Friday, October 9, 2015
Kate looked at Skye gravely. “Kelley gave me one week to find out where your treasure is or… he’d whip both of us. The week ends tomorrow. I’ve been tryin’ all week to find a way for us to escape, but how can you get off a ship in the middle of the ocean?”

Book: The Pirate Daughter's Promise: Pirates & Faith, Book 1 by Molly Evangeline, Self-Published, 2010

Genre: Adventure
Target Audience: Girls 12-16

Summary:  Life may be hard, but it’s not that bad. She does have a place to live and food to eat and she has a couple of close friends. Skye is accepting of her life. That all changes the night pirates break into the orphanage and kidnap her! It seems, the legendary Kelley has decided he wants the treasure Skye’s dad hid before his death years ago – the treasure that only Skye knows the location to. Trapped on a pirate ship with no way to escape, Survival is nearly impossible. If she reveals the location, Kelley will simply kill her and take the treasure. If she refuses to tell him where the treasure is, he will torture her till she is close to death. Her friends want to rescue her, but as soon as a ship’s crew hears who holds her prisoner, everyone refuses to help. No one wants to take on the fiercest pirate on the seas!
Notes: The Pirate’s daughter is the first in the Pirates and Faith series. The story appears to wrap up completely, but the next book creates another story about the same characters. This is the first book ever published by this author.
The book focuses on both the action of the adventure and the character development as there is a hint of a blossoming relationship between some of them. There is a surprise twist thrown in towards the end of the story, making it not too predictable of a story.
The spiritual elements are very strong in this story. The main characters are both strong believers and often encourage each other in their faith. They also share the Gospel with those around them, some of whom become saved.
Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Psalm 62:8 - Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.

Thank you to the author for providing me with a free review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I enjoyed it!
