After delivering the pearl, Finn and Aria thought life would return to normal.
But with the survival of the clans still in peril, they must continue their quest.
Can they find the next relic before the forces of evil?
Not everyone is who they appear to be
And time is running out …
After reviewing the audiobook of Eternal Seas I couldn’t pass up the chance to review book 2 in the Relic Hunters Series – Wild Sky and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. I would highly recommend you read the books in order as they do follow on and a lot is explained and developed in book one that you don’t want to miss.
After delivering the first relic and finding a few surprises on the way, Aria and Finn find themselves searching for a second relic and embarking upon yet another treacherous journey.
In Wild Sky we see Aria’s character develop more with the discovery of her own strengths in book one, it’s a pleasure to then continue and follow her on this journey. Alongside her, Finn is still becoming accustomed to his powers and the responsibility that comes with them. Although still children, their characters are maturing and developing and the characters are so adorable that I became fully immersed in their transitions – like a proud parent watching from afar. Lexi Rees has created a lovable band of heroes that are so down to earth and relatable for any child but with enough mischief and adventure to captivate any younger reader/listener.
One of my favourite things about Eternal Seas was the world building. The settings in both books are familiar enough for children to recognise and imagine but with added elements that really bring a newer version of these places to life. Using vivid description and detail that draws the reader in, Rees has really brought these fantasy settings to life.
Going back into Finn and Aria’s world was a fabulous experience and I wasn’t disappointed by this sequel. These books are brilliant for aged 7-12 to read or to listen to and a great introduction to fantasy for younger children. Having said that – I’m in my 40s and thoroughly enjoyed it all to myself.
