Thank you so much to Entangled Amara and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of Pirate’s Promise by Lisa Kessler! This book is the 5th book in the Sentinels of Savannah series (but I haven’t read any of the other books in the series, so don’t feel like you have to) and it comes out on the 26th, so make sure you run and grab it then!
Pirate’s Promise 4/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads:
Greyson Till never found a weapon he didn’t like. As the immortal Master Gunner of a pirate ship, he’s grown his collection for over two hundred years. So when a legendary cursed blade that can cut through any material goes missing from the government’s paranormal artifact vault, he’s eager to retrieve it. Working with the secret division Department 13 has always come with its set of challenges, but this one is the worst yet.
Along with the mission comes fiery, no-nonsense paranormal weapons expert Aura Henderson, who couldn’t be less thrilled about this pairing. The last time they saw each other, Greyson accidentally blew her cover, almost killing them both. Worst of all, to get the sword, she has to pose as Greyson’s wife. The last thing she needs is to get involved with a sexy grumbly pirate, whether in reality or just pretend.
When they locate the relic, the gilded blade thirsts for blood and things aren’t what they seem. Greyson isn’t sure who to trust anymore, and he’s not about to let death come between them…
The whole idea of having a magical relics department within the government sounds so cool to me! I’m all about that. And immortal pirates who drank from the Holy Grail to become immortal? Even cooler! So this book was already starting out on a really high note. Getting to know Aura and Greyson made me like this book even more- they’re so fun and they have so much great chemistry! I really enjoyed the story- I had never heard of the sword that they were trying to get back, but it sounded like a very intense relic that definitely needed to be contained. The whole demon aspect of the book was unexpected, but definitely enjoyable. Overall, I really liked everything about this book and I’m probably going to go back and read books 1-4 now! The pacing was really great too and I was never bored or confused about what was going on- I can’t wait to read more in this world!
