When the Dragon Ships began to tear through the trade lanes and ravage coastal towns, the hopes of the archipelago turned to the Windspeakers on Tash. The solemn weather-shapers with their eyes of stone can steal the breeze from raiders' sails and save the islands from their wrath. But the Windspeakers' magic has been stolen, and only their young apprentice Shina can bring their power back and save her people.

Tazir has seen more than her share of storms and pirates in her many years as captain, and she's not much interested in getting involved in the affairs of Windspeakers and Dragon Ships. Shina's caught her eye, but that might not be enough to convince the grizzled sailor to risk her ship, her crew, and her neck.

"The Drowning Eyes is a magic- and wind-filled adventure, peopled with excellent and strong characters. The story made me want to sail the coastline on a boat of my own and see if I could call up a storm. In Emily Foster's debut novella, apprentice Windspeaker Shina must return her people's power to them before the Dragon Ships destroy everything...unless Shina destroys it by accident first. So vividly rendered, you'll be tempted to wash the salt-spray from your clothing after reading The Drowning Eyes." ??Fran Wilde, author of Updraft… (mere)

2.5 stars. This may require a reread [listen] at a later date. I did not vibe with this book. Even the amazing Robin Miles's narration couldn't save this book for me. I'm not even sure what was going on to be honest. Everything about the description should have made this book an excellent read. Perhaps it was just me. I will revisit some time in the future and perhaps my thoughts will change. ( )

Well written. An interesting world with a creepy payment for magic use, but I didn't really get the captain's story well enough to follow it. The main story is solid and good, the captain's story is unclear, and so feels like a random tangent that surrounds the main tale. I feel like there's a lot implied, but I'm not entirely sure what.

Novella about the sea, wind mages, power and sacrifice. ( )

I want to read a hundred stories set in this world. I loved pretty much everything about this story, but I want a full-length novel! ( )
