(Sky in the Deep)

by Adrienne Young

Expected publication: September 3rd 2019

RATING: ★★★★

4 out of 5 stars


The new gut-wrenching epic from the New York Times bestselling author of Sky in the Deep.

For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols and staves inked over every inch of her skin mark her as one who can cast the rune stones and see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east bury their age-old blood feud and join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.

For the first time in generations, the leaders of the Svell are divided. Should they maintain peace or go to war with the allied clans to protect their newfound power? And when their chieftain looks to Tova to cast the stones, she sets into motion a series of events that will not only change the landscape of the mainland forever but will give her something she believed she could never have again—a home.

MY REVIEW OF The Girl the Sea Gave Back:

Thank you to the publisher for gifting me a copy of The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young. Receiving a copy of this book has in no way swayed my opinion or review of the book.

We are one week away from the release of The Girl the Sea Gave Back & here is my full review, fully intended to make you want to pre-order it. 🙂

When I saw that Adrienne Young was publishing another book, I was ecstatic. I really enjoyed her debut novel, Sky in the Deep, which you can find my review for here: Sky in the Deep Book Review.

The Girl the Sea Gave Back was written in the same style, switching between perspectives, and that is always something that makes a book more interesting. I really enjoyed the duel perspective of the two main characters. I also was intrigued by the blurbs from the past, but I do admit it made the story slightly more confusing to follow.

The characters are interesting, the action is enticing, and this story makes you want to continue reading until you are on the very last page, and suddenly the story has come to an end. This is Adrienne Young’s second book, but both of her stories, have made me want to get my hands on whatever else she writes.

I can’t wait to see what Adrienne publishes next!

Also can we talk about the cover of this book for a brief moment?


It is absolutely to die for!

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading this book review!
