A young Jorah once helped a strange but beautiful girl, not knowing their fates would be tied together. Larimar: Gem of the Sea by Christine E. Schulze follows the adventures of Jorah, now a captain, as he sails the seas with his crew and gets into all kinds of mischief. Now on a mission to find the ancient city of Larimar, he and his crew encounter a storm. Being a true captain, Jorah decides to go down with his ship but a beautiful woman appears to save him.
Larimar by Christine E. Schulze is filled with adventure and wonder. Larimar may be on the shorter side but it is in no way lacking. The plot was enjoyable and the characters were absolutely charming. Schulze wasted no time getting into the nitty-gritty of the plot, giving just enough backstory and information to follow along with present events. The mystery behind Larimar, both the city and the woman, was really intriguing while Jorah was a fun-loving main character who brought much laughter. I enjoyed this immensely and I think any reader looking for a genuinely good book should give this a read or listen to the audiobook.
I could immediately tell the narration by Jocelyn Duford was professionally done. The sound quality was crystal clear and Duford read with a steady tone and pace. I do feel there could have been a bit more emotion added to the narration, considering the type of story this is; however, I still really enjoyed this audiobook. It was very easy to just sit back and become immersed in the story and with the steady rhythm of Duford’s voice, you don’t even notice time go by.
