FANTASY REVIEW: The Copper Cat 3: The Silver Tide - Jen Williams

Release Date: 25/0//16
Publisher:  Headline


From Jen Williams, author of highly-acclaimed fantasy debut THE COPPER PROMISE and blistering follow-up THE IRON GHOST, comes a brand-new epic fantasy adventure.

Tales of the Black Feather Three and their exploits abound far and wide, and Wydrin of Crosshaven, Lord Aaron Frith and Sir Sebastian have become sell swords in demand. Having foiled powerful mages and evil magic, they now face a challenge unlike any before - in the form of Wydrin's mother.

Devinia the Red, notorious pirate and captain of the Poison Chalice, is intent on finding the fabled treasure hidden within the jungles of the cursed island of Euriale. She needs the skills of her daughter Wydrin and her companions to get there, and our heroes cannot resist the lure of coin and adventure. But no explorer has returned from the heart of the island, and it's not long before the Three find themselves in the clutches of peril. Deep within the island of the gods, there are remnants of forces best left undisturbed...

Follow the reckless heroes of THE COPPER PROMISE and THE IRON GHOST in an epic quest unlike any they have faced before.


The third and final book in Jen’s Copper Cat trilogy and after the set up from the previous two we knew that this one was going to be something epic. The writing is crisp, the characters suffering from their emotional trauma’s from previous adventures and when you get right down to it, it’s the dialogue that sells the book alongside the characters interactions as they try to resolve the past with their current dilema’s.

Its quirky, its high adventure and the pace just doesn’t let up. All round a cracking book and one that I was more than pleased to spend the time with. A magical experience.
