7. The Fox by Sherwood Smith

            This is the sequel to Inda and is an upper YA-level book for violence and sexual themes.  We greet Inda (Indevan Algara-Vayir of Choraed Elgaer) where the last book leaves off, in the hands of pirates.  In this installment of the series, Inda is torn by decisions of loyalty.  Inda has not been back to Iasca Leror since he was first set to sea, but he is torn when the Venn approach and endanger the whole southern continent, using pirates to tear commerce and trade to shreds. Meanwhile, plots at home are decimating the royal family who is trying to weather through knowing worse is on the way.  Inda must choose between pirates, mates, family, and country.  In the end, we are left with most of these choices unrevealed with a glimmer of hope shining through.  Sherwood Smith continues with excellent themes of seafaring, politics, loyalty, love, and warfare through a complex alternate world.
