The Ruling Sea is, once again, focused on the giant ancient ship Chathrand, but now she must brave the terrors of the uncharted seas---the massive storms and the ship-swallowing whirlpools---and explore lands forgotten by the Northern world, all the time maintaining a vicious running battle with a ship half her size but nearly her match.
A masterpiece of plotting and adventure, Redick's new novel takes the listener further into the labyrinthine plots and betrayals that have underscored the trilogy from the beginning. We learn more about the Ixchel as they fight for survival against the Chathrand's rats, discover more about the true motives of conspirators, live with Thasha and Pazel as they face death and deceit, and watch as the Chathrand sails into the infamous Ruling Sea.

I was a bit worried after the first installment that this trilogy would be another copycat fantasy with limited plot. Happily, I was nicely surprised that this second book surpassed the first, and was a really enjoyable and engrossing listen.
Michael Page gives one of the best readings I have ever heard (right up there with Rob Inglis and Roy Dotrice) and manages to have distinct, recognizable voices for each and every character. I look forward to the finale!

What a let down!
After such a promising first book, this was a very long nothing. If it was meant to instill the interminable tedium of a long sea voyage, it succeeded. The series is becalmed.
Perhaps the conflicts and events that arose from them are in some way necessary to the plot at some point, but it did not feel to me as if they were weighty enough to carry a whole book. In fact, this volume seemed to have no plot; no beginning, no middle, no end. It was just a lot of events and conflicts strung together from one to the next.
I don’t know if I will continue with the series. At least not right now.
