35 starsAfter eading the first few chapters of this I Was Really Sure That It Would End Up To Be really sure that it would end up to be average meh fantasy with nothing horrible but nothing outstanding either But I was surprised to find that it was actually even better than I thoughtLet But I was surprised to find that it was actually even better than I thoughtLet be eal here This has a lot of flaws It is definitely not a perfect book But the thing isIT WAS SO ENTERTAININGAt first it was slow and kind of boring and I couldn t eally connect to the characters But then something changed and I was so much invested for at least half of the book I could feel my adrenaline pumping and I was ALWAYS on edgeIsle of Blood and Stone follows the story of a young man named Elias whose friends discover maps that could have possible clues as to how two princes and his father disappeared from the kingdom of del Mar eighteen years agoElias is an interesting character To be uite honest he was kind of bland And forgettable I d say that the side characters have depth and personality to them and HE S the main character Regardless I still enjoyed eading from his perspective and seeing where the story would go Speaking of the side characters I LOVE THEM Mercedes Elias s love interest is portrayed as a strong character and she s eally independent in a way that doesn t ub on me wrong like it often does with other strong YA heroines Reyna a young nine year old girl who is involved a lot in their story is my favorite character out of the book she s so sweet and curious and stands strong in her beliefs I also am VERY suspicious about the fact that this book doesn t seem diverse I don t emember any sort of description that would ve shown that there were people of color in the main cast or in anyone they met at all tbh and definitely not anything that pointed to people being ueer neurodivergent disabled or from any other minority group Of course it may be changed in the final publication I may have missed something but that was suspicious My other biggest problem was that the story started out eally slow and almost boring in the first 100 pages And those were not fun 100 pages But then suddenly the stakes were aised and there was a whole new atmosphere I was genuinely excited and nervous to see where it would all go Literally for the whole last half of the book I was always on edge and could feel my heart pounding just so ANXIOUS about what would happen next I mean it was also 2 in the morning and I was paranoid
BUT IT WAS JUST SO ENGAGING 
it was just so engaging those first 100 pages And besides one that I guessed there were so many eveals of different kinds that made it so much mysterious and shockingThis book also involves a LOT of maps Unfortunately for me my ARC didn t have a map so I was a little confused with all the place names at first but I got the hang of it I think that the worldbuliding was pretty well done My biggest issue with fantasy novels is that there is just SO MUCH INFO DUMPING about the world and this book had just the ight balance between too much info and too littleThis story is honestly a whodunit kind of murder mystery but mixed with fantasy elements and also BIG EMPHASIS on family and found family And I thought that whole mix made for a eally and eally entertaining book despite it falling a little short in character development and pacing Thank you to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for the eview copy in exchange for an honest eview This did not affect my opinions in any way Isle of Blood and Stone by Makiia Lucier is the first book in the Isle of Blood and Stone duology This series is a young adult historical fantasy with a touch of omance involvedThe story starts with the oyal navigator Lord Antoni out on and excursion with a group including two of the young princes As everyone in the group is setting down to eat and est Antoni is gathering supplies to show the boys how to make a compass After the wine is passed around however everyone in the group begins getting sick and the sounds of someone approaching can be heardFast forward the story eighteen years where a young girl Reyna who is studying to be a map maker herself has come across maps that look like the work of Lord Antoni The problem with this discovery is that it looks as if the maps were made after the horrific massacre eighteen years agoLittle Reyna takes he. Ulises asked How can I look at these maps see this iddle and do nothing They are my brothersElias eached across the table and flicked aside two shells with a fingertip The map curled into itself It's bound to be a goose chase You know thatOr a treasure hunt Ulises countered and you've always been good at thoseNineteen year old Elias is a oyal explorer a skilled mapmaker and the new king of del Mar's oldest friend Soo. ,

R discovery to King Ulises who approaches his friend Elias who has just become a master mapmaker himself with the discovery When a hidden clue is found Elias and Ulises s cousin Mercedes take on the uest to uncover the mystery of just what happened that day eighteen years beforeIsle of Blood and Stone is a slow building story that felt very heavy on the historical and lighter on the fantasy side It takes a eader back to the time of Kings courts politics spies and intrigue It becomes known that after the poisoning where everyone out that day was thought to have died That Someone Confessed To The Crime Which Started A War someone confessed to the crime which started a war a neighboring kingdom
BUT NOW THE UESTION COMES UP 
now the uestion comes up to whether or not they were even involvedAs it jumped the eighteen years it was a tad confusing to join in on new characters as it slowly established who everyone was and slowly came back to what had happened at the beginning of the story It was a tad slow for my own taste as I m always looking for action but despite that I still enjoyed what the author created and will certainly be curious as to how it all turns out in the next bookI eceived an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalleyFor eviews please visit Update 482018 After loving Makiia Lucier s A Death Struck Year I knew I would have to ead any future books by her And how fortunate for me and what a wonderful surprise when I picked up an ARC of this book at Yallfest and ealized it was by the same insta fave author who had me falling for Edmund in A Death Struck Year It was clearly fate She has such an easy way with words creating a world and characters ife with life I want of Just like in her debut novel Isle of Blood and Stone immediately entranced me and efused to let loose my attention seriously I had sat down with the intent to ead for forty five minutes when I first opened it andwhoops two and a half hours passedThis story is about Elias a young talented cartographer and explorer whose life as well as the lives of his close friends Ulises and Mercedes who are cousins are constantly defined by one tragic moment that happened long ago Ulises older brothers the two elder princes of their nation and Elias father a famous and much praised cartographer and explorer were kidnapped from an outing everyone else