"The Sea Thy Mistress" Elizabeth Bear

The Sea Thy Mistress is the third book in Elizabeth Bear's The Edda of Burdens series, following on from the end of both of the preceding books (All the Windwracked Stars and By the Mountain Bound). It's pretty much impossible to talk about this book without some spoilers for the other two, so be warned there are spoilers ahead even for this one.

Both the previous books are stories about the end of the world, whether it be by a bang (BtMB) or a long drawn out whimper (AtWS). The Sea Thy Mistress is about a new beginning, and the tension comes from the vulnerability of the newborn world. At the end of All the Windwracked Stars Muire willing took up the role of Bearer of Burdens and brought life back to the world. But the Lady Heythe has ridden out of the first ending of the world into this new beginning. The world changed while she wasn't there but she only aims to finish the job she started in By the Mountain Bound.
