Book started slow. I actually put it aside the first time. Glad I gave it another chance. Looking forward to the sequel. ( )

Title: The Red Wolf Conspiracy Series: The Chathrand Voyage Author: Robert Redick Rating: of 5 Battle Axes Genre: SFF Pages: 466 Format: Kindle Synopsis: The greatest ship still in existence, The Chathrand, is making a historic voyage. It is carrying an Ambassador's Daughter who will be wed to a Prince, hence signalling the beginning of a long peace between two Mighty Empires. But Empires are rife with corruption and full of the corruptable. This is not a voyage of Peace, for both Empires are planning treachery. This is not a voyage of Peace, for others are planning to use it to bring back some of the mightiest and evilest power ever known to Man. My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this. That was a surprise because I had thought this was going to be about anthropomorphized cats [Chathrand just sounds Cat'y to me and when you've read as much SFF as I have, sometimes words have a "ring" to them that lead you to believe something about them] and it was very evident from the start that that was not the case. So my expectations were dashed from page 1. This was an adventure story filled with magic, Awakened animals, the Littles and derring-do. It was great. However, I found that not a single main character was good enough for me to want to care about. If any of them had died and the plot had proceeded, I would have been just fine with that. It wasn't that they were horrible people, not by any means but they never caught me by the nethers and held on. You know how sometimes you just connect with some people? And then there are the times that you don't? I've had times where everything seemed perfect with somebody else but that spark wasn't there and things just kind of wound down. That's how it was with these main characters. To be honest though, I don't expect to connect to characters in every book I read. It is nice when it happens, but I do have my Man Card to think about and sometimes some good old fashioned violence and action are much more necessary. Such was this book. I am looking forward to reading this completed [HURRAY!] series. " ( )

A grand ship departs from a harbor in the Empire of Arqual. 600 years ago this ship was built and named the Chathrand. For a very long time this was a magnificent ship of war, a floating outpost of the empire, but now its goal appears to be peace. The ship is to make sail for Mzithrin, an enemy empire, to deliver a young noblewoman so that she can marry a Mzithrini Prince and so bring peace to both empires.
But, is everything what it appears to be? Or is the last mission of the Chathrand not meant to bring peace, but war instead?

It began, as every disaster in his life began, with a calm. The harbor and the village slept. The wind that had roared all the night lay quelled by the headland. The Bosum grew too sleepy to shout.

Pazel, a tarboy on a ship known as the Eniel, has a secret nobody knows. More than five years ago, when all was well and his homeland was not destroyed by the Arquali, his mother bestowed a gift upon him. As a result he can now understand, and speak, every language spoken to him or about him, without having to learn it. However this gift can be a curse as well, because after some days of enjoying the gift, he will get a seizure. This seizure will ensure that nobody can understand him, and that he can't understand a single word spoken to him. When found out, it will mean certain death for Pazal. But somehow, fate brings him to the Chathrand.
While Pazel finds his way to the great ship, another person finds her fate changed.
Thasha, daughter of Admiral Isiq, wishes to leave the school she sees as a prison. She hates the women who teach her, hates everything around her, and most of all detests the woman who, in Thasha's opinion, is to blame for her situation. Her father's consort, Syrarys, has her father's hart in her hands but Thasha is sure that she is planning something.
When suddenly she is called back by her father, she thought of herself as the most lucky to escape her prison... Only to arrive at her elderly home to be informed that she is to marry a Mzitrini Prince.
Admiral Isiq, his consort and Thasha will not sail with an ordinary ship, but with the Chathrand.

While Thasha desperately wants to flee from her marriage, Pazel tries to stay alive, only to find out that everything is not the way it seems. Peace seems not to be the goal for this last voyage of the ship, but war again. For the ship bring with it a dangerous dark power, one that seeks the ultimate source to become the king of kings, the ruler of all the world.
And then it even looks like the dead, are not really as dead as everyone thought.
It all comes together, in The Red Wolf Conspiracy.

On that first occasion his gift lasted three days- and ended as it always would, in a mind-fit.
This was pure horror. Cold talons seized his head, the odor of custard apples filled his mouth and nostrils, and the purr rose to an ugly, hysterical sqauwking. Pazel shouted for his mother. But what came from his mouth was nonsense, a baby's blather, noise.

I liked this book.
There was a lot of detail in it and I liked the way Redick brought the whole life-on-a-ship-thing it was very well written and made it imaginable to even me. Also a plus is the way he created this world including history, animals, superstitions, religions and so on. He created this all included view of this world in which there is war between empires. There's even a thing called The imperial boys registry, when a boy not from Arqual origin goes there he can buy his citizenship.
Though at some points there are gaps in the time line, which are later filled when you'll hear it spoken off between characters, I didn't find this irritating.
What I didn't like so much was that in the last quarter of the book, everything seemed to go too fast. Let me explain:
Throughout the whole, everything builds up slowly. You'll get to know about Pazel and his story, Thasha and hers, the conspiracy... and then in the end everything is somewhat forced to go faster, or so it seemed to me. A lot suddenly fell together too quickly. And because of that I would have liked a different ending. Not that I don't want the read the sequel, I almost always want to read the sequel, but that was not because of a great cliffhanger or anything, that was more because of the little sneak peak in the back of my edition.

First book in fantasy series. Good but not my favorite ( )
  mgriel | Jan 18, 2016 |
I'm always a fan of jumping into a series that already has two books out...that way I'm not waiting to read the next installment. That is until I get caught up and am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next one..... this is one of those series.

Its a story we can all get behind... unlikely heroes being thrown together to not just save themselves but the world in which they live. Though political intrigue usually puts me off, Mr. Redick has the right amount mixed with adventure and a touch of magic as a cherry on top. I found myself not wanting to put it down because I wanted to see how young Pazel was going to save himself, find his family and fall in love with...of course... the princess.

The twists and turns made sense and kept me on my toes. By the end of the book I was left wanting more and yet the first book ended where it should. It gave you just enough closure and left you wanting more.

Pazel is a great hero and Thasha is a great heroine. If you remember anything about growing up you should feel a connection to each and understand their situations. As more of the main characters are introduced, Mr. Redick gives you enough pieces of each to understand their motives and their actions.

You don't have to be a seafarer to understand this story. Simply love a good story of grand adventures. ( )

The book jacket description makes comparisons to China Mièville and Phillip Pullman, but that's a bit of marketing hype, I think. Those two bend the fantasy conventions to make social or political points in ways that are more, if you'll excuse the expression, literary. While Redick may seem to employ some literary allusions -- is the book that writes itself a nod to Borges, or just yet another cool fantastical concept to pile on? -- for the most part, he is telling a good yarn (no easy trick, either), frequently with some nice imagery.
