Book Review: The Voyage of the Lanternfish

Voyage of the Lanternfish (The Lanternfish #1)Voyage of the Lanternfish by C.S. Boyack
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An entertaining book with serious (not too serious) characters–including normal folks, root? monsters, strange sea creatures and more. Took longer to read than I expected only due to interruptions that took me away from breezing right through.

Surprising details about weapons–some I’d never heard of. The same goes for parts of a sailing ship–more than I ever wanted or expected to know. But the main thing is that the storyline stayed on course even as the ship and its crew ran into one hassle–or battle, after another.

An enjoyable escape to a different time and places–some clearly based on some real geography but the names are changed somewhat. C.S. Boyack has great sense of humor as he tells his stories.

  1. Nice review John. Craig’s books should be right up your reading alley. As you know, I’m not much of a sci-fi reader, but I did read Craig’s The Hat and thoroughly enjoyed it. 😉

    1. Thanks, DG. BTW: Applebaum review up on Goodreads but won’t be here–doing an extended analysis on in September in the Annual.
