Goodreads Synopsis:
Huck Jones, the son of the admiral of the Soaker fleet, has a legacy to live up to. Haunted by the distorted memories of his mother's untimely death, he must face his demons and the man who raised him as he strives to take the courageous step forward into manhood. When he's transferred to the worst-performing ship in the fleet, everything he believes is called into question when he meets a lowly brown-skinned bilge rat girl. Huck walks a deadly rope...

Meanwhile, Sadie, destined to be a Rider in the Stormer army, seeks to avenge her brother's death at the hands of the Soakers. Trained hard by her mother, an experienced Rider, Sadie knows strength and determination more than most. Her father, a Man of Wisdom, has shown his cowardice more times than she can count. As her world and family fall apart, she must cast aside her anger and focus on the wisdom she's always brushed off as foolishness.

Amidst everything, a Plague ravages all, discriminating against no one.

When four worlds collide, lines will be drawn, sides will be chosen, victory will be sought. Death will be wrought. The mysteries of the Cure for the deadly Plague will be uncovered. Who will survive? And what will those who do learn about themselves and the ones they love?
My Thoughts:
 If there were any doubts as to who is my favorite Indie Author, there aren't any now! Estes keeps on amazing, from page to page!
Dear Indie Authors of the world, David Estes has raised the bar on SPECTACULAR books! This book is just barely there (such a small distance) of winning my favorite Estes book. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sadie and Huck! Such incredible characters that you can see grow so much from chapter to chapter! Strong Sadie who knows what its takes to be a great warrior and the ever Just Huck who sees things so differently then anyone on the Big Blue. I will admit that when I first started reading I cringed at the thought that there would be something romantic between the two ( because one is very young) but as the pages flew by I was happy to note that that wasn't the case. I was also very happy to see that some characters I had been long awaiting, were present ( no! I won't tell you who it is!) and kicking up a storm as I knew they would be!
Read it and tell me that you were not eating up the story so fast your fingers got tired quick from flipping pages so fast! I dare you! There is something to be said about a book that does this to you. You know it's going to be a great read because only a couple pages in and your already seeing it all in your head! Estes doesn't fail to do this every single time!
So there's this part involving Huck, a character we heard so much about and finally get to meet, and a scrubbing brush! I couldn't stop laughing when I read this scene! One of my top favorite scenes of this book and probably of the series!
I'm pretty sure this is goes without saying but you really MUST MUST MUST read the Country series! They are fantastic!
