I am a big fan of this author, and I admit I wasn’t sure I was going to like the novellas he was going to write. I was completely wrong; these have been so fun! This one was especially a good time, while advancing the plot so much. These novellas are building to the end, and I can’t wait until then. While waiting, we are treated to a glimpse into these characters in saving Vesik. The end has many twists and turns, and now I have to wait until the next one, but thankfully not too long. One thing ...more

Eric R. Asher should give a master class in world building. Every book in this series just brings out more and more of this universe, and brings me deeper and deeper into it! As Vicky and crew embark on their voyage to save Vesik, the reader feels as if they are on the ship, right next to all the characters. For those that are just coming into this world, do yourself a favor and read the previous books. It will make this one all the more special. Trust me.

A story in a story!

Eric Asher has packed so much action into this novella that it left me breathless to the point of almost needing CPR. My heart even stopped a couple of times. It has laughter as well as all the action you expect! You won't want to put it down until you are done reading chapter after chapter after chapter! Chores, food, phone calls, and if you have kids, they can wait until you are done! Well, done sir!

Every time I think Eric Asher’s writing can’t get any better, he manages to surprise me and top his previous book. The Book Of The Sails kept me glued to my Kindle and on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Watching almost this group of friends work together to save Vicky, Sam and Damian is completely absorbing. I’m so grateful to my friend who told me I had to read the Vesik books. You were right Melinda!

Amazing Adventure

Please tell me how Eric Asher can write such good stories — all of the time!! No, don’t tell me. It will ruin the mystery.

Mr. Asher hits it out of the park AGAIN! Of all the novels in the books of the dead I find this one the most “fun.” Seriously, pirates, demons, ghosts, pandas, necromancers, death bats and I think I saw some dead people. I thoroughly enjoyed this installment.

The ending, however, oh my! His ending just get you good. Twists like you wouldn’t imagine.

The Book of the Sails is my new favorite Vesik novella. It's like a high-seas action adventure with one of the most unique (and deadly) treasure hunting pirate crews ever. I'm always kind of wowed by how much awesomeness Mr Asher can pack into such a short read. Excellent installment to the series.

For those who want to know: This one has violence, half a dozen F-bombs but no sex.

The Book of Sails is the fourteenth book in the Vesick series. This book should not be read as a standalone or you will be confused with the storyline. There is violence and use of magic. Damien's friends are still trying to free him. In this shorter book they join up with Blackbeard and his crew to continue collecting the items they need. I love these "side" stories!

The Author continues to give us insight into the Misfits pasts, and tease us through another set of trials, and another book of torture for those of us rooting for Team Vesik!
It's a fantistic book that I highly recommend!

Pirates and fire demons

The gambles have been made. The action is starting to pick up. Greybeard gets his time to shine but let's face it, Luna wins this book hands down.

My only request now is for Mr. Asher to remake MST3K with Luna, Vesik and a rotating cast of boorish people.

You gotta love a pirate ship!

I am absolutely adoring these books from the other main characters from Damian Vesiks world. I love following the progression of stories that not only continue the quest but allow such a huge insight into the lives and thoughts of the others. Bring on the next book!

Another great in the Vesik series. The "Book Of The...." is not only moving the Vesik story line along , but also gives a perfect mix of backstory from different character POV
