A promising start but I lost interest after about 150 pages.

I could not put this book down. It felt like such a fresh concept and I loved the characters and world building. I am already looking forward to the next one.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Clare-Dragonfly It‘s funny that you say this is a fresh concept when it has the most cliched YA book title 😂 But from the blurb it does sound like a story I would enjoy! 2mo

So pumped to actually have won something! Haha I loved this arc, bought the book, and now have some awesome bookish goodies to go along with it!

A great read & a debut author, I loved the floating village on the sea and just got immersed in the tale. I‘m a fan of the villain and really hoping for that misunderstood villain arc in book 2!

I just finished the most amazing title. This is the second book I‘ve read that was about people from the sea. And I have to say this one was the best!! Crown of Coral and Pearl by @mararutherfordwrites not only has this beautiful cover but the story about first loves, sisters, courage , and what you would do to save your world was one I won‘t soon be forgetting! Make sure to add it to your preorder list!

So much love for this book. It has some flaws, but the world building and characters are amazing. Kick ass girl lead, surprising twists of story. You won‘t regrets this read!

Ok so up to this point I have been in love with this book. Now I only only like 40% of the way through, but I am a little annoyed with Nor. As a girl who spent her whole life being judged for her beauty and scar, she meets the brother princes and decides in a hot minute that she is in love with the “pretty one“ and down casting the one she is suppose to marry as cold and cruel within minutes of meeting him. Hello pot this is kettle. 😤

Picked up the book today. It's going in my TBR. I'm hoping that it'll make a good filler until the next Embers book is released.

TheBookKeepers Cannot wait for the next Ember installment! I read this book recently and really loved it!! Definitely worth having on your shelf! 3mo
essayareayaitch @TheBookKeepers the wait for the next Embers book is killing me. I'm still upset at my friend for not telling me the first book was the first book of a series in progress. 3mo
TheBookKeepers Haha I know! I recently got my husband hooked on it too! I steadily stalk Sabaa's IG page for updates!! Can't come soon enough 3mo

Surprising, mystical, evocative, unique.

Crown of Coral and Pearl is a novel about royalty within a unique fantasy world. The world building is memorable along with the characters. The plot pertains to two sisters different but yet the same, beauty is a big aspect to this royal family that's destined for arranged marriages.

The character's are well developed but at times the story becomes dull with predictable elements. Later in the story.

WOW. One heck of a fantastic book! Multifaceted characters that were realistic & anything but stereotypical, gorgeous writing, yummy fantasy kingdom politics, poignant themes, & awesome feminist undertones. Just utterly fantastic altogether. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Can I have the sequel now, please?

xxjenadanxx I've been back and forth on whether to read this one but I'm sure I'm gonna add it to my list lol. 3mo
Jess_Franzino @xxjenadanxx You must read it, for sure! One of the best written books I‘ve read this year. 3mo
TheBookKeepers Agree! So impressed with this debut author & I'll be pre-ordering the sequel!! 3mo

Jess_Franzino @TheBookKeepers I‘m doing that same! There was so much nuanced brilliance in the book that I‘ll likely read it again. I was super impressed by how she wrote Ceren. He was chilling because he was so multi-faceted. 3mo
TheBookKeepers Yes! I‘m hoping that since he has been drinking her blood, he has the ability to heal himself and we get to see more of him in the next book! 🙏🙏🙏 I really feel like he maybe the misunderstood villain and perhaps his brother is the villain in disguise! 3mo
Jess_Franzino @TheBookKeepers I think he‘s Dead Dead, sadly. I love Talin and think he‘s complex as well, but Ceren is just such so creepy! It‘s his subtly, ability to charm, & belief that he‘s “doing the right thing” which makes him so. I‘m wondering if he‘ll seem Dead for most of the next book, since Nor‘s traveling, but then when she returns to New Castle, he‘s like “hi.” 😂 3mo
TheBookKeepers Hahaha yes! Gaw, need book 2 ASAP 👁👁 3mo
Jess_Franzino @TheBookKeepers For real! Ugh. Series are such a double edge sword! It‘s like “Yay! More!” but also “And now I have to wait a year”. 3mo

I devoured this book and can‘t wait for the next installment! It grasped my attention quickly and I couldn‘t put it down! The worldly descriptions allowed me to feel immersed in the tale & I was impressed with the complex characters. I‘m kinda in love with the villain of this story the most. Fans of YA & fantasy will enjoy this one!

kellyann28 Definitely will add this to my TBR! 3mo
TheBookKeepers Good bc I need to talk theories with someone about book 2! Hahaha @kellyann28 3mo

Ok so who else has casted a favorite character while reading a book?! Lol. It hit me this morning that Joseph Morgan would be an epic choice to play Ceren! Swoon! Have you read this book & agree or disagree with my choice? Or tell me of a book character + actor/actress you‘ve casted! Hoping I‘m not the only one who does this 😂😅

Jess_Franzino Almost done with this book (had a VERY scant amount of reading time over the past 4 days). Soooo good! Hm. This actor looks a bit too healthy for Ceren and his hair isn‘t long & pale enough. He actually looks a bit like how I picture Talin 😃 3mo

“Hiding our scars doesn‘t mean they‘re not there. Just as beauty cannot disguise who we really are beneath the surface.”

Really loving the atmospheric descriptions in this book! About half way through.
