Pacifica

Marin is corsario 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....

    Mini review to come.

    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

    I received this free eARC novel from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.

    I admit, the word pirate got to me. I am a sucker for pirate novels and have a high expectation of what the novel should consist of. And the way this novel starts? Not at all to do with pirates. And I understood that, so I kept trucking along through the book, but when I got to 40%, I just couldn't do it anymore. It was all political, giving the reader the backstory of what happened to the world with global warming

    I'm going to say it --> This is pretty much one of the BEST pirate stories I've read! I don't even know where to begin with this review?! Peoples, I absolutely freaking adored this one. I actually wasn't sure it'd work for me, as I'm not super keen on dystopian anymore. But it was perfect. It absolutely swallowed my feels whole and I just (!!!)

    My emotions are all: !!!!!

    WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

    • pirates; badass epic conniving pirates

    • one of the best most wholesome friendships ever

    Because he had done this, and it felt like he knew now that sometimes you had to be a pirate in order to survive.


    When he'd hung his head and accepted his sentence, he clung to one final image: a skinny girl with wild curls, driving the boat she'd made with her bare hands into the wide open sea. He thought of Marin, not because she was one of the 86, or because she'd brought him here. Because she was the bravest person he'd ever known, and right now, more than ever, he needed to be brave.

    Pacifica is the first book I have read by Kristen Simmons and I highly enjoyed it. Set in the future, in a dystopian world, this novel had everything from modern-day pirates, historical reflections, mystery, adventure, and a splash of romance. The main characters, Marin and Ross, come from opposites sides of the social ladder, but their world reflects the same view: garbage has taken over the ocean, whales are a rare sight to see, glaciers and icecaps no longer exist, natural resources are low, ...more

    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
