A fasinating story following well developed characters in a well built world.

This is a fun, low fantasy, coming of age/ adventure story.
More than anything I love the lively and relatable characters. I always find myself wanting to know more about the characters, getting to know them better all the time.
The story has a slightly slow but steady pace but I feel this highlights the ultimate climax at the end of the book.
I'll be waiting impatiently for the rest of the books in the series as I did for this one to be published.
I would say that this book is an enjoyable read i

I began reading Captain Black Shadow expecting a pirate-filled, fantasy-adventure novel about a boy finding his place in the world. And it certainly delivered on that front! But it also delivered an enormously diverse group of characters, whose backgrounds, story-arcs and individual characterisations are not only interesting, but very real too - and often evoked equally real emotions from me.

These wonderful characters, set against the backdrop of a world which also felt incredibly real and flesh

The book was great.
I was intrigued until the end and now I can't wait to read the next one!
I'm pretty sure that Janina Franck will go far.

Once upon a time, Janina was born in the Black Forest in Germany. Growing up there, she shared a room with many of her bookish friends, and by that, shall we say, they were the paper and ink kind. Her imagination spurred by her environment and choice in company, she began writing at a young age.
Later on, she moved to the emerald island of legends and myths, Ireland, where she completed her basic
