Natalie C. Parker concocts a thrilling, relatable series opener featuring redheaded 18-year-old sea captain Caledonia Styx, her intrepid all-girl crew, and their struggles against the evil warlord who enslaved and killed their families. Seafire's characters, their internal conflicts, and the frequent surprises as new challenges emerge all add up to an exciting plot with complex ethical issues and a conclusion that sets up the next installment.
