I don‘t know what more to say about this book other than I loved it! Onto the second book: Death Doesn‘t Bargain!
I‘ve been a long-time Sherrilyn Kenyon fan, though I dropped off after Acheron. The storylines had become a bit too predictable. I was happy to see her take on a new series, and this set up is great fun because PIRATES! Dead pirates, but pirates nonetheless. Some great world building, some mythology I‘m going to need to look up, a good dose of humor, and some romance.
I love Sherrilyn Kenyon and I love a lot of her books. But this was highly anticipated disappointment for me on a non stop train. You start with a character that isn't your main character, we skip entire action scenes, and it only gets worse. I had to stop reading it, which really breaks my heart. 💔
This hurt my heart as she's one of my top three favorites. This book was just incredibly predictable, but worse it was boring. This was supposed to be a Dark Hunter adjacent book, but had zero of the qualities of a Dark Hunter book. I found myself skipping through and once I put it down I had no desire to go back. I won't be reading be the other two. Life's too short and my TBR will outlive me anyway.
I'm sorry guys I love pirate's and the Dark Hunter series but this book sucked. It took all I had to push myself and make myself finish it. The story is kind of intresting but it bounces around to much and nothing grabs you. Plus #pnr is all about the romance and I found the main relationship weak. Don't waste your money or time I really wish U bailed on this.
The premise sounded great & I had high hopes. But I read a little over 3 chapters & I don't like it. I'm bored and the writing is not very good. NEXT!
I wanted to love this book, but sadly the adventure it promised was squashed in favor of a cookie cutter forbidden, revenge filled romance (maybe I've read too many of these!).
I'm a Sherrilyn Kenyon fan, but this missed the mark for me. Too many characters and subplots that get buried by info dumping. I sped read through 1/2 the book. I kept wanting a big redeeming piece for the original adventure promised - but it never happened.
I'm home sick today and I've had this beautiful book laying on the bed with me, but I can not focus on it enough to even understand what is going on! #sadface
3.5 stars - I'm completely lost in her universe, yet Ms. Kenyon kept me entertained with this rollicking pirate-ish adventure story and I will read the rest of the trilogy as they are published. And oh man, how she likes to torment her characters.
I was really looking forward to this book. While I will say it wasn't a disappointment, it wasn't quite what I hoped. I know that there is a need to introduce everyone, but it seemed like parts of it twisted up and frankly, I was lost a few times. Nevertheless, I will return and hope for a more straightforward story next time.
I just wanted to share how awesome this book is!☠️ I'm really looking forward to reading this. Kenyon has the ability to create amazing worlds and characters but has gotten lazy lately. I'm excited that this is a new series so she can't reuse chapters from other books. Fingers crossed that this isn't just a recycled story from her other series. If there's a pair of twins that hate each other I think I'll officially be done with her. 🤞😏
