Natalie C Parker is the author of several YA titles with HarperTeen, as well as the forthcoming Seafire trilogy with Razorbill. She lives in Kansas where she runs Madcap Retreats (an organization offering workshops and retreats for aspiring and established writers) with her wife.
Courageous Captain Caledonia has lost pretty much everything. Her family have been killed by atrocious Aric Athair and his brutal Bullet crew and she’s now set on avenging their deaths. With vibrant world-building and crisply compelling characterisation from the off, Caledonia is soon confronted by a crippling choice: should she offer to help to the Bullet boy who saves her best friend, or would that put her entire crew in jeopardy? “She didn’t think she’d done a good thing. Keeping a Bullet on board was the most foolish thing she could think of...Maybe they’d all end up dead.” The boy’s behaviour confuses Caledonia - it’s impossible to tell whether his “attempt to appear small and non-threatening...was genuine or deceitful”, and then he claims he can help her... Swirling with sisterly solidarity, buzzing with intrigue and action, and tingling with tension, this is great for readers who love female-fronted fantasy, such as the novels of Melinda Salisbury, Sarah J Maas and Cassandra Clare.
High seas, high stakes, and high time for revenge... Caledonia Styx let down her guard once - and her family were murdered by ruthless warlord Aric Athair and his blood-thirsty Bullets. Now captain of a crew of girls who have lost everything to the Bullets, she has sworn never to show mercy again. But when a rogue Bullet saves the life of Caledonia's best friend, she faces an impossible choice. If she lets the boy live could he help them bring down Athair - or will he destroy them all?
After her family is killed by corrupt warlord Aric Athair and his bloodthirsty army of Bullets, Caledonia Styx is left to chart her own course on the dangerous and deadly seas. She captains her ship, the Mors Navis, with a crew of girls and women just like her, who have lost their families and homes because of Aric and his men. The crew has one mission- stay alive, and take down Aric?s armed and armored fleet.But when Caledonia?s best friend and second-in-command barely survives an attack thanks to help from a Bullet looking to defect, Caledonia finds herself questioning whether to let him join their crew. Is this boy the key to taking down Aric Athair once and for all...or will he threaten everything the women of the Mors Navis have worked for?Pairing gorgeous prose with pulse-pounding action, Seafire reminds us of the importance of sisterhood and unity in the face of oppression and tyranny.
