Read from April 10 to 18, 2011

Another excellent swashbuckling adventure. I find Wooding's writing style in the Ketty Jay books very easy to read, even when there's a lot of action. (Which I admit I often skip over in books like this.)
The main trio (Frey, Jez and Crake) are well thought out characters, with what I find to be realistic drives and emotions. Their development throughout this book is lovely. It was also interesting to get inside the heads of what I would class as the secondary characters - even the ships' cat. This all adds depth to a well paced and interesting story.
I can't wait for the next installment :)
The only thing about the series that I'm still undecided on is the summary of each chapter at the break. They aren't spoilers as such, but I find them a little distracting.
