The Isles of the Gods by Amie Kaufman

The Story


Selly has salt water in her veins. So when her father leaves her high and dry in the port of Kirkpool, she has no intention of riding out the winter at home while he sails off to adventure. But any plans to follow him are dashed when a handsome stranger with tell-tale magician’s marks on his arm commandeers her ship. He is Prince Leander of Alinor and he needs to cross the Crescent Sea without detection so he can complete a ritual on the sacred Isles of the Gods.

Selly has no desire to escort a spoiled prince anywhere, and no time for his entitled demands or his good looks. But what starts as a leisure cruise will lead to acts of treason and sheer terror on the high seas, bringing two countries to the brink of war, two strangers closer than they ever thought possible and stirring two dangerous gods from centuries of slumber…

My Thoughts: The Isles of the Gods

Sleeping gods. Countries on the brink of war. A girl who loves the sea, who has a hidden secret and a prince who may not be ready to save the world, fans of Kaufman will enjoy The Isles of the Gods another action packed story young readers won’t want to miss.

This is the first book I’ve read that was written only by Amie Kaufman. I’ve read her co-author novels, which I’ve completely enjoyed. It’s always interesting to see an author take their craft and hone it for themselves. Creating new and intriguing stories filled with a diverse cast of characters (both villains and heroes alike) that will further young readers joy of reading.

With an unexpected ending, and questions still left unanswered, I’m eager to see what Kaufman has in store for us in the sequel.

Happy Reading ~ Cece
