Fiction... Tuesday! Isola di Squalo by Heidi Peltier

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

As the title says, there will be two book review days this week. You'll find out why next week, but let's just say I'm super excited for what is coming! 

**I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

Todays book is Isola di Squalo by Heidi Peltier. This is the first book in her series "The Delmar Shark Chronicles."

Isola di Squalo is about a 17 year old boy named Dylan who is fascinated by sharks. He gets accepted into a program to study all kinds of sharks on an island off the coast of Italy and couldn't be more excited to swim with the sharks. In order for the program to continue they must stay on good terms with the royal family, and Dylan isn't off to a great start. Forced to spend time with the Royal family and become friends with them, Dylan learns the Delmar shark legend. It sounds crazy and Dylan writes it off as a made up story until the sharks start to swarm and he realizes it may be real after all. 

I have to admit, I was more excited to read the second book in the series than I was to read this one. That being said, I have a rule that I don't read series out of order (I used to and it was just way too confusing). So I opened the PDF file Heidi sent me and I started reading. Not even half way through the first chapter I knew I was going to love this book. 

I loved Dylan. He was so excited and passionate it just made me happy. He got to do something he has always wanted to do and it didn't turn out how he expected so he changed his expectations and ended up with an outcome that he would have never dreamed of happening. 

The Delmar Royal family. Love love loved them! Terra drove me crazy at first but now I love her. I love royalty and princesses and princes and palaces and the whole shebang. I actually didn't read the Synopsis on goodreads before I started reading so I was pleasantly surprised that there was a royal family. That is exactly the way to capture my heart. 

I was so sad when the book ended because I couldn't read about the characters anymore. I then realized that I also got a PDF of the second book and immediately opened it up and started reading.
