    1. Ok. Be prepared, guys. I'm basically going to fangirl all over this book.You all know my love for Diana Peterfreund - I've read pretty much everything she's written, and she's totally an auto-buy author for me.With Across a Star-Swept Sea, Diana has completely surpassed herself. This is the best YA book she's written. If you loved For Darkness Shows the Stars, you will ABSOLUTELY love Star-Swept (not least because there MAY be a little cameo by some of your favourite characters). If you enjoyed [...]


    2. What? So, that's it for Elliot and Kai? Nooooooo I HATE it when authors finish off a book when there's still so much stuff that is going to happen in the protagonist's life!!!


    3. 4.5 stars WHERE IS MY SEA MINK. Loooved this. As a huge Scarlet Pimpernel fan, I was skeptical going in, but this is a fantastic retelling, as well as a dashing, romantic adventure on its own. The story line involving Persis' parents--and her own uncertain fate--is touching, too.


    4. Rating: A romantic, fun, original sci-fi twist on a classic that I loved right up until the very end. BOOK, WHY YOU NO HAVE SEQUEL??The story: Overall, I enjoyed this book more than For Darkness Shows the Stars. FDStS was a slow-paced, emotional retelling of a slow-paced, emotional Jane Austen novel: Persuasion, which happens to be one of my favorites evere. Across a Star-Swept Sea is a retelling of The Scarlet Pimpernel, which I have not yet read, but which I understand to be a bit more adventu [...]


    5. This started strong. I was sympathetic to the underlying concept of redoing The Scarlet Pimpernel as sci-fi. I liked Persis, our socialite Pimpernel. And the action does move along entertainingly. Unfortunately, as the world developed I found myself rolling my eyes more and more at the stupid. The characters, who are supposed to be smart do some dumb things -- okay, they're teens. But it needs to be plausible that they haven't gotten caught in their espionage so far. I found the lack of politica [...]


    6. 4.5 starsThank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for a copy of this ARCBased on The Scarlet Pimpernel? Hmmm. That sounded different and interesting.Of course, because I'm a total slacker, I had never actually read Orczy's novel. So. It may be hard to believe, but I decided to bite the proverbial bullet and readlpa classic. Yes ladies and gentlemen, in preparation for this book, I read The Scarlet Pimpernel. I know! I'm impressed with myself, too!As it turns out, Pimpernel is a pretty easy read, [...]


    7. An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review. This did not influence my review in any way.Goodness gracious me. What an amazing, meaningful, thrilling book. Honestly, I expected a lot from Peterfreund, given I really enjoy her writing and storytelling skillz, as well as loved For Darkness Shows the Stars, but oh potatoes! Across a Star-Swept Sea was leagues and leagues better than the first instalment in terms of characters, prose, dialogue, plot, and development! I'm really at a loss fo [...]



    8. Check out Scott Reads It! Across A Star-Swept Sea is the companion to For Darkness Shows The Stars and I'm so glad that Peterfreund decided to revisit the world of the Reduced. Across A Star-Swept Sea took me a while to read due it's extremely slow-pace and there were several times where I felt like abandoning it. I trudged through Across A Star-Swept Sea for a decent part of the book, but then suddenly I decided to put aside all of my books and focus only on this book. I quickly became addicted [...]


    9. Scarlet Pimpernel retelling (FYI I've never read the Scarlet Pimpernel). Persis Blake is our heroine (love her name btw), a pampered rich girl who pretends to only be interested in fashion and parties and gossip, but is actually a Super Secret Spy who goes on rescue missions! This was pretty fun - it felt really swashbuckle-ly, if a little silly. I really liked it at first. But I didn't like how repetitious it was, which I noticed the more I read. Persis's internal monologues keep circling back [...]


    10. Fascinante.Esta autora ya me sorprendió con su anterior libro En la oscuridad resplandecen las estrellas, pero este ha sido aún más increíble. Al principio este mundo distópico que nos presenta es un poco complicado de entender, con el tema de los reducidos, aristos y nor, y toda la nueva terminología que incorpora. Pero una vez que nos hacemos a ello, es taaaaaan enriquecedor para la historia que crea. Es una historia rápida, con buenos personajes y una trama que crea concienciación sob [...]


    11. For Darkness Shows the Stars was the best YA book I've read in many months, so I was eagerly awaiting reading its sequel. And was I ever disappointed. It is more of a companion novel than a true sequel, though still set in the same universe and timeframe. This time, the book is inspired by The Scarlet Pimpernel, with twin island nations in the Pacific subbing in for England and France. In sharp contrast to Elliot and Kai's known world, these islands have embraced technology and invented a cure f [...]


    12. AMAZING. WONDERFUL. FANTASTIC. DEAD. *drops to floor and clutches her heart*.This book was a joy! For being absolutely swoon-worthy, I felt like it wasn't totally focused on the romance, allowing it to build really naturally. (brb, I'm at work LOL).


    13. There's a life lesson in this series for me. Much as I think I'm going to love the books that retell favorites, I'm probably actually going to prefer the ones that retell books I didn't like or that I haven't read. The latter is the case with The Scarlet Pimpernel, though I do have it on my shelves, along with a fifth of the other books I hope to read someday but haven't. Initially, I was a bit skeptical to a sequel to For Darkness Shows the Stars, but Peterfreund weaves Across a Star-Swept Sea [...]


    14. I almost finished this book , before my reading slumps hit and my reading life went disarray yway , it wasn't what I anticipated , the first book in the series was awesome , the story was too gripping , Here it felt like children cartoons rather than a novel .I haven't read or watched Jane Austen's persuasion , so maybe that's why I didn't get the point . any way it's a book I'd try to finish a while from now , just not now . Blah .


