Book I Really Did ButI really did but ust didn t There were Fantasy elements but not enough to make it a Fantasy novel There were Mystery elements but it s not really a Mystery Stuff happens but it doesn t feel like an Adventure novel There s a lot of talking but I never really connected with the characters Only one Half Ton seemed charming The whole thing reads like it was written by a pre college student that shows promise but needs to refine his craft This is an entertaining read I very much liked the elements of magical realism especially the critters I found the characters likeable and enjoyed the author s often poetic descriptive writing My only complaint is that there is a lot going on here It can be difficult to keep track of the various storylines and some don t get their due I d love to see some of the secondary plots fleshed out in their own books so this one could focus on the ghost ship and its peopleDisclaimer I received this book from the author in a Goodreads giveaway All opinions are my own Good plot but I didn t care for the author s writing style I was given this book in
