if your a reader like me who likes alot of adventure a spunky main character and some romance on the side you will really enjoy this book. Princess at Sea is just as good or even better than the first novel the Decoy Princess. This book has all the great characteristics needed to make a book outstanding.

This book was a great sequel to the Decoy Princess. Although Tess was not the heir to the throne, she had her own skills that more than made up for that lack. She was an apprentice player for the country of Constenopolie. Tess overgoes from incident to harowing incident, until one wonders if there would be a real ending to the book. Dawn Cook is able to keep the reader gripped in her world of intrigue, danger, and romance throughout the entire book. The one aspect that was disappointing was that the ending there were too many loose ends and easy resolves around the secondary characters. Otherwise, the book is worth the time.

Tess, third in line to the throne at Constenopolie, is also apprentice to a player. Players are the real powers behind the throne, using the royals as chess pieces in what they consider a game of power. The magic they possess comes from venom of a Punta cat, a poison that they are able to tolerate, some better than others darts are the players¿ weapon of choice against one another. Now Tess is doing nothing but acting as a mediator on the nuptial cruise of her sister the queen and her new husband.------------------ When pirates take over the ship, Tess manages to kill three before they seize her and the royals. The pirates intend to ransom the rulers but they want vengeance for the three deaths Tess caused. They throw her into a pit with a punta cat that bites her before she escapes. In a stupor she links minds with Jeck, the captain of the king¿s guard, and he is able to magically heal her. When she awakens, her powers are stronger but more unpredictable and her body is producing the venom on her own so that anyone hitting her with a venom dart would probably kill her. After escaping from the pirates, she now must find a way to rescue her sister and her husband.------------------ Dawn Cook is one of the most creative fantasists writing today. Her characters are all fully developed and totally believable, hero and villain alike. Her real talent lies in her ability to create an imaginary world with its own cultures and make the audience feel as if the place and people are real. There is enough action, adventure and romance in PRINCESS AT SEA to appeal to even the most discerning fantasy lover.------------- Harriet Klausner

I absolutely adore this series and wished she had continued Tess's story in a third novel. At least to wrap up the series.

I was very excited to see a sequel to The Decoy Princess and it lived up to my expectations! My only complaint is that the ending left a LOT of loose ends. I keep waiting for another book in this series but I'm not sure if another is coming. Even if there isn't a third book, Definitely read The Decoy Princess and Princess At Sea. You won't regret it.

This is the second book out of two. The first thing you need to know is that the end is clearly made for the possible continuation of the books, but can end where it did. I loved the characters and how they developed. My only problem with the book is that it ended. I love this author and enjoy all her books. I highly recommend reading, and owning all of her works.
