#BookReview: The Edge of the Abyss (The Abyss Surrounds Us, #2) by @skrutskie


This title releases April 18, 2017.
 
Three weeks have passed since Cassandra Leung pledged her allegiance to the ruthless pirate-queen Santa Elena and set free Bao, the sea monster Reckoner she’d been forced to train. The days as a pirate trainee are long and grueling, but it’s not the physical pain that Cas dreads most. It’s being forced to work with Swift, the pirate girl who broke her heart. 

But Cas has even bigger problems when she discovers that Bao is not the only monster swimming free. Other Reckoners illegally sold to pirates have escaped their captors and are taking the NeoPacific by storm, attacking ships at random and ruining the ocean ecosystem. As a Reckoner trainer, Cas might be the only one who can stop them. But how can she take up arms against creatures she used to care for and protect?

Will Cas embrace the murky morals that life as a pirate brings or perish in the dark waters of the NeoPacific?

This was a really good book!  This is my first review on this site, and I have to say that I had a really fun time.  This one I wasn't too sure about. It's been a while since I read book one and with school, I really have time to reread it.  So I started this book with hope on my side.  This one I didn't get too far into it until I was around 30%. Then it really started getting good.  The continuing story was wonderful.  It was one great book. The creatures in this story were fabulous.  You really do need to read book one to get the full story for this series. I really can't wait for more.  I really love books with LBGTQ themes.  And if you do you won't be lost with this one.
