Much Ado About Pirates (Never Lost – 1) by Falcon Storm
A mysterious castaway…
A deluge of strange sorcery…
A warped love triangle…
Captains Hook and Callaghan like you’ve never seen either of them before…
Welcome to Much Ado about Pirates!
When a beautiful castaway called Belle falls from the sky and transforms the decks of the Malendroke into a mystical forest, Quinn and her crew know they are in for a whole new world of trouble. But it is first mate James who proves most at risk, quickly falling head-over-heels under their new passenger’s spell.
Soon the merry crew of the Malendroke find themselves caught in the middle of a feud between warring faerie courts, and James finds himself at odds with a tribe of savage youth who have taken to the forest to escape the persecution of the church. The tribe’s leader—neither male nor female, known only as Pan—is the most savage of all the warring parties and absolutely hell-bent on keeping Belle confined to the forest for eternity.
With fairies, magic, pirates, and more, this new chapter of the Plundered Chronicles shows Quinn and her crew like you’ve never, never seen them before.
I was born in the frozen wasteland of Alaska with the unfortunate stigma of being both a daydreamer and left-handed. Starting from an early age, I’ve filled my life with stories of every sort from my father’s hunting trips to the Holy Trilogy (read: Star Wars). In the fourth grade, I became more interested in telling stories of my own than listening to those of others. Doctors—being doctors—attempted to medicate them out of me, but the best cure has always been a pen, a notebook, and my crazy, unrestrained imagination.
I continue to whittle away at these stories in my endless search for the one that will finally bring me back to reality. All the while, I secretly hope such a story will never come along. I hear “reality” is far too boring.
After escaping the North, I moved to Michigan where I fell in love with (and married) author Emlyn Chand. Together we manage our menagerie of birds and dogs in our lakeside house in suburban Detroit. When I’m not writing or chasing after disobedient curs, I play video games, develop apps and try my hand at any exciting hobby to come my way.
Come follow the madness at the various social media thingys or simply check out my website. And, oh yeah, The Persnickety Princess is my very first book—of presumably many more.
While on the ship Malendroke, James is with a crew that is trying to stop Francis Drake’s ship when a strange girl falls to the deck and turns the ship into a forest. James falls for the girl and calls her Belle. But they are attacked and Captain Grace O’Malley is kidnapped. The crew and Belle venture to her island to rescue Grace. There they meet the fae and cause a war. James also meets a Puca called Pan and has a battle. Belle makes a deal to spare James’ life. James is so in love with Belle that he joins with a group of Lost Boys to rescue Belle.
This is a great start to a new series. I love how you learn an alternative beginning to the Peter Pan story that I always see. You learn of how the fae can fit into the Peter Pan story and James’ origins. You can also figure out where Belle fits in.
I loved this story and can’t wait to see where Falcon Storm takes it next. If you are looking for great fantasy stories, I strongly recommend checking out Falcon Storm’s books. You will not be disappointed.
I received Much Ado About Pirates from Candid Book Reviews for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
