The House at the End of the Sea by Victoria M. Adams


Summary:

Saffi doesn't want her new life, living with her dad, little brother and old-fashioned grandparents in their B&B by the sea. She is grieving for her mum and longs for things to go back to normal.

 

But this new home is anything but normal: the walls change colour, a face appears in the mirror, and the pantry is suddenly filled with fancy food. When a party of extraordinary visitors arrive at midnight, Saffi begins to realise that her family has a dark, magical secret. It will take all her bravery to discover the truth and find a way into another world...

Author Information

Victoria M. Adams spent her childhood bouncing between Cyprus, Canada and the US with her Iranian mother, trying to achieve first place in the ‘Most Visas Acquired Before Age Eighteen’ sweepstakes. As an adult, she carried on the nomadic family tradition by adding France and New Zealand to the mix, where she worked as an animator, copywriter, tutor and story coach, in no particular order. She currently shares her London home with two humans and a feckless cat.

 



When I saw the tour announcement for The House at the end of the Sea I was so intrigued. As I was reading I kept getting pulled out of the story but it was the wonderful atmosphere and how the house felt more like a character which was nicely done by Victoria.


For me Saffie was an okay Main Character but for me if the story was concentrated more on Milo who seemed to be something special and would of taken the story to the next level.


For all the above reasons The House at the end of the Sea receives 3 stars.
