Dark Shores by Danielle L. Jenson Book Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The East Must Never Meet The West. This is a mantra that is heavily passed down in Teriana’s world. She’s a sailor and a trader. Her family is pagan. A religion that is quickly becoming outlawed. A horrible mistake puts her and all of her people at the mercy of people who will stop at nothing to take over the entire world. She finds herself making a deal that goes against everything she stands for. She finds herself in forced company with the soldier who saved her. Marcus couldn’t stand to see Teriana and her people being tortured. He pleads a temporary truce if she agrees to help them with their mission.
I have so many thoughts about this book that it’s going to be hard to get them all out without trying to write a book. I really both adored and couldn’t stand Marcus and Teriana. They are strong and amazing characters. I loved that about them. However, they were both a bit childish and stubborn. It kind of brought them down a bit. I loved the story. There were parts that could have been expanded a bit more. Not many but like maybe 3-5. Other than that, the book and the characters were very amazing. I was in love. I can’t wait to read the next book!
This book was narrated by both Jeanette Illidge and Jeremy Arthur. I have found that I really enjoy audiobooks that have two narrators. Especially when the story itself is in two points of view. It just makes things so much more enjoyable. The only critique I could give is that I think if it’s a female and male duo, the male should do the male voices in the female’s section and vice versa. Other than that, I really have no problems with the book.
I really enjoyed this book. It has so many great features in it. It has an adventure. It has intrigue. It has a tyrant. It even has very steamy forbidden love. What more could a reading addict want? I am very much looking forward to reading the second book. The cover of this book is gorgeous as well! I fully recommend!
