Review | The Sunken Realm

amazon Goodreads
Erielle de Gladiel lost everything she’d worked her life to gain. Her commission and livelihood as a knight was gone. Her reputation was in tatters. Her family was embarrassed and ashamed. Now, she’s married a pirate. As if it couldn’t have been worse.

On the verge of losing The Seahorse Legacy, Cazien de Pollis finally yielded to the First and married Erielle. He has chosen to love her and to honor his vows as a husband. With that comes another challenge — finding the boys that have been stolen and are being killed. The boys Erielle herself had been searching for just before their marriage.

Together they can accomplish what neither could alone. Perhaps marriage to Cazien will be an adventure instead of the curse she anticipated.

Hott Review:

What I liked: Only while reading a Serena Chase novel can I laugh hysterically while having tears streaming down my face.
It felt like every word of this book was chosen to speak to my heart. There are so many phrases to keep in your heart found in The Sunken Realm. Not only phrases to remind us of The ONE, but also reminders about who we are and how to be a spouse. Without lecturing, The Sunken Realm gives a clear picture of how to achieve a God-honoring marriage and life.
PLUS, The Sunken Realm is an amazing book that I could read over and over! I’m not into fantasy​ & don’t enjoy pirate books – but a book written by Serena Chase pulls me in every time!
What I didn’t like: Honestly? I’m so sad we’ll not be visiting with these characters again… yet, I’m excited to see what Serena has up her sleeve for the future.

So, the whole time I followed Ereille, the same thing kept running​ through my head. Big Daddy Weave’s song Redeemed. It’s such an honest portrayal of our fight with ourselves against and for a relationship with our Father. We have so much.. we just have to accept the gift.

  1. *hand to heart* thanks Gina, for such a lovely and thoughtful review. And that song! I had never heard that song before, but it is a perfect accompaniment to Erielle’s journey in this book. ♡♡♡
