TRADERS OF THE SOUTH SEAS
Book 1 of 3: Traders of the Seas Trilogy2021 ISBN: 978-1-7333199-4-2 charispublishing.com Charis Publishing 297 pages This is quite the adventure that James Farris sends us on with this read. ‘Traders of the South Seas’ is the beginning of an adventure series that the reader will think of the past pirate stories that they have read, but will be in for a surprise. The reader will find themselves entrenched in a modern day yet could be a futurist pirate story. The main character of Christoph Swift learns a lot about his family and friends and what they need to make themselves known to all. James has written a story that is visual to the reader that will be able to see what the characters are doing from learning the basics to the various trials we must all face and learn to accept right and wrong and to make appropriate choices.
Reading this first in a series of books the readers will be able to see what being a ‘special’ person will be able to accomplish and reach various goals that one has to gain to understand why we do what we do.
The cover art of the book puts you in the mindset that this story could be a story of the pirates of old, but as you begin you will see what it is really about and now book two of the series is not far away. This would be a good choice for a social studies/business discussion group.
The story shares similarities with the novel, Shadow and Bone, and is like a mixture of Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, and Hunger games______________________________________________________________________________
Traders of the South Seas is an exciting YA adventure story set in the modern day about a young man from around New Orleans who is forced into a futuristic, sci-fi world located near the South Seas, a world called the Traders Terminal—a ruthless, intricate world centered around the mining and exchange of a coveted, yet scarce, gem: minosium. This gem has an imponderable amount of potential energy and is able to power fascinating weapons, machinery, and more.
In order for the main character to join this secretive society to mine and trade minosium at the Traders Terminal, he must pass and survive the dangerous Series Trials, which is a collection of various unknown tasks that test his intelligence and fighting abilities against other fellow trainees, who all seek to obtain the revered Registered Extractor license. With this license, men and women may trade this sought-after gem at the Traders Terminal for riches and glory.
