Definitely recommend this series to fantasy fans. I don't feel like it matters THAT much in which order you read Waters of Salt and Sin and Plains of Sand and Steel (just read them both before the 3rd book!). They are more companion novels that can stand side by side.
What a story, you guys! It's a lush fantasy, which combines old world mythology with a plot that twists through political intrigue, a looming, inevitable invasion and a main character just beginning to understand her power. Now that my son's high school graduation is over and all the year-end recitals have ended, I finally, FINALLY have time to read! The first book I picked up was Plains of Sand and Steel, and I finished it in 24 hours!
I know that usually you guys find me complaining about lack of tension in a plot. Well, there was plenty of it here. I'm not quite sure what kind of spell Alisha weaves that lulls the reader into completely falling into her story. Is it the strong main character, who is coming into her powers? Is it the well written side characters? Is it just the right amount of snark thrown in for good measure? Or is it the romance (whoa, caliente!)? The answers is all of the above.
Alisha's world building makes you think back to ancient civilizations - a nod to maybe Turkish or Greek or Middle Eastern cultures of old. But, it's still fantasy, so there's a richness of detail (but, not overly so) in describing places and people that seemly vaguely familiar from my history books.
In summer, I mostly read contemporary stories, but my undying love for fantasy always leads me to pick up a high fantasy or two. If you're like me, add Plains of Sand and Steel to your summer TBR. It's definitely a book for fans of Sabaa Tahir, Marie Lu, Amy Tintera and Sarah J Maas.
The characters were remarkable. It was so hard to not feel what the characters were feeling at the time. Seren had to do a lot of fighting and clawing to win battles with not just herself but with others who were against her. I also felt bad for Ona too. She was such a complex character with her own set of demons and was constantly fighting. I actually felt what these characters felt.
The story-line was fabulous. All the secrets and demons in this story really kept me wanting to know more and see how things would turn out in the end. The words just flowed off the pages to me and I felt as if my imagination could travel right along with the characters in the story. This was my favorite of the three stories and I highly recommend it.
The author provided me with a digital ARC copy of the book for review purposes only. No remuneration was exchanged.
