A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars

This is a genteel, romanticized version of pirates and pirate ships. Gael gets to see the blood and injuries of pirate attacks, and he suffers the lack of privacy that can only come from being on a ship of two hundred people, but he (and we) are spared the unpleasant parts of the story. There’s no mention of foul food or rough seas or even much detail about the life of a pirate. Gael is an optimist and we get to see the story through his rose-tinted glasses.

Let me say right away: I genuinely enjoyed this novel. Less a fantasy romance than a nicely paced and gripping adventure-and-romance tale, it is set in an imaginary world that strikes as fairly familiar.

Foreign shores, sea battles, a sophisticated one-eyed elf, a naive young doctor with family issues, and a lemur! It was a fun read (mixed with angst at times), in the elegant traditions of pirate fiction. And although it's a M/M story, the scene when Rikko' meets Queen Amata is most noteworthy :)

4.5 stars, rounded up for excellent voice.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable high seas tale with one of the most unique MCs I've read in a while (Rikko'). Now, during a formulative phase I saw Orlando Bloom as Legolas, which imprinted upon me an appreciation for blond elves, but Rikko' was a more interesting character. He's a delightful bundle of contradictions. Plus, his internal thoughts are very entertaining, and I do so enjoy when a character's voice draws me in.
