Karen Perkins does it again!

This is the first book in the Valkerie series I’ve read, and right from the beginning I was drawn into the world of English aristocract turned privateer, Henry Shape. The descriptive detail in the writing had me feeling as if I were standing right along side Henry as he made his way in his new life as a privateer after the death of his father and failing family finances. It had me anxious to continue the voyage and read more from this excellent writer. A must read for

I defy you not to enjoy this splendid book. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments as Sharpe struggles to learn how to survive on board a pirate ship. Add to that a tender love story and some exciting sea battles and you have all the ingredients for a good read. The action is fast-paced, there are plenty of interesting characters and you will be drawn into this fascinating world. Help yourself to a large, steaming bowl of turtle stew and get stuck in!

Note: Review is for the entire Valkyrie Series

Well written historical fiction should cause the reader to wonder what really happened - to ask what in the story is fact and what is not. If the story is well executed it should be told without anachronism or other annoying flaws, accurately depicting the period in question. Ultimately it should be the kind of story that leaves the reader thinking that if things didn't happen exactly this way, perhaps they should have. Karen Perkins has delivered su

When I read book 1 of Karen Perkins' Valkyrie series, An Ill Wind, I cringed. The terror and darkness involved in that novella was so intense, I couldn't help but wish for brighter days for Gabriella and pray that the end of that book would lead her there.

As I read book 2, Dead Reckoning, I couldn't help but become completely entranced by the amount of detail Perkins places within her world, making the entire pirating (or privateering, depending on who you talk to) art become completely alive.

The Valkyrie Series comes highly recommended for those who enjoy historical reading. It is a romance but not erotica. I would rate this series as 5 star.

I really enjoyed these stories. One big plus was the period dialogue. The language used is one you can imagine pirates of olden days in the Caribbean might have used. From start to finish, these are stories the reader will find difficult to put down as the story telling is fast paced and leaves the reader wondering what happens next. The love st

The pirate with the heart of gold.

This third book in the Valkyrie series is told through the perspective of Henry Sharpe, the mysterious one-eyed pirate who has secretly helped Gabriella and other women escape the abusive attentions of his bosses Van Ecken and Hornigold. Finally we learn the truth of Sharpe’s painful past and what roads led such a man to become a pirate. There is also a great plot twist that I will not give away. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the first three Valkyrie books a

Best of the series

This is the backstory if Sharpe in the Valkerie series, and probably the best yet. It explains the rather complicated man who is a secondary character in the first two books. I understand his motivations much better now. I find I like him as much as Leo, and am looking forward to the next book in the series. I would recommend the series as written thus far. There is a lot if action and some very complicated situations. This is definitely a "pirate" series, which I love this gen
