Review: The Pirate Curse
The Pirate Curse by E.J. Stevens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Urban Fantasy
Reading Level: Young Adult
Recommended for: fans of YA fantasy
Book Available: Scheduled for October 8, 2013, but available now
My Thoughts: And so it ends. Yes, this is the final book in the Spirit Guide series, and I'm sad that it's over; I think there could easily have been a few more books in this series, but I was satisfied with how it ended.
There is, as always, plenty of humor in this. One quote I highlighted is two paragraphs long, so too much for a review, but this one should be okay: “If wishes were flying monkeys, we'd all be wearing tiny hats.”
This was an ARC, so it wasn't the final version. Hopefully that means the multiple cases of “you're” being used instead of the correct, possessive “your” will be fixed in the final version that was scheduled for release on October 8, but which has been made available early in e-book and paperback formats.
This whole series is one that any fan of YA fantasy should love, so if that describes you and you still haven't read any of these books, then this is a great time to grab and read the whole series.
