    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 ...

    Wow, what a ride! This crew of fierce ladies is what I've been wanting in a sea adventure! The friendships, the stakes and the twists were all so satisfying and well-told. I'm DESPERATE for more with that ending. What are you doing to me, Natalie C. Parker?!A must-read fantasy adventure

    Seafire is a really, good, strong start to this series. The story started out with a "bang". The main protagonist, Caledonia is a strong leader. Not just because of her being the captain of her own ship but because she displays it with her actions and emotions as well. I loved that this book featured an all female ship crew. Usually, the stories feature male captains. Caledonia shows that females can be just as ruthless and capable of managing th...

    I simply could not resist reading this gorgeous book when I had the chance to read and review it early. When I got it in the mail, I had to start it right away. And I'm glad I did so. Because Seafire was an amazing book. Not perfect, but so awesome. The ending is pretty rude, however. Very glad that this series will be a trilogy.Yet how I'm going to manage waiting for the next two books I do not know. The ending isn't that bad, but oh, how I need...

    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...

    This book about a ship full of fierce, brave, loyal women ready to take on any battle on the high seas, is definitely an adventure with a strong girl-power message (as promised). Captain Caledonia Styx takes charge of the ship Mors Navis after losing her family to a corrupt and vicious warlord, Aric Athair, and his fleet of ships who he fills with ‘Bullets’, boys and men who he doses up with the drug Silt. Caledonia vows to avenge her loss, a...

    4.5 stars for this empowering and ferocious fantasyThis was such a fierce, empowering read! Seafire will satisfy all your feminist dreams as we follow Captain Caledonia and her crew of women to defeat an evil dictator who has killed off many a person to fuel his own path of conquering the seas - people including Caledonia’s family. I came into it looking for a stunning crew of sisters whose bonds cannot be broken, and that’s exactly what I go...
  • Mary Nguyen (fox & wit)
    I absolutely love Caledonia. When her loved ones are in danger or captured she doesn’t tear the world apart to get them back. She doesn’t irrationally explode and let her emotions carry her actions. She fights her instincts to go after and retrieve her loved ones and she makes that hard decision because she has over 50 girls who rely on her as their Captain. She won’t endanger the lives of everyone for the life of one no matter how deeply s...

    Natalie C. Parker's SEAFIRE is girl power in every sense of the phrase. Captain Caledonia Styx and her crew are brutal, tough, loyal, loving, dedicated, battle-worn sisters of the chosen kind. They are heroes trying to dismantle the empire of a self-made king and they do it with such confidence and swagger because the details are never glossed over. During every battle, fight, strategy session and escape, Parker's writing puts you right there, wi...

    I received an Advance Reader's Copy through Penguin's First to Read program in exchange for an honest review.---THIIIS is the kind of book that my 12-year old self needed, especially during that little cusp where you're still a little child but are starting to gain conscience of all the crappy demands, contradictions and double standards that society slaps upon women. One of those is this asinine need for competition that we're taught to have aga...

    3.5 stars. As a general rule, I'm not a fan of pirate stories. I've never watched the Pirates of the Caribbean movies (gasp!), and I usually lose interest whenever I see a book pitched as anything "pirate"-esque. It's just not a sub-genre that calls to me. Seafire, however, totally caught me off guard. I started it late at night and found, to my dawning horror, that I could not put it down. Natalie C. Parker's writing is vivid and absolutely capt...

    THIS REVIEW & MORE → Paws and Paperbacks4.5 stars ✨ARC provided by the publisher.This year, we are blessed with so many female seafaring books, and this might have been one of my favorites. A crew of fierce, loyal women determined to take down a dangerous warlord? Uh, YES PLEASE. Seafire was everything I could have hoped for, and more.One of the things that appealed to be about this book was the inclusion of more modern technology and weaponr...

    The full review + more can be found at The Book Bratz Your computer/phone screen will literally do nothing for Seafire's cover. If you think the digital version is stunning wait until you actually have this book in your hands. It is magnificent. Getting into my review though .... I think this is going to be the book of 2018 that I am going to be a black sheep on. Don't get me wrong, I did like Seafire. I loved the message of sisterhood and how fa...

    This book was stupendous! Exciting and well paced with great writing and well developed characters! It made my heart race, it made my heart sing, it made me wish I could join Captain Caledonia’s crew. Female friendships make the heart of this book, and it was so refreshing to read a YA book that wasn’t focused on romance (though there’s a delicious shiver in there at some point ;) but instead fully focused on action and camaraderie. It remi...

    A girl loses her family and becomes captain of her own ship exclusively manned by girls and is intent on causing trouble for the cruel and oppressive ruling regime that killed her family. This was so much fun! I got it at YA summer preview event at the local bookstore. It doesn't come out until late next month. I gave it to my 15-year-old to read. I don't know if he will because it features a cast of girls *eyeroll*, but maybe.
