When Ian Mac Roy, third son of the Eiryan king, agrees to escort a foreign ambassador home, he discovers that simple tasks can be the most dangerous. Deception, sabotage, and a brush with a headsman’s ax will not deter Ian from completing his task. The only question is–will he and his charge finish it in one piece?
Deception at Sea is the first novella in a series of sea adventures set in the same world as The Taurin Chronicles.
I first read this story as Amy serialised it on her blog while writing it. The reread of the published version was no less enjoyable. If there’s one thing I love, it is when an author expands on a world they have already written about, and this is what Amy does with Deception at Sea.
Set in the world of The Taurin Chronicles, we meet Ian Mac Roy, an Eiryan prince who has a penchant for the sea. This nautical caper takes the reader to strange lands and provides a glimpse of Connor of Ravenmarked fame. Complete with daggers, beautiful women and dangerous political machinations, one cannot help but keep turning the pages of this remarkable story.
