Emerald Sea
by Mead, Richelle

Cutting off her friends so that she can focus on her ambition to earn a better life for her family, Tamsin Wright is stranded in a hostile northern world where she must use her unrelenting determination in order to survive a harsh winter and secure an advantageous marriage, goals that are challenged by conflicting desires. Simultaneous eBook.

Richelle Mead is the author of the international #1 bestselling Vampire Academy series, the Bloodlines series, the Glittering Court series, and the Age of X series. Her love of fantasy and science fiction began at an early age when her father read her Greek mythology and her brothers made her watch Flash Gordon. She went on to study folklore and religion in college, and when not writing, Richelle spends her time drinking lots of coffee, watching reality TV, and shopping for dresses.

Mead concludes her Glittering Court series by changing narrators once more: this time to redheaded Tamsin Wright. Tamsin's secret is that, at 20, she has a four-year-old illegitimate daughter, who is being raised by her family while Tamsin studies the fine art of how to get a wealthy husband. Tamsin is determined to get her daughter back after a successful marriage, but first she must survive a disastrous shipwreck, guiding the other shipwreck victims to their final destination while dealing with her growing attraction to rascally trader Jago Robinson. She's also learning there are other ways to make a living that don't involve a rich husband-ways that engage her talents for organization and leadership. As befits the final volume in the series, loose ends are tied up as we learn the fate of our previous narrators, so this title won't stand alone. In the world of teen historical romance, this series offers a refreshingly feminist viewpoint while preserving the comforting staples of the genre: lavish details of period clothing and character development based on physical appearance.
