Book Review: Slave of the Sea by Dawn Dagger

Book Review: Slave of the Sea by Dawn Dagger

Levanine’s life as a slave is insignificant. She has always been property; bound to her owner, content to serve quietly where no one can cause her harm. However, when her master sells her to pay a debt, her false safety is shattered, and she finds herself offered as a sex slave on the continent of Dreanis.

Fearful and hopeless, Levanine expects the worst to happen. Nothing could prepare her to be suddenly swept onto a pirate ship by an infamous captain whose interests are a mystery to her. Forced to think on her feet, the silent girl must overcome a lifetime of servitude to survive on a ship where everything is trying to destroy her.

As sea monsters, mutinies, and ghosts wreak havoc on the ship and its crew, Levanine realizes that she doesn’t have the luxury of simply surviving until they arrive at Avondella, her continent of redemption.

I’m looking forward to significantly growing that number over the next few months, but for now I’m happy to focus on the lovely book that is The Traveler.

First off, I was immediately struck by how atmospheric Continue reading “Book Review: The Traveler by E.B. Dawson”

Book Review: Victory by Naomi Paasch

Book Review: Victory by Naomi Paasch

I was nervous about this book, going in. A friend of the author asked if I’d read and review it, which I was totally cool with because I love helping out fellow indie authors, but I wasn’t super impressed with the blurb or the cover when I checked out the Amazon page. (A note: I received a free copy to review.) However, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this book.

Victory is told in two parts alongside each other. One is the story of an author Continue reading “Book Review: Victory by Naomi Paasch”
