Staff Reviews


Beautiful, dark, and magical; that is the only way I can describe Adrienne Young’s new book. Set in the same world as Sky in the Deep, The Girl the Sea Gave Back is filled with characters both old and new. Tova, the girl the sea gave back, is a Truthtongue. She can cast rune stones and read what they say about the future. Unfortunately, she is living among those who fear her and mistreat her because of that fear. Young does an amazing job creating characters that feel like real people. There are the ones that you hate to see come across the page because of their actions towards others, some who are power hungry, and some that are surprisingly kind. This book really made me think about the way we treat people who are different or “not normal.” -Victoria

“Feeding off the marvelous and vicious world established in Sky in the Deep, Adrienne Young has delivered another powerful and phenomenal book featuring amazing illustrations and personable characters. Inspired by the Vikings and Norse mythology, this is a story of coming together to fight for what you love, even against the odds. The characters are flawed and well-developed; the battles and fights are realistic and emotional. This book proves that old wounds can heal and enemies can put aside their differences. Young has a way with words —they are powerful, raw, and filled with emotion. You will not regret getting sucked back into the wonderful world from Sky in the Deep!”
— Anna Rose Carleton, The Well-Read Moose, Coeur d'Alene, ID

Description


"Both narrators add depth and resonance to Young's rich prose...Those who enjoy epic fantasy novels should definitely give this a listen!" — AudioFile Magazine

From Adrienne Young, New York Times bestselling author of Sky in the Deep, comes her new gut-wrenching epic The Girl the Sea Gave Back.

For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols and staves inked over every inch of her skin mark her as one who can cast the rune stones and see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east bury their age-old blood feud and join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.

For the first time in generations, the leaders of the Svell are divided. Should they maintain peace or go to war with the allied clans to protect their newfound power? And when their chieftain looks to Tova to cast the stones, she sets into motion a series of events that will not only change the landscape of the mainland forever but will give her something she believed she could never have again—a home.

"Gripping and exquisitely written. The Girl the Sea Gave Back tore at my heart strings until I was completely unraveled." - Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caravel
