The Perfect Conclusion

5 out of 5 stars

In a sea of never-ending series and sagas, Jordan Rivet’s Seabound Chronicles had one of the better endings to a series I’ve read in a long time.  The fact that there was an ending is really rare anymore, and I think that Rivet wrote it perfectly.  It was open-ended enough that you could continue the story in your head but gave enough closure to give a person who read all three books that final bit of closure.

Seafled picks up right where Seaswept left off.  We are still following the crew of Esther and the Catalina, except now they are about to set course for something they never thought they would see again (in more than one way).

The entire Seabound Chronicles series reminded me a lot of the movie Waterworld (and don’t get me wrong, I love that movie). The endless search for fuel, dry land, and a safe harbor. I’ve read many post-apocalyptic books that cover many different topics, but this was the first series that covered what you would do if you were already out to see when an apocalyptic event happened.  That fact alone made this series enjoyable.

Seafled had the same fast pacing and enjoyable dialogue as the first two books, and I thought it might be my favorite book in the series.

Overall, Seafled was a wonderful conclusion to this series and Esther’s tales at sea.  I will check out the prequel that should be out on audio this year to see how it all started.

Book Description:

Esther’s seabound world has changed. Her revolutionary energy technology allows ships to sail long distances and has ended the Catalina’s isolation policy. With the changes come new responsibilities for Esther – and new dangers for the people she loves.

After a shocking revelation from a reclusive colony on land, Esther must embark on one final rescue mission. Old enemies surface on the voyage, but Esther won’t anticipate her biggest threat. She might not like the answers she finds on the ravaged coast.

Land is waiting. Can she survive it?

Listen to the epic conclusion to the Seabound Chronicles!
