I check to see if Lazette Gifford has a new book out at least once a week! One of my top 5 Smashwords authors!

I am so certain I wrote a review of this wonderful book back when I read it but it isn't here so... Another great Gifford book! I love the planet and the peoples who have adapted to live on a watery world and Marcus who adopted this world so completely that he learned to love the water. This is another story I wouldn't mind expansion on. Okay, I admit it, I love Ms. Gifford's worlds! I don't want them to stop!!

Lazette Gifford has quickly become one of my favorite authors. By picking up one of her books, I know I’ll get a good story. This book is Science Fiction, unlike the previous books I have read by her. The world is water dominated. It was fascinating to read how the species had adapted to the water. The plot was a bit slow at times, but I liked it. The slower pace made it possible to enjoy the world.
The Seaborn and the Isu were suspicious towards Marcus in the beginning, which was logical. They had had bad experiences with the IWC. I loved how they used the rebels ignorance about the world to fight against the rebels. And the characters felt like human beings, with good and bad sides. During the book all of them suffered somehow. They fought to save their culture, to survive.
The end was satisfying, and tied up all the lose threads.
