Captain Arama Dzornaea thought she was just supposed to transport Crown Prince Vistaren Doth'Mara to meet his contracted bride. As the king's top privateer, she thinks she can handle anything. What Arama doesn't anticipate is storms out of season, an unruly stormwitch, and a strange witchery echo that puts Arama, her ship the Dawn Star, and everyone aboard smack in the ...more

Super cute, and exciting, and so damn intriguing. I LOVE Arama and Lo and I need them to be H.E.A. There's a gay main character, which is awesome. It's set on A SHIP which is my favourite setting of all the settings. Plus it has a really unique sea creature. And it's a quick read. And it's free!! (as of 05.06.16) Excited to read more books!

Pirates and princes and witches and stormsingers--oh, my! This charming short story/novella is a compelling tale of its own and a wonderful introduction to a series that I can't wait to read.

Wow! This is such an amazing read. Fast-paced, with a diverse and interesting cast that I immediately connected with, and an intriguing world.

Arama is strong, touch, and competent. She has an air of mystery that made me want to read on about her. Her complicated relationship with Lo has me longing to see them both again, and hoping for a happily ever after between them at some point.

I loved seeing a gay prince, even if he was on his way to an arranged (het) marriage. His commitment to doing wh

Lovely read if rushed

Mind you, I know this is a short story, but something about this tale seemed rushed through. Like there were tons of parts skipped over. Or maybe I just want to read a longer version of it. But the world itself sounded interesting and I'm a sucker for love stories that don't just begin with happily ever after so awesome and lovely read altogether.

A short, fast read about a privateer escorting a prince by sea to meet his arranged bride and an unexpected danger that only the stormwitch aboard can stop. I liked the weather magic quite a bit, but unfortunately most of the page space was taken up by the will-they-won't-they romance between the privateer and the general escorting the prince and the prince's anxiety about meeting his bride and whether she'll understand that he's exclusively attracted to men, neither of which are resolved in ...more

A short novella introducing a world of woman privateers, gay princes forced to marry and unexperienced stormwitches tasked to bring the ship safely through their sea voyage... sounds good, doesn't it? And it makes for good reading as well. S. A. Cain is a talented storyteller; she has a way with words and descriptions. I like the characters she introduces in "Stormsinger", even though about seventy pages don't very much space for intense personality representation. Means, I'll have to go and get ...more

"Whenever that particularly disconcerting [romantic] desire hit her, she went looking for a Strid ship to attack. Blowing things up always made her feel better."

And that's when I decided I would enjoy reading about Captain Arama Dzornaea.

This novelette manages to weave several stories together as Arama, a stormwitch, a young prince, and a singer wrestle individually and together with their conflicting longings. There are hints of a much greater world than we see, which I expect will be explored

Disguised as a fantasy short story, what we get here is an apparently casual snapshot of a short time lapse in the life of four characters plus one creature.

There is nothing particularly new nor original: every detail of setting and characterization has been read several times before and yet the author manages a tight, compelling plot with characters caught in the middle of their own relatable struggles.
The captain, who is by far the most complex one, could have used a little more shading: her r

Really fun (perma-freebie!) novella with an interesting ensemble of characters. The story itself was a bit missing, but I loved the stormwitch/stormsinger/leviathan lore packed into this high seas adventure. Plus bonus gay prince main character, who doesn't like that?

Definitely would like to read more in this series!

Quick, cute freebie but I don't really see it as having a high re-read potential for me. It seemed more like a prequel short than a full, complete story.
