Tuesday Book Review on Wednesday


Five-star review of Tides of Acerba: Paradisi Chronicles (Caelestis Series Book 4)

 by M. Louisa Locke

 I’ve enjoyed Locke’s Victorian San Francisco books but this series is my favorite of hers. I haven’t read any of the other Paradisi novels by other authors, but the world-building aspects of these stories is inspiring for me as a science fantasy writer. In this one, Mei Lin Yu must contend with her great grandmother’s illness, the resistance to her as heir to Hen Nain as a member of the MynyEnergy Board and world-wide acceptance by the Ddaerans to her as the future Promise Keeper, her mother’s continued sniping and the machinations of other high-ranking Yus and Quinns. Along the way, she makes new allies and new enemies. Her agreement to find out why Ddaerens don’t wish to leave their seaside village in Vida, the territory controlled by the Quinns, leads to her uncovering a conspiracy. Added to what she must deal with is her relationship with Jaxon, who’s been keeping things from her. Enough loose ends promise an additional book in the series.
