    This is the feminist pirate story that I’ve been waiting for all my life with badass women who promote sisterhood and fight with each and every muscle of their bodiesDo you even know how hard it is to find a good pirate story without ridiculousness misogynistic pirates who think of women as property and bad pirate jokes?It’s hard man it’s really hard There’s The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue that a lot of people seem to love I guess but personally the male hero rubbed me the wrong way and I just could not finish it But I enjoyed myself tremendously with this book It follows a large group of female pirates with Caledonia as their captain who hides a terrible secret These women do not care about makeup dresses gossip or Justin Bieber These are women that will order you to give them twenty if you speak out of turn and kill you if you turn your back on themThese badass pirates especially hate Bullets who terrorize the sea and its ships Even kings and ueens on land respond to Aric’s commands because his powerful influence extends beyond the waters and his blood thirstiness knows no respite But Caledonia and her crew has had enough of him They want to take him down one ship at a time It’s exciting It’s different It’s uniue Adventurous Action packed Full of themes like loyalty trust friendship family and revenge There is even an unexpected love story There are LGBTIA characters but the lesbian relationship that is included is so shoved into the background that I can’t tell you much about it sadly That was very disappointing But I was still pleasantly surprised with the person Caledonia fell in love with I approve?

    ARC provided by Penguin in exchange for an honest review “Never underestimate the girls of this world” And the award for best prologue of 2018 goes to Seafire Seriously this prologue was beyond words amazing It not only made me feel every single emotion under the sun but it had me on the edge of my seat for the entire twenty pages Perfection seriously perfection And such a wonderful way to start this amazing story I hate comparing books especially two new releases but Seafire is everything that I wish These Rebel Waves was Pirates the open sea a beautiful ff side romance a found family of girls who feel lost but come together to create something so powerful You all I loved this book Seafire stars a young pirate crew leader named Caledonia and her first mate Pisces as they are picking up the pieces of something catastrophic that happened four years ago And during those long four years they have found a family of fifty two girls who they sail the waters with And all of these girls are willing to do anything to protect their captain and their crew In this world a mysterious man named Aric rules the water He has fleets upon fleets all under his control and rules most of the ports with his power He also takes and receives boys from all around the waters and trains them to become Bullets who are as cutthroat as they come And Caledonia and her crew know to never believe a word that any of them say because they are also as untrustworthy as they come too That is until the day one saves Pisces from death betrays his crew of Bullets and is brought on to Caledonia’s ship His name is Oran and despite his good deed Cal and her crew want to throw him overboard Yet he is harboring information that completely changes everything that Caledonia and Pisces have ever believed And they are forced to risk it all on the word of one Bullet who they have spent their entire lives promising to never trust Seafire has some really amazing themes on top of this amazing story too I know I touched on this briefly above but the found family in this book is so damn beautiful Probably one of my favorites I’ve ever read and that’s really saying something There is also a constant and underlying message of how people shouldn’t be judged by the mistakes or actions of their family both blood and found “Our first family shall not be our last” Also give me an entire book just about Hime and Amina because I am weak and in love with them being in love Seriously I was living for these side characters and their love for one another And Hime also uses sign language to communicate with the crew and is dealing with a tremendous amount of PTSD from her past Needless to say at this point in my life I would completely die for this fictional pirate baby Thank you Overall I loved this I had such an amazing time while reading and I truly never wanted to put this book down From the addictive writing to the captivating setting to the heartwarming girls to the heartbreaking twists; I loved it all I think this book is going to be a complete hit upon release and I recommend it with my whole heart Well what’s left of it after the ending of this book Seriously I need the next installment immediatelyBlog | Instagram | Twitter | Tumblr | Youtube | Twitch The uotes above were taken from an ARC and are subject to change upon publicationContent and trigger warnings for murder death grief depiction physical abuse captivity loss of a loved one violence and many battle scenesBuddy read with Amy at A Court of Crowns and uills Lilly at Lair of Books ❤

