Wow did I love this book! It was so fast paced and fun! While the book starts out in a historical sort of pirate world, there is some magic that comes to light around mid book. It turns out some of the lore pirates have heard is true. It caught me a little off guard because I wasn’t expecting it, but I liked the shift once it was in place.
Alosa is a girl who can definitely take care of herself and isn’t too squeamish to get a little gory now and then. She does what needs to be done and makes strong decisions. She’s also snarky and fun. She got an attitude and a great sense of humor that was so fun. Her father is the pirate king, and she’s looking to continue to prove that she can take over for him one day.
There’s a romance, but I love the way it’s done. It’s a slow unfolding the characters don’t really suspect until its happened. Alosa is a pretty no-nonsense kind of gal. The ending was done in a way that left the book feeling complete, but with plenty of need for a sequel.
This book has pirates. It has deception. It has a smart, spunky, take-charge female lead. What more could a girl ask for? I LOVED this book, and can’t wait for the sequel. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 and would recommend it to any fantasy or pirate fans!
