The sequel to Song of the Current opens with Caro, now captain of her own ship, and Markos, rightful ruler of Akhaia, in a committed relationship. They continue to strategize how Markos can gain control of his country. The only option appears to be a marriage alliance in exchange for an army. Caro sacrifices her happiness by ending things with Markos freeing him to marry for political gain. To make matters worse, Markos sends Caro to fetch his future bride. The plot starts twisting from there and Caro is thrust into desperate adventures with her survival dependent upon an old adversary. The sequel is every bit as fabulous as the first, perhaps better. Caro is such an engaging heroine and her adventures are a thrill. I look forward to reading everything this author publishes. Highly recommend.
