This story was so completely different than your typical romance and I feel madly in love with it.
The book starts out troubling straight from the beginning and while I felt the romance within the first couple of chapters – I had no idea it would all pan out.
The story takes places on the open seas on the Kraken – Leif’s father’s ship that they sail; pillaging, killing, and stealing treasures to sacrifice to the sea Gods, as well as keep themselves.
Tides is in the same ‘series’ as Scars, but they are no way related so you don’t have to have read one or the other first. (They are both great!)
I am telling you, if you like ‘old fashioned’ romance, paired with Vikings – this is a must read!! I am promising you; you will not be sorry!
I was riveted throughout this story, wondering myself, how Eilish could keep up the ruse of being a young boy in the middle of ruthless warriors. You can’t help but feel sorry for the situation of not only her, but also of the fate of her fellow thralls. This was a well thought out plot, and each of the characters were either loved or hated. I like this author’s style of writing, and I’m really enjoying this series.
The authors writing, yet again, captured my imagination from the start as Eilish and her father were awoken by screams heard nearby and were forcibly taken and captured as slaves, or thralls as they were called, to be sold to the highest bidder at the slave market. Her fathers quick thinking knowing of the Viking reputation and desperate to keep his daughter as safe as she could possibly be, cut off her long hair into a shaggy boys cut and told her that her life depended on her being taken as a boy. Now harrowingly separated from her father Eilish caught the eye of Leif, the Viking son of Ragna, who felt sorry for the weak looking slave and was bought to be used as a deckhand on their ship, the Kraken, unbeknownst to him that she was actually a girl.
Leif lived almost as a prisoner himself under his fathers hatred who's only concern was to amass enough treasure to be accepted by AEgir, the god of the sea. His only worth to his father was his shapeshifting abilities while they were constantly at sea raiding. The question is will Eilish be able to keep her secret and stay alive under such gruelling conditions and vicious Viking captors and will Leif ever be free of his fathers invisible chains? How will fate play out for both of these loveable characters?
This is definitely an addictive series to read, each story so far has been completely different and I loved them both, highly anticipating the next book release!
Leif is the shifter and though we see him change in to large sea bird for most of the story, the true reason behind him being on the Kraken with his father emerges, and it is a dark and sinister motive on his father Ragnar part to keep his son doing his bidding. You have probably hears the stories of the Kraken on the sea, and in terms of the lore I absolutely loved this take on the tale - I really don;t want to give to much away, but I am sure you can guess - or not like I did.
Whilst Leif and his father are in Duiblinn he comes across a thrall - or slave - whom he buys much to the chagrin of his father who has no hopes of the thrall lasting on the sea, little does Leif know that he has purchased a young woman named Eilish, who was captured during a Finn-Gall raid, and was forced by her father to dress as boy and go by the name of Aiden in order to survive as he did not want the fate of slave women to fall on to her. Soon both their secrets are discovered by each other and Leif has fallen for Eilish and does everything in his power to help protect her from his father.
This was yet another fantastic read from Ms Brown and what I love most apart from the story is Natasha's ability to transport you back in time, with her attention to detail, mythology, lore and fantastic research! I can only imagine what she has in store for us next and I for one can't wait!
