Editorial Reviews


"Thrilling action combines with surprising character revelations in this satisfying sequel."
-Kirkus Reviews

"This book worked so well as a duology, so very well. It’s a very sensory book, in that it really hits the senses: the sounds and smells of exotic cities, the crashing of waves and the scent of sea salt, cannons and pistols and new languages, magical or otherwise."
-Jet Black Ink

One of my favorite fantasy books of last year was The Assassin's Curse I fell in love with Ananna and Naji and was absolutely beside myself with excitement when I received the sequel, THE PIRATE'S WISH. I was actually in the middle of another book at the time and dropped it like a hot potato, because I couldn't wait another second to read about my favorite pirate and assassin's continuing adventures.

The sequel picks up right where book one left off. Ananna and Naji are stranded on a dangerous island, and it's beginning to take its toll. They're snappy, on edge, and it seems that the fragile trust and friendship they built in book one is on the verge of a total collapse. Even if they do escape the island (which of course they do - it wouldn't be much of a story if they didn't), the impossible curse that binds their lives together continues to hang over both their heads.

Breaking the curse is the driving force behind the entire book. The first task is completed rather quickly, but the remaining two are not so easily checked off the list. Throw in more assassins, more pirates, a hilarious yet deadly manticore, and the story gets busy, fast. The nice thing is, it doesn't feel busy. Unlike some fantasy novels I have read, the plot doesn't devolve into an epic, complicated mess with too many storylines and characters to keep track of. The world Cassandra Rose Clarke has created is very easy to dive into, and the writing is simply superb, filled with just the right amount of imagery and emotion to capture the hearts of readers. It certainly did mine!

Ananna is a bit more angst-ridden and insecure in this book, and at times I found myself missing the spirited heroine I met in Assassin's Curse.

So The Pirate's Wish picks up exactly where The Assassins Curse left off. Ananna and Naji are still stranded on the Isles of the Sky in hopes of being rescued by Marjani. While still stuck on the island we get to meet an awesome new character the Manticore who Ananna makes a deal with and in a way develops somewhat of a friendship with the human flesh eating manticore who wants to help Naji break the curse also but only so she can eat him. I was a little upset that her character wasn't there for the entire book.

There is one other character besides the two main ones that deserves her own spotlight and that would be Marjani. She rocked in the first book and was even more amazing in The Pirates Wish. I loved learning more about her and who she was and where she came from, oh and her relationship with not just some everyday average person but with the Queen, that came out of no where but I was totally rooting for Marjani the whole time.

Now on to our main chracters Naji and Ananna. I still loved Ananna for her badassness but I couldn't stand how she was treating Naji. And then she was just so angsty it did get annoying at times. As for Naji well he was Naji, still insecure about that scar on his face and still our brooding hero. As for the relationship between the two the book definitely started with a whirlwind of tension between the two seeing how one of the first curses to be broken was a true loves kiss in which one didn't return the affection right off the bat. And the way it ended between the two, well it was different...did it end the way I would have wished it did? nope, but when you get to know the two characters and how determined and passionate they are about what and who they are the ending made sense.

Format: Paperback
Alright so where to begin with this book...

The pros:

The book had an interesting premise
Good and likeable major characters (outside of the Main love leads)
Interesting plot

The cons

I am a very picky reader in a sense, especially when it comes to these kinds of books, Ananna and Naji ruined the good feel of the book for me, their love was a whirlwind and I am not one for this kind of stuff. Ananna, herself, really disappointed me in this book as well because in Assassins Curse, she was a pretty strong willed character, but in this book she became a whiny obnoxious teenager just because a Naji didn't return the feelings of her kiss. It's a shame because this couple really had potential, but it flopped horribly, most of the time and unfortunately, as I tried ever so hard to like this book, most of what I can remember from it is Naji this, Naji that, Naji won't return my feelings. Again this was the only problem I personally had with the book, the rest of it was fine, but this single con was just too much to bear after she moped about it for... over half the book so it's just simply a shame. If you are fine with this kind of thing, then you'll most likely enjoy the book, but for those that share similar pet peeves to mine, it's a book to avoid.

Stranded on a dangerous magical island, Naji and Ananna encounter foes at every turn. But as they make their way off the island, and find a way to break Naji’s curse, they may realize that nothing ever goes as planned, including falling in love.


Okay, not going to lie. I PLOWED through this book after reading The Assassin’s Curse, which I loved. And The Pirate’s Wish is perfect ending to this duology. Ananna is still feisty but through the second book, we see her mature and experience some growing pains, including some very humiliating situations. My heart went out to her every time.

Naji is an assassin, eager to rid himself of this curse. But, like most boys, he’s confused by the growing affections he has towards his friend Ananna. And their relationship for most of the book is filled with misunderstandings and strenuous encounters.

Marjani is still leading her crew, and taking care of Naji and Ananna. She’s a wonderfully warm and human character. Her motherly advise and sweet talks with Ananna allow us to see both of them as complicated women and Marjani anchors the other characters, who are so seeped in magic, to life/warmth/heart.

Oh, and I’m not even going to start on the manticore. Hilarious.

I totally fell in love with these characters and honestly, I’m sad to leave them behind!

The plot moves just as fast as the first book. There’s adventure and pirates, princesses and shady crew members. Most of all, this book is filled with creativity! Strange hybrid animals and machines, the settings and enemies are so much fun. It’s Pirates of the Carribbean with magic.

And most of all, I loved the ending.
