Voting’s closed over at Fiction Express for this week so it’s time for me to share my thoughts on the latest chapter of Sharon Gosling’s Rémy Brunel and the Ocean of Light. Please be aware there are spoilers ahead for the chapter.
For the first time the vote went in a different direction to the one I voted for, and I’m really glad that it did. The winning vote saw the introduction of the Professor who turned up at just the right moment to help Thaddeus to escape. Within a couple of paragraphs I loved this new character, I definitely think he’s going to add a lot to the story. I really liked the section when he and Thaddeus went back to his workshop, the descriptions were wonderful. I liked the range of ingenious inventions, particularly the idea of a steampunk rocket pack! I was very happy towards the end when Rémy and J made an appearance and their path crossed with Thaddeus’ – I hope they find a way to work together now.
My vote this week was for Thaddeus to agree to listen to Rémy’s story, and take them back to the Professor’s workshop.
What did you think of the new chapter? Do you agree with my choice?
