#BookReview for Whisper of the Tide (Song of the Current #2) by Sarah Tolcser


Synopsis: The second in the immersive series set along the waterways of a fantasy world, perfect for fans of Sabaa Tahir.

Caro has settled into a routine: Wake, eat breakfast, try to figure out who is going attempt to assassinate Markos today. 

The currents aren't exactly calm. Markos is in constant danger, and his claim to the Akhaian throne is largely unsupported. Without military strength he doesn't have a chance. 

Relief appears on the horizon when a powerful Archon wants to side with Markos in his fight for the throne. But in exchange for an army, Markos must marry the Archon’s daughter. They must decide which is more important: their love for each other or the fate of Akhaia. And Caro will have to decide if her destiny is to sail with the tide, or chart her own course.

With shipwrecks, lost treasure, old and new enemies, dark magic, and devastating romance, Sarah Tolcser weaves another epic story about chasing fate.

My Review: In this thrilling sequel to Song of the Current the author does a great job tying up loose ends and making this one a hit out of the park.  I will say that I loved all the beings and the characters but this one was lacking something that would have made it a 5 star read.  I am not sure what it was but it just felt like it was lacking something.  


I did enjoy this one a lot better than book one.  As I was invested in the story for book one but not as much as I had hoped.  If you are looking for a book where women rule then check this one out!
