You know a book is going to be amazing when this is the first sentence. I think one of the reasons that I loved this book so much was that I started reading it, but had to put it down to read a different book which I ended up HATING, and then this one was just sooooo much better in comparison XD. Of course, that is not the only reason I loved this book, so here are the many other ones:
DNF @34% Sorry to everyone who loves this series. I just cannot stand these characters any longer. Here's a quote from my fave, Kenji, the only tolerable person in this book, when he finally brought me some sanity by yelling at the whiny main character: "As far as I can tell, you've got food in your mouth and clothes on your back and a place to pee in peace whenever you feel like it.

Is it common for people to not like Adam?? He's the love interest book and besides his on
4.5/5 swashbuckling stars!
Going into this book, I was definitely not expecting to love it as much as I did. For some reason I thought it would read more like a middle grade, but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't!
While I can recognize some predictability and cheesy writing moments, overall I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was so much fun, and action packed, and definitely delivered onactually being a book about pirates.
I also really enjoyed our main charac
I'm not gonna say too much about this book, but to start I think that objectively speaking this is probably a 5/5 book, it's just that I rate my books subjectively and I only enjoyed this book as a 4/5. (This could potentially also be because many of my friends said that it was literally the best book they'd ever read, so I had some pretty high expectations going in.)
The writing is phenomenal. The descriptions are lush, but not overdone, and there are so many little connect
