Magic of Blood and Sea is one of my favorite books, and I had this novel, its companion, on my TBR for years. I guess I didn't have too many expectations, but I was hoping for something different. ...more

“As he hummed, a glow brightened inside of him, and he was illuminated like a magic-cast lantern, pale blue light competing with the Mists brightness.”

3 Stars.

While I really enjoyed this book it was nowhere near as good as Magic of Blood and Sea was. I liked the story itself yet the ending was rushed and quick. It was enjoyable and had potential, but lacked some depth for me.

I was not sure if I would like this book considering what I felt about Clarke's other series set in this world. So imagine my surprise when I found myself liking it better.

I will admit that this duology didn't intrigue me as much as Blood and Sea. For one, there weren't any pirates or assassins. I was worried I would be bored, but something I noticed almost immediately was how different the writing was!

Part of what bothered me about Ananna's series was tha

I was a bit disappointed with this. I just can't handle the keeping information from the main character trope anymore. She asks continuously what is going on-- told it is so adult, only for it to be so silly. The main character walks off and is like starting a life... I just got a bit bored with it :/

This duology was as good as the Magic of Blood and Sea one with The Assassin's Curse and The Pirate's Wish. It was great rereading an updated and revised version of The Wizard’s Promise and finally being able to read the unreleased The Nobleman’s Revenge in this Magic of Wind and Mist.

Everything fell into place while I was reading and I found myself liking the characters and the adventures even more this time around, and I was happily surprised to see a small cameo from Ananna and Naji! I wante

This book seems charming enough, but I don't have the patience for it right now.

It's a thick book. At 80 pages in, this is what has happened: Hanna, our main character, has been taken by her fisherman mentor to an island. He did this without consulting her or letting her know what's going on. At this island, they picked up another person. Now they are sailing again. No one will tell Hanna where they are going or why, because .... I don't know. Hanna has also made contact with a beautiful boy who

I have been waiting for this book for four years since I read The Wizard's Promise. I loved the Assasin's Curse books by Cassandra Rose Clarke and I couldn't wait to see how this new duology in the same universe would end.

In Magic of Wind and Mist, Hanna is a fisherman's apprentice with dreams of becoming a skilled witch and having adventures like the ones her mother had as a pirate. She gets what she asked for when a normal fishing trip turns into something much more dangerous, but it's nothin
I read the first half of this duology years ago and really liked it, though I didn't actually remember anything more about it by this point. Still, I really liked the first book again, and was very excited to get the rest of Hanna's story, The second book felt rushed and clunky it lost itself somewhere along the way. I couldn't feel the romance (though I can appreciate the role reversal there in an academic sense), and Trystan...I didn't totally get him, or An ...more

Je ne l'ai pas fini.
Je me suis arrêtée après ce qui m'a semblé être le cinquantième revirement de l'héroïne, une ado en espèce de stage dans un bateau avec un pêcheur dans un royaume fantastique, et qui se retrouve plus ou moins obligée de suivre ce pêcheur après une tempête pour qu'il retrouve son premier amour, une reine d'un pays lointain.

The book does a great job of expanding this world and I really liked Hanna as a character. She was so practical and every decision she made was met with my "yasss". Hanna acts the way I would in this situation which was very gratifying. However, I was ultimately disappointed in this book. I felt like it didn't live up to the amazingness that was The Assassin's Curse and The Pirate's Wish. That could also just be me because Naji and Ananna were so great it was hard to live up to them, (view spoil ...more

I didn't fall in love with this one like I did Clarke's first duology but I still liked it a lot! The beginning third was a bit frustrating, because everyone was keeping things from Hanna and they claimed it was better that way, even though that never works out well for anyone. It did get better though. I liked that this book explored a different part of the world than the first duology; it was really cool to see what the Mists are actually like. The main characters were okay, I just didn't feel ...more

It was years ago that I read the Wizard's Promise when it was under a publisher called Strange Chemistry? i think. Hannah's story was unfinished when the publishers went out of business, so I was super excited when I found out Magic of Wind and Mists was the continuation and combination of the previous story in one. I loved the story and the world then and after finishing this book, I kind of miss it already. It was great seeing a cameo of the characters from Assassin's Curse. Though some critic ...more

I enjoyed this book and it kept me reading through to the end. However, it felt a little cobbled-together, like three books in one. It also started quite slowly, as if it was trying to figure out where it wanted to go. As someone who's started writing and then come back to a lot of stories, it felt a bit like the author began the book and it evolved on her through writing. I'm not sure I'll read anymore in the series, but the overall feeling of the book was calm, fresh, cool, and interesting - a ...more

Exceptional character development and world building, and I very much enjoyed the main protagonist and agreed with her choices and feelings. The pacing of the story, however, is what ruined it for me. The story was very slow (which can be ok) until the end, at which point it felt like all of the action in the entire story was crammed into 100 pages. Further, the great villain anticipated throughout the book was defeated with relative ease... which is always quite a let down.
Overall, worth the r

My initial impressions from the other duology are long gone. But I expected more from this story. The synopsis provided me with a in depth look into...the first bit of book one and all of book two. I feel like there's a huge gap between what the book promised, and a combination of everything received when I read it.

The story was very slow. And the romance, considering the amount of time the couple spent together, felt rushed. I would've loved to have seen it develop a little more before it bloss

A good young adult fantasy book. (A rare find). I didn't even think of it as YA until I was half way through when the main character did something unusually stupid. I enjoyed the world building although there were times when I think the story could have moved more quickly, but perhaps this added to the texture of the story. ...more
I give this book a solid 3 stars. I did enjoy the story, but it didn't captivate me like the previous duology by Cassandra. I kept finding myself missing the excitement. There were also a bunch of typos, almost like it wasn't looked over carefully. ...more

This was a decent connecting side story/follow-up to Magic of Blood And Sea (The Assassins Curse + The Pirates Wish). Though I cant honestly say that I personally enjoyed it as much as I did Magic of Blood and Sea.

I so wanted to love this, Hanna is such a great character and I loved the relationship between her and Isolfr and their friendship, but I felt that they were not deep enough. We found out about the details we had to, but not enough extras that made them come to life. Additionally, the plot was long winded for the first part of the book, so releasing this as a duology was a necessity in that respect. There were parts of the books where I felt it was a long tangent that was important for Hanna's c ...more
