COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Great Read submitted by lost.in.austenland on January 16, 2010, 9:53pm A great read. It will alter your view of pirates. Nancy is one of those Robin Hood like heroines that you'd love to have as your best friend.

Awesome submitted by spacelyga on June 23, 2011, 4:42pm This is one of my favorite books of all time. I read it all the time. I must have read it 12 times. Its so awesome!

A Favorite submitted by adipirro on July 6, 2011, 7:22pm This is one of my favorite books! I recommend it to all my friends. She seems to like writting about Robin Hood like heroines, as one of her other books, "Sovay," has a similar main character.

entangling adventure submitted by jennifer-ricks on August 18, 2011, 3:57pm I really enjoyed reading this book. The story line was entangling and I enjoyed the adventure. Well written. I will be looking for more books by this author.
