SeaJourney falls along the same lines as Percy Jackson, in it’s overall feel. It has that age blur that makes it both good for preteens and teenagers, and lots of new concepts to learn. The world in which SeaJourney takes place is a world before the massive flood mentioned in several religions, where most of the earth was full engulfed leaving very few safe places. As a result we get to see sabertooth tigers, mammoths, as well as neanderthals living along side the humans. I admit I wasn’t entirely sure how the neanderthal angle would pan out, but I think the book really made something unique by choosing to include them as well as the role that play in the humans lives.
I really like Arken. He’s the underdog in the Academy. He’s a commoner among royals and really small, which makes him an easy target for bullies…but he doesn’t back down and keeps working towards what he wants in life. It was nice to see him grow a bit as a person and gain true friends that were not ashamed of his low status, as well as stand out among the officer cadets as someone reliable. We do have a few chapters from other points of view, namely Yolantha and Ord. The first is a king of the enemy Tookans, who is in persute of a priceless treasure., and the other is a young Nander who is going through his own tough times with his tribe. The Nader chapters were a bit odd at first because of their simple ways of communication and the adjustment of different words being used for the same things, I came to enjoy them rather quickly.
Overall it’s a really fun book, which tons of new ideas. It’s definitely great for those who enjoy this age range, but don’t necessarily want another demi-god based story.
book to be published. Plenty of action for the young cadets. Not only is the main character having to watch his back for a pair of
enemy cadets, but the enemy that his country has gone to war against, a nation of pirates. The author does a superb job telling
a story from both sides of the war!
