Book 1 of the Natan Fleet Show
When the infamous Ha’Natan is assassinated, Vathion, a seemingly normal sixteen year old, is suddenly made admiral of his father’s privateer fleet. Vathion must then fight in a civil war that has been going on for over thirty years while dealing with his upset and distrustful crew, and hide his father’s death. Hopefully without getting himself killed in the process.
I’ll be nabbing “déjà voodoo” as a phrase. Utterly brilliant.
I’m usually one who prefers high fantasy in novel form and my scifi with a visual format but this one got me. By the midpoint, I couldn’t put it down! I had the pleasure of meeting the author at an event we were both vending at, which is quite the story on it’s own. I left with the first three books of this series. This one took me a bit to get into and it does read a bit like an anime at times but with a sixteen year old protagonist, I really didn’t find myself expecting any different and found it rather enjoyable. I’m very excited to see where the story goes with the mysterious of Natan’s death, the war, Vathion’s development as admiral, though someone please keep that child fed, and that little reveal in the last chapter. I also absolutely enjoy the chemistry between Mirith and Vathion and really hope we see a lot more of her. She’s great!
Onto the next book!
