The book I’m commenting on (as per blogger participation requirements) is Quintspinner: A Pirate’s Quest (Quintspinner Series).
Book Festival), Best Commercial Novel (Eric Hoffer), Book of the Year (Foreword Reviews)Even in the year 1717, one month, one week, or one day, can make all the difference in the world.One month and a day ago, Tess Willoughby was the daughter of a well-to-do physician in London.One month ago, she witnessed the murder of an old seer and came into possession of the dead woman’s odd ring – an ancient Spinner ring, known by the locals as the Ring of Prophesy, and was wrongly accused by her father of having stolen the ring.Three weeks ago, by her father’s arrangement for the family, she became an unwilling passenger on a merchant ship bound for the pirate-infested waters of the Caribbean.Two weeks ago, at her father’s insistence, she became forcibly betrothed to a man who she recognized as being the seer’s murderer – a man who covets her only for her ring.One week ago, she met a sailor and experienced the thrill of being in love for the first time.Two days ago, she realized that such a secret love would endanger them both, and heart-broken, she was forced to choose her loyalty.
Yesterday, her fiance betrayed her during a pirate attack and those she loved were slaughtered.
Today, she is plotting to save her own life and perhaps to take his in retribution. The ring is urging her to decide quickly ….
Tomorrow will be too late.
A secret and unauthorized trip through the chaos of a 1717 London marketplace takes a bizarre twist for 16 year old Tess. Unexpectedly witnessing the murder of a renowned Seer, Tess becomes the keeper of the old woman’s legendary spinner ring and its supposed power of prophecy.
Biography of the Author: Dianne Greenlay
I chose this because of the blurb, mostly. Especially this bit:
A tale of pirates and treasure, love and betrayal, all bound together by a dash of ancient magic, Quintspinner has been described by readers as “a wonderfully entertaining, fast and furious ride; Lord of the Rings meets Pirates of the Caribbean”.
All sounds pretty pretty riveting to me. 😀 I wouldn’t normally read this genre, but occasionally a change is goooood. 🙂 And let’s face it, after that blurb, I need to find out what happened to poor Tess; that’s quite some coming-of-age nightmare!
Regarding the cover, it lends a mysterious and rather ghostly atmosphere to the book, which is intriguing. It conjures thoughts of large salt worn ships moving steadily through thick mist and inky oceans, silently coasting. Spooky.
