DESCRIPTION:

Brant’s life is planned for him. He will attend the best academic school in England, run his father’s estate, and marry well. But, with the sea calling to him, and a father that treats him more like a soldier to be commanded than a son, he takes off to find his own destiny.

What Brant doesn’t know, is that the sea is a cruel mistress, and once she owns you she won’t let you go.
 

MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

This was a fun beginning to what I hope to be a fantastic series.   

Brant's life is all planned out for him, or so his father thinks.  Brant on the other hand has a dream of being on the sea. 

When Brant decides to go to see, he heads out to the docks to see if anyone is willing to take him on and teach him the ropes.   He gets on a pirate ship and learns everything there is to know about sailing, and piracy.  

When the opportunity comes for him to have his own ship, things at home start going in a different direction.  Brant's father is sick and he feels he needs to return home to care for his brother.  

Brant knows that he is going to have to go back out to see, and decides he is going to take his brother with him.

This was a fun novella.  I am anxious for the next book in the series.  I hope that it will just get better.

Source:  I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way for this review.  These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the book.

WHERE TO BUY:
