Fantasy. Fiction. Romance. HTML:

Maeve Cross never felt like a princess. She didn't belong in a high tower, married off to the highest bidder. She ached for freedom. A longing for the sea that she didn't understand. After being pushed over the edge, she runs, taking her destiny in her own hands for the first time in her life.

She stows away on a pirate ship because she would rather walk the plank than share her awful husband's bed.

Captain Leviathan has three goals in life: keep his crew alive, fill their pockets, and protect them from the Cross family of tyrants. He never accounted for Maeve. Not once.

They can't help themselves by the bonds of fate that tie them together. Not even as they deny each other their attraction.

After all, a tyrant's daughter and a scorned captain couldn't possibly work. Could it?

But fate has other plans as the mysteries surrounding Farlight Isles start to unravel like a loose thread. Every new thread leaves Maeve questioning everything her father taught her as it challenges her own identity.

Despite it all, Maeve saw that the only constant...was Captain Leviathan.

I'm sorry, an enemys(ish)-to-lovers between a pirate captain and a runaway princess? Oh, also there are sirens, secrets, shipwrecks, a little spice, and a sweet helping of the found-family trope? Yeah, I'm into it. Miller takes us on a beautiful, albeit occasionally predictable journey, with excellent world-building and heart. The plot is a mixed bag of fun surprises and "twists" you could see coming a mile away, but the characters are so sincere and the setting so swashbuckly, you'll easily forgive it and enjoy the ride. I look forward to the next book in the series.

I received a copy of this book as a part of LT's Early Reviewers program.

4 out of 5 stars

As the princess of the Farlight Isles, Maeve Cross is nothing more than a bargaining chip, sold in marriage to the highest bidder - one Nathaniel Pike, Lord of the Ivory Keys, pirate hunter - in return for the army her father dreams of. In a desperate bid for escape after the wedding, she stows away on the pirate ship of Captain Leviathan, hiding all hints of her identity. While Leviathan is not pleased to find a stowaway on his ship, he is inexplicably drawn to her, just as she is to him. But he has a history with the Cross family, one intertwined with the secret of his identity. Will their relationship survive once their secrets come to light? I'd recommend this for anyone looking for a fun lark with enemies-to-lovers, instant-lust, and an hint of brat-taming. I would avoid this if you're coming just for the pirates; while there's an adventure and it takes place on a ship, there's not a whole lot of swash-buckling in this book.

While I think the concept is worthy of five stars, the writing held this one back a bit. The dialogue is kind of choppy at times, and some of the banter between Leviathan and Maeve felt more forced than pithy. I also have never seen the word "warbled" to describe the way someone talks more often than it was used in this book, which really bothered me for some reason I can't quite put my finger on. However, while those things pulled this down to a four star read for me, I still had a lot of fun reading this book. I enjoyed the world that Miller built here and I'm excited to see where she goes; I will one hundred percent read the rest of the books in this series as they come out. ( )

An epic adventure with pirates, princesses and dragons – what a trio, I was sold the moment I read the blurb! Honestly wow, what a story this was. A great combination of spice and sincerity, with forbidden romance and found family as key tropes. Anacostia is a screenwriter with a background in filmmaking, so it is no wonder I felt this could be made into a film. Also, she is a real one for growing up with The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I have a lot of respect for people like that.

This is Book 1 of The Guardians of Farlight Isles series.

I raced through this because it was so good! Anacostia has a way with words that made me want to join in the swashbuckling adventure. Some moments really made me feel like “this needs to be a film”. It was fast-paced and I loved the storyline, how strong Maeve is as a character who only gets stronger as the book goes on, the chemistry between her and Leviathan, the friends made along the way, and the secrets that get revealed though all quite predictable.
I loved the wording/descriptions, in the first chapter especially. Very poetic. There is a good mixture of funny, serious and steamy moments.
The name of the ship is clever as The Ollipheist is akin to the Irish word Oilliphéist meaning sea serpent/monster. The only negative thing: there was not enough action for this book to be as long as it was. I accept this is the case as it is Book 1 of a series, and a starting book is always a lot slower as it introduces the world, themes, people, the overall plot. I am very eager for Book 2! ( )

I’m so glad I came across this book - what a fun, surprising, sea-faring adventure! Pirates and sea monsters and villains, oh my.

The story grips you from the first few pages and the author does a fantastic job of making it feel immersive - you can feel, smell, and visualize what’s happening (but those details don’t weigh the story down at all). The pacing is fast and the bread crumb reveals about characters and plot points had me flying through this because I was so intrigued and HAD to know what was next. A few points I literally gasped and said *WHAT* out loud.

Probably my favorite element was the crew. There were so many unexpected layers to this cast, they were very diverse and such a strong found family 😍 I loved how natural it was that there were queer and disabled people, and various races (elf, merrow, human, leviathan, and other sea creates, etc) in this world. I’m really looking forward to learning more about them all and their stories.

This was a romantasy with a fast burn attraction and slow burn romance between two feisty and fierce characters. 🤌🏻 Lots of open door spice (🔥🥵), but the author does an excellent job with content warnings in the beginning of the book so you know what you are getting into (or want to skip).

I enjoyed this wild ride so much I didn’t want the story to end and can’t wait for the next installment!

This was an extremely interesting book that I flew through. I only have a few things that I am critical of. One was that the King Should have been killed, you are pirates, and as such should act like it. The second is that I think a few scenes should have been condensed down or edited to make more room for the main plot of the book as we still don't have answers to a lot of the main questions in the story. Overall though a very good read!
