WARNING: This review may contain spoilers.
First things first. The Midnight Sea is the first (ever) book of Kat Ross that I’ve read. The book sat on my shelf for about a year already and I haven’t decided on reading it until February 2018. From the first few pages of the book, it captured my attention already. Although, at some point, I got lost a bit because I cannot memorize the names of some characters and places right away so I had to back read a couple of times.
Honestly, I’ve had hesitation before reading the book but my patience to read a little longer got the best of me and I did not regret it! The magical and unique world of Nazafareen had pulled me deeper into the book until the end. The book has a potential. The characters, specifically, Nazafareen has a great impact on me. In my own perspective, her character is strong enough to be the main character of The Midnight Sea. Darius, on the other hand, is also a likable character.
Moreover, the supporting characters have their own distinctive personalities which I found great. The writing style is also simple in which the emotions of the characters are exemplified well. I am glad that the author focuses on the growth of the main characters rather than their thrilling romance. I am sure a lot of Young Adult readers will love The Midnight Sea because it is a mix of action, thrilling and irresistible romance, enthralling plot, and fascinating characters.
Lastly, I really don’t have high expectations about the book but I am glad that the story has surprised me in every way possible. I am hoping to love the second book too which is entitled, Blood of the Prophet. Let me know what you think about this book through the comment section below. 🙂
