YA Fantasy with Pirates!
Captain Nereyda and her first mate, Brynja, lead a band of pirates as they seek out grand adventures and loot vulnerable merchant ships. However, when they attempt an overly ambitious raid, Nereyda and her crew are captured by Commander Erhan of the Imperial navy and separated. Nereyda is pressed into service aboard a ship to patrol the treacherous waters of the Shattered Sea. Meanwhile, Brynja and the rest of the crew are sent to a life of hellish labor deep in an Imperial mining prison camp.
While serving her sentence, Nereyda is shipwrecked on an unknown island. As she explores it, she stumbles into some ancient ruins and finds…something. Whatever it is, it wakes a part of Nereyda that she had not felt before. Something that could help her free the rest of her crew and return to life on the sea, if only she can learn to control it. Unfortunately, Commander Erhan is also on the island. Nereyda must escape him, get off of the island, and rescue her crew before the commander can stop her and before her crew withers away in the oppressive mines.
Read the first three chapters here:
Storm Raven is a YA pirate novel that is told from multiple perspectives that really bring the story together, and make it better than it could have been with just one perspective. The three perspectives are Captain Nereyda, First Mate Brynja, and Commander Erhan.
They were all very unique and intriguing characters. Nereyda is the Captain of the ship, Storm Raven; and Brynja is her first mate. They are both very strong female characters, who really make this novel stand out. The last perspective, Erhan is after Nereyda and Brynja. I loved that the novel wasn't just from the perspective of the pirates.
I would highly recommend this novel if you are a fan of fantasy, especially pirates, because this book was amazing.
