As the daughter of the Pirate King, Tilia Swanson has an unusual upbringing learning skills that aren’t often available for women. As the heir apparent for the Kingdom of Crilan, her skills set her apart as she is trained by the best in the land and taught to harness her magic. However, piracy is in her blood, and draws danger to Tilia in the way that treasure draws pirates. Some treasures are more valuable than others. Will this lesson be learned in time or will the betrayal of those around her be her undoing?

I look forward to reading more books by the author. I am sure I will be a repeat reader.

The book was a mix of all elements which I love to read about. There is a spunky heroine with tom boyish attitude, a risk taking hero and an adventurous tale involving many characters. I loved the setting of the tale. I haven't read much about pirates. So it was an interesting read full of amazing feats and an educative look into the lives of pirates. 

Jax totally stole my heart with her action heroine image. No one stood out so much for me , not even the hero. The only part which I didn't like much was the romantic aspect. I felt it was a bit overdone. There was too much kissing going on for me in relative to the tale. I know they are teens but there were too much hormone driven action going on for my taste. 

The author has packed a long story in a short span according to me. About half way through I felt like I had finished a book and had moved on to the sequel. But it was a totally fun book. I enjoyed the tale with its twists and turns. The pacing was just right and the narration in terms of Jax' POV was an important aspect as it kept me apprised of the thoughts and feelings of Jax. 

Overall, it was a cool adventure to go on, with the perception of action on the side of pirates. 

My one line review : A cool adventure with twists and turns and a tinge of mystery.

My rating : 4/5

My reread factor : 3/5
