This book was a pleasant surprise! I found the download of the book for free on Amazon and I didn't have super high hopes for it. But from the first few pages, I was hooked. I love that the author used a real mystery (Oak Island) to begin an adventure. She used actual theories that are presented in the mystery of Oak Island and used those theories to create a tale of mystery, romance, and adventure. I also really appreciate that she did not romanticize pirates. We all know that pirates were dirty, rough, and fearsome. She used this to really emerse you in the setting of the ship. She didn't shy away from writting about the diseases and problems faced in that day in age and I can really appreciate that. Honestly, the only problem I had with the novel was that it ended! It's a good thing there are 4 more in the series!
