Goodreads Book Blurb:
Series / Genres:
I spent the first half of the book forcing my way through, Felicity’s ‘I’m not like the other girls’ attitude grating on my nerves. I felt like I had been tricked into reading this book, she had been the only bright light in the first book of the series and so I thought this would be great! Instead, it felt even worse going into a book already liking a character and then finding them almost unbearable.
Luckily, this does improve. You get to see actual character growth from Felicity as she reconnects with her childhood friend and realises that maybe she isn’t always the victim of the narrative she’s created. From this point, the book gets much more palatable.
I think maybe if there had just been character growth and piracy and adventure I would’ve been more inclined to rate this higher. The addition of sea dragons and the initial character personalities were a bit too much to overcome for me. I think I’ve given this series more than a fair shot and I’m just not compatible with the author’s writing style.
