From Goodreads: As the daughter of a London physician in 1717, sixteen-year-old Tess Willoughby has seen her share of horrors and been to some of the city’s shadiest quarters. But a simple trip through the chaos of a London marketplace takes a bizarre twist. Tess witnesses the murder of a renowned elderly seer and unwittingly becomes the mistress of the woman’s prophetic spinner ring. Even worse, Tess’s panic-stricken trip home leads her to discover a secret family history that shocks Tess to her core. Unable to give up the bejeweled ring, Tess must embark on a treacherous voyage to the pirate-infested waters of the West Indies. Trapped on a merchant ship and unwillingly betrothed to the murderer who covets the power of her ring, Tess finds strength and comfort in the company of a handsome sailor, even though this growing temptation will most certainly jeopardize their lives. Even stranger, she soon realizes that even though her fianc is ruthless, he alone can secure her safety throughout their perilous journey. Thrust into a world she doesn’t understand to fulfill a role she is only beginning to grasp, Tess questions everything she has believed up to now. Her only hope of saving those she loves is to accept her destiny. And yet, the strange influence of her spinner ring could change everything … 

Review: Pirating! That was enough for me to want to read this book. If you know me at all, then you know that I’m obsessed with pirates. Blame Johnny Depp and his awesomeness. However, this is not a Caribbean adventure. It is definitely a well researched story. I enjoyed the danger and historical aspects of it all more than anything. The characters are all well written and this book doesn’t hold anything back regarding the circumstances of pirating. 

It’s an adventure with a little magic thrown in with misfits and pirates. A good book if you are looking for an adventurous read. I’d recommend it. I’ll be checking out the next book, just not right away.
