In The Astreya Trilogy, Book 2: The Men of the Sea, Astreya learns from his grandfather Oron how to control his power over the shipstones aboard the great ship Cygnus. He still yearns for Lindey, left on shore against her will.

Trying to purge a nagging guilt, Roaring Jack sails the Mollie south again, and this time Astreya’s friend Cam is a stowaway.

Astreya’s cousin Adramin tries to make Astreya fail. At The City of the Sea, the lawful meeting place of the great ships, family politics turn violent, with tragic consequences. Astreya must hurry to protect Lindey from his marauding uncle Mufrid, who wants the stone Gar gave her.

A day-and-night sailing duel, a battle at sea, a shipwreck, a fight in a pub, escapes by sea and secret passage, help from unexpected allies and treachery from family all take their toll on Astreya and his friends.

Astreya and Lindey will face even more dangers and deceptions in the last book in The Astreya Trilogy, Book 3: The Wanderer's Curse.
