First book of 2019! This is a creative story about a time-traveling sea captain and his daughter, told from her perspective. He's in search of his lost past, and she's just trying to grow up and not be destroyed when he finds it. Their supporting deckhand, "tutor", thief, and all-around man of talent, Kashmir, is a real highlight of the book. The book rather unnecessarily sets up a love triangle sub-plot, but it's kind of half-hearted as if even the author realizes that everything else in the book is way more interesting. Sky herring? Mini dragon? Clay warriors from a tomb? Hawaiian myths and legends? Bag of holding? Travel through time and space via belief in old maps, real or not? Fantastic!
