“In the wake of the devastating destruction of the luxury yacht Persephone, just three souls remain to tell its story—and two of them are lying. Only Frances Mace knows the terrifying truth, and she’ll stop at nothing to avenge the murders of everyone she held dear. Even if it means taking down the boy she loves and possibly losing herself in the process.
Sharp and incisive, Daughter of Deep Silence by bestselling author Carrie Ryan is a deliciously smart revenge thriller that examines perceptions of identity, love, and the lengths to which one girl is willing to go when she thinks she has nothing to lose.”
I was fairly hesitant when I started this book. I haven’t seen a lot of early reviews and the cover was cool but didn’t match up to the synopsis. But I was pleasantly surprised with Daughter of Deep Silence.
The book started off right away with very little intro. I really liked how it just jumped into the story and didn’t waste any time. I felt like the whole book was right to the point and wasn’t slow or boring at all.
I liked the main character quite a bit. I didn’t find her to be really annoying or stupid. She was really well written and even though most of the time I couldn’t relate to her, I got caught up in her story and her quest for revenge.
I did feel like the writing was a little over the top at times. It’s not a big deal and it’s more of a personal preference then a “flaw” but it did get a little annoying to me at times.
Overall, I don’t actually have a lot to say about this book because I wasn’t actually being critical while reading Daughter of Deep Silence. I felt like it was a fun read and I did enjoy reading it. I don’t think it will become one of my favorites but I’ll most likely reread this book some time.
