In a world deep under the sea there is a kingdom that has survived centuries and the modern world doesn't know it exsists. The people who live there are the Seaborn and their history is interesting, intriguing and special.

Kassandra is the granddaughter of the King of the Seaborn and has been banished to the surface. Not letting her grandfather keep her in exile forever she is learning to use her powers. One strong enough she will face the King and take the crown for herself. She is a power to be reckoned with and it is nearly time for her to go against the man who tried to hide that she Seaborn.

When Corina a college student goes for her weekly dive she is sure there is something in the water with her. Then her mind and body is taken over and she can not control anything the Seaborn sorcerer does with her. She has to fight to keep Aleximor from taking revenge on the world after being imprisoned for four hundred years.

A new world is born in this fantasy work of art. The sea has alot on offer in this fresh and unique debut book by Chris Howard. With some darkness, alot of depth and some fantastic characters this is a must read for any fantasy fans who like the sea aspect or who just want to try something a little different. Sometimes a little complicated to follow the author has weaved a tale that needs to be taken in slowly to understand all the delights it holds.

Seaborn was interesting and has left me wanting more. Hopefully there will be more on offer soon because even though I don't like swimming in the sea I certainly like reading about it and the treasures it holds.

This is the second time I’ve seen this book on someone’s blog today. I’ve run across a lot of different kinds of fantasy books of various natures but the sea doesn’t get as much notice today (not like back in the 80’s- early 90’s when mermaids were all the “rage” lol). The book trailers I’ve found are intriguing!

Thank you, Amber! The sequel, Sea Throne, won't be out for a while--Summer 2009, I believe. In the meantime, I do have a short story, "The Gatherer" up on http://www.SaltwaterWitch.com, which tells some of Aleximor's story.

@ Ladytink - I hope you see this as a sign and get yourself a copy of Seaborn soon!

@ Chris - Thank you again for the book! I will treasure it and I look forward to your next book coming out even if it is a bit of a wait...
