After a lifetime of training, seventeen-year-old Princess Nile Greysik, a lieutenant on the prestigious Ashing navy flagship, sails into battle with one vital mission—and fails.
Barred from the sea and facing a political marriage, Nile masquerades as a common sailor on the first ship she can find. With a cowardly captain, incompetent crew, and a cruel, too-handsome first officer intent on making her life a living hell, Nile must hide her identity while trying to turn the sorry frigate battle worthy. Worse, a terrifying and forbidden magic now tingles in Nile’s blood. If anyone catches wind of who Nile is or what she can do, her life is over.
But when disaster threatens the ship, Nile may have no choice but to unleash the truth that will curse her future.
Last night I decided to read Air and Ash by Alex Lidell, when I say I decided I was told to (peer pressure much Sarah K L Wilson?!), I’ve had this on my to read list for a few weeks now and am so glad I decided to start it last night.
The book starts in the middle of a battle which drew me right into it, the more I read the less likely I was going to be able to put it down, in fact I ended up reading it through the night, worth it tho!
The book follows Princess Nile Greysik of Ashing (Nile Ash) as she sails the seas and finds her true self.
With characters you fall in love with and others you want to make walk the plank, this book is a true gem. It’s not a style I’d normally read but I’m so glad I did, tonight I’ll be reading the novella – First Commander (see it in a forth coming post!)
