Beyond a Darkened Shore Spoiler Free Review

Another review for an amazing book!! This is spoiler free but discusses why I loved it so much! And it gets all the stars!!

I love love LOVED this book!!! This book is the reason why I read YA Fantasy (probably a bit dramatic but it was sooo good!)

Let me start from the beginning! A female… leading an army! Now that was the most surprising aspect and the fact this was hoisted upon me right at the start of the book pleasantly surprised me! The book explores Ciara’s journey with her enemy Lief to save both their families and the humans as they are from the “Giants”.

A lot of books are quick to try and show the main characters as being without fault and I loved that this wasn’t a thing in this book! You see their flaws but at the same time, you see that the characters learn from their mistakes.

Fast forward to the middle and my god!! The twists!! The dark edge (and gruesome descriptions) were an amazing added bonus for me especially since I first started reading because of horror and mystery books!

And then the ending!! (Is it ever possible to love a book this much?!) The twists were never ending!!! And one of them just tore my heart to pieces 😥

I loved the mythology aspect to the entire story, how both characters had been raised with different stories and beliefs and yet they were all brought together in a book that managed to satisfy ever question in me!!

All I can say is I can’t wait to read more from this amazing author and share more of her work with you 🙂 and yes I definitely recommend this book!!!

This book was a 5/5 from me just because it managed to keep on the edge so well!! This is definitely a perfect example of a book that has you saying “Just one more chapter” well into the night!