    This review and other non spoilery reviews can be found The Book PrescriptionDNF 33 tual Rating 15 stars “Never underestimate the girls of this world”🌟 Currently there are only 6 people who rated this 1 star and I am one of those people I feel bad about it but I just can’t I gave this many chances and I decided finally that it is just not for me🌟 The day this book was released I was excited for it but then I wasn’t in the mood to read it so I finished Mirage and City of Ghosts and a couple of days later I am in the mood again to read this so I picked it up immediately🌟 I also hadn’t much luck with mermaids and Pirate stories this year And there were many I thought that this was going to save the day but it looks like I am not into the whole pirate thing I really love the cover and a really wanted to love the book too🌟 My problem was with the writing style I did not like it I went into this and felt sleepy after a few chapters I thought it may be due to studying and I was tired I put it down and picked it up at a later break where the same thing happened again and againI had insomnia that night and I was flipping in my bed and I decided to read this I read 2 pages and I slept immediately I swear this truly happened and not an exaggeration🌟 I just couldn’t get into the story I tried once and twice and thrice and I found a moment or two where I saw a light at the end of the tunnel where I thought I will finally get into the story only to lose interest a couple of pages later🌟 So I don’t know if the problem was me or with the writing or with the whole Pirates genre but I gave this many chances and read exactly one third of it before giving up on it and deciding to DNF I don’t feel regret or interest in the story after I let it sink in I do recommend trying the book if you like it then it is great but if you can’t get into it then you probably won’t

    Never underestimate the girls of this worldI mean it is a girls only pirate ship The level of badassery is sky high Of course I wanted to read it Seafire was a thrilling and highly suspenseful novel The sea is ruled by Aric Athair a ruthless man who takes children from their families drugs them with Silt in order to make them compliant and kills everyone who stands in his way This is how Caledonia Styx lost her family Four years later she is the captain of a crew of brave and loyal young women who try to take out Athair's ships one at a time in order to seek revenge and limit his powerThe many tricky situations and risky manoeuvres that this crew experienced had me on the edge of my seat The fact that most of them made it out alive is a miracle Overall this books had some serious Six of Crows vibes which is high praise let me tell youI loved the crew of the Mors Navis Pisces Redtooth Amina Hime Nettle all of these girls are fantastic But I am no fan of Caledonia's Her narrow mindedness and stubbornness grew and annoying and the stunt she pulls toward the end of the novel did not help in making her relatable She is the captain of her crew she praises trust in your sisters over everything else but she fails to act like it Suffice it to say it threw me offWhat I would have like to see are ff relationships Come on 53 girls and not a single ueer romance? Of course this book's focus is not on romance at all Yes Caledonia does fall for a guy at one point but it is of a subplot I think that when you have the chance to showcase a healthy lesbian relationship why wouldn't you? Representation matters so the three hints that there might or might not be something going on between some of the crew members simply do not sufficeIn a nutshell a thrilling plot and fantastic concept that somehow failed to get me hooked I am looking forward to the seuels though But I hope that it will feature a different main character or at least alternating POV's Thank you to PRH International and NetGalley for providing this ARCFind of my books on Instagram

    4 12I really enjoyed this More so than I thought I would honestly It has awesome female pirates who root for each other and not tear each other downI thought the plot moved along nicely as well The only thing I didn't love was the romance I thought this book could have gone completely without itOverall would def recommend this book

    Something that not everyone may know is that I have a huge pirate fetish always have and always will When seeing Seafire by Natalie C Parker the first time I knew this was a must read a whole trilogy of badss female pirates?? I couldn’t get a copy fast enough and thankfully I did because wow this was amazingThey story begins a few years in the past as Caledonia Styx and her friend are sent by Caledonia’s mother to shore to search for food on what they believe is a deserted island Caledonia is confronted by a bullet a soldier in Aric Athair’s army Being not much than a kid Caledonia falls for his lies and it costs everyone aboard her family’s ship their livesFast forward to the current day with Caledonia having survived that bullet attack years before and she and her friend having formed their own crew aboard what is now Caledonia’s ship The entire crew has been made up of girls just like Caledonia who have lost those close to them to Aric Athair’s army and now they fight back every chance they getAfter reading Seafire I can safely say that it was everything I could have hoped for and The story is intense as these ladies are everything you could wish for in an amazing pirate crew battling with everything they have The world building uickly brought me into the adventure on the sea in a world controlled by a tyrant The characters uickly became friends and family just the way they are to one another And to top this all off this one just screams female empowerment with the girls doing everything men could and since they are the only ones fighting back and not caving to the demands of a cruel and unjust world Nothing to say other than read this one you will not regret it at allI received an advance copy from the publisher via Penguin’s First to ReadFor reviews please visit

