Thorn is a member of the Pilot’s Guild - those who possess the magical ability to navigate Crosspointe’s deadly seas. When a malevolent master within the Guild bans him from the sea, it seems his life is over. Then he is kidnapped and forced to serve aboard the rogue ship Eidolon - pitch black from bow to stern - and Thorn finds himself battling a mad captain, a mutinous crew, and the terrifying magic of the sea.
But there is a saboteur on board, trying to make sure the Eidolon never arrives safely in port. Thorn begins to realize his kidnapping may have been no mere chance - and that the cargo the black ship carries may seal his doom.…
I enjoyed this one better than the first book in the series, and I have to admit to being intrigued by the world-building and the story arc that seems to be developing, but there's just something about the characters that falls short. They just don't behave quite realistically sometimes, and I find it a bit jarring. I think I'll continue with the series, though, to find out what happens.
