I received a copy of this book free in exchange for an honest review.
This is the third book in a series (“Waters Deep and Dark”) that keeps getting better as it progresses, and this time, I found myself reading the entire book in a single sitting. Ms. Leonelle fills in some of the blanks about her world, and the different plotlines are coalescing into solid threads as it becomes clearer who are allies, who are adversaries, and who’s willing to play both sides against each other — barring any unforeseen plot twists, of course.
The twists and character changes in this installment have been nicely set up by the previous books, though a couple of times I found myself having to go back to one of the earlier novels to refresh my memory of what had happened there.
I have to admit that after reading the first book, I was a bit dubious about the series, but there was enough that I enjoyed and a strong glimmer of promise that made me want to continue. I’m really glad I did.
