I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book continues the Selkirk series with just as much wonderful gusto as the first. The world of Selkirk is just as expansive — maybe even more so — than in the first book, and we get to know and love the cast of characters on an even deeper level. Tallis discovers her origin story in this book, and while I suspected it pretty early on in the first book, it still came as a delight. Clayton somehow delivers it both delicately while maintaining the suspense that has built up over the course of the series. Once Tallis knows, it’s almost impossible not to ride the roller coaster of emotions she goes on. There’s nothing unbelievable or unrealistic about what Tallis goes through, emotionally, even though her story is quite fantastic. Clayton does a phenomenal job of keeping her characters very, very human. My favorite part of this book was when Tallis was struggling to handle a deep, poignant moment of grief and Tomas tries to comfort her. She gets upset with him, saying that all she needs is for everyone to just respect that what she needs is to just be in her grief. Not to try and make her feel better because her sadness makes them uncomfortable. That was such a profound notion. One you don’t often see in young adult fiction, but one we need to see more because it’s important. It’s important that young people understand it’s okay for them to be sad and to be sad for as long as they need to be sad, especially when something especially terrible happens to them, no matter how it makes others around them feel. And conversely, when you’re the one on the other side — when someone you love has been hurt and is grieving, it’s okay to want them to feel better, but it’s also sometimes a good thing to let them have their space to grieve. What a lovely part of this book. Thank you, C.E. Again, I cannot wait for the third book in this series. Clayton knows how to write fantasy. Heck, Clayton knows how to write, period.
