This was a really good book. I wish the relationships between all of the characters were built for the reader as much as they were described. But overall loved the plot line and the fact they were pirates. Pirates are great.

If you're looking for a summer read than I recommend this book. Adventure on land and sea with a cliffhanger to boot. For about 350 pages you will understand and live the life of a pirate as well as certain rules that should never be broken. Also this has found family and friendship built on trust, but there are secrets. The world in this book was beautiful and dangerous, the plot ever expansive with a lot of adventure with some down time, and a diverse cast of characters. I didn't want this story to end, but I always have the sequel to read. I don't know if it's just me, but every time I was reading this book I had the Pirates of the Caribbean theme music going on in my head.

I really enjoyed this book and I wasn’t so sure I was going to. I haven’t really read any seafarer/pirate-esc type books before and was unsure if it was gonna be my cup of tea but ultimately bought because the cover caught me eye. At first, I struggled through the first couple of chapters but around chapter 5 I was hooked. I legit inhaled this book and finished it in a day, most of it being in one sitting. 

I love Fable and how strong she is. I loved following Her journey, along with the ships crew. West intrigues me though, I like him but also feel unsure
Spoilerespecially with Saints warning.
I also surprisingly liked Saint??? Like idk love/hate relationship there I think. I thought the idea of
Spoilera gem sage was cool and unique but I wish we learned more about that specifically because we didn’t really get much (but maybe in the next book??? I’m hopeful).


SpoilerI also kinda felt like the trip the Lark was too easy and quick. At first I thought it was gonna bring us to a point where we’d get a lot of it in the next book but then is was just a quick couple of chapters. I just feel like for a place that supposedly is really hard to pass though, even with a carved map arm, there would be some struggles especially with a small young crew


The ending left me surprised, definitely didn’t see that coming
Spoilerbut I guess Saint never explicitly said he was dead. I’m intrigued about where this is gonna go and if the crew and Saint will work together maybe??
Idk but I’m excited to read Namesake when my copy gets here in a couple days! Overall, I really enjoyed this book!
