Description

I am not familiar with the story of Blackbeard, but I'm assuming this is a prequel; how Blackbeard came about. Also I feel the supporting characters of Darmour, Orjan and Navi could've been better off being introduced much earlier - I found them to be pretty interesting.

Although the book offers excellent world building and interesting characters, the story lacks excitement and seems to drag on, with only a few captivating action scenes. Instead, we have another group of characters who were unlikeable or at best characters I was indifferent to. That he then rides without pause to the capital, and then within an hour (I'm estimating) rides out of the capital with two additional people on it, to escape pursuit. So when she and her sisters are dragged from their home and put on trial for witchcraft, she’s horrified to be trapped between being enslaved in the king’s forces or execution.Instead, I get a man who tries to run his horse to death, almost lets his sister's saviour freeze to death and a ship that by all rights should have sunk the second they left the harbour. However, there are some pacing issues for me and I really wish I’d gotten to see more of Esara and her mind space. The story revolves around two characters who initially have separate stories but eventually come together.

I can tell you everything you want to know about Captain Jack Sparrow, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan, but I can't even name a secondary character from movies 4 or 5. This sequel follows two main characters: Zerina, a young woman who is on the run for possessing illegal magical abilities, and Ulrik, a sailor who must protect his young sister, Esara, after their mother is murdered for her magical powers.I wanted more about Zerina getting to know Ulrik, and really solidify the relationship between the three main characters.

There were a few subversive plot twists I quite liked, although I was a bit sad that certain characters didn't get to realise certain dreams. The premise for this book was so promising, and I was really hoping for strong, powerful female characters. This is the second book in the series, though these characters and events save the mentioning of the leader of the "bad guys" had nothing to do with book one. Things don't work out as planned and he and his sister Esara and friend Zerina which is also accused of being a witch and has also lost her two sisters. While the plot had potential, there wasn't enough substance to keep me guessing throughout my listen.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

In this book you meet 3 characters, a soldier Ulrik who comes back from working on one of the Kings merchant boats to find his mother and his younger sister Esara missing. From intricacies of plotting and scene-setting to character development, Beswick expanded his skill set as he poured his heart into the pages. I could barely follow the characters on their adventure because of all the deaths, I mean people were dropping like flies. The world could be very interesting - while not being overly creative since it relies so heavily on stories/myth that already exists - putting it together in this way could be amazing.

Right, positivos - the three leads, Zerina, Ulrik and Esara, carried my interest from start to finish. I am both looking forward to the future books but at the same time and begrudge to have to listen to her more. The story was interesting perhaps caused in part because I was not yet familiar with the underlying folk tale.
