Escape. That’s what drives Taran to join the Riverdrivers aboard Geillidh: escape from the farming and fishing village of his kin; the lure of adventure and, most of all, the presence of Merimac—Wyr-chieftain of Geillidh and Taran's first lover.

There was no actual plot. I kept waiting for something to happen but nothing ever really did...

Ah, the RiverMaster and his young swabbie. Yum.

Beautifully written tale of adventure and love on the river wild. the atmosphere is vivid, the characters are instantly compelling and the world is wonderfully enveloping. I felt the spray, I smelled the river-wrack, and I fell instantly in love with Taran and Merimac. The 'December' in this May-December relationship is probably more like an August, and dayum, he's certainly got the *cough* drive to give young Taran a run for his money.

A terrific sh

It felt like I was dropped into a story. Sometimes that works out very well. Not in this one. At 22% I still knew nothing about anything except:
1. they were sailors, 2. someone was screwing the boss sailor aka cousin, and 3. there was a storm/rough patch?.

Also lots and lots of words that meant nothing to me because it was not explained.

Normally I would soldier on but I'm a bit done with these kind of stories...

So not for me but maybe someone else?

Considering I bought this book because I am in love with Hennig's seriesThe Wode, I was kind of disappointed in this short novela. I guess I felt that enough didn't happen and that I couldn't imagine Mac and Taran together and saw no romance in their relationship.

I will always love Hennig's Wode series but I will not be reading this one again

Enjoyable short story, but definitely to short for higher rating. I wouldn't mind reading a longer version.