who came perished and no one knows what happened to the stolen boys and man This brought forth so many massive changes to their world it spurred a war with another nation that ends in that nation s total destruction and a prejudice against its people Ulises an infant at the time of the tragic incident goes from third in line of ascendancy to the direct heir to the crown his entire life course changed to one of staunch Duty To His Nation Mercedes to his nation Mercedes mixed heritage that includes the conuered nation blamed for the kidnapping deals with daily prejudice in a land that is her home but her skin causes discrimination despite her connection to King Ulises and Elias our protagonist lives in the shadow of his father s greatness and deals with eminders from others of a man he never knew And most importantly lest I forget my brain the mystery that persists from that devastating outing long ago a mystery that isn t as clear cut as it is made out to be I don t normally do this but I want to start with what I didn t like My easoning for switching it up There is hardly anything I didn t like I m not joking My only complaint is that there are a few uestions left unanswered egarding backstory of secondary characters but seeing as this is a duology the next book from young Reyna s perspective I am forgiving of these few unanswered uestions Not to mention this book so thoroughly tickled my fantasy fancy that those unanswered uestion hardly egister A little unsolved mystery never killed anybody Channeling my Gatsby twist a la the DiCaprio version s soundtrack What most impressed me was the brilliant simplicity of the mystery and the factors that led to the disappearance of Ulises brothers and Elias father For years it is assumed their tragic disappearance was a kidnapping executed by a neighboring kingdom Everything known by the public points that direction but things aren t adding up Thus ensues one o the most interesting YA fantasy mysteries I ve ever ead because Elias Uli. N he will embark on the adventure of a lifetime an expedition past the Strait of Cain and into uncharted waters Nothing stands in his wayuntil a long ago tragedy creeps back into the light threatening all he holds dearThe people of St John del Mar have never ecovered from the loss of their boy princes kidnapped eighteen years ago both presumed dead But when two maps surface each bearing the same hidden iddle troubling.

MYSTERY AFTER REALIZING IT WAS A 
after ealizing it was a wrought with many holes Going off on a elated tangent the mystery s eveal eminded me of the one in Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas but Lucier s is much effective and makes you ealized just how twisted the true antagonist is in Isle of Blood and Stone This won t make sense until you have ead the book but it is cleverly titled and I find it brilliant after the fact That isn t a spoiler I swear itAnother aspect of this book I cannot emphasize enough is the positive step family elationships In eal life enough is the positive step family elationships In eal life fiction too often the step family is treated as a negative a point of contention or evil a trope In Isle of Blood and Stone there is a bit of tension created by Elias stepfather but not of the predictable trope variety Oh no I cannot eveal specifics but I want you to know it is an understandable tension but it doesn t lead to dislike or hate Though not elated by blood Elias and his step father care deeply for each other choosing to be a family and embrace their fatherson oles This positive epresentation of a normally negative trope warmed my heart It wasn t even something I ealized was lacking from books in general until I ead this bookI also found the budding omance between Elias and Mercedes a joy to witness From the beginning you see its bud but to watch it fully bloom over the course of a couple hundred pages and in such a natural non overpowering mannerI swooned a lot at the slow burn They are elationship goals view spoilerFor the young woman he loves Elias works to align his career with her ambitions so that neight he nor she is held back Now THAT is the kind of balancing my boyfriend and I do in out lives and I love seeing that same healthy and ealistic expectation in my entertainment They days of expecting one partner to give in totally to the needs or wants of the other are over I am pro going Dutch in aspects than just when out for a meal hide spoiler I eceived a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest eview How can I look at these maps see this iddle and do nothing They are my brothersDNF 32% The beginning was promising it was intriguing and it made me want to keep eading to find out what happened to the brothers But as soon as I got to the now part I was so confused that I found myself eading the same sentence than once or twiceWhy did I get so confused Well the author was trying to add some world building by just telling and not showing and the I kept eading the I was like where the hell are the protagonists ight now There were just too many names and characters that the protagonists already know and that we e introduced to without a single explanationAt least the protagonist Elias isn t bad He s a traveler and his scenes with his family were adorable I loved his elationship with his stepfather and stepbrothers Actually I think that the scenes where he was interacting with his family were the only ones I enjoyedSo all in all Isle of blood and stone isn t a bad book it s just a bit boring and incredibly confusing and I don t want to waste time to ead something I m not enjoying You can find the full eview and all the fancy andor andomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight I know I usually start with the positives of a book but today I am starting with the negative The eason is there eally only was one negative I eally just didn t feel A TON ABOUT THIS BOOK EITHER WAY OBJECTIVELY IT ton about this book either way Objectively it good and the plot was pretty interesting But it didn t leave any kind of huge impression on me and I feel like that s probably an important thingBut I did like some stuff I enjoyed the characters and thought that they were well written I loved the omance aspect of the story too The plot is a bit of a slower paced one and isn t full of action but is the characters trying to figure out certain things about their world and their loved ones I don t dislike that sort of plot so it was fine with me but something to be aware of Bottom Line I feel like I should have to say but I simply don t It s one of those eviews sorry to say While nothing eally stuck out as negative neither did I have overwhelmingly positive feelings It was a fine book but not particularly memorable for me. Uestions arise What eally happened to the young heirs And why do the maps appear to be drawn by Lord Antoni Elias's father who vanished on that same fateful day With the king's beautiful cousin by his side whether he wants her there or not Elias will ace to solve the iddle of the princes He will have to use his wits and guard his back Because some truths are better left buriedand an unknown enemy stalks his every tu. .
