Death Sets Sail review – Hannah’s Book Reviews

August 8, 2020


Reviews for Death Sets Sail are starting to roll in – and I’m so thrilled to see how positive readers are being!

Blogger Hannah has been reviewing all of the books in the series – like a lot of fans, Hannah has been reading the series since Murder Most Unladylike first came out, and it’s been wonderful to see how her views on the books have changed since she first read them.

She’s now put up her (spoiler free) review of Death Sets Sail, and she says:

At the end of a series, you want a big finish. Something to make the series go out with a bang. Well, Robin Stevens did just that with Death Sets Sail. Packed with suspense throughout, and unimaginable twists and turns, Death Sets Sail was without a doubt the best book in the Murder Most Unladylike series.

Thanks so much, Hannah – and thanks to everyone who’s let me know their thoughts on the final book in the series! Remember that if you’ve FINISHED Death Sets Sail and you want to talk about it with other fans, head to the Spoiler Post – don’t post comments here where people who haven’t read the book yet can see!

I’m very pleased to say that my Behind the Book video, featuring a Q&A, a workspace tour and a reading from the last two chapters of Death Sets Sail, is available to watch NOW on the Puffin YouTube channel. There’s a link below – I hope you enjoy it!
I’ve got a new video on the way! Behind the Book with Robin Stevens will premiere on the Puffin YouTube Channel on Friday 18th September at 6pm BST.
For the rest of September, your prompt will be resolutions. This was suggested by Detective Society member Neve – and it seems like a great choice, since this is the beginning of the school year, a time full of new challenges and big decisions.
I’ve got good news for Scottish fans – I may not be able to come visit you in person this autumn, but I’ll be able to be with you virtually! I’m teaming up with the Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour and Book Week Scotland for a week of absolutely FREE events for Scottish schools.
You have until the 6th of September to send all of your questions about the MMU series, The Ministry of Unladylike Activity, Howl the puppy or anything else you might want to know to a special email address that my publisher Puffin has set up: I’m going to be answering my very favourites on a new ‘Behind the Book’ video, premiering on the 18th of September on the Puffin YouTube channel.

  2. I just read this, I completely agree with every little thing that Hannah wrote about your series, for me, it has been one marvellous, scary, exiting, sad and heartworming rollercoster ride!
    Thank you Robin for this amazing series and even though my copy of death sets sail has not arrived and I do not know how it ends yet, I know that you will have made the right choice for the ending!

  3. Hello Robin,
    I’ve loved reading all of Hannah’s MMU book reviews! They are brilliant and perfect for everyone, whether you have read the MMU series or not. During my MMU reread-athon, I’ve been reading the relevant review after I’ve read each book. I’ve now finished my reread-athon so I’m now reading Death on the Nile. Today I ordered a signed copy of Death Sets Sail from Blackwell’s so I’m so excited to read it! I’m sure it will be amazing.

  4. Hi Robin! I loved Death Sets Sail! I stayed up a bit too late finishing it last night! Thank you for writing an amazing series and I look forward to what comes next!

  5. Thank you so much for this lovely post and for your lovely comments on Twitter about my reviews! I’m so happy that you’ve enjoyed my reviews! Death Sets Sail was the most amazing ending to an incredible series – I loved reading it and I’m so excited for The Ministry of Unladylike Activity.

  6. This is a great review for DSS, it’s so true every word Hannah says about the book, I’ll miss Daisy and Hazel though as this is the last book😭!!!!!!!!!!!!!
