The Guild of the Cowry Catchers is, quite possibly, my favorite series of books in existence. Being able to revisit those much loved characters, read more about the newer characters of Panamindorah then have them all come together was great.
Thank you Abbie for, once again, providing an amazing piece of literature that I will enjoy many more times.
This book is part of a larger series that follows the lives of various characters. These characters are like nothing you've ever read before.
I highly recommend you read the entire series.
Meanwhile, the cast of THE SCARLET ALBATROSS is making its own way toward Holovarus. They join the action in the second half of the book, and soon find themselves dragged into the island's problems. Several of these characters have complex ties to the COWRY CATCHERS crew, and this leads to all sorts of interesting character drama as the two parties learn how to trust each other and work together.
This is a book about picking up the pieces after your world falls apart on you. THE GUILD OF THE COWRY CATCHERS was an epic tale of revolution, with gods and magic and desperate battle against a dark ruler. But when the revolution wins the day and the evil queen (or priestess) is toppled, it doesn't mean happily ever after. More often than not, it means an awful, bloody mess. Our heroic revolutionaries are now just ordinary men and women, caught up in a tide of events they started but cannot control. In the face of a world gone mad, their focus narrows: no longer concerned with trying to save all of Wefrivain, now they just want to save the people they love.
Fans of the world of Panamindorah will love this book for the tender character moments, the intimate family dramas, and the swashbuckling high-seas action (of which there is quite a bit, even despite the smaller stakes of the story). This is a big book, and all those pages give room for the story to breathe. There are a lot of characters here, both old and new, and they all get their chance to shine.
I’ll admit that, not being as familiar with the characters from “The Guild of the Cowry Catchers” as I was with those in the previous book in this series, “The Scarlet Albatross,” that when the first section of the book focused on “Cowry Catchers” characters, that I was less engaged. But that didn’t last. Unfortunately for me, I soon grew to like (and root for) that group of characters as much as I had with Silas and Anaroo and Gus from the first book.
And then, both groups get together, and somehow, she’s able to keep several plates spinning as everyone gets a plot, subplot, romance, action scene, or injury. Questions asked in the previous book get answered, and several new questions are posed. There was intrigue and violence, sex and politics, sea battles, fashion, butterfly hunts, drinking, and cannibalistic children (a perennial favorite of mine). When the book ended (and I barreled through it), I was hooked and looking forward to the next book in the series. However, this doesn’t just end in the middle of the action, there is a rising action and climax that satisfies. I don’t know how she does it.
I guess I’ll now go and think about my life choices.
