Read full description of the books:In my review of the previous book, Northern Storm, I pointed out the similarities in that book's structure to the first volume, Southern Fire. Kheda's life is disturbed by magic, and he enlists the reluctant help of mages to defeat the threat to his domain and the Archipelago. Western Shore does start out in much the same way - but it quickly departs from that format, leaving Kheda, Risala and Velindre in unknown lands, facing unknown foes and dangerous wildlife, along with magic, dragons, and natural disasters.
That departure mirrors Kheda's mounting doubts over the reliability of the omens he sees in the stars. If he can no longer trust his own interpretations, what can he trust? There's far less of the Aldabreshin islands in this third volume of the series, but the land our heroes travel to is as wildly different to the Archipelago as the Archipelago is to Einarrin. If you thought Australia was dangerous... well, this land, a sort of Oz-analogue, is even more so. And once again, every action Kheda takes has a knock-on effect, setting up plenty to do in the concluding book of the series. Kheda may not be able to read the omens, but it's easy to see trouble coming over the horizon....
