Reviews

This exciting follow-up to 2009's The Red Wolf Conspiracy features enough plot twists and double-crosses to satisfy the most demanding lover of suspense. The powerful Nilstone, most recently held by a living statue who was once an insane god-king, is sought by a wizard who wishes to destroy humanity by sparking war between empires. The whole world believes the ship Chathrand to be sunk, but it secretly survives and carries the Nilstone to the fabled lands of the south beyond the Ruling Sea, while a ragtag group of conspirators battle not only the wizard but their own empire and captain in a desperate attempt to preserve the world. Vivid characterizations and Reddick's brilliant depiction of the microcosmic world aboard Chathrand will captivate readers. (Feb.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Despite its apparent mission of peace, the ship Chathrand has brought the world to the brink of war. Now Thasha Isiq, lately delivered from the travesty of an arranged marriage, and her two companions, deckhands Pazel and Neeps, must stop the machinations of war even though it means confronting the dangers of the Ruling Sea, which no ship has ever crossed. Redick's sequel to The Red Wolf Conspiracy continues his high-seas fantasy epic with more lore of the sea and characters as vivid and real as their colorful setting. VERDICT Fans of sea-based fiction as well as fantasy fans should enjoy this tale of shipboard intrigue and maritime danger. [Also available as an ebook, ISBN 978-0-345-51912-2.] Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