    15. For Darkness Shows the Stars was among my top ten favourite books last year. Diana Peterfreund has proven herself again and again with me. I adored her Killer Unicorn series and I adore this one as well. It is no surprise that its sequel, Across a Star-Swept Sea, is just as incredible of a read as the first book is. While not a direct sequel Star-Swept Sea is a companion book to For Darkness… It takes place in a different part of a world ravaged by Reduction, a brain malady that brought civili [...]


    16. Persis has a secret. OK, she has a boatload of secrets. She is not, in fact, the air-headed, fashion-obsessed Queen’s lady-in-waiting that she pretends to be for the court of Albion in New Pacifica. She is the Queen’s number one, aka the Wild Poppy: a secret infiltrator driven to rescue the prisoners of the Revolution on the neighboring island of Galatea.And she is also the daughter of a woman suffering the slow deterioration of her own mind. A disease that is heredity and may lurk in Persis [...]


    17. After being left in awe of the worldbuilding and plot of For Darkness Shows the Stars and reading the short intro novella that came between the first book and this one, I was ready to drop back in the author's post-apocalyptic world for this exciting retelling of The Scarlet Pimpernel. I suppose since this is more companion novel than sequel that Across a Star-Swept Sea could be read standalone or out of order, but I think some of the late crossover elements as well as background make more sense [...]


    18. 4.5 StarsAn absorbing tale of adventure, politics, and with a dash of romance in it, this is the perfect story for all of those readers who want a little something more in their reads.You know? The readers who feel as if no author, no story, can surprise them anymore *hands in the air*(at least it works for old jaded me!)This is probably the most inspired Scarlet Pimpernel retelling that I'll ever read!(Okay, this is the first one I've readbut I doubt that I'll read better! lol)Of course I proba [...]


    19. While I quite liked For Darkness Shows the Stars, I found this one unreadably clunky. Though the analogies to The Scarlet Pimpernel are quite clever, Peterfreund manages to hit several of my stylistic pet peeves: referring to characters by their physical attributes when the reader and the POV character knows their names perfectly well and the descriptor adds nothing to our knowledge; repeating information ad nauseum in an attempt to add tension (Persis must maintain her airhead disguise! No-one [...]


    20. Love the whole idea of a heroine in disguise pretending to be something she's not. Loved all the characters and the development of this futuristic society. So cool!



    21. SET-UPPersis Blake lives on the island of Albion, which very much resembles the natural beauty and climate of Hawaii. During the day, Persis is a frivolous and fashionable socialite, who has nothing more to do than gossip and host lavish parties. But at night, she is secretly the Wild Poppy, undertaking dangerous missions to free the oppressed people of the neighboring island of Galatea. If you know anything about the French Revolution, when the aristocrats were persecuted and murdered for their [...]


    22. For Darkness Shows Stars was easily one of my standout reads this year, and I'm so glad I can say this series gets stronger and stronger. The author is so crazily inventive with the different 'worlds', she can write a 5 book series and I'd gobble them all upWhile we continue to explore the effects of the Reduction on mankind, this book is set on the faraway New Pacifica. The twin islands of Galatea and Albion are abuzz with the latest exploits of the Wild Poppy- who has made his career smuggling [...]


    23. Actual Rating 3.5This and other reviews on my blogMy Friends Are FictionThe Story: This was my second book from Diana Peterfreund, the first being For Darkness Shows the Stars, which was beautifully done. I was beyond excited to learn there would be a companion novel and jumped at the chance to read it. I will admit that Across a Star Swept Sea started off slowly for me. I had trouble getting back into the world and understanding all the intricacies. I think if I had reread For Darkness I might [...]


    24. You can also read this review on my blogIn short: Across A Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund combines an admirable protagonist, an affecting romance, and an engaging story line to make it an exceptional read.In my review of For Darkness Shows The Stars, I mentioned how nice it was to read a satisfyingly complete standalone for once instead of making a commitment to stick it out with a long-winded series with a never-ending amount of loose-ends. Well, that was before Across A Star-Swept Sea was [...]


    25. 2,5 rounded to three stars mainly due to my sentiment for For Darkness Shows the Stars. Even the cameo of Kai and Elliot did little to redeem lousy plot, utopist bragging and characters out of character. Not worth the time.


    26. Estoy plenamente convencida de que la lectura de un libro influye mucho en el periodo de tiempo en el que te encuentres. Y al leer este libro, sin duda, no me he encontrado en mi mejor época. Intentaba superar una crisis lectora y tal vez mi opinión se pueda ver un poco manchada. Así, me costó lo mío engancharme a la trama hasta pasadas las 100 paginas y su compleja trama, enrevesada, ligeramente unida (por su historia) al libro anterior de la saga, tampoco facilitaba las cosas.Haciendo un [...]


    27. What a title! Can't wait to see the cover!I had some initial minor complaints that were swept (see what I did there???) away by the author's assurances, as well as mostly by me reading the book, which is really quite good. Much better than I was expecting. I mean, a Scarlet Pimpernel retelling with a girl as the Pimpernel?? Color me wary. Not only that but I was less than enthusiastic about Peterfreund's For Darkness Shows the Stars. Not so here. We had it all; world building, good smart charact [...]


    28. Sink me, my dear! A VERY well done retelling of the Scarlet Pimpernel starring one ridiculously beautiful Lady Persis Blake! Utterly delightful, both true to the original story and an excellent follow up to FOR DARKNESS SHOW THE STARS (which was a great retelling of Persuasion). I adored Persis and Justen, and once I hit the last hundred pages, I absolutely couldn't put the book down! At one point I thought, I want someone to hold that @##%^% down and beat her with a rock . . . and I was obliged [...]
