Book Overview

Nineteen-year-old Tristaine lived a life of bitterness. When her mother abandoned her family, and her father began drinking, Tris discovered the only thing that truly brought her happiness: the sea.

It called to her like a lover and flowed through her like a life force. When her only peace is threatened to be taken away, Tris realizes there is nothing she wouldn’t do to remain with the ocean.

Even if it means taking her own life to do so.

But the sea isn’t done with her -not yet- and Tris soon finds herself submerged in a world where love, betrayal, and honor stand stronger than any other force of nature.

Book Review

Arms of the Ocean is a MATURE read for depression, anxiety, suicide, domestic abuse, occasional language, and sexual content. I don’t feel this was adequately expressed with any trigger warnings in the synopsis and I was really jarred by that.

As someone who has PTSD and has experienced some of these triggering situations, I would not have read it or volunteered to review this book.

The world-building was lovely but the story was ruined for me by the unnecessary descriptive scenes and the lack of content warnings for readers.
