Review

He was a teen fishing in a secluded spot with two friends when the Linyati entered his village killing those who fought and enslaving the rest. The village is destroyed and Gareth Radnor’s family along with it. Gareth moves to the Capitol City to live with his uncle.
When a bored Gareth pulls a prank on a noble, the lord vows vengeance. For his nephew’s safety, his uncle sends Gareth to go to the sea.

Over time he becomes voted the captain of the Steadfast. He leads his men in battle against the Linyati and wins. He returns home wealthy, but unable to rest on his laurels. He devices a plan to steal the Linyati treasury that requires trekking deep into enemy territory.

Chris Bunch is a wonderful storyteller who writes fantasy that adults will enjoy. The Linyati are a strange, enigmatic race who serves masters that seem more apropos as residents of hell. The innocent Gareth grows quickly into a hardened warrior filled with grief, anger and pain that shapes him into being a fan favorite while steering CORSAIR into a fast-paced, absorbing novel.
