You know a book is good when you stay up until after midnight to finish it. Yep. That's what I did with this one! So good, so rich in adventure, action, and sweet romance – it was nearly impossible to put this gem down! From the very beginning, I was hooked. And I'll go ahead and admit that this one made me cry. (The prologue, chapter 16, chapter 19oh, yeah. :'( ) Skye, Will and Matthew are great, sweet characters and I just love them all! Kate and John, too, and they made me laugh several tim [...]
While it took me a little while to get into the story, once I actually got into it, it was amazing! I don't read many books about pirates, so it was quite fascinating to read one from a Christian perspective. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I can't wait to read more books be Molly Evangeline!! :)
After reading and reviewing the first two books of Molly’s fantasy trilogy, I offered to read and review her Historical Fiction as well.The Pirate Daughter’s Promise was Molly’s first book, so I knew that to have the same high expectations I had gleaned from Makilien would be unreasonable. Pirates aren’t my usual forte, but I do enjoy good historical fiction, so I was willing to give it a go.The prologue was somewhat hard to get into, but I knew to expect that from reading other reviews. [...]
Ok, so I don't understand all the complaints on the reviews. I see the slight Mary Sue tendencies and the odd POV changes, but it was Ms. Evangeline's first book.Also, it says Young Adult, but it could almost pass as a Middle Grade book.11/12+ for pirateness and some violence (never graphic).
How far would you go to keep a promise? Skyler McHenry is faced with this question in the thrilling high seas adventure by Molly Evangline.When Molly agreed to do an interview for Homeschool authors, I went to her website to do some research. When I saw that The Pirate Daughter’s Promise was only 99 cents, I decided to buy it. I am so glad I did.From the gripping opening to the final, touching page, I was enthralled with Skyler's story. Orphaned and with only two friends in the world, Skyler l [...]
I find that I just really like Molly Evangeline/Jaye L. Knight's writings. I read first her Makilien series, then Resistance, the first book for her new fantasy series. And now I just finally finished the first book, The Pirate Daughter's Promise, in her historical series. I really enjoyed it, even with it being her first published book, and perhaps not as polished and perfected as her others.The Pirate Daughter's Promise was a sweet, exciting adventure with a deep faith theme, tender romances, [...]
At long last, I'm finally getting around to reading Molly's books! I've been in Molly's circles for some time now and have long been impressed with what she has done with her self-publishing career. But being the ditz that I am, it's taken me forever to actually sit down and read her books, even though I've purchased all of them! For shame!At any rate, first on the agenda is The Pirate Daughter's Promise, which is her first book if I am not mistaken. For that reason, it is hard to review. Knowin [...]
The Pirate Daughter's Promise by Molly Evangeline is a good, clean, Christian book that is about pirates. Unlike most stories about pirates, it does not paint the pirates as the good guys. I liked this. It is refreshing to read a book with high-sea adventure, pirates, and action where the bad is not glorified as good. The book also had some romance, but it was clean and God-honoring romance, which was also refreshing.Writing: 4/5The writing in this book was fairly well done. There wasn't anythin [...]
A delightful tale of high seas adventure, faith and perseverance, and a young girl’s steadfast honor for her earthly father and love for her Heavenly Father.Orphaned at a young age, Skye McHenry’s life seems destined to drudgery and hopelessness, but for the love and care of a boy, Will James, also orphaned. Her life takes a drastic turn when she is kidnapped from the orphanage by the merciless pirate, Francis Kelley, for the knowledge she possesses of a hidden treasure. Kelley will stop at [...]
There was so many things I liked about this book, Skye, Will, the awesome adventure, and the strong faith message. There were just a couple of things I didn't enjoy as much. 1. Skye wearing pants. Early 1700's? Would not have happened. Period. I understand that there might have been girls back then that didn't love dresses, but most of them probably wouldn't have thought about going out in pants, it was horrifying. Plus, if you've been raised in skirts, like Skye would have been, you probably do [...]
I was happy to read this book. It was refreshing to say the least - a nice change of pace from my normal reading list. Since I read all the books at home and (most) all of the books in the children's section at the local library, I was forced to "upgrade" to the Young Adult section. Unfortunately, those books aren't as clean as I'd like, so I dropped them and resorted to a few books here and there. This however, was an interesting tale. Action, pirates, sub plots all-woven-intricately-into-the s [...]
Wow! Despite the fact that the story dragged on somewhat, the characters were shallow, and the writing was somewhat amateurish, it DID have one doozy of a plot twist! That my friends, was a plot twist to end all plot twists! Goodness! I literally stopped breathing for nearly 30 seconds. All that being said, this was an okay book, I probably won't read it again, and I probably will check out the next book in the series.
About this book:“Skylar McHenry knew the love of her parents and a doting grandfather until her sixth year was marked by the tragic loss of her mother. When her father's secret past as a pirate came to light, father and daughter fled to a life at sea. Although Daniel McHenry's life had changed and he now robbed pirates to return the stolen goods to their rightful owners, his ship was captured by authorities, and he was hung for piracy. Skye grew up in an orphanage, little more than a servant a [...]
