Blacksouls (Blackhearts #2)

Nicole Castroman

Published by Simon Pulse

Released on April 11th 2017

Genre: YA, Historical Fiction, Romance, Pirates and Adventure.

 

Nicole Castroman brings the dangerous pirate ports of the Caribbean to life in this vibrant sequel to Blackhearts—the reimagined origin story of history’s most infamous pirate, Blackbeard.

Edward “Teach” Drummond is setting sail to the Caribbean as first mate on the most celebrated merchant ship in the British fleet—until he rebels against his captain. Mutiny is a capital offense and Teach knows it could cost him his life, but he believes it worth the risk in order to save his crew from the attacking Spanish ships. 

 Sailing on the same blue waters, Anne barely avoids the Spanish attack, making it safely to Nassau. But lawless criminals, corrupt politics, and dangerous intentions fill the crowded streets of this Caribbean port. Soon, Anne discovers that the man entrusted to keep the peace is quite possibly the most treacherous of them all—and he just happens to hold Teach’s fate in his terrifying hands. 

 Life and death hang in the balance when Teach and Anne are given a dangerous mission. It’s a mission that will test their love, loyalty and devotion, forcing them down a path neither one could have ever imagined. 

 

My Spoiler Free Review

Blacksouls is the second book in a delightful series by Nicole Castroman. The first book in this series, Blackhearts, starts our exploration into the pirate Blackbeard and his life. With more action, ocean and pirates than the first book, Blacksouls is definitely a fun read and a great continuation to the series.

 I adored the action that just kept me on my toes) though I will admit the first 50 or so pages were a little slower. The plot definitely gets more complex and leaves a huge opening for the series to continue  (do I really have to wait a whole year for book 3? Really?  *sighs*).

Teach and Anne continue their romance….and though I wasn’t too impressed by Teach’s temper and jealousy at times. But as a whole their relationship seems pretty healthy and cute and I can’t wait to see what happens between them. 

Plus Anne is such a strong character…honestly. From the first page of Blackhearts to now, she’s grown so much and become such a strong willed and now physically strong character. 

Plus there’s Reva. Female. Pirate. Kickass. Yes please… I need more.  

I gave this installment 3.5 stars and cant wait to read book 3.
