A shorter piece than the first, but just as action packed and brimming with adventure, The Storms of Tarshish found it's way into my reading pile as I perused new reading material. I am always hesitant with second books in a series, always worrying I will be dissapointed by forced character developments or dry plots, but The Storms of Tarshish did NOT disappoint!
A feisty Blake Barber and Mia Devlin set sails in the Caribbean in aims to locate Blake's ever so elusive uncle. Finding themselves caught up in extravagant schemes of drug lords, human trafficking, and terrorism, our main characters are pushed to their physical and mental limits. Uncle Arctica dealt with themes about coming of age and discovering independence, but as Blake grows older the world becomes less about whether you are a child or an adult, and more about whether you have what it takes to make it out of trouble alive. Blake must wrestle with not only the greater dangers writhing around him on the open seas, but also with the monsters within himself as his physical state, faith, love, and loyalty are put against great odds.
The style in which this book is written is tantalizing and the language rolls off ones tongue. The word choice is not only enjoyable, but also refreshing in the sense that Drew Harmon does not try too hard to force synonyms into a paragraph. Each word has a specific purpose which is important to the way in which the story presents itself.
I love this book and I can't wait for more from Drew Harmon. I recommend this book to anyone who wants an exciting and captivating story to light up their imagination (even if it darkens their perception of humanity).
