I know that sounds negative, but overall it was good & I really liked Travay. I'll be recommending this book to my friends & I'll likely pick up future books from this author.
As a side note I heard about this book from Marylu Tyndall's blog. Is it just me or is this book a combination of her books The Redemption & The Red Siren? I'm not going to detail the plot points because it would be a major spoiler, but it's a thought...
1) A LOT of damsel in distress rescues! (I personally love heroic rescues and for any book to have a good rating I require one good rescue. This one had so many, I lost count.)
2) One amazing discription scene of a storm. It reminded me of the movie The Perfect Storm.
3) The plot had potential. It atleast was interesting enough that despite some of the things I absolutely hated about the book, I finished reading it, just to know the end.
4) It's a clean read. Yes people, no sex! It defies reason why some authors think that sex scenes are needed to write a good romance.
What I absolutely HATED about this book:
1) It was super preachy. Which wouldn't be a bad thing if it were true but the way god is described by the "christian" characters in the story is so wrong it's nearly blasphemous. Just think for a minute, what kind of god plays games with people's lives? And thankfully the main characters had a HEA but then what does that say about countless others that don't get a HEA in this life? They weren't good enough? God doesn't really care? I mean, it doesn't work. I hate it when they potray god as a cruel, petty child that purposely manipulates certain outcomes. Look I'm all for inspirational stories that throw out an occasional positive idea. Mostly because I know said books will be PG. Well enough, I don't want to offend but really there came a point where I would skim those portions because they literally were making me flinch.
2) There wasn't a hair split in two of common sense in any of the main characters and their personalities were completely underdeveloped. Lucan the H was an uncommunicative martyr who for no good reason has always loved the most self-absorbed self-righteous, wishy-washy, self-serving, egotistic, vain, dim-witted brat of a heroine I've ever seen penned on paper. But I suppose as long as you have gorgeous auburn hair and sky blue eyes it makes perfect sense! He was a dashing hero to be sure but I lost all respect for him by the middle of the book. To be honest, I was more interested in his friend Thorpe. Which hint hint it might have been nice to have developed his character more as an added side plot in the story so we wouldn't have been obligated to tolerate the 2 main ones throughout the whole book. I would have liked to have know more about Sinbad too. Was terribly curious about his story but the author never addressed it.
3) Travay Travay,...well she was everything I just mentioned about her multiplied by 3. She was such a snooty, mean spirited brat that I wasn't really invested in her escaping the clutches of Mr. Poole. To be honest, by the end of the book, she sort of would have deserved being married to someone like that...Well, no, I'll take that back, but I don't think she deserved Lucas either. Besides u can tell their marriage is headed for disaster considering neither one really knows how to spare the 5 mins it takes to "communicate" all the facts in order to avoid misunderstandings!
4) So many loose ends! So Lucas was saved but what happened to Thorpe and Sinbad and D-something? It's sort of hinted that they were there at the end but no clarification was made as to whether they were pardoned. Lucas' mother hasn't been rescued and with all the disasters our heroes kept encountering at sea, I have very low expectations they'll survive any future missions. What of Aunt Merle? Did she go back home? Is she back to selling her herbs? Personally, I thought her and Thorpe would have been good together if she were younger than potrayed and he was actually older than Lucas.
5) No common sense! I'm not going to go into detail on this one cause it's irritating. But my biggest pet peave is lack of planning. And the characters in this book Never planned their actions! They always just reacted to their situations. No wonder they kept falling into one scrape after another! Just plain DUMB!
So there it is. If you're starved for heroic rescues and swashbuckling drama. Go ahead read the book. It won't kill you. But if you have a real issue with any of the cons I mentioned you may want to avoid it.
All statements are a matter of personal opinion if anyone doesn't agree that's fine too. This was just my take on the book. If the author's intent was to potray her characters as I described them then she's one of the best authors I've read because she did a smashing job of it!
