Another thing was that the female lead seemed too passive. She didn't have any agency except for when it came to the lame girl fight, so it was hard to root for her. What bothered me a lot was glossing over her own assault years before and her coming to terms with before the story started. She supposedly knows some type of bar tricks to get the upper hand in a physical altercation but we never see that. The fact that the male lead has to give her the power was also annoying because it puts him as the one thats really in control.
The love story wasn't terrible even given all these alarm bells, it actually grew better than expected. The problem was that the characters weren't developed all the way. They're not all super flat but they aren't rounded to the point where you can see that character and understand where he or she is going and why.
Other than the confusion about the relationship between the captain and the other girl that was supposedly a sister but she managed to seduce him, the rest of it wasn't so bad. It's just dissapointing to go from loving it to going eh the plot is still alright. Hopefully the next couple won't be a repeat.
It is a period of pirates, magic, valuable medallions that men are willing to kill to possess. There is a lot of adventure as the Captain of his ship snatches her from her tavern and takes her away to safety. Of course he is the hero of the story and she the heroine. She is a tavern wench by birth so she has seen the seeder side of life. I enjoyed it even though it is a bit long for me. I would recommend it if you like adventure, pirates, bad guys, etc.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this writer. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
Okay, so other than that eerily similar set up, Blood and Treasure does diverge from the movie plot, thankfully. Of course, at its center it is a romance, but I enjoyed the medallion plot and the cat fights much more! Obviously, Captain Zane kidnaps Lianna since she has the medallion, but there's attraction so they fall in love and save the world together. That's all well and good, except that I didn't feel the romance. It was a lot of telling rather than showing. But I loved all of the tension between Lianna and Sadie, whom is a woman from Zane's past who is also trying to get the medallion from him by using her feminine wiles! There is plenty of fighting, both verbal and physical between those two!
Blood and Treasure really wasn't anything special. It's kind of cheesy, but it's so fun! I mean, it's about pirates and cursed treasure, so how can it not?! There's an interesting twist at the end, but it's one of those twists, where it's actually stated earlier in the story but no one takes it seriously until some proof shows up. I quite liked that. And that ending? SOOO BAD! Really, it's so cheesy and awful but I loved it!
I don't know if I would call her gently bred as the summary does but she is definitely more educated than your typical girl in a tavern. She is stopped one night by a man who hides a medallion on her and tells her to give it to no one. That in the hands of the wrong person it could be very dangerous. So she holds on to it and then man dies that same night. Then you have men in and out of the tavern looking for the medallion and only one figures out that she has it. Of course it's Zane. When she refuses to hand it over (or admit she has it) he decides to just take her as well. Now while it made for a wonderful story, why didn't he just take it from her? But hey we will never know.
On board the ship she agrees to hand it over when they port and he arranges to have her sent home. Things don't go as intended and he ends up with the medallion once and then gives it back to her to make her feel safe. Cue the ex-girlfriend and what you have is a lot of misconceptions about each other and someone else only wanting to make the situation worse.
The ending was unexpected by far and I would recommend this book!
