Review by: Stormswift on May 13, 2014 :
Good fantasy novel. Lissa is 14 and dreams of adventures far beyond her parent’s farm. The phrase ”be careful what you wish for” applies in this case since she is caught by a press gang when she tries to prevent them from abducting an obnoxious boy. Her life becomes one of drudgery aboard a ship that sails upon an ocean of dust. She is forced to work in the galley where she befriends young Branda and elicits Alice’s jealousy. Despite frequent beatings and injuries suffered, Lissa’s intelligence and indomitable spirit leads her to many adventures on the high seas.

Enjoyed the read, only downsides were the death of the handsome Mampalo ( Lissa’s crush) and the author never explained exactly what was different about Lissa that allowed her to communicate with the denizens of the ocean of dust.
