Review: The Reckoning by MaryLu Tyndall



About the book:
When Morgan Shaw crept into the hold of an old pirate ship replica at San Diego’s Annual Tall Ship Festival, her only intention was to avoid the guy who had just dumped her and who was now boarding the ship with two women on his arm. What she didn’t expect was to wake up aboard a real pirate ship three-hundred years in the past. But of course, it wasn’t real. Her wealthy father had obviously staged it all in an effort to get her mind off her upcoming chemo. Or had he?

Pirate Rowan Dutton seeks enough treasure to repay a debt to his sister and reinstate the Dutton name among British Jamaican Society. He is but one major haul away from accomplishing his goal when a strange woman appears on his ship and causes him to lose his prey. Despite his anger, he is enthralled with the little minx, her strange clothing, odd speech, and her insistence that they are all actors playing a charade paid for by her father.

Yet when the brazen little lady divulges Rowan’s secret to a longtime nemesis, events are triggered that could cost them both their lives and change the course of history forever.

My thoughts:


The Reckoning was one unique read. I've never read a time-travel novel that was also a pirate novel! It was so interesting to see the two unite and it made for a fun read!

I really loved the characters and how authentic the pirate angle felt. Rowan reminded me a little bit of Capt. Jack Sparrow and Morgan had a lot of spunk.

I liked how Morgan didn't right away realize that she had time traveled...I feel like in her circumstance it was believable. It was actually quite funny how she kept thinking the pirates were actors hired by her father. ;)

There was one thing towards the end of the book that I didn't like it. I won't say what it was because I don't want to spoil the book, but it had to do with Morgan and her disease.

Overall, a great story and I recommend it if you enjoy pirate and/or time-travel books! There was some romance and rogue behavior, but that's to be expected when you are dealing with pirates. ;)
