This a very intricate book, the sequel to World without end, It is fascinating and Sean Russell is an amazing writer. I really found it hard to put down. The story is so well written and has a hidden message. It is one that you are never sure of what the ending will be.A trest for me as with a lot of books I realize how it's going to end, Sean keeps you guessing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Russell's tapestry 19 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Book Two of Moontide and Magic Rise is good for the same reason as its predecessor: fascinating characters, locations, and intrigue. Russell is excellent at weaving an intricate tapestry of storylines, leaving the reader in just enough darkness that he or she will want to read on to solve the mystery. I'm glad to have stumbled upon Sean Russell, as I was beginning to think there were no more writers left, only people very poorly copying very poor ideas from television.

5.0 out of 5 stars POLITICAL INTRIGUE 21 April 2001
By Kris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is full of interesting political intrigue!!!!!! I am 16 years old, and I think politics is boring and stupid, but Sea Without a Shore's old-world-ish politics were fresh, interesting, realistic, and altogether entertaining. The way Russel integrates the old legends of mage lore into the Moontide and Magic Rise series is great because it is very believable, and interesting as you follow the characters, on either side of the Farr court, discovering more and more about the legendary mages. Tristam's part in the book is being the modest hero, whom everything seems to happen to because he is special, no doubt. Russel accomplishes much with the long dialogue of the characters and their subtle movements. Never a dull moment, enough intelligent conversations intertwine with exciting action. In this book, the Swallow finally reaches Varia, a seeming tropical paradise that provides ample culture, tradition, natives, and mysterious places for much adventure into the unknown. The Dutchess is always a source of mystery, her strong yet vulnerable character revealed yet never fully understood. The characters made this book, as does the great ending that involves most of the main characters. A must-read! I can't wait to read their predecessors, the river into darkness series!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series 8 Feb 2014
By Dash O. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed these novels, lots of intrigue, mystery, sailing, science, and some romance. Not much violence, or warfare, or even that much magic, so it might be slow for some fantasy fans. However, if you like the sound of well-developed characters, a wide-ranging plot, beautifully descriptive language, and a unique setting, you're going to love this series. I wish there were more than 2 books...
5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Conclution to Moddtide Magic Rise 28 July 2013

Sea without a Shore was a great end to a good series by Sean Russell. My only complant is it had to end. I love how the author reveales the mysteries of the story and resolves everything in a way that is satisfying for the reader and leaves you wishing for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, wonderful book (and series) 4 Mar 1998
By John O'Keefe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As with all his other books, Russell takes the reader through a rich landscape filled with interesting and fully developed characters. The "scent" of magic continues through book 2 and keeps the reader hungry for the next page.
My only gripe is that I'm still waiting for book 3. If you're a compulsive reader, I'd suggest you either wait until all the books are out or buy them now, so they don't go out of print, and stockpile them.
Russell's books capture my interest in a way that, previously, had only been captured by Guy Gavriel Kay's books.
