“Never underestimate the girls of this world.”
🌟 Currently there are only 6 people who rated this 1 star and I am one of those people! I feel bad about it but I just can’t. I gave this many chances and I decided finally that it is just not for me.
🌟 The day this book was released I was excited for it but then I wasn’t in the mood to read it so I finished Mirage and City of Ghosts and a couple of days later, I am in the mood again to read this so I picked it up immediately.
🌟 I also hadn’t much luck with mermaids and Pirate stories this year (And there were many), I thought that this was going to save the day but it looks like I am not into the whole pirate thing. I really love the cover and a really wanted to love the book too.
🌟 My problem was with the writing style, I did not like it. I went into this and felt sleepy after a few chapters. I thought it may be due to studying and I was tired. I put it down and picked it up at a later break where the same thing happened again and again.
I had insomnia that night, and I was flipping in my bed and I decided to read this! I read 2 pages and I slept immediately (I swear this truly happened and not an exaggeration).
🌟 I just couldn’t get into the story, I tried once and twice and thrice and I found a moment or two where I saw a light at the end of the tunnel, where I thought I will finally get into the story, only to lose interest a couple of pages later.
🌟 So I don’t know if the problem was me, or with the writing or with the whole Pirates genre but I gave this many chances and read exactly one-third of it before giving up on it and deciding to DNF. I don’t feel regret or interest in the story after I let it sink in. I do recommend trying the book, if you like it then it is great but if you can’t get into it then you probably won’t. I ended up giving it 1.5 out of 5 stars!
