Book Description

Book 3 in the award-winning Scimitar Seas series. Books 1 and 2 both won GOLD in the Foreword Book of the Year Awards.

The sea hath no wrath like a seamage betrayed.

Cynthia Flaxal and Feldrin Brelak desperately pursue the mer who have stolen their son. They seek the floating city of Akrotia, forsaken a thousand years ago, which the mer aspire to restore to enchanted glory with the life of their child. And along the way Cynthia must persuade the powerful young pyromage, Edan, to help, not hinder, their quest.

But while the Seamage of the Shattered Isles is absent, vengeful eyes turn toward Plume Isle. Sam seeks revenge against her for killing the infamous pirate Bloodwind. Parek and his pirates seek to recoup Bloodwind’s horde of treasure. The emperor seeks to bring the upstart seamage to justice for her crimes. And the cannibals seek prisoners… Camilla alone can save her loved ones from this assault, but does she possess the will to make the ultimate sacrifice?

Perils near and far threaten to destroy all that Cynthia has achieved. But little does she suspect that the greatest evil of all lurks deep in the heart of her home.

More About the Author

Chris A. Jackson fell in love with the sea the first time he set eyes on those majestic rolling waves. As a youth, he spent summers working on his father's fishing boat in Oregon. Trained as a marine biologist, he became sidetracked by a career in biomedical research, but regained his heart and soul in 2009 when he and his wife Anne left the dock aboard a 45-foot sailboat to cruise the Caribbean and write full time. His acclaimed Scimitar Seas nautical fantasies won three consecutive Gold Medals in the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards. In addition to his sea tales, his repertoire includes six more award-winning fantasy novels, as well as several short stories published in anthologies. Shooting from the sea to the stars, Chris now has a triad of science fiction/humor novellas available in both ebook and audiobook formats.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Riveting Read 23 July 2012
By Elenora R. Sabin - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is the third volume of the Scimitar Seas tetralogy, following Scimitar Moon and Scimitar Sun (A Scimitar Seas Novel). Readers, fasten your seat belts! From the first page to the last the suspense is unremitting. Scimitar's Heir is a real page-turner, with well-developed characters that the reader cares about and follows with great interest. Chris A. Jackson places his characters in constant danger, and the reader suffers with them as they face that danger and, sometimes, death. The many twists and turns of the plot surprise and shock but never disappoint. I strongly recommend this book and the two preceding volumes in the series to fantasy readers looking for an exciting and original story. Personally, I can't wait to read the fourth and last volume of the series.
5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing read!~ 20 Nov. 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
Nowadays it seems that sequels in a book series aren't always as riveting or enticing as the first book, but Chris A Jackson once again gives us an astounding page-turner of a book full of suspense, adventure, and amazing character development. Returning fans will find good reason to applaud this addition. I love all the plot twists and well-developed characters that can always seem to keep you on your toes. I finished Scimitar Heir before Scimitar War was finished and I just couldn't stand to wait to have to read the next! I highly recommend this entertaining book and the full series (Scimitar Sun, Scimitar Moon, and Scimitar War) to anyone who wants to read a refreshing fantasy adventure. Check it out, you won't regret it!

Wow! I struggled through the second book and almost decided to skip out on this one. I am so glad I didn't! I was literally on the edge of my seat and could hardly put it down. Simply excellent stuff.
