If you're skeptical of sequels, I should point out that Astreya, Book II: The Men of the Sea is in reality a continuation of the story and Book I is not complete without Books II and III. The story picks up minutes after where The Voyage South leaves off, when Astreya is faced with a decision to resist his kidnappers, who turn out to be his only blood relatives, or to willingly learn about them, their astounding technology and skills, and the legacy of the Wanderer's Curse.

Everything I said about Volume I of this splendid trilogy applies with equal force (or more!) to Mr. Hamilton's splendid second volume. Like THE GODFATHER PART II, it is one of those rare sequels that are even better than part 1.

I won a copy through FirstReads!

I am not usually one for seafaring adventures, but the sci-fi/fantasy feel pulled me to finish this book. If you're a fan of pirates, family stories, romance, and adventure...this book is for you. The story starts out with a lot of detail, but then throws you stern and aft into interesting characters and escapades.

Reading the second book first is always awkward for me, but Hamilton gives a decent synopsis at the beginning...so you can play catch-up if you missed...more

The Astreya Trilogy, my nautical fantasy in three books, was published in 2011 and 2012 by Fireship Press, which specializes in nautical fiction and fact.

My editor, Jessica Knauss, who recently founded, heard a recording of me reading from The Laughing Princess, a collection of 12 interrelated fairy tales concerning dragons, and decided to publish it in her own imprint, Acedrex publishing.
