The Morrigan (Solar Wind 5) – Lyz Russo
“Actually, interesting fact of bygone eras,” said Federi, “in the past, pirates chose their captains democratically.”
Radomir Lascek is in trouble. Of all the forces trying to take the
Solar Wind out of his hands, Federi is still the most benign. The Solar
Wind finds herself on a space trip, at the end of which there may even
be a treasure. Or not. Dana, Empress of New Dome, is leading the
expedition – but she is not exactly an ally. Strange little aliens have
boarded the Solar Wind and are hitching a ride, causing havoc, and in
the background lurks an evil entity that identifies itself as “The
Morrigan”, one of the ancient Gods, demanding blood sacrifice. And
Captain Lascek’s most loyal sailor, Federi, is plotting mutiny…
Will they make it home?
What we say – review by Nikki Mason:
Frequent visitors to the site will know that I’m a huge fan of the
Solar Wind series by Lyz Russo and this latest didn’t disappoint.
Through the madcap sci-fi adventure that takes place on this space
travelling pirate ship, there are glimpses of relationships and passions
that are so complex and intriguing, you’ll be gagging to read more.
It’s perfect for YA readers.
The atmosphere of this latest book is darker and more dangerous than
its predecessors. Like in the Harry Potter books, these young characters
are growing and developing in difficult circumstances that make being
an adolescent all the more baffling. Federi and his young bride are more
often than not at loggerheads, Ronan has alienated his wife and even
The Solar Wind herself is feeling the strain of confusing emotions.
There are times when the plot almost seemed to get in the way of the
curious doings of this ramshackle pirate crew, but I mean it when I say
this is another winner. I can’t wait to be adventuring with Federi
Nikki Mason – thank you so much for the review, and also for being my fan! Sweetest words an author can hope to read!
