The Girl Who Belonged to the Sea by Katherine Quinn will have any fan of romance and fantasy on the edge of their seats with excitement. Margrete Woods could never have imagined that on the day she prayed to the god of the sea, her whole life would change in a matter of weeks. On her wedding day to Count Casbian, she is kidnapped by an attractive Azatian king named Bash. He planned to use her as a bargaining chip to retrieve something that her father stole, an item of great importance to the kingdom. The chemistry between Margrete and Bash is evident from the moment they meet and it won’t be long before they realize that Margrete is of more importance to the Azantian Kingdom than they ever realized.
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. There wasn’t a moment I wanted to put down The Girl Who Belonged to the Sea. I would have read this book in one sitting if I had the time. Katherine Quinn has the ability to write a fast-paced story without it feeling rushed. The love story between Bash and Margrete unfolded naturally and never felt forced. The adventure kept me intrigued and there were enough twists and turns to ensure I wasn’t able to guess the ending. This is one of the best books I have read in a while and I can’t wait for the next installment in the Azantian Trilogy. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new series.
