Goodreads Excerpt on Ship of Shadows:
Aleja whiles away her days in her family’s dusty tavern in Seville, dreaming of distant lands and believing in the kind of magic that she’s only ever read about in books. After all, she’s always being told that girls can’t be explorers.
But her life is changed forever when adventure comes for her in the form of a fabled vessel called the Ship of Shadows. Crewed by a band of ruthless women, with cabin walls dripping with secrets, the ship has sailed right out of a legend. And it wants Aleja.
Once on board its shadowy deck, she begins to realize that the sea holds more secrets than she ever could have imagined. The crew are desperately seeking something, and their path will take them through treacherous waters and force them to confront nightmare creatures and pitch-dark magic. It will take all of Aleja’s strength and courage to gain the trust of her fellow pirates – and discover what they are risking everything to find.
My Review of Ship of Shadows:
I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a nice getaway, from the usual tropes that have been coming out lately. Aleja wants to be an explorer, but for a female, it is not the normal job that a girl should have. When she finds a ship full of pirates, and female pirates, she is amazed. When she is pulled into the crew, she finds way more than she bargained for. Coupled with the book that she found, she finds more adventure than she ever thought possible – and maybe where she fits in.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun and easy read! Kids will really enjoy reading this book!
