About the Book:
An unlikely Chosen One, her pirate captain ex-lover, and a treasure-hunting nun. A prophecy that unleashes a fire-breathing sea serpent pouring its wrath on the isles. A magical scepter with the power to destroy—or save—the world.
Samara Davalos wants nothing more than to escape her island of religious hypocrites. But when the infamous pirate Captain Baz Blackwater shows up offering a chance at a magical treasure—and secret revenge—she jumps at the chance. Seraphina prays every day for her wayward twin sister to stop chasing the pirate life and find the peace she’s discovered in her new quiet life at the convent. Yet when Seraphina uncovers an ancient prophecy revealing the horrifying curse of the treasure Samara and Baz seek, she must leave her convent—risking the wrath of her Order—and search for the truth about Macario’s Scepter. In a world of friendship and betrayal, monsters and magic, seedy pubs and adventure on the high seas, will Samara’s magical powers, Baz’s cunning plans, and Seraphina’s unshakable faith be enough to slay a cursed sea serpent destroying everything they love?
I absolutely loved watching the Indiana Jones movies growing up. Adventure, travel and just a hint of romance was my jam as a teen!!
Macario’s Scepter felt so much like one of those Indiana stories that I was immediately brought back to my younger days. So fun.
Two sisters, that couldn’t be more opposite, are the center of this story, alongside a Pirate captain. There are Pirate ships, sailing on the open seas, mysterious islands with untold treasures, bad guys, towns getting torn apart during wild chases, and on and on.
This was a really fun adventure and great for readers that like their stories with lots of action!
