    Well, here we are, you and I. Wandering through internet links and trying to dodge the nasty sites and we stumble onto this story. It's not very expensive, you note, and it's not very long, either. Also, it has pirates. This should be an easy decision, but we know it's not. You're asking the same question as I did, no doubt. "Yes," you are saying to yourself, stroking your chin in the way you do, "pirates are great and all but is it any *good*?" Well, new internet friend, you're in luck because I have an answer for you. I have read this story and it is easily worth two measly dollars. Self-publishing isn't perfect (see below) but it does open the door to some great little deals when you're looking for something like this--a short, fun little story to relax with. The tale itself reads quick. Ms. Lee's style is efficient and strong and constantly progresses forward. Action is well choreographed and clear, making for some entertaining swashbuckling. As the story... More > progresses, the author introduces some extra intrigue to spice up the narrative. I won't discuss the plot directly but, since I know you're wondering, the story both learns from what worked in the Pirates of the Caribbean films to make pirates interesting again and at the same time knows when to leave those films behind. If I have any complaints about the story (and, yes, I admit, there were a few things), they are eclipsed by the fact that the story cost me two whole dollars. I can't speak for everyone but that was not a big risk for me, financially. That's why I bothered to write this review: I took a chance on a new writer and was pleasantly surprised. If there's one problem with self-publishing, it's that there's no gatekeeper to sort out the talented young writers from the ones who want to explore what might have happened between Edward and Jacob if they were left alone in a hotel room. Guinevere Lee's writing is a step above the usual self-pubbed lot, so I encourage you to take the same little chance as me to support a world where we don't have to wade through slash fiction and run-on sentences just to find something new and good.< Less
