Watching the trailer, we're given glimpses of far off lands, man-killing crabs, and a mysterious, watery hand reaching out from the sea. We're only given a vague sense of the story though, which is reminiscent of the Odyssey, but with a darker and tense mood. What do you think? Does the trailer make you want to read the book?
If you're curious, here's an excerpt from the back cover.
More information can be found at the book's official site.
"A wave of water in the shape of a clawed hand crashes onto the deck of Wavegrazer. The wheel spins violently; the ship lurches and Cloran's men are flung into the sea. As the masts break and the sky goes black, one name flutters across Cloran's lips. 'Adaire...'
"Cloran has spent his life at sea and is set to retire. He hopes to marry his long-suffering fiancée Adaire, but his hopes are dashed when King Bozin sends him on one final journey to the far-flung icy island city of Miotes. This time, however, the Sea is jealous of Cloran, and will never give him up to Adaire freely. Alas, Cloran has no choice, and accepts the mission begrudgingly. 'One final journey,' he tells himself. No matter what happens, it will be his last."
