The Pirate’s Wish by Cassandra Rose Clarke

The Pirate’s Wish by Cassandra Rose Clarke

May 24, 2013 Reviews 2 ★★★★

Picking up almost exactly where The Assassin's Curse left off, The Pirate's Wish follows Ananna and Naji as they travel around their world, trying to complete three impossible tasks to break the curse between them.

I hate to begin the review like this, but Strange Chemistry really need to work on their blurbs. The one I’ve provided is only half of the one on their site, and the reason I haven’t included it in full is because it basically makes 2/3 of the book redundant….
