Aemi is a slave in the Village of Rocks. She dreams of being free. Her mother used to tell her stories of where she came from and Aemi vowed to one day see it. She has heard the stories of the people who live underwater but always thought they were just that, stories. So when her village is attacked and Aemi is captured, along with all the men, she is terrified. Everyone is split up and Aemi ends up sent to the same place as Nol, her nemesis. She is again a slave but this time she has the means and motive to plot her escape. But escape isn't as easy as she thought!
I fell in love with the authors first series and had to try this one. Well I'm so glad I did because she has managed to create another amazing world. Everything about Itlantis was fascinating. The different realms and history were captivating. The author can really pull you in to her writing and make you apart of the world she has created.
Character wise, I really liked all of them but Aemi and Nol were my favourite. Aemi is strong, determined and not afraid to take a chance and Nol started out as a typical spoiled rich kid but I ended up really liking him. He grew a lot during the story.
Plot wise, Of Sea and Stone was relatively fast paced. I loved the idea of a whole civilization residing below the water with no knowledge of what it's like to live above. The unique realms and history behind them were fascinating as was the places themselves. Being book 1 in the series though, we are left with a lot of unanswered questions so I'm hoping we find them out in future books.
Anyway, overall Of Sea and Stone was a captivating read. From it's unique and creative world to it's enchanting setting, Of Sea and Stone is a must read. It has captured my interest and I can not wait to see what happens next! Kate Avery Ellison is fast becoming one of my favourite authors because she has created some amazing worlds and she continues to impress me with each book.
The master is trying to secure peace but someone is trying to blame problems on the Dron, enemies of the Itlanteans for a thousand years. When Celustrus is attacked, and many are killed, it is up to Aemi and the master to uncover the truth.
Nol is an intriguing character. For much of the book you are wondering if he is Aemi's friend, foe, or something else. The life giving kiss of breath he gives her as he pushes her to the surface is both sweet and sad at the same time. It reminded me of Titanic when Jack saves Rose. The last forty pages had my stomach in knots and as soon as I finished I put the next book in the series on my to read list.
Masterful artistry throughout this piece. Highly recommend picking it up.
