OKay ...so what better series to read in the winter?? Who doesn't want to feel the wind blowing in their hair and imagine being on a ship.....hearing pirate speech, sword fighting and all....That is what I love about this series and about MaryLu Tyndall..she describes her characters so well you can visualize them and while reading you feel like you are right there as everything is taking place. I guess I honestly love this book as I have the same dream as hope...to have an orphanage and help children, and have gone through one horrible thing as she did..and yet Understand Nathaniel too...it is a wonderful story and I love that she also includes the Lord as well..many Christian books do not. Thank you M L Tyndall for this wonderful series and for touching my life through it....ps..this book can stand on its own..but I honestly feel you will want to read the entire series....would make a great Christmas gift too!
After reading "The Red Siren" by MaryLu Tyndall, I had to buy the second book to this series "The Blue Enchantress"! A total different plot going on, but follows along from "The Red Siren"! Hope Westcott is a young lady in love, but comes to where the man she so much trusted betrays her. From there she finds herself being sold like any other slave would be at an action block in Caribbean Islands. Captain Nathaniel Mason who is a merchant captain trying to make a business. He comes across Hope seeing her being auctioned off and soon Nathaniel sells off all what he has to save her.
Hope and Nathaniel now with nothing in their possession, try to make their way back home to Charles Towne. Seeing what Nathaniel has done for her, she took a vow to change her ways and become a proper lady. On their journey home, they face a hurricane out on sea, get shipwrecked on an island, and they are surviving by Nathaniel's skills while both face many different kinds of dangers from duel to the death all the way to pirates. Nathaniel is opened up to what really matters in life and soon sees what God has really called him to. On the other hand when Hope is faced with the many difficult challenges, she is faced to either turn to God or be lured back to her old ways she lived her life. After reading "The Blue Enchantress" this is definitely a great romantic seafaring adventure to take your mind on!
I think I liked this book even better than The Red Siren, the first book in this great series. Hope was a very believable character that I was rooting for throughout the entire story. She struggles with very real problems that normal people struggle with. I liked Nathaniel very much and thought he was a wonderfully-written character. He was very kind to hope most of the time. MaryLu Tyndall describes her settings so well, I felt like I was with the characters in most of the scenes. I definitely loved this book and it kept me up well into the night because I just couldn't put it down. There are twists after twists in this novel. All I can say is, I hope some of Tyndall's books are made into movies! I would recommend it to friends and family.
