The Redemption, Legacy of the Kings' Pirates Series #1
Fabulous Pirating Adventure!
This is a well-written tale of adventure on the high seas. Edmund Merrick is a reformed man. He's become a Christian and a privateer. He still struggles with his old fleshly desires, but truly wants to be the man that God created him to be. Will he succeed as a Christian and be able to keep his career as a pirate captain? Charlisse Bristol has escaped her tyrannical uncle's clutches, and is off in search of the father she has never known. She is rescued by Captain Merrick after being stranded on an island. He agrees to take her to Port Royal in search of her father. But when he learns that the man she seeks is none other than Edward the Terror, a ferocious pirate and Merrick's former captain, how will Edmund protect the lady he has grown to love from the pirate he has vowed to bring to justice?
M.L. Tyndall has crafted a very difficult to put down book. The chapters are short and easy to read. The chapter titles offer teases as to the contents. The characters and settings are so real they almost pop off the page! The Christian theme is woven creatively throughout the story. I can't wait to read book 2 in the series!

The Redemption is MaryLu Tyndall's first book. It is the first book in the series Legacy of the King's Pirates series.
The Redemption is a romance between the charming hero, Captain Merrick, and the strong-willed Charlisse, who is escaping her brutal uncle and searching for her father. As the story progresses, both Charlisse and Merrick evolve into very likable characters who anyone can relate to. Their relationship is sweet and realistic.
This book combines many favorable elements: mystery, romance, danger, sea voyages, evil characters, godly characters, and also faith that is tried but overcomes.
This is a book that can't be put down, a page-turner. I loved it! I've read it five times, that is how good this book is.

Set during the 1660's, Ms. Tyndall's fast paced, high sea adventure had me captured from the opening scene.
At twenty, Lady Charlisse Bristol, leaves behind her cruel uncle in London in order to find her unknown father. After a shipwreck, she is found in a deserted island by some pirates and Captain Edmund Merrick. He offers to take Lady Charlisse on his ship and later he finds out about the identity of her father.
Very well developed main characters as well as some interesting secondary characters. I enjoyed as the christian hero helps turn Lady Charlisse to God.
This engaging Christian pirate book is packed with action and twists. This is a pirate series I would read over and over again.
Be aware that there is some adult conversation and scenes that it may or may not be suitable for younger readers or even conserative readers.
