About the Book:
Title: All the Stars and Teeth
Author: Adalyn Grace
Release Date: February 4, 2020
Genre: YA Fantasy
Set in a kingdom where danger lurks beneath the sea, mermaids seek vengeance with song, and magic is a choice.
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 stow-away 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.
A solid debut for Adalyn Grace! This book and cover called to me, as I love books that take place on or near the sea. I also love the fact that it involves pirates, mermaids, quests, and magic which are some of my favorite things.
Amora Montara is the princess of the island kingdom of Visidia. She’s been training her whole life to be a high animancer, a master of souls. Others in the kingdom have been able to choose their magic, but Amora has never had a choice and must prove herself capable and worthy of being able to wield the magic.
As Amora is giving her demonstration and things go awry, she is forced to flee the island and strikes a deal with Bastian, a mysterious pirate. As she begins her journey, she begins to see there are lots of things happening in the kingdom that she never knew about, and there’s a destructive new type of magic on the rise. In order to defeat this magic, Amora must face many perils. The fate of Visidia and the crown are in her hands.
I highly recommend this one if you enjoy high seas adventures with a dash of romance! Be sure to add this one to your TBR if you haven’t yet.
