Er mind Two years ago river raiders robbed Poe of everything And she wants revengeAs she navigates the treacherous waters and realises there's a Thank you so much to Penguin Teen and Dutton books for an early copy of this book in exchange for my honest reviewThe Last Voyage of Poe Blythe was a surprising read for me it follows Poe on her journey of revenge following the death of the person she loves But the story is so much than that Poe is stricken with grief which turns to anger She uses that anger to build up her walls and build up the armor on the machines they use in the book to gather gold from the Serpentine river But Poe's limits are tested when she's forced to accept help from people she would never trust But that's because Poe doesn't trust anyone It definitely made for an interesting storyThe story flowed very well I never felt confused from chapter to chapter and honestly you'd be a bit surprised how often I noticed that in books that I read I don't like stories that jump around a lot There were a few flashbacks here and there but they were integrated into the story very wellPoe Really I adored her I found her to be realistic Her grief can be truly felt and the aftermath of what happened made the story and how she reacted feel even authenticI have read reviews where people felt like she suddenly changed and suddenly started to trust people but I didn't really get that vibe from the story It seemed like her character progression was seamless If you're like me and you tend to like unlikeable characters I think this book is definitely for you I truly felt like finding yourself was such a pivotal point to the bookThe dredge was such a cool setting for the story I think that the close uarters everyone was forced to live in really brought out the trust issues Poe had and it added to the story in such a vibrant way It's dirty it's grimy and I loved itWhat I Didn't LikeWhile I felt like the story flowed well I found myself wondering again and again where we got to where we were I wish there was a bit back story on why the Outpost exists and why the Drifters fought against them You get a bit information towards the end but I think this story would have benefited a bit from a clearer beginningWhile I liked Poe I wish we would have had backstory or development for the supporting characters While the book isn't big 324 pages in my paperback copy I craved information on everyone Which is especially sad considering I loved how close uarters the setting was I found myself sometimes struggling to remember who was who which often made me want to go back and re read chapters and no one has time for thatAll in all I liked this book Was I madly in love with it? No But I did enjoy it I read it in over about 4 days Ally has a clear concise way of writing that doesn't bog down the story If you're looking for a book about grief and how one changes because of it I think this is a great book for you
