Book Review: Spring/Summer 2008
by Cecelia Martin (Reviewer at Lambda Book Report)

Daring, bold and suspenseful are just a few words to describe the latest novel from Merry Shannon... She follows up The Sword and the Guardian with this heroic and gripping novel set on the high seas...

...Shannon keeps the story moving swiftly along with traumatic plot twists and turns. I will give a brief warning that there are sections of the book that can get quite cruel and violent, however it lends itself to the story. Violet and Ann are great characters and Shannon does a nice job at showcasing their inner lives. Secondary characters are also equally fleshed out; especially Ann's second in command. Overall a great second novel from Merry Shannon.
