I devoured All The Tides of Fate! I read it in a couple of sitting, one Sunday afternoon, completely engrossed in the story. I enjoyed the first book in this duology, All The Stars and Teeth, where we are first introduced to the characters and the story, but I have to say that I LOVED All The Tides of Fate because both the characters and the plot develop well, much better than I expected, and I was sad when I reached the end (both because the end is heart-breaking and because the story is over).

The protagonist of All The Tides of Fate is Amora Montara, now the new queen of Vividia. Following the events of the first book, the kingdom of Vividia is still healing and Amora is ready to do anything to help it and protect it, even if this means going on a tour of the islands looking for an eligible bachelor who could become her king. In reality, Amora is looking for something, something that will keep her secret hidden from her people and that could break her curse.

I really liked the character of Amora. She is flawed, she doesn’t always make the right choice, and, thanks to the author’s brilliant and captivating writing, her worries, her doubts, her grief feel real and relatable. She is surrounded by a cast of brilliant and entertaining characters. I would love to be part of her crew: Bastian, Ferrick, Vateea, Casem, and Shanty kept me glued to the pages.

All The Tides of Fate is a terrific and riveting story. There is magic and there are pirates and sirens. There are love, friendship, and family. As I mentioned, the ending is heartbreaking but also fantastic and I am already looking forward to Adalyn Grace’s next book!

A huge thank you to Titan Books and NetGalley for providing me with a proof of the novel.
