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.

"The Ruling Sea" at least managed to introduce me to characters I really cared about and liked, a plot that I could follow and only ...
If you are following my ramblings reviews, you have probably read how much I liked The Red Wolf Conspiracy, first part of Chathrand Voyages. Not even a rough start with too much jumping between characters could dampen my enthusiasm. But, as often happens to me when I like the first part in series ...
Lots of surprises in this volume. Mr. Redick has managed to create a fantasy novel that follows a storyline much different than the norm. "The Ruling Sea" is a highs seas adventure, where heroes and villains alike are trapped on the same ship, attacking when they can and holing up to lick their wo...
Surprisingly enjoying this series. It's not perfect by any means, but I care about the characters and what is going to happen to them. Also, a WHAT A TWIST!! ending that I totally didn't see coming.
