On The Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson Book Review

On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness
Disclaimer: I received this book in exchange of an honest review !

Well, well , well let me start by saying that this was truly a surprising read. this is considered a "Christian" book which to be honest is not obviously so when reading it. As an atheist myself I did not have a problem on the religion side of it, though there is the mention of "Maker" and themes such as forgiveness and faithfulness.

Now  let's talk about the story itself, it was very entertaining. I had a great time reading it and the writing style made  it a quick and captivating read. This is a war story which being fan of history always makes for a great reading time (for me), I did have a little problem with certain events and dialogues as I couldn't understand why certain things had never been mentioned or talked about before that point. The author also has a very distinct humour which might not attract everyone, some of his humour did fall flat at certain times in my case.
Story wise, while this is not a perfect story by any mean, it is a very interesting book. I would also highly recommend it to younger readers that are delving or starting to read YA as this book doesn't contain any graphic or coarse language.

Overall while I had a good time I will not personally continue this series, though I would recommend it to younger readers as I believe I would have enjoyed this a lot more if I had read it when I was around 10 years old.

3/5 stars
