Title: The River of Shadows
Series: The Chathrand Voyage
Author: Robert Redick
Rating: 2 of 5 Stars
The crew of the Chathrand are pretty much captured, lots of things happen, Arunis pretty much wins even while being killed.
You know what? I like the overall story. But I can't stand the palpable despair and hopelessness that permeates every action, every thought of every character.
It seems like they are racing ahead of a tsunami, once step ahead of being completely swept away.
I am not a fan of hopelessness.
