TYCR – 02 May 2020 – Dark Shores (Dark Shores #1) – Danielle L. Jensen

Hola, Book Dragons, it’s Saturday night! Are you out being crazy, hitting dance clubs? 😱😱😱 No, you’re being responsible citizens and staying at home, right? Definitely. Cozy in bed, reading, I hope? πŸ˜‰ Stay safe! πŸ™‚

I’m currently reading Dark Shores (Dark Shores #1) by Danielle L. Jensen. I got the second book from Netgalley, Dark Skies, which comes out on 05 May 2020 and I’m also on the blog tour. How cool is that? And man, both books have gorgeous covers! 😍😍😍

Dark Shores


High seas adventure, blackmail, and meddling gods meet in Dark Shores, a thrilling first novel in a fast-paced new YA fantasy series by USA Today bestselling author Danielle L. Jensen.

In a world divided by meddlesome gods and treacherous oceans, only the Maarin possess the knowledge to cross the Endless Seas. But they have one mandate: East must never meet West.


Teriana is the second mate of the Quincense and heir to the Maarin Triumvirate. Her people are born of the seas and the keepers of its secrets, but when her closest friend is forced into an unwanted betrothal, Teriana breaks her people’s mandate so her friend might escapeβ€”a choice with devastating consequences.


Marcus is the commander of the Thirty-Seventh, the notorious legion that has led the Celendor Empire to conquer the entire East. The legion is his family, but even they don’t know the truth he’s been hiding since childhood. It’s a secret he’ll do anything to protect, no matter how much it costs him – and the world.


When an Empire senator discovers the existence of the Dark Shores, he captures Teriana’s crew and threatens to reveal Marcus’s secret unless they sail in pursuit of conquest, forcing the two into an unlikelyβ€”and unwillingβ€”alliance. They unite for the sake of their families, but both must decide how far they are willing to go, and how much they are willing to sacrifice.

I’m only a few chapters in but the writing is so good, guys. I’ve been in a reading slump so it feels good to read something that really interests me.

What about you guys, have you read this book? What are you currently reading?

I'm a die-hard Book Dragon and also an advanced introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami and cross-stitch.

  1. That is a really cool cover.πŸ‘πŸ“š

    Ha, I wouldn’t be out clubbing on a Saturday night even out of lock down. The music in a club would make my ears bleed and you know, people, shudders.πŸ˜‚

    I hope you are keeping well? At least, as well as you can with how things are. How are things in Canada? There’s always a lot on the news about the US in the UK but Canada is hardly mentioned.

    1. Hi! I’m sorry I didn’t this comment until now! I was pretty much in a funk yesterday and I didn’t check my blog.

      Thank you, Drew. I’m doing ok. Still confined but I’ve been able to order groceries and such. There are still a lot of cases here. Don’t know what will happen. :/

      1. No worries.πŸ‘ I’m terrible at replying at times and I totally get the being in a funk thing. You don’t need to say sorry to me.πŸ˜€

        There are a lot of cases still in the UK too though we are supposed to be past the curve but it’ll take a long time for things to improve to any noticeable degree.