I received this book (and the rest of the series) as a birthday present from a friend. To be honest, I both loved and hated this book. In terms of the characters especially, I really enjoyed following them on their journey and learning new things about them. I loved the Authors writing, aside from her excessive use of the word "Finally" and the way she wove Christian values throughout the book was wonderful.The one thing I didn't like was the similarities with the "Pirates of the Caribbean" Disn [...]
Becoming a orphan at a young age was very hard for Skylar McHenry. She was treated more like a servant and shunned by almost everyone because she was a pirate's daughter. But even through a hard life Skye never lost hope in relying on her heavenly Father's care, and her friendship with Will. Who was a dear friend that she grew up with.But just when things start looking like they may get better, her world falls apart. One night the town is attacked with blasts from a ships cannon. And before Skye [...]
This book takes readers on quite the adventure! I truly enjoyed it. I have to say, it’s definitely a Christian Pirates of the Caribbean, but without Captain Jack Sparrow. The main girl is kidnapped by pirates, a young man named Will fights to go after her, they stop at Tortuga, etc. While some might not like the close similarities, I really enjoyed it. It was fun, whimsical, daring, and entertaining.The story was engaging, and I found myself reluctant to put the book down. There were many plot [...]
I was looking forward to reading and reviewing this book very much. I found out about it through a website for home schooled authors, and when I contacted the author about getting a copy, she offered to send me one for free.I enjoyed the story thoroughly. It had the perfect mix of adventure, faith and romance. I was very pleased with the romance in the story. I typically detest all romance in novels, but the author was careful not to overdo it. I appreciated that. I could tell the author tried h [...]
I loved this book! In fact, though a few months ago I didn't even know Molly Evangeline existed, I have not only read all her books, I have read The Pirate Daughter's Promise twice.Molly is really good at creating likeable characters. She really gets you to care about what happens to them. I love the characters in Pirates and Faith. Skye is very brave and adventurous, but very feminine as well. Will is very chivalrous, something I really loved about him (and also something missing from our cultu [...]
Skye McHenry has led a difficult life cheered only by her faith and her two friends, Will and Matthew. As the daughter of a pirate, most people despise her. When pirates kidnap Skye, she knows they are hunting for her father's treasure. She is determined to keep her promise to never reveal the location of the treasure. Can Will and Matthew rescue her before it's too late?I thoroughly enjoyed this story and read the entire book the same day I got it. The writing style is a bit unpolished at times [...]
This novel was quite enjoyable to read. It is so very rare to find a fiction book that combines the adventures of pirates with that of faith in God, and this one does well. You could call it a Christian Pirates of the Caribbean, with the absence of Jack Sparrow, of course. :]However, the quality of the writing is not professional, but is geared perfectly towards a younger audience. The Point of View (POV) changed often while in the same paragraph, causing slight disorientation. For example, you [...]
This review is from: The Pirate Daughter's Promise: Pirates & Faith, Book 1 (Paperback)This book is filled with God's truth, and love. Skye is a pirate's daughter and devoted christian who is captured by pirates who want the location of her father's treasure. Throughout tough times Skye never looses her faith in God, and the plans he has for her. She finds true friends in unexpected places, and reunites with friends she never bought she'd see again. This is a great book, by a fantastic autho [...]
Not bad for a debut novel. It has its rough spots, but a good story nonetheless. After all, she was only 18 when she published it and her writing has gotten markedly improved with subsequent books. I loved the characters and the message of trust in God. A great story if you're looking for a fun, sweet, pirate adventure. Especially good for teens. It's great that Molly Evangeline is writing clean fiction, especially clean romance, to combat the less wholesome fiction that's being published and pu [...]
I liked parts of this book. I really liked the idea of a pirate story from a christian point of view. Although the plot was exciting, I couldn't help but think that parts of it was a little cheesy or too generic. A lot of the characters were too perfectI would have liked there to be a little more realistic aspects. I also didn't like the fact that a lot of the plot line was too similar to the plot line of Pirates of the Caribbean. One of the main characters is not only named Will but acts a lot [...]
I really enjoyed reading this book! It has a great messageot twistsaracters you side with quicklyd romance! I only put 4 stars because I think the villain could be improved by being more evil. He almost seemed too nice at parts. However, I will be looking forward to reading the next book!! Keep writing, Molly!
wow! This is an amazing book you don't want to miss. An adventure full of danger and excitement, and best of all love from the love of God to the love of another person. There is not one thing I don't like about this book and I am so excited to read the next books. Thank you for writing these wonderful stories Molly Evangeline! :)
Fun read to kick off summer. Pro: great illustrations of how God can use even the worst circumstances for good. Con: plot is too similar to the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Still enjoyed it though.
I first read Molly Evangeline's Makilien Trilogy, and I completely fell in love with this series! I got curious of her first books, "Pirates & Faith", and started this book.Even though this was her first book, it was AMAZING!
A-Maz-Ing. Absolutely incredible. A definite must-read. Remarkable. And all other words that mean the same.(You might want some tissues though)
A fun read, very reminiscent of Pirates of the Caribbean. Not as strong as some of the other books by the same author, but entertaining.
