Cloran is the famous captain of the Wavegrazer. He and his crew return home after nine months at sea with nothing but rest and relaxation on their minds. Cloran is deeply considering retirement so he can marry his love, Adaire, who has waited so long. But just as they arrive home the King sends Cloran and his crew out again. Cloran promises himself it will be his last journey, but the sea is a jealous mistress and full of many mystical things.
Overall it is a good story. Worth reading if you're lacking material. However it is very slow and dragging. It took me more than half the book to really get into it. To want to turn the page. The rising action was basically me asking, "Are we there yet?" every time the boat stopped. The ending however, was very well done. I am not an emotional person with books or movies, but the last couple of chapters made my eyes a bit more watery than usual. The ending is worth it If you have nothing else to read, however if you do have something else to read, read the something else first.
