About the Book:
Title: AIR AND ASH
Author: Alex Lidell
Pub. Date: May 2, 2017
Publisher: Danger Bearing Press
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Master and Commander meets Tamora Pierce in a seafaring adventure of duty, love, magic, and a princess’s quest to protect her kingdom on her own terms.
After a lifetime of training, seventeen-year-old Princess Nile Greysik, a lieutenant on the prestigious Ashing navy flagship, sails into battle with one vital mission—and fails.
Barred from the sea and facing a political marriage, Nile masquerades as a common sailor on the first ship she can find. With a cowardly captain, incompetent crew, and a cruel, too-handsome first officer intent on making her life a living hell, Nile must hide her identity while trying to turn the sorry frigate battleworthy. Worse, a terrifying and forbidden magic now tingles in Nile’s blood. If anyone catches wind of who Nile is or what she can do, her life is over.
But when disaster threatens the ship, Nile may have no choice but to unleash the truth that will curse her future.
AIR AND ASH is the thrilling first installment of the TIDES series. Recommended for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Tamora Pierce, and Naomi Novik.
Review: This book had an action packed plot that kept me turning each page. Who doesn’t like a good adventure on the high seas?
Nile Ash is a strong heroine who knows the high seas, especially war ships. She not only is a sailor but a princess. I love the chemistry between her and her first officer. The banter between them is cute. The pace is quick and the read enjoyable.
Alex Lidell does a wonderful job at describing her world, especially the detail of each the ships. I felt like I could be a sailor on the ship
Should you read it? Yes! High stakes on the high seas with a strong heroine and a little bit of magic.
