The sequel to THE RED WOLF CONSPIRACY takes the Chathrand across the terrors of uncharted oceans and deeper into an age-old conspiracy
THE RATS AND THE RULING SEA begins where THE RED WOLF CONSPIRACY ended; Thasha's wedding is hours away. It is a wedding that will both fulfil the promise of a mad god's return and see her murdered. Pazel has thwarted the sorcerer who would bring back the god but both sides now face deadlock. Can Thasha be saved? Can the war between two Empires be stopped?
THE RATS AND THE RULING SEA is, once again, focused on the giant ancient ship The Chathrand, but now she must brave the terrors of the uncharted seas; the massive storms and the ship swallowing whirlpools and explore lands forgotten by the Northern world, all the time invloved in a vicious running battle with a ship nearly her match.
Robert Redick's new novel takes the reader further into the labyrinthine plots and betrayals that have underscored the trilogy from the beginning. We learn more about the Ixchel as they fight for survival against the Chathrand's rats, discover more about the true motives of conspirators, live with Thasha and Pazel as they face death and deceit and the Chathrand sails into the infamous Ruling Sea.
Robert Redick's sequel to the acclaimed THE RED WOLF CONSPIRACY is a masterpiece of plotting and adventure. As each page turns the reader shares with the characters the dawning realisation that nothing is at it seems.
Robert Redick is a teacher, the editor of the Spanish and French websites of Oxfam America, and a writer of high fantasy, literary fiction, none fiction and criticism. He is currently hard at work on his trilogy, The Chathrand Voyage.
