Blog Tour: All the Tides of Fate by Adalyn Grace

Through blood and sacrifice, Amora Montara has conquered a rebellion and taken her rightful place as queen of Visidia. Now, with the islands in turmoil and the people questioning her authority, Amora cannot allow anyone to see her weaknesses.

No one can know about the curse in her bloodline. No one can know that she’s lost her magic. No one can know the truth about the boy who holds the missing half of her soul.

To save herself and Visidia, Amora embarks on a desperate quest for a mythical artifact that could fix everything―but it comes at a terrible cost. As she tries to balance her loyalty to her people, her crew, and the desires of her heart, Amora will soon discover that the power to rule might destroy her.


All the Tides of Fate by Adalyn Grace is a fabulous sequel to All the Stars and Teeth. We are jumping into the story where Amora is now queen. Amora is really struggling. She doesn't have the love and respect that she needs from her people and the hardest part is she isn't sure she should have it. Amora is suffering from grief and guilt after her father's brutal death. She spends a good chunk of this book emotionally closed off from everyone. I was able to really appreciate that Grace doesn't gloss over Amora's trauma with her father. She shows the reader all the brutal effects of it. As the reader, you really feel her pain and what she is going through and I really appreciate that.

Grief is definitely a big part of this story and I think that grief is a subject that ya novels don't touch on very often. It is almost one of those taboo subjects. I find that it is important to have themes like this. It is even more important to have themes like this is fantasy books. Fantasy books tend to have much lighter themes in them as well. I appreciate what Grace was doing with this book.

Besides Amora, we got to see Ferrick, Vataea, and Bastian again. Grace has some amazing supporting characters. I really loved getting to connect with this crew again. The drama between Amora and Bastian is intense. Amora tries to avoid him at all costs because she didn't want to deal with her feelings and all the confusion that come with them. I really loved Bastian and Amora's interactions when they did happen. They got dealt a really sucky hand so it was great to see them overcome their obstacles.
