Publisher's Summary

A thrilling new fantasy series - full of deadly magic, double crosses, and a dangerous quest in a new world - from Sara Raasch, the New York Times best-selling author of the Snow Like Ashes series

Adeluna is a soldier. Five years ago, she helped the magic-rich island of Grace Loray overthrow its oppressor, Argrid, a country ruled by religion.

But adjusting to postwar life has not been easy. When an Argridian delegate vanishes during peace talks with Grace Loray’s new Council, Argrid demands brutal justice - but Lu suspects something dangerous is at work.

Devereux is a pirate. As one of the stream raiders who run rampant on Grace Loray, he scavenges the island’s magic plants and sells them on the black market. But after Argrid accuses raiders of the diplomat’s abduction, Vex becomes a target. An expert navigator, he agrees to help Lu find the Argridian - but the truth they uncover could be deadlier than any war.

Benat is a heretic. The crown prince of Argrid, he harbors a secret obsession with Grace Loray’s forbidden magic. When Ben’s father, the king, gives him the shocking task of reversing Argrid’s fear of magic, Ben has to decide if one prince can change a devout country - or if he’s building his own pyre.

As conspiracies arise, Lu, Vex, and Ben will have to decide who they really are...and what they are willing to become for peace.

Critic Reviews

"An action-packed political thriller filled with betrayal, plot twists, and touches of romance." (Booklist

"Full of mesmerizing magic, political intrigue plotted in dark grottos, and a cast of sharp-witted rogues, These Rebel Waves swashbuckled its way into my heart and never let go. Raasch has outdone herself with this new series. You won’t want to put it down.” (Evelyn Skye, New York Times best-selling author of The Crown’s Game and The Crown’s Fate)

"Ambitious, smart, and breathlessly fun. A richly drawn world, multiple plot twists, and characters you’ll find yourself cheering for again and again make These Rebel Waves the kind of book where ‘just one more chapter’ just isn’t enough." (Claire Legrand, author of Furyborn)

Love the story, not the narrator

I listen to my audio books on 1.25 speed, and I still found this narration too slow. I really didn’t like her tone or inflection or characters, so it took me a bit to get into. Once I got past her tho, I loved the book and plot overall.

Fantastic!!!

it's hard to find a great teen fantasy book that isn't annoying and predictable, but this book is neither of those things!! I cannot wait for book two.
