Top critical review
a good read
on 8 March 2014
The story of Cobiah Marriner and his ragtag band of seawolves is not bad. The story of the Lion's Arch is better: I very much liked the bickering amongst the council of captains and the description of the ships. I also felt that the narration of the conflict between Cobiah Marriner and the Krytan crown was protracted and brings a naive ending with implacable enemies signing peace.
A good read but not a Moorcock or a R R Martin.
