This gleefully swashbuckling and genuinely funny snark-fest will have fans of all things pirate digging in with relish. Vengeance of the Pirate Queen certainly has its share of throat slitting and running through with swords, but it's more than balanced by high-seas adventure, romance, and saving the world from an immortal, power-hungry dictator. Set in the same world as Levensetter's Daughter duology, this story pivots to focus on Sorinda. Favorite characters return, and colorful new ones are introduced. The ending is satisfying while leaving plenty of room for further pirate adventures.
