Swept Up by the Sea

Book Details
Release Date: July 2013
Publisher: Shadow Mountain
Genre: YA Fantasy

I LOVED this book!
A LOT of FANTASTIC SCENES, filled with tongue-in-cheek humor, are found in these pages!

If you have read Tales of the Dragon's Bard: Eventide, then you have met our meddling story-teller, Edvard. He is only trying to NOT be eaten by providing wonderful stories for the dragon.

And he especially loves to meddle in stories that involve 'matters-of-the-heart!
So he seduces a poor village girl, Vestia, and arranges a marriage between her and Percival Taylor....But Percival wants to seek his own fortune! (Read my review of Eventide HERE)

A chance meeting between Percival, Madame Zoltana and a deck of cards tells Percival that he must find his destiny at sea! 

How can he become a legendary pirate and win the heart of the beautiful Tuppence, the girl of his dreams...the one that he just met, if no one will let him even near a ship in the port of Blackshore?

And to top that off, the Dragon Bard, along with his scribe, have finally caught up to him in hopes of bringing him back to Eventide. However, Edvard realizes a story might be in the making right here in Blackshore.

Alas, Edvard summons Vestia to come to Blackshore, while Percival finally gets a broken down ship along with a very INTERESTING and HILARIOUS crew!

And what of Tuppence? She is the governors daughter and the first lady of Blackshore. She is suppose to be bred in all of the finest things. However she fancies the forbidden and the scoundrels...

So when she reads a book written by the Dragon's Bard, and runs into Percival who just happens to look just like the pirate in the book, she will do anything to become the love of said pirate...even go so far as to kidnap herself.

When the two women meet, and fight over Percival, he comes to understand "why men go to sea."

Strange characters you will find as you sail along with Percival in hopes of finding treasure and romance! 
It is your destiny to read this book and be "swept up by the sea."
