    1. Ştiţi momentul ăla în care îţi place atât de mult o carte pe care vrei să o termini, dar nu poţi pentru că profesorii îţi dau 100 de exerciţii de făcut pentru acasă? Exact asta mi s-a întâmplat şi mie, dar, din fericire şi într-un sfârşit, am reuşit să o termin. Ca să fiu sinceră, mai bine nu o făceamÎnceputul cărţii ne prezintă viaţa pe care Art o are cu soţul ei, Felix Phoenix pentru că da, a reuşit să scape de la a fi spânzurată. Şi asta doar cu ajutorul [...]

    2. Art Blastside is back and this time the tables are turned. Art and Felix have gotten married and live in a huge mansion granted them by one of Felix's father's former friends. Art is miserable and longs for the sea, so when offered the chance to become legal pirates (privateers - only preying on Franco-Spanish ships) she takes it - despite Felix's protests. So she and her crew reboard the Unwelcome Stranger along with some additions. Felix and Art do nothing but fight and it eventually leads to [...]

    3. A fun follow up to the first one. The girls are a little older now. I love Tanith Lee's writing style. She uses parentheses in text to give ideas, alternates, and elucidations in the most charming way. I wish I could explain it better, but I don't feel I can do it justice. I will be reading these aloud to my kid(s) as soon as interest is shown.

    4. Returned unfinished. Blah blah blah. Fan-fic-o-rama. Fortunately, I have the luminous Housekeeping to attend to instead.

    5. Art Blastside is back indeed!! But life isn't quite what she expected. Married to her beloved, she is the adored celebrity of free England, possessor of a fine mansion and stunning possessionsd bored out of her brains. When the government asks her to return to the sea, this time as a "legal" pirate (privateer), she jumps at the chance. The ole' crew is rounded upd off they go!But Piratica is not the only one to take to the sea, Little Goldie Girl is back with a vengeance and new faces appear, as [...]

    6. I feel like the author could have done a little bit better with the writing and the shift between charters on the second book. I really loved the first one for the main character Art but the sequel was a bit of a disappointment. Art in this one was just not as strong and more so a wimp. I feel that maybe the author wanted us to realize the Art has feeling and isn't just some tough chick. That the author wanted a more realistic situation at hand. That Art's code and lifestyle was really not somet [...]

    7. As the second in a series, it didn't quite live up to the first book. However, the characters are well drawn, and the action is consistent, moving you through the book. (I was so relieved to read a book that didn't putz around the first 300 pages and then have a quick action sequence at the end, as if to make up for the fact that nothing happened the other 300 pages.) This book also had a different flavor from Tanith Lee's other books it lacked the grandeur and evocative language that can be fou [...]

    8. The first one I found really amusing but this one I got kind of annoyed with. It was well done but the fact that she was trying to keep it a middle school aged book was obvious. If you want to write a book for 10-14 year olds don't write about the naval battle at Gibraltar. And that one pirate just won't die! He got shot and fell off a cliff in the first book! Just let him be dead. And the fact that they are pirates that attack ships in a pirate fashion but none of the ships fight back and at th [...]

    9. Tanith Lee has an interesting fanciful way with words, from Fringlish, to off-kilter alternate world place names to ship names. Art heads back to the sea, but the plot somehow plodded and though I'm used to Lee's heroines being on the cranky side, she just isn't very interesting. Muck was good fun though.

    10. The tone of this book is strange. On the one hand, you have naval battles and creepy ghost-hunting pirate ships, but on the other hand you have the entire population of England dressing up as pirates and ships named for exclamations people made just as they were christening them. Peculiar.

    11. I didn't actually finish it From the beginning, it wasn't as good as the first. I quickly lost interest and honestly have no desire to read the third after seeing its reviews. I'd be incredibly disappointed I think. That's what I get for being a hopeless romantic I suppose.

    12. Efter den första fantastiska boken var detta en mindre besvikelse. Men det kanske bara var fel tidpunkt för att läsa den här.

    13. Where the first one was fun, this one leaned a bit towards the so-silly-its-actually-pretty-dumb category. I mean, mostly, it was still fun. It was just a little even dumber.

    14. I loved it just as much if not more than the first. It illed me a little inside to hear of Piratica and her Felix arguing.

    15. this book was really hard to get into, and kind of boring in parts. But the idea is so refreshing and unsexist, and the characters are so lovable and funny, that the book was still pretty good

    16. Slower to start than the first book, but once it got going it kept my attention. An enjoyable light read, with lots of puns and silliness.
