# Blackstrap's Ecstasy # book

Book Review: Blackstrap's Estacy

It may be a junk, but Ecstasy is not a ship to trifle with! Nor is her captain! Pirate, harem girl, thief or noble lady? No one, not even her eclectic crew, is quite certain where Blackstrap Gennie came from and they certainly are never sure of where she will go. But as those who follow her, know, adventure, explosions, and treasure are never in short supply!

I was given this book a number of years ago by a friend who was given it by the author but just couldn't get through it. I showed some interest and the next thing I knew, it was coming home with me!

The Good: This book is filled with some really fun and interesting characters and the story, of sorts, keeps hopping along.

The Bad: This book is written in a nonlinear style which means that we get a chapter of action and a chapter of backstory regarding the character that we had just been introduced to. I really feel as if this limited the story and there could have been so much more to it than what was there.

The Summary:  I'm afraid that I have to agree with my friend and give this a meh rating. The potential for something really good was there but it just didn't hit the mark.
