Book summary: 

A tragic tale about falling in love on the world’s most infamous ill-fated sea voyage as heroine, Tess, discovers darker secrets that lie beneath the doomed crossing… and a hidden brotherhood that threaten to tear her lover from her forever.

The RMS Titanic is the most luxurious ship ever built, but for eighteen-year-old Tess Davies it’s a prison. Travelling as a maid for the family she has served for years, Tess is trapped in their employ amid painful memories and family secrets.

When she meets Alec, a handsome upper class passenger, Tess falls helplessly in love. But Alec has secrets of his own… and soon Tess is entangled in a dangerous game. A sinister brotherhood that will do anything to induct Alec into their mystical order has followed him onboard. And Tess is now their most powerful pawn.

Tess and Alec fight the dark forces threatening to tear them apart, never realising that they will have to face an even greater peril before the journey is over…

      At first I though I wouldn’t like this book cause I was not fan of books that were based on something as popular as Titanic. It was just I preferred when someone created something new. I was wrong, mostly.
      You’ve all seen Titanic so yeah you know the story. There is a boy and there is a girl and they fall in love. In this case he is rich and noble and she is just a maid. That’s good enough reason for two of them to apart but it’s not so strict considering that the roles are vice versa. When a rich man falls in love with poor woman then it’s not as shocking as in original story. Now we come to the part that blow me away. I read the blurb and crature is not mentioned so we’ll call it they from now on. So they are something unnaturan and dangerous and author managed to perfectly fit them into the story. Good thing is you have picture of Titanic and everything seems possible. That’s the part I really admire, cause it’s not easy thing to do.
      Partly I wonted to dislike this book so that I can write bad review about using popular things. But the truth is I couldn’t. Even though this was instalove which makes me roll my eyes all over again still I could feel it. Good thing is also that in the end this book could’ve finished differentely and it’d be also very good ending. Maybe I’d love this book more if the end was opposite but I like it this way too.

      I cannot tell you a lot about the stroy cause I don’t want to spoil things for you, but all in all this was an interesting read and I enjoyed. 

Until the next time,

  1. I'm really intrigued by this one. I have never seen the movie Titanic, but maybe I'll give this a try. Thanks for the review!

  2. You've never seen Titanic? Wow, I'm impressed! Then for sure you'll like this book more than I do.

  3. Wait who is they? I am confused >_<
    I never even thought about it but it was a good idea for an author to do this now especially since the anniversary is coming or passed recently.
    I don't get why her dress is so big... it looks like a little kid is wearing it...
    Nice review (:

  4. They are creatures! :) I mean you heard about them but I their name was not mentioned in the blurb so I didn't want to spoil the magic :D
    Depends how you like it, I prefer when things are new and unheard of :)
    Thanks! :)

  5. This is something I would usually avoid. I don't mind a good retelling, but something like Titanic is a subject area I wouldn't want to delve into... if that makes sense. I'm glad you found it interesting overall. Brilliant review, Tanja! :)

  6. I agree with you! I actually though about not reading it, but then I read all those good reviews and gave it a chance. Thank you Sam! :)
