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.
The chapter this week opened with Rémy deciding to go with Abernathy. I was so pleased when we discovered that Desai was still alive, I think he’s a really interesting character and I liked the way he reassured Thaddeus. We got a really interesting glimpse into Abernathy’s world in this chapter, I think it’s an amazing creation. I enjoyed reading the Professor’s story, I like the way that these characters are not straight forward – there are shades of grey to everyone. The tension really picked up in the last couple of pages, I can’t begin to imagine how this is all going to resolve in just two more chapters!
After last week’s slightly easier vote the options this week are once more fiendishly difficult. My choice would be for Rémy to leave her friends behind and go for the diamond in the hope of thwarting Abernathy’s plans.
What did you think of the new chapter? Do you agree with my choice?
