Overview

The Ruling Sea (Chathrand Voyage Series #2) by Robert V. S. Redick

The plans of the dark sorcerer Arunis have been thwarted—for now. But the battle for control of the gargantuan ship Chathrand, on which hinges the fate of empires, is far from over. A small band of allies on board, bound together less by trust than by need, must scramble to fight an imperial conspiracy, while the sword-wielding Lady Thasha Isiq and the deckhand Pazel Pathkendle find themselves unwillingly drawn in to Arunis’s shadow games by unexpected secrets. Worst of all, in the belly of the Chathrand there lurks a festering horror, the product of a malevolent power determined to tear down the pillars of the world. Now, as the Chathrand sets course through the vast Ruling Sea—so large it has never been crossed in living memory—the fragile bonds of trust and love between the unlikely allies will be tested to the breaking point as they face unspeakable terrors, unimaginable wonders, and shattering betrayals that dwarf everything that has come before.

Don’t miss the sneak peek at Robert V. S. Redick’s new novel, The River of Shadows, in the back of the book.

I wasn't sure when I picked up Reddick's first book The Red Wolf Conspiracy. The description of little people (the Ixchel) and talking animals (Awakened)gave the impression that it might be light hearted, humorous, fairytale-ish or aimed at younger readers. I was pleasantly surprised that the book was none of these things. This in itself is an accomplishment by the author. In this the second book the principal characters don't know who to trust onboard the great ship Chathrand. There are plots and conspiracies all around. Having the principal characters, good and bad, all contained on the ship builds the tension, and is clever plot idea. It has become conventional in fantasy to send off the principals in different directions all over the created map, where they have there own exploits. Think of Jordan, or most formulaic David Drake. The talking animals are explained as symptoms of magical leakage. They are not all cuddly friends, but experience emotional problems of varying severity due to their "Awakening". The Ixchel are tiny but ferocious, and treated by the larger humans in this world as vermin and killed on site. This seems a little unlikely, I would think people would be more likely to leave a saucer of milk outside the door for them. I am not sure whether they are necessary to the plot, or if the author just liked the challenge of putting them in the mix. He takes on the risk of not being taken as seriously by including them. I recommend you read the books and decide for yourself. I did and have no problems with talking rats and the wee peeps.
