One of my favorite ways to find new authors (especially furry ones) is to surf around in the dustier corners of Amazon and other such sites until I happen upon an interesting story penned by an author whose work I have never read. In the past, this practice has introduced me to more than a few hidden gems, and, given its premise and gorgeous cover art, I purchased this book with the hope that it would be one such gem.

Unfortunately, instead of a gem, a got a lesson in why some things are better left alone in the dusty corners of obscurity.

Flood Waters Rising tells the tale of Sithon Flood, a relative to Toraus Flood, a fellow whose treacherous actions caused both him and his family to be exiled until his death. The novel opens with the death of the aged Toraus, thus freeing his nephew, Sithon, and Sithon’s mother, Vaedra, from exile. However, shortly after Toraus’ death, both Sithon and Vaedra are forcefully taken in by Wardan, a mad scientist with the ability to raise the dead. Wardan wants to continue what Toraus put into motion and become the ruler of Rakaria, using the unwilling Sithon and his family as pawns.

One flaw I noticed immediately after picking up this book was it’s grammar. I’m aware that typos happen. Heck, I make them all the time myself. For all I know, I’ve made one in this review. It’s just another part of human error, and, ordinarily, a small typo – even a small handful of typos – wouldn't be a big deal to me. However, when there is a typo on every other page because someone doesn’t know how grammar works, then we have a problem. For every line of dialogue that is written correctly, there are a dozen riddled with errors.

Format: Paperback
Interesting blend of sci-fi and fantasy. Each character has an inborn ability similar to a superpower, so there are magic-like feats of strength, healing and pyrokinesis set against virtual reality technology and war machines. Science and fantasy combine especially well in the antagonist, a sadistic scientist with the ability to raise the dead. The main character, Sithon, starts out as an oucast with no knowledge of science, until he is forced to address his grandfather's legacy in the developed world. There is a war at hand, with factions and motives I found difficult to follow -- but my eyes tend to glaze over after a few lines of SFF politics, so take my opinion with salt.

I mostly liked the story's direction and description. Sithon struggles believably with the transition into his new life. The narrative often describes the outward appearance of new electronic devices, in the laborious way of someone who doesn't understand this strange device. I also liked the treatment of the non-human characters. The Geedar race are anthropomorphic canines, so they notice scents much more than a human would, and they use techniques such as scent-testing security checkpoints. Canine body language is often used, particularly in the silent "huntspeak" language. Human-like traits are balanced with enough distinctive, dog-like ways that the Geedar seem believable for what they are.

The downside of the prose was that I found some things overdescribed. New locations are laid out in detail, with particular attention paid to the relative locations of everything. Minor actions like opening a door might get two full sentences of specific breakdown.
