Shelves: sci-fi, fantasy
I was really hoping this book would be great. Pirates, magic, sci-fi ... I like all those things, and I've seen and read really interesting examples of them in various combinations, but this just fell completely flat.

The characters travel around, do a bunch of stuff without really being given motivation to do so, there's stuff that's clearly meant to be humourous but isn't, and at no point did I feel I was given any reason to care about any of the characters.

Sequel to the mantle of kendis-dai and the story isn't finished, there should be a third book but it leaves us hanging at the end. The reason I gave it 3 stars is 'cos it followed on the story from the first book AND NEEDS TO BE FINISHED.
