A thrilling tale of adventure set aboard the high seas, and in a magical universe which holds plenty of secrets to boot Jasmine Midge is an engaging and likeable hero or heroine, I should say with plenty of attitude, and I found myself rooting for her throughout as she comes up against some pretty formidable odds and foes and it s hard to know who she can trust The ships and sea almost feel like characters themselves, and I felt like I was right there on deck facing the dangers I would have appreciated just a touch background on the various lands in this fantasy universe, but maybe that is to come with further instalments in the series An excellent debut I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved this tale of a girl who lives on the sea aboard a ship called the Wielder s Prize Jasmine has a rough life as a crewmate note a few scenes of physical abuse included, when she s beaten The magic threaded through this novel was fascinating, and the worldbuilding details were creative Wielding using someone s magic what a great term The characters had real emotions and weren t afraid to use them Things were well described In sum, this novel is a lively adventure, peopled with interesting characters and splashed with awesome magic I received an ARC of this book, and this is my honest review. This was such a fun story I could not put it down and so stayed up way too late reading it Among the things I liked best were 1 the conflicted, imperfect, but very likeable heroine and 2 one of the major spoilers, which was also one of the book s most squee worthy moments There is a lot of potential in the worldbuilding, and I hope the sequel shows us of that world and of how magic works in it I really enjoyed the sequences with magic in this novel and would like to understand how it works within that world it better In short, I m really looking forward to the next one and to seeing what the principal characters do next. A Wonderful SurpriseAdventure Battles Magic Dangers just below the surface This book was such a breath of fresh air, and I loved going on a voyage with these characters I read this in less than a day around lots of familial commitments, so it clearly had some great tension Looking forward to installment 2 It s been a while since I had the pleasure of reading a good swashbuckler A delightfully enchanting story of a girl, pretending to be a boy, on a tall ship full of men Jasmine, aka, Midge has lived on the Wielder s Prize for as long as she can remember The cook, her father, keeps her beauty hidden by giving Jasmine a couple of knocks to the face, which is disturbing When she s shanghaied to another ship, she encounters a wielder A wielder, in other terms is a magician, a wizard While on the Seahawk, Jasmine s true nature is discovered, and things heat up The reader will delight in a twist here and there that I didn t see coming, which makes Wielder s Prize an enthralling read I had the honor of receiving an ARC for an honest review.
