Publisher's Summary

In a world of arrogant nobles and their punishing laws, Georgina will be hanged if anyone discovers she is a spy. But when the wicked prince proposes marriage, Georgina must accept. Refusing would expose the secrets she has delivered to a hidden resistance and forfeit her life. With her wedding day looming ever closer, salvation comes from an unlikely source.

Pirate Captain Cinder is a terror on the open sea, striking fear into hearts wherever she sails. Now, she has a new target. The vulnerable Princess Georgina should be an easy mark in Cinder’s kidnapping plot. But the legend of Captain Cinder is more intertwined with Georgina’s own history than either of them expect.

Treacherous storms. A mysterious pirate king. The prince’s unrelenting pursuit. Georgina and Cinder can only escape by following the uncharted course of their hearts. But just as a future together is within their grasp, Cinder’s past threatens to drag them both to the deep.

Not a Lesbian Love Story


I don't know if the author wrote the story this way on purpose, but the main character "George" Georgina, suffers from Schizophrenia and Borderline Personality Disorder. It is not stated outright, but you piece it together through her actions and thoughts.

She has Delusions of Grandeur. She believes she is an all-important "Spy" for the rebellion.
Where in reality, she goes to a dress shop where someone puts a note into her dress. Then she goes to a printer's shop, where the printer takes the message from her dress. For one, she never learned to read growing up because it was "Fluff." She never cared to learn. And she believes she is walking the line between right and wrong while fearing being put to death if ever caught. That would be like the postal worker that delivers the mail to the CIA, believing themselves a "Spy."

Unable to read, all of the messages are read to her only because she is curious about what they say. She has derived an extreme hatred of the prince from what she has heard from other people. When we meet her brother, who is a complete and utterly terrible person, I thought I had a good idea of what the prince would be like, and I was not looking forward to her meeting him.

But after she meets him, during their first two days together, we see that he is considerate, caring, attentive to her desires, protective, and understanding. He paints a good picture that his father has given his family a bad reputation among the people. This whole time "George" says to herself, "I need to flee" one second, then "I should stay" the next. She often goes through that in her head because of all she has heard in the "Spy" business.
I think the author made him too pleasant and needed to make him hated by the reader. So, "George" overhears a conversation where he says he will kill her 10-20 yrs after she helps him win the hearts of his people.

That makes her decide wholeheartedly to flee (maybe). The very next day, people die attempting to help her escape. And in the chaos, she doesn't want to be taken away from him. Welcome to her Borderline Personality Disorder, which is apparent throughout the rest of the story. Where she will love someone romantically one moment, then a few moments later have hatred for them.

I am not a psychologist, but I had to determine what kind of disorders this character suffers.
Basics of Schizophrenia;
Delusions: "I'm a Spymaster," she tells herself.
Disorganized Thinking: She wants to be free but doesn't understand people are doing everything they can to bring her back, and those that freed her are willing to do anything to keep her free. At one point, the pirates ask her to choose. You can go back to the prince, OR you can stay with us, but we will have to kill those who are about to try to kill us. She answers with indecision.
Lack of Motivation: She has desires in her head but doesn't act on them.
Sleep patterns: Out of the two weeks you are with this character, she sleeps maybe 4-5 nights.
Low sex drive: She had never been with a man nor had any desire. (understandable, this is supposed to be a Lesbian Love Story) But she also had only shown a slight fluttering for any females going back to when she was 12yrs old.

Anyone that says this is a story about swashbuckling lesbian pirates is wrong.
Uncharted is not a Lesbian Love Story but a story of a mentally ill young woman who may actually come out on top in the end OR collapse under her neurosis.

I am not saying you should or should not listen to this tale, but do not go into it thinking it is an adventurous, fun, passionate, sexy, lesbian love story.

Perfection!

Uncharted was so beautifully crafted that I struggle to find the right words to convey how happy this book made me. Emily Woo Zeller’s narration was nothing short of amazing. *Chef’s kiss* Perfection! I’m just gonna wrap my feels around me like a blanket.

