I received this book as part of a first-reads giveaway.

I found The Privateer Clause to be a highly entertaining roller-coaster ride of a novel filled with a great deal of action. This action takes place on a cruise ship and in several Caribbean ports of call. The beginning of the novel introduces the reader to the Sea Empress, a luxury cruise ship being enlarged and refurbished, the Seven Seas Company that owns her, and a whole host of interesting characters. We are also introduced to Black and

I really enjoyed this book. It definitely kept my wanting more. There were ups and downs that made you feel like you were on a roller coaster. I loved the detail that was given in the book, it made it easy to follow and understand each character.

This was a book that it was hard to put down. The days that I read it I noticed I was doing only reading and nothing else. This was a well written and I loved the characters of this book.

I look forward to more books from KEN. Great BOOk...

I give this zero stars. I liked the concept, but I had to stop reading because the writing was so poor. It seemed to be written by a 12-year-old with no editing whatsoever. Verb tenses didn't match and it was full of misspellings and typos. It jumped all around and was basically a hot mess. The description of life on a cruise ship wasn't even that accurate, to which I can attest as a cruise veteran. I really wanted to follow the story, but I just couldn't take any more.

Love the Privateer Clause; the story is packed with plenty of action, twists and turns. The descriptions of the cruise and ports had me believing I was on the cruise right along with the characters. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking for an action- packed adventure.
Kirsten Dillard
I really enjoyed this book. It definately kept my interest. Although, at times it seemed a bit too detailed, it set the stage for what was to come. Great book - will definately read more from this author!
Zoe
Great action, great characters! Hard to put down and you just hate that it has to end.
Doris Bright
Hard to put down. Great action and suspense. Fun to read.

I won this book from the Goodreads giveaways. I saw all the positive reviews and I must wonder what book they read.

I must give this book zero stars because I could not finish it. I really tried to give it a fair shot but after 50 pages I could not take any more. I hate writing a bad review but this book should have had a lot more work before being released.

The sentence structure is bad. I had to read sentences two and three times to try to figure out what the author was trying to say. A novel sh

Good story, but...

Sorry, I just can't tolerate profanity, I.e. misuse of God's name. An otherwise neat read was ruined for me. Another Amazon review poster chided me once for having that opinion, saying it's "just language." Maybe...but the folks I hang with don't use profanity and I don't need to subject myself to it.

Narrative

I choose this rating because I found this book strange. It was a very weird story with non inspiring characters. Put downs of Americans unnecessary in the story. Just did not like it
Candy
I see people having positive comments on this book, I however have no idea why. It is poorly written, and because of that I couldn't even get past the first chapter. My 12 year old can write better. I give this book zero stars and recommend people pass on it.
