Set in a kingdom where danger lurks beneath the sea, mermaids seek vengeance with song, and magic is a choice, Adalyn Grace’s All the Stars and Teeth is a thrilling fantasy for fans of Stephanie Garber’s Caraval and Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series.

She will reign.

As princess of the island kingdom Visidia, Amora Montara has spent her entire life training to be High Animancer—the master of souls. The rest of the realm can choose their magic, but for Amora, it’s never been a choice. To secure her place as heir to the throne, she must prove her mastery of the monarchy’s dangerous soul magic.

When her demonstration goes awry, Amora is forced to flee. She strikes a deal with Bastian, a mysterious pirate: he’ll help her prove she’s fit to rule, if she’ll help him reclaim his stolen magic.

But sailing the kingdom holds more wonder—and more peril—than Amora anticipated. A destructive new magic is on the rise, and if Amora is to conquer it, she’ll need to face legendary monsters, cross paths with vengeful mermaids, and deal with a stow-away she never expected… or risk the fate of Visidia and lose the crown forever.

I am the right choice. The only choice. And I will protect my kingdom.

Rating: ★★★★★  
As always, a copy of this book was provided by the authors in exchange for my honest review. This does not effect my opinion in any way. 

HOLY MOLY. I'm amazed. I'm floored. I'm drowning in a sea of intensity and magic and emotion so strong, I cannot function as normal. All the Stars and Teeth is right up there with Woven in Moonlight as my favourite debut of 2020. Adalyn Grace has such an incredible prose, I could read All the Stars and Teeth again and again and probably not tire of its beauty and darkness. This was everything I didn't know I needed in a YA fantasy and then some.

There's a part of my heart that hasn't really slowed since finishing this gem of a novel. I've been feeling it all day. Even now, as I'm writing this review, there's this buzzing at the back of my mind that reminds me I've just read something so very special. Part of me wants to just keysmash my way through this review, but the other part of me knows I have to be more sensible and actually write about it.

All the Stars and Teeth is impossible to put down and so electric, my fingers still tingle a bit from its pages. Adalyn Grace's worldbuilding is breathtaking, the magic system intriguingly dark and a little bit horrifying and really sets the tone for the novel from the start. There's something undeniable in it. Once you start flipping through its pages, you don't want to stop. This, in part, is due to the fact that All the Stars and Teeth is so deliciously atmospheric and hypnotic.

You know when you find a book that just feels like it was written with you in mind? It's unexpected and takes you on a journey. The type of novel that draws you in and slips itself into your heart page by page? This is how I felt about All the Stars and Teeth. I loved nearly everything about it: the plot, the world, the magic, the characters and so much more.

One thing is certain. It's official: Amora, Bastian, Ferrick and Vatea have joined the lists of my favourite fictional characters and crew. Right up there with the #SQUADS from Six of Crows, The Shadowhunter Chronicles and A Court of Thorns and Roses

Filled with adventure and magic, and a little romance, All the Stars and Teeth is one of the strongest debuts of the year. Its magic is as uncompromising and fierce as its characters. Readers can expect to flinch just as easily as swoon with this adventurous tale. The hype is real with this one. 

When I went into All the Stars and Teeth, I immediately noticed how intense the writing was. It was equally dreamy and aggressive. This novel is basically two things: the calm before the storm and then the storm.

Which is how I approached this playlist. I wanted something dreamy, that plays like water. But I wanted it to have moments where it heats up, like running water. You know?

Songs like What the Water Gave Me and Madness--that are smooth and yet still tense with something. The Time Is Now, Sing to Me, You Should See Me in a Crown and Renegade that grow more and more as you listen. And then there's this almost chaotic quality to Sit / Stay that I felt like I had to include for some reason.
