    Brilliant, vibrant debut fantasy!

    I absolutely love fantasy of all kinds, and the offerings in YA fantasy have been utterly phenomenal the past 5 or 6 years that I’ve been reading them. Naturally, I immediately added Crown of Coral and Pearl to my TBR list when I first heard about it, and then jumped at the chance to be part of this blog tour. This is one of those books that I expected to like going in, but was not prepared for how quickly I was sucked in and just how much I loved it! I was hooked into this story from pretty much the first words, and I mean that honestly. It’s not uncommon for me to have to read a few chapters to warm up to a story, especially from a new-to-me author, but that was not the case here at all! I started reading it before bed one night and before I knew it, it was 2 hours later and I was almost 70% done! I just could not stop reading, so immersed was I in the world that Ms. Rutherford created. The world-building is excellent, and I could picture Varenia and Ilara, Old Castle and New Castle, and the Port Market in my head perfectly. The characters are all vibrant and feel so real, especially, of course, Nor and Zadie. These twin sisters are a force to be reckoned with! Brothers Talin and Ceren are as different as Nor and Zadie are alike, and this contrast between the two pairs of siblings is fascinating. There are twists and turns galore here, too, including a rather shocking ending--though I have a feeling things may not have truly ended how we think they did, and I now cannot wait for the sequel to hit my hands! Seriously, there is just so much amazingness (is that a word?) to this story and I am so ready to dive back in (no pun intended) to the world with which Ms. Rutherford has gifted us. I refuse to give any spoilers to this amazing story, so I want to stop before I say too much, but I promise that if you like fantasy--especially involving strong young women, dashing princes, daring adventures, and plot twists galore--you will love Crown of Coral and Pearl! Please do let me know how you like it once you pick it up yourself! Rating: 5 stars for this brilliant debut! **Disclosure: I received an early e-copy of this book for purposes of this blog tour. This review is voluntary on my part and reflects my honest rating and review.

    wowwwww...just wow

    The character development between the twin sisters was amazing. The main character was headstrong and brave. I really loved the ocean setting and the imagery it came along with... Just stunning in my head. But i felt like the story only got exciting when she arrived in the castle for me... The adventure was fun but i felt like plotwists got chucked in the last three chapters
