The Blurb:

Such a small parcel

shouldn’t cause experienced

smugglers much trouble,

but this parcel is far from normal.


Chased across the seas, Finn and Aria must solve the

mysteries within the parcel.

What does it mean? Who should they trust?

What will happen?

The fate of an ancient people depends on them

and time is running out …


My Review:

Adventure, suspense, plot twists, and great writing: what more could you possibly ask for?

Finn and Aria set off on an adventure with their dad on the sea to retrieve a parcel. But history, adventure, enemies, and a whole lot of intrigue stand in their way…

With suspenseful writing that’s both light enough for young(ish) children and yet draws you in, plot twists aplenty, and a depth that’s unusual for the target audience (and I mean this in the best possible way), this is a book to be treasured. Bring on book 2!

About the Author:

Lexi Rees spends as much time as possible sailing and horse riding, both of which she does spectacularly badly. Attempts at writing whilst horse riding have been disastrous, so Eternal Seas was written on a boat; the storm described in the book was frighteningly real.

You can connect with Lexi through her website, Facebook, and Twitter.
