Pacifica

Marin is cosario royalty, a pirate like her father and his father before him. Sailing the ocean to chase adventure is in her blood. But these days no one cares that the island town her people call home is named after her grandfather. They have a new leader, one who promises an end to their hunger and one who thinks that girls are meant for the kitchen or the brothel. Marin knows she's meant for more than that, and with the sudden influx of weapons on the island, and rumors of a pending deal with the enemy oil nation in her wake, she knows a big score to gain the council's favor is the only way to save her people, and herself.Ross lives a life of privilege. As the president's son he wants for nothing, but he longs for a life of adventure. On a dare, he convinces his best friend Adam to sneak out to the Docks, the site of local race riots between the poor Shorlings and the upper class. But when Adam is arrested along with the other Shorlings, and not even the president is willing to find him, Ross finds himself taking matters into his own hands. He journeys back into the Docks, ready to make deals with anyone, even a beautiful pirate, if it means Adam's safe return.When Marin and Ross meet in dangerous Shoreling territory he sees a way to get his friend back and she sees her ticket home. The ransom a presidents son would command could feed her people for years and restore her familys legacy. But somewhere in the middle of the ocean, Marin must decide if her heart can handle handing over the only person who has ever seen her as more than a pirate....

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

    PACIFICA is a compelling story of what the future could look like in a world ravaged by global warming. While that might seem like a super intense subject, PACIFICA manages to show the cost to humans while still entertaining with pirates, romance and nearly constant action. One of my most anticipated books of the year, PACIFICA did not disappoint.

    When the story opens, the reader is thrown into the middle of everything. With alternating chapters between

    ahhhh, this was just as wonderful as I'd hoped it would be!! I've been waiting--wanting--to read Pacifica for the longest time now, and it was so, so worth it. I loved Marin, I loved Ross (despite... his name... which shouldn't matter, but when it's the same as the guy from Friends, yeah), and I loved the complicated relationships they had with each other and with other people in their lives.

    This was just SO GOOD.

  • Minni Mouse

    DNF at 31% because the YA dystopian and post-apocalyptic themes are not my thing.

    THE GOOD

    1) Action was good.

    2) Plot elements were being explored well with subtle nods to current social affairs.

    THE BAD

    Book chemistry fail.

    FINAL THOUGHTS

    I'm okay, thanks.

    I received this free eARC novel from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.

    I admit, the word pirate got to me. I am a sucker for pirate novels and have a high expectation of what the novel should consist of. And the way this novel starts? Not at all to do with pirates. And I understood that, so I kept trucking along through the book, but when I got to 40%, I just couldn't do it anymore. It was all political, giving the reader the backstory of what happened to the world with global warming

    Actual rating: 3.5 stars

    This kind of book isn't really what I gravitate towards. I didn't love it, but I do respect it. Despite the fact it didn't do much for me, I would happily recommend it to the right audience.

    It's a very topical book: climate change has destroyed parts of the earth, and most of the west coast of North America is underwater (i.e. there are plenty of references to "the California Islands"). I'm sure lots of other places are underwater too, but our story is focused on this are

    Another 5 star read from Kristen Simmons!

    I loved everything about this. It was a quick read, with lots of action, and the world building was amazing. A lot of it took place on boats and the ocean, and that was so cool! I loved the 3 main characters and their differences and similarities. The dynamic between the 3 of them really made this book for me.

    This fascinating teen novel is sure to give environmentalists nightmares, set in the world after the Melt has raised sea levels to dangerous heights. Marin is a young woman who ekes out a living using her skills as a sailor and scavenger while navigating ocean waters filled with debris. Added to the mix is a plan to evacuate some portions of the population to the island of Pacifica, promised to be a paradise for its inhabitants. When you mix a romantic interest, danger, political intrigue and a ...more
