Ocean’s Light (Blood of the Pirate BOOK 1) by Mina Chara – Review by Jennifer Wolbeck

The Ocean's LightThe Ocean’s Light by Mina Chara
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a promising start for a cozy, young adult adventure on the high seas. You get the classic elements of pirates and treasure maps, while also having the benefit of seeing the story unfold from the young orphan heroine, Evie Waters’s, point of view. It was fun reading about this kind of story from a girl’s perspective, but her overall characterization felt rough at times. She’s stubborn, strong willed and very nerdy, but it would have been more compelling to have a heroine with more dimensions to her personality. My favorite part of the novel was the world building, which we cleverly get to explore more in depth because Evie is an aspiring cartographer and must compensate for her lack of experience with her vast book-learned knowledge.
