Description

A ship ne’er returns from o’er the Syrensea

The dragons have resurfaced in Nantai, the Cloud Courtiers are playing dangerous games, and the empire is crumbling. The caste leaders are posturing for power; the price imposed by the Stone Singer leader Sarangarel tells as much. The sum cannot be unpaid, and a blizzard Mairynne cannot see her way through now rages inside Thalaj.

Captain Asahi and his crew sail the Swell Mistress westward, ferrying Mairynne and her party into the unknown in search of the island nation Ise. New adventures on the high seas ensue, but are the storied sea creatures real or lore? A new land comes into view, but is it the island for which they search? Separation from her friends, captivity, a journey through the jungle, and entrance into other-worldly realms await.

Has she reached Ise? The songs of the stones are waning. Is this where she will find her father? How far must she trek inland? And will she be able to make amends with Thalaj before her time runs out?

I have enjoyed reading this series and the characters and world development throughout. I can't wait to read more in this series. Thank you Netgalley and Bronzewood Books for this ARC but all thoughts were my own.

This is the third book of the short Serpentine Throne series, the books are short but I found the story entertaining, one storyline running within all books, and with different stories containing different character's adventures. I love dragons so this is what really got me in, the worldbuilding could've been better, but being this short it was understandable.

Call of the Ryū Dragon by Susan Stradiotto The third in the series, but the story can stand on its own. After rough adventures in the prior books, young Mairynne is one step closer to her goal, to bring back her father,. She faces Rpg scenarios of test of spirit, mind and heart. In this quest she has to give up what she discovers is most important to achieve the freedom of her kidnapped father. For her people can she live with herself with the choice she has to make. She finds new companionship, new magic, and the next step to her quest. Hope the next book will come out soon so we can continue the story.
