    WOW. SO GOOD. MY CLASSICS-LOVING HEART SOARS... ...RTC! According to the author, we should expect: "~ A world inspired by Ancient Rome ~ Lots and lots of political intrigue ~ A villainous, power-hungry senator bent on conquest ~ Slow burn romance ~ Exciting sea voyages...

    In a world divided, one people, the Maarin, control the secrets of the in-between. The Maarin are a seafaring people who recover lost and stolen goods, as well as trade along the coasts. They are the only people who not only know of the true existence of the East and West, they ...

    I can't wait for readers to dive into DARK SHORES. Here's a few things to expect! ~ A world inspired by Ancient Rome ~ LOTS of political intrigue ~ A villainous, power-hungry senator bent on conquest ~ Slow burn romance (as if I could write a book without kissing!) ~ Exciting se...

    A million years ago, back when I read more than four books a month and actually had time to post reviews, I read Danielle L. Jensen's debut novel,Stolen Songbird andreally enjoyed it. So, I was pretty eager to try out this book and see where this sweeping, epic story about pirates ...

    Ahhhhh! Why did it have to end?! ???? And I have to wait until May for the sequel! ?? So obviously I really loved this book. It was one of my most anticipated for the year and I'm sooo happy it didn't disappoint! I LOVED the ancient Roman influence, the politics, ...

    Actual rating 3.75/5 stars. Dark Shores is the first instalment in the Dark Shores series, involving high-stakes oceanic travel, piracy and plundering, and a world divided by religion and politics. East must never meet West and West does not know that East exists at all. But all tha...

    This book isn?t about pirate/piracy tho we got a glimpse of the adventure on the ship.. the story is more about empire and politics and battles and magic and gods inspired by ancient Roman! The book told by 2 POVs (Marcus and Teriana) There were few things I love and don?t like...
