Series Info/Source: This is the first book in the Azantian trilogy. I got an eGalley of this book through NetGalley to review.

Thoughts: This book was impossible to put down and an absolutely fantastic fantasy read. This is an incredible adult fantasy that will send you on a magical adventure and then twist your heart into knots.

Margrete is being forced into marriage by her abusive father. That is until her wedding is interrupted by a band of pirates who kidnap her. The pirates are led by a captain, named Bash, who as it turns out is not a pirate at all but the King of the Azantian. He only wants Margrete in order to force Margrete’s dad to return a powerful relic to him; he doesn’t realize Margrete has her own agenda.

This story is full of magic, adventure, battling gods, and a sweet romance (with some explicit sex scenes). The chemistry between the two leads is off the charts and absolutely sucks you in. I loved every minute of this book and just could not put it down. A lot of this book reminded me of the early books in “A Court of Thorns and Roses” series by Sarah Maas.

My Summary (5/5): Overall this was an amazing fantasy romance story and I absolutely loved the two leads and the chemistry between them. This is some great world-building here and an engaging story as well. I would highly recommend this series if you enjoy fantasy romance stories with solid world-building and an engaging story. I loved it and can't wait to read the next book in the series. ( )

I received a copy of this book on LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review.

The Girl Who Belonged to the Sea is about Margrete a young woman who shares a strong bond with the sea. She lives under her father’s thumb, a ruthless pirate who takes pleasure in hurting her and who controls her by threatening the wellbeing of her beloved younger sister. Margrete wants nothing more than to be free and ask the god of the sea to help her out. Unfortunately, her father promises her hand to a stranger to get more power. She accepts her fate under the promise she’ll be able to take care of her little sister. On her wedding day, there is a pirate raid and she get kidnapped. She is taken to a place of myths and legends where she’ll get more than she would have ever though.

I absolutely loved that book. It had been a while since I last read a story that captivated me the way this one did. I Loved when Margrete finally stands up for herself when she gets kidnapped by this dangerous pirate even if they both feel attracted to each other. Seeing them interact together while trying to ignore their feelings and living through multiple escape attempts was entertaining. I also loved the legend aspect of it since those have always fascinated me. Finally, the author writes really well. The words she uses are rich and the way she puts them together is lyrical. The two points of view were used well.

I was surprised when the big bad pirate act didn’t last more than for one battle. I would have loved to see it go away slower. On the other hand, Margrete’s powers were kinda fast to come. We know she has them for a while, but they all unlock conveniently for the main event. I would have loved to see them grow or have more hints they are developing throughout the book. The author does make you understand why they unlock there though. I just hope to see more in the second book.

In the end, The Girl Who Belongs to the Sea was a great read that I truly recommend. ( )

“The gods are cruel and seldom kind. And fate? Fate laughs at us all.”

4.5/5 stars! This book has everything I love in a great fantasy book; a strong, formidable heroine, a love interest with a tragic backstory, hidden/undiscovered magical abilities, and an enemies to lovers romance with spice that actually contributed to the plot. Overall, a very engaging read; I could not put this book down. However, I wish there had been a little more character development. I have a hard time believing that Bash and Margrete could have formed such a strong bond/relationship over the span of just a few days. Additionally, I just came off of reading FBAA, so some of the dialogue and plot points seemed almost too similar. However, I liked the direction the book took at the end and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!

I was given a copy of this book for free through LibraryThing Early Reviewers and am leaving this review voluntarily. ( )

This was a great read. I was never bored, never inclined to set the book down. The lore and worldbuilding really drew me in. The relationship was, of course, delicious. I'd guessed the "twist" at the end, but that's okay. I'd have liked a little more resolution with Birdie since she was so important to Margrete but that's kind of nitpicky. Excited to see where the story goes in book 2! ( )

"This man was violence and promised ruin all wrapped into one wicked present."
Weeellll...sign me up!
And that cover art...beautiful!

The Girl Who Belonged to the Sea is a magical pirate-esque romance with plenty of humor and adventure thrown in. The side characters (I'm looking at you, Bay) are just as much fun as the main characters in this book and I so love that! I think being able to fall in love with the side characters is just as important as rooting for the main characters of a story.
Speaking of main characters, the romantic tension between Bash and Margrete is -chef's kiss-! Wonderfully done enemies to lovers. Margrete is snarky and fairly self-reliant (or so she tries to be), which I love in a female main character. Bash is pretty much the perfect male not-quite-human specimen and his moving tattoos are such a cool addition to the magical aspect of the plot.

I'm kind of a sucker for all the things included in this book; sea-faring adventures, romance, mysterious voices, fun side-characters, magical lands...so, pretty much instant five stars from me. :) Slam dunk, Katherine Quinn...I am very much looking forward to the next book!

HUGE thank you to City Owl Press via LibraryThing for the e-copy to read, enjoy, and review. ( )
