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.
Set in a kingdom where danger lurks beneath the sea, mermaids seek vengeance with song, and magic is a choice, Adalyn Grace’s All the Stars and Teeth is a thrilling fantasy for fans of Stephanie Garber’s Caraval and Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series.
I really liked All The Stars And Teeth!
It’s a really interesting fantasy, and the beginning of it really does remind me of Throne Of Glass. Amora really wanted to save her kingdom, and I admire what she went through in order to do it.
Her journey takes her all over Visidia, and there’s a lot she doesn’t know. I can understand why her father kept it from her, but I also feel like she made the decisions she did because it was kept from her. Then again, I feel like the book would be a little bit different if she had all of the information.
I loved the adventure, and the unlikely group of people traveling all over the place. I think, if you liked Six Of Crows, you’ll like this book. There’s just something about this group that made me think of them.
Besides, how can you go wrong with a crew that has a mermaid, a pirate, and a stowaway, all captained by a princess? Our fearless mermaid was not in this book enough, but hopefully, we’ll see her more in the next book. I really wish I could remember her name. Or the name of anyone besides Amora. I’m just not good at remembering names, but I really did like everyone. They work pretty well together, and make a good team.
I am wondering how everything relating to Amora’s magic is going to work out. I mean, I’m sure it will, but I’m excited to see how that works itself out.
The descriptions are amazing, and there were quite a few times I just let it sink it. I feel like I’ve read a lot of books lately that have great descriptions, and this is one of them. I could picture things really well as I was reading, and I’m glad we got to see so much of Amora’s world. I really could see each place so well, while also be able to use my imagination a little bit. It was a pretty good balance.
4 stars. I really liked All The Stars And Teeth, and I am really excited about reading the next book.
