Well, we got a great review by Seven Seas Cruising Association Bulletin editor Barb Thiesen for Scimitar’s Heir. She and the SSCA have been great supporters of the Scimitar Seas novels, but since the bulletin is a “Members Access Only” page, I’ll post the entire thing here for you.
At last, the next book in the Scimitar Seas series has been released! For those of you anxious to continue the high seas adventure tale of the seamage Cynthia Flaxal, you’ll be happy to know that your wait is over. Scimitar’s Heir is the third book in a series by award-winning writer and SSCA member Chris A. Jackson. Scimitar Moon and Scimitar Sun, the first two books of the four-book series of pirate fantasy novels are both GOLD winners in Fantasy for Foreword Magazine Book of the Year Award.
The action packed Scimitar’s Heir has Cynthia Flaxal and Feldrin Brelak searching for their son, who was stolen at birth by the mer. The mer have taken the seamage’s heir and left in search of the long-abandoned, floating city of Akrotia, which the mer hope to return to its once enchanted glory with the life of the child.
While Cynthia and Feldrin are gone from the Shattered Isles, pirates seek revenge, cannibals seek prisoners and the emperor seeks justice for the crimes of the seamage. Perils near and far threaten to destroy all that Cynthia has achieved. This is another entertaining tale filled with unforgettable characters and boasting a plot loaded with twists and turns.
