Overview

Sequel to National Bestseller Carousel Sun. A gripping contemporary fantasy thriller from master storyteller Sharon Lee, award-winning cocreator of the highly popular Liaden Universe® saga.

NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED

Welcome to Archers Beach in the Changing Land, the last and least of the Six Worlds, where magic works, sometimes, and the Guardian husbands the vitality of the land and everyone on it -- earth spirit and plain human alike.

Kate Archer, Guardian and carousel-keeper, has been busy making some changes of her own, notably beginning a romantic relationship with Borgan, the Guardian of the Gulf of Maine, Kate's opposite number, and, some would say, her natural mate.

Oh, and she's been instrumental in releasing the prisoners that had been bound into the carousel animals -- which she's inclined to think is a good thing. . .

Until a former sea goddess sets up housekeeping in the Gulf of Maine, challenging Borgan's authority; endangering Kate and everything she holds precious.

. . .because the goddess has fallen in love in Borgan; and she'll stop at nothing to possess him.

Archers Beach is about to suffer a sea-change -- and the question is whether Kate can survive it.

Nationally best-selling co-creator of the Liaden Universe® saga, Lee brings high energy action and romance to this tale of contemporary fantasy and redemption.

About Carousel Tides:
“[A] pyrotechnic finale that plays out magically behind the ordinary facade of smalltown Maine life, evoking much of the romance and magic of [Lee’s] popular Liaden series.” –Publishers Weekly

"[A] virtuoso ride, full of the spirit of the carnival, aware of the thinness of the veil between the worlds. . .a rollicking tale full of non-stop action. . .and yet there's also a quiet at its heart, because there really is this magic in everything and Sharon Lee knows how to spin it."–SFsite

On Sharon Lee & Steve Miller’s Liaden Universe® Space Opera Epic:
“Lee and Miller’s novels are full of action, exotic characters, plenty of plot, and even a touch of romance. The world building is outstanding.” –Booklist

Meet the Author

Sharon Lee
Sharon Lee has been married to her first husband for more than half her lifetime; she is a friend to cats, a member of the National Carousel Association, and oversees the dubious financial schemes of an improbable number of stuffed animals. Despite having been born in a year of the dragon, Sharon is an introvert. She lives in Maine because she likes it there. In, fact, she likes it so much that she's written four novels set in Maine: mysteries Barnburner, and Gunshy, as well as contemporary fantasies Carousel Tides and Carousel Sun. With the aforementioned first husband, Steve Miller, Sharon has written eighteen novels of science fiction and fantasy–many of them set in the Liaden Universe® –and numerous short stories. She has occasionally been an advertising copywriter, a reporter, photographer, book reviewer, and secretary. For three years, she was executive director of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and was subsequently elected vice president, and then president of that organization.

    You can enjoy this without having read the other two in the series (Carousel Tides and Carousel Sun) - I left it sitting in the living room and my husband, who hasn't read the others, is now halfway through it - but really, I recommend you buy them all and read them in order for maximum enjoyment. The worldbuilding has a strong sense of place and similarly the magic of many of the characters is linked to their home territory. The Maine town of Archer's Beach and its amusement park are vivid and real. There are regular townfolk - although some can hear the music at Midsummer - and alongside them live the not-quite-human.

    If you've read the other books, you'll enjoy seeing more of the characters (and a few new ones) and learning more about the continuing story of the carousel that is also a World Gate.

    Highly recommended.

    Enjoyed it immensely. Only sad because this is the third book in the series. Afraid that there might not be another one.
