I'm a pirate. One with six overprotective fathers for a crew. And if I'm telling the honest truth, not just the pirate truth, having so many fathers is working pretty well for me so far.
When I'm caught eavesdropping on the pirates of Malice, they retaliate with violence, and my fathers beco ...more
Maybe not this particular instalment; it's packed with humour and action, but not even the slightest bit of romance. Even still, it absolutely hooked me. This is the series I wanted Tricia Levenseller's Daughter of the Pirate King to be.
We have Ebba-Viva Fairisles, who - thank the Lord - is a dark-skinned, dreadlocked pirate girl with bucketloads of sass and vinegar. She's totally opposed to romance, so I do understand why there wasn't any in this inst ...more
Low key disappointed with this one.
I mean don’t get me wrong I enjoyed it but not as much as I was expecting to, which is sad since I absolutely love Kelly St Clare’s books! Still, I’m not giving up on this series, and I’m actually really excited to see how everything will com ...more
What a great book this was! Full of pirate adventures and mythological creatures. Although, Kelly St. Clare dropped the ball on Charybdis.
Excellent storytelling, and a page turner. I can't wait to read more books by Kelly St. Clare....more
Ever since I've read Tainted Accords Series, I'm at Kelly's mercy. Her stories blow my mind.
Ebba-Viva Fairisles: Immortal Plunder is a well written pirate adventure. The storyline plunges you into one adventure after another.
I highly recommend this book about a fierce girl who ...more
This book was absolutely amazing! I didn't expect to love it as much as I did. I'm sucker for YA fantasy books with pirates and sea adventures, and this book has everything. It is a hidden gem and I'm so glad that it caught on my radar cause I would've definitely missed it. It had all that piratey feel to it. The characters, the plot, the adventure, the magic, the world, everything was well written. At first, I had struggled with the writi ...more
Next...I read this while waiting for a hurricane to hit and then leave my town (I wasn’t there but my husband was, so saying I was stressed is an understatement**). I *really* needed something to distract me - and God bless Ms. St. Clare because this did the trick!
Ebba-Viva is an intriguing pirate, in a world that brings surprise upon surprise, and PLENTY of mysteries. The dichotomies in this story are ones Ebba-Viva has glibly, purposefully ignored - ...more
Ebba and her 5 dads are pirates on a small ship the Felicity. Ebba is a super proud character, its almost a fault, but you could tell from the reading she really loves and is passionate about the sea and her life as a pirate. Pirates in her world have been hunted to near extin ...more
There's so much I appreciate about this story. Firstly, that it's a pirate story, but it stands as its very own version of one. It sails familiar territory, but in a very unfamiliar way, and that was refreshingly une ...more
Actually around 3.75
If you're a fan of Kelly St. Clare, you know all her books contain epic fantasy, strong and good main characters who struggle to defy their moral compasses, and a swoony romance. Immortal Plunder is NOT that at all. So fresh, so fine!
Ebba-Viva (Ebba for short), is everything Ryn, Lina, and Romy are not. She is entirely an anti-hero, a pirate who desperately yearns for b ...more
Once you get past that there is a different language (pirate), that one girl has many fathers and is not a girl, but a pirate, this book gets really interesting! Like in all Kellys books the characters are engaging and have room for growth and transformation. It is a funny book, full of mythical adventures. Sure to have a good chin wiggle with all the other fans! I recommend to give it a try, even if pirates aren't yo ...more
As soon as I heard about this series I was excited to read it. It just sounded so good and that cover only made me more excited for this book, because it's so pretty and it fits the story well too. While I haven't read many books with pirates and don't have much to compare it with, this is exactly what a pirate book should be like in my opinion. It has pirates, action, adventure, treasure, lots of sea, life on a ship ...more
First off, you have Ebba-Viva. She is a person of color. Secondly, she defines herself as a pirate and not a women thank you very much as the pirate part is what she find important. Then she has six dads. Last is her outlook. When most typical heroines face some sort of traumatic event tend to go a couple of ways they either grow up fast or they go down the angst, emo and sometimes self des ...more
I read this because I love Kelly St Clare and reading anything she writes is a must but wasn’t crazy excited about it being a pirate book. I didn’t think it was going to be a favourite maybe just an enjoyable read.
I was COMPLETELY wrong I LOVED it, I loved Ebba and I’m now a diehard pirate lover!!!
First thing I have to say is it’s so funny. I thought the only author that could make me laugh this much was Ilona Andrews ...more
I am writing this review because I genuinely believe that everyone should give this book a chance. It was positively spectacular. Seriously. Read it asap.
Now, I've read a lot of pirate books in my time (because you know... pirates!) to the point where the genre was getting old and predictable. Writers would take the same plot and just switch out location ...more
Kelly St. Clare seemlessly weaves together nautical mythology with her unmistakable talented writing style.
Immortal Plunder delivers all expectations of a pirate novel--and then some.
The crew of Felicity is a rich blend of traditional pirates blended with fresh humor. You fall in love with Ebba-Viva's 6 fathers within minutes of opening the book. It's clear from the get go that their daughter Ebba-Viva is the center of their ...more
I love Ebba-viva. She is a pirate girl through and through. Strong, brave, full of adventure and smart! And yet she has a childishness about her that any real teenager would have!
Her fathers are all so diverse, funny, lovable and adore their girl.
I have a lot of theories about the other characters, that I cannot wait to see proven or disproven. 😁
I feel like I could read about these characters forever and I cannot wait for the next instalment ...more
I found myself grinning while reading the pirate lingo and happy it didn't distract or become obnoxious, but flowed nicely. As with her other books, I enjoy the writing style and found myself becoming easily ensnared in the story.
And it's a fun story! The lead character is willfully naive and brave. She is so innocent it's enduring. She is right on ...more
I absolutely, unequivocally, LOVED this book. Pirates and all the dads and so much going on and magic and... wow. Kelly St Clare is now officially one of my favourite authors. I've loved the books I've read of hers in the past but this one sealed the deal.
Ebba is a nice take on a heroine and I liked the touches of innocence to her. Such an endearing quality and one that invited her into my heart which t ...more
Books have always been magical and mysterious to her. One day she decided to start unravelling this mystery and began writing.
The Tainted Accords was her debut series. The After Trilogy is now available.
A New Zealander in origin and in heart, Kelly currently resides in Australia with her ...more