Welcome aboard the Crimson Siren!

Uncharted is full of twisty intrigue and swashbuckling adventure. Lady George is a smart and strong protagonist, but even she will be faced with the challenge of who's really on her side. Add a bit of romance, and it's the perfect book for fans of pirate stories. Suitable for older teens, this book also has representation of multiple lgtbq+ characters, including a non-binary main character. The narrator does an excellent job!

Better in audio!

I read this book when it first came out and loved it. I really didn’t think it was going to get any better but listening to it blew me away. The different character voices really came to life and I forgot that I was listening to one narrator, she did such a great job.
The story itself is amazing but the narrating made it even better!

Amazing listen!

This is such an amazing story. I just love Georgina and Cinder's slow burn romance. Right fron the first line I was hooked. This is a heartwarming, action packed story that had me on the edge of my seat. Alli Temple just did an amazing job in pulling me into the story. Then Emily Woo Zeller did such an amazing job with the narration. I love how each of the voices were done and it just made this story even better. Absolutely amazing story!

Very Enjoyable

Uncharted is a slow burn, angsty, action packed, intense at times, friends to lovers, second chance story about Georgina, (George) and her Pirate Captain. This is an enjoyable book with strong women who can take care of themselves, a lost childhood friend, amazing side characters, and a love that knows no bounds. There is amazing world building with twists and turns. Just when I think someone is the enemy they turn out to be an ally, you just aren't sure who you can trust. I loved all the flashbacks. They really helped in understanding why certain things happened the way they did. I don't normally enjoy FF romance, but I enjoyed this book and definitely recommend it.
Narrator Emily Woo Zeller does a fabulous job. She really makes the story come alive.

Terrific!

This is a terrific story that quickly drew me and kept me on the edge of my seat in anticipation. The story is fast paced with plenty of action and adventure. The characters are intriguing, strong, and grow throughout the story. I really don't want to say too much for fear of giving something away. The narrator does a great job of bringing the characters and story to life. This is a great story that is well worth listening to.

Ok, disliked main character

The performance was very good- great range of voices for characters.

My biggest issue was the main character - very manipulative, self absorbed and likes to play the victim card a lot.

Would have liked more in depth story and development of Cinder the pirate captain.

Absolutely wonderful!

I absolutely loved this book. Couldn’t put it down. This was just the type of book I wanted when I was younger when Pirates of the Caribbean came out. Well fleshed out characters, good amount of tension without being overdone, and heartwarming moments of lesbian romance (while not being explicit!). I’m generally not a fan of first person narrative, but I forgot this was in first person pretty quickly as it works great. I will definitely be following this author and would love to see more of her works. It’s nice to have some non-spicy lesbian romance.

A dark but exciting fantasy pirate story

George is a wonderful character, a young woman whose fear won’t stop her from doing what’s right, at any cost. Captain Cinder is not what or who she expects at all and even though her true identity is revealed pretty early in the story, I don’t want to say too much. I’ll just say I liked her a lot too, I liked the complexity, the broken soul, the will to survive.

They’re surrounded by characters I came to love, such as George’s maid Rosie, Ender the giant pirate, Maro the non-binary first mate; and face villains I loved to hate: the prince, George’s brother, at least one other I can’t write about without spoiling.

When I think pirates, I think adventures, and I wasn’t disappointed on that front either. The pace is fast, there’s always something happening, usually ominous. There’s some violence, “largely of a piratical nature”, as the author warns (there are more detailed warnings on her website). The story is darker than I expected, and I probably liked it even more because of that.

I have very minor complaints about Emily Woo Zeller’s narration. George’s voice sounds a tad too old at times but the voices are overall really good. The tone is overly dramatic here and there. The drama is already in the words and doesn’t need to be overstated, especially at the end of chapters. Other than that, the pace is right and the characters really come to life.

