Waiting on Wednesday (#319): Dark Shores by Danielle L. Jensen

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I'm featuring:

Dark Shores (Dark Shores, #1)

Dark Shores by Danielle L. Jensen
Book One of the Dark Shores series
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication Date: May 7, 2019

Summary (from Goodreads):

Piracy, blackmail, and meddling gods meet in Dark Shores, a thrilling first novel in a fast-paced new YA fantasy series by Danielle L. Jensen.

Teriana is the second mate of the Quincense, a ship beholden to the Goddess of the Seas. Her people are born of the waves, and they alone know how to cross the impassable oceans between East and West. 

Marcus is the commander of the Thirty-Seventh, the notorious legion that has led the Celendor Empire to conquer the entire East. The legion is his only family, and even they don't know the secret he's been hiding since childhood.

When a power-hungry ruler captures Teriana's crew and threatens to reveal Marcus's secret unless they help him conquer the unknown West, the two are forced into an unlikely–and unwilling– alliance. They unite for the sake of their families, but both must decide how far they are willing to go, and how much they are willing to sacrifice.

I didn't like Jensen's previous series, but I am willing to try this new book. I hope it's good!


  1. While I enjoyed Danielle's previous series up to a point, I was extremely upset with how it ended. I ended up donating my copies. That's how disappointed I was. I'm honestly not sure if I am up to trying her books again after that. But I hope you will enjoy this one! Will definitely keep an eye out for your review since I know you didn't like her first series either.
