#BookReview: Beyond the Shadowed Earth (Beneath the Haunting Sea) by @gamwyn @PageStreetKids

Synopsis: It has always been Eda’s dream to become empress, no matter the cost. Haunted by her ambition and selfishness, she’s convinced that the only way to achieve her goal is to barter with the gods. 

But all requests come with a price and Eda bargains away the soul of her best friend in exchange for the crown.

Years later, her hold on the empire begins to crumble and her best friend unexpectedly grows sick and dies. 

Gnawed by guilt and betrayal, Eda embarks on a harrowing journey to confront the very god who gave her the kingdom in the first place. 

However, she soon discovers that he’s trapped at the center of an otherworldly labyrinth and that her bargain with him is more complex than she ever could have imagined.

Set in the same universe as Joanna’s debut, Beneath the Haunting SeaBeyond the Shadowed Earth combines her incredible world building and lush prose with a new, villainous lead.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
My Review: Although I did not read the first book and I didn't even realize this was a companion novel I was fine.  I didn't think that I was missing anything but I will be going back to read the first novel.  This one was a redemption story and I have a soft spot for those.  You really feel for Eda throughout the entire story, with everything that she went through.  All of the fantasy elements in this one were wonderful and fresh.  I don't think I have really read another title like this.  The pacing was well done and I never felt lost in the writing.  So many fantasy titles go over the top and you get lost in the story (in a bad way) but this one was not confusing at all.  I think that readers who loved The Lord of Rings might really enjoy this one!
