I was given a free copy of this book by the publishing company in exchange for an honest review. That has no effect on my review.
The book is about two different groups of pirates who are trying to get to an island to find treasure. There’s Fish Eye and his crew of two, and Captain Harshley with a crew of about seventy. This sounds like a typical pirate story, until you add in werewolves and some other enemies.
The story is pretty slow moving, but the action really picks up in the last third of the book. It leaves off on a cliffhanger and I wanted to know what happened next. The e-book had the first two chapter of the next book and it seems like that one will be even better.
Even though it’s a slow moving story, the characters are great. The point of view switches between a bunch f different people within both crews, but it’s very well done and I never had to double check to find out who was talking. Fish Eye is a good character because he wants to provide a stable life for his first mate, Wokey the Shrimp, but always seems to have some kind of mishap. It’s kind of amusing really.
I’d recommend this for fans of adventure stories and/or pirates. The book will be released in July of this year (aka next month).
