This fantasy adventure novel, a companion to The Glass-Maker's Daughter, takes place mostly at sea. It's got a great mix of magic, action, romance, heart, and characters you care about. Nic, a lowly servant boy, is beset by a curse that causes all of his masters to meet untimely demises; he's smart and humble, and you care about his fate right away (probably because the book starts with his ship being invaded by pirates). Did I mention this book has pirates? And a cursed ship? And a deserted island? And a theater troupe of crazy actors? And costumes? Seriously, this series is one of those published-only-in-paperback ones that get overlooked, but I love them. ( )

Nic has been a bond-servant since he was born. His masters tend to die quickly of freak accidents; apparently he is cursed. When his latest, and best, master takes their acting troop on tour, their ship is attacked by pirates. Nic must summon unexpected abilities to save his life and his city. ( )
