Book:Sea of the Dead

Sea of the Dead

Julia Durango

As the son of the Warrior Prince, Kehl has always known certain things about the world. First and foremost is the certainty that the Teshic Empire is its center, and that everything—and everyone—beyond the empire’s borders has been created ultimately to be brought under Teshic dominion. Furthermore, because Kehl is being trained to follow in his father’s warrior footsteps, he is all too aware of the expectations placed upon him to never show weakness or fear, to instead show an unwavering loyalty to the Teshic Empire and its often severe beliefs and demands.

But when Kehl is abducted by a seafaring band of rebels and taken beyond the borders to the enigmatic Sea of the Dead, a whole new world begins to open up before him. A new world filled with challenging beliefs and dangerous ideas. A world where Kehl’s future—as well as his past—may be linked to the renegade crew of a ship named Carillon’s Revenge and the Fallen King who captains her.
