YA/Fantasy book club review

Amie Kaufman transports you to a world of adventure and politics centered around a war between gods. The Alinorish and Macean empires have never gotten along well, especially now that the prince of Alinor is late to his Quarterly sacrifice. The development of character relations draws you into a will they won't they state of mind between a merchant sailor and royalty, with their intelligent and begrudging third wheel. Add  ruthless sibling trying to prove their worth, and a reluctant accomplice on their tail, the chase of a lifetime will change their world forever. 

A quaint and fun, easy read entwined with a journey of discovery. Amie Kaufman did it again. 

Publisher's review

Selly has saltwater in her veins. So when her father leaves her high and dry in the port of Kirkpool, she has no intention of riding out the winter at home while he sails to adventure in the north seas. But any plans to follow him are dashed when a handsome stranger with tell-tale magician's marks on his arms commandeers her ship under cover of darkness: He is Prince Leander of Alinor, and he needs to cross the Crescent Sea without detection so he can complete a ritual on the sacred Isles of the Gods.

Selly has no desire to escort a spoiled prince anywhere, and no time for his entitled demands or his good looks. But what starts as a leisure cruise will lead to acts of treason and sheer terror on the high seas, bringing two countries to the brink of war, two strangers closer than they ever thought possible and two dangerous gods stirring from centuries of slumber...
