Books On Our Radar: Song of the Current
by Sarah Tolcser
Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser has given me so much to look forward to! I just love the concept of a fantasy set on the water and the early reviews are booming! Plus pirates! I am completely on board with all the pirate books…gimme. I love this cover too, it is very magical and it’s very pleasing to me. I am so excited for any book that says fans of Sabaa Tahir will like it, because I F-love Sabaa! It is really looking like 2017 is shaping up to be another strong debut year and I can’t wait. So if you are seeking out magical fantasy look no further that Song of the Current set to release on June 6th!

Caroline Oresteia has always been destined for the river. Her father is a wherryman, as was her grandmother. All Caro needs is for the river god to whisper her name, and her fate is sealed. But at seventeen, Caro may be too late.
So when pirates burn ships and her father is arrested, Caro volunteers to transport a dangerous cargo in exchange for his release. Secretly, Caro hopes that by piloting her own wherry, the river god will finally speak her name.
But when the cargo becomes more than Caro expected, she finds herself caught in a web of politics and lies. With much more than her father’s life at stake, Caro must choose between the future she knows, and the one she never could have imagined.
This immersive fantasy debut set along the waterways of a magical world will entrance fans of Sabaa Tahir and Victoria Aveyard. Sarah Tolcser weaves an epic story of danger and destiny with enchanting world-building and captivating characters.
