Favourite sentence from page 11

Bullies were like wolves: they travelled in packs and would pick your bones clean.

The book in three words

Swashbuckling, adventurous, magical.

The Ship of Shadows is an engrossing, fast-moving, utterly magical read that will both captivated you and keep you hooked. It has everything you could want from a middle grade adventure. It has kick-ass female pirates,  a thrilling plot, amazing magic and characters that just stuck with me long after I’d finished reading. Everything within the plot was well-paced and nothing seemed out of place. I found myself loving the magic system within the story and would love to know more about it. Overall it was a book that I found very hard to put down and one that I will be recommending to people of all ages.
