    "The swashbuckler has to be my favorite genre, both in literature an in film. Sadly, we rarely get a good female pirate. In Piratica, we learn the story of Artemesia, a queen of the high seas. This book is empowering for women of all ages. "

    "Pirates is a fun and adventurous book full of breathtaking twists and turns. I love that the main character is a woman, which brings a unique take on the usual pirate tale. There's lots of sweet romance and beautiful moments between characters too."

    "Great book about female pirates as Jack is very sneaky and passes herself off as a boy. Really for younger readers and I believe my kids read this in grade school. Very true to life and moral. Jack is a great character. "

    "This book about female pirates is absolute garbage. The story is forced by the author and not at all creative. The characters themselves are not at believable and it is really hard to take an interest in their story. Avoid this trash!"

    "I wanted to read a good book about female pirates and was told to check out Sea Star. This book is a fictional take on female pirates, but seems to be close to the real thing.

    "While this may not necessarily be a book for me, and I can't help but think of this one as a female version of "Pirates of the Caribbean", it appears to be reviewed quite positively, which would make me endorse it. As long this novel offers a solid story and interesting characters, that makes it win in my eyes."
