Publisher's Summary

When the Dragon Ships began to tear through the trade lanes and ravage coastal towns, the hopes of the arichipelago turned to the Windspeakers on Tash. The solemn weather-shapers, with their eyes of stone, can steal the breeze from raiders' sails and save the islands from their wrath. But the Windspeakers' magic has been stolen, and only their young apprentice, Shina, can bring their power back and save her people.
Tazir has seen more than her share of storms and pirates in her many years as captain, and she's not much interested in getting involved in the affairs of Windspeakers and Dragon Ships. Shina's caught her eye, but that might not be enough to convince the grizzled sailor to risk her ship, her crew, and her neck.

Critic Reviews

" The Drowning Eyes" is a magic- and wind-filled adventure, peopled with excellent and strong characters. The story made me want to sail the coastline on a boat of my own and see if I could call up a storm.... So vividly rendered, you'll be tempted to wash the salt-spray from your clothing after reading The Drowning Eyes." (Fran Wilde, author of Updraft)

A Little Disappointed

Nothing too special to write home about on this one. I found it really hard to follow and to differentiate the characters in my mind. The book was pretty confusing because the story wasn't explained that well, and the sections that were more understandable were not all that interesting. So, even though the book is short, I couldn't wait for it to end. It's also rife with harsh and coarse language. I think the book tries to implement too many innovative concepts and just can't sustain it all. I don't recommend this to fantasy fans.
