What it do, shawty in the hood?! I don't know. My gangsterness is coming out today for some odd reason. Anyway, today it is Tuesday. You are welcome for me pointing that out to you. It's actually March 15th which means another book has been welcomed into our world today. This time it is a book about fencing, time-traveling, and pirates. I have never read a novel about pirates so I think I'm going to go pick this one up to be my first. Which book is it?
Steel by Carrie Vaughn! A couple of people have read it because of ARC last year but not many have and so for that, I shall tell you what it is. *description was taken from Barnesandnoble.com*
It was a slender length of rusted steel, tapered to a point at one end and jagged at the other, as if it had been broken. A thousand people would step over it and think it trash, but not her.
This was the tip of a rapier.
Sixteen-year-old Jill has fought in dozens of fencing tournaments, but she has never held a sharpened blade. When she finds a corroded sword piece on a Caribbean beach, she is instantly intrigued and pockets it as her own personal treasure.
The broken tip holds secrets, though, and it transports Jill through time to the deck of a pirate ship. Stranded in the past and surrounded by strangers, she is forced to sign on as crew. But a pirate's life is bloody and brief, and as Jill learns about the dark magic that brought her there, she forms a desperate scheme to get home-one that risks everything in a duel to the death with a villainous pirate captain.
It sounds really interesting and now that I think about it, I'll buy it as soon as I can. I really like pirates but never read anything about them which is beyond weird to me. If you read an ARC tell us how it is in the comments below. If you haven't read it, are you going to buy it?
