The People of the Sea by Scott Marcano - a review

Guest Author - Laura Lehman

The People of the Sea have wandered the Great Sea, living on artificial islands for generations. They have spent lifetimes searching for their promised land, the Far Shore. Yearning for a different life, young Tumarak decides to join the crew of a ship bound for conflict. They are sailing to stop a distant tribe from joining an apocalyptic war.

The Mapuche tribe has left the People to come to the aid of the Palia Karnohuoa, a race of sentient sea creatures who are fighting the evil sorcerer Shezula and his minions. Shezula has conquered the Palia Karnahuoa homeland, the very place generations of the People have been searching for. Fearing for Tumarak's life, his love Ursa follows him and becomes a critical force in stopping the sorcerer.

Where most epic fantasy stories take place in a medieval European setting, The People of the Sea was a nice change of pace. The culture and legends of the People lend a distinct atmosphere to the novel. Instead of dragons and knights there are sentient sea creatures and sea captains. The familiar struggle between good and evil is set in an imaginative world full of primal magic, horrible sea monsters and noble sea creatures.

My Recommendation
The People of the Sea is an enchanting fantasy novel as well as a quick read. I enjoyed reading this novel and recommend this book to anyone looking for something out of the ordinary.
