Beware of what the tide may bring…

Ethan Hodges is deeply unsettled when thousands of decomposed starfish inexplicably wash up along the shore of Pelican Bay. As the ominous sea epidemic spreads to other marine life, he continues to see a suspicious-looking man loitering on the beach.

To solve the mystery, Ethan seeks help from longtime friend, Sheriff Dansby, and Reagan Langsley, a beautiful marine biologist from Lighthouse Point. Spurred by curiosity and jealousy, Ethan’s estranged wife, Morgan, joins them in the investigation.

When the elusive outsider is finally arrested, an enigmatic relationship develops between Ethan and the man. With cautious prodding, Ethan learns that the fate of the world appears to rest in the hands of the tall stranger named…Mr. DM.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Pelican Bay was my Favorite Book of 2013, Captain Shelby made my Best Reads of 2014, so I have been waiting impatiently for Revenge of the Sea.

This time we meet Mr. DM and he takes us on one heck of a voyage. He is one evil man. Can Ethan stop the fate he has set for the world?

I do love the way Jesse Giles Christiansen writes. The story just flows with almost melodically. He draws us right in and holds on so tight. But his imagination is scary. The plot is an environmental horror story. What happens when everything in the oceans are literally dying?

As always the characters are rich and deep and well developed. This was a more modern telling and time but I did find myself wishing for a little more Captain Shelby and the old Irish dialect that captivated me in the last book. I was pleased to see Morgan, Ethan, not so estranged wife, play an active role in trying to solve the mystery. They truly do belong together.

This Hemingway inspired author has delivered another suspenseful drama with so much depth. This is not the type of story I usually read but Christiansen has awakened my love of maritime mystery…or maybe it was Captain Shelby.

a perfect escape

About The Author

#1 bestselling author in sea adventures, Jesse Giles Christiansen is an American author whose page-turning fiction weaves the real with the surreal, while also speaking to the human condition. He was hailed by New York Times bestselling author, William R. Forstchen, as “leaving readers so tantalized by the story lines, they think the events actually happened–a demonstration of skill surely to launch this author into the big leagues.”

Jesse was born in Miami, FL, playing on beaches as a boy, the sky bronzing him forever and the sea turning his heart lyrical. After spending a summer in Alaska before graduating from Florida State University with a degree in literature and philosophy, he wrote his first novel, Journey into the Mystic.

He feels he is haunted by Hemingway’s ghost, not just by the poster in his writing studio that stares at him, saying, “What else you got?” but also by having a café called Hemingway’s in the small European city where he writes. Finally, Hemingway became his neighbor on Amazon when his novel, Pelican Bay, outsold Old Man and the Sea.

He currently lives in Lüneburg, Germany, with his wife and their precocious White Siamese cat.

Synopsis

There are places even the sea cannot go…

In coastal Denmark, a young man named Nereus builds a longship and leaves at age eighteen to discover a new, enigmatic land. Faced with unimaginable obstacles, he crosses the North Atlantic, only to be captured by the Skraelings, the Inuit indigenous people who seek revenge on all settlers because of a “Great Red Man” who murdered many of their family members.

Many years later, Nereus is hired by a group of Irish settlers who are fleeing the tyranny of King Henry VIII, and he takes them across the North Atlantic to the Newfound Land. A fierce battle ensues against the sea, the Little Ice Age, and the vicious Skraelings.

When Nereus falls in love with Laura Hodges, fiancée to the group’s leader, William Brockelby, he becomes embroiled in a dangerous love triangle…until the formidable mystery surrounding Captain Nereus H. Shelby is finally revealed.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Ethan Hodges shares Captain Nereus H. Shelby’s stories. He states his “accounts come from both dreams about him and from reality.” The prologue ends with “remember that with the greatest moments throughout history reality has often mirrored dreams. And also remember that all dreams ultimately come from reality.”

I absolutely love the way Jesse Giles Christiansen writes. After reading Pelican Bay I realized how easy it was to just let go and follow the story where it led. He has topped himself with this story. He immerses the reader right into Shelby’s story. He takes us on a mystical journey back in time, to the mysteries of the sea and the mysteries of Captain Shelby. Christiansen’s words paint incredible pictures in my mind.

Once I started the story I couldn’t but it down. I was in awe of the way he makes these characters so real and made me see what people will endure to be free of tyranny and believe that love really has no boundaries. The dialogue, the old language of the Irish immigrants, is captivating and addicting. I found myself mesmerized by its rhythm.

Captain Shelby is a story full of adventure, mystery, intrigue and love. Christiansen states he was inspired by Hemingway. The inspiration has given birth because this narrative is masterful. Hemingway would be very pleased with this author’s work. This is an author to keep our eyes on.
