Publisher's summary

In the year 2513, the only thing higher than the seas is what’s at stake for those who sail them.

Rose was born facing due north, with an inherent perception of cardinal points flowing through her veins. Her uncanny sense of direction earns her a coveted job within the Archipelago Fleet, but it also attracts the attention of Admiral Comita, who sends her on a secret mission deep into pirate territory.

Aboard the mercenary ship, Man o' War, Rose joins a ragtag crew under the command of Miranda, a captain as alluring as she is bloodthirsty. Rose quickly learns that trusting the wrong person could get her killed - and Miranda’s crew have no desire to make anything easy for her.

If Rose is going to survive the mission, she’s going to have to learn to navigate more than ruthless pirates, jealous crewmates, swarms of deadly jellyfish, and a host of other underwater perils. Above all, she’s going to need a strategy to resist Miranda’s magnetic pull.

Excellent

Fast paced, dystopian adventure on the high seas. Pirates, blood, gore, krajen, and bad ass broads.

Read, don’t listen

I loved the book. Lesbian pirates is my absolute favorite genre. The narration, however, nearly killed it for me. The narrator’s inflection suggests she’s never had a conversation with another person before, though I’m sure that’s not true. The near constant upward inflection was so distracting, I nearly returned the book. She sounded like she was reading a children’s book the entire time. The only positive was that each character’s voice was distinct. Perhaps with a little practice she’ll improve.

Enjoyed the story but not the narration

The story itself was pretty good, and I liked the characters. The performance fell short for me, though, as I listened to the audiobook.

A Favorite

Awesome story, characters, and narration! Like others, I wanted more Miranda. I really hope there's a second and third book with these characters in the works. I miss them already!

The narrator reply ruins it

Making all the characters sound ugly doesn’t really work in a romance book. Also this lady clearly has no idea how inflection works. Omg. Like letting your grandma read you smut.

The narrator is really bad but you get used to it

The narrator sounds like she’s never had a conversation with another human before but it gets better as you go on and you start to not notice it. The story is great through!
