Book Description

Dec 1 2011
In Book I: The Voyage South, Astreya leaves home, hungry for information about his father's mysterious origins. The crew of the Mollie abandons him in a strange land where only his new friends, Gar and Lindey, help him survive. Pursued by academics and thugs, Astreya flees with Lindey to Charton, only to find himself in the clutches of Adramin, his cousin, who is one of the Men of the Sea Astreya had wanted to know more about. In Book II: The Men of the Sea, Astreya learns from his grandfather Oron how to control his power over the shipstones aboard the great ship Cygnus. He still yearns for Lindey, left on shore against her will. Trying to purge a nagging guilt, Roaring Jack sails the Mollie south again, and this time Astreya's friend Cam is a stowaway. Adramin does everything he can to make Astreya fail. At The City of the Sea, the lawful meeting place of the great ships, family politics turn violent, with tragic consequences. Astreya must hurry to protect Lindey from his marauding uncle Mufrid, who wants the stone Gar gave her. A day-and-night sailing duel, a battle at sea, a shipwreck, a fight in a pub, escapes by sea and secret passage, help from unexpected allies and treachery from family all take their toll on Astreya and his friends. Astreya and Lindey face even more dangers and deceptions before the final conflict in Book III of The Astreya Trilogy: The Wanderer's Curse. "Hamilton has an intuitive grasp of story... Astreya is a work of great power, insight, and ferocious imagination... I recommend it unreservedly." - Spider Robinson, Nebula and Three-time Hugo Award Winner, Recipient of the Heinlein Lifetime Achievement Award "The books feature a pirate, knife fights and much more as factions within the ruling family of the Men of the Sea struggle for supremacy... Hamilton has produced a set of well-rounded characters whom you can empathize with and they are pacey novels which are hard to put down." - David Hayes, HistoricNavalFiction.com

5.0 out of 5 stars It keeps getting better Dec 28 2011
By Spider Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Everything I said about Volume I of this splendid trilogy applies with equal force (or more!) to Mr. Hamilton's splendid second volume. Like THE GODFATHER PART II, it is one of those rare sequels that are even better than part 1. He has the enviable knack of making what he does--making you truly care about entirely imaginary people, using only ink-stains on paper or pixels on a blank screen--seem easy. Please believe me when I tell you it is the hardest thing in the world to do.

But you don't even need to know that. It's just the part that fascinates me, because I've been struggling for 35 years to attain the ease that Mr. Hamilton had first crack out of the box, and is never going to lose. All YOU probably need to know is that he will make you feel better about being alive, more able to deal with your own cares and worries the way Astreya does.

Now if you'll excuse me, I want to go back to trying to reverse-engineer Mr. Hamilton's accomplishments....
