My name is Savannah and I’m the founder Books With Bite. Books have always found a way to my heart with great literature and adventure. Though I may not be a teen, I wish I could be!
Being swept off my feet by the first book, I knew immediately that I wanted to read this one. I love classics stories. And I love it when authors take a classic and put an amazing spin on it.
Plot: From what I heard, this is an inspire tale of the classic The Scarlet Pimpernel. Though this is one classic I have not read, I certainly enjoyed it very much. The plot begins in a new world were genetic manipulation. Lots of people have suffered. The human race has suffered and the world if slowly crumbling. There are scientists trying to stop whatever damaged they can before it gets worse. And enter Persis Blake. A young aristo who is not who she seems. There are other minor characters who bring many more elements to the story that bring it to life.
Love: Now this one is one I enjoyed watching fully bloom. I love that this love is based on lies. Now, I know what your thinking. But Savannah, I thought you hate liars. Don’t worry, I do. But in this case, this lie is HUGE and changes everything. It makes you re-think what you knew about the characters and how AWESOME the character is. I mean, once I pieced it together I never felt so giddy and excited in my life!!
Ending: The ending is wonderfully concluded with much to reflect on. I adore letting all the pieces come together and just watching it live in my mind. Across A Star-Swept Sea is a fantastic story!
