entangling adventure

I really enjoyed reading this book. The story line was entangling and I enjoyed the adventure. Well written. I will be looking for more books by this author.

A Favorite

This is one of my favorite books! I recommend it to all my friends. She seems to like writting about Robin Hood like heroines, as one of her other books, "Sovay," has a similar main character.


This is one of my favorite books of all time. I read it all the time. I must have read it 12 times. Its so awesome!

Great Read

A great read. It will alter your view of pirates. Nancy is one of those Robin Hood like heroines that you'd love to have as your best friend.
