The Bright And Breaking Sea by Chloe Neill | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To The Bright And Breaking Sea by Chloe Neill?

Who doesn’t love a good high seas adventure? The Bright And Breaking Sea by Chloe Neill had a cover that instantly caught my eye. And then, I guess it just gave me some Jacky Faber vibes, so I knew I wanted to listen to it ASAP. Add in a little bit of magic and I was sold on listening to this audiobook sooner rather than later. Plus, I’ve heard of Chloe Neill but have never read her books before. This was a great starting point.

What’s The Story Here?

The Bright And Breaking Sea follows Captain Kit Brightling as she is sent on a mission by Queen Charlotte to rescue a spy from pirates. The queen teams Kit up with Rian Grant who is a veteran of the Continental War and someone who has a different perspective from Kit. You see, Kit has a magical affinity with the sea and that’s not always held in the best regard. Still, she’s an efficient and excellent captain and one of the few women to work her way up so high. In order for the mission to save the spy to be a success, Kit and Grant need to learn to trust each other. But, at the same time there’s a snake in the grass in the midst and they’ll need to root out who the betrayer is.

What Did I Think Of The Bright And Breaking Sea?

I actually found The Bright And Breaking Sea to be so enjoyable and engaging. I listened to it over a short period of time and just fell for the world and for Kit. She’s amazing. You see, she started life raised up in a home for foundlings and orphans. She rose above some terrible circumstances to really make something of her life. Plus we have the mistrust to trust relationship between Kit and Grant — and yes there is chemistry there and it kept me listening.

How’s The Narration?

The audiobook is narrated by Danielle Cohen. It is 10 hours and 55 minutes long and completely compelling. Cohen’s narration reminded me a little of the late Katherine Kellgren. I think because her voice is really melodic and soothing to listen to. Still, the narrator does bring her own unique spin and style to the audiobook. I felt like this was a total win of a listen and I can’t wait to listen to more books from this series as they come out.
