Jill was not a very interesting protagonist. The premise for the book, and the plot was interesting, but when it's being led by a whiney, self-centered brat like Jill it gets harder to enjoy. I thought it was a little weird that there is like, voodoo magic with Blain and the sword, but it wasn't voo...

I picked this book up on bookoutlet for less than a dollar. I didn't expect it to be such a cute, yet captivating story. I had never read a book about a girl who could fence before and I found it really interesting. I loved how her fencing tied in with her fighting as a pirate. This book has mad...

2 12 stars. I honestly didn't care one way or the other. Jill was bland. She had nothing going for her to make you like her as a character. The premise in in self was pretty good but was not executed in a way that made it interesting or fun to read.

Will she find something else to do? Her family goes on a vacation in the Bahamas, but Jill is unable to stop thi...

This book is really good. The title, the summary, the cover. All fab. Especially the guy name: Harry! That just adds more of my like to the name.

When I first picked up this book, I thought "Oooh! Pirates!" It definitely sounded promising. I even read this book this year, probably in the beginnings of January. It didn't interest me, as of the first hundred or so pages. And since I had a lot of books to read, I had to abandon this one!

I’m a bit sorry to say that I’ve become quite the bit of the pirate book snob. The amusing thing about that statement is that I can’t say I’ve read a huge quantity of pirate books. What I have read, though, are all of the Jackey Faber books which are pretty much supreme in their historic accuracy as...
