Comment from Readers Favourite editor Carol Thompson This is one of the best stories I have read since I’ve been the proofreader and editor for Readers’ Favorite, and that’s over three years. Your writing clearly shows your creativeness and your talent, and you got me with the ending. I didn’t see it coming. It is rare that an author can fool the reader. Usually, the endings are so predictable. The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket is an entertaining story for young readers. Lotty’s adventures continue, I hope.

I loved The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket by Suzanne Lowe. When I read a book for children I’m always thinking of children that I know. I know what they are looking for in a book and I know what their parents and grandparents are looking for in a book. Suzanne Lowe’s book meets all their requirements. The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket will be especially fun for young girls to read because they will identify with the protagonist. Charlotte has had a hard life but is brave, cheerful, positive, and helpful. She strives to do her best, no matter the circumstances, and is sure that things will work out even in her darkest moments. I like her, and I like her story. I’m sure young readers will too

“The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket by Suzanne Lowe is a marvellous adventure story for children of all ages.
Ms. Lowe does a superb job of bring this adventure story to life, with wide array of characters and events that are vividly described. Redface, the cook, puts her to work alongside Jasper, the cabin boy. Suzanne Lowe weaves this adventure tale with enough surprises to keep you on the edge of your seat. The story moves along at a near breakneck pace, and there is no let-up in the action. For a book that really isn't very long, it is by no means short on all of the elements that make this book action packed. I was immediately drawn into the story. The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket was just a joy to read from beginning to end, and tough to put down. I would love to see this entertaining masterpiece on the silver screen someday. The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket by Suzanne Lowe is a page-turner for sure. Brava!”

Five stars! I have been a fan of pirate adventures since I read Treasure Island as a child, so when I saw The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket I jumped on it immediately. As an adult reading this, I can honestly say I enjoyed every bit of it and I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to read so that she can immerse herself in Lotty's amazing story. Suzanne Lowe's pacing of her story is brilliant for this genre; the story is quick, clean, and fun. I liked how much thought and detail was given, even to the minor characters like Red Face and Jasper, but most of all I loved how Lowe connected everything sweetly in the end and left room for more. I believe the author is working on the second novel and, without a doubt, I'll be looking forward to it. I would recommend The Pirate Princess and The Golden Locket to people with elementary school-aged children; it's an altogether wonderful and wholesome story.
