I just loved the introduction of Maha’dun, the Night Walker. Such a colourful and rich character. I also appreciated the tension that he stirred between Tiola and Jesamiah. The climax was particularly gripping with a best-bad choice that had me furiously reading until the end. Just loved how it turned out.
All humanity is there plus some characters who are decidedly not human, yet betray very human fears and hopes. There is death, destruction, secret agents, lost children, devilish opponents, heartbreak, mysterious boxes with a tragic history, and of course the beautiful ship herself. And all this in courtrooms, the Devon countryside, Spain and the high seas.
My wife handed me her Kindle and said I might enjoy this. She didn't get her Kindle back for several days!
Go and buy it and set sail for high adventure!
In the beginning of On The Account, the fifth voyage of this fine three-mast square rig, its swashbuckling Captain, Jesamiah Acorne, finds himself ignobly languishing in a stinking jail, waiting to be hanged (ironically not for piracy). But preferably, he’d like to be rescued through the magic of his white-witch wife, Tiola. Alas, the lady meets up with her own troubles—and their seesaw rides begin; first separately on land while the Sea Witch lies beached, then together on the high seas.
Introducing some of the actions and reactions in a fifth book of a series can be problematic for any writer. An author might be tricked into telling too much of what happened before, eager to fill the new reader in, or ignore continuity and simply shrug, ‘hard cheese; should’ve read my previous books.’ Either way, there is the risk of annoying some readers—unless it is handled by a pro, such as Helen Hollick.
