Prepare to be swept away by this thrilling new story from Astrid! This book has it all: a countdown, adventure on the sea, cool creatures, and one of my favorite sister relationships I've ever read. I LOVED it! However, the book relies on the countdown clock to create tension, but it’s hard to stay engaged in a story with no real antagonist or motivation beyond a simple 24 hour timer. There’s a villain, but they’re not introduced until more than halfway through the 420 page book, and even then they don’t stand up to scrutiny. This wasn't bad, it was just okay. I didn't love it as much as I'd hoped to. Also, wow, that ending. That felt kind of like I was cheated. I guess I had fun, but this just wasn't the type of thing I normally go for
