The Navigator’s Touch
The Seafarer Duology, Book 2
By Julia Ember
After invaders destroyed her village, murdered her family, and took her prisoner, shield-maiden Ragna is hungry for revenge.
A trained warrior, she is ready to fight for her home, but with only a mermaid and a crew of disloyal mercenaries to aid her, Ragna knows she needs new allies. Guided by the magical maps on her skin, battling storms and mutiny, Ragna sets sail across the Northern Sea. She petitions the Jarl in Skjordal for aid, but despite Ragnas rank and fighting ability, the Jarl sees only a young girl, too inexperienced to lead, unworthy of help. To prove herself to the Jarl and win her crews respect, Ragna undertakes a dangerous expedition. But when forced to decide between her own freedom and the fate of her crew, what will she sacrifice to save whats left of her home? Inspired by Norse mythology and J.M. Barries Peter Pan, this companion novel to The Seafarers Kiss is a tale of vengeance, valor, honor, and redemption.
