Author: Shami Stovall
Publisher: Capital Station Books
Pages: #437
Genre: YA Fantasy

While protecting the newborn griffins on the Isle of Landin, Volke Savan and his adopted sister, Illia, run afoul of the Dread Pirate Calisto, the same cutthroat who carved out Illia’s right eye. As a master manticore arcanist, Calisto’s strength and brutality are unrivaled. When Illia suggests they bring him to justice, Volke wonders if they’ll have what it takes to fight the corsairs on the high seas.

A fast-paced flintlock fantasy for those who enjoy How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell, Unsouled (Cradle Series) by Will Wight, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan.

Praise for the Frith Chronicles!

Perfect for those who enjoy the Codex Alera series, the Homas Wildus series, and the Harry Potter series. Stovall is quickly becoming a name I look for.”
 – Seattle Book Review

An addictive series. Shami Stovall has produced a mesmerizing story of magic, intrigue, and true adventure.”

Absolutely brilliant.”

Now continue the Frith Chronicles with the second book, Dread Pirate Arcanist!

My Review

This book continues with Volke Savan and his adopted sister, Illia. This book really should be read in chronological order. Readers reading this book without having read the first may get lost. Also, the first book is just as good as this book, so it should not be missed.

Volke and Illia are not as afraid and take more of leader roles. My favorite is Illia. It is great to see strong female lead characters in books. Although, it was very nice to see everyone again. I felt like I learned more about the characters in this book.

The world that Ms. Stovall has built for these books are wonderful. I just get "lost" in these books. The battle with Calisto was a good one. To be honest the last third of the book is where a lot of the action and adventure really came together. I will say it again that fans of fantasy will enjoy these books.

Meet the Author

Shami Stovall
Shami Stovall grew up in California’s central valley with a single mother and little brother. Despite no one in her family earning a degree higher than a GED, she put herself through college (earning a BA in History), and then continued on to law school where she obtained her Juris Doctorate.

As a child, Stovall’s favorite novel was Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell. The adventure on a deserted island opened her mind to ideas and realities she had never given thought before—and it was at that moment Stovall realized story telling (specifically fiction) became her passion. Anything that told a story, be it a movie, book, video game or comic, she had to experience. Now, as a professor and author, Stovall wants to add her voice to the myriad of stories in the world and she hopes you enjoy.
