I’m really not sure why but I kept on putting this book down for a long time. I guess I was just too drawn into reading contemporaries that I forget how great fantasy novels can be.

This book was super interesting, the first few chapters were cool especially the part where the world and the concept of traveling were being established but somehow the pacing fell apart in the middle.

The characters were really interesting as well. I love Nix and her whole personality. Her relationship with his father is a little rocky and it often shifts from daughter to a first mate kind of relationship. Aboard Temptation, her father was the Captain. I really enjoyed the major conflict of the book, wherein Nix’s father was trying to get the map that could ultimately erase her existence and I’m so amazed on how it was resolved.

Kashmir was definitely my favorite. He’s pretty smooth and I found him really lovely yet boldly brave at the same time. I definitely enjoyed the chemistry between him and Nix. I also adored Bee’s character and the fact that this book didn’t shy away from queer characters makes me love it more.

Heidi Heilig’s writing style is one of a kind. I definitely enjoyed the cultural aspects and historical backgrounds tackled in the book. I’m just a little sad that I wasn’t able to see the maps since I read the ARC but luckily, I won a swag giveaway which included one of the maps and I TOTALLY LOVED IT!!

Also, the book totally reminded me of Pirates of the Caribbean movies which I really loved! I really can’t wait to read the sequel of this book!
Good Points
diverse characters, action packed plot, sweet romance, strong feminist themes
