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.

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.
