Magic, medicine, religion and war stand side by side as the final pieces move into place to determine the fate of Grace Loray.

“The Divided Shores” follows our favorite band of rebels after the events of book 1 where hatred is breeding violence at the hand of the King and Lu is forced to come to the truth about her father. As the tides of the war change allies must be forged in the strangest of places and as each island falls the fate of Grace Loray will be revealed.

I really love all of the mai

1. These Rebel Waves ★★★

What a wild ride the Stream Raiders duology was. I'm not going to lie: I was hoping that this installment would bring some piratey seafaring adventures, but unfortunately, that's not the story this duology is telling. (15/10 would read a spinoff adventure with Teo the raider, though!) If you enjoy complex political revolutionary stories filled with political intrigue, colonization, oppression, war, disillusionment, and religious fervor then thi

(Disclaimer: I received this book from Edelweiss. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

TW: Torture, drug use

Sometimes I forget that sequels are coming, and having been absolutely swept away by These Rebel Waves, I forgot that we needed an amazing sequel. Until I saw it on Edelweiss and was like, "OMG YES, I knew I needed this!" And These Divided Shores is everything I wanted and more. These Divided Shores throws us straight into the fray. Picking up moments after These R

Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for an ARC of this novel. All opinions are, as always, my own.

These Divided Shores picks up a couple weeks after the previous novel; Lu and Ben are being held captive by their fathers and being forced to work on permanent magic. Vex believes Lu is dead and decides to stage a jail break to free Kari, Lu’s mother and an important political figure on Grace Loray. Vex, Kari, and a host of other syndicate leaders form a tenuous truce to try to rid their island

I can't believe this series is over! I only figured out it was a duology at 95% in. This is honestly one of my favourite series ever (and since I didn't really like Ice Like Fire, that's majorly surprising.) I'm already in withdrawals.

I would genuinely read another two books, just of Ben and Gunnar redeeming Argrid and Lu, Vex, Nayeli, and Cansu sorting out Grace Loray. I'm gonna miss these characters so much. And the world full of botanical magic and pirates and politics! And the various people
I immediately fell in love with These Rebel Waves when I started reading it last year, and after that ending I couldn't wait to read the sequel. These Divided Shores, second and last book of the series, left the same impression with me. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop, I still want to keep reading it even though it's over.

This one is definitely darker than book one because while they were mostly trying to avoid another war, in These Divided Shores the war is here. There are a lot of fig
**I voluntarily read and reviewed a review copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.**

I read These Rebel Waves about a year ago as an ARC and I was thrilled to also receive These Divided Shores, the second and final book in this duology from Blazer+Bray.

Unfortunately I didn't have time to reread These Rebel Waves before I picked this one up, and I'm afraid that definitely had an adverse impact on my reading experience; there is little to no rehashing about the events from book on

Thank you Harper Collins for the free copy via edelweiss. I fell in love with Lu and Vex in the first book. They were not enough to save this one. I felt it was too drawn out and too depressing. There were some interesting reveals but i kept waiting for it to be over and for them to get a happy ending.

These Divided Shores is basically a SciFi novel about rebellion and insurgency with magical plants in place of technology and frigates, schooners, and steam-powered ships instead of space ships. It is, at heart, a recycled story of oppression of group of “less powerful” people by a tyrannical, rich, powerful leader or power. For the sake of this novel, the “power” looks remarkably like the Catholic Church, complete with a pope-like eminence/ruler, saints and their namesake places, and frequent e ...more

How long was it gonna be until someone told me there was a title and cover for this sequel to These Rebel Waves?

And after that massive cliffhanger on the first book too!

I wanna see some major-league ass-kicking in this book, too. Reylo-grade ass-kicking. We all know Raasch can make it happen!
