Descrizione

A thrilling new fantasy series—full of deadly magic, double crosses, and a dangerous quest in a new world—from Sara Raasch, the New York Times bestselling author of the Snow Like Ashes series.

Adeluna is a soldier. Five years ago, she helped the magic-rich island of Grace Loray overthrow its oppressor, Agrid, a country ruled by religion.

But adjusting to postwar life has not been easy. When an Argridian delegate vanishes during peace talks with Grace Loray's new Council, Argrid demands brutal justice—but Lu suspects something dangerous is at work.

Devereux is a pirate. As one of the stream raiders who run rampant on Grace Loray, he scavenges the island's magic plants and sells them on the black market. But after Argrid accuses raiders of the diplomat's abduction, Vex becomes a target. An expert navigator, he agrees to help Lu find the Argridian—but the truth they uncover could be deadlier than any war.

Benat is a heretic. The crown prince of Argrid, he harbors a secret obsession with Grace Loray's forbidden magic. When Ben's father, the king, gives him the shocking task of reversing Argrid's fear of magic, Ben has to decide if one prince can change a devout country—or if he's building his own pyre.

As conspiracies arise, Lu, Vex, and Ben will have to decide who they really are . . . and what they are willing to become for peace.

Sara Raasch has known she was destined for bookish things since the age of five, when her friends had a lemonade stand and she tagged along to sell her hand-drawn picture books too. Not much has changed since then: her friends still cock concerned eyebrows when she attempts to draw things, and her enthusiasm for the written word still drives her to extreme measures. She is the New York Times bestselling author of the Snow Like Ashes series, These Rebel Waves, and These Divided Shores.

    This is a book that has parallel stories running through it: the story of Lu and the story of Ben. When this happens, you know as a reader that somehow these seemingly separate stories must be related but often you aren't sure how. Sometimes an author does a good job of bringing the stories together and other times they are not so successful. But this is one of those success stories; Sara Raasch does a brilliant job of weaving the story lines into one.For me the strongest part of These Rebel Waves were the characters. I am a huge fan of strong character development and Raasch's characters are believable and likeable. Lu is a strong female protagonist. As a girl, her father and mother were rebels fighting for a free world. During the rebellion, despite her young age, Lu was a soldier battling for a worthy cause. Now the rebellion is over, she is a young lady but she hasn't forgotten her training, nor has she been able to get over her guilt for all the killing she did early in her life.Devereux is the perfect foil to Lu. Lighthearted and rebellious, when they are thrown together the reader can't help following their sparring matches with delight.Over in Agrid, Ben is a different character altogether. In love with the captain of his guard, he will one day rule but is continually hiding his true self from his father. He hides his love affair (not because his lover is a man but because he is lower class), his affinity for magic, and his true beliefs. When Ben's father asks him to start using magic in an effort to cure all disease, Ben is faced with the dilemma of choosing between being labelled a heretic and pleasing his father.Both storylines have lots of action and adventure combined with mysteries that are unwoven as the story evolves. The climax of the story is fast paced and satisfying. I finished the book wishing there was more to come (which is always the sign of an excellent read). Highly recommend!

    This book begins a new epic fantasy series. There are three main characters. Benat is the crown prince of Agrid who has become disillusioned about the actions of his father the king. However, there is little that he can do and must keep his discontent secret or face death as a heretic.Adeluna was a child soldier for her home Grace Loray. After the Agridians were defeated, she hoped she could put aside the memories of the things she did and build a new peace for her country. However, the Agridians are just going away. Under the ruse of a peace treaty, they are doing their best to break up the alliances formed during the revolution and conquer the country.Devereaux Bell is a famous raider - one of the groups that want a better piece of the new government being formed by the revolutionaries. Vex doesn't want to play politics. He's just like to find a safe place where he and his crew can live and thrive.I enjoyed the world building here. Grace Loray has magical plants that allow all sorts of things from healing to strength to long distance listening to explosions. Agridia wants to eliminate all magic and purge all magic users in the name of their god. Lu's goal is to keep her country from going to war again. Ben would like to find a magical cure for a disease that is plaguing the country so that he can shift public opinion away from the religious fanaticism his father supports. Lu, Ben and Vex all have good goals but they learn that what they believe is not necessarily what is real. They have to face a number of betrayals and decide who they will be in the world that actually exists. The cliffhanger ending makes me very eager for the next part of this story.

    not as endearing as Snow Like Ashes, but writing style has maintained.
    parental warning for those sensitive to the subject: same sex romance

    I really enjoyed Raasch’s “Snow Like Ashes” series and was excited to see that she was starting a new series. This series was just not for me. I read the first 25% of it and just could not get into the story. I kept finding anything to do rather than read this book, so I finally stopped.The book jumps around a lot right from the beginning. We are introduced to a plethora of characters right away and immersed in a complex world of rebellions and politics. That there describes why I struggled with this book; tons of characters that were hard to distinguish from each other and lots of politics including a rebellion plot (which I never like much).I just couldn’t do this book and ended up setting it aside in frustration. Hopefully others will like this more than I did.Overall this book just was not my thing. I found it irritating and hard to follow from the first chapter and tried to push through, but never was able to get engaged. I decided to set it aside in favor of something (anything) else.

    When a diplomat disappears and war threatens to break out, it is up to a Lu, a soldier, Vex, a pirate, and Benat, a prince to help determine the fate of their countries.
