Book Shelf: For Wreck and Remnant (Secrets of Itlantis #4) by Kate Avery Ellison

For Wreck and Remnant is the fourth instalment in the Secrets of Itlantis series by Kate Avery Ellison and marks another exciting and highly enjoyable tale that goes to prove that this series just keeps getting better with every new chapter!
Picking up not far after the last book in the series left off, For Wreck and Remnant sees our herione Aemi once again a prisoner of the Dron. Cut off from her people and with Itlantis still reeling from it's latest attack by Nautilus's army, Aemi is unsure of what is in store for her, but knows she needs to find a way back to her family and friends. Hoping to convince the Dron to partner with the Itlantean's to take down their shared enemy of Nautilus, Aemi must make some tough decisions, and as it becomes clearer than ever that not everyone can be trusted, Aemi's only hope is if she can convince people who have nothing but hate for Itlantis to help save it.
Wow! Kate Avery Ellison never fails to captivate me with this series. Wonderfully written, Secrets of Itlantis is just a good solid read. Each instalment is exciting, action packed and addictive. The stakes continue to get higher and higher and Ellison manages to add a new layer of complexity to the storyline with every book. I can't fault the way Kate Avery Ellison paces, explores and develops this series and love the way different aspects of Aemi's life, Itlantis, Dron and above the sea worlds have all come together.
Aemi remains a strong and worthy heroine and continues to walk a dangerous line between political unease, threats on her life and outside war between different races of people. Lives are on the line and unbelievably, it all seems to sit on Aemi's shoulders, something the surprisingly strong young woman manages to handle well with her heart, emotions and capabilities all repeatedly put to the test!
I love all the characters we've met throughout the series for one reason or another and have loved seeing them compliment the storyline. Each minor character Aemi interacts with has a purpose and role to play and Kate Avery Ellison has them play it wonderfully. Namely there are a few standouts for me (*cough* Nol *cough*) but that doesn't mean each individual doesn't bring something wonderful to the series because they do. I'll be sad to see them all go after the final book.
With the danger Nautilus poses to the Itlanteans and the Dron stronger than ever, Aemi and her friends are preparing for the final battle and sees enemies become allies in an effort to stop the biggest threat to them all. Kate Avery Ellison has woven together a complicated history where Aemi is concerned throughout the series, and with revelations made with each novel Ellison appears to be prepared to reveal all and I for one can't wait to see what she has up her sleeve in the final novel, In Dawn and Darkness. I just know it's going to be epic!
