about

As soon as Sophie Hansa returned to our world, she is anxious to once again go back to Stormwrack. Unable to discuss the wondrous sights she has seen, and unable to tell anyone what happened to her in her time away, Sophie is in a holding pattern, focused entirely on her eventual chance to return.

With the sudden arrival of Garland Parrish, Sophie is once again gone. This time, she has been called back to Stormwrack in order to spend time with her father, a Duelist-Adjudicator, who is an unrivaled combatant and fearsome negotiator. But is he driven by his commitment to seeing justice prevail, or is he a sociopath? Soon, she discovers something repellent about him that makes her reject him, and everything he is offering.
Adrift again, she discovers that her time spent with her father is not without advantages, however, for Sophie has discovered there is nothing to stop her from setting up a forensic institute in Stormwrack, investigating cases that have been bogged down in the courts, sometimes for years. Her fresh look into a long-standing case between two of the islands turns up new information that could get her, and her friends, pulled into something bold and daring, which changes the entire way she approaches this strange new world. . . .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Review from This is the Story of My(Reading) Life A Daughter of No Nation wastes no time in throwing Sophie(and readers) right back into Stormwrack. For the past six months, ever since Sophie has been back on earth, she has been preparing for this moment as well. It was only a matter of time before she found herself back in Stormwrack. So when Parrish and Verena show up needing her help she's all to willing. A Daughter of No Nation is still a political fantasy. Which is very apparent when everyone seems to be a lawyer getting around the loopholes in the law. But I found A Daughter of No Nation to be more on the family drama side. Sophie is kind of forced to travel with her birth father to his home island where he can claim her as his child; and hopefully they can get to know each other. In exchange he will help to get her birth mother(his (ex-)wife) off on her many charges. Things aren't as easy at the for Sophie though. Getting to know the powerful man her father is leaves Sophie paranoid and distrustful. For me, Sophie was very frustrating for a good portion of the book. She hates her father calling her child, as she's twenty-five, but the irony there is that she spends that amount of time acting like one. I understand that she's not going to be quickly taken with a man she's just met. And also learning that some of the life he's accustomed to and lives is against her morals is going to be hard to overcome. But Sophie's attitude absolutely sucked. Sophie was judgmental and distrustful of him pretty much right away. Than add on her very childish and insensitive behavior and I'm very surprised he kept his contract that long. For the most part her dad was quite sincere and excited to show her his home. Obviously in a place like Stormwrack Sophie is right to have some reservations about him, it's just her behavior was really inexcusable. Besides my frustrations with Sophie, A Daughter of No Nation has some more awesome world expansion. With each island being it's own governing body there all going to be different and have different laws and ways. So this book offered more insight there. Like how regressed this world really is to modern day earth. I also thoroughly enjoyed Sophie and Bram putting their brains towards the discovery of how Stormwrack fits with earth. Is the past? The future? Another dimension? The whole mapping Stormwrack against earth speaks to the geography nerd in me. By far the world building is the strongest element of the books. Although a strong cast of characters is a close second. I still find Parrish mysterious. Verena is a great moody teenager. And Sophie and Bram have a great sibling dynamic. That's really the tip of the iceberg. It's a big world, so plenty of unique characters make appearances. With one more book to go in the Hidden Sea Tales trilogy, I'm impatient to get more of Stormwrack. See how everyone fairs in a world rift with magic, politics, unrest and conspiracies. Or just you know, being antsy for the finale.
