Publisher's Summary

In the second book in The Evermore Chronicles by Emily R. King, Everley Donovan plunges into the roiling waves of a strange new world to hunt a wicked prince who cheated time.

Everley Donovan’s mission: retrieve the hallowed sword of Avelyn stolen by the wicked Prince Killian, who slayed her family and left her for dead. Should she fail, the seven worlds will come to an end, as could time itself. And no one treasures time more than Everley, whose lifesaving clock heart cannot beat forever. She has set sail with a rogue crew for the otherworlds, where the key to dethroning the prince lies deep within the Land Under the Wave.

But passage through these unknown seas - where horrors lurk and pirates rove - proves a treacherous gamble. The Land Under the Wave was not made for humans, particularly one with a fragile clock heart. Here, Everley’s tragic past resurfaces unsolved questions. Here, too, the prince has hidden secrets more precious than pearls, secrets that could fracture the future forevermore. Everley must take back her sword and break free from this watery world before her time runs out…or so will everyone else’s.

her voice changes volume too much, it is distracti

The constant sudden changes in volume a d pitch of voice is distracting. It is difficult to focus on the storyline, when I have to constantly turn up and down my speaker volume!

Play at .75 speed

I have the series of the 100th queen and other books who feature this narrator, but this has got to be one of the worst performances I have listened too in a long time. I have the first book to the series and had to play at .75 speed also. My mistake was not listening to the first book again. The main character the tick tock girl is so angry, shrill and speaks with such meanness to all that she interacts with that the performance is ruined. Over 80% of both books is like being screamed at for hours on end by some mad woman. She screams at her uncle, brother, friends, husband, people she just meets even the god who gave her the clock heart,, it makes me even question if I am in madness myself for listening to it.
I feel sorry for the narrator since her voice must of suffered with all the hours of yelling that she had to read through.
Maybe reading the book and not listening to it would be a better option.

Not great.

The first book was ok. This one is not even ok. The reading was not that interesting and the story itself was on the boring side.

The narrator is amazing!!!

Ahhh! I really love Emily R. King’s mind. She has the most creative ideas for world-building. I was so excited to read this follow-up, because I LOVED LOVED LOVED Before the Broken Star.

I felt like this sequel had so much going on. The adventure and action started IMMEDIATELY, giving me no time to process the start of events. You will not be bored with this book, as there is something always going on.

Going back to world building, I do feel like the mystic creatures were flushed out enough—I had many questions that didn’t really get answered. I would have liked there to have been more descriptives and explanations about all the mystical creatures—i.e. we were told how to transport to different worlds, but we weren’t told why (prime ex.: when people had to switch bodies to go underwater).

Overall, I wanted so much more clarification and conciseness from this sequel. But I did enjoy it and I can’t read the final in the series.

We were given a copy for free, from Skyscape, in exchange for an honest review.
