Minotes #3: Whiddershin’s Adventures in the Sea of Shadows

October 28, 2017 Review 6

While my reading dramatically decreases when I have exams, it doesn’t stop completely. So I did manage to read four books over the last few months. And for the sake of posting some sort of content, I’d thought it would be a good idea to do some mini reviews for them. Albeit crappy reviews because guess who didn’t take any notes while reading.


Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong

Genre: YA, fantasy
Series: Age of Legends #1
Rating: 4


  • Sisters hell yeah! Wish they could have interacted more
  • Politics is getting intriguing
  • Animal companions!!!!!!!
  • I really liked both girls a lot
  • Plus Kelley Armstrong is one of my favourite authors and she’s delving into my favourite genre
  • Super easy to read and keep pages turning, though minimal world building (this didn’t surprise me considering Armstrong’s books are usually very fast paced)
  • Cannot wait to read the rest and learn more about the world and characters

Whiddershins Adventures series by Ari Marmell

Genre: YA, fantasy
Rating: 4 stars


  • Actually reread the first book to refresh then read the rest one after the other
  • Hilarious!
  • Remind me of NEVERNIGHT a little in terms of Olgun’s sassyness being a bit like Mister Friendly and the whole god companion thing (it’s much less violent and more PG though)
  • Some of my favourite characters died in book two and it DESTROYED me
  • No romance (mostly because Whiddershins is totally oblivious)
  • Anticlimatic ending
  • Some of the creepiest villains I have ever read. Iruroch made my skin crawl more than any character ever has before
  • A tonne of fun
  • I want more in this world!
  • Mostly I want more Evrard because I have so many questions about him

      It didn’t get all too much hype when it was released. All I know was Alise didn’t like it that much haha. I hope you enjoy it like I did though!

    No shame in a short review! One of my other blogger friends does “coffee pot reviews,” on a occasion. She spends the amount of time on the review as it takes for her coffee to brew, and they’re always awesome. I’m impressed your reading at all during vet school. I legit took a 4 year reading break during ortho/perio school.

      That’s an excellent idea! Especially when so many people are super busy most days.

      Reading some is better than not reading at all haha. It’s what kept me sane.
