Book Tour & Book Review: Coasters Rule by Danar Burkard #blogtour #bookreview #fantasticalrealism #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours



Fantastical Realism 

Date Published: September 26, 2023


An adventure of fantastical realism told through the eyes of twenty-year-old college sophomore Sofia Sommers. Traveling to Grand Cayman for spring break, Sofia and her childhood friend are looking forward to a peaceful, relaxing week soaking up the sun and decompressing after mid-term exams. Tragedy strikes and Sofia is rescued by the Coasters, a reclusive tribe of merfolk led by the ethereal, mohawk-haired Empress Sundrea, who is not only a benevolent leader, but a fierce warrior in her own right.

Sofia discovers her misfortune was the work of the Dwellers, a murderous gang of mermen human traffickers hell-bent on creating their own deviant gene pool and ultimately a bloodline of immortal disciples.

Come along with Sofia as she must decide whether or not to put her life on the line and assist the Coasters in their endeavor to reclaim a life-altering piece of their ancient history from the hands of Overlord Mercaro and his barbaric band of Dwellers.




Review
Coasters Rule was such a special book!
Not only did I enjoy the story and the adventure, but I also found a lot of symbolism in the book that I related to real life. 
I found the characters complicated, but in a good way--they had lives that were messy and relationships and complicated! I really appreciated that the author didn't make simple personalities with clear rights and wrongs. 
Also, the imagery in the book was really stunning--it completely transported me to each location in the book.
Great read.
