Happy Wednesday, Bookworms!
This week I am waiting on the release of A Swift and Savage Tide by Chloe Neill.
I did enjoy book 1 – it was nearly a 5 star read! But to be honest, despite how highly action-packed the story was there weren’t any real challenges, failures, or setbacks for the main characters. So while I’m looking forward to reading A Swift and Savage Tide – one of my most anticipated 2021 sequels – I do have some minor apprehension.
I love Kit and that she’s a young, female Captain of her own ship in service to an equally strong Queendom in a male dominated world. Kit and Rian are so cute together. The slow burn of their romance is building exquisitely.
A Swift and Savage Tide is set to be released November 30, 2021.
ABOUT: Captain Kit Brightling is Aligned to the magic of the sea, which makes her an invaluable asset to the Saxon Isles and its monarch, Queen Charlotte. The Isles and its allies will need every advantage they can get: Gerard Rousseau, the former Gallic emperor and scourge of the Continent, has escaped his island prison to renew his quest for control of the Continent.
Gerard has no qualms about using dangerous magic to support his ambitions, so Kit and the crew of her ship, the Diana, are the natural choice to find him—and help stop him. Sparks fly when Kit’s path unexpectedly crosses with that of the dashing and handsome Rian Grant, Viscount Queenscliffe, who’s working undercover on the Continent in his own efforts to stop Gerard. But he’s not the only person Kit is surprised to see. An old enemy has arisen, and the power he’ll wield on Gerard’s behalf is beautiful and terrible. Sparks will fly and sails will flutter as Kit and crew are cast onto the seas of adventure to fight for queen and country.
