Book Review Of “Crown Of Coral And Pearl” By Mara Rutherford @InkyardPress @mararaewrites
Thank you to Inkyard Press for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I give this book a 5 out of 5 Stars.
“I’m the perfect seashell you pick up from the ocean floor, only to turn it over in your hand and see the crack“
I loved it! There was something so light, and addicting to this story. It wasn’t bogged down with darkness. It wasn’t overly detailed and heavy. (Don’t get me wrong I love a good dark and heavy book, but sometimes I need something lighter). Now, don’t go into this thinking it’s going to be light and fluffy, because that’s not the case either. There is some abusive behavior in this book, and the character of Ceren is a pretty hard pill to swallow. But, the story of Zadie and Nor over powers that. I have twin boys, So I always feel an immediate connection to book that feature twins, and their bond.
I love Prince Talin, and I also loved a character named Ebb. She was so sweet, and warm hearted. The perfect addition to this book. The ending of this one, was not at all what I expected, and it almost made me sad. While I wasn’t sure if I liked it, I understood why the Author wrote it in such a way. And I fully support her choice! I cannot wait for book two! I need it, like Yesterday.
