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 ou

I love pirates, but have been let down with a lot of the pirate-type books! However, here is one that totally changed my mind! I'll also add that the cover is one of my favorites of the year!

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 on

July 25th Edit!

WE HAVE A COVER!!! And I'm absolutely obsessed with it. It's also available for pre order. There will be a pre order campaign, with details to be announced soon.


Now that ARCs are beginning to circulate, I also wanted to hop on here and talk about some of the content warnings in this book. Skip now, if you don't want to read them:

Violence and Death: There are 7 main forms of magic in this book. One of the most commonly used ones is violent in nature, requiring blood//>Violence

So I loved this bloody book—the main character is Scarlett O’Hara incarnate. Amora is fierce and able to take care of herself, and her magic is extraordinary. ALL THE STARS AND TEETH is a sweeping, magical tale filled with pirates, a whip smart mermaid, a princess thirsting to prove herself and protect her kingdom, and a soft cinnamon roll boy who captured my heart. Everyone is fleshed out, with engaging personalities and distinct voices.

And the magic. It’s different and bloody and extraordinar

This book was so much fun to read!! 4.5 stars. It gripped my from the first chapter and was just in a constant state of motion, keeping my jumping from one page to the next like my life depended on it.

Amora Montara has spent her life training to become the heir of the High Animancer of Visidia, the master of soul magic. To secure her position, she must put on the most important demonstration of her life. But when that goes disastrously wrong, Amora forges a deal with the dashing, mysterious, an

I adore Bastian the pirate so much. The swoon was just right for a YA. The magic was interesting and the mythological creatures were a great addition to the story. The MC started off a little rigid but the author gave you so many range of emotions that it really helped develop the character. I gave this story 5 stars and highly recommend it.

The cover on this book is gorgeous and I can’t wait to see the finished book. It’s a debut novel perfect for fans of YA fantasy. It has pirates, princesses and of course magic. It’s definitely got some gory parts but I found the MCs magic fascinating as well. This was advertised as vicious but alluring and I tend to agree

I was fortunate enough to receive an early draft of All the Stars and Teeth. I'll definitely review again when I get my hands on the final, published version, but I must say, this is an EXCELLENT work!

I'm a really slow reader by nature; I mostly listen to audiobooks because motivation is tough for me otherwise. I did NOT have that problem with this book. It's a really rare thing for me to come across a book that I truly just can't put down. The pacing of ATSAT hooked me. I got so emo

With a title like that, I knew I wanted to read this book. Plus, it has magic, princesses forced to flee, and pirates. It sounded like an amazing fantasy book and I definitely wanted to give it a try. Trigger warnings: mentions of sexual abuse, death, violence, emotional and physical abuse

First off, this world is absolutely fantastic. Some of the descriptions of the sea, of the different islands, from the ones that are destroyed, to the ones that are thriving, were so absolutely gorgeo

I really enjoyed the dark plot of this. One person is only allowed to possess one kind of magic in this world however people start to feel “greedy” and start practicing other magic. Princess Amora is incarcerated on her coronation and broken out of jail by Bastian and learns the world she knows is turned upside down. On a journey to fight for her kingdom she uncovers Secrets, hidden curses, mermaids, and creatures she once only thought of as legends. Everything is written so well in t
