THE PERILOUS SEA by Sherry Thomas {Review}

Review by Andye

THE PERILOUS SEA
The Burning Sky #2
by Sherry Thomas
Series: The Elemental Trilogy
Hardcover: 432 pages
Publisher: Balzer + Bray (September 16, 2014)
Language: English
Goodreads | Amazon

Iolanthe and Titus continue their mission to defeat the Bane in this striking sequel to The Burning Sky—perfect for fans of Cinda Williams Chima and Kristin Cashore—which Publishers Weekly called "a wonderfully satisfying magical saga" in a starred review and Kirkus Reviews said "bids fair to be the next big epic fantasy success."

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 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 throws into question everything he believed about their mission. Faced with this revelation, Iolanthe struggles to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—or forging a divergent path to an unknowable future. 
I loved THE BURNING SKY so much. But it didn't have NOTHIN' on this book! Sorry, my excitement is bringing out my inner redneck . . . even though I'm not even Southern.

Yes, I think THE PERILOUS SEA is my favorite read of this year (so far).

I just can't begin to describe the depths of my love for this series, these characters, this world, that ROMANCE, all that action, and the incredible, incredible storyline. There is nothing I would change. Nothing. I could read this book a hundred times and never get tired of it.

Sherry Thomas is a romance writer, and it shows.

She knows, with all the knowing there is to know, how to write an amazing, suspenseful, tension-filled romance. The feelings that Iolanthe and Titus have for each other are just palpable, believable, FELT IN YOUR BONES! I WANT TITUS. I WANT, I WANT!

But the romance is just the tip of the iceberg.

Thomas also knows how to create a world that is so completely fantastical, yet, at the same time, so believable. I don't want to say too much about this book in particular, because so much would be too spoilery. But let me just assure you that there is NO second book syndrome. AT ALL. Not with the romance, not with the storyline.

There's something that happens . . .

And the way she wrote it . . .

And the how things end up evolving, again . . .

It's just SO PERFECT!

We learn a lot more about Iolanthe, Titus, and even the illusive Bane. Creepy! The boarding school is still a main character, which I adore, but there are also adventures into the Crucible (Awesome), and into the desert (so mysterious).

If you haven't read THE BURNING SKY yet, just GO! READ! NOW! Some have said it starts out slowly (I disagree), but everyone I've talked to has ended up loving it. If you love magic (and if you don't how can you even stand living?), you must read this series!

Now Gimme Book 3!!!

Yep, yep, yep, it gets an EXTRA piece!

  10. Don't hate, but I actually think I liked the Burning Sky better. And Heir of Fire. Is Burning Sky on the Kindle (*yours which I stole from you*)?

    BUT EVERYONE, it was still good!!! I just thought it was more like 4 stars, not 6.

  24. I AM DIZZY ALEX FROM UNITED KINGDOM ,,,I have been in great bondage for about 7 years suffering in the hands of a cheating husband. We were living happily until he meant his old time girl friend and he started dating her again outside our marriage and before i knew it he stopped caring for his own family, to the extent that he was planning to marry her and divorce me. I cried and reported him to his family members but he never listened to anyone and to cut the story short, i came in search for a real spell caster who could destroy their relationship and make him come back to me and our 2 kids again; on my search i saw people sharing testimony on how their marriage was restored by DR OKAYA and i pick his email and told him the problem that i was going through, and he agreed to help me and told me never to worry. After he had finished casting the spell, on the second day, they both had a quarrel and he beat up his girlfriend and he came back home begging me to forgive him that his eyes are clear now that he will never do any thing that will hurt his family again and promise to be a caring father and never to cheat on me again. I am so happy that i did not lose him to the girl and all appreciation goes to Dr. OKAYA for his great work. You are a Great spell caster and to you all that are faced with this or similar problem to this, please contact him now on OKAYASPELLHELP@GMAIL.COM OR OKAYASPELLHELP@YAHOO.COM
