The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This was okay, but I had some issues. The scenes seemed too short to me, as if they could have had more depth. I can’t quite put my finger on what my issue is, though. The lines are there, the descriptions are there, but it feels like something is missing. That’s how I feel about the book overall. Based on the premise, it could have been very intriguing, but the pacing was off. The romance also fell flat for me, enough so that I often forgot it was supposed to be a romance. It might sound silly considering there’s an entire shipwreck, but I wanted more danger and near-death experiences in this book. It also felt too long in the end; I just wanted to be finished with it.
I’ll definitely read more from Klassen, but this one unfortunately fell a little short for me.
