The pirate crew of the Lady Luck lives by many rules, but chief among them is this: they do not allow men on board. That’s a rule that quartermaster Grace Porter is willing to break when a shipwrecked young nobleman offers her information of an omniscient map, stolen from his warship by an enemy vessel. Until now, the map was only the stuff of legend… but with its help, Grace may finally be able to hunt down the Mordgris, the sea monsters who stole her mother away from her. Unfortunately, some members of her crew have other plans... To find the map and face the Mordgris, Grace will have to confront her past, put the Luck between warring nations, and uncover treachery aboard the ship. And ultimately, her revenge and the destruction of the Mordgris will come at a hefty price: the betrayal of her crew. Grace promised them they wouldn’t regret this. She just isn’t sure that she won’t.
Over Raging TidesFeatured
The seas are plagued by creatures called Mordgris and they're responsible for the disappearance of Grace's mom. This map may be her only hope of finding her mom, but Captain Ilene has no desire to do so. Grace decides to take matters into her own hands, but something in her starts to change.
I love the all-female pirate crew and Leo was intriguing, but I wish we'd learned more about him. Hopefully, that's coming in book two. I like the fantasy element in OVER RAGING TIDES as well. I finished this book in one sitting and look forward to the next one!
Final Verdict: I recommend this book to fans of pirates, fantasy, the sea life, and adventure.