    Honestly the only disappointing part of this book was the fact that I expected so much gayness There is a sapphic side couple though And I love it I thought this would be a sapphic pirate book though Also look at me finally writing a review on Goodreads Is this a milestone or whatAnyways this book is set in a world where this guy Aric runs entire fleets of men called Bullets and also fleets of women but I forgot what they are called so anyways he controls them by drugging them with Silt something that basically runs through their blood and gets them addicted This about an all female ship led by Caledonia Styx whose entire family was basically killed because she didn’t kill a Bullet so she now has a neverending hatred of all Bullets I feel like if you enjoyed Daughter of the Pirate King you'll enjoy this one because same vibesKiersten White Julie Murphy and Dhonielle Clayton blurbed this what else is there so sayBut besides the unfortunate lack of gayness the beginning was interesting but a bit slow However during the last 50% it gets from 0 to 100 real uick I just think that we should pray that in the seuel sapphic pirates are introduced because yes⟶ characters 🌊I think these were my favorite part of the story Caledonia was the main character who is supposed to be the leader but literally everything in her life is falling apart including her friends and her ship and just I think that’s a metaphorical definition of me? She’s literally the definition of a “mom friend” and she’s so loved by her ship and I just I FEEL THE WARMTH OF ALL OF THEIR LOVE Hime is the tiny girl who whenever she stands up everyone immediately screams at her to sit back down she needs to be protected And that’s literally my definition of her I love her so much She also uses sign language to communicate with others and was formerly a “Bullet the female version” and she’s lowkey traumatized from it and I just Have so many fuzzy feelings for her Did I mention she’s sapphic because that triples my love for her x9000 Pisces is the definition of Your Annoying Sister but Caledonia still loves her for it even though they fight 247 throughout this novel She’s Caledonia’s oldest friend and was there when their entire family basically was massacred and she helped rebuild their fleet and their friendship is SO STRONG and so REALISTIC and I just love the altogether girl on girl love and feminism in this book Also she’s a poc and brown skinnedOran is the only main male character in this story and he’s the only male I condone He’s also a former Bullet just like Hime and he’s basically captured in a ship for like A while but he still survives and retains his witty and clever personality I’m half in love with him His personality doesn’t really show until like the last 25% percent of the book because He’s like gagged the first 75% but it’s ok We love him anyways ⟶ setting 🌊I love stories that are mainly set in the sea Our characters travel for like 100% of the book and I know that a lot of people hate travelling stories but pls stay and setting is magical and gorgeous and all in all worth itWe basically stay on the ship for most of this since this is pretty character driven but there’s Cloudbreak which is basically this merchant’s place and it’s messy and we love a confusing trading center Then there’s the Slagger’s village which is a self sustaining scavengering village that live in a swamp like area and this book needs a map thanks ⟶ relationships 🌊Caledonia and Oran are honestly a power couple because Caledonia is this fierce feminist girl and Oran is highkey afraid of her and metaphorically speaking if Caledonia and Oran were lights Oran would dim himself for Caledonia because for some reason I like turning the characters into lights But anyways their relationship is a slowburn and basically enemies to lovers except not really enemies and it’s just about Caledonia learning to be trustful of former Bullets and trusting Oran and Oran being magical and amazing and I love them both HIME AND AMINA ARE SUCH A CUTE SAPPHIC COUPLE THEY ARE ICONIC AND LITERALLY HIME COULD BE PENT UP WITH ANGER BUT AMINA WOULD LITERALLY JUST STEP WITHIN FIVE FEET OF HER AND HIME WOULD CALM DOWN THAT’S LITERALLY ONE OF THE SCENES IN THE NOVEL I would die for Amina and Hime to be together and watching their relationship felt like that warm feeling in your stomach when you drink hot chocolate⟶ conclusion 🌊I think we’ve all realized that this book is amazing and feminist and fierce and also that I deserve a star for putting so much effort into a goodreads reviewalso here are some sapphic pirate books⇀ These Rebel Waves⇀ The Abyss Surrounds Us⇀ The Unbinding of Mary ReadeI wasn't ready for that ending 🌊

    “remember when they call you girl they’re trying to tell you something they’re trying to tell you that they’re than you that the body you’re in makes you less but you know and i know that you’re exactly what you need to be” yeah no i wanted to love this i really did i was totally on board for female pirates who empower fellow females but that was the only aspect of the story that i have enjoyed the portrayal of sisterhood was truly great but every other thing was so incredibly underwhelming??? i didn’t connect to any characters at all and even the protagonist could’ve died and i’d be like meh moving onhonestly other than the female empowerment aspect mentioned above i’m finding it very hard to point out anything because nothing really stood out the writing wasn’t really gripping in my opinion and all in all the general atmosphere was really lackingedit after further consideration i’ve decided to lower my rating to two stars because it’s very telling that i hardly remember anything that happened in this book and literally couldn’t care less about what happens next and therefore will also not be continuing on with the series any → 2 stars
