it was amazing
bookshelves: australian, young-adult

This is a great read. Fast-paced, interesting characters and plenty of action and intrigue. I loved the Perth setting, the dynamic between Sadie and the people she cares about, and the brilliant way Myke Bartlett brings a fresh twist to some creepy ancient mariner myths.

There's a wonderful sense of menace and mystery as this story unfolds, and the last third of Fire in the Sea in particular is an absolute page turner as Sadie races to save her city - and the world.

Very pleased to hear Myke is writing a sequel. I'm keen to know what happens to Sadie and Jake next (and Tom and Kim), given there are a few loose ends still to be tied up.

Favourite moment: when Kim calls the minotaur a 'cow monster'. I laughed out loud.

A noteworthy addition to Australian YA adventure fiction.
