Just Reviewed Sharon Lee’s “Carousel Tides” at SBR

Folks, if you’re looking for a really good urban fantasy novel to read, look no further than Sharon Lee’s CAROUSEL TIDES.  This is an excellent read that does a number of things, all extremely well — it’s a coming of age story for its heroine, Kate.  It’s a story of female empowerment, again for Kate.  It’s a great quest story (where has Kate’s grandmother gone, and what’s happened to her?).  And it has a very nice, yet understated romance between Kate and the enigmatic, sea-going Borgan.

Oh, yes — there’s a really nasty evil guy to root against, too, a guy named Ramendysis.  This is a guy who’s into destroying as many other people with magical ability as he can, partly because he believes might makes right and partly because he’s just a terrible person.  So the “big bad” is hiss-worthy, too — as if you needed any more reason to read this novel.

I said much more about CAROUSEL TIDES in my review over at Shiny Book Review (SBR).  So please, read my review, then go grab the book!  (You’ll be very happy you did, especially if you love urban fantasy.)
