Okay, so if you are a Pirates of the Carribean fan, read this book! Even if pirate stuff really isnt your thing, read this book! I loved it! The adventure was never ending, the characters captured my every intrest, and when I was done, I wanted more! There was romance, fighting, thrills, and all sorts of other things! Although the ending didn't turn out how I wanted, I understood that sometimes it's easy to wonder what happen than let the author tell you! This book also teaches you a lot about that time in history. It was beyond interesting, and the way it was written was wonderful. I hope this author writes more because the story was unforgettable and I want more! I recommend this to anyone who needs a good read with adventure and surprises around every corner!

Poor research (ex. cockatoos are not native to the americas to be darting through the trees) and basic grammer and spelling errors hold this fun and lighthearted novel down. Even still it is an enjoyable read that is perfect when you want a novel to just pass the time (plane/car trips ect.)

Good plot but there are a lot of errors that should have been edited.

This is one of the few YA novels I found that I can teach without worry. Great themes, characters, plot, etc. Safe in terms of topic- no sex, language, drugs, incest, family death,- not your typical YA. My students love it- female pirates- what more could you ask for?!

Poor writing leads to lackluster action in this pirate tale. The plot has a lot of potential, but the writer uses a rather flat, passive voice in narrating it. Most of the action and romance scenes are told in a vague, offhand, emotionless way. For instance, after Nancy, the main character, becomes a pirate, we are not given much of an action scene. Just, 'We leaped the gap between the ships together, ready to fight and die for each other, but the fight was soon over. We had barely engaged, when the company surrendered to a man.' That's the big action scene. Much of the novel is written that way. When Nancy finally meets up with her lost love, the scene if flat and devoid of emotion. I found this pirate tale to be long, drawn out, and emotionally flat. The author needs to learn to write with an active voice, rather than a passive one.

The first time I read this book I was 13. I am now 22 and still in love with it. Anytime I watch a pirate movie I am instantly drawn back to this novel. I highly suggest you read it.

While I greatly enjoyed the plot, the grammar is this story is terrible. Wwords are constantly misspelled....i.e. fie = he in the book. Letters and numbers are constantly mixed up. If you can't stand bad grammar, don't even bother here. If you can, the plot is pretty good.
