Language: English . Brand New. The Ruling Sea begins where Robert V. S. Redick s acclaimed The Red Wolf Conspiracy ended: Thasha s wedding is hours away. It is a wedding that will both fulfill the promise of a mad god s return and see her murdered. Pazel has thwarted the sorcerer who would bring back the god but both sides now face deadlock. Can Thasha be saved? Can the war between two Empires be stopped? The Ruling Sea is, once again, focused on the giant ancient ship Chathrand, but now she must brave the terrors of the uncharted seas-the massive storms and the ship-swallowing whirlpools-and explore lands forgotten by the Northern world, all the time maintaining a vicious running battle with a ship half her size but nearly her match. A masterpiece of plotting and adventure, Redick s new novel takes the listener further into the labyrinthine plots and betrayals that have underscored the trilogy from the beginning. We learn more about the Ixchel as they fight for survival against the Chathrand s rats, discover more about the true motives of conspirators, live with Thasha and Pazel as they face death and deceit, and watch as the Chathrand sails into the infamous Ruling Sea.

Synopsis : 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.
A compelling read that sets the scene enticingly for the next two parts. (Stephen Jewell SFX)
'The Rats and the Ruling Sea' possesses all of the same outstanding qualities that impressed me in 'The Red Wolf Conspiracy.' Easily one of the best fantasy novels of the year. ( FANTASY BOOK CRITIC)
Robert Redick has taken [the] most hackneyed of fantasy staples and turned it into something special. The Rats and The Ruling Sea is a book that demands commitment, but its unusual setting and quirky ideas make it a rewarding and absorbing read and we look forward to the next installment.
