The
Midnight Sea by Kat Ross
(Fourth Element #1)
Publication date: May 10th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
MidnightSea
Synopsis:

They are the light against the darkness.

The steel against the necromancy of the Druj.

And they use demons to hunt demons….

Nazafareen lives for revenge. A girl of the isolated Four-Legs Clan, all she knows about the King’s elite Water Dogs is that they bind wicked creatures called daevas to protect theempire from the Undead. But when scouts arrive to recruit young people with the gift, she leaps at the chance to join their ranks. To hunt the monsters that killed her sister.

Scarred by grief, she’s willing to pay any price, even if it requires linking with a daeva named Darius. Human in body, he’s possessed of a terrifying power, one that Nazafareen controls. But the golden cuffs that join them have an unwanted side effect. Each experiences the other’s emotions, and human and daeva start to grow dangerously close.

As they pursue a deadly foe across the arid waste of the Great Salt Plain to the glittering capital of Persepolae, unearthing the secrets of Darius’s past along the way, Nazafareen is forced to question his slavery—and her own loyalty to the empire. But with an ancient evil stirring in the north, and a young conqueror sweeping in from the west, the fate of an entire civilization may be at stake…

Mama’s Thoughts:
With some gorgeous, exciting writing and a cover that I’d be happy to have on my shelves, The Midnight Sea swept me away to a world long ago and far away.  I was completely enchanted by Nazareen’s tale of bravery, betrayal, friendship and love.  This is ya fantasy at its finest.  Nail-biting battle scenes, a perilous journey (or two) and characters that you become completely compelled to follow.  I would have never guessed at some of the surprises thrown in, Ross kept me on my toes most of the book in fact!  I like to have a little mystery, and not have everything laid out for me, so this was a great addition to an already stellar tale.  There’s also plenty of swoon-worthy heros, antiheros, and jerkfaces.  Though I greatly appreciated the small romantic elements not taking over the story in any way, and the diversity of ways in which love was portrayed.  A fabulous read indeed!
