Title: The Redemption (Legacy of the King’s Pirates #1)
Author: M. L. (MaryLu) Tyndall
Publisher: Barbour Publishing
This is a fabulous Christian historical romance. I’m giving it 5 stars and looking forward to reading the other books in this series.
Lady Charlisse Bristol sets off on a voyage to find her father whom she never knew. Instead she finds herself shipwrecked on a deserted island in the Caribbean. After weeks, stranded by herself, she finds that her salvation comes in the form of a band of pirates. Their leader is fiercely handsome, Edmund Merrick. He is busy learning to walk a more godly path while still leading his crew. He now has added the task of shielding Charlisse from his lecherous crew to the task of trying to bring the cruelest pirates to justice. Can the supernatural power of God rescue Charlisee and Edmund from the danger and treachery that await them?
This book is filled with incredible swashbuckling adventure. The descriptions that MaryLu Tyndall includes of the pirate battles and life style were great. I loved the character development. The way she built the pasts of the characters up and revealed them slowly throughout the course of the book was great. It held my attention and drew me into the story just as much as the action packed sequences did. I also thoroughly enjoyed the strong belief in God that Edmund displayed. He was truly trying to serve Him even in the midst of wanting to be in control. It was wonderful to watch him grow in trusting God and turning control over to Him.
