    You will never read a book like that !

    I read this book several months ago, but needed time to digest the sheer magic it brought into my life.

    I’ve always had a soft spot for teen novels that can pass for adult fiction and this one is certainly one of them !

    Here, Frances Hardinge delivers a vibrant world-building in this spellbinding fantasy adventure of gods, deep-sea creatures and pirates.

    The inventiveness and richness of the descriptions will allow you to live a thousand stories in one.

    I loved the gentle, ambivalent character of Hark and Selphin (props to Hardinge, when a fan asked her to include a deaf character, not only did she do it but also made her an important character, while taking into account the deaf community’s advices).

    If you’re looking for an immersive read, full of verve and suspense that makes you dream, this one is definitely for you.

    Can’t wait to discover all of her books !
