A gorgeous contemporary novel set in Tasmania, To the Sea was the perfect holiday read for me. Told in multiple points of view over the days between Christmas and New Year's Eve, it conveys a beautiful story spanning generations.

We meet the Kennett family on the day they discover that Zoe -- beautiful, daring, and fearless Zoe -- is missing, most likely drowned within sight of their ancestral coastal home. Though we meet them first without him, it's detective Inspector Anthony Vincent who brings us closer to this grieving family. Tony stood apart for me because he's so different from...

Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

November 22, 2016 Reviews 0 ★★★★

I enjoyed Aerie a lot. It’s different enough from Magonia that it doesn’t suffer from second-book syndrome but keeps true to the things I loved about the first instalment. I’ll be back for more (if there is more!) and recommend it to those who enjoyed Magonia or like Neil Gaiman’s works.
