Review: One Salt Sea

One Salt Sea
One Salt Sea by Seanan McGuire
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this one. I think the series keeps improving and love that we keep getting to learn about more fae (the Undersea species were incredible – I want to see them). I also find myself wanting to know so much more about the backstory of faerie (almost more so than the current story, which admittedly is not good). There were parts of this one that felt disjointed, especially having not read the prior books for awhile and I feel like there are still many ends I’d like to see tied up, but I still loved it.

*******MASSIVE SPOILER************
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m a fan of Tybalt and have never warmed to Connor. As such, I was not happy that Toby and Connor were together. I get it – the childhood love that never got to play itself off, etc, but I still didn’t like it. Connor could never be all of what she needs. And Tybalt, well….he’s Tybalt – mysterious, sexy, some of the “bad boy” complex and he can deal. As such, I’m glad that Connor died. While I felt sad for Toby and her loss, and a slight twinge at his death, I just never found myself that attached to him. And I’m very glad that he died, rather than “slept” because it would have been fairly painful to watch Toby wait for him to wake up. So…now more Tybalt! I want to know what the secrets are and what’s there between them.

Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
