I found the lapses into 3 person narrative were a bit jarring and disrupted the flow of the story and the ending was very abrupt. Beyond that, however, I enjoyed the story and, like the other reviewers, I am looking forward to finding out what happens next.
Wow! A great story and an amazing calibre of work from a teen author. My only critique to to watch your editing (ie: Lars instead of Lara) and to keep track of details like how many babies your characters are pregnant with. With a bit of time and development, I expect we will see great things from this author.
A well thought out and written story with some unique twists! I really enjoyed this book and I have already downloaded the rest of the series. Having said that, however, I found the narrative to lack differentiation of personality between the different perspectives. I found it difficult at times to determine whose perspective I was reading.
Agree with Desertphile, this author has no idea what he is talking about. The term atheist presupposes the existence of god(s) the same way the term 'bigfoot hunter' presupposes the existence of bigfoot -- by which it does not. It is simply the position statement that one finds no compelling evidence for the existence of a deity.
I really enjoyed reading this début novel from Nikki Nelson! A great pace, thrilling storyline, and wonderful character development kept me turning pages until the end.
I love reading stories with strong female lead characters and Katy Dare, the title character for this series, certainly fits that description. While she is not the captain of the crew on the water, her take charge personality and quick thinking helps rally the crew and enable them to rescue themselves from The Pirate's clutches.
I look forward to reading what Katy Dare and the All Girl Crew do next
