Originallyublished on The Nerd Daily Review by Nathalie DeFeliceBefore I start this is a review of the second and final book in the Stream Raiders duology so lease read the first book before you continue It s an amazing read and lucky you you won t have long to wait to read the end if you start it nowSo with that said let s get into this review The riveting conclusion to These Rebel Waves is here and man is it going to leave a mark review The riveting conclusion to These Rebel Waves is here and man is it going to leave a mark you re finished with it There s a lot
pressure building into this conflict and I was definitely here for it It s a clash of magic and religion and at the center of it are Ben Lu and Vex There were teeth gnashing moments where anything can happen and I think readers will devour it just as I did I would also warn that if you are triggered by torture this might not be the book for youWe begin where These Rebel Waves left off and that is with the capture of Ben and Lu who are now Elazar s risoners being forced to make a weapon to harness Grace Loray s magic Escape is inevitable unless Lu becomes the Lignin Biodegradation person she never wanted to be again Vex on the other hand is free but his shaking sickness is getting worse However he throws himself intolotting the rebellion against Argrid through the aid of the stream raider syndicates Finally Ben is determined to end his father s rampage but unfortunately it seems he s going to have to lay the game his father s way in order to winFrom the beginning of this second book I felt like things were dire Our beloved characters are in direOf Pressure Building Into This
straits and it seems things are only going to get worse before they get better Lu especiallyand it seems things are only going to get worse before they get better Lu especially facing some incredibly terrible things and my heart went out to her Despite all the trauma though there is still a softness that I feel that Ms Raasch managed to capture within her She was forced to become something she was never meant to be from a young age but when faced with the burden of having to don the role again decides that she must embody the change that needs to happen in the world Now whether it s for good or bad I can t say because of spoilers but all I will say is that my heart went out to LuBen s journey is also one that is rendered with hardship and the conflict with his father is coming to a head It s from Ben s erspective that I think readers get to see of the internal religious struggle of a young man who s lost his faith but also understands how completely dismantling the system could have traumatic conseuences Of all the characters he embodied the most caring spirit in my opinion I also felt like he had the softest of love interests despite his rough exteriorVex certainly struggled with a lot of things and because I would spoil the story if I talked about it I ll stop here However I will say that I loved how his relationship with Edda and Nayeli was explored in depth Edda. The thrilling seuel to These Rebel Waves full of deadly magic double crosses and a revolution from Sara Raasch the bestselling author of the Snow Like Ashes seriesAs a child she committed unforgivable acts to free Grace Loray from King Elazar of Argrid Now Elazar’s The Lady and the Lionheart plan to retake the island has surpassed Lu’s darkest fears he’s holding her and his son Ben captive in an endlessly shiftingrison forcing them to ma. ,
S especially felt heartwarming I felt like his crew came off as rough raider s ready to blow everything out of the water in the first book but seeing this new side to them really helped round them out I felt that Nayeli grew the most and her relationship with Cansu definitely blossomed into a complicated romanceWith all the intense conflicts happening in this story it s hard to imagine the romance being anything else And yet the romances in this story rovided this soft respite that I think readers need before they continue on this story of war Each relationship is cultivated on eual terms in my opinion and they help each other grow and understand the world in a new Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church perspective I honestly wish there were some fan art out there because I am all for these relationshipsI felt that theacing was good although some readers might disagree with me There s a lot of density within the book that needs to be A (kinda) Country Christmas processed and while I m a reader that tends torocess the whole of a book once I ve finished it some might need to set the book down to think about what they ve read before they continue on One thing that I Did Have Trouble did have trouble and sometimes had to go back and read again was the erspective shifting It s not as clear as other books would be with a separate chapter but it s also like this in These Rebel Waves so I wasn t completely taken by surpriseThis book is a 910 for me It s an exceptional story and a great end to this duology I loved the characters and their journeys although they could be a little hard to read at times Like I said if you re easily triggered by torture this might not be the book for you However if this doesn t deter you I encourage you to ick up this book It s such a great addition to any shelf and I can t wait for it to come out These Divided Shores was such an entertaining book I am so happy that it didn t fall to the second book syndrome I was also really surprised by the secrets that came out in this one Like holy crap Tom is a sneaky son of a bitchIn it we still get the lovable characters from the revious book Even though I just read the first book yesterday it didn t seem like time really jumped while diving into this one Yes there are still hints of war and betrayal Yet I was there for the romance as wellI AM SO HAPPY FOR MY SHIPS GUYS Also Ben definitely stepped up in this book Not even mad about his love interest either Long story short I definitely enjoyed this book and now I m really sad that it s over with "No idea what I will do with my life since I wont get another book "idea what I will do with my life since I wont get another book this series maybe I ll have to reread it all over again next year 35 stars These Divided Shores is the second and final book in the Stream Raiders Duology and after how much I enjoyed the first book I was excited to see how the story would continue Unfortunately I was left a little disappoin.
