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, whose lives have been turned upside down by Aric and his men. The crew has one misson: stay alive, and take down Aric’s armed and armored fleet.
But when Caledonia’s best friend and second-in-command just barely survives an attack thanks to help from a Bullet looking to defect, Caledonia finds herself questioning whether or not 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?
Why am I excited?
PIRATES. YES. ALL FEMALE PIRATES. I absolutely loved Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller so this is definitely a must-read for me. There have been so many great YA pirate books coming out lately and it’s hard to keep track! Do I sense a possible romance between this Bullet defect and the protagonist? Not much is revealed in this synopsis besides the fact that it’s all about survival and taking down the bad guy, but I’m hoping for an epic sea adventure of sorts!
