About The Book

Aleja whiles away her days in her family’s dusty tavern in Seville, dreaming of distant lands and believing in the kind of magic that she’s only ever read about in books. After all, she’s always being told that girls can’t be explorers.
But her life is changed forever when adventure comes for her in the form of a fabled vessel called the Ship of Shadows. Crewed by a band of ruthless women, with cabin walls dripping with secrets, the ship has sailed right out of a legend. And it wants Aleja.
Once on board its shadowy deck, she begins to realize that the sea holds more secrets than she ever could have imagined. The crew are desperately seeking something, and their path will take them through treacherous waters and force them to confront nightmare creatures and pitch-dark magic. It will take all of Aleja’s strength and courage to gain the trust of her fellow pirates – and discover what they are risking everything to find.


My Thoughts

This is the book I’ve always wanted to read when I was a child, a brave group of women that have adventures with their own ship, who said that women have always to be rescued by a prince? They can save themselves without anyone’s help!
There are adventures that doesn’t matter your age, you’ll love to be part of them. That’s the case of this book, it will take you to an amazing adventure, full of brave and ruthless women, they will make you dream again. Ready to embark on the only trip you need this summer?
I’ll admit that I have started reading books focused for the little ones recently, I have a little son and I love reading to him so I am looking for the best books to “teach” him while he is having an amazing adventure; this book fits everything I search on a book. Adventure, magic and brave women, it’s time that we get used to main characters of both gender, not only male, don’t you think? And to make this a normality all kids have to read all type of books, it doesn’t matter if the main character is a boy or a girl as long as the story is good and they enjoy the trip, or at least that’s what I think.
This is a book to make you travel while you are on your sofa, let the imagination flow and the thirst for adventures overcome you, because that’s what books are made for; dreams, adventure and life! Ready?
