For those who have read the earlier books, I highly recommend SEA AND SAND. Nile is back in full form, and so is Domenic. Their relationship gets complicated by the demands of rank and hierarchy, while they try to get the Diante Empire to join the Lyron League against the Tirik Republic’s war.
Many characters I love are back – Tam, and Aaron, and Quinn. So is Catsper (whom I also love), and we get surprising, and revealing, insights into that enigmatic man.
I can’t say more for fear of spoilers, except to add that while this doesn’t end on the edge of a cliff, it does beg for another book. Which thankfully is coming!
Note: this book is dark enough that I wouldn’t recommend it for the youngest of teens.
My only trouble with these books is how they end suddenly and not with a complete ending but not really with a cliff hanger either, just odd ending choices by the author.
Highly recommended reading for anyone who loves sea adventures, magic, and fantasy.
First, she continues the story of Ash, a young woman juggling royal duties, naval aspirations, and trying to manage her complicated marriage and relationship to her true love.
Next, besides the core characters, Lidell adds Kyra, a woman with little interest in the ongoing wars yet finds herself part of events larger than she could have expected.
Finally, when the book goes to the unexpected.. damn does it go there.
If new to the series, I recommend starting from the beginning. These are brisk, enjoyable reads. But do read them, and enjoy.
One of the strengths of this book is the addition of co-narrator Kyra (unrelated, but this is the 3rd book I've read with a Kyra in as many weeks). She quickly joins the main squad in terms of depth of character and giving emotional weight to the story. Her part of the narration offers a balance to Nile's fast-paced descriptions of ship life and her inner struggles.
Speaking of struggles: as hinted in the book description, Nile and Domenic continue to butt heads. However, there is growth and resolution so perhaps there's hope.
Tamiath receives a disappointing amount of page time, and most of this is in the beginning exposition. This is understandable, as he is not a naval officer, but we spent so much time getting to know him at the end of the last book that I missed his presence in this one.
Overall, Sea and Sand is a solid read. The beginning was slow, and it made me start to fear for all the things I really wished would not happen (Nile's obstinacy, manipulation through secret revealing, unnecessary angst because of miscommunication), but these did not come to pass. By the second half I was riveted, for the action but also for the development in Nile and Kyra.
Note: I received a free e-copy from a giveaway.
She gives the reader all of he action and suspense we come to know and love, but with new twists and new characters, especially our new narrator Kyra.
Nile and Domenic Continue to deliver the excitement with romance and also butting heads as usual.
It all comes together for a wonderful adventure only Alex can provide.
Thank you Alex for a suburb tale!
