This book has everything that I look for in a book – pirates, robots, a female Robin Hood, and it sounds like there’s even a love story! I have already added it to my TBR and can’t wait until I get the chance to pick it up! Stop by the Nerd Blast Site for more info on this exciting new book 🙂
And look at that cover? Yes, I have said it before and will say it again – I buy books based on their covers more often than their synopsis. There is so much about this cover that I love – it’s simple (there isn’t too much going on but still enough to catch your eye), it’s intriguing (a robot arm – seriously? I’m hooked there!), and I love the color scheme!
