Daughter of the Deep by Rick Riordan
I am Thijs. I enjoy reading (maybe a little too much) and being outdoors. I have a younger brother and my favorite dessert is root beer floats.
Daughter of the Deep is a fantastic novel following a freshman in high school girl and her adventure with the whole freshman class to the sea. This is yet another of Rick Riordan’s outstanding books which include his Percy Jackson series, Magnus Chase series, and many more. This is the first book of an HP (Harding Prescott) series. Also, hopefully not to be the last. This book feels as if you are witnessing the scenes first handed. His writing is so detailed that you can picture the paintings on the wall and flower pots on the desks.
This book follows the Jules Verne theme of 2000 Leagues Under the Sea and Mystery Island. The main characters from Jules Verne’s books are the “Daughter of the Deep” main characters’ older relatives from 150 years ago. If you know Jules Verne and read his book you would immediately understand everything. But you do not need to read his books first. “Daughter of the Deep” makes sure that everything is cleared up for you.
The book starts by introducing you to some of the characters while keeping it very vague to keep the mystery feel to the book. The freshman class is just getting ready to leave for their big trip out to the ocean. But right as they leave, they look behind them to see HP crumbling into the sea. To find out what happens next you will have to wait and see. I highly recommend this book and is one of the best books written by Rick Riordan that I have read in my opinion.
