" The rulers of tiny, impoverished Swansgaard have twelve daughters and one son. While the prince's future is assured, his twelve sisters must find their own fortunes. Disguising herself as Clarence, a sailor, Princess Clarice intends to work her way to the New World. When the crew rebels, Clarice/Clarence, an expert with rapier and dagger, sides with the handsome navigator, Dominick, and kills the cruel captain. Dominick leads the now-outlawed crew in search of treasure in the secret pirate haven known as The House of Four Winds. They encounter the sorceress Shamal, who claims Dominick for her own--but Clarice has fallen hard for Dominick and won't give him up without a fight."--

I really enjoyed this new world. The outcome was a bit predictable but boy, what a trip!

YAY!! I'm the first person I know to read this. That doesn't happen very often, usually I'm way behind the trend, reading the most popular book of the year five years after the fact. *Shrugs* There are a lot of books out there, sometimes it's hard to keep up with what's popular when it's popular.

I really enjoyed this!! A rip-roaring adventure, with a couple of annoying (but not fatal) holes.I will definitely be reading the next book in the series, and at this early stage I'm excited at the thought that there will be 12 more books in the series.

I've been reading Lackey's books since the 80s, and have found much of her recent solo work disappointing - leading me to believe that most of the writing in her collaborations was done by her co-authors. However, this book bears Lackey's stamp, and is much better than her most recent Valdemar books and some of her Elemental Masters books as well. She and James Mallory are clearly in full partnership on this book, and it's very readable. The plot moves quickly, the characters are likeable or dastardly as appropriate to the story, and it suffers from none of the editing problems of some of her other works. I'd recommend it for a short, fun read. Looking forward to reading about the other daughters!
