I stayed up late to finish this because sleep is for the weak and this book is AMAZING. (Though, it’s from Jill Williamson. I’m not sure what else I expected.) It’s supposed to be a novella, so I’ll keep it short, but count me a rejuvenated fangirl.

The plot:

Like the rest of this series, there are several perspectives we follow through the course of the book. I didn’t expect to be surprised as often as I was. Several times, I was predicting one outcome and got one very different. There

The fourth episode of Jill Williamson's Kinsman Chronicles takes courtly intrigue to a whole new level. Actually, it takes it out to sea.

Following the cataclysmic events of the previous installment, we find an entire race of people living at sea, searching for a new home. It's like Battlestar Galactica with sailing ships.

Intrigue, betrayal, and giant sea serpents. What more could you want?

Easy, entertaining read - but it drives me crazy that the books end with so many questions...

A great series. Well worth the read. The characters are not one-sided, but are complex. It is interesting to see how the story is developing. Can't wait to read the next one. ...more
