Megan Write Now: SEAFIRE Playlist
Have you read SEAFIRE by Natalie C. Parker? If I had to sum this book up in one blurb, it would be this: a breathtaking feminist pirate story! And it lends itself perfectly to that sort of suspenseful, hard-hitting, and emotional music that I love.
So, what's a reader to do? Create a book playlist, of course!
Check out my playlist below, but first, here's a synopsis for anyone who hasn't read SEAFIRE yet.
SEAFIRE: THE BOOK
A warlord killed Caledonia's parents and kidnapped her brother. Now, on the deadly Bullet seas, Captain Caledonia Styx and her all-female crew are ready for revenge.
"This is Mad Max by way of Davy Jones, a high-energy, breathless adventure [about] a group of damaged girls who find home in one another." --Booklist
"The pace of the book is fast and relentless, and the action sequences tense and believable, but the best moments are the ones in which the female relationships shine." --NPR
"One of the most spell-binding adventures of the year. This is female piracy at its best." --The San Francisco Chronicle
"The best kind of fantasy. . . . impossible to put down." --Paste
After her family is killed by corrupt warlord Aric Athair and his bloodthirsty army of Bullets, Caledonia Styx is left to chart her own course on the dangerous and deadly seas. She captains her ship, the Mors Navis, with a crew of girls and women just like her, who have lost their families and homes because of Aric and his men. The crew has one mission: stay alive, and take down Aric's armed and armored fleet.
But when Caledonia's best friend and second-in-command barely survives an attack thanks to help from a Bullet looking to defect, Caledonia finds herself questioning whether to let him join their crew. Is this boy the key to taking down Aric Athair once and for all...or will he threaten everything the women of the Mors Navis have worked for?
The first in a heart-stopping trilogy that recalls the undeniable feminine power of Wonder Woman and the powder-keg action of Mad Max: Fury Road, Seafire reminds us of the importance of sisterhood and unity in the face of oppression and tyranny.
