If you could sum up The Marauders' Island in three words, what would they be?
A Staycation Beach Read
What does Linnea Mohn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Linnea was wonderful as the narratorfor this book. She didn't just read the book. She became the characters!
Any additional comments?
Overall, I enjoyed the book.
The relationship between the MC and her mom seemed pretty thin, though. Absent from her life for five years, she's quick to run off with her and doesn't seem to be 'homesick' for the grandmother and life she left behind. At all.
Five years would cause a rift or disconnect, which we see at one point. But the young heroine is too quick to back talk/stand up to her mom. Probably unrealistic, even in a fantasy world.
The other flaw was this newly graduated mage flawlessly spells the island to rise ... Was this the first time we see her use her powers? Hmmm
I would still offer a 4.5 stars because I loved the idea of this book. The plot was wonderful and the characters were incredibly 21st century personality types and lively.
Perhaps another edition with more world building and depth given to the MC would tie it together better.
The narrator was spellbinding and brought this book to life. It felt like a vacation beach read with the scenery and pacing.
I loved the book. I just didn't fall in love with it. I would recommend it and I would listen to more from this author. Actually, I came across this book on Audible because I was searching for some of the other books I have on my TBR from this author!