As I wrote in my review for the book, there can never be enough lesbian pirates stories, and this one is well worth your time. I don’t know whether the author plans to give us more of these characters’ voyages but I certainly hope so.

Song brought to life

One of my favorite Holly Near songs has always been Imagine My Surprise. It talks about discovering women in unexpected places doing unexpected things - one of which is being pirates. Here, we have that wonderful idea brought to life in Captain Cinder and even better we get Georgina, the spy for her to love. The story is full of twists and turns as Georgina tries to stay alive and continue her missions and as you would expect, Cinder has quite a few secrets herself. Emily Woo Zeller gives us these strong women as fully three dimensional characters in a performance full of fire and tenderness. An amazing addition to my titles I will re-listen to often.

Enchanting and engaging

I absolutely loved this twist on pirate romance.
Two beautiful, complex and independently strong women who find the perfect foil to themselves in each other.
Fanciful, full of snarky banter along with plenty of swashbuckling adventures and danger on the high seas.
Wonderful narration.

This is No Damsel in Distress

charted is a standalone action-adventure romance between two incredibly strong and courageous women: one is a princess forced to marry a man she despise, the other is a pirate captain with deep secrets. The romance is a slowburn, but burn it does with a ferociousness that finally bursts into flames in the later half of the book. However, there is very little on page sex, although there is intimate and passionate moments.

Georgina, called George, is a noblewoman who is betrothed against her will to the kingdom’s prince and next in line to throne. The prince while charming, has destroyed his country: people are starving and desperate with little hope. Even in such desolate environments, some of the people have secretly banded together to create rebel force to oppose the prince in any means they can. George has been assisting this rebellion, but her engagement to the prince has put everything at risk. Enter Cinders, the dangerous pirate captain who kidnaps George and saves her from a menacing fate.

Uncharted has interesting worldbuilding – it is set within an alternate world that has renaissance and Victorian reverberations. Although there is no mention of magic or other fantastical elements, the book feels like a fantasy epic, and I could see there being more books set within this world. In fact, although the book ended with a HEA for George and Cinders, I am very curious to see what happens to the Redmere nation and pirating world now that some key players have been eliminated.

I thought George, who’s POV the book is told from, was an interesting and complex character. I appreciate her fire and conviction, even when I found her naïve and slightly annoying at times. As a noblewoman, she had been sheltered from real suffering, even though she was aware it happened in the world. But before her betrothal and kidnapping, George never had to make truly impossibly difficult decisions. She had to change and grow in order to survive, and I think the author did that growth in a natural manner. The action and suspense was well done, and it kept the plot moving forward at a fast pace. I was not blown away by the romantic elements of the book – George and Cinders relationship seemed to be a secondary element, and the adventure/character growth seemed more paramount. This wasn’t a bad thing, but I think I went into this book expecting more romance and relationship building. The romance and relationship building that occurred near the later half of the book was very well done, and it was easy to see that George and Cinders truly loved each other.

The audiobook was narrated by Emily Woo Zeller who did a fantastic job. Emily’s voice was expressive and smooth, which made for a wonderful listening experience. I could easily differentiate between all the characters, and never felt lost in the narrative. This, along with a well done audiobook production, made for a great book.

Pirates, oh my!

If you're wanting a story that will pull you in from the first page, Georgina and Cinder's story is it! This story is filled with so much that leaves you absolutely enthralled and ignoring everything else to live their story. The narration brings this story to a whole new level of amazing.

Epic!

This is the first book I have ever read narrated by Ms Zeller, and I enjoyed a lot her melodic voice, acting skills and the fantastic way she managed the voice of Georgina and Cinder. Ms Temple made a wonderful job with the ebook and its truly epic story, and now the beautiful narration of Ms Zeller is the cherry on top. The plot is captivating, full of heartwarming moments, in between dangerous adventures and the storyline caught me since the beginning to the very last page. This is an exceptional book and I can't wait to read more books written by the author.
