I truly enjoyed this book for what it was, a pirate book about a pretty strong heroine. That is what I expected from the title and blurb, and for the most part that is what I got! The author, Catherine Banks, put a lot of effort into building this world and creating some very believable and strong characters. That being said, I'm not really a fan of her writing style - it's a little more middle grades for my taste, while the actual story is more suited for an older teen audience. It's a simple story that leaves you wanting to know more at the end.
This book is long. Very long. Longer than most YA books I've read - but for the most part held my interest all the way up to the end. I just wish I'd have gotten more of my questions answered. There were also a lot of typical YA trophs used... and most of the plot was extremely predictable. (While that doesn't really bother me, I just felt like I was re-reading another YA book SET in a pirate world).
There were some exciting adventures - magic, fighting, and even love. The world/universe that Banks created was interesting and left a lot of room for some really great plot ideas. I feel like she could have done more in less words, overall. I felt like there was way more potential! I'm not sure if I would pick up a sequel. I just didn't connect or relate to this book like I wanted to, or to the way that Banks writes.

Join a high seas adventure. Tilia is a young girl being brought up by her pirate father. Her mother, who passed away, was royalty and heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Crilan. As per her mother’s request, Tilia goes to live with her aunt and uncle to learn the finer points of being a lady. It is soon learnt that one can put a lady in a pirate, but can’t take the pirate out of the lady.
Tilia is the best of all fantasy characters. Not only is she a strong female protagonist, but she is an enjoyable one as well. The side of her that is a pirate does occasionally overtake the magical and fairy-tale princess roles, but overall, Banks has blended the three into one well-rounded personality.
The side characters are equally as fun. The current King and Queen (Tilia’s Uncle and Aunt) are regal and proper one minute and deadly the next.
As with most young adult fantasy books, readers may find falling in love a little too easy for the main characters. Hold onto your hats though, this sets up some large adventures later in the book.
The cover art, in my opinion, is a smidgen too grown up for the story. A younger model may benefit potential readers.
The language and subject matter is geared towards young adult audiences. More mature readers may find that the outcome is a little too easy to predict. The story, however, is enjoyable for all ages.
Recommended read for pirate lovers!
Rated: 4 out of 5 stars
You can feel the love in this story between everyone. The fun bickering and picking on each other, makes you smile. You feel like a part of the book. There is always something going on.
So many surprises. I didn't think Tilia was going to fall for the person she did. I was very surprised to find out who Jax was.
Everyone is kind and sweet to each other but at the same time very deadly.
I really enjoyed this book and hope there are more books to follow! I would love for this to turn into a series.
