I dived into Pirate Princess without knowing what I was going to get and I have to say that I was pleasently surprised by it =)
Pirate Princess transports you to a magical world in every sense of the word. It will captivate, charm and capture your whole being. I loved every character and the uniqueness in each of them. I was infenitely delighted with both the setting and the characters. It has been quite some time since I encountered such complex yet charming characters at the same time.
Truthfully Pirate Princess had me glued to its pages from the way to go. It is full of magic, adventure, action, romance and passion. Though I missed some more passion and spicy scenes among Finn and Tillia. The only thing that led me down was the narrative, at times it was fine but others it was jumping from a scene to another without a connection and it made me lose the track a couple of times.
I sincerely can´t wait to read its sequel. And I would love to read a book about how Esmeralda and Jared got together!
