The Silver Sea

Praise for The Silver Sea

The Tuscia series is so much fun – it takes us to a fantastical world based on Renaissance Italy, and I love it . . . Another brilliant Belinda Murrell book!

Ashleigh Meikle, The Book Muse

I really can’t rave enough over this new series of Belinda’s! . . . Belinda Murrell takes her readers on another exciting and fascinating adventure through this fictitious, but almost real, land with a real focus on friendship, courage, resilience and initiative throughout. Sophie’s encounters with travelling players and evil sorcerers, a sea monsters and a winged lion and more make for thrilling reading, which is made all the more enjoyable for the introduction to Italian language and cultural references throughout. Another cracking read (and series!) from this delightful author.
