As often with fantasy novels, the end felt a bit rushed and there were a few too many coincidents. No named characters died - even Droust an old prisoner of the Blue Lady survives. It does not break the story, but I can't shake the feeling that the protagonists should not really have won so fully.
I expected a few deaths. The novel leaves open whether the Blue Lady herself and a few of her monsters, such as the squid dies - or maybe that is just my wishful thinking. I can definitely see her getting a write-up for Dungeon at some point. I definitely will use her. In short, a good story in an interesting setting.
Few inconsistencies, with a slightly unlikely happy ending. Jan 16, Forgotten Realms Queen rated it liked it. Has its ups and downs.

We are then introduce Has its ups and downs. We are then introduced to our hero, another monk in search for the same book and therefore ultimately into the path of the Blue Lady. Two small problems however. One of the antagonists is a group in the employ of the Blue Lady, a Shou mercenary group called the Nine Golden Swords.
Their full name is repeated so often it becomes a bit repetitive and dull. It should have been abbreviated or a shorter name chosen to avoid that.
The other thing is that there seem to be some leaps in logic. Characters are constantly wondering what on earth is going on, where they are, then all of a sudden WHAM!!! They figure some things out and the Blue Lady conveniently tells us the rest of her story. Good story aside from those two flaws, ending a bit of a let down.
This powerful creature from the Fey Wild seems to die far to easily. May 20, Doris rated it liked it. Overall a great story but lousy writing. It read like the notes that were made in order to complete a thought line, with no effort to go back and clean up and streamline the writing.
There were places where comments were completely out of place, and other places where characters or beasts are brought in with little or no explanation. I am deliberately not including any specifics.

I did enjoy several of the characters, and felt that the Blue Lady has potential to be a powerful force in the world of Faerun.
It would be good to know more about her, why she came some retrospection on her part? By the end of the story, I really disliked Shang Li and his father, but some of the other characters seemed as if they would be likable if they were given more time to develop. I did think the reasons for going after the books was well presented, along with information about past attempts and why they failed. Justification is always good. Overall as stated before, the story is good, and with cleanup should be excellent. Feb 18, Ryan rated it liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed the nautical and unique underwater settings of this book as well as the sort of Asian martial arts themed fighting.
I really like Mel Odom as well as a writer. The book did seem to end rather abruptly and to my knowledge there is no next book as that was the last in the 'Wilds' series.

Ending was a bit rushed though. Jan 04, Sean rated it liked it. The ending seemed extremely rushed. Actually I think this should have been more than just one book. The characters were interesting, but not enough background to truly understand them. Jan 25, Nick Wilson rated it it was amazing. May 21, Robyn Brown rated it liked it.
