@Gravy where are you in the book? I am halfway through (books are my escape) and enjoy it despite the slow opening.

I am in the little house. Avery just laid down to sleep.
So not quite halfway, but a good start!


I'm liking it. I enjoyed the help-kelp (even if it wasn't that helpful).

I liked the help-kelp too. :)

I finished!


I love how that turned out! I wasn't sure where it was going, but I'm so glad it didn't go the way I thought it was going to. (I thought she was going to be a baddy.)

I kinda hope we get to see one of the drowned cities. I find that whole premise fascinating.

Nice! I liked it too. :)

I rated it 3/4 stars due to the slow start and the cliffhanger. I can't wait for the next book!
