Never Trust a Pirate

Emme is tasked with getting rid of the king, but kings are not an easy target, and this one is bent on purging his lands of pirates. As Emme’s job becomes increasingly dangerous, she learns to survive the pirate way—cunning and merciless—while consoling herself with one fact: she’s just doing what it takes to get home.

But when Emme mistakenly takes out the wrong man, not even the protective pirate captain can save her from the consequences. In a string of betrayals, one thing is certain. You can never trust a pirate.

About the Author

Victoria McCombs is the author of The Storyteller’s Series, and The Royal Rose Chronicles, with hopefully many more to come. She survives on hazelnut coffee, 20-minute naps, and a healthy fear of her deadlines, all while raising three wildlings with her husband in Omaha, Nebraska.


More from Victoria

Pirates are more civilized than I gave them credit for. Did you know the captain didn’t have complete authority over the ship? While researching for the book, I discovered they used a voting system, and the captain followed what the crew wanted. Usually pirate stories depict a strong captain that makes all the decisions, so it was a fun twist to include more of the democracy style of the early pirates into my story. With that, came the fun power struggles as different crew members wanted different things, and they all try to sway the command of the ship. Smaller crew alliances form, friendships are tested, trust broken, and the future of the Royal Rose comes into question as, at times, the greatest threat to them lies within their own crew.

My Review

I enjoyed reading Victoria McCombs first installment from her series, The Royal Rose Chronicles, Oathbound, and was excited to read the next book, Silver Bounty. I thought it was an entertaining book to read. I enjoyed catching up with Emme and taking another journey with her. She is faced with danger and adventure that made want to keep reading. I thought it was a pretty good read that makes me want to read more about Emme’s upcoming ventures.

I am giving Silver Bounty four and a half stars. I believe readers and fans who enjoy reading clean young adult fantasy fiction will definitely want to give this one a read. I am looking forward to reading the next installment from The Royal Rose Chronicles series.

I received a paperback copy of Silver Bounty from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
