    This is the feminist pirate story that I’ve been waiting for all my life, with badass women who promote sisterhood and fight with each and every muscle of their bodies!Do you even know how hard it is to find a good pirate story without ridiculousness, misogynistic pirates who think of women as property and bad pirate jokes?It’s hard, man, it’s really hard. There’s The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue that a lot of people seem to lo...

    ARC provided by Penguin in exchange for an honest review. “Never underestimate the girls of this world” And the award for best prologue of 2018 goes to Seafire! Seriously this prologue was beyond words amazing. It not only made me feel every single emotion under the sun, but it had me on the edge of my seat for the entire twenty pages. Perfection, seriously perfection. And such a wonderful way to start this amazing story! I hate comparing b...

    4 1/2I really enjoyed this! More so than I thought I would, honestly!! It has awesome, female pirates who root for each other and not tear each other down!I thought the plot moved along nicely as well. The only thing I didn't love was the romance, I thought this book could have gone completely without it.Overall would def. recommend this book!

    Something that not everyone may know is that I have a huge pirate fetish, always have and always will. When seeing Seafire by Natalie C. Parker the first time I knew this was a must read, a whole trilogy of [email protected] female pirates?? I couldn’t get a copy fast enough and thankfully I did because wow, this was amazing!They story begins a few years in the past as Caledonia Styx and her friend are sent by Caledonia’s mother to shore to search for f...

    "Never underestimate the girls of this world."I mean, it is a girls-only pirate ship. The level of badassery is sky-high. Of course, I wanted to read it.Seafire was a thrilling and highly suspenseful novel. The sea is ruled by Aric Athair, a ruthless man who takes children from their families, drugs them with Silt in order to make them compliant, and kills everyone who stands in his way. This is how Caledonia Styx lost her family. Four years late...

    RELEASED TODAY!!!**ARC provided by Penguin Teen and Razorbill for my honest review!**(PS, took the coding from my blog since I posted there first and that's why it looks so much different than usual) “Take your ship, take your crew, and prove to that man that he has not quelled all of us. Prove that there is a fire on these seas he cannot contain.” So vivid in detail, you can practically taste the salt from the sea. So engrossing, it’s as...

    "Remember, when they call you girl, they're trying to tell you something. They're trying to tell you that they're more than you, that the body you're in makes you less. But you know, and I know, that you're exactly what you need to be." WHAT TO EXPECT FROM SEAFIRE 🌊 AN EPIC SHOW OF GIRL POWER!Seafire is a feminist read at its core. More than anything, I think this book aims to empower women. It's a riveting story about an all-girl pirate crew,...

    Honestly, the only disappointing part of this book was the fact that I expected so much more gayness. (There is a sapphic side couple, though!) And I love it. (I thought this would be a sapphic pirate book though.) Also look at me finally writing a review on Goodreads!! Is this a milestone or whatAnyways, this book is set in a world where this guy, Aric, runs entire fleets of men called Bullets and also fleets of women but I forgot what they are ...

    actual rating 3.5 starsI am very picky when it comes to pirate books but I think overall I enjoyed this. It checked off a lot of things I love in books✔all-female crew✔found families✔seeking revenge✔strong friendshipsIt wasn't romance heavy which I liked for a change. It was more focused on the sisterhood between the crew. I do wish this book had been more gay. I went into it being told it is about sapphic pirates and......not really. The...

    Rating ~4.5“Never underestimate the girls of this world.” It’s been a long time since I liked a book enough to finish it in a day. But well, here we are! The book starts off with a prologue that really sets the tone.It is a tale of family, friendship, loyalty, betrayal and the importance of trust. Trust in others and trust in yourself. The Main Cast: Caledonia: Captain of the ship, Caledonia is a girl with something to prove. She harbors a...

    ARC provided by Penguin/Razorbill in exchange for an honest reviewOnce I heard about a book with an entire female pirate crew, I was immediately intrigued. And it totally surprised me — in a good way! Seafire was filled with such a good mix of action, sisterhood, and lovable characters. I really can’t wait to see where this series goes!Seafire truly opens with a bang. I won’t get into the details but it was the perfect way to set the story ...

    4/5 starsBook #1 finished for the BooktubeathonWhile I was excited to get into this book I think I had my expectations way too high and was left a little disappointed at this story (not that it's a bad story it is FAR from being bad). It has so many factors I love like the action and the loyalty that comes with pirate books but I was looking for a little more. I loved getting to see this story through our main character, I loved the all female sh...
