I hope you are all doing great today. I was planing to post earlier, but I was waiting for my doctor’s appointment all morning and then I spend some time with my mom. Anyway, I’m posting it now! So I hope you enjoyed this review and go check out the book and get it.
“Eternal Seas” is a Middle Grade Fantasy Adventure novel written by Lexi Rees. This is the first book in The Relic Hunters Series.
I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Lexi for the eCopy of this book and for allowing me to join in the fun and by being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book.
Such a small parcel
shouldn’t cause experienced
smugglers much trouble,
but this parcel is far from normal.
Chased across the seas, Finn and Aria must solve the
mysteries within the parcel.
What does it mean? Who should they trust?
What will happen?
The fate of an ancient people depends on them
and time is running out …

Lexi Rees spends as much time as possible sailing and horse riding, both of which she does spectacularly badly. Attempts at writing whilst horse riding have been disastrous, so Eternal Seas was written on a boat; the storm described in the book was frighteningly real.

“Eternal Seas” follows the lives and adventures of a brother and sister duo, Finn and Aria, in a quick and fun pace that is not only engaging and exciting, it’s also a rollercoaster of actions and storytelling that left me dreaming and feeling like I was a kid in a fantasy world and enjoying the adventure with the characters.
It’s the first book in the The Relic Hunters Series so I know that there is so much more to discover in the magical world that we have just entered with this book. So, yes… there is magic and there is wonderful moments that if you are glued to the book you may swear you felt the energy.
That is all thanks to the vivid descriptions that Lexi give us during the entire book. The amazing force of the sea and the storms is always present and since I live in the central coast of Portugal, and less than 3 km away from the beach and the Atlantic Ocean, I felt a deep connection to the book because of those descriptions and the strength that Lexi Rees’ words have on the reader.
The world was well built and there is so much to uncover with the future novels in the series, but with an amazing group of characters, I know it’s going to be even greater. Like I said before this book follows Finn and Aria, a brother and sister that are the main characters of this novel. Their relationship was so great, their support for each other and the sibling love… it was relatable.
I’m the oldest in my sibling relationship, I have a brother that is just now 17yrs old and I love him very much, despite his crazy hormonal attitudes sometimes, and I which I could go on crazy and fun (but a bit dangerous) adventures like the characters of this book. But… we are “grown ups”… Although that doesn’t mean I can’t laugh with my brother and enjoy the time I have with him. Anyway, this sibling aspect of the story was another thing that made me connect to the characters and the plot.
The third aspect that made me love the book was the pace. It really had that action and adventure pace that made everything exciting, a bit dangerous (or a lot, depending on the moment), that left the adrenaline pumping and that filled our hearts with the crazy and ‘WOW’ scenes.
I can’t say more because I want you all to read the book without knowing any spoilers. So go read the book! I recommend it not only for children, but for everyone that want’s a good first book that begins our adventure.
