Part of Lionheart

Goddess Tithe

Anne Elisabeth Stengl

The Vengeful Goddess
Demands Her Tithe
When a stowaway is discovered aboard the merchant ship Kulap Kanya, Munny, a cabin boy on his first voyage, knows what must be done. All stowaways are sacrificed to Risafeth, the evil goddess of the sea. Such is her right, and the Kulap Kanya's only hope to return safely home.
Yet, to the horror of his crew, Captain Sunan vows to protect the stowaway, a foreigner in clown's garb. A curse falls upon the ship and all who sail with her, for Risafeth will stop at nothing to claim her tithe.
Will Munny find the courage to trust his captain and to protect the strange clown who has become his friend?
     Lionheart was a great character, fleshed out, with faults a plenty and good intentions to counterbalance those bad habits. In Veiled Rose, we get to see Lionheart's journey all over their world. It was wonderful, however, We didn't get an in depth look at the other culture's because Lionheart is a bit obtuse. Goddess Tithe allows us to see through the eyes of someone else. In this case, Munny, a young man who works on a ship that Lionheart stowed away on.
     Munny was cute, he had his own little back story that we got to fully explore, and he was realistic. The author accurately portrayed what I have learned is average ship life. Nothing about the realism was confusing, and it added to the plot. I would recommend reading Veiled Rose  first because this is about Lionheart's journey during the plot.

In addition, right now on Amazon Heartless is free. All the other novels are $1.99 and Goddess Tithe is 99 cents.
