Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. It’s a great way to talk about a book from your TBR list and just kind of show it off. Instead of weekly, I do them monthly. This month is a YA novel that’s been on my TBR list for some time. I am currently reading “Kidnapped” by Robert Louis Stevenson and although they are only on a ship for the beggining of the story, I’m feeling the seafaring vibes. This book I’m featuring for my October Goodreads Monday is not only a pirate type story, but I also hear it features an almost all female cast. It’s also a series that could be fun (or time sucking) if I end up enjoying it once I get my hands on it.
So here it is, my October Goodread pick from my TBR list.
Seafire by Natalie C. Parker
After her family is killed by corrupt warlord Aric Athair and his bloodthirsty army of Bullets, Caledonia Styx is left to chart her own course on the dangerous and deadly seas. She captains her ship, the Mors Navis, with a crew of girls and women just like her, who have lost their families and homes because of Aric and his men. The crew has one mission: stay alive, and take down Aric’s armed and armored fleet.
But when Caledonia’s best friend and second-in-command barely survives an attack thanks to help from a Bullet looking to defect, Caledonia finds herself questioning whether to let him join their crew. Is this boy the key to taking down Aric Athair once and for all . . . or will he threaten everything the women of the Mors Navis have worked for?
