4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Sneaky Burrito TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 15, 2013
Format: Paperback
Carolyn Ives Gilman's Isles of the Forsaken was one of my favorite books of 2011. I was therefore excited to find out that the sequel, Ison of the Isles, was out.

It's not a bad book -- I'd recommend it, and read to the end of this review to find out why -- but I'm not as enthused about Ison as I was about Isles. Couple of brief reminders from the previous book, that should help you throughout the rest of this review: islanders consist of Tornas and Adainas, two distinct groups who have banded together for a rebellion, though there are some inter-group tensions. There are also Lashnura, who ally themselves, generally speaking, with the other islanders, and who have some spiritual and/or mystical healing powers. Lashnura are quite rare.

Part of the problem may be something that stems from my own personal taste. There are a lot of naval battles in this book, or at least there seem to be. The islanders are at war with the Inning Empire and since island territories are the prize of war, naval battles are to be expected. Now, Gilman is a historian, and I have no doubt she wrote accurate descriptions of naval warfare. But I am just not interested in accurate descriptions of naval warfare. I tended to gloss over these sections. If you like that kind of thing, well, then this book is definitely for you.

But let me back up a bit. The first couple of chapters were about Spaeth (a Lashnura woman) and Nathaway (an Inning man who has "gone native," so to speak), and I was really interested in what was going to happen with them.
