“Welcome brother. Tell us of your
Love across the sea.”

— Jennifer San Filippo

In a rich fantasy world where Songs literally move heaven and earth, one sister must use magic and the other must rely on strength to reunite when pirates, greed, and war tear them away from each other.

“Your son might die tonight. It might be my fault.”

— Jennifer San Filippo

Miren has never allowed jealousy of her sister’s magic keep her from taking care of Kesia, and Kesia has always depended on her big sister. When Kesia is kidnapped, Miren will do anything to get her back—even team up with her sister’s aristocratic and seemingly ineffectual boyfriend. Neither sister had ever left their small fishing village before, and now they are plunged into the wider world, minor players in a war between nations. Each sister faces external and internal perils, and each finds surprising allies and unexpected strengths. How will the two find each other again? And what will become of them if they don’t succeed?

“Only people without power feel the need to lie, Miss Miren.”

— Jennifer San Filippo


You know, I have really been digging sister fantasy stories lately! All of the ones I’ve read have just been so fresh and new feeling. And the fantasy worlds just keep getting more and more exciting! And I mean, this world was just special with the representation throughout. I mean, imagine, it’s normal for people to communicate through signing. Which was just so great for me to see because I honestly can’t even think of more than a couple of books with any sign language representation.

“It was as though the world had swallowed up all memory of her.”

— Jennifer San Filippo

I really enjoyed this world though, it was just so well thought out and there was so much world building throughout. And you know I’m a sucker for that. Plus the powers were so cool! And I’m going to leave it at that for you to find out on your own! However, outside of these aspects the plot was a little muddied. But honestly, that fits my tastes in books much better. I’d much rather learn a lot about the fantasy elements and I often don’t mind if a book doesn’t have a really plot based focus. Honestly though, I wanted to mention this because I know it will irk some people. SO, you have been warned!

“And then she heard a Voice of Fire.”

— Jennifer San Filippo

This was a heartwarming story with a unique world inside its pages. It’s one of those stories that you’ll be able to fall into and just have a fun time reading. Plus there is plenty of action to keep you thoroughly engaged as you whip through the pages. And might I say that the writing felt really unique to me and I really enjoyed the way this story unfolded!
