Product description

Product Description

Aemi has a new life beneath the sea in the world of Itlantis, but all is hardly idyllic—her assimilation into Itlantean society is fraught with accusations and rumors, those closest to her are keeping deadly secrets, and most frightening of all, someone is trying to kill her.

Desperate for answers, Aemi and her friends set off to find answers in Arctus, the Ice City, but they might uncover more than they bargained for in the process...

Although in did enjoy this book very much, I'm sad to say it defiantly wasn't as good as the first.
The first thing that really popped out at me was that the first half was very bland and hardly any progress was made, aemi spent the whole first 50% looking for information about her father and barely came up with anything.
The second was nol. I loved their love/hate relationship in the first book, although I think the progression wasn't well laid out, they went from hating each other to randomly liking each other, even though we (aemi) barely know anything about him. However I loved their relationships dynamic so I held out hope for this book. However, this was pretty disappointing. When they're finally with each other again, aemi goes in circles because every time nol makes a comment to the commander to save face she feels betrayed and just keeps going around in circles. And then Nol keeps getting mad at aemi cuz she wants to live with her family, something she's never had before, and live where they were "enslaved" when really they were rescued and although they had to work, it was for a good family. He just seemed to have no sympathy for aemi, she grew up alone without a family and literally has been a slave her entire life, and he's too busy drowning in self pity about the, maybe, one month he got sit around and study. I understand he was upset about his family but every single time he seems to overlook that that is what aemis life has always been like, except WORSE. I'm just really sad because I really liked him in the first book.

Ok, now that all of that's out of the way, I loved the book because of secondary characters and the overall idea of this series. Rob and her teacher are what really save this book for me and I'm defiantly gonna read the next one.

I really enjoy any book written by Kate Avery Ellison! She has a knack for storytelling and it really shows in her books! And the way she describes things and sets the scene for you, it's like you're really there! When I read her Frost series, I was in Florida in the middle of summer and still felt cold whenever I read her books. This series does not disappoint either. She paints a great picture of this gorgeous underwater world and I enjoyed all the twists and turns in the plot.

So this book picks off with Aemi finding out that she a member of one of the richest families in Itlantis and spends the majority of the book investigating her father's death, while still grieving the loss of her friend/maybe-more-than-a-friend Nol. There is also some action because while she is trying to come to grips with her new station in life, her father's death, and missing Nol, someone tries to kill her multiple times! There are some great plot twists in this book and Ellison does a great job at giving us just enough clues to make us ask more questions! It's intriguing and frustrating at the same time. It's a very exciting book and Aemi is a very strong female character who doesn't need a man to help her with anything.

My only complaint would be it felt like she was too strong of a character sometimes...she had a lot of responsibility on her shoulders and she never confided in anyone really. There is a great cast of supporting characters that help her out, which is great, but I felt like she shouldn't have to be the strong one all the time. It felt like Aemi was isolated a lot, which is something I also noticed Ellison did with Lia Weaver in Frost. It felt very lonely... But anyways, this book is still great and the plot moved along nicely although still left us with tons of questions (which I hope get answered in the next book!).
5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first 6 May 2014

The sequel to <i>Of Sea and Stone</i> features Aemi coming to grips with her new life in Primus. She sets out on a quest to learn more about her father and why he was framed for treason, all the while dodging attempts on her life. Meanwhile, the Dron aren't taking too lightly to being attacked by Itlantis' rogue military faction.

This second book continues the story nicely. There is a lot of great action, mystery, and reveals. I really loved the parts about the Dron and I found Aemi's etiquette instructor to be a really fun character. The story is mostly set in Primus with a little bit in Arctus and some in a Dron territory. I hope we learn more about other cities in future books. The story is Aemi-centric and really driven by her exploration of her past and who is trying to kill her. The senate and politicians in the novel continue to be bumbling self-centered bureaucrats, of which Aemi can expect little help.

I really enjoyed this one and looking forward to the next.

"By Sun and Saltwater" continues the story from "Of Sea and Stone" forward. This was an easy read without the insincere love story drama/angst. It's refreshing to read a book where the main characters aren't bemoaning their life circumstances and instead are trying to make the best of themselves and their situations and also showing growth, perseverance, kindness, and bravery despite the difficult circumstances they were placed in. I feel like this book is a good setup for the next book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Decent 2nd book 31 May 2014

I am really enjoying this series as I did her other one. I definitely believe that the book progressed the story line and character development, but it still felt like middle book syndrome (assuming it's a 3 book series planned). I completely understand why it was written that way but came out with more questions than I started. I am greatly looking forward to the next book so that I can learn all the secrets and plot intrigue!!
