There’s no voting over at Fiction Express this week as it’s the final chapter of Sharon Gosling’s Rémy Brunel and the Ocean of Light. Here are my thoughts about it, please be aware there are spoilers ahead for the chapter.
At the end of chapter 10 we were faced with choosing between Thaddeus staying with Rémy or her making him go and save himself. I was really pleased to see him stay with her, I didn’t like the idea of him leaving her behind. The opening part of the chapter was certainly filled with plenty of tension, I realised I was holding my breath as I read at one point – always a sign of a gripping read for me! I did get really worried when it became clear that whilst both Rémy and Thaddeus had survived they each thought the other had perished, I was very glad that Desai and J intervened! The way Rémy and Thaddeus were both so willing to sacrifice themselves was really heart warming, I was so pleased with the way it all played out with neither of them ending up locked away for stealing the jewel. I loved the epilogue, it was so nice to see what had become of the characters and the open ending means the reader can imagine what happens next. I’m going to imagine Rémy and Thaddeus living a long and happy, if slightly complicated, life together.
I can’t believe that we’ve already reached the end of Rémy Brunel and the Ocean Of Light. It’s been another brilliant book from Fiction Express, I’m looking forward to whatever comes next from them!
