I am happy to announce I finally finished Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly! It was such a great read and I wanted to give a more in-depth review today. Don’t worry, If you haven’t read it yet you won’t find any spoilers in here:)
Ok, Let’s get into it!
Cover art and lettering:
First of all, I absolutely adore mermaids, so it wasn’t hard for me to get into this book. The cover is absolutely enchanting! I also love the hand painted lettering look for each of the chapter names and the blue hue spread across the tops of the chapter pages. So beautiful:)
The vocabulary in this one was AMAZING. I loved that the author put a vocabulary glossary at the back of the book that I could refer to when I didn’t understand a specific word. A lot of the language in the book was latin mixed with an imaginative mermaid language. I found the language surprisingly easy to swallow and it gave me a bunch of inspiration for my next manuscript. The ending took me by surprise and left me wanting much more of an explanation.
I am definitely hooked on this series, and I can’t wait to order the next sequel and get started with it… Until then I am starting Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series. Wish me luck on that one because I have been told it is quite the tear jerker😢
I 100% recommend this book for anybody looking for a new fantasy read. I was totally enthralled with this book and now I need to have the next two books in my collection.
