THE RATS AND THE RULING SEA begins where THE RED WOLF CONSPIRACY ended; Thasha's wedding is hours away. It is a wedding that will both fulfil the promise of a mad god's return and see her murdered. Pazel has thwarted the sorcerer who would bring back the god but both sides now face deadlock. Can Thasha be saved? Can the war between two Empires be stopped?THE RATS AND THE RULING SEA is, once again, focused on the giant ancient ship, the CHATHRAND, but now she must brave the terrors of the uncharted seas; the massive storms and the ship swallowing whirlpools and explore lands forgotten by the Northern world, all the time involved in a vicious running battle with a ship half her size but nearly her match.Robert Redick's new novel takes the reader further into the labyrinthine plots and betrayals that have underscored the trilogy from the beginning. Robert Redick's sequel to the acclaimed THE RED WOLF CONSPIRACY is a masterpiece of plotting and adventure. As each page turns the reader shares with the characters the dawning realisation that nothing is at it seems.
The sequel to THE RED WOLF CONSPIRACY takes the Chathrand across the terrors of uncharted oceans and deeper into an age-old conspiracy.

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.
