To be honest, I didn’t read this but listened to it. A tale of pirate curses, missing treasure and murder, it was nonetheless a fairly light read and quite enjoyable. Though it was odd that a convicted criminal would be sentenced to serve a Prince so closely, I’m sure there is more to the story of how Jax came to be Baldair’s man than just those simple facts. Obviously, Jax’s traumatic past will be further discussed in later stories and I am eager to unravel it.
The humorous banter and camaraderie between the characters is, I think, the highlight of this tale (brought into sharper focus by excellent narration). I normally don’t choose pirate stories but this was well-executed and fun. I’d read (or listen to) more of Ms. Kova’s tales.
