thank you to netgalley for allowing me to read Across the Scorched Sea by Jennifer Hayashi Danns. I didnt realized that this was part of a series overall it was okay.

I had enjoyed the first book in the Mu Chronicles series, so when I saw this came out I was excited to get back into this world. The cover was beautifully done and I was enjoying getting back to this world. Jennifer Hayashi Danns does it again in this chapter of the series. The characters felt like they belonged in this world and I enjoyed getting back to them, I enjoyed how it improved on the first book.

Across the Scorched Sea picks up where the previous book finishes. Kaori has flooded Mu and her and Kairi have gone their separate ways. Kaori to blacklands and Kairi to May. They each built their own temples to rule their own individual ways. This book starts off understandable using he/she pronouns yet sadly finished off with mu/mir/mem again which made it once again impossible to understand. Some secrets are revealed from other characters throughout this book and it is not just told from the twins perspective. This book is also aimed at young adults. My young adult daughter read this book and the previous one and the extreme amount of violence and the horrific way these people treat each off her gave her nightmares.
I didn’t like this book. It was too confusing. Having read both books I appreciate what the author is trying to do but all it has achieved is making me confused and the the book impossible to understand in places. I don’t recommend this book to young adults either. It is far too confusing and filled full of too much violence and horrific acts against the person.
Thank you to the publisher and netgalley for the chance to read this book in exchange for my honest review.
