Review - Shipwreck Island by Struan Murray

 Review - Shipwreck Island by Struan Murray


Orphans Ellie and Seth have crossed an endless ocean in search of freedom and peace.

Arriving on the shores of a colourful tropical island ruled by a mysterious queen, it seems they might just have found the perfect new home.

But there is trouble brewing in paradise and soon Ellie and Seth find themselves caught up in a dangerous struggle for power - and forced to confront terrible truths from their past . . .



What a fantastic story! Gods and monsters, friendships and temptations, power and propaganda, all dealt with so well in a completely thrilling tale.
I loved this continuation of the story started in Orphans of the Tide, and the way it went in a very new direction. Seeing how the gods and their vessels are treated on a different island was fascinating and the complex character of the Queen was quite brilliant.
