[Novel] Red Seas Under Red Skies (Scott Lynch)

Red Seas Under Red SkiesBeing a second book in the series it lacks the initial wow factor of the original, but it’s still a beautifully written adventure of guile through some of the most exotic lands fantasy genre has to offer. Not to mention this time it’s about pirates!

Positive: Negative:
Fascinating, detailed setting which feels both exotic and familiar enough not to disappear behind the veil of surreality Story, despite all the excitement and twists, feels pretty simplistic in retrospect
Likable, profound characters
Engrossing suspenseful plot makes you constantly question what will happen next
Full of unpredictable twists
Full of well thought-out intricate schemes of guile and trickery
Genuinely funny humor
Pirates!
