I loved the complexity of this short piece. The action is intense. However, their are welcome scenes of comic relief and tenderness. My favorite aspect of the story was Munny's tenuous friendship with Leonard despite their inability to understand each other. I also loved the glimpses into Munny's past and his determination to return home. The tale stands perfectly on its own, but for those who have read Veiled Rose and other novels, it adds even more depth to this riveting series. I loved seeing Leonard the Jester from another perspective and learning more about the eastern city of Lunthea Maly to which the ship is headed. This story explores themes of prejudice, friendship, true courage, love and sacrifice. Thoroughly recommended. God bless you all.
Munny, a cabin boy, is learning the ropes on his first sea voyage. When a stowaway is discovered on board, everyone expects the Captain to throw him overboard to fulfill the laws of the sea. But when he doesn't, fear grips everyone. Captain Sunan tasks Munny with keeping an eye on the foreigner. As Munny works alongside Leonard, he can't help but be drawn to him. Can the Captain really save the stowaway from Risafeth? Come join the crew in this tale of a sea monster who exacts a heavy penalty on those who cross her.
I really enjoyed this little tale, but I was left wanting to hear more about Munny! Who is he really?! I'm hoping we will hear more about him in later novellas or books. :-) Another masterfully written tale, and I don't know about you, but Shadow Hand can't get here soon enough for me!
The new culture described in this novella, that of seafarers, was amazing and added a new depth to the world of The Tales of Goldstone World. The action was brilliant and some of Lionheart's comments were hilarious.
My one complaint was that it was not long enough. There were a few things that felt as though they should have been explained better or had their own plot twist (the peonies for example). Perhaps they will make an appearance in a later novel? (Looks as Anne Elisabeth in question).
a familiar character or two that were introduced in earlier books. It will help to fill in some of the mystery of where they were before we met them previously. This is a shorter, less complex story with the action taking place in one setting with a single group of characters instead of several storylines going on simultaneously. AES is the Mistress of the Well-Told Tale.
This author's lyrical prose and beautiful illustrations bring to life the tale of a courageous little boy, an amusing stowaway, a mysterious and fascinating captain, a stalwart and heroic old man, and the terrifying "goddess" who demands her tithe.
This book is suitable for children and for adults who appreciate a well-written fantasy.
