Captain Arama Dzornaea thought she was just supposed to transport Crown Prince Vistaren Doth'Mara to meet his contracted bride. As the king's top privateer, she thinks she can handle anything. What Arama doesn't anticipate is storms out of season, an unruly stormwitch, and a strange witchery echo that puts Arama, her ship the Dawn Star, and everyone aboard smack in the middle of a mystery.

I like sea stories so this was an easy pick. And I've found that I particularly like sea stories with a twist and this one has several. First off the world in which the story takes place is human but otherworldly at the same time. Several characters have mysterious past and magical / special abilities. I'm not a book critic so not my best skill to critique stories and novels, but this is well written and interesting.

Wow! This is such an amazing read. Fast-paced, with a diverse and interesting cast that I immediately connected with, and an intruiging world.

Amara is strong, touch, and competent. She has an air of mystery that made me want to read on about her. Her complicated relationship with Lo has me longing to see them both again, and hoping for a happily ever after between them at some point.

I loved seeing a gay prince, even if he was on his way to an arranged (het) marriage. His commitment to doing what's right for his country is admirable, and he has a good head on his shoulders. I hope to read more of him as he makes decisions that are not only right for his country, but also right for him.

My favourite character is the deaf stormwitch Kinnet. She is such an interesting and complex character and I loved reading her role in the plot. The author gives just enough glimpse into her past to make her as mysterious as Amara and I can't wait to learn more about her!

This story just flew by and it's made me an avid fan of Stephanie Cain. I'm going out to buy book two right now...this series is just too good to pass up!
