Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Chloe Neill brings her trademark wit and wild sense of adventure to this stunning seafaring fantasy starring a dauntless heroine in a world of magic and treachery. Kit Brightling, rescued as a foundling and raised in a home for talented girls, has worked hard to rise through the ranks of the Isles' Crown Command and become one of the few female captains in Queen Charlotte's fleet. Her ship is small, but she's fast--in part because of Kit's magical affinity to the sea. But the waters become perilous when the queen sends Kit on a special mission with a partner she never asked for. Rian Grant, Viscount Queenscliffe, may be a veteran of the Continental war, but Kit doesn't know him or his motives--and she's dealt with one too many members of the Beau Monde. But Kit has her orders, and the queen has commanded they journey to a dangerous pirate quay and rescue a spy who's been gathering intelligence on the exiled emperor of Gallia. Kit can lead her ship and clever crew on her own, but with the fate of queen and country at stake, Kit and Rian must learn to trust each other, or else the Isles will fall...."-- Provided by publisher.

    Taking a break from her Heirs of Chicagoland series (which began with Wild Hunger, 2018), Neill launches a new, magical reimagining of the Napoleonic Wars. Some believe twenty-four year-old Captain Kit Brightling is too young and too female for naval command, but the Queen has faith in her abilities and has assigned Kit and her crew a dangerous covert mission. They are to rescue an agent with intelligence regarding the identity of a traitor working with the exiled Gallic Emperor. Kit can sense the ocean's currents and, by gently tapping into that power, speed her ship to any destination. She has been ordered to share authority with Rian Grant, Viscount Queenscliff, a former soldier who served with the operative but feels he may be more hindrance than help. Kit soon discovers that Grant is much more than a privileged Aristocratic fop. The diverse crew, sea battles, intrigue, treason, class and gender infighting, and the attraction between Kit and Grant will appeal to fans of historical military fantasies like Naomi Novik's Temeraire series. Readers will eagerly anticipate the next exciting adventure. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
