However, piracy is in her blood, and draws danger to her in the way that treasure draws pirates. Some treasures are more valuable than others. Will this lesson be learned in time or will the betrayal of those around her be her undoing?

I picked up this book on a whim because I saw a recommendation for it if I liked Tamora Pierce. It turned out to be an enjoyable read that I couldn't put down. I'll definitely read it again and recommend it to others!

4.0 out of 5 stars The world/universe that Banks created was interesting and left a lot of room for some really great plot ideas. 7 December 2015
By M. Addison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Rating: 4

I truly enjoyed this book for what it was, a pirate book about a pretty strong heroine. That is what I expected from the title and blurb, and for the most part that is what I got! The author, Catherine Banks, put a lot of effort into building this world and creating some very believable and strong characters. That being said, I'm not really a fan of her writing style - it's a little more middle grades for my taste, while the actual story is more suited for an older teen audience. It's a simple story that leaves you wanting to know more at the end.

This book is long. Very long. Longer than most YA books I've read - but for the most part held my interest all the way up to the end. I just wish I'd have gotten more of my questions answered. There were also a lot of typical YA trophs used... and most of the plot was extremely predictable. (While that doesn't really bother me, I just felt like I was re-reading another YA book SET in a pirate world).

There were some exciting adventures - magic, fighting, and even love. The world/universe that Banks created was interesting and left a lot of room for some really great plot ideas. I feel like she could have done more in less words, overall. I felt like there was way more potential! I'm not sure if I would pick up a sequel. I just didn't connect or relate to this book like I wanted to, or to the way that Banks writes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended read for pirate lovers! Rated: 4 out of 5 stars 24 February 2017
By Carol Ann King - Published on Amazon.com
When I was a little girl, I loved to pretend to be a princess, but only some days. Other days were reserved for playing pirate or wizard. Never once did I consider being all three at once. That is exactly what Catherine Banks gives us in Pirate Princess.

Join a high seas adventure. Tilia is a young girl being brought up by her pirate father. Her mother, who passed away, was royalty and heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Crilan. As per her mother’s request, Tilia goes to live with her aunt and uncle to learn the finer points of being a lady. It is soon learnt that one can put a lady in a pirate, but can’t take the pirate out of the lady.

Tilia is the best of all fantasy characters. Not only is she a strong female protagonist, but she is an enjoyable one as well. The side of her that is a pirate does occasionally overtake the magical and fairy-tale princess roles, but overall, Banks has blended the three into one well-rounded personality.

The side characters are equally as fun. The current King and Queen (Tilia’s Uncle and Aunt) are regal and proper one minute and deadly the next.

As with most young adult fantasy books, readers may find falling in love a little too easy for the main characters. Hold onto your hats though, this sets up some large adventures later in the book.

The cover art, in my opinion, is a smidgen too grown up for the story. A younger model may benefit potential readers.

The language and subject matter is geared towards young adult audiences. More mature readers may find that the outcome is a little too easy to predict. The story, however, is enjoyable for all ages.

Recommended read for pirate lovers!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best kind of book... epic 22 December 2015
By Anna (Enchanted by YA) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
***I received the eBook free as a review copy from the publisher through Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review***

This is the best kind of book that sucks you in until you lose yourself in the fantastical world, filled with pirates, magic, intrigue, battles, heroines and love. It’s the kind of book that you not only don’t want to, but can’t make yourself put down. Basically it’s epic and I’m thrilled to have had the chance to read it.

A major reason is because the characters in this book are like no others. What makes them even better is that the family relationships I’ve often missed in YA are not just present, but genuine and heart-warming and absolutely hilarious (the amount of banter in this book is unparalleled) and I couldn’t stop grinning whenever they sparked up conversations. The King and Queen could be deadly one moment, single-handedly taking down a whole kingdom’s army and then teasing each other by recanting their courtship the next. The love between everyone was undeniable, often coming across in extreme protectiveness that was amusing to say the least!

I immediately fell in love with all the characters, particularly Finn who is the epitome of charming. At first I was hesitant because time-wise it very easily could have felt like insta-love which is a complete turnoff, but that quickly changed as his relationship with Tilia developed through multiple (near death) obstacles.

Tilia herself is awesome full stop. She is smart and resourceful, brutal yet compassionate and Pirate Princess is very much a coming of age story where she learns to embrace all those qualities and her roles – adapted to suit her of course. The girl will stand up for what she wants as well as for those she loves.

I also couldn’t get enough of the beautifully written world where so many fantastic events take place (the pirate festival sounds like so much fun! I would be pretty terrible in it but I can always pretend through Tilia…) There was always something to capture my attention and keep the pages turning. I cannot wait for the next instalment along with more from one of my new favourite authors Catherine Banks.
