It's been months again since I posted-mostly due to my mad schedule: I'm teaching sword, comic illustration and stage combat at Different Directions, the NY film Academy and the Pied Piper theatre--and still making my 2K word count each day!
Wake of the Red Mistress by TJ Glenn
Sister Shinara is caring for her group of novitiates when their ship the Courage is attacked and boarded by the crew of the pirate ship Red Mistress. With part of the Courage’s crew killed, Shinara realizes the chances of her little band coming through the experience unharmed isn’t very good, so she makes a bargain with the pirate’s female leader, Aurzia: spare them and she’ll take her to more treasure than she’s ever seen—the treasure of the Ardula Monastery.
…: A little different from Mr. Glenn’s usual offering in that this one features a bit of graphic sex and a lesbian villainess, Wake of the Red Mistress is nevertheless still full of the usual excitement and adventure we expect from one of his tales, There’s magic and shape-shifting and some twists..but the tale’s as filled with derring-do as most of his stories, and there’s a truly ironic reward awaiting the would-be pillagers of the Monastery. Indeed, the blurb from the book cover—a fantasy tale of thwarted love and piratical lust, blood, and treasure—says it all.
Read Wake of the Red Mistress, and sail into the sunset with this adventure.
4 out of 5 stars!!!
