“Never underestimate the girls of this world”
This story is about Caledonia Styx, the captain of Mors Navis and her band of ship crew, which is all female woho! And they all are kinda bad-ass.
The book starts with a backlog chapter explaining how things started and what happened “before” and then cuts back to the current events… Where the crew of Mors Navis, all girls and women, whose lives have been turned upside down by Aric and his men are trying to survive and take down Aric’s armed and armored fleet..
Caledonia and her crew Pisces, Redtooth, Amina, Hime, Nettle, were really brave and strong. Each one was full of strength and we’re so ready to pull of jobs and defeat enemy. Each one has their own specialties that they master at like, like tech, navigation etc. And I really love self-fulfilling awesome crew.
Caledonia might be a difficult person to like for some people. Despite being so strong she was secretly sometimes afraid, doubtful and lost. And it did make her stubborn. But she had a back story to support. And she does have a nice beautiful arc to tackle that and i enjoyed her journey.
There is the whole villain thing the mysterious warlord Aric Athair, and his band of Bullets. They really made awesome villains to bring down. And yeah cant wait to see this myth Aric in the next book…
I would describe this book as a modern dystopia, or a futuristic dystopia. The ships and the tech used and described is pretty darn advanced and isn’t medieval at all. It kinda makes it so much fun.
There is a lot of action involved in this book. Almost 90% of the times something was going down and that too on sea!! So it just increased the risk 20% more than usual and you would be like ahhhhhh!
My only complaint would be WHERE THE HECK IS THE MAP???!??????!?!
Overall, The book is fun, exciting filled with action. It heavily based on family, friendship and trust. Also lots and lots of revenge and angst. Its filled with fierceness and feminine bad-assery. And it bring something exciting to the table with a sea filled adventure and uncharted waters.
