Originally reviewed at BookwraithsWith Red Tide Marc Turner once again has exceeded all my expectations delivering a complex page turning epic which not only expands on The Chronicles of the Exile universe but adds even wrinkles to it This novel a mesmerizing tale of old and new characters caught in a literal web of intrigue conflict and escalating mystery Not only is this the best book in the series so far but it is currently my pick for best fantasy of 2016Erupting days after the events portrayed in book two this story begins the process of integrating the characters and plots from When the Heavens Fall and Dragon Hunters bringing together new and old characters into the tumultuous aftermath of the havoc wrecked upon the Sabian Sea All of it beginning in the Rubyholt Isles where the Augerans approach the Warlord of the Isles seeking passage for their invasion fleet through Rubyholt waters These island waterways so treacherous with magic and other mundane obstacles that even these fierce conuerors needing aid to bring their forces to bear on Erin Elal and the Sabian LeagueComplicating these negotiations are the Rubyholters themselves; at least some of them This land of a thousand islands populated by backstabbing cutthroat pirates; the Warlords son Galantas being one of the most powerful of the moment and also the individual who sees the Warlord’s plan to aid the Augerans as a sign it is time to replace him – with himself of course And helping stoak the flames of unrest and dissent are agents form Erin Elal lead by Guardian Amerel Duuy; this trusted agent of the Emperor prepared to do anything to anyone in order to complete her missionMeanwhile the Sabian League is still in an uproar after the treachery on Dragon Day New Emira Mazana Creed’s rule shaky at best and propped up by mercenary forces who face off daily with the former emira’s loyal followers Many people waiting breathless for Mazana’s response to the Augerans sabotage From the emira’s pet Guardian Senar Sol to the Chameleon siblings Karmel and Caval to the Spider goddess herself everyone is caught up in the seething political schemes building within the land of the Storm Lords All of it coming to a head when Emperor Avallon Delamar of Erin Elal himself reuest a council to discuss an alliance against the AugeransAnd voluntarily inserting himself into this tinderbox comes Prince Ebon of Galitia as he sails across the Sabian Sea on a personal uest His lover Lamella and his brother Rendale having escaped the horrors of the siege of Majack but not having returned and so he hunts for them across the world determined to locate them and bring them home – if they remain aliveSo much to love here that it really is hard to know where to start But I suppose I will begin with the characters themselves because no matter how wonderful the world building or intricate the plot a story is only as good as its characters And with Red Tide Marc Turner weaves this epic yarn with numerous point of view characters; each of them as different in flavor as the people we pass on the street every day which means there is sure to be one to suit every reader’s tastePersonally I felt myself drawn to two in particular Prince Ebon and Guardian Amerel Good and bad if you will Ebon perfectly portraying the consummate “good guy” who casts himself into dangerous waters to hunt down and find his lady love and his brother This uest causing him constant grief and embroiling him in conflicts which he would rather not be involved in But at heart Ebon is a hero and so he acts like one On the other hand Amerel is one hell of a “bad guy”; this Guardian dubbed by me as the female Jorg Ancrath Jorg being the infamous Prince of Thorns in Mark Lawrence’s The Broken Empire trilogy and she is without a doubt bad to the bone Not only will Amerel take down her enemies without any hesitation but she is coolly ruthless and brutally efficient in her tasks discarding and double crossing anyone and I mean anyone she needs to in order to obtain her desired ends Even those who believe themselves to be experts at the shadowy art of manipulation and intrigue finding themselves her surprise victims And I admit being mesmerized by every appearance of Amerel on the page; her deviousness captivating me as no character has since the aforementioned JorgAs for the rest of the characters their individual plot lines were amazing in their own way Mazana and Senar’s story continuing to grow further complicated by his divided loyalties Karmel and Caval familial conflicts simmering yet failing to find a resolution until it is too late Galantas erupting from the story as a pirate to be feared And the Spider’s return triumphant as she weaves her webs of intrigue with help from a returning character Even a new dark yet humorous character named Hex a pure delight; his behavior in the tale compared by many to Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight Marc Turner’s tendency to have realistic conseuences for all of these people adding an important dimension to every one of their choices and turning every moment with them into a treasure because unlike some fantasy series when your luck runs out in Exile you tend to die which might or might not be a good thing according to your perspectiveEven with outstanding characters the bread and butter of The Chronicles of the Exile is the amazing world building and plot however; the only comparison to Marc Turner’s grand vision and epic scope Malazan by Steven Erikson and Ian Cameron Esslemont Each novel in this series gaining complexity reuiring familiarity with the preceding installments to truly grasp all the pieces Marc Turner is juggling And since Red Tide is book three this story is all about adding layer upon layer to this magnificent edifice slowly building the world even developing the magic of this place revealing its shadowy history and slowly steeping all of these elements together until they thicken and intertwine even transforming into a living breathing place with real people with individual motives approaching one another on a collision course that can only be fully appreciated if you focus all your attention on understanding the brilliant web Marc Turner has woven around themSince this is a book I adore I really do not have any major criticisms to level at Red Tide Honestly in its

DNF at 54% No RatingI didn’t put this book down because it was a bad read I put it down because it was taking me well over two weeks to get to just the 50% mark and I just couldn’t muster the enthusiasm to get into it knowing that it’s meant to be a six book series and there’s not a single peep that the author’s even working on the next book for of a reference all 3 of the released titles came out between May 2015 and September 2016 and it doesn’t look as though he’s shared any updates on his website since So I was finding it difficult to really care what was going on with no continuation in sight If the author announces another book I’ll happily pick this back up where I left off until then For what it’s worth I liked the story the world building the interwoven plot lines and even the characters who are extremely one dimensional It wouldn’t be the first fantasy series I recommend but I wouldn’t discourage anyone from reading it eitherVia The Obsessive Bookseller at wwwNikiHawkescom Other books you might like

Red TideGathering strike in the hope of eliminating the Erin Elalese and Storm Lord high commands They have not counted on the Rubyholters however who come seeking revenge for the destruction of their capital But the battle lines for the struggle are not as clearly drawn as it might at first appe. I liked this so much that I decided to put my name to it No reallyRed Tide is my favourite book of the series to date It’s also the book where I start weaving together the storylines from When the Heavens Fall and Dragon Hunters It features some returning characters from both novels along with two new main characters Amerel and GalantasHere are a few snippets to whet your appetiteThe guard who had punched the assassin shook his hand out The others even the ones who’d played no part in the scuffle were huffing like they’d just wrestled a titanMazana tapped a foot as she surveyed them “Well done sirs—oh well done indeed I thought I’d need a dozen guards to protect me from old women but no you’ve proved six is enough” “Is that the White Lady’s Temple burning” Noon said pointing to a blazing ruin at the edge of the Old TownAmerel nodded “Fair to say the Augerans aren’t believers”“It’s one thing not to follow a goddess another to spit in her eye”“Though if you are going to pick a fight with an immortal the goddess of mercy and reconciliation is the one to choose” “I’m guessing that money went north with the Augerans I’m guessing it’s on board their flagship Who knows if we see where that ship goes down we might be able to send our mages back to recover the loot Twenty thousand talents Split seven ways that makes each of us”—Galantas looked up at the ceiling and muttered some numbers as if he were doing the sums—“a shitload of money”
