“Sometimes there is a love that transcends times and space…This is our story.” (5)
Prologue was beautifully written and captivating. Then the story dives in with a man’s love for the seas. A captain, a pirate, a soldier, whatever one may call him, he traversed the waters, navigating adventures, pillaging and plundering. Suddenly, the reader is thrust into a Pirates of the Caribbean world with its historical significance and enriching dialogue. However, the start-up didn’t quite compel me as much as the Johnny Depp movie. It was pretty slow in the beginning. In fact, it kind of continued on the same lag for the bulk of the story. Sailors, Ladies, Kings, and Trojans all abounded in this convoluted tale.
I thought this would be a story of love, judging by the title, summary, and prologue. Oddly, I found the prologue to be the most alluring aspect of it.
This is mainly an adventure story with a splash of historical romance, which is fine and dandy but not really my niche.
My rating: 2 stars
