    In a world of sea monsters, mermaids and lost islands, ghost ships, leviathans and weather witches, only the impetuous, the brave or the mad seek adventure at sea. . . After generations of friction, the leaders of two lands meet in the holy city of Ishalem to bring an end to the bloodshed and to divide the world between them.

    "Decent read if you read Saga of the Seven Suns"
    Overall

    I was a huge fan of Sage of the Seven Suns so I had to give this one a read. I am not going to comment on the narration, Scott Brick did a good job. The story is good but it starts of very confusing. It took me about half way though the book until I realized who was with what fraction. Anderson does a good job re-iterating who is with who, so eventually you will get it. This is very similar to the Seven Suns except this story has a lot less action. If you like the political aspects of Saga then I am sure you will enjoy this read. Anderson did a great job of creating scenarios I didn't see coming. There is one in particular that just shocked me. I don't want to give it away but I was pleasantly surprised and this action seemed to "fit" with what Anderson was building up to all along for this character. I was just surprised in the way and suddenness it took place. All in all a decent/average read. Saga was much better, and I think Anderson feels more comfortable writing in a sci-fi world but this was a decent attempt on his part. I am still undecided if I want to get the next one. It was decent enough for me to consider the next one, but not so great that I have to see how this story ends. Basically this is an average story.
