Kingdom of Sea and Stone is the sequel to Crown of Coral and Pearl by Mara Rutherford. I want to thank Harper Collins Publishing Australia for the review copy.
Ever since Nor was forced to go to a nearby kingdom in her sister’s place, she’s wanted nothing more than to return to the place and people she loves. But when her wish comes true, she soon finds herself cast out from both worlds, with a war on the horizon.
As an old enemy resurfaces more powerful than ever, Nor will have to keep the kingdom from falling apart with the help of Prince Talin and Nor’s twin sister, Zadie. There are forces within the world more mysterious than any of them ever guessed – and they’ll need to stay alive long enough to conquer them…
Kingdom of Sea and Stone continues straight after Crown of Coral and Pearl finishes and Nor is on her way back to her home when she runs into Zadie.
The relationship that builds between Nor and Talin I couldn’t get enough of and would to read more about their relationship. We definitely see more of the relationship between Zadie and Sami and how they would do anything for their families along with Nor and Talin.
There were strong themes of family in this book as all the main characters have such a strong sense of loyalty to there families that they would fight for them.
The ending of the book was fantastic and I would love another book to hear about Nor’s travels and how her relationship with Talin will continue to grow.
I would definitely recommend this to readers of The Cruel Prince.
