Book Recommendation: The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas
Oh. I didn't realize how much I needed to re-read these precious books right now. I first read The Perilous Sea last June. And I loved it oh so much. Titus has such a huge piece of my heart. I loved these books back then. But now. Having read this a second time. Oh. My love has grown so much more. I love them even more now. They just get better for each time I read them. And I love that so much. The writing is all kinds of gorgeous. The plot is so exciting. And the characters are the very best. Sigh.
I can't begin to say how much I loved The Perilous Sea. It is such a perfect sequel to The Burning Sky. We get to know so much. And it is so exciting and interesting. Every single thing. Though I was worried to re-read this beauty. Because I remembered the heartbreak. And thought it might bother me this second time. But then. I didn't remember all the details. And it didn't bother me. Sure, it still hurts my heart like crazy, but it lasts so short, and it is done so well. Yeah. I found it to be much more beautiful now.
But how to talk about this book. I just wish to share a bit about why I love it so much. And try my best to convince you all to read it. Because you really should. These two books are perfection. The romance is the very best. But everything else is amazing too. And oh, I just need you all to read these books. If you still haven't read The Perilous Sea, you really must. No need to wait. The ending is sort of cruel, but not that bad. And this book. It's so worth it. You need to love Titus as much as I do. Well, almost as much :D
There are some issues with the romance in this book. But it only lasts for such a small moment of time. And in most of the book the romance is even better and so much more than the first book. Sigh. It truly is the best part. Titus and Iolanthe are the most perfect couple. Sniffs. I love them both so much. And their romance.. it is so gorgeous. I wanted more of it at all times. They are such great friends too. Even though there is heartbreak, they still love each other so much. And it is so sweet. And sad. And perfect.
I shall not discuss much of the plot in this book. Because I can't describe it all. But damn. This book is all over the place. And in the best way. So much is happening. And I loved reading every moment of it. The Bane is stronger than ever. Doing such awful things. There are so many other characters in this book too. And I love them all to pieces. Especially their closest friends. Especially Cooper. He seemed like such a sweet young boy. Curious to know what happens to him after this book. And all the other boys.
We learn a bunch more about Titus and Iolanthe. And I loved that so much. They are the best characters. Well, Titus is still my favorite, but I still adore them both so much. I love how Titus calls her Fairfax most of the time. They are both so damn cute together. And I love the humor in this book. It is funny. And heartbreaking. And stunning. And ugh. Everything that happens in this book is perfection. Despite my small heartbreak. And even that I really loved reading about. Because it all made so much sense.
Sigh. I just cannot talk much about this book. Because I loved every single part of it. I loved reading about Titus. And his mission. And how much he loves his dead mom. And I'm so curious to get to know Dalbert more too, lol, hoping to see him in the third book. And Iolanthe. Sigh. She is just awesome. We learn more about her parents. And I loved that. Though a bit creepy too. Yet oh so awesome. I just love these characters so much. And I want only the best for them. Sniffs. I need more of them, though.
I can't say more about this book. Just that I love it so. And I'm so thrilled that I decided to re-read these two books. Because they are so special to me. And so damn perfect. Thank you for writing them Sherry. <3 You are awesome. But omg. I just do not want Titus to die. Please. I'm all kinds of worried. Ack. But I have hope. Probably. Dying to read The Immortal Heights. Which might happen next week. Oh. See you then. Though I do wish this series would be a whole lot longer than just three books :D Need more Titus.
