As honestly as talented J.M Aucion is, and believe me the writing is in fact that good, the 25 page length simply whetted and frankly frustrated my appetite. I would indeed consider buying a full length novel of 300+ pages by this author, but at .99 cents per 25 pages strung along, individually collecting these works would be a 12 dollars or more, and I am not a fan of the serial story (although serials have a long and very distinguished history of true literary greatness). However, on its own merits, stylistic qualities, and clean formatting, A PIRATE'S HONOR is a solid read, especially for teens that have trouble getting past a handful of paragraphs.
I read 'A Pirate's Honor'..ok..read is not a good term. I DEVOURED it!
Why do you suck! Because that story was soo good that it is forcing my to put your books at the top of my list to buy when I do my next order. You ruined my finely crafted book wait list by providing a quick free story that was soo engrossing that I want....no...NEED to read more of your work as soon as possible.
In short..you suck but rock at the same time!
Sometimes a short story is perfect - in a waiting room, kid's nap time, or other case where you want a complete story in little time.
It's hard to flesh out characters in 25 pages, but Aucoin manages to do just that. He packs a lot into a 30 minute read and it left me wanting to know a bit more what these characters would get up to next.
In this short story, pirate captain Jake Hawking moors his ship in the port town of Kingston and is immediately confronted by strange stares and whispers behind hands. He's familiar with Kingston; its residents are familiar with him. So why this odd, standoffish reception?
When he discovers the reason, the murder of an old friend for which he is accused, he is faced with how to handle a situation that is meant to bring his death.
There is a lot of action in this well written story. as well as a twist at the end. I highly recommend it for those who love tales of the sea.
I can’t wait to read the next two installments (downloading next one after I submit this review), and I truly hope to see more by this author in the future.
