of them. . And even though I’m not that fond of water, I could totally feel the joy and the freedom that the main character feels when she is on the ship in the middle of the vast ocean. The different kinds of elemental magic are things we know about but the way they are distributed across the kingdom and the lore behind it is fascinating, and I especially liked seeing majestic sea monsters as well as seductive beautiful mermaids. I will not say the book is action packed, but the journey the characters undertake is pretty cool, with things happening all the time and I never got bored.

The main character Princess Amora has grown up knowing she is the perfect leader for her kingdom and despite what happens in the beginning, she never loses sight of her goal. She may come across as naive and arrogant and privileged, which isn’t untrue, but I liked the fact that she understood and accepted her faults and tried to be better for her people. Her intent always remains to protect her kingdom, even when revelations about her family rock her whole existence and I liked that confidence in her.

Bastian is a pirate and his depiction is quite tropey but I enjoyed his character. He may come across as just a swashbuckling type, but his character really has a lot of depth and it was fascinating to know his backstory and what lengths he was ready to go to protect his island from being destroyed. Ferrick is a healer and honestly, one of the most selfless character I’ve read in a while who is doing the best he can in the situation he finds himself in, even when it’s not what he wants. He puts the needs of the kingdom before his own and I admired him a lot for his bravery. Vataea is a mermaid who has been imprisoned for her powers and Kong’s for freedom, but still decides to help the princess on her quest because she believes in honor and she was another brave character with wicked cool magic. I loved the changing nature of the bonds between each of these characters and how they built a trust through the course of the story and became the kind of crew everyone would love to have. There is also a budding romance which kind of changes into something unexpected towards the end and I’m quite interested to see what happens next.

To conclude, this was a fun, fast paced, entertaining YA fantasy read with a cool magic system, gorgeous descriptions and likeable characters. Even though it can feel predictable or tropey at times, it did have its revelatory and satisfying moments and I found it a comforting read in my favorite genre, which is what I needed. ( )

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. Unfortunately, there is still always a risk of slight spoilers despite my best efforts. If you feel something in my review is a spoiler please let me know. Thank you.

When Amora loses control of her power during a demonstration that was supposed to prove she is fit to rule the kingdom. She runs off with a Pirate and her unwanted fiance to prove herself and save her kingdom at the same time.

~It's a bit dark

Dislikes:
~Missed opportunity for adventure
~Just didn't catch my attention as well as it should have
~Romance a bit flat

This book was everything I should have loved. But for some reason I didn't. I liked it well enough, and I'm interested in reading the next book of the series once it is published. However, the book was just not really catching. I enjoyed it while I read it, but had no urge to pick it up after I put it down again. I feel like there could have been so much more to both the romance part of the story and the adventure.

I did love that there was a pirate, but maybe a bit to nice for a pirate, and a mermaid. I love the magical aspect of the world and while usually I don't like politics in my books. This one was done in a way that worked with the story and didn't sound boring and technical. ( )

OH WOW THAT GORGEOUS COVER ( )
  EmilyMabb | Jun 21, 2021 |
I know I have been leaning heavily towards fantasy novels lately. So when I say that All the Stars and Teeth is a fantastic novel, it means something. Yes, it follows the standard young adult fantasy novel format. There is a love interest (although minor), and it is a bit predictable and simplistic. However, Amora Montara is such an amazing character that none of that other stuff matters.

Fierce is the best word I can use to describe Amora. She has a strong personality, as one would expect, but she also has an unwavering sense of duty. Moreover, she has a well-defined sense of identity – something that tends to be missing in young adult heroines. Normally, they have to grow into their identities. Amora never needs to do that. Her identity drives all of her actions and desires. It is what gives her purpose and ultimately what you come to respect about her the most.

Another facet of Amora’s character I find highly admirable is her strong ethics and sense of justice. She never hides her head in the sand but demands answers to situations that seem to be contrary to what she was taught. When she begins to question her magic, the sparks truly fly. We have all read heroines who blindly follow their teachings rather than the evidence. Yet, Amora does not hesitate to question at the first sign of differences, even if it means rethinking the one thing that she holds most sacred about her family.

Speaking of magic, hers is unlike anything I have ever seen in a YA novel. It adds a deliciously dark note to the entire story that simply enhances Amora’s character and her quest for information. In addition, it challenges those strongly held ethics that so define her.

Amora Montara is the type of leader we all deserve – honest, caring, willing to listen, and most importantly, willing to learn. She doesn’t take the easy path but does what is right for her people. There is no angst, no hand-wringing about tough decisions. Everything about Amora is decisive and for the greater good. Gods, I love her.

Series Info/Source: This is a stand alone book that I borrowed from the library.

Story (3/5): The story starts out a bit dark, with our heroine trying to harness the soul magic she wields in a very gruesome way as part of a ritual to claim the throne of Visidia. When things go wrong she ends up fleeing with a pirate to find out what else is going wrong with the kingdom as a whole. The magic is interesting but a lot is thrown at the reader at once. The story is primarily a sailing adventure but the majority of the plot is politics driven (not my favorite).

Characters (3/5): I didn’t really like or engage with any of the characters, they all seemed selfish and immature to me. They were also a bit thin on characterization and came off as very two dimensional.

Setting (3/5): There is some interesting world-building here with all the islands and their different forms of magic. However, getting all this thrown at us at once is just too much of an info dump. There is an index in front to help. However, there was a lot of telling us about the different islands and very little showing.

Writing Style (3/5): I thought the writing sounded stiff and a bit immature at times...lots of telling and not much decent description. This made it hard for me to really engage with, and enjoy, the story.

Summary (3/5): Overall I thought this was okay but nothing special. Just another YA fantasy. The writing style just seemed a bit immature and did too much telling the reader about things rather than engaging the reader in the story. Not my favorite and I don't plan on picking up more books by this author. There's just so much YA fantasy to pick from and this one didn't stand out as being exceptional. ( )
