Review: The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas

Thursday, August 7, 2014
Why I chose this book: 

After finishing The Burning Sky, I knew I had to pick up this automatic download ARC from Edelweiss. I had to know what was going to happen to Iolanthe and Titus! These books are just too good to pass up, and I’m so happy that I was able to snag an e-copy. I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

After spending the summer away from each other, Titus and Iolanthe (still disguised as Archer Fairfax) are eager to return to Eton College to resume their training to fight the Bane. Although no longer bound to Titus by a blood oath, Iolanthe is more committed than ever to fulfilling her destiny—especially with the agents of Atlantis quickly closing in.

Soon after arriving at school, though, Titus makes a shocking discovery, one that makes him question everything he previously believed about their mission. Faced with this devastating realization, Iolanthe is forced to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—and forging a divergent path to an unknowable future.

Review: The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas

Why I chose this book: 
I bought this book when it first came out with every intention of reading it, but somehow it got lost in my bookshelves, and I didn't pick it up until I realized that Sherry Thomas is going to be at an author event later this summer. Of course, I had to read it before I met her. 


The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas
Publisher: Blazer + Bray
Publish Date: September 17th, 2013
Format: Hardback
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Historical Fiction
Synopsis:
It all began with a ruined elixir and a bolt of lightning.

Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she's been told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the most powerful tyrant and mage the world has ever known. This would be a suicide task for anyone, let alone a reluctant sixteen-year-old girl with no training.


Guided by his mother's visions and committed to avenging his family, Prince Titus has sworn to protect Iolanthe even as he prepares her for their battle with the Bane. But he makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the tyrant closing in, Titus must choose between his mission—and her life. (Goodreads)
