Pacifica

Marin is cosario royalty, a pirate like her father and his father before him. Sailing the ocean to chase adventure is in her blood. But these days no one cares that the island town her people call home is named after her grandfather. They have a new leader, one who promises an end to their hunger and one who thinks that girls are meant for the kitchen or the brothel. Marin knows she's meant for more than that, and with the sudden influx of weapons on the island, and rumors of a pending deal with the enemy oil nation in her wake, she knows a big score to gain the council's favor is the only way to save her people, and herself.Ross lives a life of privilege. As the president's son he wants for nothing, but he longs for a life of adventure. On a dare, he convinces his best friend Adam to sneak out to the Docks, the site of local race riots between the poor Shorlings and the upper class. But when Adam is arrested along with the other Shorlings, and not even the president is willing to find him, Ross finds himself taking matters into his own hands. He journeys back into the Docks, ready to make deals with anyone, even a beautiful pirate, if it means Adam's safe return.When Marin and Ross meet in dangerous Shoreling territory he sees a way to get his friend back and she sees her ticket home. The ransom a presidents son would command could feed her people for years and restore her familys legacy. But somewhere in the middle of the ocean, Marin must decide if her heart can handle handing over the only person who has ever seen her as more than a pirate....

Pacifica Reviews

  • Erin Arkin

    In Pacifica, Kristen Simmons has created a world where climate change has impacted the world so negatively that the world we know today doesn’t exist any longer and I have to say, it is quite frightening that this could probably actually happen. It's no secret that I love the stories that Simmons writes and this one is no different. From start to finish I was immersed in this story of politics, friendship, and family. Also – the cover is amazing! As always...no spoilers below.

    GUYS THIS BOOK ADFSAHFKJSDH

    FIRST OF ALL, I'VE ALWAYS LOVED PIRATES



    SECOND OF ALL, THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING I'VE EVER WANTED

    1. Marin - I don't remember the last time I loved the MC so much. Marin is such an interesting and complex character - she is a totally badass pirate, but at the same time a sweet girl who just want to be loved and appreciated. "Sailing the ocean to chase adventure is in her blood" is totally true. The moment she stepped on that boat you could see how capable she is and how

    Same Review Also Posted On My Blog: Dreamy Addictions

    First of all, I never read Kristen Simmon's books but I was very much excited to read Pacifica because it says pirates and sea adventure in a dystopian world. I mean who could resist that? not me. This story was actually inspired from the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. It was an enjoyable read and I really liked the plot and the concept, but it was missing that wow factor that'll leave you in ama

    ahhhh, this was just as wonderful as I'd hoped it would be!! I've been waiting--wanting--to read Pacifica for the longest time now, and it was so, so worth it. I loved Marin, I loved Ross (despite... his name... which shouldn't matter, but when it's the same as the guy from Friends, yeah), and I loved the complicated relationships they had with each other and with other people in their lives.

    This was just SO GOOD.

    In a post-apocolyptic world, nature is lashing out. Humanity has had to change to survive, but with people, somethings never truly change. Marin is a pirate in this new world. She is a cut throat, sailing and dangerous buccaneer, and she also has been trapped away from her people on land with the land lovers; then one day, and opportunity arrived. Ross is the son of the President, prestigious and powerful. He needs Marin to help him find and save his friend, and in the process they both get suc

    Kristen Simmons has a gift for cultivating the sweetest of loves from the darkest of places. In Pacifica, she's created a bleak, futuristic world that's utterly believable and terrifying, and yet from out of it springs the greatest of hope, carried on the back of its fierce main characters. I was swept away.

    This book covers some really important topics (climate change, the Japanese internment, political corruption, etc.) so I really wanted to love it. And I do love those parts and how they're covered and dealt with. But overall, the plot just didn't work for me. The synopsis sounds amazing but for some reason, I was just bored in a lot of places. Even with the constant action, the story just didn't flow very well for me. And I hate saying that because I think this book will be loved by a lot of peo ...more
