Nomads of the Sea


Must read 🏆

A twisting, swirling, maelstrom of an epically fantastic fantasy adventure.

Sig, the oldest child of his family, is set to become the leader of his diplomatic clan. He feels under-appreciated, used to spy out dissenters within the Mangaal when the Lyssan's are invited to help them flush out the traitors in their midst.

Idalia has been sent away to the Nisi Archipelago by her mother - the chief medic to the Lyssan queen. She's a scholar and a medic, and immediately makes her worth known to the Mangaal people when she saves the leg of a young boy.

By the time I reached the end of the prologue, I was hooked. I actually snorted out loud at the prologues last line; the wry observation delivered with such dry humour had me thirsting for more. I also found it hard to believe that Zucker is a mere 24 years old and that this is his debut offering. His writing is so slick, so well articulated and crafted that it belies his youth. That he wrote this 900+ page epic offering in just four months during the Covid-19 lockdown is completely mind-boggling and nothing less than a terrific accomplishment.

I would most definitely recommend Nomads of the Sea to any reader who loves an epic fantasy, as well as to anyone who has a love pf the sea, boats, fighting and perhaps, some piracy. Even if you're not a fan of the genre, I would still recommend this brilliant novel; it's beautifully written and Zucker has obviously poured his entire heart and soul into it.

Bravo, Mr Zucker. I can't wait for you to expand on the Fishgut Guard.
