Reminded Me of How Much I Miss Ednah's Work
What an excellent tale of mystery, fantasy and the unknown. I'm a huge fan of pirates, and this reminds me so much of a cross between Black Sails and Vikings. Of course she's written a bit about Norse mythology and Vikings, so adding a pirate tale to the plate was welcoming.
Lexi's character is one we can all relate too. All families are dysfunctional to some extent, but she is loyal to her brother and will do whatever it takes to take care of him. Her step-mother just happens to also be included in that equation. Lexi's life if fairing well, as she's taken on a role as a nanny for a wealthy guy and the vacation she's longing for takes a wrong turn when she hears a guy attempt to jump from a window. Enter Storm :)
There were a lot of aha moments and some predictable, but nevertheless, this first installment of the series was pure perfection.
Not only does Walters writing create a unique world with amazing characters, the narration was no doubt the driving factor for my review. Erin Mallon did such a great job and I'm sure the author would have been proud to know that she gave her characters a voice we can appreciate and fall in love with. The direction she went with Storm, who's accent is not one dialect was super sexy. Thanks Erin for giving this series life and giving Ednah Walters fans something to remember her by.

This is definitely *young* adult. She is 18, never had sex, and acts impulsively and irrationally at times. There is no sex in this part 1 book. There is also no romance. No tears. The story overall (fantasy genre) is interesting and kind of unique (but we don't know much yet... only glimpses as to what they are). The narrator is one of the good ones.
The story is about a leader of a people who finds his true mate in the States and takes her home to his island, but she doesn't want to stay and doesn't believe they are mates. She also wants to return home to care for her brother. She tries to find a way off the island to escape home, but finally realizes she cannot. When she comes to this realization, the book ends.
Off to Part 2...
