I was lucky enough to read an early draft of this book because the and i LOVED IT
Picture Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road leading her own Pirates Of The Carribean Ship
This epic sea adventure empowering as hell, exciting, bloody, and it takes no prisoners! It's also powerful--there are parts of this books that gave me goosebumps.
I can't WAIT to read the final draft and then I can't wait for everyone else to read it so we can geek out about it together!!
yes, its full of tropes and predictable material, but THE ADVENTURE! its fun, its fresh, its exciting. the entire journey of the story is what kept me hooked. it made me long for a life where i sail the seven seas, and i hate the ocean, so thats saying something. lol. with mermaids, pirates, legendary sea monsters, and blood magic, there is never a dull moment. yes, the adventure could be ...more
Amora was pretty freaking awesome! I easily connected with her and what she was going through and had to face! Then there were the boys! I loved Bastian and Ferrick, especially Bastion, though! And Vataea has my heart! She was vicious and lovable at the same time! The bond between the crew was one that I ...more

“i am amora montara, princess of visidia, and i will be the future high animancer. i am the right choice. the only choice. and i will protect my kingdom.”
this book is full of MAGNIFICENT characters and DANGEROUSLY FUN adventures. sadly, it didnt deliver. well, not quite. or maybe it's just me being awfully fussy considering this book is pretty hyped and the average rating as of now is relatively high. the bottom line is; im not as impressionable to ya fantasies as i used to, so for future ...more

It's official! All The Stars And Teeth is my first 5 star read of the decade! I had a feeling I would love this when I first heard the synopsis, but I had no idea just how much this book would mean to me!
If you've added this to your TBR's because one of your buzz-words is pirates, mermaids, or sea creatures- I don't think you'll be disappointed! The magic in this is also unique from anything I've ...more
I could not (read: would not) put this book down. From start to finish, I was hooked into this fantasy tale full of pirates, soul-magic wielding princesses, and mermaids! Amora was a riveting character, full of vicious determination and iron will. She’s not going to let fear keep her from saving her kingdom. Plus, if you like roguishly handsome pirates with a chip or two on their shoulder, then it’s safe to say you’re going to ...more
I’m getting To Kill A Kingdom vibes and I’m living for it so far!
Don’t let me down Goodreads!
CW: general violence, menstruation, and sexism
I was totally surprised by this book! It was a great debut that swept me up into the world and, damn, I wish that the second book was already here because I wanna see where the second book goes.
Admittedly, my brain spaced out during the beginning stuff (which happens to me at times) so I missed some of the worldbuilding and the whole reason for the journey. I hadn't been ...more

A rich debut fantasy with a vulnerable yet cut-throat cast of characters.

Amora has been training all her life to ascend the throne and claim her rightful place as High ...more
"Fear is part of life; all that matters is what we do with it."
Bloody, exciting, and magical, All the Stars and Teeth bursts with violent life, and death. When Princess Amora is imprisoned after losing control of her dangerous magic, she escapes with the help of a pirate, her stowaway fiancee, and a powerful mermaid.

Ok. So Wow. What a debut. Seriously..I can't wait for book 2!!!
Right from the beginning I was drawn in and so curious about the magic system. There are different islands and the islands represent different types of magic:
Arida: Soul magic
Valuka: Elemental magic
Mornute: Enchantment magic
Curmana: Mind magic
Kerost: Time magic
Suntosu: Restoration magic
Thanks to Edelweiss and Imprint for an ARC in exchange for an honest review!
Every part of this book was so beautiful. I enjoyed it from the very beginning.
We follow the spoiled and almost ignorant Princess of Visidia right before the she is to be crowned the heir by passing a test of her soul magic. To say things go different than planned is an understatement and we find ourselves on a pirate ship sailing to the different islands of the county. By the way, all these islands with ...more
I have been DYING to read All the Stars and Teeth since I first got wind this book was going to be published. A YA fantasy revolving around pirates, mermaids, and magic?! Not to mention, when I saw the cover reveal, I was like GIMME GIMME GIMME!
For the inhabitants of Visidia, they are able to choose one type of magic to wield. For Amora, she has never had a choice. She will practice soul magic. Soul magic is the deadliest form of magic and is only practiced by the royal ...more
