Do you like faeries?
What about pirates?
If you answered yes to either of those, you should probably check out Inherited by Freedom Matthews.
Published by OfTomes, Inherited is Freedom Matthew’s debut novel, about pirates, faeries, and a mysterious curse.
This is one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and it was finally released yesterday!!
I am so so excited for this release. After reading the prequel novella, Into The Forest, I was completely hooked on this story!
It sounds amazing, with a pirate ship manned by awesome female characters, and some faeries AND a curse too!! I have been craving a great pirate story for so long, and I feel like this one is going to be INCREDIBLE!!
Here’s the GoodReads synopsis:
The Wilted Rose, of faery-tale and folklore, is a pirate ship filled with unfortunate souls-each forbidden to love. One such soul is Valencia ‘Lennie’ Roux. Raised in a brothel and an heir to a curse; Lennie never expected to pique the interest of any man. Yet with the arrival of vivid-eyed Nathaniel, she is torn between wanting to know him better and fearing what that knowledge would mean.
With Nathaniel bringing the crew’s total to six, the Wilted Rose sets off in search of the remaining two heirs. They hope that in reuniting, they will convince the faery Sorceress responsible for the curse, to end it. However lurking beneath the water is a long standing enemy of the Wilted Rose; who is determined to thwart their quest and bring down its leaders.
Together the eight heirs fight for survival, friendship and love.
