Welcome back everyone, after reading and reviewing Lisa Kessler’s she mentioned that she had a new book available on NetGalley. So of course I had to go and check it out!
I knew I was coming in part way through the series so a few things might be spoiled for earlier books. What I wanted to know was whether this as another series I wanted to invest time in.
And my answer is yes. I’ll be keeping an eye out for the rest of the series as they’re released and looking into getting the previous books.
Immortal pirates wasn’t something I’d thought of when I’d imagined the various ways paranormal beings could be described. The piracy coupled with psychic gifts made for an interesting read! The way Heather’s ability to speak to the dead was described and used, it felt like it added a lot of value (both for the main story but also a couple of funny and sweet moments) to a few different characters development.
The bit at the end where she uses her gift had me chuckling. Trying to imagine who she could’ve been talking to has me really intrigued to read Flynn’s story now!
I also loved how Heather was able to combine something that Drake enjoys, with modern technology to gain his interest. The poor guy can’t stand modern technology and yet she manages to kinda change his mind on how bad it is.
Lisa has woven together mythology (Davy Jones and other well-known relics), the supernatural (mediums, root doctors etc) and an ongoing battle happening in the modern world in a similar way to the Muse Chronicles series. Yet still unique!
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review; on Monday I’ll be reviewing The Unexpected Inlander by Kellyn Thompson.
