Author: Adalyn Grance
Publishing Date: February 4, 2020
Age Category & Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Set in a kingdom where danger lurks beneath the sea, mermaids seek vengeance with song, and magic is a choice, Adalyn Grace’s All the Stars and Teeth is a thrilling fantasy for fans of Stephanie Garber’s Caraval and Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series.
She will reign.
As princess of the island kingdom Visidia, Amora Montara has spent her entire life training to be High Animancer—the master of souls. The rest of the realm can choose their magic, but for Amora, it’s never been a choice. To secure her place as heir to the throne, she must prove her mastery of the monarchy’s dangerous soul magic.
When her demonstration goes awry, Amora is forced to flee. She strikes a deal with Bastian, a mysterious pirate: he’ll help her prove she’s fit to rule, if she’ll help him reclaim his stolen magic.
But sailing the kingdom holds more wonder—and more peril—than Amora anticipated. A destructive new magic is on the rise, and if Amora is to conquer it, she’ll need to face legendary monsters, cross paths with vengeful mermaids, and deal with a stow-away she never expected… or risk the fate of Visidia and lose the crown forever.
I am the right choice. The only choice. And I will protect my kingdom.
All the Stars and Teeth sails perfectly on the waves of a princess determined to save her kingdom, a handsome pirate, astonishing curses, loads of magic, and a romance that makes the characters stronger in their hearts and weaker in their knees. With a complex magic system and several mysteries waiting to be unravelled, the story plays its aces at the right time. Myths, legends, and the truth are all intertwined, which makes all of it more grey than simply distinguishable as black or white. Excitement, action, emotions, and some predictability is what this book offers. A definitive recommendation for those who wish to follow a strong headed princess on an epic sea adventure!
