“Sisterhood is survival"
As soon as I read the blurb on the inside cover of Seafire, I was hooked. The premise of the book is an all female ship of sailors, rebelling against an all powerful male overlord, who is cruel and will let nothing stand in the way of his conquest.
As the book opens, we see the main character Caledonia Styx as a young girl, during the event that changed her path in life. This starting scene gives a relatable edge to caledonia, as she is portrayed as weak and helpless right off the bat. As the book progresses, we see her gain her feet and become a strong willed, powerful woman. She goes through grief and feels defeat, but she always looks up and beyond, saying “Hoist your eyes”.
As I read Seafire, I was captivated. Every word kept me glued to the page, and I found myself lost in the story. As the first of a trilogy, I have high hopes for Caledonia, and her ship of strong women. Natalie C. Parker is one of my newest authors to watch, and I’m ready to get into the trilogies next release.
